Song Review: ‘Eye To Eye’ by Astronauts, etc.

Astronauts, etc. – “Eye To Eye”

The Lyrics


All I want is reciprocation
I don’t care how you spend your nights
There’s no need for that conversation
As long as we see eye to eye
I’m tangled up in your hesitation
Thrown off by the space you keep
I’m all for a little recreation
So get out of the back of my mind

It doesn’t matter how thick I build it
You break through when I turn around
And I’m left to deal with the absence
I can’t help but be conscious of now
Can’t tell you I’m the weaker rival
I shouldn’t let my secret out
I’ll just hang on to your arrival
Isolate my love from my doubt

Do you know what I’m always thinking?
Which way would it sway your mind?
I don’t think that I want an answer
It’s enough to be let inside
Do you know what I’m always thinking?
Which way would it sway your mind?
I don’t think that I want an answer
It’s enough to be let inside

All I want is reciprocation
I don’t care how you spend your nights
There’s no need for that conversation
As long as we see eye to eye
I’m tangled up in your hesitation
Thrown off by the space you keep
I’m all for a little recreation
So get out of the back of my mind

Do you know what I’m always thinking?
Which way would it sway your mind?
I don’t think that I want an answer
It’s enough to be let inside
Do you know what I’m always thinking?
Which way would it sway your mind?
I don’t think that I want an answer
It’s enough to be let inside

My Review


I think this song hits a home run for me as soon as it starts to play. I love the Rhodes piano introduction to the song. And when the beat starts, it’s an unexpected drum pattern. The vocals are mellow but it moves fast enough to give it a groove that compliments the music when the guitar riff it takes off.

This artist is not considered “Neo Soul”. In fact iTunes categorizes this artist as “Electronic”. But it is my personal opinion that this song IS a Neo Soul song. If it is not, it certainly contains Neo Soul elements especially when it comes to the Rhodes piano introduction of this song.
