Nice moody piece, the guitar solos sounded very nice, and the vocals had some good effects.

An excellent write.

Wow - I really enjoyed this one. The vocals fit perfectly with the instrumentation, and it sets a really fantastic mood. I thought the slow groove on it worked really well.

Thanks for sharing smile

Rob,

A cool, moody piece.

The vocal effects work well. The BAND is really nice. I wondered what the soloist track was? - it's cool!

Good vocal. Good mix (though the drums seem to lean left a bit).

Really enjoyed that.

Bob,

Evocative lyrics.

I like the drum intro. It's sparseness sets the haunting mood.

Great instrumentation choice. Fits the song like a glove.

Hi Rob ...

Time is my biggest enemy at this time, so my comments have been brief by necessity. Hope you don't mind.

Love the ethereal feel of this. And that intro was splendid. Totally enjoyed my listen ... a real treat.

In the few moments I have several times a week, I've been playing around with this same style, but am taking it in a much different direction. It will be an instrumental rather than a vocal. Really cool ... one of my favorites from you! Best to you ...

Alan

Another nice one Rob...
Dark & somber
With a good mix & vocal delivery.
It sounds very pleasant to my ears!

BTW...
Its refreshing to hear that somewhere in this world

Very nice moody dark ballad. I enjoyed the minor chording. You have selected really fantastic style, baritone guitar and bass are really mournful, definitely murky smile The style fits excellently with your voice which has nice extra roughness at this time (and has interesting effects).

Wow, that is a strong production!

The ethereal mood is instantly captivating and
it perfectly fits the great vocal and lyric.

Almost spooky...yet not. Fascinating.

Nice use of the solo guitar also.

Excellent!

Rob,
I like this a LOT! Very unusual. Solo guitar is a bit hot at peaks, otherwise, this is one of the best tunes of yours that I have heard.
Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Misha said it first, but I'll say it as well: I like this a lot!

Nice singing, atmospheric mix, killer solos. The lyric fits the arrangement hand in glove.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi Rob,

All the instruments in this song are well chosen. It was a pleasure to listen to it, the nice solo, the drums, the guitar.
And then your singing and the lyrics... Now that's some sad story that you sing here in a fantastic way!
But I needed to listen to 'Good company' after this one, to cheer me up again (that's a joke, Rob).

Hans
