A prime of example of true musicianship, the introduction of this song really speaks 'less is more' and effortlessly delivers. Perfectly structured, never a dull moment, and the beauty of it all is the originality of this music. The harmonies are superb, and the entrance of the second verse is just absolutely brilliant!

The first time I heard this track, it was the profile song on someone's MySpace, and it immediately caught my attention. Each instrument's role in this piece works beautifully melodically and rhythmically, and mind you it is indeed very clever song writing as well, structurally and thematically. Some parts remind me of an epic 70s sci-fi movie, yet with the chorus I feel as if I'm standing right beneath the sun and it's magical rays are making me all nice and warm. So many different vibes are produced in this song, but it all gels together perfectly. Erling Gronhaug in my opinion is a brililiant and prolific song writer. It easily deserves 5 stars.
