Inside Out

by Materialeyes

meyes99 Inside Out by Materialeyes is possibly one of the best prog rock albums of 2023 so far. None of your modern trash/metal type prog here, just, good old fashioned Hammond/Moog/guitar-based songs. Think Camel, Wishbone Ash, Barclay James Harvest. Great vocals too! Favorite track: Eric Upon Tweed.

Nickie Harte Kelly Manchester trio Materialeyes return with another fine offering of progressive music, played as it should be. The pieces are mostly epic in length, complex, and each one tells a story. True to the story-teller’s pantheon, you’ll hear tales of caution, haunting history, and even a recitation of a nightmare apparently caused by a Wensleydale cheese. Favorite track: Longship.

artrockbands I've had a few listens now, and the more I play it, the more I find to enjoy. Like a flower slowly opening it's petals, so This World unveils it's details with every passing section. The lyrics also should be at the forefront of everyone's thoughts. Favorite track: This World.

This World 09:50
This World This world is running out of time Global warming is mankind's greatest crime This world is turning into sand Deserts growing devouring the land Each day it comes as no surprise Rain forests shrink before our eyes Icecaps melting, oceans on the rise Drowning distant shores of this world This world yields a heartfelt cry It's climate changing, poisons choke the sky This world has little left to give This world has little time to live We hear dissenting voices cry The foolish, the greedy and the sly They're the ones who yet would still deny All that would behold this world This world This world This world
Eric Upon Tweed Born of the seed of a man of the earth Sown in the soil of an earlier time Raised on the promise of a better tomorrow Free of the toil and the dirt and the grime The young lad’s dad was a miner Digging a hole digging for coal He thought he’d get through to China through the core Eric was woken at a quarter to four Sleep in his eyes, mum at the door, she said Follow your dad down to the mine, Do as he says and things will work out fine, but Don’t let those dirty miners Poo in your snap, put grease on your chap Sorry dear but that’s the way they are Eric was the seed Harry McGinley was a bit of a drinker Down at the pub on a Saturday night Often said, not much of a thinker More often than not he’d get into a fight (and then he’d) Take it out on Mary Lying in bed, holding her head Harry had his demons that’s for sure Wide awake in the middle of the night He peered in through the crack in the door When he saw his mother crying He couldn’t hold the rage any more (and then he) Layed into old Harry Lying in bed, holding his head Didn’t stop ‘til Mary cried, “no more” Eric he agreed Eric was woken at a quarter to eight Mum at his side, with tears in her eyes, she said Eric my love, I’ve been saving some money You better go before he awakes I’ve got a sister Sue North of the Tyne, I’ve sent her a line Eric don’t come back here for a while Left the train south of the border Took the paper in his hand Made his way to aunty Suzie's Went along with Mary’s plan (she said) Eric how you’ve grown Come on inside, this is your home We’ll get along just fine now you and I, in Berwick-upon-Tweed Auntie Suzie had lodger Worked the boats out on the sea With a toothless smile he winked at Eric “Come on lad now, follow me” They set off with the tide Managed to keep breakfast inside Safely back at Sue’s at half past three Suzie’s lodger had a daughter Quick to smile and fair of face Came from a land north of the border In Eric’s mind a different race She gave the lad a dram Opened his eyes, made him a man He didn’t understand a word she said! Eric upon Tweed Eric my love your daddy is dying You better go before it’s too late There he found his mother crying Contemplating Harry’s fate She led him to his room Lying in bed, resting his head Harry beckoned Eric to his side And then he said Come here lad you little bastard The last you had the best of me If I hadn’t been so plastered I’d have knocked ten bells out of you Anyhow, how’ve you been? You’re looking fine, a true son of mine Eric I’m so very proud of you My Eric upon Tweed
Longship 05:32
Longship Longship Homeward bound Heading for the dawn Longship In a lonely sea To viking shore now drawn And as the autumn winds turn so cold Winter days unfold Longship In freezing rain That soon could change to snow Longship With a billowed sail Your journey yet seems slow And as the autumn winds turn so cold Winter days unfold On an eastward course from Greenland Or a northward course from Spain Sailing home from far and wide Where so many now have died Forever to remain where they were slain Longship In the mist That deadens every sound Longship Fates have kissed With new lands you have found And as the autumn winds turn so cold Winter days unfold Longship Longship Longship Longship
Horsemen 13:21
Horsemen Oh the horsemen they did come from hell They rode the wind to take from life a name In the hour after westerly In a moment locked in reverie they came And far across this tortured land They swept just like the storm-born sand that Chills the bone And turns all flesh to stone Turns all flesh to stone Oh the horsemen they did come from hell Their features bore the mark of Hades' smile Their faces were a mask of death Their sightless eyes scarcely beckoned to beguile In a blaze of arms the flame of life Extinguished by the fires of strife Become but cold As the story stays untold The story stays untold So cast your gaze to silence Turn againt wall Fear draws no distinction As to whether great or small Great or small And for those who try to run away Tomorrow is a dancing day Which never arrives For no-one survives When the horsemen ride on by They ride on by (repeat)
Clay Man 21:21
Clay Man You walk by your eyes astare Naked and cold but you don't care Your eyes are sunken and hollow And your clay drips like sorrow What goes on in that mind of yours You're carrying all the cries of war Your clay drips like blood And as you walk people stare And follow you everywhere They want to know who you are Have you come form afar Did you see the world end When everyone was your friend But now your all alone again Clay man please listen Tell us what we're missing They want to know the reasons why Could you tell us why You never cry Walk on by Clay man Walk on by Bye bye Walk on by


Inside Out

Yeh, we know, it's taken a while hasn't it?
Dave, Will and myself (Martyn) wanted to "up" our game a little and bring you, our wonderful fans, something a bit special. We are often told that we are indeed "a bit special"! With this album we have, we hope, produced five individual songs, each with it's own distinct flavour, which reflect a little of our own personalities.

Opening with This World, a nine minute track which reflects man's apparent disregard for mother earth. This is followed by Eric Upon Tweed, a humorous story about a County Durham coal miner. Next up is Longship, a haunting story about our seafaring Viking ancestors. Track four, Horsemen, is inspired by the 1921 film The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The final song, Clay Man, is an epic 21 minute track inspired by a dream following a particularly heavy Wensleydale cheese eating session by Will.

Thanks for listening and supporting us.

Dave, Martyn and Will


released August 18, 2023

Dave Westmoreland - vocals, acoustic guitar, keyboards, flute
Will Lawery - vocals (Clay Man), guitar
Martyn Howes - vocals (Eric Upon Tweed), guitars, keyboards, bass, drums, engineer, producer

These three, young at heart, old ‘Yorkshire Tykes’ have done it again in producing another wonderful album of Progressive Rock saturated musical splendour. Their latest album titled “Inside Out” is a masterpiece of contagious melodic charm, a series of musical scores embracing a whole host of subtle time changes and vicissitudes in musical direction throughout the entire score. Each of the five songs is so differently conveyed in musical terms that it leaves you quite flummoxed as to the immense range of ideas and musical concepts that they put together and deliver so brilliantly.
Geoff Penn.

This World - "love the true Westmoreland epic, best for me so far on first listen, a great progrock track!"
Eric Upon Tweed -very amusing indeed
Bob Prigmore, Beat Route Radio and Epic Prog Radio music presenter

...I’m glad to report that this a most interesting and rewarding release, whilst it may only has five tracks, it is an album of quality material...
‘Inside Out’ is a most rewarding release and more than worthy of investigation if you can. I think you will like it a lot, there is much to enjoy
John Wenlock-Smith - www.progradar.org/index.php/2023/08/07/review-materialeyes-inside-out-by-john-wenlock-smith/

Alain Bourguignon wrote "It is a magnificent album, very fine, which is appreciated immediately then more and more over the listening. Thank you for giving us such good, intelligent, dreamy music. We need it badly at this time!"

"one of the best (prog rock) albums so far of 2023 and well worth checking out."
Eddie McFadden www.facebook.com/kissthatprog

This album is unashamed progressive rock, and I really like its warmth, the stories behind the five tracks presented to us. I wish that more children were taught that music at its best tells a tale and can fire the imagination. It is what attracted me to it back in the day and I have never really lost that sense of wonder – clearly, neither have Howes, Westmoreland, and Lawery...
Inside Out is a good album, one which repeated listening brings reward and differing textures, always the mark of quality. Thoroughly enjoyable and well worth your time
