Eyeblinder Fan Reviews

"I'm really enjoying the album, well done."
THE Rob Reich

"The CD is very good, I enjoy listening to it. Keep on rocking!"
Paolo(TheVigil) from Italy

2013-10-24 (includes bits of KGP Conspiracy review) "Now, I get to headphone listen to 'em. My word!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These are such a treat. Such a contrast between bands. And that's what impresses me. You're so pro-talented. The KGB...well reminds of the cross between The Byrds/Roger McGuinn and Tom Petty. Ummmmm... except 'Head Lock ‘and 'What Lies Ahead'...ballbusters. And I think 'What Lies Ahead' is my fav. Warren Zevon would love the lyrics to KGB's stuff! Eyeblinder is a powder keg. I like the vocals of that Jeff Gauss guy. All of it has such twists. Just like you advertisement says, 'genre-bending’! I now finally have 'Make It Happen' and 'Myrtle' and 'California'(not on the vinyl)! 'Let It Go' is on the vinyl (not on CD). Believe me when I say that it reminds me of BOC is not an insult. The Lizardz complement them. Thank you Jeff for these two journeys! I'm proud of you and proud for you! This stuff rocks me".

"We got the music on Friday. Ken was confused
and kept reading before he saw your name. He then headed to his man cave to listen to vinyl. I got the fireplace and "the chair" and listened to the CD. WOW! Annie was here for the weekend and was in shock. She had a few listens before she left. She felt very proud and amazed by the talent of your band. Thanks so much. I will be sharing your talent with friends (well, not many) and neighbors."
Debra Wood • Hudson, WI

You guys should be very proud of the record, great stuff!
THE Dave Schrader * Appleton, WI

"Thanks so much for mailing that record! It sounds fantastic - you can really hear the quality of the mix and master. I was picking out your particular guitar in the mix. Thanks also for the autographs."

"I got my copy of Eyeblinder, and my wife and I really jammed on it yesterday! 'Newcastle' sounds like it would have fit well on BOC's Tyranny and Mutation, and we especially liked 'Rough Mama', 'Utah Moon' and the title track, and what a splendid surprise to hear a cover of the Weavils' 'Make It Happen'! My wife can be very critical, and she really liked the album. A great effort, and it was fun to be part of the process. Thanks for the band autographs, and it doesn't suck to see my name in the credits!" Part 2 "Man, that's smoother than vintage scotch! Very cool to hear that like that, Buck really can make that axe sing! Still diggin' the new tunes, my friend. Thanks for making my life a bit more enjoyable!"

"I just got home to find a copy of the CD "EYEBLINDER" in the mail today. Thanks for that. I've only made through the first three tracks so far and I have to say, I'm very impressed. Newcastle has a polished 60's groove to it and the guitar work is stellar. Utah Moon (as I told Mark in an email) sounds as good as any Eagles hit. I wish you guys the best of luck with this recording, the production values and song writing are top notch. I'll listen to the rest of the disk tonight. Very approachable stuff, I hope you get some airplay."

"Hey - I have received my copy of the new Lizardz album over in the UK. I have played it maybe half a dozen times and I am really enjoying it. Some great songs and great playing throughout. I am enjoying the variation in style and a number of songs are definitely sticking on repeat on the juke box in my head!! The opener rocks like a rocky thing and it doesn't let up from there on in. Good work guys. Really good work. If you haven't checked it out you really should. And all of this with my name on the cover along side Albert and others...It is a great album. I agree that Richie's solo is epic. He is such a great musician. Lots of BOC musical references across the album - to my ears - inevitable I guess and certainly not a criticism. I really like Mormon Girls but am also enjoying Swamp Thing, Two Bit Napoleon, BFM and, of course, Newcastle. In fact I love just about all of it."
FenderControl at J&A/BOC Forums

"Yep, that opening tune rocks like a muthah. Please tell me that's your live set opener? Take no prisoners! Tune 2 gets a nice J Geils groove going, and it all rolls on nicely from there. RE: Buck - that man has more texture than (insert superlative here) ! nice work, guys!!"

BREAKOUT MAGAZINE from Germany reviews "Eyeblinder"
Full interview coming soon!

January/February CD Review (translated from German):

"More than two decades have passed from the first steps in the late 80s, including some lineup changes until now’s release "Eyeblinder". But here we are, and The Lizardz present their debut "Eyeblinder" which is released as cd and vinyl also. Attention please: This isn’t the Southern group Lizard from Germany or the US band The Lizards. If you have a look on The Lizardz’s homepage they declare their style with many influences from The Kinks, The Who, Grateful Dead, Tom Petty or The Allman Brothers Band. This is true, and so we find on "Eyeblinder" a colorful musical journey with stops in different areas. If you listen to the album the first time this might be a little bit confusing, but the more often you listen to it, you get a great view into the Lizardz’s sound cosmos. By the way: the record was mastered at the legendary Abbey Road studios in London. There are some musical guests performing for The Lizardz: Donald "Buck Dharma" Roeser and Richie Castellano from Blue Öyster Cult, and Buck co-produced two tracks also. All in all "Eyeblinder" is a fine debut with a lot to discover." - Breakout Magazine, February 2014 issue

March/April Vinyl Review (translated from German):

"Wow, wow and again wow: an unknown band with an independent record company, but the vinyl is 180 grams. Amazing. Remember: the cd was reviewed the last issue (imports), but this high quality pressing vinyl makes it much more fun, as you you can hear now everything in the versatile Lizardz style. The groove factor is awesome, just listen to the bass. There is so much you don’t hear on the cd. Vinyl quality is perfect, no scratches between the songs and a clean middle hole. All in all the best example of how lps have to be. So I only miss one thing to be in vinyl heaven: an antistatic inner sleeve, but I don’t want to claim such a high standard because everybody who is into vinyl owns such sleeves. "Newcastle" and "Utah Moon" – such a warm sound that you have to get on analog feeling. Thanks a lot for this great musical feeling." - Breakout Magazine March 2014 issue
