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

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.

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.

When I first saw InMe on TV in the summer performing their second single 'Firefly' I admit that at first I wasn't completely convinced of their brilliance!
I read about them on their website and downloaded their songs, and gradually realised what a great new band they are!
I couldn't wait for the release of the album and I was not left disappointed!
The album is brilliant - with deep tunes that evidently mean something to the band at the same time as being 'catchy' and enjoyable to listen to.
Unlike some bands InMe don't just create songs that only connect with them, their songs can connect with anyone. They are well put together musically and each song sounds different – which is always good!
My favourite songs on the album have to be ‘Her Mask’, ‘Trenches’, ‘Neptune’ and ‘Mosaic’. These four songs each sound different, and I never tire of listening to them!
‘Her Mask’ has a brilliant beginning, and it grows to create a brilliant climax and ending.
I like ‘Trenches’ purely because it has the longest acoustic section at the beginning, and I feel that more songs like this could be next for InMe.
‘Neptune’ has a brilliant beginning with a chance to create that pounding drumbeat that is needed in this deep song. I love the chorus to this song, as it is something everyone can relate too.
The final song of the album ‘Mosaic’ is perhaps the best. Joe Morgan’s bass and Dave McPherson’s guitar join with Simon Taylor’s drums to create the best intro on the album – with the bass continuing clearly throughout the verse. This song is flawless in my opinion and gives a great end to a magnificent album.

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.
