The said album reached platinum sales, generated a buzz in the industry and helped usher in a new era in the Philippine recording industry that is now known as the early 90's band explosion. The second album "Tuloy Pa Rin" came out in 1990 and created more hit singles for the band. It similarly reached platinum status and cemented several tracks as classic "OPM" songs to this day. The band, however, reached a plateau with the relatively poor sales of the third album- "Truth and Consequence" in 1992. Various founding members made their exit in 1991 and 1992.
Josel Jimenez was the first one to call it quits in '91 and returned to his hometown of Davao City. Jack Rufo, a young guitar virtuoso, replaced him quickly. Marvin Querido similarly decided to quit in 1992 and pursued seriously a career as a session keyboard musician and music arranger. With the varying interests of the members and a dip in public support for the band, the remaining members agreed to retire the band in 1994. Encouraged by the continuing interest of its fans, the band decided to do a "re-recording" of the old hits of the past albums and compile the latter in a greatest hits edition in 1999.New songs were especially produced, one of which "Kasalanan Ko Ba" was a certified radio hit single.
The album entitled "Emerge: The Best of Neocolours" as of this time has reached double platinum sales. Neocolours songs has been repeatedly covered by various artists through the years which undoubtedly contributed to the band's status as a relevant 80's pop act. Their songs were used in various commercials, movie and television show themes. Read more on Last.fm.
