Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

With their debut album Overgrown Eden, Brit rockers InMe look set to steal a march on many of their American peers, just as Bush did back in the days of grunge. Striking the right pose and fuelled by the correct influences, they also have a keen ear for an infectious melody that's already seen them break into the UK singles charts. Singer-guitarist Dave McPherson, only 20, is a precocious talent, pitching his vocals between Gavin Rossdale's pained mellifluence and Kurt Cobain's cracked passion, and occasionally rising to a despondent Thom Yorke-style falsetto. Thus his voice is an eminently appropriate vehicle for his tales of communication breakdowns, plummeting confidence and spiralling overindulgence. Musically, InMe rise above their contemporaries' punky power-pop. The guitar on "Wound" chimes like early Sisters of Mercy, "Natural"'s vocals are oddly folky, while "Her Mask", with its ghostly whispers and Pink Floyd-style effects, veers towards prog. But this is not to say they don't rock. "Lava Twilight" and "Trenches" are both pop-metal epics, while the opening "UnderDose" and closing "Mosaic", both driven by churning bass, are simultaneously despairing and hugely ebullient. If there's a down point, it's McPherson's tendency to end lines with an affected death-metal grunt. That said, Overgrown Eden is the best Brit rock debut in ages. --Dominic Wills

This is without doubt the best album i have heard in a long time. Inme are exceptionally talented and their music is both aggressive and progressive at different times, and sometimes at the same time, combining both frail chilling acoustic moments (The supreme Her Mask), and they also certainly know how to rock (The brilliant "Mosaic"), Dave Mcpherson is a sublime guitarist and vocalist. People either love or hate his voice. i Personally love it and the passion and rage he gives off with his singing/screaming are both beutiful and touching at the same time. As with the rest of the music his voice goes from beutiful melody to high pitch singing to low and rough as gravel growls and screams. Joe Morgan lays down fine bass tracks on the album, his base is a lot like dave's guitar in that it utilises the effects pedals that the band are so brilliant at using the record and provides ample backing vocals as well throughout. The only thing that suffers on this album is Simon Taylor's drums. Not that he is a bad drummer because the other band members leave him very difficult songs to figure out a drum pattern to, he manages briliantly and his playing is faultless. However i fell that in the production he got the rough end of the stick. The one complaint i have with the record is that sometimes the drums are left sounding a bit flat, especialy on the more heavy of the tracks, such as Natural and Crushed Like Fruit, the symbols in particualr just seem to fade into nothing. Apart from that minor hitch though, great album, great band, they put on a quality live show as well.

I bought this album (and white butterfly) last week after hearing a few inMe songs on Kerrang, Crushed like fruit and Faster the chase. After listening to the cd I have to say it is totally amazing. The music its self is dramatic and mesmerizing, the pounding guitar riffs and thumping bass rip through your head and the lyrics are full of deep feeling and meaning.
Purchase both the inMe albums. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.
:For best results play with a good 5:1 system :)

It would be fair to say that ‘InMe’ took the UK by sheer surprise when it came to their landslide rise to fame after the incredible success of their first single ‘Underdose’, this catchy Alt. Rock song filled with elements of nu-metal and grunge fill the music TV channels and airwaves for months, soon to be joined by equally successful follow up single ‘Firefly’. Two more singles ‘Crushed Like Fruit’ & ‘Neptune’ would follow, not doing quite as well as their predecessor yet still keeping the dream alive for this teenage 3 piece from Essex.
This album’s strongest points are; of course the sheer quality of the writing, that far exceeds any expectations for a band this young and the wide ranging accessibility for listeners from all different genre fan groups and walks of life.
In a time where pain and angst are at an all time high, with bands like ‘Staind’ marketing it to death as you would a new bathroom cleaner. Taking this into account, ‘InMe’ could have died on their feet but there is something special about this album, a genuine feeling of hurt and a resounding indication that this is a band of wise young men. ‘I went to the aisle to marry your soul, to miss you that much’ & ‘Rust in my eyes from my corroded halo’ from ‘Firefly’ suggest a real dark experience, this is moving and torturous and at the same time insanely catchy.
I would say that the good tracks on this album are very good and the not so good tracks are very wearing and mediocore, yet still all in all; a creative masterpiece for such a young band.

I'm only a teenager and maybe don't have a wide range of music,but i love this album!Alot of people don't tend to agree that this is one of the best alternative British bands to come out in along time.We tend to be contented with the over whelming American bands that are taking over our airwaves.It's nice to see actual Brits on the music scene.
My personal favourite songs on the album are "Natural","Wounds","Trenches","Lava Twilight" and "Energy".David McPherson's melodolic wails and "growling" mixed with his excellent guitar riffs,Simon Taylor's amazing drums,and Joe Morgans fantastic bass,make this one of THE must hear albums of the year!It's no wonder that they are such an up and coming band.

I bought this album on the day of release in Feb 2003, I couldn't be bothered with a review before but I think it is about time. It still stands above White Butterfly in terms of musicianship, White Butterly is great but songs perhaps sound a little too layered? okay possibly only to me, but Overgrown Eden is much heavier and more agressive than White Butterfly.

There are really only 4 slightly mellow tracks but to me standout tracks are Underdose, Crushed Like Fruit, Natural, Neptune, IceWarm and Mosaic. Actually they're all great, I don't think InMe can be labelled for their music as they take in different styles. This is definately not an emo album, it can appeal to fans of rock and metal, moreso than White Butterfly which is more rock.

I'll put it simply, if you like good music you will either have already purchased this or will purchase it now. If not, stick to your S club or whatever.
