Trippy Sweet

The Tug Of Love Zingstone

At the start, I thought this was gonna be all droney and trippy, and I was thinking, "this is kinda just alright" then it took a turn going from major to minor and into a very classic pop progression and it grabbed my heart. This had the sweet kind of melancholy I might get from Bryan Ferry, and also with a measure of the Roxy Music interplay between melodic and experimental ensemble. One thing beyond the aforementioned artists though; the vocal arrangement here sounds like a dream. Good contrast between the lead and backups, good clean separation.
As much as I admire the arrangement and overall mix, I do wish we would have gotten more of a lead instrument in some areas. It's all ensemble, and, while I hear some very nice tones, I wished the guitar could've stepped forward and shown his stuff in some places.
