Angels is the eighth album by gothic rock band The 69 Eyes. It is the sequel to The 69 Eyes's previous album Devils. The official release date was March 5, In Finland, though, it was released on February 28, as a limited edition.
Finding a special edition like this makes it all the more worth investigating. Yes fiends and dwellers in the dark, The 69 Eyes are back and present to us some rocking new music and on a brand new label to boot.
For those that might be unaware, The 69 Eyes are another one of those overnight sensations from Finland who have been around for almost two decades and their strong underground popularity has allowed them to build a following that is second to none. The listener will find subtle similarity on a couple of tracks but it seems as though these were done on purpose for the offer some consistency and relation to this and the last release.
They add to the melancholy Gothic theme of the track very well. Essentially there is a lot of different ground covered that keep it a solid listen for the most part.
The 69 Eyes are continually good at keeping a freshness to their sound and this time around they employed a little more of their original Glam-Sleaze side than they had done for a number of recordings. I give them credit for not only keeping it interesting and also allowing new fans in with ease, but also in their keeping the same lineup since their inception hails to Bazie, Archzie, Timo-Timo, and Jussi 69 as this is not easy to do in any band.
Given this is their ninth studio recording, I found it still a good jumping on point that does not leave you totally lost at what the band comes from. This release comes in a stylish foldout digipak case that while sporting some cool artwork on the outside is very limited as far as graphics and photos on the inside. We get one band photo and no booklet which would be my one criticism of the release since the original albums all featured lyrics, photos and liner notes in their respective inserts.
This is the perfect collectors edition for any of the most staunch The 69 Eyes supporters but it will not be one that causes them to take their original CD and pass it on to friends since its missing a couple of images that they no doubt love very much. This single was a precursor to the sixth album, released in SeptemberBlessed Be which rose to number 4 on the Finnish Album Charts and stayed in the top 10 for over a month.
