  • Under the Eye [Monument, 1978] B+

Consumer Guide Reviews:

Under the Eye [Monument, 1978]
If Linde showed a shred of personality, this studio rockabilly put-together might be the catchy sleeper of the year. As it is, control-board adepts will no doubt find his triple-filtered singing and multitracked musicianship appropriate to his occasionally spacey themes. And I'll just reply that if either side lived up to its first two songs I wouldn't be niggling. B+
