Like many teenage rockers of the late '90s, Eve 6 gets by on brash attitude as much as musical skills. That's not to say that the Los Angeles trio isn't talented or ambitious; far from it, as a matter of fact. The group's sound is based in nervy punk-pop, but it has strong '70s hard rock underpinnings, and the harmony vocals of Jon Siebels and Max Collins exhibit a good pop sense. Often, the trio can pull it all together and come up with infectious pop gems. Almost as often, they get close to their goal, but fail to find the right hook to push them over the edge; they're not the accomplished pop songwriters that, say, Ash were at a similar age. Still, the songs that work are pretty impressive, and Eve 6 shows enormous potential for a debut, especially when the trio's age is factored into account.

Eve 6 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.
this album is the best i've heard. the great thing is there aren't that many cuse words so you can play it just about anywhere youwant and the price is great. the songs realat to real life. the lyrics are easy to understand and the songs vary in tempo so if you feel sad you can pick a slow song and if you are excited you can pick a fast song.
Their self titled debut is Eve 6's best. This CD rocks clear through...the lyrics and music are full of hooks that fit together very well. If you like modern or alternative rock, buy this album!
I can see where some people might like this cd but I really hate it. It has some catchy songs like inside out but they are really nothing more than a power pop trio. The only thing that I can really give them any points for is that they play their own instruments which is something that is missing from most popular music.
I bought this CD right after it was released and I think it rocks because it is a whole new innovative style- kinda like green day with a little silverchair and googoo dolls thrown in. some of the lyrics blow and could use work but overall it's a great new alternative band on the scene
