Navel's new album was my first contact with the band. I haven't heard them before and when I found "Neo Noir", I saw them tagged as grunge/alt rock. I don't know if this Swiss trio changed its musical direction in this one but this isn't grunge (at least as I know it). Of course there are grunge influences in it but this dirty,dark,greasy rock album is full of neo-psychedelia, noise rock, post-punk and heavy blues too.. It's impossible to get bored while listening to it. The Black Angels, BRMC, Seattle's scene, White Stripes, Black Keys, Therapy?, Anti-Flag, even Pink Floyd are all part of "Neo Noir". A must-check for everyone...
