Nevermen, the leaderless trio of Tunde Adebimpe (TV On The Radio), Adam "Doseone" Drucker (Anticon/Clouddead) and Mike Patton (Faith No More/Tomahawk), presents its 10-song self-titled debut album.
Neither side-project nor super group; it's merely meant to be — a years-in-the-making partnership in which these men shared all duties, discovering their collective sound with the sort of glee and freedom usually reserved for first-timers.
Amid this wild, weird churn of rock, pop, rap, soul, and other, it's shockingly easy to lose track of who's singing at what moment, and that's the point: to quote Tunde/Adam/Mike in song, "The frontman digests its self." Nevermen, the album, finds these three giants shredding their egos to get at the heart of why they do what they do, to explore the hopes and fears and wins and losses of anyone who carves career out of what started as dream.
