This should have been the album that put the Alarm on the path to major stardom instead, it marked the limits of their appeal. From the early fervor of their punkacoustic debut, the group had evolved into more of a mainstream rock act without ever getting out from under the shadow of their mentors, U2. In fact, here, they sounded more like U2 than ever, and now that that group had ascended to superstardom, the comparison only hurt them.

I had been wanting to get hold of a copy of Eye of the Hurricane for a while, as i am in the process of getting all the albums i loved on vinyl, on cd. The Alarm were certainly my favourite band for a number of years, and this was my favourite album of theirs. Listening to it again 20 odd years later was purely nostalgic
