    Thanks for sharing.
    Sounds fine, well arranged, a nice chorus and melodic guitar- and key-solo's.
    The break could use a bit more "pepper" though (at least in my ears it sounds as if something is missing), while the return to the chorus ends somewhat abrupt.

    Good luck with the recording of the new album.

    Thanks for that! Not sure about pepper as I think it creates a contrast to the rest of the parts, but I'll let that sink in for a while...

    Yeah, I guess "pepper" isn't the I was "missing"; maybe a flute or sax

    Not to compare it with your music (although - it has Jobson on it ), but there are a couple of passages on UK's Danger Money I had the feeling: here's were the missing fourth member would have played something (especially in parts where Wetton is playing lead-bass).

    Ah, well, if it has some Jobson in it, that's because we do have a little inner Jobson in us, and that's a good thing! I hadn't thought of sax, that might be interesting though!

    We should get CDs (not CDR) some time today, so I shall update info then. You'll be able to get them from the band as well as other resellers.

    Sublime! Is the first album available in CD format as well?

    Yes Bill, we were getting our feet wet with the first album, so that was a CDR, but this is a replicated CD. Sounds like it makes a difference for you?

    LOL, you think?

    Yeah, I'm partial to CDs. I'll definitely get the new one when it comes out in that format. I was just checking if the first one was also available as a CD and I'd have gotten that one too if it were. Given it's not, I may consider download. Thanks for the info!

    Here is the purchase info on our page. If you live in Canada, we will have some available in Canada as soon as I can ship them so it would be shipped for the local postal rates.

    Great! Good that you ship them without jewel cases too, so European buyers don't have to pay $$$$ for shipping costs.

    Thanks for all the nice words about our music! I really enjoy being in this band. We live far apart but always agree when things sounds right at the end, even if the result being different from the intention of the original demo. We give and take opinions and suggestions with respect and an open mind. We have lots of material that didn't make it for the albums, and that's parts of why enjoy our band so much; we are creative.

    I received the CD last week and have had a couple of pleasant playing moments with it. I think all in all the music sounds more fully-developed than on the debut, which gives the compositions more room to progress in a easy way. Sometimes that creates an almost Pink Floyd-like atmosphere. The two vocal tracks were a surprise, but I got used to those quite soon. I believe one of the singers (John Eyre) is from the Gentle Giant-tribute A Reflection.

    Thank Rene, I'm glad you'e diggin it! John Eyre has been playing music in the UK for quite some time, but you're right, we first worked with him on the Gentle Giant tribute albums, so when Tomas wrote a song that needed a vocal, he turned once again to John. I love the flavor of John's voice and that British sound!
