“Now you lie here with open eyes, and now you sleep by the phone.”
Due to the unexpected difficulty I’ve encountered finding more music from The Apples in Stereo’s New Magnetic Wonder on YouTube, I’ve been forced to cut my revue of that album mercifully short. Open Eyes is the clear highlight. At 5:12, it is the longest of New Magnetic Wonder‘s 24 tracks, but lo, I could not find the full album version to post. We’ll have to settle for this three minute edit. It’s slower, more brooding, less bubblegum. In other words, it’s just how I like my music, so it’s the only track from this album that I’m likely to spin on purpose.
