Great music mated to great lyrics. Just got done listening to one of Nigel's new ones. You somehow capture a part of him inside your music. Before I forget, I absolutely love the way the bass is allowed to surface at around the 3:20 mark.
This is fabulous music...it keeps inside itself. Superbly played. Mix of instrumentation and colors are right on. Brian, would say bring the chorus organ up just a little (maybe 1db) but, wow..that's it. Love your guitar playing, voice. This all sums up so sweetly. IMHO, there is no need to replace anything with anybody except of course the drummer! Awesome, a bonafide winner. ...Blake

Brian.....I always seem to find a high influence of Procol Harum in your music. I'm sure it's in your voice. What I find in this song is that you have captured the mood of Nigel's writing, in the music. I find the biting guitar tone extremely tasteful. I really like it a lot and wouldn't change it at all. You did something that I really like to try, on occaision......the (I'll call it a xylaphone)instrument playing in contrast with the organ, running riffs up and down different scales is AWESOME. You have a lot going on, with a steady bass and drum beat (BTW - I loved the gritty bass run at 3:18 - 3:26). The vocals throughout the verse and chorus are exceptional and very strong....all harmonies work well. Listen, Bud....No pats here....I wouldn't change a thing, you may loose more than you gain. You already provide an excellent mood. Sometimes the mood is set in the first take and the more you try to improve, the further away from you stray. +++++

Great work with Nigel's lyric Brian! I thought the organ sat just right in the track. I even came to that conclusion before I read you question about it :o) Enjoyed the listen!

Brian, love the intro to this and there you are! As always stunning vocals, and with Nigel's magical lyrics this makes for a classic sounding song. I felt a little Pink Floyd here which is just lovely. Super harmonies, love the chorus! Just Keep Breathing is a wonderful collab. Love this! Hope you are well, cheers beers, Melsi

very cool Brian. I need to get a player up with all of the songs listed. You did a fantastic job on this. Love the thumping bass line and the subtle keys. Add the guitar work and vocals and you have a winning combination.

A very present-day take on a classic. Procul Harem keys, Pink Floyd harmonies / melody, Gilmore style solo / etc. really nice. The lyrics are superb as well. Lots to like with this tune.
