Thank you RF and thanks to Mr. Bratty for the bass part. I could not have come up with anything so engaging. I never thought this would be more than an exercise. Hope to submit a new recording sometime soon.

I like the song itself quite a lot, so cheerful. The mix on the other hand doesn't do much to enhance the song. I would also leave out the double track. The guitar solo could use some long decay or something. The build up to the drum part seems to take a long while and then sort of disappear... and hello to TheBuyer.

I didn't really notice so much after getting some more listens in. Perhaps its just the way the harmonies blend. Perhaps I overstated. Good to see you have other songs up. I'm going to buy your CD instead of just downloading everything here at RF, although anything not on the CD will find a folder on my Macbook.

I've been waiting for this to exit the backstage area. This is what I need to hear in order to award 5 stars...

I haven't been this excited about a song on RF since "Creature From the Deep". This is very well crafted and the only thing I can say distracted me was a slight bit of pitchiness with the harmonies in the first way/day . Love the moog sounds and the way you come out of the guitar break at the end. I will be downloading this for certain. I'm envious of your ability to craft a song such as this. And I've only listened to it on my laptop speakers!!!

Sort of feeling it but it takes too long to get there and then the payoff is a little disappointing.

Woke up this morning hearing ...on the level... on the level... playing in my head. Hope I don't ruin this song.

Thanks and thanks for the lyrics too. I was looking for liner notes before and couldn't see anything. I don't have an interpretation for 50*/80* but I like the lyrics too. Bonus! I do prefer the version on the link. Leave us wanting more. One of the things I've learned from this site is to reduce to simplest form. Cheers.

Liking the underwater steel drum sounds and the rate it slogs on, but agree w/ others it needs a little more or a little less (or both) of something.

Wow. I'm giving myself permission to enjoy this. Sounds like it is finished already anyway. Gotta feature this so everyone gets a chance to hear it.

Intro is much too long... 16 bars should do fine. like the way the song moves along, like the lyrics pretty much, but not the fx. Has potential.

Like the first half a lot. Reminds me of a David Lynch soundtrack. I'm still with it through the first instrumental part but lost it about 3/5 of the way in.
