The guitar solo is the fundamental glue to this song which adds the 
perfect opportunity for everybody to freely air guitar and reach that 
note anticipation roller coaster.
The rest of the album takes a more conventional free flowing jazz 
structure with added reach in Migden's vocals where he proves his vocal 
range, hitting peaking notes in 'Top of the mountain'.
The vintage snare drums acoustic piano throughout the album provide the 
authentic jazz sound with tinkering piano that provides an uplift from 
the smooth trance.
'We know what you have done' includes backing vocals from Goldie Reed, 
and opens with haunting ghoulish harmonies. This track is where I feel 
David migden & The Twisted roots come into their stride as the song is
dynamic whilst keeping a mysterious and eerie undertone.

Key tracks to look out for, 'We know what you have done' , 'Wild 
world', 'Wamp'.
