"Much of, if not all of 'What Did You Expect from The Vaccines?' suffers from a complete lack of intelligence, candidness or originality: elements that help make guitar-based music interesting. That stark fact goes out the window though if this thing sells by the bucketload."

"The final four tracks, however, boast an unanticipated flash of brilliance from The Vaccines and are consequently very much worth exploring... The less they do big dumb bravado, it seems, the more there is to love about this London bunch."

"Other bands – notably The Drums – have trod similar indie rock'n'roll territory recently. But The Vaccines' hooks, smart lyrics make them more fun... an overdue return to noisy pop."
