Love the up strum acoustic guitars. The keys are hypnotic. Nice melody. Really nice vocals. Wonderful double tracking. Love the piano solos. I was almost all the way through before I realized this whole thing was built on a two chord vamp. Not an easy thing to do.

Two chords is right. I figured Christopher would do well with the space provided and to my ears he did very well :) Thanks for your time!

Wow... What an interesting departure for you Tom. This does nice things to my cluttered head. Ha ha...

beautiful acoustic guitar and equally beautiful vocal bro. And you were wise to include Christopher. He gives it an ethereal quality.

Simply lovely!

Be well my friend!

Missed this
Glad I found this. I was on vacation when you posted this. Has an Elliott Smith vibe to it, which is way cool. Like the dreamy vox. Piano added an interesting feel.

Really nice tune

mezmerizing
nice solo starting at 1:00. This is kind of an ethereal mix that is so soothing to listen to. ... I cannot understand the lyrics with all the other sounds going on...Are they important? If so, it might be nice to bring them forward in your mix. ... I'm pretty good on pitch: the guitars seem out of tune to my ears. That's something to check out if you ever remix or perform this again. ... I sure can hear more than two chords for this number. I wonder if you'd think about expanding the harmonic vocabulary. Five minutes of two chords is a little hard to take. (On the otherhand, Ravel was pretty successful for 17 minutes with his Bolero, but he DID soar at the end to some new territory.)

A 60's-70's vibe. Very calming. Like floating on a raft on a lake under beautiful blue skies with a warm summer breeze pushing you along. Great job.

Man this is just beautiful. Atmospheric and dreamlike. This would be a perfect closing shot on a classic album. Love that two chord riff that holds it all up. The instrumentation and mix are really strong and cohesive. Those vocals are perfect man.

Cuckoo Acoustic Cucoon?!
I love the world you put us in, great tune! Both the main pieces and hte backing "surreal magic" work so well together. In fact, it reminds me of the otherworldly setting of "Cuckoo Cucoon" from the last (great) Genesis album, "Lamb Lies Down on Broadway." But more modern-times indy, a touch of jazziness with those super-cool little closing piano and horn sections. All in all you've created a really wonderful, unfolding experience in this song. DL-ed!

Superb sounds!

Listening to this I forgot I was sitting on a freezing evening in mid-winter. Hypnotic and so retro it's in fashion! The Byrds maybe? Very clever use of minimal sounds, great effects in the ears - soaring strings competing with some radical jazz piano notes makes for a unique sonic experience.

Great work guys, DLd.

hi tom and chris. wow...this is beautiful. the intro reminds me of early joni (whom i love)...then you start singing (beautifully) and shades of CS&N drift through. wish you had posted your lyrics. the repeated riff running through keeps everything on track and never gets boring. chris's additions (especially the piano) flesh it out with just the right blend of 'surreal'...i love the the low bass notes.
