Lyrics
POMS (Promise of Minds) Tes, July 26

like blind jesters that climb uphill
I feel I'm choking for breath
(so much I can't complete my mission)

worn shadows that bleed me drained
(they're draining me)

I know they're not alive
(I've seen their disguise, seen thru their disquise)

so they leave me.

do do do

all the changes I've come to receive
they are all fading out, all fading out

choices made from memories
are leaking, seething
clawing like a whisper against the thunder
living chaos
but I'm the type that rebounds

a promise of minds

(promises of minds)
now here they come in nudity
cooperate efficiently
I hide under a guilder flume
but still my brain, they prostitute

I may as well retire from living

I watch from my window sill
(that's all i can do)
depressive and spoiled by they ancient wills
nobody to rescue me
(but what if they did?)
i follow
the range that they set just for me

not feeling so great
(changing my life to a fever)

i make myself blind
now i feel realigned
in the light

finally my life is filled...

Big, heavy groove...I really enjoy this dark, rich feel. Guitar and sax really contrast nicely. Of course Sammy is always ...well, Sammy...which is a good thing!

Nice mix ... that bottom is nice and there ... Like the reverby sax and great guitar! Very strange melody changes musically and vocally especially in the middle ... Sammy's perfect for it. The keys and the sax really work nicely together... what else can I say? ... it's a well crafted and well performed tune.

Love the silky smooth Rnb vibe. Great vocs/harmonies and Andy's sax is sweet icing on the cake. Bass is compelling, and some nice guitar riffing.

Great collaboration
49 tracks wow, you wouldn't know at first listen-that's impressive. The vocals are beautiful, and I love the effects and harmonies on them. Can't forget the keyboards (my favorite Ktb) The sax accents are delicious and moody with a touch of sexy. The guitars with the minimalistic approach are well done and great sounding. Overall the mix is awesome on my setup. Can't say enough!

Thanks for sharing :) keep up the great work~

By eye
for so many track its sounds very clear with lots of room and space, what a trip on the headphones, the bass just hits you in the back of the head, Man ,Sammy ,KTB are some of the best here and with you at the helm what a band!
All I can say is thanks for the download!

Mind meld
You guys have created something unique here. At the risk of sounding cliche ... amazing. It seemed like a long time in coming, but definitely worth the wait. Everyone is in fine form +. Production sounds fantastic.

Sorry about the one, Steve. I hope that situation goes away soon.

thx to all
goegeous Steve. know what i like best? how the music inspired the lyrics. as i listened back when you first sent it to me, i felt free to wax whatever i was feeling as i wrote them. luv when music brings that out of me. I think i've said repeatedly that i liked Andy best when he's wild, but i have to rethink that after the smoothness on this trk. ktb was a sweet surprise. i recall you mentioning asking him, but i didn't know what became of it.

so when's the next?

I'd say your middle eye is still massively centered :-) The bass just punches through and keeps it all grounded. Andy's sax is a welcome addition to the Tokai sound arsenal. Sammy just blows my mind. The phrasing and verve he puts into his voice are stunning.

also, thought your collar with Billy K was awesome. Hope your ear mends soon. Your music was made for stereo!

Eyeballing
Really nice sax. Extremely well placed, great effects. I dig how forward the percussion is too, gives the tracks a cool texture. Vocal lines seems a bit random at times, which made me look at the lyrics more carefully. Poetry in motion. The vocals work best, for me, when they lean toward David Crosby-like harmonies, the more dense the better. Kind of amazing mix using just your eyes!

Frabjous
A remarkable mix of tracks that still sounds so spacious. The percussion really holds it together (as it should), and everything else seems like it always belonged there. Relaxed and intense all at the same time, like a John Martyn song.

proggy goodness
Sounds like a collab between Yes, King Crimson and King Dubby. And that is not a bad thing. Love that low end and the subdued guitar soloing. It teeters on the brink of tumbling into pretentious prog hell, but manages to pull back into tasteful complexity. Cool.

nice clear sound
enjoyed this very much - I am listeng through aurotone cubes [aka horror tones] which is the ultimate test they say as if it sounds good through these then it'll sound good through anything and it sounds fine to me.
