ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A healthy balance of high energy pop, hauntingly good melodies, and an infectious live show is just part of what keeps The Nines at the top of many all-time greatest pop band lists. In 1998, The Nines released their critically praised Wonderworld of Colourful which topped the University Charts in Canada. The album introduced the splendid pop song craftsmanship of singer/songwriter Steve Eggers. Being named North by North East's "Best unsigned Act" in 1998, allowed Canada's pop darlings the chance to release a second cleverly penned and supremely performed 4-song CD released on Universal. Eggers' songs have appeared on several hit Television shows, including Dawson's Creek and Party of Five. The Nines have recently released their second full length album, Properties of Sound, and immediately topped Canadian University Charts with the song, Melanie. The Nines have returned from a successful showcase in Hollywood, opening for Jason Falkner.

Steve Eggers is currently writing with a number of artists including XTC's, Andy Partridge. The Nines will be releasing their new album "calling distance stations"in spring 2006, which was mixed by Jason Falkner, Joao Carvalho and John Adams. The new album features a co-write with Andy Partridge.

saddyboy

wonderful world of their own!
this record is a godsend for power pop fans who love their rock'n'roll served w/sweet, pure melodic goodness!! in a genre know more for craft that groundbreaking experiment, the Nines seem to be able to split the difference and give you somthing vaguely familiar yet very exciting and new! highly recommended...(p.s. pick up their second record, too!!)

XTC meets Beatles Meets Ben Folds
This is one of the best albums that I have purchased in years. I saw these guys play in LA several years ago and their songs are some of the best I have heard.

Paul Morgan

Wonderful!!!!
This album is very beatlesque...more Mccartney though than Lennon, although there are some really great heavy tunes. Some of the best songs I've heard in a long long time and all on one album. I highly recommend this one as well as their follow up, Properties of Sound.
