Music are proud to announce the re-release
of the second Mind’s Eye album ‘Waiting
For The Tide’ with 2 new bonus tracks
from the bands archives. The album predates
the worldwide critically acclaimed ‘Walking
On H2O’ (released Jan 2006 –
Lion Music)’, by some four years and
is the second Mind’s Eye re-release
on Lion Music following ‘A Work Of
Art’ (re-released in 2005)’.
For The Tide’ was initially released
in 2000 and received critical praise back
then due to its different approach to progressive
rock, sounding unlike anything else at the
time with the bands trademark melody and
depth. The album has long been out of print.
Lyrically the album reflects on actual happenings
in the bands life and has a deep and profound
content. Some of the bands favourite tracks
from the album are "Frozen Tears"
a song about homeless people, "Calling
(father to son)" a song about a bad
relationship between father and son, The
two part song “Closer” and “In
My Mind” about a bad repeating dream,
“Primitive Light” about racism
and “Circles In The Sand” about
a person who runs away from home.
album is also home to a Mind’s Eye’s
bonus instrumental track, “Spellbound”
which shows how much the band wanted to
achieve success in this business. Just listen
to the playing, Daniel and Fredrik where
19 years back then and Johan was only 17!
bands aim when making the album was to make
a marriage between melody and aggressiveness.
Bringing in technical, polyrhythmic playing
with unforgettable melodies with deep lyrics
the sound is uniquely Mind’s Eye.
For The Tide’ gives a great insight
into the early development on Mind’s
Eye and is essential listening for any prog
rock fan. The band are currently working
on a new album for Lion Music.
