there is so much personal troof in this, it’s presumptuous to even think about reviewing it. so i won’t. but it does make me think of what joni might have sounded like at 20 minus several hundred cartons of marbs, and it makes me want to write better music. whew!

thanks PM. The song is not actually too autobiographical at all, rather an amalgamation of experiences based upon friends, and a little of myself. It also has to do with single motherhood.

This was great M’dear. I had to chuckle however - it brought on a memory of my final school dance long ago…my date was a very cool (albeit moody) artistic girl…she caused a sensation that night because she had sewn a red letter “A” on the breast of her formal gown!
But I digress…this is a wonderful mix…has a real sense of good production and of course your touching vocals, both heartfelt and tongue-in-cheek at the same time. Loved it.

Decembers a tricky month to break up in. Too early then you could be seen as avoiding buying a present, too late and you may have brought the present already and lost the reciept and then be stuck with perhaps a pink hairdryer.

You have a very solid quality to this mix. I like it better when the New Order type drums are gone in the latter part but i might take this one and beat it with my commercial hammer. :-)

Ok, good enough. Everyone knows my love for innapropriate and irritating drums. As for breaking up, does it ruin the mood if I tell you I will be married now for three years in January? KT has a much crazier life than I do though…..

I like the flow of this and putting the story aside it is a very enjoyable trip through the senses.

I agree that the drums whilst still very attractive (must have been red ones!) are a little over the top but overall they do add to the feel of the piece.

Wow sometimes you scare me. There’s so much dark emotion in this piece. Beautiful, fragile, tormented…the song (not you). Great job.

“Mitzing Manhattans, Hawthorne, her erudite songstress warbling and New Order tubs into one smash pop opus, Kaer T shows the ccM whirl that not everything is comin up Shannon”.

Very original indeed! I like the lyrics, effects on the voice and pads, but agree with the rest that the drums could be more subtle.
