Eyes of Glass - East Wall (Dark Entries)

Title: Eyes of Glass
Artist: East Wall
Label: Dark Entries
Cat Number: DE144
Genre: Italo

1: Eyes of Glass (Vocal)
2: Eyes of Glass (Instrumental)

It’s hardly superpowered, having being melded from more melancholic material; but ‘Eyes of Glass’ has its italo credentials in spades, largely down to a mournful vocal somewhere on the outskirts of comprehension and one of the all time great synth lines of the age. The plodding beat, however, does just as much to distinguish it, and adds emphasis to a masterly cold wave/italo combo. An excellent record which is , hopefully, pressed accordingly. (Reviewing on mp3s here).
