Rob & Anne-Marie,

This sounds good. The acoustic guitar sounds "just right".

I always enjoy hearing you sing in your own language!

Nice arrangement. Excellent mix. Vocals are a delight...

Much enjoyed.

Rob & Anne-Marie,
Lovey vocal and video - unsurprisingly pro level.
Excellent guitar solo and I really liked the use of the strings.
Wonderful songwriting.

Peter

Don't speak Dutch, but this oozes a sad, yet determined vibe to me.

Love the guitar work and the switches between finger-picking and single strums. Was that two different guitars? Or use of holds?

The harmonies were lovely and quietly supportive, as were the strings. The lead vocal is quality, and sounded great in the mix.

The Dutch language just have such a nice tone to it - especially when the vocal work is as good as it is on this track.


I really enjoyed listening - and it is for sure a song I will listen to more than once.

Pro level song in all aspects as per usual!

Love the vocals and harmonies. I actually like hearing songs sung in different languages, it lets me concentrate on the melody and tone of the vocal instead of being distracted by the lyrics.

My wife speaks dutch, I'll play this for her when she gets home.

The melody is really cool, has a strong late 60s vibe to it and works well with the chamber pop arrangement.
Singing in a language other than English is an excellent blind test for the song, structure and melody. You get a pass with distinction for this one.

Excellent production! Marked with quality choices throughout: the BIAB band, style, placement of solo, vocal track(s)..especially liked the stop at about 2:00, also how the music tracks never over-took the vocal, but always supporting...very good 'architecture' to the song. Glad I decided to listen, and thanks for sharing your fine work!

Rob & Anne-Marie,

I enjoy your folkier songs like this where the pure quality of your vocals and feel for a good melody shine through.
A lovely song that communicates the sad feeling in any language.

Robert

Wow - what a beautiful song smile Proof that music transcends language, because I don't speak a word of Dutch and felt the emotion just the same. You can feel the emotion in your voice and in the music behind it.

You should be proud of this one - really well done. Thanks for sharing!

Irrespective of the language the sadness and emotion says it all...

This is beautifully crafted. The vocal, melody, mix, band choice...everything is superb.

And, as always, the video sublimely works with the audio.

Lovely!

I’m loving this. Great fingerstyle guitar and lovely vocals. Thoughtful arrangement too and the Dutch Language sounds so attractive in this idiom. Great harmonies too. It’s a yes from me - as they say in x-factor.

RnAM,

I don’t speak Dutch and have no idea what this song is about—though I kinda do. And what I mean is the song is beautiful and drips with sadness and emotion. Wonderful tune—great production. Killer!

My humble regards,

Deej
