Neve- - they've finally arrived

"Well well well, look who decided to show up. This band made a splash in the 1998 film "The Faculty" with their song "It's Over Now" featured on the soundtrack. It sent me, and few other people on a wild goose chase for this band. I personally checked Amazon every month to see if they'd even released an album, which they hadn't.But alas, they have now and I'm as in love with them as I was two years ago. The guitar riffs and resonating chords adds to the lyrics that fit perfectly within the bounds of teen strife. Though not a "hard" type of rock, Neve sides with the more poppish genre, best relating to bands like Stroke 9 or even a little like Matchbox 20. (All the bands with a numeral included in their name). The songs are certainly catchy and chords, especially the opening one on "It's Over Now" tend to pull at a couple of emotions, as well as the heart felt lyrics accompanied by honeyed-vocals. Bottom line, the harmony works, the songs are catchy, and they can play their instruments."
The best band you have never heard of

"I accidentaly stumbled across Neve while browsing amazon.com. I was hooked instantly, and ordered the album. This is postively one of the best CDs I have ever heard. The music is catchy without being sugary or too poppy. The lyrics are thoughtful and heartfelt, and John Stephens voice is fantastic. Sadly, Neve does not exist anymore, due to Columbia's poor marketing. Neve's only radio exposure was when their song "It's Over Now" was used in the movie "The Faculty". Other notable songs that could of been radio hits include "Absent", "Skyfall", and "3 Years". But Neve fans should not fear. John Stephens has re-united with his old band, now called GENIUS (formerly called La Unified), and a new CD is on the way..."
No question about it - buy this CD!

"Neve's American debut album is absolutely amazing. Already proven to be a smash in Japan, after taking just one listen to this album, you can tell why. You can feel their energy and passion in each and every song. From "Absent," my favorite song on the album, to "Freeform," with its raw energy, this album is a must-listen, a must-buy, and a definite will-love! Neve's lyrics are another one of the things that make them just a little different from all the other alternative-rock-pop whatever-you-wish bands out there. They really make you think. Well done, Neve! Two thumbs up, no doubt about it!"
