Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Debut album by UK dubstep act. Mercury. 2011.

Review

"Welcome Reality" will inevitably soundtrack thousands of summer and fall blowouts....Nero understand how to make things burn. -- Los Angeles Times

Glorious, splinter-thin moments when a sound is both free to do whatever it wants and still functioning as a new power source... -- The New Yorker

Nero's Joe Ray and Dan Stephens ache to bestow post-dubstep with its can-you-believe-this-sh*t? flash of stadium-size euphoria, enhancing (or defiling, depending on your perspective) the genre's bass-heavy payload with trancey synths and wailing vocals." -- SPIN Magazine

Nero has been releasing hit after hit for the past few months, and it's made a lot of fans wonder when they would actually release their own full-length album. Well, the album has finally been released, and there is no disappointment whilst listening to it. It opens beautifully with the track 2808, and through the course of listening, you will hear their hits "Guilt," "Innocence," and "Promises." There is also a remixed cover of the track "Stress" by French Electro duo Justice titled "Angst," and it is a wonderful musical piece to listen to. This album is just absolutely killer, and I would say that it is, without a doubt, the best dubstep/drum and bass album to drop this year. It's not just filled with gratuitous amounts of deep, rolling bass like many other producers in the genre. This is a masterpiece, and I believe that anyone who likes electronic music will absolutely love this album. It is most definitely a "must-hear" album of 2011.

The music arcs from atmospheric staging to dramatic build so well and, of course, delivers the massive drop that--by the time it comes--you are about ready to explode for. Takes me back to some really good memories, yet has a very modern sound. For me, it was a very lucky find!

Less straight "dubstep" and more electronica along the lines of some of Ferry Corsten's work. Doomsday is the recent single getting the word about Nero further out, but it's only an opener for an overall fantastic album. Definitely pick this one up if you're fan of the genre.

I bought this because there were a few songs I had heard on Pandora and it was just cheaper to buy a used CD than the digital format. (I'm old and still cling to CDs with cover art.) I wasn't expecting this to be a concept album, I just knew that I liked what little I had heard. Then I put the album in and pressed (or clicked, rather) play. I was blown away. I couldn't remember the last time I put a disc in and just listened to the whole thing. In a world of Pandoro, Genius mixes and $0.99 singles, when was the last time YOU listened to an entire album made in the last decade?

The album has touches of early concept albums, shadows of Pink Floyd, Emerson Lake & Palmer with a dash of 80's electronica. There are samples of 80's songs and they even drafted Daryl Hall for vocals on one track. I'm also a moderate Sci-Fi geek so the faux soundtrack cover was an added bonus. I wouldn't call this a tightly bound concept album like Rush's 2112, but it flows seamlessly from beginning to end.

Do yourself a favor and get the whole album.

By far one of the best albums as far as electronic music goes. I bought this cd for my car because its a good one to drive to. I really am excited for the next album to come out soon. Nero has a great sound. I simply cannot get enough.

Growing up in the late 80s and early 90s, I was a fan of electronic music. I sort of fell out of in the early 2000s, but just recently I've stumbled across dubstep.

While surfing on Amazon last night, I found this album. Based on the preview clips, I immediately ordered the CD. I've listened to some of the tracks on YouTube in full, and man -- powerful stuff. Good rhythm, some nice hard beats. It's a sound that up until about three months ago, I was mostly unfamiliar with. In a way it takes me back to my childhood, but it's just different enough to be genuinely intriguing.

What I like about the tracks I've heard thus far is Nero's ability to balance smooth melody with throbbing rhythm. My major criticism of dubstep has been the way some artists rely almost entirely on the rhythm, to the point it begins to feel like discordant noise. Nero does not appear to fall into that trap.

I can't wait to get the disc and hear all of the tracks. For anyone new to dubstep (or electronica in general), I suggest this as a good starting point.

It has been awhile since I have found a music album that I can listen to without skipping track. I love all the songs. I was first introduced to Nero while I was watching a trailer for Borderlands 2. I wanted to know what the song was, looked it up, and put the band on my Slacker radio. "Doomsday" is my favorite track. This is good dubstep not just plain old 'wub wub'. I enjoy the female vocals that sound almost like they are from the 80s at times. Buy this album because it is good stuff.
