i’m really digging this. great arrangement, great backing mix, and i love the way you use kristen’s vocal track here, to play off panu’s pella, but also using it sparingly for dynamic effect, and playing up the power of her delivery. also like the way you reverbed her vox up. guitars and beats fit this perfectly for the style. just a great duet, very original, and very much on point.

whew! doing this like a band with 2 vocalists is perfect. if it didn’t get you to think, kristen’s enigmatic poetry gets you right back on track quick. the guitar parts couldn’t be better. thanks very much. p

Love the message RT & Panu.
I once heard that it would have been cheaper (and much more effective long term) to drop wads of greenbacks on the Middle East rather than cluster bombs. Win the hearts and minds of the locals and those dicks full of hatred could have been cursing to themselves.
But still more death. Why?

This is fantastic!
Captures the mood of many desperate questions. Great work on the vox parts.

I LOVE the tone on the bass and the guitars! Great song, and very good mix of vocals.

Ahh yes. Sorry I missed this one, because it proves everyone wrong (including myself) who have ever suggested that you cram too many ideas into each track - because this has exactly as many ideas as it needs and no more.

And that’s a skill and a half, my good man.
