Or just have a quick listen to any orchestra concert on Youtube and match the sub-sections of the strings panning to what sounds matched. :P

Hi Kevin,

beautiful voice as always. I agree with Jonathan that the intro is too long. And there's some silence at the end of every musical line, because the orchestral hits and voice have nearly the same timing. Maybe find something to subtle fill the gaps.
Kind regards,

Jos van de Gruiter

A passionless depressing dirge that was painful to listen to. Even more handicapped by the dull production which injected absolutely no progressive dynamics into what should have been an emotional journey from start to finish.

Everyone else is being faux polite and faux tactful. I tell it like it is. It's awful.

After I read these comments, I went back and listened again, to see if I missed something. I still really dig the bass track. I think the recording is pretty lo-fi, but I'm guessing that this is yet another mp3 lo bit-rate thing. I also still hear a lot of junk in the vocal track -- a weird warble and grungy quality.

I can't say it's a bad song. A bit repetitive, yes. It reminds me of a Pulp song from back when, can't recall which record. I recognize that Omni patch -- "Cathedral Strings," right? I use that one a lot, too 8-)
