ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
You will hear something familiar about Noel Hogan's Mono Band, for the trademark, ringing guitars and fluid melodies bear the unmistakable imprint of his years with one of the world's most successful bands, The Cranberries.

But his new music sounds fresh and different, too, from the subtle electronic touches and inventive programming to the wide and varied range of singers who give voice to his songs on the Mono Band's debut album.

"...With any arty/experimental indulgences being reined in by Hogan's deft knack with a melody line, there's much to absorb and intrigue here as the layers of sound combine to produce resonant new music that has Mercury Music Prize written all over it. Surprising and very rewarding - side projects aren't supposed to be as good as this." -Irish Times, May 20, 2005

"...Carving out a small universe with each track, they push the boundaries of each world without overstating, without exhausting the inspiration, seeking out the life behind a single chord, a naked melody, an exposed harmony clinging to meaning. "-CD Baby, May 2005

"...The combination of sound and lyrics ensure that these songs really get under your skin, so much so that you'll find yourself putting the CD on repeat. Yes, it's that good." -RTE.ie, May 2005

An eclectic mix indeed, but it works and what's more it is fantastic. Right from the Indian mantra of a start we go on a jouney through many styles of music and by the time the journey is ended you will want to revisit it time and again.

Monoband deserve to be embraced, cherished and loved.

Spread the word, the music and enjoy this fantastic body of work time and again.

Simply stunning

My New Favorite!
I also love the Cranberries and was excited to check this project out. Love it! Reminds me of Zero 7, laid back, different sounds and vocals for each song. I've been listening to this cd over and over. Woo Hoo!

An amazing album from the guitarist of The Cranberries
After the Cranberries broke up, Noel Hogan takes a very different direction... This album contains very eclectic songs, from pop to electro, and it's a real pleasure to listen to it!

CHINASKI

Turns It On It's Head
Hogan takes the straight on guitars and vocals arrangement and turns it on its head – subtle, keenly chosen injections of electronica coupled with bold, dynamic programming. The music becomes layered and ethereal – at once vicious and delicate.

The axe man hath cometh with dreamy rythmitic soul.
Listened to the album while on a long drive.Noels choice of vocalists are top class.Lets hope there is a lot more to come from this talented musician.
Ps it shortened my journey.

Moving effortlessly from an electronic worldbeat rock mix to soft, plaintive, whipering pop songs routed in acoustic guitar to straight-up, crunchy, glorious emo, this dynamic group out of Limerick, Ireland brings an eleven-track wonder, finding something different to celebrate in each varied sonic world they inhabit. Carving out a small universe with each track, they push the boundaries of each world without overstating, without exhausting the inspiration, seeking out the life behind a single chord, a naked melody, an exposed harmony clinging to meaning.

lives up to the live downloads and more!!!!!
After finding a live show to download and falling in love with it I HAD TO HAVE the album. WOW!!!!! Noel and his guest vocalists have created a masterpeice. Complex. Melodic. Passionate. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the cover. This is a gem!!!!

Antonio Sinigaglia

A wonderful music
I was dismayed, just at its beginning, because I don't like rap music very much. Later everything changed, it is
a combination of rock and melody inherited from the Cranberries. It is
wonderful and I would advise to listen to it in a cold
winter evening, because some songs bring a certain warmth.

Wow wow wow
I searched high and low for this album after hearing tracks on XM Radio. This album rocks; I'm obsessed with it. Great music for all moods.
