A solo nylon string, classicly inspired, guitar composition. Peaceful, natural, and simple. When recording this in my studio in May, the birds outside were very talkative so I let them be in the song. They even start it off. This was written to be the intro of the not so quiet and simple, Padded Cell.
A leap from the simplicity of track 1 to a many-layered guitorchestra with high visceral energy. It starts off mild and quickly surprises you and takes off soaring through the universe and in the end gently returns you home. A bit of a ride, it's crazy...
Blends of nylon and steel-stringed guitar, mixed with just the right amount of mandoline. Plenty of finger pickin' mixed with flatpicked leads.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. This tune is a tasty blend of acoustic jangling arpeggiated chords and a sweet-toned electric guitar melody. Great driving music that will take you on a new adventure and carry you off into the sunset.
A rock instrumental most likely influenced by Rush. 3/4 time and some changing rhythms keep it interesting and some of the guitar riffs echo the eclectic phrasings of Lifeson.
Acoustic guitars reminiscent of Yes, Zeppelin and Rush blended with electrics in the style of The Allman Brothers and Black Crowes. Groovin bass and drums rhythms that give a vibe of Classic Prog Rock meets Southern Jam.
There's an echo of the 80s in this one. Acoustic and electric guitars with a touch of mandoline for effect. Sometimes you just have to let go of things.
Guitar and drums, that's it, just an acoustic guitar and drums. Chill yourself off to sleep, sweet dreams.
One of only two tunes on the album with lyrics. Vinnie Leddick joins in and lends his wonderful voice to this progressive somewhat thought provoking tune. It starts of low and mellow and ends in high energy.
