Veni Vidi Vicious (2002)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: May 07, 2002; Lead Performance: The Hives; Genre: Rock

It's Swedish engineering, garage-rock style: Five sartorially savvy stooges with a knack for '70s punk and tongue-in-chic cockiness churn out one mini-epic after another -- in just under 30 minutes. With blustering blasts like ''Hate to Say I Told You So,'' they almost vindicate the near-deafening hoopla that preceded this major-label debut.
