Album Review

National Eye – “Roomful of Lions” – [Park The Van]

Numa   5/4/2006   A Library, CD

Feel Good Pop. Soothing, feel-good sounds here from this Philadelphia-based five piece on their second full-length release. Their sound has a wide appeal with floating lyrics and a mostly-clean guitar while maintaining variance between tracks. Sitting down and listening to this album from beginning to end never gets boring. This album, same as their first (The Meter Glows), was mastered by Thom Monahan (Pernice Brothers, Silver Jews, Devendra Banhart). Unlike their first album, this album doesn’t contain as many ‘noise? elements. The themes are setup early and held throughout making this album more cohesive. Is that the Beatles on ‘Lights?’ (Track 5) This one has high potential to be their breakout album, so keep an eye on National Eye. — Numa
