Review by Darren Kerr
I was actually pretty indifferent about this disc from Toronto's
Vibrolux until the vocalist came in and fucked it all up. He has
a singing style that sounds as if he will detonate if his voice
reaches above a Britpop whisper. In fact, the overall sound of
Vibrolux is Stone Roses Lite, or the Jesus and Mary Chain with
the bile removed. The trippy wah-wah guitars, groovy drums, and
contrived sampled beats are from Psych Fuzz Mold B. This did nothing
for me, but if you are someone who thought that Second Coming
was the best Stone Roses album, then this is tailormade for
your delicate if not questionable tastes.
