"Evi Hassapides Watson returns with She Tames Chaos and their debut album "Oh, Fair Father Where Art Thou?" which not only is her most complete work but is also one of the greatest Rock Albums out of Greece, of all time!"

"Ύστερα από μακρόχρονη απουσία ... επανήλθε με ένα νέο συγκρότημα, τους She Tames Chaos και το ντεμπούτο τους, ένα LP (βινύλιο) .... το «Oh Fair Father Where Art Thou?» δεν είναι απλώς ο πιο ώριμος και ολοκληρωμένος δίσκος της, αλλά και ένας από τους καλύτερους ελληνικούς rock δίσκους όλων των εποχών!"

"Oh fair father where art thou?" made Athens Voice's BEST of 2016 list (by Makis Milatos).

21 December 2016, Issue 596

" Όμως φαίνεται πως τώρα η Εύη Χασαπίδου/Watson φτάνει στην ωριμότητά της και χωρίς ποτέ να χάνει το μουσικό της προσανατολισμό, που περιλαμβάνει υλικά από το progressive, την ψυχεδέλεια και όλο το ροκ μεγαλείο του παρελθόντος, δημιουργεί με το καινούργιο της σχήμα She Tames Chaos ένα στέρεο, πειστικό, πολυδιάστατο ροκ άλμπουμ με τίτλο «Oh Fair Father Where Art Thou?» και με την ίδια να βρίσκεται σε εξαιρετική ερμηνευτική φόρμα."

Μάκης Μιλάτος, Athens Voice, 27.10.2016 - ΤΕΥΧΟΣ 588

"Evi Hassapides Watson reaches her maturity and without ever losing her musical direction which consists of elements of Progressive, Psychedelia and all the Glory of Rock music past, she and her new band create a solid, convincing, multidimensional album titled "Oh fair father where art thou?" while she herslf is in in excellent Expressive and Vocal shape."

Makis Milatos, Athens Voice, Oct 27,2016 - Issue 588

«Στο σημερινό Μαγικό Μείγμα, συνέντευξη της Εύης για ένα από τα καλύτερα άλμπουμ του 2016.»

Σπύρος Χυτήρης, Μαγικό Μείγμα, ΕΡΑ Κέρκυρας, 26.10.2016

"In today's Magic Mixture an interview with Evi Hassapides Watson about one of the best albums of 2016"

Spyros Hytiris, Magic Mixture, Gree Public Radio Corfu, October 26th, 2016.
-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-

" η Εύη Χασαπίδου-Watson όχι μόνο δεν έχει ξεχάσει να δημιουργεί μουσική, αλλά το αντίθετο. Κυκλοφορεί με τη μπάντα της ίσως το πιο πλήρες και άρτια δομημένο άλμπουμ της ως τώρα μουσικής της πορείας, η οποία δεν είναι καθόλου μικρή ούτε ανάξια λόγου.
Σήμερα, μαζί με τους She Tames Chaos, με τις συνθέσεις και τους στίχους της, η Εύη προσπαθεί να εξημερώσει το χάος που διέπει τη κουλτούρα των συμπατριωτών της κυκλοφορώντας ένα δίσκο με επτά τραγούδια, τα οποία μας ταξιδεύουν αρμονικά από τη ψυχεδέλεια στη «βρώμικη» soul όπως τη γνωρίσαμε μέσα από την απλότητα του trip-hop, με λεπτές folk και dream rock αναφορές για να καταλήξουν στο progressive, με μία ισορροπημένη αρμονία και με τη φωνή της να είναι πραγματικά πιο ώριμη ερμηνευτικά από ποτέ."

Αντώνης Ζήβας, Merlin’s Music Box, 2.11.2016

"Evi Hassapides Watson has done anything but forgotten how to create music - quite the contrary. She and her band release the most complete and finely structured album of her career which is neither small or unworthy.of attention and respect.
As you are reading these lines, with her music and lyrics and her band Watson is trying to tame the chaos that governs Greek culture with an album that smoothly takes us from Psychedelia to "Dirty Soul" as we know it from trip-hop, and Dream Rock, ending up on the shores of Progressive, all in balance and harmony, with her voice truly at its best ever."

Antonis Zivas, Merlin;s Music Box, November 11th, 2016.

Track Name: Fall
Who’s gonna break this fall
Who’s gonna love me now
You, you have kissed the sky
and I‘ve been left down here to cry

'cause I’ve been crying
i’ve been trying
i’ve been lying
I’ve been holding on

Who’s gonna break this fall
Who’s gonna love me now
You, you have kissed the sky
and I‘ve been left down here to cry

How could you let me go
How could you leave me here
with no place to call my own
nobody to hold dear
Track Name: Return To Forever
running all night
and there’s nowhere
and there’s nowhere to hide

i’ve been banned to forever
i’ve been lost in a dream
so come soothe me and take me
be my home take me in

let me rest here beside you
take my sorrows away
i’ve been promised forever
but it’s getting away
Track Name: Toyland
When you were young
Υou were the ruler
Οf toyland
Αnd wishes
And you were fine
Less complicated
You had forever

And you could trust
Your mother
Daddy was a hero
And all the world
Yet undiscovered
So vast was calling

Never a day uncelebrated,
never a dreamless night
All happy endings anticipated,
things would be alright

Son of mine
Take me to your world
Let/Make me smile
Like a little girl
Bending the rules
And having my way
But most of all
Living for today
Track Name: Dagger
DAGGER / STORM IN MY SOUL
DAGGER / TWISTING DEEPER AS YOU GO
AS HELPLESSLY AS I KNEEL DOWN HERE
SO EASILY I FOLLOWED YOU HERE

DAGGER / SWEET INNOCENT PAIN
DAGGER / MAKING YOUR WAY
AS HELPLESSLY AS I KNEEL DOWN HERE
SO EASILY I FOLLOWED YOU HERE

AS PAINLESSLY AS I FOLLOWED YOU HERE
RED PEAKS BACK WHEN YOU’RE NO LONGER NEAR

DAGGER/ WHO PLACED YOU THERE
HOW LONG WILL YOU STAY
O DAGGER / WHAT WILL REPLACE YOU
IT BLEEDS EITHER WAY

NOW WHO ARE YOU AND WHO AM I
THE ONLY SIGN IS A THIN RED LINE

WHO WOULD TURN AWAY FROM YOUR TRUTH
WHO WOULD TURN AWAY FROM YOU

IT’S ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE / YOU SAID
AND THEN YOU PUSHED THE DAGGER / IT BLED
Track Name: Birthday
walking in this ancient city
no heavenly lights
no moon will shine
in my dreams

walking in these nameless streets
no smiles
nobody
no friends

you know guys next time
next week its my birthday
no point in arguing with time

i know there’s something about this

walking under the ancient shadow
its precious weight on my back

walking among my people
like a goddess among fallen gods

you know guys next year
if we’re still here
on my birthday
i’ll let you blow the candles out

i know there’s something about this

now would i run
would i scare my self
would i run away from you

what kind of freedom
what are they saying
when i’m diving in the sun

what kind of freedom
where do they see it
when the slavery’s just begun

walking with this enormous sun
feeding my heart
like a child in a never ending summer
walking with the soft breeze whispering
gazing at this bright blue sky

i know there’s something about this
Track Name: The Narcissist
did i hear you call my name
in your sleep
did i hear you let your firewall down

oh i never meant to hurt you
but you never let me love you
for what you really are

did you ever wake up in the night
listening for my cough
only to find that i wasn't there

i dreamed you weren’t there
when you were right next to me
back turned
silence

and i know who you are
and i love who you could become

lightning strikes
thunder closing in
nowhere to hide
Track Name: Supernatural
walking up n down a tiger’s tail
is not easy
you’re gambling with your life
and you’re not that fast

the rules are understood
the laws of the jungle
you better make a smart move
’n’ better make it fast

walking up n down the devil’s road
is not easy
you’re playing with your soul
and you’re not that smart

the rules are understood
and god stands for money
you better make it smart boy
’n’ better make it fast

walking on the line
between good and evil
you’re fighting for your life
you’re fighting for your soul

and climbing to the top
tastes like honey
but every breath you take
smells like dirt

just watch me as i go
i have to fight for myself all alone
i keep knocking behind closed doors
i have to fall on my knees
to win wars

and the story goes

i’m never gonna leave until i get what i want
i’m never ever going back to where i was
