Description

Krystsal wrote the words and sang like an Angel, I wrote the music.

The drums are a bit naff! but I did a lot of messing about with them to try to get away with it.

So, Hit me with your rhythm sticks. Please.

A shout out to brother Steve, for his ears and help.
Thanks K, for sending this lyric to me and allowing me attempt this tune and for all your help and advice.

Lyrics
our backs are bent
emotions spent
i pray the lord my soul to take
praying for dreams
the dreams that lead
i keep reaching

i can't bear another lonely eve
don't you see my heart upon my sleeve
i can't bear another lonely eve
from this arrow a thousand colors bleed

brilliant!
Lush and lovely. Love everything about it. Even the drums, which sound absolutely fine to me. Reminds me slightly of Trent Reznor's recent stuff. Total cool!

Cannot miss with this team, I says to myself. I was right. My kinda thing ... if I had the imagination to pull it off ... and if I could sing like K.I.S. hahaha. Love the patented tokai vibe and the way K caresses this to perfection. A definite keeper. This could have gone on for another few minutes, but I guess I can just hit the button again. Beauty.

Really like this ... I would buy this ... vocals are so interesting. What effects are on the vox? ... the end almost warbles, cuts off and helps give it that eastern vocal quality ... almost quarter notes? The music is superb!! ... only nit and it's a subjective thing, is I would have loved to hear the bass do a slide up the neck or something just to give the bass a bit more excitement here and there but not breaking up that cool hypnotic groove ... that Tony Levin thing.
Great tune!

Great Collaboration
Everything's good about this song. From the bass line to the vocals and effects. Doesn't have the feel of a 'collaboration' at all, could be a group working together for years.

To me this sounds like Massive Attack minus the dark pull. Congratulation to both of you, tokai for an excellent job in balancing your multiple layers of tasteful synth/guitar goodness and KISMET (Krystsal, yes?) for expanding your range with every song. Impressive.

Serious consideration
That gal's got a thang going on! Supportive production work from the late 80's LA playbook, still sounds great. The brittle guitar seems to make the thing work, like pivot of something from long ago, yet as current as a drip of perspiration. Groove on!

and then some...
What they said plus a whole lot more. One doesn't often find so many interesting lines in the mix of just one song. I found this to be completely interesting and conceptually compelling. I really love the PULL of the strings particularly, plus all that echoy stuff that is generally kind of mesmerizing and dreamy. I am always happy when I learn something new, and this production was a good teacher for me. thank you.

Truly Excellent
I love everything about this. From the concept, to the arrangement, instrumentation, and top notch vocal performance. You really hit a sweet sweet spot with the overall space and timbre of the piece. The contrast of minor harmonies and crisp elements with the lush ambience and reverbs is tasty!

I listened through both mono and stereo speakers. The percussion sounds just fine to me. I did notice there are a lot of panned voices. If you are routing multiple tracks, some panned, through a compressor (or routing a single track through more than one signaling path prior to output) that might be creating enough phase interference to register on a meter. If it's there, my ears aren't sensitive enough to pick it out.

Thanks for calling my attention to this - I hate to think it might have slipped by! Really delicious!
