…and 2018 started with kind of a spiritual awakening:

The World Won't See

Sometimes I wonder…
Do I understand anything at all?

I don't know – but, I belive that perspective changes my view – and my heart changes looking at life between the crosses…

I'm no preacher, just a grateful songwriter that once again have to say thanks to PG Music and the whole team that makes BiaB – a truly great software!!!
BIG THANKS!

Still believing that the best songs are not yet written! Keep on the good work in this fabulous forum! :-)

Einar,

This is beautifully done!

Really nice use of BIAB tracks that we don't see folks using often. There needs to be MORE of this kind of music in the Showcase.

The outro guitar is nice. Is that you?

Excellent vocals. Excellent mix.

Excellent music!

Loved the low bass of this song, made it very strong. Your vocals and overall production were great! Thanks.

This was great! I agree with Floyd that you took advantage of sounds we don’t hear that often here and the result is stunning! By the those vocals were perfect! Thanks, Torrey

This is a stunningly good production! The dynamics are so well done and the layers of sound very well mixed.Vocals and harmonies are excellent.
The overall feel reminds me of Peter Gabriel - at his best.

This is really from outside of the square!

Masterfully created and impressive from every angle.

I can hear the quality of The Moody Blues within the production.

Excellent, excellent, really excellent. You must be extremely pleased with your result. Genius personified.

Thanks a lot for your great feedback, Floyd!

I try to develop my songwriting in conjunction with BiaB – blending trad songwriting with new styles. And BiaB do deliver – a great creative tool for finding new paths in the mysterious songwriter-universe.

And yes, I do play the guitar.

This is fantastic song and arrangement. I had to listen to this on my headphones to hear all the fine details. Excellent work on the mixing also. Your beautiful voice really fits the mood. Reminds me of Eric Woolfson's musical work.

Wow - this is a perfect example of how diverse Band-in-a-Box truly is. I don't often hear songs like this on the showcase, and it really caught me off guard. I'm almost getting a Phil Collins vibe here (almost). It is incredibly unique, and honestly I don't think I would change a thing here. When it picks up at 1:50, it took it to a whole other level.

You seriously outdid yourself - thanks so much for sharing smile

This song has a really cool mix to it. I really enjoyed what you did with the entire song. Somewhat on the tails of what Deryk said, this is a very unique flavour we don't see a lot in the user showcase. This has been rather refreshing! Thanks for the share.

Outstanding, totally beautiful. I think the lyrics are Christian motivated but I could be wrong. I always like to read the lyrics, but I don't think you posted them anywhere.

Very refreshing approach.
Very cool vocals and very original percussion in this song.
Also detect a subtle Alan Parsons influence (and you can"t go wrong with that).

Thanks for listening, Steve – and for paying attention to the bass.

Had an idea of trying to use something different, more like a moving texture in the lower parts – and BiaB…
…well, BiaB took the idea to a new level.

Hi,

What a terrific change of pace for the forum! Simply beautiful - as Floyd said, more of this would be a good thing.

I fully agree with what Ron & Ann-Marie said. I think they said what I was thinking better than I might have said it. This is top-shelf all the way!


Alan

Thanks Scott!
The vocals somehow worked this time – I'm a guitar player, not a singer ;-)

Robert – I'm not worthy! Peter Gabriel did Sledgehammer in 1986. That album had a great impact on me – and probably still has…, and you?
Thanks for the comment on layers and vocals. Did the mix on very low volume because of all the layers.
