Nostalgia... begining Thomas The Tank....
on drugs!
Lots of interesting sounds, lots going on.
Its a bit mad isn't it!? Its uplifting.
Where did you get all those shouty voices from!??

I like the sad tune halfway through.

OO them bells are awesome, I like it very much from 7.30-til about 10, that bits really nice, and I really like your voice when the main ska type bit comes in. Its like electro ska! Awesome. I'm a huge ska fan, I wish I could do stuff like this! Maybe you could make a little ska influenced track for me to sing on one day...? Hehe.
Its like a mini opera! How long did this take to do?
Production quality is just fantastic.
You need to find someone to do a video for this. Like a short film. That'd be awesome!

Man there is a lot to digest in this  Love the narration....with the train whistle and train sounds coming at ya how great is that.!!!!!!!!  This is  ...well  .... I don't know how to describe it.  you have done something extra with your music and ideas.  Love the change thing with the Indians ........wow I have this cranked up it's too cool. the tribal drums and indian singing is very cool ,.....pushing the hell out of my spkrs too. lol
Ahh into the next phase (typing as I listen)  oooooh sounds like a movie soundtrack. oh changes again nice couple of changes into the wolves of chicago .......... and I thought my songs were long. lol I like your voice and the groove of this. The Wolves Of Chicago by itself is a fine song.....................ah into the other part ... skyliner  love the solo on this one.  ahh ha ha ha  "did you like that ..your gonna love this"   love this . like it the first time I  heard it.  like it now  tooo .

Thomas meets Ivor
Seriously wacky stuff Mr Fishman!
As much as anything, this says loads about what's going on inside your head (I bet a drink helps now and then)!

So, as far as a review is concerned - it's a musical journey patchwork.  Excellently put together, from the comic through almost Beatle-esque subtle complexity, to well executed Ska. 

Fab stuff!

Good clear recording; instruments well played; good blending of instrumental sounds; and all constructed in a thoughtful way.

I like it

This is awesome Fishy friend.  A hell of a lot of work but well worth it.

I look forward to your first full length symphony.

Well worth listening to all the way through, can't believe it is over 12 mins as the time flies by because there is so much variation.

hmm it's here!!
ya know, it peaks interest and initiates thought..  does give a
new almost renewed glamor to toolin cross country, no matter
what the form of transportation, on a journey to a specific goal.
arriving in style, to twist an already knotted phrase.  I have only
recently seen a beautiful example of this mind set when my aunt
and her boyfriend drove out to this part of the bible belt from
grants pass, oregan... and then was off again to return..  they had
a couple of kewl lil point and click digital cameras and a few
memory cards to fit... got some breath taking shots too..
see, a song that inspires someone to break out and fly away
in thought is without a doubt a good song... can't argue with it
and I ain't gonna..  if I argue with myself, very often I loose!

Quite a journey you've got here!!!

Firstly, love the samples and the way u have used them - they sound excellent.

Secondly, I love the fact that you did not feel constricted or confined by any kind of 'form' and you went for what is not a typical song - I'd say it's a rapsody rather than a song.

And I agree, the orchestration part is really superb - how do you do that? I'd like to know.
Wolfs of Chicaco is almost a classic! You could have been tighter on the vocals though.

Love it! High vote from me.

I see your point, but there's still problems with the amount of listens, some songs you listen more to get to the centre of them, but a brilliant song you might listen to once because it is all there for you in one playing...
And voting is a lot more convenient than downloading, I download a lot less than I vote for. I had an idea of a "bandAMP charts" thing based on the popularity over the time since they were posted. I can't remember too much about it, can't find the thread anymore...
But the voting is sad.

So I will vote for Crossin the States

It is a very cool concept, and you pulled it off beginning to end flawlessly. It really goes the distance (pun intended).

Cheers fishman.
