As a big fan of the sound of an acoustic guitar, I must say that this was a feast for the ear!
And your vocals are clear and fits nicely in the song!
I like the entirety of this song very much!

There is no denying you know what you're doing. Love the layered "images" section. All the sounds are well recorded with the exception of the acoustic guitar which is direct-in. This song, with its richness, needs the rhythm guitar to be recorded with a microphone to get the full resonance of the the instrument.

I wish I could sing as well as you. The positive reviews certainly are merited.

I really like your vocal control, its very soulful to my ears.
This song has a lot of crossover commercial potential I think, as its a catchy tune that stays with you.
Thanks for posting this for us!

very nice - however if this was done in a studio a little bit of resonance added to your voice would really help it to merge with the song :)

the strings are a nice touch - as for the bells though - I feel they are indeed nice but I thin some more celestial feeling bells might fit a little better - I found them a bit too .. harsh? I don't know..

anyways great song :)

This is a great song. You have a great voice and the lyrics are good. Production is excellent and all the instruments are well played. The song is well constructed. I probably would have put it in pop genre.

Great vocals . . . harmonies . . . lyrics . . . same old thing with you. I love the break / bridge at 2:30 +/- & the bells (?) at 3:12. What planet do you come from? Do you ever write a less than great tune?
08/22/09 07:20:18AM @richard-john:

The true test of a song is how well it can tranlate to differant styles of music and still hold its own. I'm so enjoying this song and your voice that I want to write up a jazz arrangement of this piece.

Beautiful song with perfect treatment. The melody is so pure delivering the lyrics patiently, plainly, with strength of feeling. So many nice touches in the mix that feature the wonderful vocal talent here. Totally fell for this track on first listen. It speaks for so many so well. Nicely done!
