The Vines: Wicked Nature (Wicked Nature Music, 2014)

Wicked Nature

Tras un considerable paréntesis de cuatro años en los que a Craig Nicholls le ha dado tiempo a tomar las riendas y el control creativo de toda la banda, The Vines, que se reforman de nuevo como trío, vuelven a recaer en los vicios y virtudes de sus anteriores trabajos: si quieres encontrar el espíritu y la música de comienzos de los noventa reencarnados en Nirvana, éste es tu disco. 
Wicked Nature es el sexto trabajo de estudio de los chicos del australiano Craig: guitarrazos a todo trapo, nihilismo latente durante los veintidos cortes, medios tiempos (que no ayudan demasiado a la digestión general del álbum) y, en fin, más o menos todos los elementos característicos de The Vines.

“Usually, a double album signals one of two things: it’s either an artist’s ambitious magnum opus or the height of indulgence. In the Vines‘ case, it is neither. Wicked Nature sprawls over the course of two LPs but it plays as if the band just jammed two standard-issue Vines albums together — which is kind of true, as the two LPs were recorded at different times with different engineers, completing the second record as the first was being mixed. Neither album on Wicked Nature sounds like they come from a different session but neither sounds incoherent, either. All 22 songs here sound cut from the same cloth as all the Vines‘ other five studio albums, the one constant in them all being leader Craig Nicholls‘ undying love for cleaning up Nirvana‘s grunge. He spikes this with a little bit of the ’60s, ranging from garage stomps to candied psychedelic swirls, an influence that has become more prominent as the years roll on, but at the root of everything is Nicholls‘ worship of Kurt Cobain, which surfaces via his yowl and recycling of the minor chords from “About a Girl.” He’s doing this about as well as he ever has — he has highs, he has some lows, but spends most of his time somewhere in between — largely because he’s doing it the same he always has. No matter the lineup, no matter the year, Nicholls puts the sounds of 1993 through the prism of 2003″ (All Music)
