The Verve Pipe - Villains mp3 album

The Verve Pipe is the self-titled album by Michigan rock band the Verve Pipe, released on July 27, 1999. The band's second release for RCA Records, the album followed the platinum-selling Villains and its mammoth single, "The Freshmen". The band worked with Soundgarden producer Michael Beinhorn and created a generally dark, sonically textured grunge-pop album. The lead single "Hero" received sporadic airplay on alternative rock radio and its video was in rotation on MTV2 in late summer 1999.

The Verve Pipe made their major-label debut under the direction of producer Jerry Harrison with Villains, recasting themselves in the inauspicious mold of a post-grunge act. On an initial listen, the album does little to distinguish itself from the masses, though patient revisiting reveals a band of more depth, with Brian Vander Ark's songwriting improving vastly over previous albums and more subtle aspects, like the tasteful organic keyboard arrangements, actually adding texture and dimension to the sound.

I turned the volume up this morning Till there was ringing in my ears I haven't felt this good in years. Another villain on the cover Of every major magazine The victim somewhere in between. See how they twist and shout. To pick it up I'm bending over Out of the corner of my eye I see a pair of blazing thighs. See how they twist and shout See how they twist and shout.

Villains is the first major label release by The Verve Pipe. It was released in March 1996. The band received its first hit in "Photograph", which peaked in the top 10 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks. A year after the release of the album, a reformatted version of "The Freshmen" peaked at number 1 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. The single was also the band's sole appearance on the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at number 5. The success of the song helped this album go platinum. To date, it is The Verve Pipe's best selling album.

The Verve Pipe is an American rock band now based out of West Michigan Contents. Their first major label release was 1996's Villains, which was a minor hit and launched two respectably selling singles, first "Photograph", then the No. 5 Billboard Hot 100 hit "The Freshmen", which was their one and only pop hit. They came back with a new album, The Verve Pipe, in 1999. The album, however, failed to contain the commercial appeal of its predecessor
