The Eyes like the Sky appreciation thread

I just relistened to that album, almost forgot it exists, man, is it great! If you’re not into storytelling albums at all, it’s just not your cup of tea, but for what it is, it’s not just an okay or good album, it’s great. Good story, the music always fitting, you can’t do it much better.
I’m sure Johnny Cash would’ve appreciated that work very much.

What I only recently realised about it is how Surf-Rock it still sounds under the narration and the Western pastiche.
Makes sense as that sound is still all they had really done at that stage, but its surprising and really cool how the two aesthetics match each other. Probably because they’re both very US West-coast things.

Was awesome to see those tunes at Hollywood Bowl.
