A wonderfully mixed blend of affectionate touches and electronic textures. Its a particularly masterful journey into Ben’s shoes the way that “Silly monkey” becomes such a powerful chorus.

Thank you, Admiral. That’s pretty much what I hoped would come across.

You’re so kind. I, too, found it funny that I drew Ben… in a very good way, of course. :)

“Anthem” is exactly what I was thinking when I was working on the chorus… just what I wanted. Thanks for your kind words, snowflake.

This is fantastic! I was thrilled when I saw that you had drawn me, you are so creative…

I love the dark electronic backing track. It provides a great ironic contrast. I also love your harmonies and how you blended multiple pellas. They work together splendidly.

Thanks so much!

Ahhhhh wonderful! I’m so glad you like it! (And thanks for the extra flattery… I was quite excited to have been assigned you… and to check out all of your stems… but I kept getting pulled towards “Silly Monkey.”) Awesome- I tried to create a contrast will a little darkness and some light bells and such. Thank YOU for writing such fun songs to work with!

So fun and creative. Also quite eccentric but in a good and accesible way. Very british. Very good.
