Dreaming Neon Black

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Vincent Jeffries
With their sprawling, progressive balladry mixed with speed metal turns, Nevermore seem to retreat from the consistent power metal stance of Politics of Ecstasy on 1999's Dreaming Neon Black. On this, their third full-length release for the giant indie metal label Century Media, the band slips creatively, rehashing concepts and sonics from their earlier material. The struggles could be due in part to the group's first lineup change in their six-year history as ex-Forbidden guitarist Tim Calvert joins Warrel Dane vocals, Van Williams drums, James Sheppard bass, and guitarist Jeff Loomis. Slogging through familiar-sounding numbers like "Deconstruction," "All Play Dead," ...

Slogging through familiar-sounding numbers like "Deconstruction," "All Play Dead," and three other slow-paced, vocal-driven ballads, Nevermore seem to be losing steam. The ex-Sanctuary core of Dane, Loomis, and Sheppard don't stray too far from their earlier work, as the cleanly arpeggiated melodrama takes the forefront much like 1996's In Memory. Fast numbers like "Fault of the Flesh" and "Beyond Within" have a modern thrash spark, suggesting Calvert's influence might have actually been a positive but limited one. Nevermore always produce quality work, especially with regards to their musicianship; however, Dreaming Neon Black, with its slow-paced track list and subpar melodies is not the band's best effort.

    Nevermore Lives up to Sanctuary's Brilliance

    While it took three albums, and an EP to become this great my hand goes out to Nevermore on THIS album! Not to say that the first two albums and the EP are bad. They just don't live up to Sanctaury's greatness. The straight ahead thrashing of Beyond Within, and power ballads like Dreaming Neon Black lives up to the brilliant work of Warrel and Jim's former band Sanctuary. That is NO easy task! The power and melody are there on this album. Nevermore have become even better since this album as well.
