iTunes Review

Membership changes can either destroy or revitalize a band. In the case of Close Your Eyes, the latter seems to be the case. The Texas-based Christian quintet’s third album, Line in the Sand, is impressive from start to finish, matching an aggressive yet melodic sound to spiritually provocative lyrics. Newly recruited lead singer Sam Ryder Robinson (ex–Blessed by a Broken Heart) brings a dash of British punk energy to the proceedings, while guitarists Brett Callaway and Andrew Rodriguez maintain a sense of continuity with the band’s American hardcore origins. The disparate strands in CYE’s music are lashed together with boisterous playing and a consistent message. Whether they erupt into throat-searing hardcore (“Sleeping Giant,” “Skeletons”), veer toward lean, urgent punk sounds (“Days of Youth,” “Kings of John Payne”), or ascend into arena rock balladry (“Frame and Glass,” “Trends and Phases”), the band comes across as tight, earnest, and fully engaged. The lyrics go beyond familiar Christianese sloganeering to condemn sins of human pride (“Glory”) and blind hatred (“Burdened by Hope”).

Customer Reviews

Don’t write this off

As much as we all love and miss Shane, Sam is a fantastic singer and fills the shoes pretty well. This album, like many, does have some lulls but for the most part this album is the CYE we have all come to love. So, just because Shane is no longer in the band give this a listen before you judge.

A new, refreshing chapter for CYE.

Same great sound. Same powerful, honest message of hope . . . with a spot of tea, of course. Don't think. Just download now.

Still solid

Not the same... Miss shane's voice but good album definitely worth pickin up
