Eyes of the World is the third studio album by guitarist Tony MacAlpine, released in 1990 through PolyGram. Titled under the band name "MacAlpine", the album is a departure from his previous work in that it is more commercially oriented, with none of his usual instrumental tracks in the style of neo-classical metal or piano études. According to MacAlpine himself, the project was indeed an attempt to emulate other hard rock acts at the time.[4]
