Hmm, I'm not blown away by this so far. It seems to be very much treading old ground. I don't think the call-backs to the robotic "yyeeeaah" from "Darktown Riot" and "Marijuana, Assassin of Youth" help in this regard!

I like the first two minutes, has a kind of atmosphere about it which was interesting but then IMO it completely loses that. Anyone else think the saxophone bit near the end was just noise? Still looking forward to the album though! smiley

Sorry, I have to say I'm not keen. Hopefully I'll like some more of the album but will be listening before I get it. Sadly Hackett is no longer an auto buy for me.

Sounds great to my ears! I think the sax bridge from the first part of the song into the heavy section is incredibly effective. Personally I like the occasional echo of past signature sounds. More musical ideas at play in this one song than in most people's whole albums, IMHO.

Done with a guitar. No voice involved. I know, incredible, isn't it?

From first listen, sounds like it might be a step up from Wolflight (the album), but first impressions can be biased. We'll see.........

I quite like the track but tend to agree with you, especially about the saxophone bit. Iíll certainly get the album when it comes out.

I finally got my audio fixed!

Anyways, I enjoyed the song quite a bit. I especially liked the dark atmosphere in the beginning.

I like it. Rather familiar sounding in some of its Hackett stylings but new nonetheless. The first section could have actually been a separate song from the rest.
