Now, this is how you do a side one track one. “Eyes of Light” kickstarts Awesome Color’s second album with a psychedelic storm of piercing feedback, a flurry of drums, and a dark, sinister bass riff, and after taking in the first minute and a half, there’s no question what comes next. More heavy riffing. Oh, guitarist Derek Stratton, will occasionally take a break or two from slaying during the verses and strum a menacing chord or two, but as the tension continues to mount, you know another dirty, Detroit-style guitar explosion is imminent. Care to guess what track two sounds like? I think I have pretty a good idea.
