audio review : Eyes Wide Open ( song ) … The B-52s

This song, an ambiguous “love” song, sounds delightful during the chorus sections. “I don’t wanna clash,” a woman sings to her mate, “I don’t want to rehash the past.” That’s an interesting statement considering the funky 1970s-style disco beat.

If the whole song sounded like those two hooks; the second of which should’ve been extended to 16 bars with ad-libs; it would easily rank among the band’s best, but the rest, which sounds more like a long stripped-down bridge, is relatively boring.

my rating : 3 of 5
