Description
I found this in relation to my last song which people commented on the lyrics being difficult to work out. At the time I wrote a couple of songs, which I left the lyrics open to interpretation, this is another of those!! Either that or just damn right weird. For you to decide. Anyway I hope you can enjoy it.

Lyrics
V1, Envelope Mind
Thoughts Like Butterflies
Quiet Storm
As The Bells Toll

C, Quick Shift
Floating Echoes
Rancid Evening
Wishing Well

V2, Marmalade Patterns
Voices Shallow
Armageddons Near
Soviet Blame

V3, Soul Searching
Violent Shadows
Steep Mountain
Collapsed Wing

Twisted, Twisted, Twisted, Twisted (to fade)

I think the lyrics are suitably dark and foreboding. They fit the melody and you deliver them well in your solid vocal. I like abstract lyrics like this. Leaves me room to interpret them as I hear them.

I like the overall character and balance of the mix. But the overall mix is quite soft. If you're interested I know a few easy mastering tricks you can do with Audacity to get a hotter mix.

Thankyou for stopping by and having a listen, glad you enjoyed. It was a rush mix, I recorded and posted the thing i 45 minutes so maybe that has something to do with it. Always looking to learn, is Audacity freeware?

i think the
Words are good. No need to be specific about anything. It could definately use some help with the volume though. Good job!

Neil, the words fit the tune. I like your voice .. the deepness of it also suites the darkness of the melody. . with a little better recording and volume the box could really shine. Good tune...
Cheers

I like the tone of the guitar and I think the vivid, haunting images in the lyrics work. The vocal is too far back in the mix for my tastes, given its resonance, but nevertheless a powerful song!

Neil, well done
Like the sort of dark feel to this. Vox has a deep, honest quality to it.

Coolness friend.

Definitely twisted
And that's a good thing. I love enigmatic lyrics and these are great. Reminds me of my college days when the band I was in did "White Room." Your lyrics leave a lot of room for interpretation and the moodiness of the lyrics helps fill some of that in. Nicely done.

Dark Acoustic
but very nice tune.
Timing is a bit shaky here and there.
But overall well performed.

interesting
and very bizarre in th lyric department ....your voice has a quality that I cannot put my finger on for a comparison .....which means it is probably highly original,,,the guitar is very good....a darkly mooded song ....good stuff.....

Bizarre is good for a change!! Original! Great word so many meanings, cheers

Your vocal
is quiet but the mood of the song is trippy and that kind of works. It reminds me a bit of Jim Morrison and The Doors.

Cool tune Neil. It kind of reminds ME of some the slow stuff that bands like Alice in Chains or Soundgarden would do, or even Metallica. It's got that grunge-ish style of chord progression. I like the simplicity of the arrangement, and your vocal track goes well with the song. Enjoyed!

Thanks very much for the kind comment, used to like a bit of Alice in Chains, and was a big Nirvana fan so maybe the grunge came from there, thanks for dropping in cheers

Very cool guitar riffs. I like the stream-of-consciousness lyrics. Strong vocals, like the attitude.

I enjoy your musical poetry and its presentation here.
The comments offered thus far are constructive, informative, and come from good places. I also wonder if, at the same time, this too is a perfect presentation of 'Twisted' as is. Good work!

Neil Love the feel of this. I agree the vox needs to be brought forward as your vocals are great along with the haunting lyrics.
