Entertaining through the end. Lots of cool little production bits. Sort of the opposite of a "tears of a clown" song, to my ears/mind. Much enjoyed.

Thanks, Dave. For that one measure break, I used a piano chord, edited loop of a backwards piano, muted picking, and a drum fill loop.

Cool rocker!! The band sounds really good (drums maybe could come up 1-2db). I like the vocal processing...you may push the high end a touch. Nice harmonies! Really good job on everything!! Take care. Greg

Hi Scott,

I do like 'compact' and flowing somgs, and this one does the job extremely well.

My toes started tapping immediately, great melody and I definitely like your singing. Waht a rich usage of RealTracks. Enjoyed the listen A LOT.

Cheers,

Stefan
