Seems I'm the first to congratulate you! Very very good! And my ears didn't bleed one bit! ;) I'm listening to them right this minute. Nice melody and nice voice you have. Excellent! I can imagine adding some kind of brass instrument, like a clarinet-like thingy (I suck at instrument theory). The language really gets new depth (or reaches new heights? :) when it's sung like this. Wow! I'm gonna have to do this too one day. I know Sally Caves have long REAL songs like this as well. Anyone else? (And the effect of having "Tii Raflep" followed by Breeders' "Cannonball" cannot be underestimated. :) Anyway, in summary I think it was great! They'll go into my regular Winamp playlist. Oh! I just remembered the Gamah hymn! That was you wasn't it? That one was just hilarious! I can still hear it in my head. Daniel Andreasson --
