    Thanks - there are some great musicians on this. I have worked with them all before, except the drummer, who is top notch.

    I just updated the mix, it wasn't quite final.

    I am singing in tenor range for this, I couldn't have done that a couple of years ago, this whole song would have been too high for me (especially the harmony vocals). My singing technique has definitely changed.

    A real smasher of a prog song George. Your lead vocals on this are superb and with all the backing and harmonies, just brilliant. The musicians on this are superb, the drummer adds a ton of energy and the guitar is very good indeed. Great keys work, loads of EP, Organ and synths on this, just like the prog tunes of old. I hear some more modern dream theatre vibe in this tune as well. Stella song, thanks for posting!

    Very excellent George! As said the performances from all those involved really shine on this song. An original aswell. I was humming along trying to keep in the vocal range you were in and failed miserably. Really well done mate!! Those harmonies were excellent aswell as your lead vocal.

    Thanks - my vocal range has got wider int he last couple of years with some vocal coaching and through doing a couple of online courses (Kevin Richard's "Breaking The Chains", and Robert Lunte's "The Four Pillars of Singing").

    Wow excellent! Real drums too! And topped off with your classy vox. Harkens back to lots of classic prog but without being derivative. Class work!
