The Crash That Took Me's sophomore record is a wonderland of sonic swirls, a roller coaster ride of emotional and psychedelic landscapes. On Chlorine Colored Eyes The Crash has captured beautiful dynamics ranging from a single mellotron to a full wall of sound and have picked up where the Beatles left off with the tape experimentation from their psychedelic stint in the late 60s, also reverting back to other experimental methods on tape machines such as (A.D.T.) automatic double tracking for all the vocals, varied speed, reverse and many other methods. The band also spent time recording at a paper machine factory to capture the repetition and sounds coming out of the factory. The Crash have tapped into the tension and beauty of the late sixties lyrically and sonically, but still falling down the worm hole to evolve into something unique of their own. The record was recorded produced and mixed by Casey Diiorio at "Vintage Heavy" Valve Studios, Dallas TX. Recorded analog to 2" tape mixed down to 1/2" and mastered by Sean Magee (Beatles Mono box set) at Abbey Road Studios in London,

Dallas' seven-piece The Crash That Took Me, who impressed the living daylights out of me with their '07 debut Orchestrated Kaleidoscopes have returned with Chlorine Colored Eyes, an opus that fans out to a bevy of far flung sonic nooks and crannies, while never relinquishing its grasp of terra firma. The Crash agilely corral the expansive ebb and flow of their heady, semi-orchestral traipses, which coincidently or not, dip into the bittersweet yet enthralling stew that Silversun Pickups and My Bloody Valentime are apt to frolic in. Assisting The Crash Chlorine are contributions from such relatively likeminded cohorts as the Polyphonic Spree and Apples in Stereo (
