Review - The Flying Eyes - The Flying Eyes

The Flying Eyes - The Flying Eyes

View The Review

7 out of 10

Ladies and gentlemen - from Los Angeles, California - the Doors! Or, fom Baltimore, Maryland - the Flying Eyes! You get the idea. Musically trippy, with a Morrison-reborn vocalist who should be congratulated for sticking with an original band and not 'going tribute' to coin it off the counterfeit-this or bootleg-that rubbish desperate nostalgics seem to crave, still. The band are favoured by a certain Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys and it shouldn't take you long to realise why; Hendrix jams with Steppenwolf on guitars through grooves that Jon Spencer wouldn't throw away. The final track is an oddity - a Dylan-esque psychedelic drawl - but the rest should float your boat and shake your tail feather.
