Album Review

With no real songs to speak of, Eyeless in Gaza's debut was inundated with an erratic pop sensibility and a frustrating non-style-over-substance sense of work ethic. Only the occasional success hinted of things to come. The one-two punch of "Speech Rapid Fire" and "John of Patmos" would go on to stand up well against anything the band later released, the former a mangled, melancholic take on '80s synth pop and the latter squealing off in far too many directions to suggest a well-adjusted mindset and using both pre-IDM beat mechanics and structureless Arkestra anti-music to deconstruct the ubiquitous mid-album ballad. [This was later reissued on CD in 2000 with the bonus tracks "Invisibility," "Three Kittens," "Plague of Years," "Others," "Jane Dancing," "Ever Present," and "Avenue With Trees."]

Customer Reviews

Classic angst ridden sound of the 80's

Although some of the tracks can grate, this is a classic bedsit sound of guitar, drum machine and synth with pure raw emotion thrown in. Check out 'knives replace air' as the stand out track. Six minutes of swirling synths and choppy guitars with overwrought lyrics, doesn't sound too appealing but strangely very moving. To me a very underrated band who were far better than many other bands on the cherry red label who ended up have more success.
