Robert

Very very atmospheric, and a lovely backing for your lyric.

Nice playing by Scott throughout, suits the song perfectly.

Lovely.

Intriguing title and not disappointed with the dreaminess of the resulting sound. Of course, we were also immensely engaged in the unfolding story and even in the aftermath, such a microcosm of this stinking modern world. Very floaty result, and Scott's guitar, sparse and effective, works so well here. I really enjoyed this.

Love the sound - dark and moodly, and really captures the "belly of the beast" you're singing about.

Scott's playing is excellent here.

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

Hi Robert and Scott,

You've both done a great job!

When I started listening, the new-age, floating, dreamy soundscape reminded me of the musical "Hair". I recall that throughout "Hair", sound was often used to create mood and physical and emotional sensations.

That's when your work captured me.

This journey was an experience and not just a simple song.

All the best to you both,
Noel

That story was riveting, I was on edge until they got out. This song captured the story well. Lyrics were great, loved the percussion and guitar. Great gestalt in the arrangement of this song. Well done.

The music has that ethereal "Twin Peaks" sound that I like. Love the lyrics as always. You have an original way with words, observations, and story telling.

Robert and Scott,

I completely agree with floyd.
"A really cool soundscape. Innovative instrument choices. Carries the narrative well. Scott's guitar fits perfectly."
Loops Waterphone/Rainstick/Bodhran are doing a very good job.
As Janne says, this song is closer to Robert's usual song.
And I also think it is welcome change.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.
