I’ve got my reasons and my reasons are sound…. I’ve got my reasons for enjoying Filter’s newest album, Crazy Eyesand those reasons are nothing short of neu-industrial excellence. Crazy Eyes, released April 8th, has a futuristic, industrial sound; a very different approach than fans will have seen from the band in the past.
The newest release boasts catchy and fun tracks such as “Mother E” and “Tremors”, listeners will definitely claim these two as their favorites on the album. “Nothing In My Hands” will remind fans of Muse, in a fantastically dark, euro-pop, glamorous way. For those that seek the old Filter sound, the third track, “Pride Flag” will give them what they seek and transport them back to 1999.
Over all Crazy Eyes is a solid album; possibly the best we’ve heard from Filter. With it’s very distinct futuristic, electronic sound, it will appeal to those that are hearing Filter for the first time or fans that have followed them since the mid-1990′s. Fans can catch Filter on their tour, “Make America Hate Again” with ORGY, Vampires Everywhere, and Death Valley Heights.
