Chrystal Belle Scrodd, "Belle de Jour"

Once again I'm impressed with the packaging of this reissue. Having thecover and inside photos restored on nice paper in a booklet is farbetter than the flimsy Beastingscard and anything done in a chintzy digipack. While this is the secondChrystal Belle Scrodd record (originally released in 1986), it featuresmusic which pre-dates The Inevitable.

Matt Elliott, "Drinking Songs"

By all accounts I should be loving this album. Matt Elliott has takenmusic much farther than I could have ever imagined from listening toThird Eye Foundation back in the 1990s.

Low (Part 2)

40 Minutes, Quicktime Streaming Video Well, there's a few reasons we've got a second part to this Eye special: 1.) is that Jon's overseas right now and can't produce another episode of The Eye right now; 2.) there was a ton of footage and some of it included some really great songs; and 3.) well, Low just deserve it! So, here's another part to the Low Eye special: this one, however doesn't have multiple camera shots and has longer answers, so it might be best for the super dedicated fans who are patient and like the band an awful lot.
