- Vocal sound (doubling and subtle harmonies sound excellent)
- Beautiful combination of RTs

Excellent job!

Rec (Jez) covered the salient points nicely... could not say it better, so I copy his words here.. really nice mix on this... an interesting write and a good listen. Super nice outro lead...

Outstanding guys and we look forward to many listens.

The line "Simmering resentment was all swept away" appealed to me. It's such a clever statement on so many levels.

All the best,

It is very favorable to keep rhythm with Tambourine only at vocal parts.
Therefore, it is so effective when drums appear with Guitar solos.
Leon's vocal is also nice, very fitted to this tune.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best Regards.

Thank you very much for the kind and comprehensive review.
