Robyn Hitchcock – Eye – Cassette

Eye is the seventh studio album by British singer-songwriter Robyn Hitchcock. It was released in 1990 and showcases Hitchcock’s unique blend of psychedelic folk-rock and introspective songwriting.

Eye features Hitchcock’s distinct vocals, intricate guitar work, and imaginative lyrics. The album captures his quirky and whimsical approach to songcraft, often incorporating surreal and poetic imagery. Hitchcock’s songwriting on “Eye” delves into themes of love, loss, dreams, and the complexities of human existence.

EYE is a solo album that Robyn Hitchcock recorded and released during the years he and his band The Egyptians had a string of albums for A&M Records. It harks back to his early solo efforts, such as I OFTEN DREAM OF TRAINS, and is imbued with a personal sense of place and history.

Musically, “Eye” draws from various influences, including folk, rock, and psychedelia. The arrangements range from stripped-down acoustic tracks to more layered and textured compositions. Hitchcock’s guitar playing is notable throughout the album, showcasing his skillful fingerpicking and melodic sensibility.

The songs range from pastoral reveries to novelty-mystical hybrids. The simple instrumentation (primarily acoustic guitar and piano, overdubbed in varying combinations and quantities) is nearly orchestral in its thoughtful arrangements. A palpable loneliness runs through Hitchcock’s themes of remembering, forgetting, imagining, wanting, losing, and dreaming.

This album serves to further delineate the artist’s skills as a guitarist. The range between his complex Soft Boys electric dueting with Kimbery Rew, to these flat- and finger-picked acoustic guitar workouts is quite impressive indeed. One listen to the instrumental “Chinese Water Python” will swiftly turn the head of anyone who’s only heard Hitchcock plugged in.

For fans of Robyn Hitchcock’s distinctive musical style and lyrical storytelling, Eye offers a delightful listening experience. It represents a significant chapter in his discography and stands as a testament to his creativity and unique approach to songwriting.

With its blend of whimsical, introspective, and sometimes dark themes, Eye remains a beloved album among fans of psychedelic folk and alternative rock. It exemplifies Robyn Hitchcock’s ability to create music that is both sonically captivating and intellectually stimulating.
