Featured Review

If you like esoteric Pink Floyd and Muse and pre-pop Genesis, this song may be up your alley. The rhythms drive with stereo swirling force a seriously moody backdrop behind a melodic vocal performance. Lead vocals sing intelligent lyrics in a style like Kate Bush while the backing vox kick in to fill the panorama.

There is a classic heavy metal guitar bridge that bodes of an era gone by, clean and not feeling too out of place, also devoid of strong melody, nobody's gonna be humming along to that, although not inconceivable for the it's not easy line.

The relative pop shortness of the song gives it an album cut feel that a bigger story is forthcoming. Intriguing....

Lyrics

Shadow Lamenta

Didn’t you feel it baby
Didn’t you want it all along
Didn’t you feel it baby
Didn’t we have it going on

It’s that easy, It’s that easy

All that you stirred in me
Came to disturb me
It’s not that easy

All the wildsong
And the nights long
And the rolling on and on

All the bleeding
And the needing
Had me moving on and on

Didn’t you feel it baby
Didn’t you want it all along
Didn’t you feel it baby (didn’t you feel…)
Didn’t we have it going on (didn’t you feel…)

All that you moved in me
Came to confuse me
It's not that easy

All the haunting
And the wanting
Had me moving on and on
