ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1)BABY BE GOOD - Several minutes of Beach Boy infused heaven. Think "God Only Knows" sideways with Golden harmonies galore. The great Laura Nyros influence is also apparent.

2)ROUNDABOUT - A perfect Wislon/Bacharach combination. Jazzy and cool!

3)JUST FRIENDS - Verrrry "Something Anything" Todd Rundgren. A favorite album always.Carol King Too!

4)TIME - Solo John Lennonish with dreamy Lindsey Buckingham & REM like guitar all over the place.

5)TURN U AROUND - From the Byrds, The Band, Neil Young, Buffalo Springfield part of my brain. More soaring harmonies.

6)Big Change - Funky Motownish Steely Dan sounding with a touch of Beatles and a lot of Carol King.

7)Be Here Now - Totally Laura Nyro. A bouncy shuffle of a song about the cosmic wonders of meditation.

8)Slow Groove Cats - Something a little different with a hip hop beat.

9)COOL ONES - If you want to know what the Latin Beach Boys would sound like check out this one.

10)Together Now - Lindsey Buckingham fused with Bossa Nova type pop.Sounds like the Brazilian Cyrkle.

11)TOO ALIKE - If the Beatles were children of Carlos Antonio Jobim they might have recorded this jazzy folk rocking Bossa Nova pop.Also evokes Carol King.

12)HUMAN RACE - Evokes another fave, The Lovin Spoonful
with more Laura Nyro and Beatles influences.

Shindig Magazine Jon 'Mojo' Mills

Jangling guitars and great harmonies, it’s sublime. Real good.
Like The Wondermints NEO’s youthful Carl Wilson/Gerry Love vocals and fine scope in sunshine pop and breezy early ‘70s FM radio soundalikes offer the listener an array of timeless pop sensibilities, wonderfully played and sung. The sometimes-sterile-synth production may distract from being able to become fully immersed in the ornate pseudo-orchestrations, but when left to the basic necessities of jangling guitars and great harmonies, it’s sublime. Real good.

Ear Candy

Neo weaves a timeless string of perfect pop songs that is guaranteed to satiate
I don't know how many members there are in NEO or what their background is, but where in the hell have they been hiding? In the same league as Jellyfish and the Wondermints, NEO weaves a timeless string of perfect pop songs that is guaranteed to satiate the most hardened pop junky. Although you can detect influences of Revolver-era Beatles, Brian Wilson and even Burt Bacharach - NEO doesn't wear their influences on their paisley-colored sleeves. Its rare for a band to capture a mood or a feel of a time in music without you being able to say, "that sounds like…" NEO are original in that they reinvent classic pop to make it sound fresh.
This CD gets the reward for the years most repeatable-play CD in my player. Hell, I even wore out one CD player recently and I'm pretty sure that this CD contributed!
