Fightstar - Hazy Eyes
Emily Tartanella 05/06/2006
Like a day spent with the in-laws or a particularly brutal final exam, this single seems to go on forever. And ever. Three minutes and ten seconds apparently stretched into an eternity wherein this reviewer could only comprehend the vaguest murmurings of 'sincere' 'hard-rock' among this treacly mess; it smacks of both trying too hard and being too self-congratulatory. What a feat.
But listen closely - hear that? That's the sound of thousands of decent, hard-working people being subjected to this mess and entering a soporific trance, and I for one won't stand for it. As moving as roadkill.
