pljones:More rain - sounds more realistic, too. But very wide awake.
Lovely evocative piano and bells at the start. Definitely too up tempo to be hypnotic once the drums kick in. And too much variation also. A wonderfully constructed track however, with just the occasional minor quibble in the mix (the guitar solo is too loud and aggresive for the rest of the track). Most other months, this would be right up in the top ten.
Another very enjoyable entry, but one that wakes me up and makes me want to listen to it!
Really love that main melody part that starts it off and ends it. Pure gold. The other instrumentation comes in nicely. I especially like the compositional change when the drums drop out around 1:50. Beautiful. I thought the drums themselves were overly busy, and too dry in the mix for my taste.
Aaargh, top track, killer piano hook and great instrumentation. This gave me the most trouble this month, I liked it so much and yet there's just no way I would describe it as hypnotic. Extra special honourable mention, just no points, sorry!
