The best thing about ‘Real Eyez’ is, when you listen to P.A.T. sing about his joy for the music and his work, you genuinely believe him. His devotion transmits flawlessly through his song.
The song tackles major issues facing our society at large and us as individuals. It is about what it means to have a passion for your work despite the trials of life and the struggle to keep our feet on the ground. Another element that makes it stand out is its sheer smoothness.
The instruments blend together instead of canceling each other out. It carries the elegance of classical music. This gives the song a polished, glossy flavor. P.A.T’s voice is also a strong asset to the song. He has an incredible flow and creates an entire instrument using just the words.
