Testimony to the brotherhood we share as musicians, The LongLines have persevered and are proud to release a song which started in the fall of 2010 (and more is in the pipe). Thank you to Jason for laying down this sweet, emotional bed of music (the piano rings true like a hammer on an anvil). Thanks to Matt for applying his trademark sizzle on the guitar (the Spanish-style lead is extraordinary). I wrote the lyrics, sang and produced the end mix.

We present "Lights of Eternity."

Nice to be back here with my friends Jayman and Baboon. You two make me want to play guitar, and stretch my capabilities. It's an honor making music with you.

Ah ... I breathe a sigh of relief, a LongLines tune is released, and I listen ... wow! Powerful song. All the detailed wall of sound that I recognize as The LongLines sound, which I love, and the song is distinctly unique. You guys have a great "band" sound. At the end's silence, my other half calls down from upstairs, "That was really interesting, who is it?" That is worth mentioning, IMO. smiley

LongLines ride again! This time, into eternity. Nicely done, and very well orchestrated. I don't typically deal with the pull-down star ratings but this effort goes a bit above and beyond, so have at those delicious stars, you deserve 'em.

On the lighter side: This tune appeals to a wide rang of tastes, evident by the fact that users as diverse as PunkFloyd AND Matt Granz dig it. smiley

Great to hear the Band back together. Wonderful track. Thing stands out for me is the melody. Not just tonics and dominants ... and great lyrics. Also the inventive arrangement. Sounds something slightly like CSN with elements from "The Nice"?

Definitely evokes that massive power ballad genre combined with some of the best classic prog rock pomp. I was really digging the interesting harmonies on the vocals.

Frank, Jason, Matt - so wonderful to hear a new Longlines tune! Will put this one on the ipod LongLines playlist right away. From Lovin Stone to Lights of Eternity these are killer tracks. Great work all around, especially like the harmonies on this new one, and of course the always-strong lyrics. The guitar solo after the break is stand-out. Piano rings through strong throughout, like hammer to Anvil as Frank says. And what great news to hear the Longlines pipeline of music has more songs in store for us.

makes me think of the genre of Styx and/or Rush but only that style. This is definitely your own. Very creative, but not so outside that we can't relate to it. Very Cool!!

The sound that comes to mind after the EPIC intro is that the singer sounds like Jethro Tull in his tone and phrasing... Very cool. Nice production and very "Progressive". The music reminds me of Mannheim Steamroller and some styx and someone else I can't remember... lol

It has an operatic feel like good Queensryche too... Fantastic Job to all of you guys!

Really, heavy, POWERful sound! Kinda has a power ballad-journey-reo speedwagon sound but also some early genesis or fripp progressive stuff with dennis deyoung and tommy shaw on voc? i like the lyrics too...original spin on those too. smiley

I esp. like the "through the open door i see..." change...that's cool with the high harmonies!

Wow! Floored!
The soaring guitar in the beginning had me hooked from the get go!

Wish the vocals were a little more dominant in the mix to add some more depth, but a minor quibble (what can I say, I tend to quibble).

Love the harmony vox and I really like Jay's keys in this one too. Often times I think Jay's magic is forgotten because Babs and Matt are so awesome, but I can say that Jay's touch here is the secret ingredient to make a great tune even greater!

And the lyrics are incredible also!

Love it!
