Your reverbnation link keeps sending me to the sign in page. I’m not a member! However your soundclick link worked fine.

This is a really good song. Strong vocals! Loved that B3! Was that you on the guitar lead? That sounded great IMO.

A perfect end of the gig song!

Two thumbs up.

PS – I was typing as I was listening and just caught the ending. You may want to do a slower fade out as it stops quite abruptly.
It has been a joy being quarantined with my wife. We've caught up on all the things I have done wrong in our 53 years of marriage!

64 bit Win 10 Pro, the latest BiaB and RB, Roland Octa-Capture audio interface, a ton of software and some hardware.

I enjoyed this song a lot. Listened a couple of times.

It's vocally, musically and lyrically neat, clean, and lean. For me it has a very cool Elvis Costello vibe. Could have been on his My Aim Is True album along with his hit "Allison".

Tasty economic guitar lead is just right. I like the way you used the title "End of the World" with more than one meaning.

The ending is abrupt, you could fade it.

Wonderful song.

Totally agree.

This is my fav of yours so far. Very moving vocal too.

Hi Bob,

As I've said many times on this forum, I love the AABA form and your use of it in this song is magnificent. Your lyrics and melody have really capitalised on the strengths of this song form.

Here are just a few of the million thoughts that raced through my head as I listened: "fantastic vocals", "that's a very impressive way to use the hook", "excellent mix", "powerful melody", "very impressive delivery", "wow".

I loved listening to this one. I'm with Sundance in that this is my favourite song to date from your studio

I'm heading back for another listen now!

Mario, Austin -

Thanks. I fixed the link. I have a short fade on that one, but it doesn't sound "abrupt" to me. Maybe I'll make it smoother. That's a real track lead guitar (Dire Straights).

Josie - thanks for the kind words.

Noel - thanks very much.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
