Product Description

Brand new 2LP studio release by Australia's The Vines. The Vines have been a mercurial band since they arrived in 2002. Their talent took hold when the debut album 'Highly Evolved' launched them as one of rock music's new saviours. It was a height though that the volatile band was never going to maintain for long. At some point the tales took over the talent and became their namesake camouflage. Out of sight the band might have been, but not out of the studio. Today The Vines announce a new album 'Wicked Nature' being release worldwide. For the first time it's a double album, 22 brand new songs. On 'Wicked Nature' frontman Craig Nicholls makes his debut in the role of record producer. He co-produced disc one with regarded Australian tape loving analogue producer Paul McKercher (You Am I) and then he assumes full control over the production duties for the second disc. 'Wicked Nature' is the bands first independent release. The album will be released on a new label of the same name.

I agree. Winning days and wicked nature are my two favourite albums by the Vines.

A grunge revival with strong vocals and beautiful harmonies.

One of their Best Albums 8 Sept. 2014
By Hello - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not only do we get a new album from The Vines but we get a 2 CD set. This was a pretty odd move considering most people don't buy CDs anymore but thats also what makes this album so great. It has a really old school mid 90's feel to it but still has the originality The Vines have always put into their music. I've never heard guitar riffs like in Vines albums or the way Craig echos his scream in the coolest way on many Vine tracks throughout the years.
This album ranks as one of their best. My all time favorite of The Vines is still "Winning Days" an album that got hammered by the critics but has found a lot of love from the hardcore Vines fans over the years. "Winning Days" is one of those albums that you need to listen to more then once and have it connect to you to fully understand it. "Wicked Nature" has that feel as well. Each song grows and grows on you. Lyrics are mostly about nature "Killing the Planet" and isolation and depression "Funny Thing" and the effects of love "Ladybug". I find myself constantly wanting to listen to this CD over and over again.
I hope more people find out about this album. I really feel this band is underrated and people need to revisit The Vines music because real fans of rock and roll are missing out on something special.
I hope The Vines tour soon. This is something they don't really due due to Craigs Nicholls Asperger syndrome. This has been a huge curse on the band. I say this b/c it has effected their touring and due to Craigs behavior he has lost all other remaining band members over the years. But I feel it fuels some of the best songwriting skills I have ever heard. Craig is a true talent, one that most people don't understand. His talent for making music is something of legends yet most people don't see that and dismiss The Vines.
Well for those who love The Vines please support and get this album for older fans that might have given up on the band give them another listen. You wont be disappointed.

One Of The Best Albums Yet! 7 Sept. 2014
By PuffyDaMoose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I personally enjoy the bare essence of The Vines's music, and Wicked Nature does a great job capturing what they're all about. Sure it may not get the greatest reviews from critics and other sources. But I feel this album definitely will not disappoint a Vines fan.

Disk 1:

From the addictive Heavy grunge punk hooks of Metal Zone, going into the catching droning song Ladybug right after. Which shoots straight into fast paced Green Utopia and dirty distortion ridden Psychomatic (the title being a word the frontman Craig Nichols created himself). Then comes track 5, Killing The Planet, showing some personal views of modern society with a bit of a mellower beatles set rhythm to it. But you definitely see a lot of progression in Craigs songwriting in it. Once the song comes to a mellowing sudden stop, the next song being Anything You Say goes into a gritty pop-like jam with some great hooks! The next song being Venus Fly Trap seeming like a dark, anti-love song still hitting out emotion song after song. Afterwards is single worthy Good Enough with definitely a lot of drive with very tight arrangements. The song may seem short lived in length to some, but it's so pure and simple. It really couldn't be put any other way in my opinion.
Then out of nowhere Out Of The Loop starts loud, full of angst, and one of the fastest punk like songs The Vines has ever put out.
Smoothly transitioning into Rave It giving a hard distorted push into rhythm settling down in the pre-chorus setting forth the catchy "Now come on get up, now come on get up, now come on get up, hear what I say" before the loud impending chorus. Afterwards starting up the steady and calm song Wicked Nature (named after the album) rockets into a space jam with a very freeing atmospheric feel to it. Ending with really cool effect on the listener when the guitar goes into a phaser effect drifting off.
The last track Into The Fire carries off with a very deep and serious tone to it. But a great ending to disk one.

Disk 2:

Reincarnation starts off where In The Fire left off. Being connected from death (into the fire) to rebirth (reincarnation). Definitely a very clean and somewhat space like song. Perfect for starting off the second disk.
Love Is Gone sounding like a 60's song poking fun at couples problems with love. Going into the Hymn like song Truth, with excellent acoustic and atmospheric qualities complementing eachother throughout the song (definitely one of my favorites off the album not gonna lie)
Afterwards is the very impressive track Slightly Alien, rooting from the feeling of alienation. I was amazed by how much emotion can be brought from myself, the listener from that tune. Which just goes to show that this album is truly something true and pure. But the vibe gets almost torn appart by the angry and bratty (in a good way haha) Everything Else.
Fly Away is another very simple song that sounds a little country like in its sound.
Girl I Want is 60s like as well, and results in Craig screaming to reach the notes in the chorus, with an amazing result for the listener. Afterwards Clueless kicks back, and echos with unique chord progression, sounding very promising.
Going into fast paced Darkest Shadow but slows down into the final track. Funny Thing is a groovy, bittersweet song about some touchy internal struggles, and trying hard to cope with them. Going into a full band jam and fading out, leaving the album breathtaking, and almost addictive.

I honestly gave it another listen to throughout my day after I heard it and got better understandings and a better grasp to what the album is really all about.

To me this has to be the most brutally honest Vines album yet. When it comes down to the music itself, the bad reviews, the critics, even this review! The Vines are better than ever hitting out the best material they can. And I really hope despite the lineup changes and the media, that The Vines still make great music and continue to inspire long time listeners (like me) and new ones alike.

I hope this review helped you in your buying choice

Two Is Better Than One. 8 Sept. 2014
By C. McCoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Reading reviews for Vines albums can be frustrating for someone who has consistently enjoyed their music. I am someone who really loved Winning Days and Melodia and has eagerly awaited new from them (I guess them is really just Craig now). I understand that Vines music lacks the kind of depth that critics apparently have come to expect from rock music, but that's never been what the Vines were about. I'll admit that Vision Valley and their last one before Wicked Nature seemed to coast on the Vines formula, so I was a little worried that a double album would contain some weaker material, but I was captivated throughout my first few listens. I'd also like to ad, that sound is just gorgeous. Whoever engineered this thing did a very nice job. The sound is surprisingly consistent considering the album was recorded in two separate spurts with different producers. The vinyl sounds just gorgeous, and it was such fun experience to listen to a true double album on vinyl in 2014.

This is more like their first couple releases - pretty raw R&R as opposed to the more mellow stuff on their more recent releases. On a sound quality note, on disc one it approaches a more "lo-fi", less polished approach. Disc two is slightly better, both in sound and (IMO) song writing. If you like their early stuff, you'll like this, I suspect.
