Description
I wrote this in an attempt to enter the doomsday challenge, but I missed out. instead of adding vocal samples I added guitars. For a change! Not sure the two quite fit in places.

Nice "analogue" sounding recording with great use of space. Quality, atmospheric piece. The guitars work well. Thanks, Peter.

cool photo
howdy, Brother - found myself coasting by your neighborhood, and dropped in for an earful. this drips with MOOD, and it's a Good Mood.
nicely thought out and well put together. sweet percussion, terrific throbs of bass, and the synth is spectacular. guitar cries so beautifully - love the whole sustained feel of it all. liked the 2:37 to 2:58 section particularly. thanks for reminding me what you do and how you do it - really enjoyed this piece.

This
"thing" took me to a virtual and exotic place, somewhere between Heaven and Hell. Your guitar plaintively beckons and promises, perhaps, some kind of redemption for someone who can imagine paradise but has trouble finding it. Special. Thank you.

Damp Journey
Atmosphere and trappings yet no melodic invention? No conversation. Ah, yes, another empty wet place. If the mix and production is what it's all about, the thing sounds great!

Steve, this sounds really good! Tasteful and patient movement from start to finish. of course the guitar sounds great, Gilmour-ish in places. The keen percussion and subtle but effective bass really drive this nicely. Killer mix too! Love it!

The tokai sound
lives and breathes. It breathes mood and atmosphere. Your own thing, and it's as cool as cool can be. You have the dis and the dat working together in peace, love, and harmomy.

Very nice Steve!
Lovely tone on the lead, and if the mix can sound this good on my iPad, I look forward to cranking up the Mac for a serious listen.
A very enjoyable listen!
Thanks,
Neil

Excellent track
the guitars sound good to me - and the bed is super juicy. Tulum is one of my favorite places on earth. I closed my eyes and put myself on that great horseshoe beach. Thanks!

Back for another listen ... and a comment this time. I enjoyed this the first time but slipped in a listen while working. I like the hypnotic trance like groove underneath it all .... guitars are a pleasure to listen too ... warm ... nicely mixed.

laid back tension
love the mixture of ambient and tense guitar. Sounded a bit Pink Floydy at times - and that is no bad thing!! I will try and catch up with some of your earlier stuff too. Cool...
