Lazy Eye

Silversun Pickups

The thing about employing the whole ‘slow build-up followed by dramatic explosion of volume and melody’ approach to a song, is that you can’t do the first bit and then forget about the latter bit, because that’s the bit we’re all waiting to hear. ‘Lazy Eye’ keeps you waiting for three long minutes before going all mental and loud and shouty, and by that time it’s very likely that you’ll have nodded off. And the loud bit isn’t much cop and only lasts about 15 seconds, and then it’s back to the rumbling. A vocal that confuses ‘not sounding very interested’ with ‘haughty disdain’ doesn’t help matters either.
