Classic twenty eight - Try Vitriol


THE long-running rumour of a new My Vitriol release on the horizon is again circulating - so what better time to return to the group's debut, their only album.
2001's Finelines, the album which triggered the nu gaze movement that spawned acts such as Amusement Parks On Fire and Silversun Pickups, is a grungey, overdriven corker of a collection.
Unusually ambitious for a debut release, the group wrapped up assured singles such as Always and Grounded in a speaker-busting level of feedback and interspersed them with interesting instrumentals and a welter of unexpected twists and turns mid-song.
And of course, the acid test, My Vitriol's Finelines still sounds as fine today as it ever did.
