    I don’t care for this song at all. His voice sounds VERY different. Not excited at ALL about this project based on this song.

    On another note, I don’t get the styling or the hair either. He’s trying to mix his Embrya & Maxwell’s Hang Suite together with the ‘blacksummer’s night’ days looks.

    This is a total miss.

      He’s approaching 50 years old. Of course his voice won’t be the same as it was 25 years ago. He still sounds good! I happen to enjoy the song and looking forward to his tour.

    Man…I love his early stuff but this song is not it! Looking forward to the live show for sure!
