Biography

Eve 6 weren’t even legal drinking age when they were presented with their first platinum record. Thus, life came hard and fast at the members of SoCal pop-punk trio, whose meteoric success in the late ‘90s and early millennium ingrained their anthemic radio hits into the fabric of the lives of a whole generation. Then, it all sort of ended…until now.

Editorial Reviews

2012 album from the veteran Alt-Rock band. Joining forces once more with legendary producer Don Gilmore, Speak In Code puts a new contemporary spin on the band's trademark savvy songwriting. A warm "welcome home" for longtime fans of the band and an impressive introduction for soon-to-be-followers, the 12 infectious tracks on Speak in Code from their strongest release to date. The band's previous three albums spawned a number of top ten singles, including #1 smash hit "Inside Out", "Think Twice", "Promise", "Leech", and the radio/MTV mega-anthem "Here's to the Night", which continues to serve as the theme for many high school graduations and proms to this day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Speak In Code April 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD
So look, it's fairly common knowledge that when a band breaks up and gets back together it never really leads to good new music. Sure, sometimes something decent might come about from the reunion, but often times it's mediocre at best and unlistenable at worst.
That's why I am pleasantly surprised that the forth Eve 6 record, "Speak In Code", their first since breaking up in 2004 and getting back together in 2007, is not only a strong record but possibly the groups best, most consistent record yet.
All the things that made Eve 6 popular in the late '90's is still here: the songs are still driving and infectious, well written pop songs with a slight punk influence. The group has added some light programming and keyboards to the songs to give them a more contemporary feel, but these elements never overtake the song but rather enhance them.
With the exception of lead single "Victoria", which is pretty terrible and seems to be picked as the records lead single for no other reason than it is the second track on the record (each lead single from a Eve 6 record is the second track on the album. Why? Who knows), and "BFGF", everything here is listenable and enjoyable, with tight songwriting and excellent production. What strikes the strongest here is how consistent the record is. Even with these two songs the record never really lets up or slows down or gets drowned by filler.
The band sound better than they ever have (lead singer/ bassist Max Collins has some seriously excellent bass parts here) and sound to be really enjoying their new time together. The lyrics are still clever but not as over the top as previously, and the harmonies always come in at just the right time to enhance the song.
I really do not have anything bad to say about this record. It is as enjoyable 45 minutes as you are likely to find this year in a pop-rock record. It makes me glad to have Eve 6 back and really excited to see what this second phase of their career takes them.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Rather Stilted Effort January 18, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Eve 6 has been one of my favorite bands since the day I heard of them. Their previous album, "It's All In Your Head", certainly wasn't my favorite, but there were several solid songs on it, particularly Think Twice', 'Good Lives' & 'Arch Drive Goodbye'.

So now, after breaking up & reforming, we have "Speak in Code." This has a few good songs, but overall I think I'm being generous with three stars. *sniffle*

Those that I really enjoyed were 'Situation Infatuation' - despite it's annoying intro, it has a bit more of the lyrical flow found from "Horrorscope" & earlier albums. 'Pick Up The Pieces' is a mature piece, with softer tones and serious subjects. 'Lost & Found' was a bit of a disjointed affair, but I really loved Collins's voice & the chorus was great. However, was I the only one who expected Roger Daltry to start singing? 'Baba O' Riley', anyone?

There are a few other songs I enjoyed, but nothing that would have me clicking repeat. Aside from the three mentioned, I felt the writing, & by extension Collins's singing, was, as the title says, stilted. The wonderful lyrics loaded with double entendres found in earlier works seems to be completely missing, despite a few feeble attempts ('Lion's Den', for example). It's almost as though there are literally lyrics -missing-, & Collins is drawing out the words that are there to fill the space...I really cannot explain it any better than that. It's so unfortunate, because the lyrics were always the best part of Eve 6, I thought.

The music, too, seems to vary between some kind of 80's synth rock and the success achieved by 'Here's To The Night', which I personally wasn't a fan of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to have them back! April 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Speak in Code has got to be my favorite Eve 6 album of all time, coming in slightly ahead of Horrorscope [Explicit]. I remember listening to Eve 6 in high school, and one of my favorite things to do was turn up the car stereo, roll down the windows and blast the sound. This album takes me right back to those days--and the music is still rockin. "Moon" is probably my favorite track--soft at first, and then builds up into a sonic wall of sound. I had a hard time with "Victoria" at first and thought it was fairly weak, but after a few listens, the song really kicks some butt. I also like "Pick up the Pieces" and "Lions Den," but to be completely honest, every track is great. Like Eve 6's previous efforts--there isn't a single track to skip.

If I had a critique for the album, it would be that there sound is basically the same (and I'm not really complaining on that point), but there is a lack of progression with the band, which you would expect, given the time that has lapsed between albums. If anything, the lyrics are more mature than their previous efforts, and I guess that counts for some progression.

All in all, this album is fantastic. If you like Eve 6 or have ever liked Eve 6, you'll get a kick out of "Speak in Code."

2.0 out of 5 stars De-evolution of Eve 6 May 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Speak in Code is a very disappointing release for me. On one hand, it's nice to see Max and Co. back from hiatus. However, I have to say I was overall disappointed in this particular album. It is most comparable to Horrorscope in sound, which I thoroughly enjoyed, however, I was hoping this record would have more of the edgier/rock Eve 6 sound found on their self-titled debut and some of the more experimental rock of It's All in Your Head. The Its All in Your Head album was a moment of evolution for Eve 6 and I was hoping during their time away, they had continued to do progress in their sound and creativity. Instead, what we find in Speak in Code is bland, generic, and streamlined pop/rock. I find the production a little too glossy, riddled with sequencing, whereas their gritty guitar work on previous albums is what pleased me the most in regards to their arrangements. Not to mention the lack of that trademark Eve 6 melancholy sound many tracks tended to convey in the past (Think Twice, Showerhead, Jesus Nitelite) My biggest issue with the record are the lyrics. Max was always quite the wordsmith when it came to his lyrics, often inserting delicious homophones that utterly delighted me in every way possible. This record's lyrics seem less witty and underlining, and more straightforward and often muddled. Where are those classic vocal hooks that burrow themselves in your brain until you're singing them all day at work ("Think twice before you touch my girl..."? Even Horrorscope, which had a very cohesive sound, had a ton stellar vocal/lyric work full of irony and clever wit. I know there seem to be a lot of negative points in this review but for those of us who loved their debut and It's All in Your Head, this album falls short for me in comparison. Read more ›

It's a pretty decent album, but the band just doesn't have the same energy and "oomph" they used to. I still like the beat in most of the songs, though.

Certainly an album that has some jams that sound similar to previous albums and some new material that has shown maturity from their last release in 2003.
