Strangely absent from most accounts of of America's contribution to avant psychedelia (50 Foot Hose, United States Of America, Silver Apples, Friendsound, et.al.), the work of The Mesmerizing Eye might just trump them all, insofar as all of the aforementioned will periodically come up for air and give the listener a chance to regain their orientation and equilibrium. The Mesmerizing Eye will have none of that sorta pussyfooting about. From the word go, this is a brainfrying mindfuck that sounds like the most twisted bits of Friendsound ("everyone must eat rhubarb pie...") nerve-rattlingly dragged out for the album's duration. Searing acid guitar, air raid sirens, crying babies, thunderstorms, detuned marching bands staggering past...and all of that in just the first few minutes. All you psychonauts have been duly warned. Note: All tracks on this album segue into one another, so I've indexed sides A & B as one track each. Also...despite the fact that it's considered to be an LP, this album runs a scant 23+ minutes.
