There are very few multi-instrumentalists who could stand out from the crowd, but Foresteater is definitely one of them.
The alter-ego of Mikey Pro, Foresteater has clearly thought long and hard about arrangement and this reviewer would love to be a fly on the wall when he is composing and arranging music.
Very well written, this song could easily slot in amongst the playlist of many a radio station and not be a jar to the listener. This is an ear-worm that will linger for days. Gritty guitars and a strong rhythm section are a rock solid base for the often ethereal vocal talent on display. Nothing is lost in the mix, there's a very good use of controlled feedback in the latter half of the song, which I'm sure is difficult to achieve, especially as Mikey is inspired late into the night (or early into the morning!).
