Description
If I ever get the damned album finished (Excalybr and other stories) this one is slated as the second song, between Convergence and Wasted, with precious little space in between them.

Lyrics
Nightmares

Your mind leaves your body and
You pick up the contraband
Somehow you try to fly
Venus is floating by
Yet no one seems to care
Shouldn't they even stare?
But they don't seem to notice that
You're here in your underwear

Chorus
Nightmares
Affairs
Bugbears
Are everywhere
Threadbare
Backstair
Do you dare
Deny, your nightmares?
Only in your dreams
Does luck (love in 3rd chorus)
Come in thirteens

The first is a dragon then
The jesters come dancing in
You're caught in crossfire of
Something from up above
Over the rainbow lies
Nothing but compromise
Unconsciously the truth comes through
Much more than you realize

Chorus

You're under the water now
Yet no one is asking how
The rooms all just disappear,
Can't see the end from here
Champagne and caviar
Notions go on so far
And sweat soaks the nightgown
As you wait for the morning star

Chorus

A few off-pitch acoustic guitar notes in there, plus the
high git strings are sounding a little tinny and stress
fatigued (too much bouncing?). Voice and harmonies are
pretty cool and nicely contoured but a little lazy, I think.
Imagine your are Boris Karloff or Vincent Price as you sing
it...just a little more emphasis. You've achieved full
spectrum sound and a good stereo spread. Sweet electric
guitar...but that too is a little stress fractured from
bouncing.

RS sincere thanks for the frank and honest feedback. It truly is appreciated. I
had been hoping for Max Ernst or Andre Breton references, but hey, I love
Karloff. As to the guitars, you are bang on, lotta bouncing. I hadn't been
aware of the stress phenomenon until you pointed it out and now it's all I can
hear in there. Short of a processor upgrade (wife'll have a fit if I spend more
money on this) is there a quick fix for this.? The final mix was still 13 tracks
and I lost count of how many guitars there were. (Probably explains the odd
clinker.)
Again, thanks pal.

Quick fix: import into Logic Express for a higher fidelity bounce. Other than
that, maybe a trip through Peak 4. Or maybe within GB check your
compression settings. Perhaps you've applied compression to both individual
tracks and to the global track. Too much compression can create a thin
degraded sound. Doubling tracks on key instruments can help to enrich the
sound. Perhaps others will have other suggestions.
