season’s greetings 2017 from ex machina!
Because it was the first ex machina album to feature songs in a more traditional way, Claudio and Tobias decided to put four album tracks as instrumentals as an appendix on this album. These tracks are “head up (in the sky)”, “dreamer”, “the eagle force” and “afternoon”. “dreamer” is the only track that has a slightly altered production than it’s vocalized counterpart. All the other tracks are merely really just the album versions which were stripped off of the vocals. Just in “afternoon” Claudio and Tobias decided to let the ad-lib part of Eva at the end of the track intact as this bit adds so much to the track.
The tracks are really interesting and it’s really fascinating to hear how all of the tracks are also working very well without the vocals.
This is the final entry in the “line of time” album retrospect
