Richard Middleton  notes that licks in rock music are often used through a formula and variations technique and that "Gypsy Eyes" "is put together from variants of five stock ideas...familiar from other recordings in the same style."
He concludes that "the combination and variations of these formulae are many and highly imaginatve. But the basic formulae are so simple that the recording could well have been worked out 'in performance.'"
