"Hollow points come through as the church organs can be heard once again. It feels like two different types of drone overlapping with other taps and it is somewhere between chill and sad. The doors of course continue to open as the notes (Which I still think are higher bass guitar notes) return as well. There are also sad strings- a cello perhaps?- and somehow both Becs and Yellow Dragon manage to create such great music on their own, but then also together as well. I like the concept behind this idea of having two artist showcase their own skills first and then linking them together. I wish more labels were doing this."
