This layering of melody and harmonies is interesting. It’s got a hypnotic ethereal quality I like.
The guitar line melody is just pretty, with a little baroque flourish. The bass is just a trifle muffled, although I wouldn’t want it “loud” or “raucous” by any means. The vocals sound great in this mix, although this has a kind of Manchester sound feel to it for which a bit more fx applied to the vocals would not have been out of place. This is a very pretty piece, and a very imaginative treatment. I like the break that comes in just before 3, and think it is a bit overdue. I’d like to hear the break begin earlier in the piece. The strings really work very well here—they are just right. I could imagine a recorder piping in here, but it’s probably nicer with the less cute treatment you have here.

The subtlety in the percussion fits the piece very well. The little cymbal extro is perhaps less effective than a layered guitar fade out might be.

Wonderful mix! Great treatment.

Nice. The harmonies work very well, and it has a gentle, floaty quality that’s different from most other mixes on this site.

Just fab.
I heard another mix recently that had the accent on the third beat that changed to the second after or in a chorus section and disturbed the backbeat flow. Thats what happens here for me.

Its by no way a critism as it a great piece.

Love it

Strangely enough, this reminds me of a Police tune I’ve never heard. And I like the Police.
(Uh…not to be confused with Five-Oh..LOL!)

Very cool. I love the sounds especially the guitars. The vocal placement makes this song sound so fresh.

People have commented on what this sounds like already but to me it reminds me of This Mortal Coil. I like this very, very much. : )

Even though I am not a big fan of Pachabel’s Cannon, I really enjoy this track. Nice work.

Yeah Im late, just over at the CG website looking at the new CD and saw this track in the listing, just had to come and listen. Very very nice it is too. Vocal harmonies are very well done. I think you may listen to alot of my favourite artists. Congrats on being included in the CD—
