Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Eyes Adrift represents the first teaming of Krist Novoselic, guitarist Curt Kirkwood, and former Sublime drummer Bud Gaugh. While Novoselic's previous project, Sweet 75, was misbegotten, the ex- Nirvana bassist's new "tragedy all-star" band draws on a rich vein of lilting psychedelic country rock that borrows heavily from the mid-period work of another of its members, the Meat Puppets' Kirkwood. Eyes Adrift's Americana resonates thanks to its solidness and maturity. --Everett True

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collaboration, I hope they keep playing together October 19, 2002
By "drumb"
Format:Audio CD
Before one can even discuss the band Eyes Adrift, their impressive personal must first be noted. Eyes Adrift is an alternative super-group that includes veteran rockers Curt Kirkwood of the Meat Puppets, Krist Noveselic of the late Nirvana and the lesser known Sweet 75, and Bud Gaugh, formerly of Sublime and currently an on-off member of the Long Beach Dub All Stars. Each of these musicians has experienced their own respective pains and problems in their previous bands, each losing one of their best friends and fellow band members to drugs or suicide. Because of this, Noveselic has joked that Eyes Adrift is a relief band to help these talented artists deal with their difficult pasts, but regardless of what Eyes Adrift is as a band, it is nice to see the stunning guitar-work of Curt Kirkwood, the long absent solid bass playing of Krist Noveselic, and the jazzy drumming of Bud Gaugh all brought together on a single CD. Although more straightforward then the Meat Puppets and less aggressive than Nirvana, there is just as much acoustic guitar as electric on this CD, Eyes Adrift manages to put together a beautiful album of country tinged bittersweet songs that craft stories of love and life all told through Kirkwood's traditional lyrical style and seemingly obscure or nonsensical references. The music here is truly sincere and the deep passionate emotions on tracks like "Untried" and "Blind Me" are only made more touching through Curt Kirkwood's very human and imperfect voice.

I NEVER splerge on a CD that I've never heard.
But I did.
Well ok I did hear "Alaska" & "Inquiring Minds".
Well as soon as I popped this cd in with my friends we drove out to the beach and played it all the way through, my friends who are die hard SLIPKNOT fans had 2 remarks:
1. This is good!
2. I want to buy this album
This cd compliments a beautiful day on the beach.
The best song is "Pasted" sung by Krist Novoselic (who does a good job) I loved it sooo much that I'm buying the single to "alaska" because it has a song called "Son of Pasted" which I believe is a different mix of my favorite song.
It's such a shame that Krist Novoselic has left the music business.
Recently I heard that Krist is pondering a solo cd, that is great news considering my favorite tracks on this cd (besides 'Alaska' & 'What I Said') are with Krist Singing.

In my opinion this is better than the Foo Fighters.
I buy a Krist Novoselic solo CD in a second.

4.0 out of 5 stars I hope this isn't a side project... October 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Much of this album sounds like a brand new Meat Puppets album with cooler bass and drums (which is good in and of itself). However, I think this band really wakes up when Krist Novoselic sings, especially on Inquiring Minds and Pasted. He doesn't have pipes, to say the least, but the words have the kind of twisted piss-and-vinegar humanity that we haven't heard much of since...ummm...Nirvana and Kurt Kirkwood responds with guitar playing that's more intense and floridly psychedelic than his usual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Geniusses against commercialism. October 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is music with a heart. It's to be defined as pop-rock but on a very indie level. I don't think they did any major give-ins, just to sell more records which is great. Ofcourse you will be attracted by this all-star-line-up but luckely this band has more to offer. The first single 'Alaska' has great hit-potential I believe, although being on a small label I doubt it will be picked by the bigtime radio-stations or tv-music-channels. My personal highlight of the cd is 'Solid' with this great hook that sticks to you for days and this deep, intense lyrics. For a debut-album I have to rate this 5 stars. I would have given 4.5 if that was possible, but the ranking-system couldn't, so since it's their debut I give them that extra half-star. Great album: must-have for indie-pop-rock-lovers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing, Complex Pop October 11, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you're expecting to hear something that sounds like any of the band members' other bands, forget it. This is altogether different than what you'd expect these guys to do, and the result is a really satisfying and eclectic assortment of complex, "grown up" pop melodies. It's hard to come up with a single classification that would apply to everything they've done here, as there are shadings of jazz, rockabilly and big guitar pop, but taken as a whole it is relentlessly interesting and holds up well under repeated listenings. I'm surprised I'm not hearing some of these songs on the radio. "Alaska" would fit in nice on any prog rock or "alternative" playlist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Meat Puppets 2000 October 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you like the Meat Puppets, you'll like this. It sounds exactly how I would expect a new Meat Puppets record to sound, with exception of "Inquiring Minds", which is obviously one of Novoselic's, and in my opinion, the only weak song on the disc. Don't get me wrong, Krist is a great musician and I'm glad he has brought his celebrity status to this band, but he's no Julio Iglesias. Thanks Krist, for not trying to create Nirvana II like the ... drummer did. Cris Kirkwood, get well soon. I miss you.
