I've had this Promo for 4 days now, and I still can't make my mind up about it.
It's by Loreena, so of course I find it interesting... BUT if I was Joe Public listening to this on the radio, it would probably wash straight over me, and I would never care If I ever heard it again..
All the SAF mixes are similar, though the "Eclectic" mix with the clarinet gives a nice soulful feel..
Basically the drums are identical to the album, but are brought right to the top of the mix, giving it a radically different feel. add some electronic noodlings, and it has the effect of doubling the beats per minute quota..Everything else, ie Hurdy gurdy etc has been buried down into the mix
It sounds like Loreena herself played with this track in the studio as well, as there is a nice "calling" multitracked vocal chorus... but this again could be very skilfull editing of the master tapes..
The whole thing now has the gentle beats feel of a mellow trance track.. which is not a bad thing in itself... but this is almost as if Loreena doesn't know which market to aim at..
I'm guessing that the feedback to this promo has been similar to my own observations, hence the loud sound of silence from Quinlan Road.. but I would love to be proved wrong..
This release IMHO is one for Fans only..
