Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Nineteen 5’s raucous rock comes across strongly on this debut. Christine Wayne’s raw-throated vocals have what it takes and the songs are powerful.

“Seven Sisters” features that voice at its best and has melodic hooks that stick with you. It sounds like a hit single.

“Lollipop Eyes” is another great song. Kevin Watkins” guitar playing is truly exceptional here.

“Satellites” has Wayne sounding like Courtney Love’s long lost sister. The song’s relentlessly catchy chorus makes it even better.

“Happy Freaks” goes from soft verses to loud choruses in a good way.

The closer “Fear” is dynamic and slightly scary.

“Blind Eye Gone” is a strong debut.
