I saw the video today....... kind of disappointed. They try too hard to sound like Styx and end up sounding like bad tribute band. How many Styx songs can you ripoff in one song??? Just wish it could have been a little more original. DDY does sound good. The man can still sing! Although I can’t really put this all on DDY, it is a Peterik project and not a true DDY song.

I love the song, I knew the video would be low production as are all the Frontiers videos, I don't care about the video though. The song will be on Dennis' album as well, he has stated that. I think this is just as good as any song on Styx "The Mission" and that is not a knock towards "The Mission"

DDY doesnt sound that great. He almost seems short of breath. Maybe its the recording his voice didnt sound near as powerful.

Very good Sunday song

Interesting. It sounds like someone took PoE, Best of Times, I Believe in You, and tiny tiny bits of GI and CSA and some generic 1980s sounds and threw it in a blender. I like most of the song but it does sound a bit too "processed" (I don't know if that's the right word) for someone who likes Dennis’ songs on Styx II, Equinox, GI and PoE. Loved the 100 Years from Now album and this seems one notch below that. But, for a 72 year old, all in all, its not bad.

Also, anyone know what Tian Tian means?

I liked the song, production was a little generic, but overall good

I forgot to ask...Is this on an upcoming World Stage cd? I imagine Dennis will have it too on his release?
