Really nice harmonies on the chorus and sweet slide from Peter.
Very good!

Appreciate the review Robert.

Very cool tune guys. I can see sitting around the fire with guitars and singing this tune. Loved the acoustics. Slide was excellent Peter.

Nice!

Great vocal, and great harmonies too.

Nice dynamics, I like the way the track builds. And always love hearing Peter on the slide.

Good one guys!

Thanks a lot Dave.

I'm listening in headphones (varies from day to day) and I found the vocal to be a bit too bright and, perhaps a bit too "out front". With that backing, and the subject matter, I thought they (the vocal) could use a little more "warmth". (But, no one else mentioned anything about that, so it might just be the 'phones I'm using...)

I like it. A lot.

Appreciate all the comments floyd.

"Some days are diamonds
Some days are coal
Some days you’re reaching for the stars
Some days you’re deep down in the hole"

Diamonds in the sky and coal dug from down in the hole...what great references and overall write!

"Some memories are like old friends
So glad when they emerge
Missed chances, though, and old regrets
Are best left undisturbed"

Wow!

"I’ve had days that never seemed to end
Some days blink and you miss them"

Double Wow!

Terrific write, lead vocal, harmony, slide and mix.

The harmony blend is excellent.

Wonderful arrangement from the acoustic intro to the drum build to the slide outro.

Excellent guys!

The build up by introducing new instruments is great, the ending solo could have been longer.

Thanks a lot Janne I'm sure Leon appreciates the comments on the lyrics.

Really enjoyed this!

Lots of elements that are excellent, but kudos especially on the lyrics and vocals - nice write, and the vocals really do it justice.

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

Nice work! Lyrics are very strong on this tune. Leon, your poetry is always inspiring, but this stands out. Excellent phrasing and vocals. Rolls very smoothly. Good mix and fun slide playing! Thank you for sharing.

Misha.

Peter,

I had listened to this a few days back, but didn’t have a chance to post feedback . . . which is all good, because I got to get to listen to this one again. Love the arrangement on this . . . those stops and harmonies in the chorus are brilliant. Leon does a lovely job on the vocal . . . pretty harmonies. I think my favorite from you boys—well done, gents!

All my best,

Deej

Thanks appreciate the Dylan comment.

Good song with a fitting arrangement. I like how quickly you get into the song after the short intro and how the focus stays on the vocals.

Nice, nice, nice.
Well done Leon & Peter.
My ony crit is that the accent cymbal seems to hit a little early in relation to the vocal.
Harmonies & slide fit the song like they were conceived in the writing.
