Brief background: Believe it or not, 'Eye of the Sun' almost never made the cut on TeleChild’s upcoming album. Hadi had never thought too much of it until Charles overheard him play the rhythm and insisted they should work on it. The song became one of the band's most emotional pieces, a melancholic tune that stems from personal familial matters. Its ¾ time signature gives it an air of a flowing valse up until the song abruptly switches to a 4/4 time signature in the bridge. 'Eye of the Sun' ends on a crescendo of instruments clashing together, something that will be witnessed quite often in TeleChild’s music.
The eclecticism of this piece is extraordinary. Songs that go out of the music box called pop easily get a pass by the common listener. Not this one. The textural detail of the arrangement is commendable. There is a sharp focus on the band’s melodic and rhythmic works, proving TeleChild could be an innovative sensation. The tempestuous drumming comes to prominence where tempo changes create a hype of puzzling groove. If you're up for something out of the ordinary, this song hits it home.
