Nice work boys! Johnny, let me give you a bit of advice…best to let the listeners decide the particular qualities of your work or the samples you use. I’d agree there is something “tribal” about this but someone else might go another way and then you have limited their vision.

The vox are great on this and I love the production and repetition. I might not have minded a few more added elements as the mix progressed, and I believe you have the music and tech skills to pull that off but maybe you wanted the minimal approach.

There is a “campiness,” for lack of a better word, in this that I like a lot. Nevertheless, as with most of Anchor’s work with which I have been acquainted, there is also a very serious spiritual message that I greatly appreciate.

Thanks for this one…I will resist calling you Johnny Socko…don’t know if you are old enough to remember a TV character with a homophonic name? :-)

Good points. I DO remember Johnny Socko. My moniker is a screwy reference to that. There IS a bit of camp, probably a bit of me and a bit of Anchor coming thru at different points. His vocals blew me away. I think your idea of letting the listener decide is a good point. I just like to yak about it.

every time i listen to this track, my initial impression is confirmed. it is singularly simple, melodic, unselfconsciously creative & , in short, one of the best things i’ve heard in years. you & anchor have done some great pieces, this is one of your best collaborations to date.

Well, call me remiss- I guess I’m going to have to get more familiar with your work; I’ve always had a fondness for Anchor’s contributions, and I love where you went with this!
