The turn into Greek mythology was a bit of a surprise, but its one guy`s rambling on life, so it fits.
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.

Good vocal (as always).
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.

Peter & Leon, Love it!

Great vocal, outstanding lyrics and mix.

Loved the intro.

Two thumbs up


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.

"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.

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.


Cheers

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."
