    Wow, I expected something good because I really love every single song on ‘Mirrors’, but this is transcendently beautiful. The gentle strokes over the guitar, the mesmerizing vocals, very dream-like, surreal. It starts gently whispering but slowly rolls into a really vibrant song. Transcendently beautiful. ‘Sleepy Eyes’ is the song that comes mind, and that happens to be one of my favourites.

    I have not seen Days of Heaven in years, but I remember it for the fact that every single shot in that film was incredibly beautiful. I believe they filmed the entire movie in the ‘magic hour’ during sunset. I can understand how that could have inspired this song. Terrence Malick is one of the most profound writer/directors of cinema. I guess a revisit of his repertoire is a good way to kill the time between now and the 21st of January.

    Once again, borrowing a lot from Fleetwood Mac. This time sounds a lot like Lindsey Buckingham’s picking style.
    Great band.

    Gorgeous little number. Love John’s lyrics. Reminds me of the mood evoked by Voice Memo, another stellar song from these guys. Can not wait to finally hear the rest of this long anticipated sophomore release.
