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.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
