Eyeless in Gaza is UK-based post-punk duo Martyn Bates and Peter Becker and Plague Of Years collects some of their most riveting work from 1981-2005. This CD deals with two sides of the group. First is its deeply lyrical vein, with summits like "See Red" and "Lights of April," tracks that have almost never been included on "best-of" projects, despite the fact that they represent some of the most moving songs these musicians ever wrote. This collection also explores the group's more adventurous side through a number of instrumental pieces. This aspect of their output is little known and often neglected, even though it was there from their very beginnings. These two combining currents, where experimentation precedes lyricism (and the other way around), turn this album into a truly new way of (re)discovering Eyeless in Gaza. This unique architecture creates the impression that each side strengthens the other one's presence. Probably for the first time ever, the 21 tracks so redistributed provide the band with irrefutable arguments toward its rebirth. Yes, Eyeless in Gaza is one of the most underrated groups -- with this release, and the forthcoming Martyn Bates collection from Sub Rosa, hopefully this will no longer be the case.
