Vain - Rolling with the Punches 2016

Recommended Posts

Oh, holy shit. Refresh my memory, dudes - a lot of these songs are actually old songs that have been re-recorded, aren't they? This song sounds like it was from the 'No Tears For You' / 'Cindy' sessions, before their debut. I absolutely freakin' love that. I must own this album now!! If the rest of the album is like this, this one will proudly sit alongside their first three albums. Not to mention it'll rate extremely high this year.

My distaste for Vain is certainly known as Beat the Bullet a massively over rated steamer.

 

This song is a hundred times superior to anything from BTB but I am skeptic that this is "new" material. Sounds very dated in a good way someone wonders if this is a cleaned up demo?

 

Either way good song, I won't be beating any. Jokers to the record store to buy but it was a fine listen.

I pledged and got the digital download. Sounds like classic Vain to me. I'm also pretty pumped that they are issuing their entire discography on vinyl.

My distaste for Vain is certainly known as I constantly, mistakenly call the debut album Beat the Bullet.

 

Fixed.

If you like No Respect, All Those Strangers and Enough Rope you're gonna love this album. The sound of the download from the band is a little off sounding so I hope the cd sounds better but the songs are there and guitars are great and of course Davy sounds great too.

Yes i too received the digital download and have played this album completely through at least seven times now and i love the entire thing! Classic sounding Vain and just solid catchy songs. And i believe these are all new songs, i think it was the last album Enough Rope that had some old demos that were re-recorded

Not all new songs. There are two older ones I think.

And they're on the road again. Playing three hours from me in a week. Got the kids and girlfriend coming out of hospital that day after a foot operation so looks like I'll miss them again. Autograph on the bill as well.

Chris Damien Doll talked about on mafia Facebook page I think. Passion was definitely one of them.

I'd be absolutely amazed if 'Long Gone' isn't an old song too. Like I said, sounds like it was written in the same week 'Cindy' and 'No Tears For You' were penned, even before 'No Respect.'

That could be the one but as far as Cindy goes that was part of the Roadcrew songs and I don't believe it was a pre-No Respect demo like No Tears for You.

Yeah I dunno, man, 1987 I think it was first recorded. And still one of my favourite tunes.

That one's definitely modern Vain, but a really nice version of modern Vain... taking enough from the past to make it better than what I've heard from them in recent times. I really like it.

Davy is great, such an original vocalist and lyricist. Been holding off listening to anything and hoping it's heavier than the last one.

 

I watched an interview with Davy from back in the day on YouTube and he's a lot different from what I imagined him to be like, and sound like, to what I'd imagined after all these years to listening to his albums.
