Nice job gang!

Love the vocal build on the outro!

Sounds great.

Nick

Nick,

Thanks so much - thrilled that you liked the tune!!!.

Yes, Steve came up with a super vocal arrangement, and it kind of gets bigger with every verse and leads onto the huge chorus at the coda.

Mike, Jay and John were absolutely fab too!

Cheers
Andy

I'm not sure I mentioned it, but our Mike (SnowdogUK) had put up a video on YouTube for this song quite a while back. It features his excellent guitar work set against a backdrop of images culled from the book/animations available.

Here's the link:

The song garnered a few positive reviews and here's some samples:

Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mike those solos were amazing man. and Steve sounded really good. I like your guys stuff. You should do a cover CD or your own stuff.Makes thses new bands look sick. Timdoog42

OMG!!!
another new awsome  song!!! love it.you should realy do a cd with your own stuff guys!!!congratulation again.***** :-))...

Love that chorus, particularly the first two chords. That solo after the first chorus is incredible as well, particularly the way it opens with the slamming tom. I like that you didn't just go into a second verse there. Most songwriters would have, but it would have lent the song a cliched feel. Instead the pleasant surprise really propels the song.
This is definitely a tune that gets better as ot goes along.

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!! RIP RJ!!! where can I get this song? Have you guys got an album? - Solmarz67

Thanks again Mike, John, Steve,J and Argie, you guys rocked it!

Cheers
Andy

SWEET! Love it! Yup....as mentioned, very Rush-ish. ;)

Thank you so much Bill, I'm thrilled you like the song. With Mike and Steve on board, the "Rush" like sound is very much in evidence :). J's keyboard tied it all together, as did Argie's mix.

Cheers
Andy

Hey Paulo,

Thanks so much for the kind words. The guys pretty much carried the tune.

I think you do a great job by being Paulo the keyboard wizard - you sure play a mean keyboard!!!

Cheers
Andy
