Like its predecessor FEELINGS, LOOK INTO THE EYEBALL folds David Byrne's various sonic preoccupations--funk, world music, string quartets, quirky pop-rock with heady lyrics--into a relatively seamless whole. "Like Humans" bears a post-modern R&B slant that recalls SPEAKING IN TONGUES-era Talking Heads. "The Revolution" is an ornate ballad centered around gentle acoustic guitar. "The Great Intoxication" is powered by the Brazilian percussion of Byrne cohort Vinicius Cantuaria. The strings-and-woodwind arrangement of "The Accident" adds a contemporary-classical edge. But from the breakbeats of "The Moment of Conception" to the Beatlesque guitar chords of "Everyone's in Love with You," Byrne manages to synthesize all the disparate stylistic elements in his formidable palette into a single, focused vision. Lesser men would drop the contextual ball on such an eclectic undertaking, but a veteran conceptualist like Byrne makes it seem easy.
Entertainment Weekly (5/11/01, p.80) - "...[Byrne's] Great Solo Album, folding his obsessions with Afro-Cuban rhythms, Brazilian art song, American soul-funk, and workaday surrealism into perhaps his sweetest melodies ever..." - Rating: A-
Q (6/01, p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...There's much to enjoy here - milkman-friendly melodies and all."
CMJ (5/14/01, p.12) - "...His best album since REI MOMO..."
Mojo (Publisher) (5/01, pp.108-9) - "...Rarely has he sounded so vital...this is stirring stuff....the album's textures are delicious..."
