This track was more a "mood" than an actual song. It's constructed around several individual guitar-pieces that Mikkel played around with after having purchased his beloved Applause 12-string accoustic guitar - and that's why the song in a way lacks a proper chorus-piece. The first bandmember to hear the song was Morten Hansen and that is apparent when listening to his work. It was a little taster of what was to spawn from his work the following years. Heavy, tight and melodic. For technical buffs, try to compare the speed of the track at the beginning with that at the end... they don't compare!
Michael: This song is probably the second best on the whole tape - I've always had a weakness for The Hand! There's one moment in the very long instrumental intro, at 0:58 minutes, where all the instruments just seem to hang together and create some magic kind of sound. Really, nice song from Mikkel.
Mikkel: One of my favourites from the Skytape. A really great mood-song performed by a gang of hopeful musicians, who really mean what they’re doing. The solo is good and the bass-line makes me think of McCartney, simple but strong. I do miss a chorus, though...
