I have to admit, shamefully, that I have never reviewed msl before, and I am happy that I have today.

I found that this track took quite a while to get into a change at the beginning, but once it did, it really took me for a ride, the drastic melody changes didn't sound out of place and lept me listening, although I found the tracks meat and potatoes to be a little short compared to how long the intro was, but overall the recording was great and had some fun production.

I especially liked the change somewhere in the middle where it almost sounded like it came out of nowhere and carried me further along with the song, which out of fear of being boring with this style of music, almost needs to be done to maintain the listeners interest, and msl did a fabulous job of maintaining my interest.

I especially like the choir in the second phrase of the inrto, I felt it added to the mystery and wonder for what was to come. It has an interesting melody throughout, the harmonies are done in fitting measure, in other words, great choir.

The drum production is very easy on the ears, although I would not have ridden on the cymbal when the drums first kicked in, but that's me, and it does sound fine. Nice programming and use of electronic elements. This was a pleasure to listen to.   

I am pleased ot say, I like it!!!!
