such such such a lovely, sad, spooky, song... even the slight 'voice breaks' make a lovely sense. The changes are amazing, the guitar after the 'this isn't going to go away' is like sooooooo sad/spooky/sort of... I love the 'fade away', so much sentiment and the part after that... adorable and then so spooky! (but you have 'yesterday' and 'at all' twice too close for my taste, you know what I'm taking about, picky lili)
Straight to favs.

lili has nailed it pretty well JH. It's like climbing the stairs to a dark room.It's both spooky and exciting to see what's coming next and .... yes they will have to sort you out one day.

More Bad Seeds than Cave. I think the connection he shares with my wife downright spooky. It's like she wrote the title and lyric. Killing me softly.

LOVE IT!

You bring it so close to the edge of losing it, but always manage not to cross that line. Kind of reminds me of Bowie on Ziggy or Roger Waters on the Wall (quite a bit different than Ferry or Cave, but somehow it comes about)

You've got a lot going on musically, but it is extremely well balanced - even for you, John - and that is saying a lot.

Normally, I might be critical of the abrupt ending, but it works in the context of this song.

can I be in the cult now?

(I've wanted to say something like that since I was a little kid, but no one ever opened that door for me.)

So cool a tune. Your vox have a Bowie flavour in my ear. Would love to hear them louder in the mix. Everything else is damn near perfect. Love that guitar sound.

Absolutely fab, I agree with comments above you sound more like Bowie in Pink Floyd or along those lines. Those 2 artists are amongst my favorites anyway, but that isnt the reason why I am am giving you 6 stars in all areas, well done mate!

Speachless in a way. In your music I find a menue with a summary of little spices from all the great composers. It is unique and also a step forward in music development. Hats off from a great artist.

Really interesting lyrics...gotta be one helluva story behind it. Great piano work. I like how you didn't overdo the drums too. Must have been tempting with such a full piece. Good one!!

Yeah, I agree with folks who say they're hearing Bowie. Definitely. I like the way the song flows. You made great use of dynamics and layering to build it up. What did you use for your drums. I think a crunchier, lower-pitched snare might really make it more dramatic.

Thanks for sharing.

I cant get over the instrumental and the cool guitar work ...The guitar is wet like a burrito i tell you ... A tasty burrito! After some good tequila. Yum. Awesome. Wish I could give this more stars. JH, did you ever hear Michael Penn? I wish he sounded more like you ...
