The sweet muse of tune calls, and Justin Young, for once, listens. The result is an oddly unramshackle, non-jaunty, smooth and even mellow version of The Vaccines, with shades of Teenage Fanclub and Big Star. It’s… nice. We could get used to it. But who are you people, and what have you done with The Vaccines? Well, that’s that third album title taken care of, at least.
