Hey, another great sound. I am in awe of the new sounds. Words have eluded me again.
I think I will forget about finding the words to say how brilliant this song is and just sit back, put my headphones back on and listen again. Great work guys...I'm really looking to the next track :D

Thank you Lindsey!! We are having a blast creating this new music ;-)

Atlantica! This group easily made it straight into my memory! I have heard a few songs on FB ... yes! This is great. A wonderful teamwork on all ends. The results are songs like 'Down River'. I am positive I shall hear more of Atlantica!
Superb instrumentation, wonderful lyrics and vocals performing them. All such a treat to the ears!

Thank you Heinz! Song number three should be tickling your ears in a day or two.

This is a new mix and immediately those vocals are cutting through with more clarity - nicely mixed up Chris ! What you sing across that introduction is now crystal clear through my tiny apple pods:)

They now sit where they belong right up front of house letting us listen to the message within. Are the backing just Chris or Ron as well ?

Instruments are all played and placed pretty damned perfectly in this mix. The guitar solo section in the middle 8 is lush the climbs are just great especially that scale as the vocal drop backs in.

Ron your playing more the rthym guitar chord structures put me in mind of Andy Taylor ( Duran Duran ) he manages to get the same level of power flowing and uses similar effects especially on his solo works. That's meant as a compliment by the way !

A very cool sounding track I'm getting an underlying country feel from song construction but a real rock flow from the way the song has been played out.An interesting fusion which is probably not intended but for my ears sounds spot on.

I know you both want to get serious feedback/ critique - for me the only element that still sounds out is that 1st guitar solo - sounds real loud compared to the rest of the guitar parts throughout the track. The devil is often in the details and we all hear things differently but I'd be tempted to mix it back a little - great playing and tone just for my head space slightly to in your face within the mix..

Thank you Steven! Really pleased you like the new mix, we think it gives the song the impact it deserves! It's obviously a state secret as to who played what and who did what, lol, but I'll own up to all the vocals ;) and also that I keep telling Ron "ONE LOUDER!" 😜

Well you have two wicked kewl
tracks to start your LP. Down River is class...
The writing has substance that can be rare these days it seems. Vocal delivery was done to perfection! Base line was great, loved the piano sweet. And the lead guitar gives that extra power to enhance the song. Great listen and another that I will return to.

Jerry, thanks so much for listening and for those kind words, really appreciated by both of us 🙂

This is a cool one from Atlantica my brothers! I'm digging the lush production and this new direction. As always the guitars/keys work are excellent Ron as are the vocals and lyric Chris. From what I'm hearing with these latest two songs...you guys are onto something special. Keep it going!

Thanks Farrell! We've let loose a musical express train with this project - there's no stopping it!!

Nice job guys. Really enjoying this project band. Hope to see it keep going a long time. I have many things to say to you both but its not time to do so. Im onboard for sure. Its important online today to keep it about the music. Screw us! The music is what we are here for! So, thanks so!

Thanks Dace!! Talking through our music is what we all do best. Even when we don't have the words to say, we can feel them and say them in the notes.

Enjoying the pristine clarity of this song. Beautiful songwriting, arranging and mix. The hook in this tune is incredible, with a fantastic drum track. ( love that snare drum) !! Now we get to the personnel, Magical lyrics, vocals and keys from Chris. Mr. Dadey's solos soar at just the right time and place. Chris and Ron both combine to create some amazing music... Superb track, my friends.

Thank you Larry! The second track is always nervewracking, especially when you want to live up to the expectations of the first. We wanted to make everyone smile with this one!!
