    As their third album in 25 years, V for Vaselines showcases a surprisingly staid band, but one that occasionally flashes its early brilliance for listeners.

    V for Vaselines leaves a lasting pop smear.

    Interspersed among the cheerful speed anthems are pretty, delicate moments that highlight the enduring songwriting bond that prevails between Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee.

    V For Vaselines has been released a few months too late, for V For Vaselines is a summer album.

    Vaselines fans will not be disappointed or surprised by these tunes. [Oct 2014, p.91]

    As a Vaselines album, V can't help but be disappointing. None of the unpredictable magic they used to be able to conjure, in the distant past and on Sex with an X, is on display, and they seem to be resigned to the fact that they are just a good rock band now.

    The tracks begin to bleed together way before the halfway point of the album and there's not a single surprise to be had throughout.
