THose vocals are so lush and full and fit so perfectly in the mix. This is just so danged good. Congratulations on a wonderful song and production.

Alan & Di


Hi Alan,

We can imagine that your time is scarce and Di's situation takes a lot of time (send her our love). So we appreciate your positive comments very much.

We used BIAB to analyze the chords and the Melodist function helped us big-time to create every individual vocal line.
 
Hope you like it, as always comments are welcome!

Hi Charlie, we already thanked you personally on Facebook. But once again your comments are very much appreciated!

Rob & Anne-Marie


Oh my, such a stunning and beautiful piece. You guys work so hard getting each detail right but the end result seems to the ear to be the result of effortless talent.

It is hard to imagine and a testament to BIAB and your natural abilities to how close in quality your works match up to big, expensive productions of some of the world's most talented music coming from major studios by major artists.

At different times I feel a vibe in this song of The Cars, 10cc and vocally a similarity to Air Supply.

This is another masterpiece. Loved it.....

Charlie

Outstanding!!!

All the best,
Noel



Thank you Noel!

Now that's a comment We can appreciate!

Yes, this one took a lot of work. And not just the vocals, the MIDI part was the toughest to get properly balanced.

As others have so rightly said, this is an awesome production. It's got that epic sound that you do so well. The vocals are stunning, and there are some very interesting choices in harmony. The huge build is impressive.

The lyrics are no slouch, either wink.

Edit: I forgot to mention: nice work with balancing things. It's a very clean mix, uncluttered with only the instruments that need to be playing actually playing. And it sounds bigger than it actually is (if that makes sense), which really is impressive.

So all in all, sonically stunning.

But...

The song builds with what I think is a pre-chorus, the drums hammer away, and I'm expecting to hear a massive chorus...

Nope.

Later in the song, I hear the drums build and again I think this time it's announcing the chorus.

Nope.

So when the song ends, I'm thinking "Awesome song... but where was the chorus?", because a build on the drums always has to be followed by a massive chorus. That's why it's such an effective cliche!

Anyway, very nice work.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

WOW! Standing ovation here! I think this is just phenomenal!

There are lots of things about your music that I find impressive! Your vocals (alone and combined) are a joy to listen to... But what really impresses me is the fact that your songs always sound original, not like a remix of something we've all heard before. Not only your chord patterns, but your melodies are so very interesting, even before you start layering those lush harmonies that I love to hear!

Your songs remind me of those created by people like the Beatles, Elton John, and other accomplished song writers. I hope you are doing everything in your power to get your music out where people of influence can hear it.

Above and beyond the music is your consistently tasteful video accompaniment. Your combined sensibilities have worked together to identify and capture some magical element, and you know how to weave the sorcery into every song you write. All I can say is, keep on doing whatever it is you're doing, because it works!

David,

Good to have you back!
But.... always picky wink
But not without a reason. We guess you definitely have a point.
We actually didn't realize this before.
We will definitely take this into account with our next song, but it depends on the songs.
We like to try all sort of styles wink

Thanks for listening so thoroughly!

Rob and Anne-Marie
