“Philadelphia’s Eyelevel works a lot of familiar angles but manages to come up with something original in the process. The trio makes gorgeously atmospheric pop tinged with upbeat melancholy in a shiny mix that references like-minded musical brethren like the Police (“Not My Home”) and Toad the Wet Sprocket (“Back to Me,” “Breaking Me Down”). All of Eyelevel’s gifts come together in “Butterfly,” a song that shimmers with the laconic energy of Coldplay while crackling just under the surface with a Beatlesque vibe, and in “Sublime,” where guitarist John Pompeo makes like Jeff Buckley taking Glen Phillips’ place in Toad. There isn’t a single track on Eyelevel’s debut that wouldn’t sound appropriate drifting out of a car radio, and that’s a great place to start.”
