Grey Eyes nods towards sophisticated '60s European and American pop constructionists (Gainsbourg, Bacharach, the other Scott Walker) and brass-tacks workmanlike hit-makers of yore (Tin Pan Alley, the Brill Building), while acknowledging transformative pop heirs from the '70s and '80s (Godley & Crème, The Smiths). Yet far from being a mash-up of influences, Grey Eyes captures the freshness that marked the dawn of popular music and periodically renews it – no matter what hurts and indignities pop songs are woven from, a transcending embrace of possibility remains a genre fundamental.
Featuring 10 of the band's most spectacular songs recorded to date, Grey Eyes – polished, crisp, sprightly, and architecturally realized – is a sublime and energetic continuation of the band’s catalogue.
