Remy Zero's sophomore album Villa Elaine owes a debt to Radiohead, but a deeper listen reveals a wider array of influences.

Author & Special Guests

For our first review of Season 4, we’re revisiting the 1998 sophomore album Villa Elaine by Remy Zero. Comparisons at the time to Radiohead were common, but time reveals other influences creeping in from track to track, making what some would call a diverse, other inconsistent, listen. Is it a worthy album, or does the variety sink Villa Elaine? Tune in to find out.
