Description
This is a song for which I took inspiration from Aldous Huxley's book "A Brave New World".. Written in 1931... I hope you guys enjoy this one... Here is a brief excerpt from the book... I felt that it would set the mood................................................ "And if ever, by some unlucky chance, anything unpleasant should somehow happen, why, there's always soma to give you a holiday from the facts. And there's always soma to calm your anger, to reconcile you to your enemies, to make you patient and long-suffering. In the past you could only accomplish these things by making a great effort and after years of hard moral training. Now, you swallow two or three half-gramme tablets, and there you are. Anybody can be virtuous now. You can carry at least half your morality about in a bottle. Christianity without tears...That's what soma is". ... ........

Soma
Great sound, interesting chord changes, and a surprise half-way through. That transition is inspired. Top piece of art rock. Perfect artwork also.

Enjoyed this very much. I thought it was more a music bed than a completed track, tho. Just wondering if you would like me to try some B3 on it? If so, drop me a note from my profile page. Thanks for sharing this.
