Album Review

Drama Queen is a phenomenal follow-up to the far inferior Out of Your Mouth, and with it Darr has finally pieced together the many musical threads in his head into one sizzling set. The core of Neurosonic's sound is a seamlessly stitched tapestry of hard rock (in all its many forms) and gloriously sweet melodic choruses, but that's only the core. The opening stab at lip-syncing the simpering popette Jessica Simpson melds hip-hop, hardcore, and classic '80s rock with a catchy chorus. "Are Solar" splashes thundering hard rock guitars around a warm, melody laced chorus, and tosses in a nod to Eminem for good measure. "Fearless" features the lush extravaganza of every British rocker's Christmas single, then drops in a harmony-drenched new-school punk-styled chorus. "Me Myself and I" is an exquisite, pensive ballad, until it revs up into rock. "I Will Always Be Your Fool" shifts the other direction, from hard rock into a dreamy, Beatlesesque chorus, a feat that "Until I Die" repeats, only this time with stomping '80s rock.

"Frankenstein" and "Crazy Sheila" stomp straight into Slade and glam territory, while "Boneheads" incorporates a tinge of industrial dance, a splash of hip-hop, and a shout-along chorus. Hair metal comes back into fashion, lighter-in-the-air arena rock gets its due, while orchestral ballads make a comeback (wait; did they ever leave?) in Darr's oh-so-clever hands. The sound is as big and bruising as it needs to be, while the gentler, softer sounds are allowed to sweep in with all the sassiness of a rich debutante. Thematically, "So Many People" is the exception to the angsty, troubled interpersonal rule, a reflection of Darr's industrial, indie influences. Melancholy teens will cleave to the lyrics, but it's the music that will capture the respect of their elders.

Customer Reviews

wow 1st review

So basically I got interested in Neurosonic when I heard Fearless and thought it was pretty good. For the cheap people who try to listen to the 30 second clips to decide which ones are most worth it instead of getting the whole album: The first 3 or so songs & Fearless are probably the most sellable songs on the album, but in my oppinion there really isn't any filler to be avoided here. The first song on the album is an obvious attack on Ashley Simpson's incident on SNL. A good chunk of the album is driven by buzzing guitars which are really flattering to Jason's voice. The album goes from a driven start ranting about different issues with fakes trying to hit it big to the final song about looking back on a relationship with acoustic guitars and violins. DON'T BE CHEAP, BUY IT ALL. It's a good 5.

Refreshingly different!!!

I came across Neurosonic on iTunes purely by accident. I read the description and the reviews and based on these I decided to take a chance and buy the entire album. Holy S**t! $10 VERY WELL SPENT! Never heard of them before, have no idea where they came from nor know anything about them except what was posted here. These guys are refreshingly different, extremely talented and there is not one song on here that is bad. All of the songs rock melodies are fantastic. My iPod gets a workout with this one; I play it so much! Absolutely love the talent here. I highly recommend this album. Thanks to those who took the time to review this album and moved me to purchase it.

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Canadian alternative rock outfit Neurosonic is the musical brainchild of Jason Darr. He'd formerly spent time with the Calgary-based rockers Out of Your Mouth, the group scoring a hit on radio and MuchMusic with its cover of Madonna's "Music." But Darr eventually grew dissatisfied with Out of Your Mouth; he detached himself from the band to strike out on his own, taking a musical arrogance and love of electronics with him. The result was Neurosonic, a catchy mixture of industrial and hard rock with...
