"A sonically diverse, inherently bizarre exploration of everything from hip hop beats to psych rhythms."
The long-gestating project from Nevermen, a supergroup comprising TV On The Radio's Tunde Adebimpe, Doseone and Faith No More's Mike Patton, is a sonically diverse, inherently bizarre exploration of everything from hip hop beats to psych rhythms and vocal ticks and tricks.
So it's everything you'd expect from a project involving Mike Patton, basically. Each member's particular style comes through in its own way, whether it's the thundering intensity of Dark Ear or the meditative clicks in Tough Towns. Nevermen is a surprisingly introspective record lyrically, but overall it's a scattered collection of songs. It's a curiosity, but by no means a classic.
