‘Vampire’ represents a step back for Eyedress

Vampire in Beverly Hills, the latest release from the singer-songwriter and rapper Eyedress, is a massive downgrade compared to his other albums. 

The new album brings the same mediocre beats one after another and seems to be a money grab. Many of the songs featured on Vampire in Beverly Hills seem to be a sad attempt at creating a new trending TikTok song. 

Other albums from Eyedress have been generally well produced, but this album overuses a techno beat and Auto-Tune. As an example, the song “Stay Alive” features the same kinds of lyrics and sounds as many other songs on the album.

While the album does disappoint massively, there are a few memorable songs within it.

“Secret Admirer” is by far the best song on the album, as it has some creativity and it is similar to Eyedress’ well known style. Another solid song is “Sinning In Heaven,” which features decent vocals and lyrics.

The album uses an ’80s rock style and sounds from an old-style video game with techno noises throughout. If Eyedress had done this properly, the album would be a hit, but it is horribly executed.

The entire album appears to be rushed and generally disappointing.
