5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, this album is underrated! September 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I'll start this review by saying that I'm a big Loudness fan, I have most of their albums and I like them all, but I only got Hurricane Eyes a few days ago... Anyway, I didn't expect a great album because it got a lot of negative reviews, but damn, what a surprise, I got a great album!

Ok, yeah, its poppy, its commercial, its cheesy ... So what? Honestly, based on the negative reviews, I expected a very poppy album, but it isn't THAT poppy and a couple of the songs sound just like the songs on Thunder In The East and Lightning Strikes! Its really stupid that a lot of people don't like this album only because its poppy, its really stupid that a lot of metal fans don't like a song if its not 100% heavy... Don't get me wrong, I'm a metal fan, yeah, 90% of the bands that I listen to are metal bands, but I don't have anything against pop, in fact, I like a few pop bands (well, I guess that bands like Depeche Mode aren't exactly the definition of pop, but anyway...) and I like some poppy metal, I don't think that there's anything wrong with poppy metal, its just more happy and more catchy and since when catchy is a bad thing? Anyway, this album is really great, it has some generic parts, but overall its pretty original, all of the songs are good, it has a lot of really catchy parts, it has a lot of great riffs, it has a lot of great solos, Akira's playing is as unique as usual and Minoru's voice sounds great as usual! All in all, its almost as good as the 2 previous albums (Thunder In The East and Lightning Strikes), the sound is not that different from the sound on these 2 albums, its just more poppy and more catchy. Its nowhere as good as The Law Of Devil's Land and Disillusion, but what is?

You're not a close-minded metalhead? Then I recommend this album, its a very enjoyable album! I also highly recommend The Law Of Devil's Land, Disillusion, Thunder In The East, Lightning Strikes and Racing from the same band!

4.0 out of 5 stars very good album.. August 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Had this one on tape when it came out..great music! the tracks "this lonely heart" and "rock n' roll gypsy" are some of the best songs from the 80's I thought, but like always a great band fell in the cracks of the hair bands...

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid piece of hard rock. August 31, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I have always found Hurricane Eyes to be a pretty cool album. Loudness is a Japanese hard rock band that has put out some good material. Akira Takasaki is a very good guitar player. His guitar riffs and solos have always been very impressive and interesting. This album is somewhat more diverse than the previous disc Lightning Strikes. Unlike that album, keyboards are used on some of Hurricane Eyes' songs--they are a nice addition to Loudness' music. There are straight-ahead hard rockers, a few fast metallic ones, and a couple of power ballads. The musicianship, songwriting, and production are solid and satisfying. Hurricane Eyes consists of ten tracks. My favorite tunes are "S.D.I.," "In My Dreams," and "So Lonely." "S.D.I." is the album opener and a heavy and fast one at that. Minoru Niihara really does deliver with the vocals. He has a unique and cool voice and does a good job throughout. "So Lonely" is a nice power ballad that ends the album. Hurricane Eyes is a solid piece of hard rock. Worth a listen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat of a disappointment November 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't think this album is as bad as some people make it out to be, but it's certainly deficient in areas. The main problem is that it comes off the heels of two very successful albums in the U.S market. It's obvious that Loudness saw the changing of the landscape in regards to the success of glam rock/metal in the U.S, and they did their best to capitalize on this genre. This was a BIG mistake! The funny thing is, as you listen to the first two tracks, you wouldn't no there was anything bad on the horizon. "S.D.I." is simply the best track on this album, and that seems to be the consensus among most Loudness fans. "This Lonely Heart" has some heavy guitars, but suffers a bit because of the chorus. Now we get to the obligatory sell out song, which turned a lot of heads, that being "Rock 'N' Roll Gypsy". It's a keyboard laden song, with a lot of over production. When you have a talented guitarist like that of Akira Takasaki, one shouldn't really have to resort to this. That brings us to the worst song, which is "In My Dreams". This is a constant skip for myself, as it's just an awful ballad. The next four songs ("Take Me Home", "Strike of the Sword", "Rock This Way", & "In This World Beyond") all have some redeeming qualities, and are what you would expect to hear from Loudness. Unfortunately, the album ends on a downward spiral, with two of the worst songs in that of "Hungry Hunter" and "So Lonely". This album is about 3 1/2 stars, but Amazon STILL hasn't gotten on board with that option. If you're hearing Loudness for the first time, start with the English version of "Disillusion", "Thunder in the East", or "Lightning Strikes"...all killer albums.
