Cover Your Eyes| Posted April 01, 2008
Wow, so much better than their last one. Paschal's vocals have improved so much. In this CD, you can acutlly understand what he's saying, plus he just has a lot more power in his voice. Where the last CD was just... weird, this one is unique. Each song sounds different. You've got some rock, punk, and emo in there. F-Stop is a great, catchy pop/punk song, The Olive Branch is a beautiful slow song, and if you're looking for different, there's Goodbye, Miss Havisham, which really does make a lot more sense once you've read Great Expectations. So a really good job by Sullivan. They realy stepped it up. It's just too bad that they disbanded before we could see whether their next CD would be even better than this one.

I bought this album, not really knowing if I would like it. The first song I heard by them was 'F-Stop' and I kind of liked it, thinking that Sullivan was a pop band. Little did I know that I was completely wrong. I heard 'Goodbye, Miss Havisham' and I was taken aback when I heard the sound, it's more emo than anything, kind of edgy and dark. 'The Process' and 'Great For My Collection' are two great songs that have the emo sound. 'Tell Me I'm Wrong' is like 'F-Stop', the sound is very much pop and I didn't like it very much. Soft songs like 'Fire Away' really added a nice touch to the album. The thing I like about Cover Your Eyes is that no song sounds the same and I pretty much like most of the songs, which is saying a lot these days. So Sullivan pretty much has a sound for everyone.
