EDITORS’ NOTES

Trophy Eyes’ third album forsakes their hardcore past for a brighter mixture of punk, rock, and pop. For all the album's softer moments, however, frontman John Floreani’s reflections on his history of drug abuse and violence make for a harrowing lyrical ride. After moving from Australia to Texas, he found that the physical and mental solace of his new surroundings provided him with a greater perspective on his past. The confessions continue with themes of addiction and self-loathing (“More Like You”), suicide (“Something Bigger Than This”), and the passing of youth (“Autumn”), making The American Dream the most personal and solemn Trophy Eyes album yet.

Fantastic Album

As a fan of their older, heavier, music, I was skeptical of this album at first. This album is incredible. Excellent production and an exciting new direction for Trophy Eyes.

Heartfelt, away from home

Trophy eyes for me has always been a combination of lyrics and sound. Excellent musicians and lyricists, it’s clear that everything goes into the songs. This album doesn’t have as much of the hard edge, especially compared to Chemical Miracle, but it’s heavy with emotion. It cuts deep when it presses in. They have strayed from home, and its beautiful. There’s no slump here; trophy eyes are presenting an album that sounds great and rolls along with emotion. It’s worth it for I Can Feel It Calling alone.
