Idle Cure

Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 10 tracks
Street Date: 1994

Eclipse was Idle Cure's final release after a two-plus year hiatus from recording. They switched producers to Billy Smiley, the Whiteheart mainstay, and well-known studio ace. All the elements are present here for Idle Cure fans: great writing, superlative vocals, wonderful arrangements. The effort lacks a bit of the hard edge found in previous albums, but offers a new musicality and insight, showing the band still had some growth potential. The cover was bold and daring, showing the band like their music to be on the cutting edge of Christian R&R.

Top tracks include "What's Your Point of View," "Never Say Goodbye," and "Living Water." All in all, Eclipse was an extraordinary excursion into this musical realm, and well worth the listen!

JFH Staff's Additional 2 Cents

Eclipse was a bold attempt for Idle Cure to move away from their arena rock roots. It's the black sheep in their catalog of music and was a valiant attempt to evolve with the changing musical trends, but still, to this day, remains my least favorite record of theirs. I found the most memorable track to be "Pour Out My Soul" while most of the rest, in comparison to earlier albums, to be rather forgettable. - 1/11/11, John DiBiase of
