Biography

Three years in the making, Paul's Tomb: A Triumph marks Frog Eyes' thunderous, frantic, fiery return. This is a slow-brewed masterpiece that is unmistakably Frog Eyes, a new album that was very much worth the wait. On this point we feel unassailable: Frog Eyes keeps getting better and better.

This is an album with weight. It's wrapped in a gauze of fuzz, but a fuzz that's ... Read more in Amazon's Frog Eyes Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for god's sake! 6 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The sheer breathless energy of Carey Mercers distorted vocals and his relentlessly imaginative delivery, set against a blur of clunking drums, shimmering keyboards and hacking, churning guitars, creates an atmosphere quite unlike any other. Its so organic that you are not even sure whether there are songs in there at all on first listening. Then you play it again and again and it grips you utterly. the lyrics bleed through, and the drama and beauty swell into something that has no right to be ever captured on something as prosaic as 'rock record'. The UK is utterly stifled with formulaic and slick 'product-placement' rock at the moment. Who would have thought that music this ambitious and timeless could still be made. Worth moving to Canada for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frog Eyes Addiction 11 April 2011
By Brian Hocum - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Frog Eyes (and there links,Blue Pine, Wolf Parade, Sunset Rubdown Ect...) are so unique and they resonate with some primitive chord in our psyche and are a thrill to listen to. I believe Modest Mouse, Besnard Lakes and Frog Eyes and the most moving and important bands in the past fifteen years.
5.0 out of 5 stars an all-timer for sure 21 Mar 2007
By a concerned citizen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
one of rock's finest albums in recent memory. every song on the album proper shines -- the melodies are perfect, the music memorable, the songwriting haunting. the bonus tracks aren't shabby either.

this is rock music, but it comes from a totally unique place all its own. the lack of cliche is refreshing, as is the lack of anything resembling filler.

my favorite song is "a latex ice age," which starts with quiet, hushed vocals and builds slowly into a monumental crescendo via the most perfect chord progression i have ever heard. it's a stunning song; i'd liken it to a long lost 50's prom ballad being performed by the residents of a post-apocalyptic world on instruments they made themselves out of scrap metal (and who are themselves stunned by the timeless beauty of the music they are creating).
5.0 out of 5 stars Frog Eyes' Early Work 8 Feb 2007
By Doppopopolis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
What can I say, it's Frog Eyes at their best. If you think "The Folded Palm" was good, listen to "The Golden River" and "The Emboldened Navigator and the Seagull Dots." "Spencers Song for Carey to officially sing," off Emboldened Navigator has a sound I wish they would theme to an entire albulm. The piano is amazing and accents Mercers garbeled screams, especially at the start of the chorus. The first three songs on The Golden River will grab you, and make you forget Wolf Parade even exists. Frog Eyes is obviously the more unique and experimental of Spencer and Mercers projects.
5.0 out of 5 stars That singer's cool as sh#@ 29 Aug 2007

Format:Audio CD
as is the megolith of an album (I guess it's two?). I'd say these guys are more compelling than any other "indie" band (or otherwise) out there right now. If you like a sense of urgency in your music, this is your band.
Totally unique sound and vocal style too. You can't go wrong with this one, and it's sure to keep you busy for a while.
