If you like 80's synth pop you'll like this set of songs. I bought this album when it was released back in 1986 and have waited years for it to appear on CD.
As you would expect from one of the greatest voices of all time, the singing is first class.
Although this is not Nash's best solo album, the 10 songs here are very strong indeed,"Innocent Eyes" "Chippin' Away" "Sad Eyes" and "Glass and Steel" being highlights.

Bought this really by accident, I bought Song for beginners as an Lp back in the days and still love it, so thought I'd try and buy some more GN - but this is awful. Going straight to the recycling centre!

Innocent EyesI enjoy much of Nash's work - in particular the lasting association with David Crosby with or without other contributors. However this album has not travelled well - indeed I dont think I would have liked it when it was first issued. The majority of numbers strain to rhyme and offer no new angles - somewhat derivative. It may be of its time but it will not be CD that I will play often.

I love Crosby Stills Nash and Young and each individual's work. But I had not heard of this album and can see why now after buying it. It is dreadful! I donated it to the local jumble sale soon after buying it.

Graham Nash goes synth-pop, and believe it or not, he pulls it off big-time 3 May 2006
By Missing Person - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you happen to pick this album up at a garage sale or something based on name recognition, without bothering to look at the year of release, you may be in for a hell of a surprise here.

Released in 1986, "Innocent Eyes" is Graham Nash's fourth solo album, and it ain't hard to see why it would have a lousy reputation among fans of Nash and the 'law firm'. Why? Because it sounds way different than what most anyone would probably associate with Mr. Nash, plus of the 10 songs, four of them weren't at all written by Graham. This album is flat-out EIGHTIES-style rock with a vengeance: super-slick production, booming electronic drums, 'metallic' and/or heavily chorused guitars (courtesy of session ace Michael Landau), and in-your-face synthesizers.

Thing is, this is slick Eighties rock at its best, and no, I don't mean that to sound like an oxymoron--this album is a BLAST. Sometimes the lyrics ARE 'dumb', but in an amusing, intentional way--Graham seems to have his tongue firmly in cheek on songs such as the riotous, insanely catchy opener "See You In Prague" and the intentionally 'annoying' and repetitive album-closing peace cry "I Got A Rock". The Paul Bliss-penned title track is TOTALLY 80's for sure, thanks in part to the additional vocals from Kenny Loggins, but it's a hook-fest that you simply can't deny. "Newday", written by Nash and longtime associate Craig Doerge, has lyrics that look bare-bones on paper, but the catchy guitar riffery, melodicism, and positive energy make it uplifting and impossible to resist. Nash also supplies a couple of raging gems with the cathartic, lyrically creeped-out "Keep Away From Me" and the massively-catchy, uptempo protest rocker "Over The Wall".

Graham wrote a couple of great ballads for the album as well. "Glass And Steel", the one song on the album NOT to feature a drum machine, sounds as though Graham may have written it about David Crosby. And "Sad Eyes" is an uplifting love ballad, with great vocal contribution from James Taylor.

Only on a couple of songs do the lyrics start to reek of mindless drivel. "Don't Listen To The Rumours" has lyrics that are just too dumb and unresolved for their own good, but dammit, it's just so appealingly catchy anyway. The reggae-fied "Chippin' Away" has a fairly dumb and predictable chorus, but the verses are irresistibly catchy, and the song's feel-good vibe really gets under your skin (Taylor is clearly audible on this track as well, despite not being credited).

It certainly doesn't hurt that Nash is in peak form vocally throughout the album, often double-tracking his lead vocals to excellent effect. If you're looking for concrete proof of Graham Nash as a brilliant singer-songwriter, you're better off starting with "Songs For Beginners". But if you're already a Nash fan and are able to appreciate fun, well-executed '80s synth-pop, then tap into your sense of humor a little, give "Innocent Eyes" a try, and you'll get a real blast out of it. "Innocent Eyes" is a true winner!

Last Nash Solo Album 12 May 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Nash's last solo album to date is a successful attempt to place his voice in a synth-pop musical setting. It worked, and so did most of the songs - more political consciousness raising in action, right in the middle of the Reagan era, which was a brave deed.

Eye This 20 April 2012
By P Magnum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Graham Nash released Innocent Eyes in 1986, it was his first solo album in six years. He clearly had been listening to the radio in that time because the album adopts a clear 80's synth beat that permeated most records at the time. The result is a fun, lively album that tanked on the charts but is a great listen. The title track is a bouncy number with Kenny Loggins providing the backing vocal. "Chippin' Away" is a nice slice of island music ala Jimmy Buffett that is about taking down the Berlin Wall which would happen not long after the song's release.

Chippin Away is the best song on the album! 15 Jan 2009
By B. J. Andrews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is always songs that stick with you and "Chippin Away" just does that. The lyrics are simple yet effective. There doesn't need to be all the jazzy poetry going on all the time. This song has not received enough airplay, yet no one forgets how they feel when they hear it. It's a feel good song linked with the memory of the Berlin Wall coming down. What can I say except, I love it!

Not very good 13 Feb 2014
By AllUpInYoGrill - Published on Amazon.com
Definitely the weakest in his catalog. Nothing against the synthesized direction that he was going in. I think that it's cool that he was trying something new. The problem is that the songs are just not very good.
