I wasn't exactly a big-time passenger on the Vines bandwagon when they first broke through in 2002 (though I did prefer their debut album to that of the Strokes'). Well, time flies, and these once-rough-and-tumble Aussies are back with their third LP, Vision Valley (April 4th). In general, this is a quite a departure for the band. The production style is positively "polished," which may be a turn-off to old and new fans alike. Should an old dog learn new tricks? Should a leopard change its spots? Does anybody still give a shit about the Vines?
