I gave it an 8/10. May not listen to it much in future but it’s a nice addition to their catalogue and not a skipper. Nice to think they have the balls to put together something like this and release it. Good stuff

I gave it 10, based on how it made me feel listening to it.

I gave it a 5.

I think it's great that they have the ability to be experimental and I am very glad they are... The lyrics are very moving, but would have be more suited to a piano sound... My one challenge with it is that the orchestral sample sounds are a little on the cheap side, something which is odd considering they use kontakt and there are some amazing sampled orchestras now. The mastering sounds a little off with the orchestra sound needing a little more reverb... of course this is just a personal opinion.

The interesting thing with it is you can clearly hear the type of classical that Chris warms to, and it clearly matches with style and choice of instruments used in the most incredible thing.

Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Based on the ratings, if the Boys read this they would totally be safe in releasing an album with tracks like this....then they release Winner and people start to hating like crazy

5/10 it's a very interesting and complex song.

but not one that i would listen to very often. it doesn't really fit in with anything else.
except maybe the orchestral stuff, and soundtracks.
