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.

Bloody Brilliant!

Nero is a musical genius. I usually do not like a lot of singing in my electronic music but this one is the exception. This is for sure one of my favorite albums ever. My other favorite is Eric Walker's Tangier Dream. His songs Dreamscape, Dimension Walker, and 2012 are awesome. I suggest you check it out here on itunes. Both Nero and Eric Walker's cd should get top honors this year. I would also love to see Nero play these tracks live.

Welcome Nero, welcome reality!!!

I have been listening and following Nero since they realised the single Me and You, I have loved their music ever since and when I found out they were bringing out an album after high charting successes I instantly preordered it
Personal favourite on this album is doomsday
The music on the album is fantastic, the way their choreographing just gives a natural feel to the music and I can see future successes from this band
The vocalist Alana Watson has just the perfect voice and I think she should consider joining Nero permanently, she appears in about 5 tracks
There is not a song on this cd that I could criticise, I was wishing to go and see them live on tour as they are soon performing in venues across Britain , unfortunately there is non near Bolton :(, and I'm not over 18 (only 16)
I would recommend this album to any fans of dub-step / drum and bass
I hope for a future success and will always be following you
All the best, James

some songs great... others not good

songs like promises, doomsday, guilt, me & you are all amazingly great songs!! but the others are not so great....and what on earth is "crush on you" seriuosly, listen to it its just lots of high pitch noises!


Formed: 2004 in London, England

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s, '10s

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...
