wonderful production job - I really enjoyed the restrained use of beats
and there's some cracking string lines.

Congrats on finding the space bar key!
Once again a very fine track here. Very powerful and nicely produced.
I love what you're doing with the sustained vocals here... granulating
them... or cutting them up to extend them a bit... reminds me of the
effect they used in the Matrix for when Neo takes the red pill. Once
again you've managed to keep the entire song very interesting and
engaging, even though you're only using the one chord progression

My only critizisms would be that it could use a little bit more in the way
of bass... the only thing I can really hear in the guttral region is the
kick drum, but the song does still work as it is. Also, much of this
song seems to be panned in the center. Only background/secondary
sounds seem to have variation in the L/R space... and since they're not
what you're paying most attention to, this mix sounds considerably
smaller/thinner than many of your other songs (Purpleliquidflower
being the widest of them all so far). I mean I can hear that its there,
the guitars are spaced... theres a fair bit of reverb/delay being used
etc... but the majority of the drums, strings and vocals are panned
dead center.

Eitherway, fantastic job again, I've actually started my Atonalis inspired
song already... but I reckon it'll be a while before it gets finished

the space bar key found me......
..... i was just sittin' there one day, and it said....."hello, i'm a space bar key" ..... being taken by it's usefullness and grace, i firmly struck it and said....." good to meet 'ya!" ........ i put the friggin' name in as i usually do, but MJ automatically put the spaces in...... weird. thanks for the words, they are always welcome........ well techically there is a little more than one progression...... but yeah, i didn't give enough consideration to the stereo field...... that should probably change......i've just been trying to write and arrange very quickly....... so i suppose something is gonna get neglected....... thanks again man...... and i always look forward to hearing your tracks..........

too! Another
Apparently with thunder and lightning too! Another good one Shawn. The vocals almost hint at the "Faust" movements... but with a Jean Michel Jarre "Zoolook" sorta treatment. Excellent!

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Aww Man... - !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now THAT! was good...

Thanks to you Shawn, I am one step closer to less oddly arranged...

AMAZING!!! - And, very nice to hear your wonderful singing voice.

I am purposefully keeping my words to a minimum about this so as to
not diminish what my body tells me about it...


P.S. I can't believe that I get to almost know you....

Great vocals, yeah... everything else was top notch, as usual.
Someone needs to make an abstract, sci fi noir thriller based on
your tunes.... a totally atonlais inspired wash of intense imagery.

Powerful, driving, intelligent, thought-provoking, evocative
Wonderful expansiveness, inventiveness (especially the gargling and use
of close-far effects). The middle part (right before the space and lyrics
changes) could have used mode melodic use of the synth strings, a sort
of melodramatic film score moment (think Batman Begins), in my ears,
becuz this section was the only one that seemed a little dull and out of
balance for me. But I really dug this, could be my favorite so far.
Powerful, driving, intelligent, thought-provoking, evocative.
