It doesn't matter if you haven't followed Roger Manning and Jason Falkner's careers since the demise of Jellyfish or you've never heard of Redd Kross, (I was never a huge fan of either band myself) this is an album that stands up on it's own.

TV Eyes started recording in 2000 and were well ahead of the vogue for all things eighties, the album first came out in 2003 and for my money is one of the very best released in that decade. It's really perplexing that it is not more well known.

One of those rare albums that doesn't have a single duff track. TV Eyes reference much of the great music of the eighties; the album contains elements of Killing Joke, Bronski Beat, Italo Disco and a whole load of other eighties influences but somehow manages not to come across as an exercise in pastiche.

All three musicians involved in this project are technically excellent players but this is no smug muso in-joke. This is a heartfelt homage to a great but too often maligned era in music that despite its 'retro' starting point manages to not be weighed down by its influences..

A solid set of well-crafted pop songs that bear up to repeated listening even now, ten years after their original release.

What's with the sour grapes? 24 Jan. 2007
By J. Sadler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If anyone is looking to purchase this album because they hope it will sound like Jellyfish, you will be let down. I'm frankly confused by the aweful reviews that I've read, and I can tell you that they're wrong...unless you expect TV Eyes to be the third Jellyfish record!

The songs on this album have great hooks, and a great 80's quazi-new-wave influenced pop sound. It's definitely closer to the Falkner solo albums than Jellyfish or Roger's solo record.

If you want great powerpop, heavy on the synths, then this is a great album. If you like Jason Falkner, this is a great album. If you are still insanely bitter about the Jellyfish breaking up (12 years ago), and think everything that each member touches will take on some remenance of their greatness, then pass on this $40 import and go buy the L.E.O. album; Andy sings a little on "Goodbye Innocence".

Great Songs!!! 25 Jan. 2007
By Mateo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
To all the Debbie Downer reviewers...let go of the past. To always have to bring up Jellyfish in anything Rodger or Jason does is just plain stupid. Everybody moves on in life and tries new/different things. Just because Jellyfish was amazing, (one of my all-time personal favorite bands) doesn't mean everything that happens after 1993 has to sound the same or be structured the same. It would be the same is expecting John Lennon's solo release, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band, to sound like "I Want To Hold Your Hand" Meet The Beatles, Era. It's not supposed to sound the same. I know if I were a painter, I would sure get sick of painting the same picture...wouldn't you?

All in all, this record is fun and the songs are great. It is what it is, pure synth pop.

Album of the year 1 Dec. 2006
By J. Abare - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the best thing Roger Manning or Jason Falkner have ever done and I know that's saying a lot. The songs are catchy as hell and the album has a very 80's retro appeal to it. Apparently these guys have been working on this material for quite a few years now. The 3 players (Manning, Falkner and Brian Reitzell) first got together for the mostly instrumental "Logan's Sanctuary" project which came out on CD in 2000. What's the deal with this only being available in Japan?

What 80's music should have been 6 Dec. 2010
By David C. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I hated most pop music created in the 80's. I mean, synths and everything were ok, but it seemed like bands wasted so much time and energy making the new keyboard and synth technology work within productions that the songwriting took a backseat. It was like a barren music wasteland for me as a teen. I even hated my favorite band's (Queen) music during the 80's. There were a few decent bands (Duran Duran, Tears for Fears, Mr. Mister). . . but now here you have two world-class songwriters injecting their talent into songs produced from an 80's synth production angle. If music had been this well written and produced in the 80's, my teens years wouldn't have sucked so bad. I love this CD.

Can Roger Manning do anything wrong (musically)? 24 Aug. 2007
By Jeremy M. Uriz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After the dissolution of the Jellyfish I was reluctant to listen to anything Roger or Andy produced. Imperial Drag came and went. I gave it a cursory listen but after the glory of "Spilt Milk" nothing could compare. Flash forward 10 years and I can't get enough of Imperial Drag. Then Roger releases my favorite album of 06 "The Land of Pure Imagination". So naturally when I found out about TV Eyes from his site, I was interested.

As has been stated and restated, the album sounds like it was written and recorded in the 80's. You can detect the influences ("Mission: Submission" has a distinct Gary Numan keyboard sound, the bass on "What She Said" sounds as if it were lifted directly from a Tones on Tail recording) yet the album is all original. The songwriting and the performances are solid.

Standout tracks include "Over the City", "Fascinating", "Love to Need", and "Fade Away".
