The vocals and guitar are simply outstanding.

Previous posts have hit all the highlights already so we'll just say that you and scott jumped off a cliff and landed in a good place!

J&B


J&B,
I`m glad you enjoyed our cliff jumping!
As said, I`ve signed up on songtradr and as long as the hoops you have to jump through there don`t lessen music making fun, who knows?

Robert

4. Beautiful and very functional guitar work from Scott
5. And then there's that gloomy voice ;-) perfect for this song.
6. I detect several influences here: Fleetwood Mac, REM, Tom Petty, all favorites of mine!

This is just super!

Rob


I agree completely and I couldn't have said it any better.

This is just an outstanding collaboration.

This is a keeper for sure.

Kenny,
That`s appreciated - glad you found our efforts entertaining.

Scott, your guitar work shines brilliantly! It's a perfect fit with Robert's musical extravaganza.

I cannot imagine how much effort has gone into getting this production together! It's incredible.

All the best,
Noel


Noel,

Yes, lots of work putting this together- thank you for your appreciation.
You mentioned "cinematic" ; my writing does seem to work that way...images I try to put into words.
btw, Scott`s guitar on the repeated theme is double tracked, with the wah playing under the non-wah recording.

Thank you, Greg.
I had no plans to start revisiting the psychedelic era when BiaB reinvigorated music making for me... so credit to the program for giving ideas a way out of my head and especially to Scott for giving them wings.

Wow, great work on this! I liked the operatic sort of vocals throughout the tune. The arrangement is on point, and in general this is just a strong piece of songwriting.

Thanks so much for sharing smile

Hello, Robert

Amazing production!
Very unique chord progression and melody!
Scott's guitar tone is also very unique.
The frightening atmosphere is well expressed.
You have a special ability to make music of your own.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Hi Shigeki,
Thank you, that`s very kind.
I guess it was intended to convey impending doom, so I`m glad you liked the atmosphere!
