These Eyes Before is a collection of classic covers reimagined by Collide. If you re already familiar with Collide, you surely know that the duo s brave, forward-looking electronic sound is deeply grounded in a fusion of diverse influences. Over the years, singer kaRIN and producer Statik have proven themselves to be gifted interpreters as well as courageous innovators. But nothing in the group's history will sufficiently prepare you for These Eyes Before: a set of ten mainstream classics, each one completely reimagined.
Long-time followers of the Collide story will find that These Eyes Before preserves everything they ve always loved about the duo s approach. kaRIN remains a sophisticated and emotionally forthright singer; her interpretations open up new dimensions of meaning in songs you ll swear you already understood exhaustively. Statik's soundscapes are as lush and hypnotic as ever his synthesizer sounds and enveloping, his drum programming is adventurous, and the guitar work is alternately seductive and saw-toothed.
Collide has already taken its place as one of the worlds foremost and best-loved electro-alternative bands, and introduced the delights of darkwave to countless listeners; These Eyes Before further demonstrates that there s no limitation on the expressiveness of their sound.

I never heard of Collide until I received a friend request on Myspace from them. I didn't immediately download them like I usually do with my fave artists. Read morePublished on December 2, 2010 by Karen Elizabeth Waters
This album is outstanding. There is not one weak track. And to think I only discovered this band because I watched "Resident Evil: Extinction" all the way thru the end... Read morePublished on March 28, 2010 by BDJones

First of all, I should say that I have not been a huge Collide fan. So, on a whim I bought this CD. Read morePublished on January 26, 2010 by Sam Beeson
