That, is excellent writing, IMHO.

The video is your most professional to date imo (well worth watching full screen).

Rob,

The Bobs and Robs covered it well... This is stunningly good!! Great write. Beautiful production...that new Brent acoustic was a good find..nice use of the dreamy track for a solo...

Cool video.

You have raised the bar again.

ROG,

I like it that this one took you by surprise ;-)
This one was composed, however, rather fast. I've had songs that took me much longer, with a lesser result.
The combination of the Brent Mason acoustic guitar real track and the piano was such a good mix to compose on.

But of course my single goal with every new song (especially in my solo projects) is to reinvent myself whenever and wherever I can.

Did you already check out the video? It wasn't uploaded yet when you listened to the song ;-)

Thanks again for a very positive comment!

Rob

Big studio pro sound from start to last note.

As we've come to expect the write, the vocals and the audio/video production are stellar.

Also the manner in which you made seemingly disparate RT's work perfectly well together is a clinic in just how well you work with them and the remarkable versatility that BiaB offers.

The lyric is outstanding and the spoken part is absolutely seamless.

Man, you have set a HIGH bar on this!

Hi Rob (Hello to Anne-Marie, too),

As several have already said, this is stunning and one of the last things we would have had expected to come from you. It was superb and held our attention until the very end. However, we wished it hadn't ended. We've marked it go back for more listens.

It's haunting and totally captivating. The contrast of the backing tracks between the spoken and written passages is dramatic and so wonderful! Di and I experiment with combining seemingly incompatible tracks quite often and we were so pleased and thrilled how you combined those backing tracks for such a superb final product.

Simply put, that was amazing and such a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for those minutes of pure pleasure!

ALan & Di

Hello, Rob

Very excellent song and video.
As Robert said, original and haunting. Your vocals are as flawless as ever and the arrangement nicely restrained.
And the spoken words work so well.
Enjoyed my listen and watch a lot.

Best regards.

Thank you Robert!

I agree this is one of the videos that worked out best. Well, apart from the editing part, that's not entirely my doing, I'm also dependent of whatever royalty-free footage I can get my hands on ;-)

Good one man.

I love what you did making up this style. It perfectly suits the lyrics and vocals. (Which are top notch.)

That Brent Mason acoustic is awesome.

Great production here Rob.
