The Residents are an American art collective best known for their over 60 studio albums that were recorded over a period of over forty years. They also created some outstanding multimedia works, mainly three CD projects and ten DVDs. Working as an anonymous collective, their identities were kept secret until in 2017 Hardy Fox revealed himself as their primary composer. Hardy died in October 2018, but the group continue to record and perform. Recently, several new albums have been released, among them the brilliant Intruders and Ghost of Hope. Early in 2020, the group was invited to perform their seminal album God in 3 Persons at the MOMA in New York. Beautiful Eyes was a compilation album that was released on July 16th 2010 via the Robot Selling Device. The album is focused on 'beautiful but cold' pieces of music from throughout the group's history. It includes pieces of music unavailable elsewhere like 'Available Piece' which is an extended instrumental segment from the group's 1978 album Not Available which has not been released elsewhere (even being excluded from the 2019 pREServed reissue of the album). Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You hear that all the time. When the eyes you are talking about are those of The Residents it means something different. In this case the eyeball masks long used by the group were always a mysterious factor. The Residents' sense of beauty was one of distance, even a calculated distance. And so it is with this music which is beautiful but cold, you can listen but not possess. This is a great late-night listen. There are a number of unusual items in this collection, including a binaural experiment that must be experienced with headphones.
