5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSIDER MUSIC AT IT'S BEST 1 Aug 2006
By Miranda
Format:Audio CD
This album is the best thing I've heard in so, so long it's almost depressing. Why isn't all music like this??? Tender yet violent, melodic, desperate and tremendously exciting all at once. This album articulates everything I've wanted said about the state of the world right now. It's political, but it's not preachy, or in any way contrived like so many of the half-hearted anti-Bush dire tribes we've been subjected to over the last 5 years. Finn Andrews has a voice that simply captivates you - a young man in turmoil, a young man at odds with the world, a young man you feel is only just beginning to touch on the full extent of his musical powers. It is a true album of it's time but the songs are all so great you can't help but think this is only the beginning. 'Not Yet' is a true classic. As is the title track. And Jesus For The Jugular OH MY GOD!!!! It really does put the rest of the music scene right now to shame.

ALBUM OF THE YEAR WITHOUT A DOUBT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Album 9 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this a year or so ago after being introduced to The Veils through the film 'Mr Brooks' which features 'Vicious Traditions', I immediately purchased 'Runaway Found' and was overwhelmed by the album which is still played in my car virtually every week.
I was initially doubtful about buying 'Nux Vomica' with a fear that it would dissapoint. But having found it for just 0.88 with some postage I could not wait any longer, the opening track is just so incredibly powerful and has been played numerous times already.
I don't think I have the imagination to put my feelings about this album into words, all I can say is that I really love it and I am introduced to a new feeling everytime I listen to it, which is quite a lot so far.
How a band like this can be so unknown is a mystery to me, but it seems that is the way they want it, for which I cannot blame them. Bands like Razorlight wish they could be a charasmatic as this, Finn Andrews is going to be a legend at some point, he probably already is for those who have heard or seen him live. I will still be listening to this when I'm 60 I guarentee it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius 5 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
Discovered The Veils whilst living in NZ between 2006 and 2009. This album is a masterpiece and Finn Andrews is a genius, his father must be very proud. This is an album of integrity, power, soulfulness and sheer unbridled belief in ones ability. Why The Veils are not a major band is beyond me. Who are they like...well nobody really. Listen to Jesus for the juglar, a song pomp rockers Kasabian would kill for. Any serious music fan should be on board by now. Wake up ENGLAND!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Faint Heart Never Listened To Cool Music 1 Nov 2008
By sonny
Format:Audio CD
Wow. Somewhere between the first album and Nux Vomica, there have been some serious upheavals behind the scenes. One minute they create heart-wrenching power pop, and now... they seem to have invented their own genre.

All the staples of rock music are here, acoustic and electric guitars, pianos, harmonies... but this is all so EARTHY and GUTSY. It's almost as if these songs weren't written as such, but were heard blowing through a mountain cave and somehow taped.

The music alternates between scratchy, low-slung blues similar to post jazz Tom Waits, and forlorn Nick Cave style balladry. (Under The Folding Branches almost waltzes and sways into Black Hair. ) Likewise, Finn Andrews' vocals are by turns terrifying and beautiful. He displays a Morrisey-esque croon on The House Where We All Live, then turns into Janis Joplin singing Nirvana Unplugged on Not Yet and Jesus For The Jugular. These last two climax with elemental howls. There's also room in the mix for two pristine pop singles: Advice For Young Mothers To Be, and Calliope! Both of these set up camp in your head for days after the last time you heard the song.

I'll say it again- it's like they've invented their own genre. Like Greg Dulli, Aquila, Nick Cave and a few others, The Veils have staked out their territory and they're defending it with their lives. Amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coming Along Nicely... 9 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
After a very enjoyable debut album and a subsequent rethink, Finn's already considerable talent on this second album seems to have crystalised into something quite striking and the thought of listening to this unique voice mutate and stretch further over the coming years is genuinely exciting.

For now, however, this will more than do. Compared to its predecessor, much of this record has a harder edge with a much more atmospheric sound. That's not to say that Finn's tremendous pop sensibility has gone AWOL - it's still very much in evidence. However, the music has definitely moved on. Words like "nourishing", "satisfying" and "challenging" are all apt, as is "entertaining"

What strikes me most, however, is how, listened to as a whole, the album seduces and beguiles from the get go ("Not Yet" being sublime) and, once it's gotten your attention, never releases its vice-like grip. It visits some jet black corners of the soul whilst, at judicious moments, letting enough light in to avoid the dead hand of earnestness. This record tempts, argues and cajoles- it never whines or bleats.

From an artist this young, that's a pretty neat trick. My admiration for Finn's fellow Antipodean Nick Cave is pretty much without limit. That being said, I'd take The Veil's first two album's over the Bad Seeds' opening shots, if pushed. This comparison might sound premature to some, but I cannot help feeling that this great record has delivered so generously on the promise of the band's debut that we are witnessing the early flowering of a massive and significant talent.

Given all that, I can only recommend getting up-to-speed without delay.
