Since its 1998 self-titled debut, Eve 6 has carried the burden of being slightly ahead of its peers. It boasts smart and clever lyrics, charging guitars, and astute musicianship. Perhaps this is why Eve 6 hasn't garnered the number of top singles it should have achieved by now. In sticking with its formula, Eve 6 has filled its latest album, It's All in Your Head, with catchy songs -- musically and lyrically. The first single, "Think Twice," is a musically fun romp trickling antagonistic lyrics. The best song on the album, "At Least We're Dreaming," is relentlessly hook-laden and will capture the minds of the most cynical music fans. It's All in Your Head shows more emotion than past albums, offering a variety of moods, including the Suicidal Tendencies-turned-pop angry flavor of "Still Here Waiting" along with melancholy ("Hey Montana") and sadness ("Without You Here"). However, It's All in Your Head doesn't have the punch that Eve 6's previous albums possessed. There are standout tracks but, although well done, they slip out of mind when the album ends. Nevertheless, it's a welcome offering. Once again, Eve 6 will probably find it difficult to connect with fickle music fans used to punk-pop and rap-rock. But that doesn't mean that it's an album not worth picking up.
