Synopsis

Amazon.com
A California trio signed to a major label straight out of high school, Eve 6 plays the most potent brand of punk-pop this side of Green Day. The group's self-titled debut is an engaging mix of Jon Siebels's snarling guitars, Tony Fagenson's thundering drums, and bassist Max Collins's emphatic vocals and surprisingly erudite lyrics. These guys may have blown off their SATs to take a crack at rock stardom, but there's nothing lacking in their verbal skills on the hit singles "Inside Out" and "Leech." Hopefully, their math is good, too, so they can count the royalty checks from this short (it clocks in at under 40 minutes, rare in these days of overlong CDs), sharp rock gem. --Daniel Durchholz

Their debut is easily their best...
Andrew Ellington | I'm kind of everywhere | 04/16/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In my humble opinion, Eve 6's debut (and self titled) album is nearly flawless. As far as the whole pop/rock thing goes, these guys outdo nearly everyone else. This album is spunky, witty, engaging and memorable from start to finish. With lyrics that could go down as some of the cleverest and thought provoking in recent history, these boys certainly started at the top.

I do like their sophomore album `Horrorscope' quite a bit, but even it pales in comparison to the consistency they presented on this album.

The album opens with a bang. `How Much Longer' very much helps set the tone for the album. It has punch and lyrics that are strategically spun around catchy guitar riffs. The chorus is chant-worthy, and the fact that this is one of the albums lesser tracks says a lot. The album only gets better from here. `Inside Out' (still a brilliant song) and `Leech' follow suit, lifting the album to new heights. You can add `Tongue Tied' to that list, as some of the most memorable songs of the 90's. I think everyone that I knew was in love with `Inside Out' when it dropped. Even my sister, who hates this kind of music, was engaged.

You can stop reading now if you want to sing this song to yourself for a few minutes.

`Showerhead' was my favorite song on here for a long time. The content is very suggestive and erotic for this breed of music. It is unexpected, and simply one of the best `I hate you for cheating on me' songs out there. The musical arrangement is also one of the best on the album, completely tonal in the way it captures the theme. There need be no words when the music itself conveys this much emotion. `Jesus Nightlight' is also very emotionally stirring. It is a very slow yet very strong song. I love the way Max uses the vulnerability in his voice to really `go there' with this song. It is songs like these that show that this band is not just a one-trick pony.

They are not all gimmick.

Songs like `Open Road Song' and `Superhero Girl' and `Saturday Night' are upbeat and some of the catchiest pop/rock songs every written. This type of music suited these guys so much. These songs are fun and jovial and just move you instantly to thump for feet and bob your head and sing every word with the radio up as loud as it possibly can go.

The albums final two tracks are the least impressive. `There's A Face' is not a bad song (I actually like the musical arrangement), but it's a tad forgettable (a little sleepy). `Small Town' is good, but falls short of greatness. It's not a bad song, but compared to the rest of the album it just doesn't stack up.

So, in the end this is certainly one of the best albums to come out of the late 90's and one that should be in your musical library. I could listen to this album from start to finish any day of the week. My suggestion is that you do the same!"
