The LongLines are pleased to present:

A musical treatise on the immortal question of purpose and being. A query formed in the depths of cold damp caves lit by firelight, still resonating within the walls of warm dry houses illuminated by electricity. From the furtive isolation of "line of sight" to the constant interconnection of 6 billion humans via the internet, we have always asked, "Who are we?" One only need ask the question when the power is out from a storm to get an honest answer. An answer similiar to the ones given by those who drew on cave walls 30,000 years ago.

(It's also just a rock song.) smiley Heh.


Jayman - Keys and Composition
Macdude02 - Guitar
TheGranz - Guitar
Baboon - Vox and Lyrics

It was fun to be able to break out the old acoustic on this tune. Baboon amazes me with his almost instantaneous turnaround with awesome Lyrics and multi vocal tracks. Jayman makes a great muse for him. And lastly I was most impressed with Macdude and his beautiful soaring melodic lead. All stars on this song are for the talents of Jayman, Baboon and Macdude02. I was just along for the ride here.

More epic songwriting from the LongLines. Cool! I love the way you all keep a bit of signature to all the pieces, whether you're making a shorter pop-style song or a longer epic piece,and even through change sin personnel. In fact, the personnel changes keep things interesting, I think, so the signature doesn't become just flat out repetitive, eh? smiley Very good work all across your works, and, like someone said above, I can't wait until you put out an actual CD. I'd truly be interested in getting full CD quality mixes/mastering of these (and many other iComp works from many artists here smiley )

I'll be listening to this one some more!

Edit: no, its not just you Ed. I also thought it was a bit tinny but I asked J about that and he said thats the sound they were going for so I left it alone. Also, by the second listen it didnt seem to stand out as much.

Who are we?
Who are we??
The question is not, "Who are we?", but rather, "Who the heck are you?!"

I say you're four of iComp's greatest.

Always good to ask the deep questions. You have to wrestle with them to make life meaningful. And, sometimes, you just have to rock!
Ed

p.s. could just be my ears, but does the mix sound a tad "bright" or overly trebly? Maybe I'm just dull! smiley

Man, that one really comes on strong! I had to wait until the end to take it all in. I seemed to be a bit much at first, but by the end (and subsequent listenings) it felt more natural, and less forced. Love the soaring lead, and subtle acoustic guitar. Great epic song structure and vox (dig the lyrics too) - Nicely done!

Oh my, oh, my, now THAT's a rock song! A killer rock song. From lyrics that say it from the core, to the structure that epic is made of, to the hard hit snare, to the lead guitar that everyone will play air to ... that is a rock song, through and through.

Fantastic. Chilling. Seriously solid.

Thanks for the trip.
