4.0 out of 5 stars Believo it June 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Enon is the latest endevour of John Schmersal, once guitarist for the now defunct Brainiac, and this album doesn't fall too far from the tree. But where Brainiac melded pop, punk, and new wave, Enon strides comfortably into techno (For the Sum of it) and even some classic soul ("Rubber Car") in addition to the the new wave pop/punk axis. "Cruel," with breathy vocals and somber tone sounds like something Elysian Fields might do, and "Conjugate the Verbs" would make every critics top 10 list if Beck had done it. The worst thing about this album is that it is over so quickly - it clocks in at around 35 minutes. Hopefully Enon can keep producing records of this quality. If they do, they seem destined to have the same kind of underground influence as Brainiac and Man...Or Astroman?

5.0 out of 5 stars Enon ist rad April 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
With the turn of the decade, music fans are scrambling to find that one album that's really going to kick off a new era of music; the next "Slanted and Enchanted", "Spiderland", or "It Takes A Nation Of Millions..." if you will. While admitedly its far to early in the decade to place any album in that prestigious lineage, Enon's "Believo!" is a good pony to bet on. Truly an album that couldn't have been made 10 years ago, Enon takes the "kitchen sink" aesthetic of the Elephant Six collective, woozy, Pavement-style hooks, and gender-bending vocals a-la Beck and wrings it all through a Power Book for a decidedly futuristic sound. The result is an album that constantly threatens to collapse under the enormous weight of it's own inventiveness. Acoustic guitars strum gently behind a wash of crashing electronic waves; breaking dishes serve as drum loops; vocals are spliced to the point of total incoherence... and it all works. In the hands of a lesser band this would sound like a desperate attempt to drag their music kicking and screaming into the 21st century. Luckily, Enon has a rock-solid understanding that no matter how much technology changes the sound and flavor of music, it will never change the fact that a good melody; good song writing is what people will ultimately connect to, and "Believo!" has it in spades. I shudder to think about what Enon will do next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique July 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Believo! is the first album I listened to by Enon and it's still my favorite. Their unusual style with strange vocals, use of organs and sound effects makes for strange sounding music, but the melodies are excellent and very catchy. I listened to part of their newer CD High Society but wasn't as impressed. In it they sound more mainstream and seem to have lost some of their original style in the process. That's why I recommend this CD over High Society to anyone who is looking for great orignal tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars The start of what is next? ABSOLUTELY!! June 11, 2001
Enon is the birth of a style of music that is without predictable shape or form. Which is why some shy away from this band but it is to their own loss!! Enon brings a classy new sound to the otherwise predictable 're-done' music of the underground genus. Those who venture into 'Believo' are treated with a refreshing array of subtle sounds and textures unlike any! The end result is that Enon with open your eyes to a new style and approach to music that re-defines everything you know or you will just stay with spoon-fed mediocrity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sonic Smorgasborg December 16, 2007
By dhinged
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A near-perfect album, blending sonic guitars, accoustics, jazzy/avante garde drumming, heavy aggressive bass, and sweet singing. Sounds fresh every listen, the only thing is the songs are too short and there's not enough of them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Many good ideas, few convincing wholes May 15, 2007
By IRate
Format:Audio CD
Eclectic set of mish-mashed indie sensibilities usually do not rise above the experimental frameworks created but most stay fun in a detached sort of way. The meeting of these quirky musicians to form this little sideproject supergroup proves most of the material will be a worthy distraction, and for the most part the intersecting experimental and pop aspects merge wonderfully, there just is not a whole lot of stand out songwriting (which does maintain an impressive, if underdeveloped range). Nonetheless, Believo! presents a convincing palate of indie pop rock, indulging a tad much in it's offbeat presentation, yet remaining intelligently catchy throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Weird, yet lovable. April 27, 2000
By Pete
Format:Audio CD
When i first popped it in, i didn't know what to expect. I had heard Brainiac, and loved them but i knew nothing about skeleton key. To my surprise, this cd put a smile on my face with each song. they are all so innovative and different without being annoying. Enon somewhat remind me of a more industrialized beck, or maybe just lo-fi. The playful feel and variation in singing is very similar to Midnite Vultures. Whether or not you buy the cd, you should at least give Enon a listen.
