  • Though the Vaseline's initial fame in America came courtesy of a ringing endorsement from Kurt Cobain (Nirvana, in fact, covered three songs by the Vaselines), the cult Scottish band has found considerable posthumous staying power. In 2009, Sub Pop released the double-disc ENTER THE VASELINES, a re-mastered updating of THE WAY OF THE VASELINES. In addition to all of the tracks on that release, this new edition also contains live tracks and rare demos. While the Vaseline's sublime sloppiness is endearing and, at times, downright brilliant, it is often best taken in small doses. ENTER THE VASELINES is indeed a big gulp of songs, yet it makes for near perfect one-stop shopping, bringing together everything available by the band in one place and acting as an ideal collection for neophytes and completists alike.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.92) - "Transcending twee with overdriven amps, frankly sexual lyrics, and superior songwriting, the group finally found a global audience thanks to Kurt Cobain's patronage..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "With their dirty mouths and pretty faces, pop perspicacity and knack for making a bloody racket, there's no questions the Vaselines were worth rescuing from obscurity."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.97) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Nirvana's cover of both 'Molly's Lips' and 'Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam' confirmed The Vaselines' place in the annals of contemporary music."
