Second (this is also the last album from EYES) full length release by Eyes, fronted by legend Jeff Scott Soto on lead vocals, Steve Doughtery on guitar and Aldy Damien on drums. 10 tracks including: It's all over, Cheyenne, City nights, Love is alive, Way back home, Living on the edge, and more… Their first is more pure hardrock, this is CLASS AOR !
While the 1990 self-titled debut release by the band Eyes is certainly a good album, the main reason to check it out is the presence of journeyman vocalist Jeff Scott Soto. Soto, who has made his mark working with the likes of Yngwie Malmsteen, Axel Rudi Pell, his own band Talisman, and (briefly) as lead singer of AOR icons Journey, joined Eyes as a replacement for James Christian, who left to front House of Lords. The self-titled Eyes album was very much a product of its time, straddling the line between hard rock and AOR. It's the kind of feel-good party rock from a time when bands like Firehouse, Bon Jovi, Bad English, and Damn Yankees were dominating the airwaves.
Long Time Coming, the debut solo album from guitarist Jay Soto, takes aspects of a relatively wide array of training and puts them together for a somewhat varied fare. A turn in a Christian band or two gives Soto some basic hymnal-type melodies, a turn in a Latin band gives him some simple flairs, and a round as a finalist in the Guitarmageddon competition has given him some practice in straightforward, virtuosic speed passages. Nearly the whole of the album is filled with Soto-penned originals, though the classic "Black Orpheus" closes out the set. The performance is nice, with hints of the nylon-stringed masters.
On April 29, 2009, Soto released his third album, Mesmerized, and is currently climbing the contemporary jazz charts. “Mesmerized is a high octane collection of the highest order and further cements the position of Jay Soto in the major league of smooth jazz guitarists.
