Mr Starkie:

Great work. The lyrics work great in the song you have created, the slightly dark descending melodies especially, and those lovely harmonies. It's interesting how STC will have an idea in his head where the song should go and the points he makes are very considered. It is always tricky to try to get into someone else's head. I have done a bunch of commisions myself and that is always the big part to break thru!

Mr Walker:

Very different. I like the shuffle feel to the strumming. I feel that this version would benefit from more of an arrangement. It is very simple as stands and I veered off from listening towards the end. Some instrumental breaks perhaps, but that would risk either becoming too long or having to edit down the lyrics

STC

A very evocative set of lyrics. No wonder a few people have latched onto it! Great work and I hope something comes of them
