Change In The Neon Light Electro, Pop Veil Veil Vanish The dark pop genre is not generally what pours out from my speakers or headphones, but since I do like alternative pop rock acts like Smashing Pumpkins and Placebo, I thought I would give Veil Veil Vanish's debut album 'Change in the Neon Light' a try, and I'm glad that I did, because this San Francisco based band delivers a great one. I'm quite sure the band must be really sick of always getting compared to The Cure, but that is absolutely the best way to describe the musical and emotional state of Veil Veil Vanish. But you also get some touches of earlier mentioned Smashing Pumpkins and Placebo. After the slower paced (and great) title track "Change in the Neon Light", we are presented with one hell of a pop hit with "Anthem for a Doomed Youth" which is simply amazing. And in this way it continues throughout all eleven tracks, with one potential alternative radio hit after the other. It smells MTV2 a long way and it?s in a good way. People that are not all about being Electroheads and especially fans of pop rock should check this out, you will not be disappointed. You will hear more from this band. 450
