iTunes Review

Soundtracking a fictional film is easily the next best thing to recording a concept album. With 2011’s Welcome Reality British producers Joe Ray, Dan Stephens and vocalist Alana Watson did just that under the Nero moniker. The futuristic opener “2808” sets the tone for a dark post-apocalyptic realm of electro reality where rock ‘n’ roll has become extinct. It bleeds into the pulsing “Doomsday,” brilliantly infusing progressive arrangements into hard, gritty dubstep. “My Eyes” begins with minimalist Brian Eno-inspired soundscapes before transforming into a Daft Punk-esque ballad where Watson sings like a less quirky Björk. Utilizing timeless technological tones, Both “My Eyes” and the instrumental breaks on “Guilt” blend vintage sounding electronic textures with modern-day innovative production to forge something that plays like an upgraded reworking of Vangelis’ 1982 score for Blade Runner.

Customer Reviews

One of the best albums of 2011.

Firstly, @C.arbon - Why compare Pendulum and Nero? They are completely different. Nero make dubstep, electro and occasionally D&B whereas Pendulum make D&B primarily. Also, Nero don't have a 'girl singer'. They use female vocals in some songs, but so do Pendulum occasionally.

Anyway, on to the review.
Every track on the album is great. Yes, some of the songs such as In The Way and Scorpions may be slower and not as hard hitting as tracks like Guilt or Promises, but they are certainly not filler. Listen to the album all the way through.

Featuring producers Dan Stephens and Joe Ray along with vocalist Alana Watson, London's Nero were born a straight drum'n'bass act, but they steadily evolved into a more layered affair, mixing dubstep beats with classic house music melodies and vocals. Formed in 2004 and signed to the Formation Records label that same year, the group released a series of drum'n'bass 12"s that would take them up to 2008. That year, the Audio Freaks label released their "This Way" single, marking their shift toward...
