Product Description


Villa Elaine is the second album from Birmingham, Alabama five-piece Remy Zero. The band holed themselves up in the crumbling and romantic apartment building in Los Angeles that gave the album its title and inspiration, and wrote a breathtakingly good collection of songs that are at once strong and wistful. Although sometimes compared to Oxford misery-rock benchmarks Radiohead (as well as U2 and even Echo and The Bunnymen) Remy Zero's sound is thoroughly American, unashamedly grandiose yet always sincere, Cinjun Tate's vocals clear and powerful without being showy. The songs bring to mind REM's finer moments, particularly the dreamy "Whither Vulcan", whilst elsewhere "Life In Rain" and "Gramarye" demonstrate the dark and theatrical tinges of Smashing Pumpkins and Stone Temple Pilots. Worthy it may be, but it is also very beautiful. --Sarah Brinig

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolutely Perfect Album 13 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
'Villa Elaine' contains a beauty that very few albums manage to attain. The fragile insightful lyrics manage to float upon melodies and harmonies that leave the listener in a state of complete captivation. Unlike many rock-esque albums, every song on 'Villa Elaine' is perfect and each is different to the last. From the sweeping grandeur of 'Hermes Bird' and 'Hollow', to the beautifully fragile 'Life in Rain' and 'Whither Vulcan', Remy Zero combine influences ranging from David Bowie to U2 to The Smashing Pumpkins. From this melting pot emerges an orininal untarnished sound that proves that rock music can be big without being irrelevant. 'Fair' is easily the best song I have heard in a long time and matches Radiohead's 'fake plastic trees' for its anthemic build up and euphoric conclusion. 'Villa Elaine' is quite possibly the best album to come from America in the last 6 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wowsers! 6 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album combines lyrics which can be quite sad with powerful vocals and tunes, but it can be listened to in any mood because of the sheer quality in it. I can't liken it to anything - it is beautiful, powerful and truly unique.
