The Golden Hum

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bradley Torreano
Kicking things off with the building title track, Remy Zero makes quite the first impression on The Golden Hum. The momentum keeps up through "Glorious #1," the fast and furious second track, then slows down into a catchy U2-style rocker, "Out/In." That is probably the best point of reference for this band, as many of their songs are similar to Achtung Baby-era U2. It is that brand of moody pop
ock that carries the fivesome through the album, but it is also what keeps the album from truly being spectacular. The resemblance to the Irish foursome is amazing; the ghost of Bono haunts these tracks like a specter, always reminding you that...

The resemblance to the Irish foursome is amazing; the ghost of Bono haunts these tracks like a specter, always reminding you that what you are listening to is pretty good, but not the real thing. To be fair to the band, the music is nothing to be ashamed of; it is all performed very well and it is even catchy. But there is nothing here that has not been done before, and as competent as they might be, that still does not make the album any more listenable. Fans of the band will probably enjoy this very much, but casual listeners may have a hard time looking past the averageness of the whole affair.

    "The Golden Hum" is a Master Work

    Remy Zero is one of those bands that have made a name for them selves while not going into the mainstream. Over the past three years ingeneral they have been picking up an undeniable fan base and with the release of "The Golden Hum" they have formed an acult following. None of this is without proper due. Remy Zero is one of the few bands today where you can find members that understand the theory of music. Combine that with exciting and meaningfull lyrics and you have one of the most promising bands of today. In a stage in music where catchy is all that producers and music listeners alike want, this is that band that many including myself have been waiting for.

    Seventy-year-old Grandma Recommends:

    Good music comes along at odd times in one's life: Rachmaninoff and Bunk Johnson in high school, Pete Seeger always, Joan Baez, the Beatles, Elvis, Willie Nelson, etc. Cinjun Tate, his brother and friends worship music and it shows. I tracked them down from the theme to "Smallville," and have played their album over and over again. Their music is haunting and beautiful. Thank you, guys!

    A great album by an exceptional band.

    Remy Zero are one of the few truly underrated alternative rock bands in America today. Their latest album, "The Golden Hum" is solid proof of this. The band have produced a compilation of 11 truly beautiful and unique songs - melodic, smooth and gentle with introspective and occasionally dark lyrics. Cinjun Tate's passionate, moving vocals are truly exceptional. Check out "Perfect Memory" "Save Me" "Belong" and "Impossibility." Anybody who apprieciates true, consistent quality rock should definately give Remy Zero a try.

    Best unknown band

    This band is so inspiring and really goes to the core of real rock. They might resemble bands such as radiohead and U2, but after listening to their two other albums, you really get the feel of raw talent that I never find in today's music celebs. If you look to get away from the sellouts and eminems in the world buy this cd because every track rocks its heart out!

    The best current rock band!

    This is the best example of well-written modern pop/rock I have ever heard. From the moment I slipped this disc into my CD player, I could tell that I had found something special. The title (The Golden Hum) perfectly sums up the feeling I came away with. This band is from Birmingham, AL, and it¿s quite refreshing to find a band with such well-conceived rock music, coming from the south. This album, produced by Jack Joseph Puig, is like the best of Smashing Pumpkins, Pink Floyd, Queen, and U2 all wrapped into one very original package. I have listened to this disc front to back hundreds of times and I never get tired of it!

    Thompson Entertainment Ratings: S A V E M E

    T.E.R.: SAVE ME, the hit song (theme song on the series, *SMALLVILLE), is an exceptionally fantastic. The certain song gets a full A+.

    Somebody Save Me. This did it.

    A perfect blend of emotion yet still kick-ahem (bn wouldnt let me say). With as many great songs Remy Zero has, its a wonder why they aren't #1 yet. This should be played a lot more often. When you buy this cd you're ''I bet this is okay?'' If I was standing next to you, I'd say '' OKAY!!!!!!!!! THIS CD IS BETTER THAN ANYTHING THAT IS ON THIS EARTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Buy it. Love it. Dissect it until you understand evry single word.

    Humming

    <br> <p> Remy Zero have crafted the best release so far this year. Topping their friends Travis and fans Radiohead. ''The Golden Hum'' is a difficult album to place. There are wide range of sounds reminiscent of U2, ''bends'' era Radiohead, Travis... Remy Zero have their own unique sound. <br> Unmistakable in its texture. Songs like ''Glorious#1,'' ''Smile,'' and ''SaveMe'' are filled with emotion and tie together beautifully. Buy this and you will not be disappointed.
