Sally Warmington I am intrigued to get another glimpse into Peter's project about brain injury that we heard about in Road to Joy. I also love the bright, uplifting feel of this song and its contribution to the theme of the album - that we are all a part of everything here on this precious planet. The artwork is so much a part of the track and very beautiful - thank you!

New York State Of Mind I will say this: Whenever Peter finally announces the full format and tracklist of the i/o album --whether it's a 2-disc set featuring both bright and dark mixes, or a streamlined selection-- I want to go on record and say I find the bright-side mixes the most appealing. The instrumentation seems the liveliest, and the melodies come through most clearly. I almost always favor the bright-side mixes.

rjhatcher I’m very much looking forward to an edgier and less-polished Dark-side Mix later this month. Hopefully, like the live version, there’s a longer pause between the “falling from the head” lyric, which is overwhelmingly beautiful, and the groove/outro afterwards, too ❤️🌕 Favorite track: Olive Tree (Bright-Side Mix).
