Description
This song started a while back I think about August time when I decided I wanted to build on this song that I had written. I wrote the song a few years back and at the time was listening to some heavier stuff (Metallica etc) and it kind of influenced me a little.

All the guys have as usual been superb and its been great working with Freddy and Sig for the first time. Mike and Yves have been very supportive and hopefully we can get some more together sometime.

Hope you enjoy the collab

Lyrics
The End (Train Home)

Intro : Em/C, Em/B, Em5 x2 (Picked)
Verse 1
I know the worlds not on fire
But I've seen the flames
Give me all the reasons
This could be the end
Bridge : G, E x2, B, A, B
Chorus : D, A, E
I'll take the train to go home
Get lost in the desert with no place to go
I'm aboard don't know where I'm going
I'm close to the edge
Verse 2
I'm on my wagon
Going to who knows where
Deep down in the underground
People dream of the end

midrange
The start of this track sounds very good. But then your vocal has far too much midrange when it comes in. Could be a monitor issue, but my equipment is pretty decent. I can't quite make out what is clashing with the vocals. First harmonic of the bass? Otherwise a good arrangement.

I am not the strongest vocalist in the world, half decent at a push, so there probably are vocal issues, but thanks for the feedback and dropping by cheers
Alannah said 2091 days ago (January 28th, 2012)
Nice work ....
.. all around .. however I would have liked to have had the vocal track a little louder ... it is buried quite deep in the mix and is barely audible ! From what I could hear .. it sounded great ... nice bari-tone !

Grabbed from the start by Sig's tasty riffing. I like your voice. Deep and resonant! I love the way the song picks up after the first verse. Great arrangement. Nice organ parts from Yves. Excellent drumming. In the pocket and full of dynamics. Killer mix and production. This rocks.

Lots to like about this, Neil. Great mix, stellar guitar work (both electric and acoustic) and Yves and Freddy do a great job (as always). I had to listen to it a couple of times to come to terms with the vocals, though. They are good but seem to be a bit too effected (EQ in the mids?) for my taste. But that was probably what you were looking for - so what do I know :-). Take care, Peter.

TvRicky said 2089 days ago (January 29th, 2012)
Deep down in the underground!
Lazy Guitar vocals very unique and raspy..Guitar kicks sounds of mystery, Drummer busy and flavored..Bass holding it down..Guitar takes us in a new direction.. Vocals magically merge with bass and guitar plot point hits again. Great storytelling with the Guitar and Bass taking us to the curtain. Marvelous Performance and Production.

The end
What can I say? Very very jealous! I had to double check that this was one of yours Neil! Wouldn't sound at all out of place among a Metallica playlist at all and a really kick ass tune! I hear what the other guys are saying about the vocal mix but I'm still taken aback by the notion that it's you as it's so different from what I'd expect from you. But I love it. If you pardon me, I'll not go through the list of musicians appearing on this, other than to say, Sigmund I was going to play a little guitar this evening but after hearing that I really can't bring myself to do it. You put us all to shame. Excellent work by all and a definite download - I think every macjammer should be made to download this and listen to it at least seven times tomorrow! Will you guys be getting together to do more of this?

You are too kind! Ref the vocal I'm not a comfortable vocalist but I do the best with what I have a 5 out of 10 possibly at best, I considered other vocalists for this but this is a song that I am quietly proud of and I really wanted the vocal on it good or average! All the guys were superb and I will go through them, Mike has been with me on 3 songs now and is a terrific guitarist never mind a bassist, Yves is just so much fun to work with, super quick and talented with everything he does and for the first time I got to work with Freddy and Sig and those 2 don't just bring musical quality their ears for mix and production are second to none, the amount of work Freddy put in even before he laid a drum track was unbelieveable and Sig produced a great mix. I had 5 goes at the mix and couldn't quite get it to the standard but working with guys is great for me as I can learn so much. Sorry to ramble! Glad you enjoyed the tune and I certainly hope there will be more sometime

Great shift into the heavy section and splendid guitar slinging (that Sigmund bloke can play can't he?)

Doom laden vocals that work really well in the context of this song and nice subtle instrumental touches.
