The debut album by The Vines. Widely regarded as one of the best debut albums ever made by a rock band since the eighties. The twelve tracks on Highly Evolved mesh between sharp pop-punk tunes such as the title track Highly Evolved and Get Free to the mellower ballads of Maryjane and Autumn Shade all the while littered with front man Craig Nicholls' shrieks and sreams. This album has all the elements of a true rock and roll record although doesn't really deliver anything new. It is easy to hear the influences of Nirvana and The Beatles throughout the LP and similarities between The Strokes and White Stripes.

Also track one on the above album:

I'm feelin happy
So highly evolved
My times a riddle that'll never be solved
Dreamin for somethin
Reachin for somethin
Just waitin for the sun to carry me in

If you feel low
You can buy love
From a payphone
I don't feel low

My brother Bill
He work for the market
Life is an arrow now and he is the target
Dreamin for somethin
Reachin for somethin
Just waitin for the sun to carry me in

If you feel low
You can buy love
From a payphone
I don't feel love

Highly evolved

I don't feel low
Highly evolved
