Editorial Reviews

Over the last four years Close Your Eyes have continued building a reputation for being one of the most dedicated, honest, and inspiring bands around. During this time they have sold over 35,000 albums in the U.S., performed numerous sold-out shows with some of the biggest names in the genre, and amassed a devoted and diverse fan base. Now with a revitalized ambition, Close Your Eyes raises the bar to new heights on their fervently awaited 2013 release, Line In The Sand. The band has spent the last year hard at work perfecting the prevailing Punk-influenced, Hardcore anthems on their third studio album.

As a fan of Close Your Eyes since the early days, I couldn't wait to hear the new album. The singles were awesome.

The album is strong and well put together and the musicianship is excellent. I think the new singer brings a fresh sound to the band, but not so much that it's not Close Your Eyes. There are many harmonizing melodies, strong screams, fast punk rock beats, hardcore grooves, rock beats, and even some softer songs. It will take some time for the slow songs to grow on me. The song lyrics are strong and I hear passion and heart come through which makes the music all the better. I think the CD is reminiscent of Comeback Kid, Stretch Arm Strong (Free at last album), and 7-10 Split. Overall a great album. I probably would have given it 5 stars if the slower songs weren't on there.

Anytime a band changes out a key member, a discussion arises in the music community about whether or not the band should keep their name, rebrand, or disband entirely. To be fair, each option has valid reasons. Fans of music everywhere have seen bands change lead singers to detrimental effect. In fact, though there are some cases where a band mostly lives up to their former glory (Becoming the Archetype for example) with the departure of a lead singer, and a very few rise to even great heights (Arguably Haste the Day), the vast majority of the time the spirit of the band changes so much (Audio Adrenaline and the Newsboys, for example) that fans wonder why the remaining members chose to keep waiving the same flag.

Just as every band hopes to achieve, Close Your Eyes has rightfully gained a sizable and passionate following coming off of their incredible Empty Hands and Heavy Hearts. So the news (more than once, in fact, since their last album) that the band would move forward with a new frontman was harder to swallow for some. But, let’s just clear the air right from the start. With Line in the Sand CYE proves that the spirit that made the band stand out with their fans is still sitting at the very core of this “new” experience.

Yes, Sam’s vocals are very different than Shane’s. And, yes, that does effect the sound of the album noticeably if you were unaware of the vocalist change. But, to be perfectly honest, on my first listen through it wasn’t until “Kings of John Payne” that this switch was glaringly apparent. In fact, I would wager that many casual fans won’t really immediately take much notice at all. Sure, purists and the dedicated (both the most loyal and the hardest to please for any band) will mourn Shane’s leaving and declare it detrimental to the album’s production.

A new album and a new lead singer from England! I loved the original sound of the group Close Your Eyes, just heavy and rocking enough, without being another drone sounding band. When I found out they had a new lead singer I was a bit worried about how they would sound now, but I actually love his voice! My favorite tracks are "Frame And Glass", "Kings of John Payne", but every time I hear the album I like more and more of the songs!

Line In The Sand by Close Your Eyes is a reasonable CD for the money. It has lots of good songs by Close your eyes and two of them are played on internet radio. A few of the rest of the song are seasoned dance music (danceable). It's got a few hard rock songs sounding, all in all it's a pretty reasonable CD I think.

I like the raw vocal style that follows in the vein of Rise Against. The "not normally heard" vocal bit I was referring to in the title is the British accent of their clean vocalist. Typically, I don't hear that particular accent in most bands, but with these guys it is very apparent (and that is not a bad thing). I think it definitely adds something good to their overall sound.

If I had to make a comparison, in vocal style and in sound, I would say they are like a slightly more aggressive Rise Against. The pace on their songs may be a bit slower than you would hear on something like Revolutions Per Minute, but the sound is close with a little bit of a heavier chug to some songs and a good growl every now and again. Honestly, I wish their growler would have a bigger presence.

Stand-out songs for me would be "Line in the Sand," "The End," and the chaotic, growl heavy "Skeletons;" though I will admit to "Frame and Glass" being a neat change of pace with the lead in and the Brandon Boyd of Incubus style vocals on the refrain.

If the album had been a bit more aggressive, I think it would have been a bit better to my ear. A solid release with easily discernible songs. (There is enough differentiation that it doesn't sound like a typical "safe" metalcore release)
