Album Review

Kicking things off with the building title track, Remy Zero makes quite the first impression on The Golden Hum. The momentum keeps up through "Glorious #1," the fast and furious second track, then slows down into a catchy U2-style rocker, "Out/In." That is probably the best point of reference for this band, as many of their songs are similar to Achtung Baby-era U2. It is that brand of moody pop/rock that carries the fivesome through the album, but it is also what keeps the album from truly being spectacular. The resemblance to the Irish foursome is amazing; the ghost of Bono haunts these tracks like a specter, always reminding you that what you are listening to is pretty good, but not the real thing. To be fair to the band, the music is nothing to be ashamed of; it is all performed very well and it is even catchy. But there is nothing here that has not been done before, and as competent as they might be, that still does not make the album any more listenable. Fans of the band will probably enjoy this very much, but casual listeners may have a hard time looking past the averageness of the whole affair.

Customer Reviews

Remy Zero's final installment to date.....

A truly superb album, one that borrows influences from the likes of U2 and Crowded House to create something special. Unfortunately their last album before they parted ways and was, in my opinion their best. Having heard both their self titled first album and Villa Elaine this album tops them. All three were great albums and there was a huge improvement between each one of them. The Golden Hum is full of catchy tunes and great lyrics to match. Cinjun Tate has a fantastic voice to deliver the bands great writing work. Perfect Memory and Belong carrying great melodies and deep meaningful lyrics, with the more louder songs of Save me and Impossibility showing a different side to their music. Over the Rails is another fine song, again like most on this album, providing real good chorus' and verses that make you want to listen again and again. This is a must buy album. I just hope the continuous speculated rumours of them reforming come true.

sik!!!!!

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s

Birmingham, AL-based Remy Zero dared to be moody and poetic when most American alternative rock had become overly aggressive and juvenile. Consisting of childhood friends Cinjun Tate (vocals, guitar), Cedric Lemoyne (bass), Jeffrey Cain (guitar), Shelby Tate (guitar, keyboards), and Gregory Slay (drums), Remy Zero was merely a group of schoolboys recording homemade tapes. In the mid-'90s, the band sent a demo to community radio station KCRW in Santa Monica, CA. It attracted the attention of Geffen...
