The most obvious strength of this band are the vocals. Hummable melodies with lyrics of deep vocabulary (eg - "in such arduous pallor"), all delivered by one of the most listenable voices I've heard in awhile. I saw a quote saying NOY sounds like The Killers mixed with Green Day, and that is a pretty good comparison vocally. As for the band, they offer a welcome change in that they don't use a whole lot of distortion on their guitars. Rather, you have the lush sounds of clean electric guitars; something which I personally love. Their bass player has a very good tone as well, keeping it tight but throwing in a few showy fills here and there. Finally, the drummer is a solid player. Like his bass counterpart, he focuses mainly on keeping a backbeat, but has a few subtle drum tricks in his tool bag.
I think NOY has a really bright future. Although a collection of good songs; there aren't any obvious smash singles on this CD. Still, these guys have all the ingredients to be huge. If they can write a good radio song on their next album, I think they might take off. But... I'm biased. I love pop-rock like this.
This album brings back what it was like to be an angst-ridden, black-clad adolescent in the 80s, when everything was about pure, dramatic, John Hughes-ian romantiscm.
This album is great. Amazing, even. The guitars and drums mesh so well, and it's very clean--very little distortion, which is different from most bands today(I believe a preveious reviewer said the same thing). Everything is very catchy. Vocals, melodies, everything gets stuck in your head. The lyrics are very well-thought out and all the lyrics of each song fit very well, but they would be almost nothing without the singer who delivers the words so well. He is one of the best vocalists that I've ever heard. But enough gushing. Long review short: amazing album, go out and buy it.
