Very cool groove and nice vocals (good interaction between lead and backing). Great choice of beat too - drives the tune along nicely. Well done.

rock and roll! Yes! Love the break in the middle where Pete hangs on the major line... then the rolling bass comes in. Nice moving along feel. Also like how it walks the line between major and minor... right in the middle most of the time. Would be fun to play live. - J

The acoustic tone on this is lovely and the melody is just floating nicely on top of the music...

Good production, but I feel that the vocals are just a tad too high in the mix...

And finally the artwork as Bass said, is excellent...

I just want to thank everyone for their comments in the first week this song was up. 144 plays, a silver note icon, and #8 on "The List" at one point are all encouraging, but not as much as the comments. Everything will be taken into consideration for future attempts, from working on mixes to trying to repeat things that you all say worked -- including working with great artists like pete. Thanks again, pete!

OB! OB! OB!

This deserves some kind of award for lyric writing....such imagery, and purpose; every word splashes sea water into the face of the listener and fills their heart with hope. smiley

Every word has weight and meaning that swirls and blows, tosses and heaves the imagination....this is brilliant stuff....amazing work...

What a great pairing you and Pete make on this... smiley

PS. Don't look now, but there's a chicken and a googily eyed alien on board the ship, are they wearing life jackets? Another touch of genius!

Gonna do more one day?

Hats off guys!
