You've probably heard the title track of this EP, at least, so you can make your own mind up about that. I like it a lot so I bought it on 12". It's a good song, the other songs are good too (as useful as one subjective opinion is on such matters). Beware that one song is presented in two mixes, so you're only really getting three different songs. In fact both versions of "Do you wanna man?" have a silly "scratchy record" sound on them, which had me examining my stylus for a while. I also have to report two bad things about the actual vinyl.

1. The hole is too small! I literally couldn't get it onto the spindle of my Project turntable. Whoever produced the record needs to change their drill bit, or whatever they use. Unicorn horn possibly. Had to open out the hole with a little tool on my penknife. Now the record isn't quite 100% centered so there's a smidgin of side-to-side movement when you watch the stylus (which is what I do when listening to records).

2. (This is a bizarrely common problem I've noticed with 12" singles and EPs.) They've printed the wrong speed on the label. It says "33 1/3rpm" but it most definitely sounds better at 45. I've crossed out 33 and written 45 in pencil.

On the plus side, it's one of the only brand new 12" records I've bought this year that isn't slightly warped.
That's all. Bye!

It's Ok, Which is very disappointing considering their previous 2 albums.
If the production on one of the songs sounds bloomin' awful, like it's coming out of an old gramophone, which is ok when you're listening on record (aren't I the smug one now?) but makes you sick when you try to listen to a digital copy.
It's a shame I was at grandma's house when it happened. I'll not be invited back for a while. I miss her.

Actually I always knew how beautiful title song " Melody Calling" is as the band has been playing since their UK tour on May.

However, I was totally admired for other 3 songs as well!!

The Vaccines is going to another way as they were showing off to us how they are great!

I can't wait for their 3rd album!

Melody Calling is a great song to begin with, but the slight record static sound does lower the sound quality. Overall it's a great EP, especially 'Everybody's Gonna Let You Down'.

I have heard in a while and for just 2 quid? You literally are fool if you like The Vaccines or any modern band for that matter and do not claim this steal. Well done Boys!

I loved their debut album, packed full of poppy/punky tunes. Their second album wasn't as good, and these tunes are even worse. Their ok - but that's all.

Like another reviewer said, this has to be played at 45 instead of 33&1/3rd as claimed. Other than that, great music and great product.

I am totally satisfied from buying this record. I will still buy other vinyls by this way. Thank you very much.
