The latest Tooth and Nail hype machine is Neon Horse, another so-called mystery band where people don't know who the members of the band is. Those into Stavesacre will immediately recognize Mark Salomon as 1/2 of the vocal duo. And it isn't too hard to imagine Jason Martin of Starflyer 59 doing guitars. Beyond that things are a bit murkier, member wise.

The music is fairly rock and roll, throwing back to the hey-dey of rock music. However, rather than being a simple clone (unlike a fair number of the current throwbacks), Neon Horse is captivating for the simple reason that the choruses are huge. Salomon's voice is gripping in this role and context.

The album feels a bit short and could have stretched some of the songs out farther, in my opinion. However, it is definitely worthwhile picking up for the music, and not simply as an acknowledgment of the hype.

What does Neon Horse remind me of? Well, put Showbread, Starflyer 59, Stavesacre, Modest Mouse, and The B-52s in a blender, and you'll have a taste...

When I heard "Cuckoo" for the first time yesterday I was instantly hooked. The music is familiar, yet a completely new style. I went to four different stores before finally finding the album, and I've been listening to it non-stop today. Every song is decent, and most of them are amazing.

I agree that Mark Salomon (or however you spell it) and Jason Martin are probably in the band. The guitars sound very similar to the most recent Starflyer and Brothers Martin albums. But who is the third? The world may never know...

'Neon Horse' immediately hits as unusual and familiar at the same time. It's got this good ol' rock 'n' roll sound, mixed with modern day tinges and distortion and vocals. Many of the tracks ride into the same territory as Queens of the Stone Age or Eagles of Death Metal, yet still different... maybe less stoner and more trashy, if that makes sense? Mark Salomon and Jason Martin have GOT to be involved, but I can't place the higher pitched vocals. Either way, this record is a lot of fun. It kicks up a dust storm and leaves the party in shambles in no time. Each song is similar, in my mind, to the Ramones... the tracks are fairly short (only one song clocks in over the 3 minute mark) but very to the point. They get the job done and don't mess around with fluff... Very refreshing.

This is an awesome unexpected album. Maybe ahead of its time. Ok at first you may not hear the genius but if you start to disect the parts -the performances are awesome and the vocal collaboration is stellar. This album blows away all that Christian music that is so boring and sonically interbred. This band will make have faith in Christian music again. My critique of Christian music is that is so predictable and sonically synonymous. Sadly there are few independents that are pushing against the envollpe of commonality. So this album needs to be awarded for being fresh, daring, creative, and still low budget. I imagine these guys didn't make anything off this album. It was an act of love and musical creativity! Great job guys. Don't stop.

The first time I heard "Cuckoo!" and especially "Little Lamb," I never thought I'd buy this album. The vocals were different and borderline annoying, but after a few more listens the hooks pulled me in and never let go.

That is what makes this album great, super catchy songs that grab you and don't let go - that is, for a while, at least. The "replay value" of the music is not so high. I find myself skipping the songs more often these days when they pop up on a mix. But there are definitely songs worth buying on this album and I suggest it to anyone looking for something refreshing and interesting.

Granted, this album may be an acquired taste for some, but it is very well done. The vocals might put off some people too, but give 'em a chance! I was iffy at first but this band quickly rose to my top four favorites. Definitely worth it. Not to mention the talent here is impeccable. The vocals are unbelievably diverse and you just gotta love the tongue-in-cheek lyrics. Highly recommend this album.
