Fails the test of time.
on 11 March 2005
I loved the Neph as a student. I have many happy memories of sitting in Patchouli-oil and joss-stick scented student parties loudly discussing politics and quantum physics to impress the girl sitting next to me whislt the Neph warbled miserably away in the background.
Ten years on, the music is revealed as what it is - overly pretentious student-friendly music who, stripped from their spiritual home of booze-soaked undergraduate old bedrooms, have really nothing to offer in a modern market which demands either more (in terms of thoughtful music) or less (for easily listenable pop). Not to mention that, but they do go on, you know?
If you're a 19 year old goth like I once was, you'll love the Neph. If you're not, you probably won't.
