CD Reviews

OUTSTANDING pop/jazz/new wave!
Brady L. Benton | Altadena, CA USA | 09/28/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Here is an amazing album, by a the short-lived duo Eye To Eye. Deborah Berg does all the lead vocals, and they are dynamite. This album is very Steely Dan-influenced, as it was produced by SD producer Gary Katz, and gets a helping hand from Donald Fagan on a couple of tracks.Issued in the early 80's as a follow-up to their first self-titled album on Geffen, this album far exceeded their first. (Sorry, Dave...this album is better!) You CAN find the first album on CD from Japan, but don't bother. This is the only one you need.The lyrics to all of the songs are clever, and the arrangements are fun and innovative. The title track is pure whimsy and great fun to dance to. You can't get the melody out of your head! "Something Good" should have been a hit single. "TWA Sari" is pure genius, with the character of the song emmigrating from India to the US, where he keeps the blanket he was given on the flight over...his TWA "sari"!Fans of good pop-jazz should flock to this obscure album, in spite of the import's well worth it."
Get The Newly Released Combo CD - Not This One!!!
Michael Paul Sebek | Georgia, USA | 06/28/2002
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard the tracks on this CD the other day, and it is clear why this band went defunct. Their first album release--titled "Eye to Eye" - was outstanding, and its contents are fully contained on the newly released combo CD titled: "Eye to Eye/Shakespeare Stole My Baby." The only cut from this CD that even comes close to the style and quality of the initial album is "Falling For A Funny One." The rest lack the energy, originality, and overall verve of the first release--and in my view are total garbage. To those who say "You CAN find the first album on CD from Japan, but don't bother" and "This is the only one you need" I say: "Wrongo, quadraphonic breath!!!" NOTHING on this CD even touches the spirit and inventiveness of "Nice Girls," "Hunger Pains," "Physical Attraction," and the rest from "Eye to Eye." My advice is: get the newly released combo CD--which incorporates both Eye to Eye releases--not this one. Purchasing the combo is the ONLY way to get the initial album on CD, which is a bargain at twice the price."
