I'm surprised I'm still here after telling a mod where to go in a PM - I was very emotional, I was. Wink Anyway, going by the snippet, I like the sound of this one, has the potential to be one of my favourite CH tracks. It has a very sombre resigned sound to it and the driving instrumental part seems to go into emotional territory Neil, or at least CH, have not approached before. Kind of like a much sweeter and slightly spookier Roger Waters solo track.

I hate downloaded music at the best of times, I want something physical. I hate it even more when they restrict what can be legitimately bought depending on your location. I'd love to get Eyes Grow Heavy and Turn It Around legitimately but it's looking like it may not be possible. Have record companies not worked out that stunts like this drive some towards dodgy downloads.

Agreed. I don't understand why it's perfectly fine to purchase a physical CD or DVD from another country containing content unreleased in your own country and have it shipped to you, but if that material is only available via download or streaming, you are cut off if you are in the wrong country.

I have always bought tons of import CDs and DVDs, and will continue to do so whenever they are available.

It doesn't make sense to me that now that it is easier than ever to obtain material illegally, the record companies have made it so restrictive to obtain the material legally.

I'll hang on until Intriguer is released here in the US and hope that the bonus tracks are also made available here. But if not, I'll hear them one way or another by whatever means necessary. If the record company doesn't want my money just because I live in the wrong country, so be it.

'Eyes Grow Heavy' is the best of the lot. IMHO hands down. Why it was left off the album has left me feeling incredulous. What a loss!


Is it not on the album? (Won't get my copy until Tuesday)

Th guys played the song on both nights at the Apollo,so I assumed it would be on the album!

Seems a bit strange,great live as well!

just checked the set lists for both gigs,can't see it on there,but they definitely played it on at least one of the nights,have to wait for my usb to verify!

Presumably the track is not known by another name now!

What is the best way of obtaining that version Finngirl in the UK?

The track is showing on the spotify listing for the UK but is not active yet. Might be able to purchase seperately 14th June, hopefully.

H
and weirder still...the Deluxe version appears twice on NZ I Tunes $16.99 and $21.99...but guess what..on searching for the Turn It Around by song title...it appears under a search as being part of the Deluxe edition...but is available as a separate track to download, but does not appear when you search under the Intriguer album!!!! anyway...very happy to get both this and Eyes Grow Heavy for less than $5.00
EYES GROW HEAVY

We stand on guard till our eyes get so heavy
We hang on tight till our hands grow so weak
All precaution prepares you for nothing
When lights go down on the street

And when the morning comes
You won’t remember too much of anything at all

They’re in my future they’re fantastic visions
They’re tall and sleek and they tower over me
Tie me down and I’ll beg them for mercy
lay paralyzed in my sleep

And when the morning comes I won’t remember too much of anything at all

Before they break in to steal the silver
Thieves come round to admire the lock
At the end of each waking hour
Just one more chime on the clock

(Choir)

And when a moment comes
You won’t be aware of his touch
Or anything at all

Where does Neil keep finding these melodies? So often the exquisite beauty of his songs take me soaring someplace that no other pop artist can accomplish. So I ask;

Where does genius go to find that cup of excess?
From whence does genius come, here to us impress?
Atop some Sinai of song and verse and soul?
Assembled there, revelation the easy goal?

Neil is a musical genius.
I wonder if Eyes Grow Heavy will be added to the request a song area of the Crowdies website?

Prolly wishful thinking Frowner

I'd request it!

Very frustrated I can't get to hear this song because I'm in the Uk & Turn It Around because I didn't want to fork out again for an itunes download when I'd bought the actual physical deluxe version.
I'd be more than happy to pay for these tracks but I can't even do that, Turn it Around isn't on the UK site & Eyes Grow Heavy only seems to be available to those in Australia/New Zealand.

Bring back the days when singles came out in fifteen formats.


Looks like Universal have shot themselves in the foot with this. I'm sure the UK/Europe market is massive and most fans in these regions would gladly have bought the track. However I'm sure most people now have or will get the track by whatever means.
a week in and again,(or rather, STILL) number #1

seriously, what will it take to get this song out there to 'the masses'

Still thinking if anything at all a B side is going to be the best bet but.............
is it just me or has anyone else read through the lyrics and realized suddenly that he's seems to be talking about nocturnal alien abduction?

not to mock or make fun of this beautiful song...and it's only my interpretation, which i'm only half serious about because i can't really imagine Neil would actually write a song with this in mind...

*cue twilight zone music*

Unfortunately not, I'm checking every torrent site to download, I wanted to be fair and buy it (as I did for every album and available b.sides on Itunes). I even have an Itunes account in the Australian store, but this damn song is just downloadable with the whole album.... Frustrating

Well done for your perseverence, keep trying Bart Smiler
Good news for any Frenz who haven't been able to get copies of 'Eyes Grow Heavy/Turn It Around.

- this reply just in from Sub Leo :

I have also had permission to put the songs up on our player so we will have that done in the next couple of days.
