Dramatic delivery for an original number full of angst

You Haven't Been Yourself

As usual, constructive criticism is welcome.

My delivery on this was inspired by some of Robert Lunte's more dramatic sounding work which he posts here, and also recently I have been listening to Ramin Karimloo and some other good musical theatre singers.

That was great, George. I could hear shades of Moody Blues in there, too. Really, you should be making an album.

And for all you guys here who "think" you are prog - if you're not commenting on this, then you just don't know prog.

There, that's my tough love for the day.

Bravo, George.

Many thanks Ron. Yes, I agree it is definitely prog. You can tell because it starts with cello solo which always a give-away.

Please listen again... I just updated the mix and chanegd the earlier link, I've now done the whole length of the song.

Link repeated here:

I have a few more things to do before it's finished, such as adding harmony to the choruses ("it's ringing in my brain now...").

It's hardly commercial material

Yes, it is, actually. Consider this me disagreeing with you on that.

Don't make me swim across the Pond and tell you crappy Aggie jokes until you relent and do something about this song.

Backstroke, I can last forever.

Although, one of my bosses sometimes flies to London, just for grins and giggles. Maybe I will have him give you a good "talking to." He can be persuasive.

Evidently, there aren't as many people here who appreciate prog as much as even I do and I'm more into Led Zep than prog.

I guess the mentions of James LaBrie and others like him is just lip service.

Then, again, I did get into some old school prog. I used to do a few songs by Jethro Tull.

This is very good. Really enjoyed it :) Lyrics, playing, tune, everything. I haven't really got any constructive criticism I'm afaid because it's way beyond what I can do and is very different in style to anything I play or listen to, but I figured I'd let you know I'm giving it a big thumbs up!:cool:
