Review – The Heavy Eyes – The Heavy Eyes

I woke up this morning to find out that The Heavy Eyes have just released their first full length. Is this what a wake n bake is? If so, I think I need some every day. After a 4 track demo (that sounded like more than a demo) and a sampler released last month, The self titled release is finally here.

If you’ve heard their previous material then you know what to expect. Well the self titled is all that and a lot more. Besides the obvious attention to detail, a full mixing and mastering session to get the songs together, the full length comes complete with great song writing, instrument playing, a ton of riffs and all round and a great sound. There’s a lot of psychedelic blues and 70’s inspired music throughout to keep your interest perked from start to finish.It’s really hard to pick a winning song here, they’re all great. If any of these songs were meant to be filler then I think I’d be shocked. Not a clinker in the bunch. For a comparisons sake, take the newest Radio Moscow album (which I loved btw), take out some of the effects, lower the pitch of the vocals and The Heavy Eyes is what you get.

This album is a heavyweight. Wimps need not apply. It’s good, it’s real fucking good. The Heavy Eyes self titled rocks harder than a virgin at a porn convention. Don’t believe me, listen for yourself below. The download is $5 but it’s worth at least $50. It’s 40 minutes of your time well spent. Trust me!
