Climbing up the same walls
been climbing up for years
but its not the way it looks love
its not how it appears

don't ever darken my door
don't ever show your face
its a faithless revelation
to put you in your place

oh you'll never know
how this feels.
this is music to my ears yea
long time coming...

one more day in your arms
seems half a world away
all those precious moments
will haunt me to the grave

oh you'll never know how this feels
this is music to my ears yea
long time coming..
its been a long time coming..
long time coming
its been a long time coming..

don't go...
don't go...
don't go....

 Was also hearing that influence.  Just saw him play with Fleetwood Mac.  I liked him before but was blown away by his talent!  Sorry Lindsey, you were not missed...

 Thank you! I couldn't figure out what this reminded me of...  Figured if I looked at the band I would know the song because it must be the same band.  That didn't work so I knew one of you genius's out there would have the answer:)

Rating this a 6....no, 7......no, 8.
Definitely hearing Crowded House, at least some sort of Finn production. Me likey!
This could be my Song of the Day. 
                                                      Why Plagiolirion is also called  Eucaris horsmannii?

yeah, about 15 years ago, Crows was the rage.... Black Crowes, Counting Crowes, and old crow medicine show.   It's cyclical.  I think it goes to reptiles next..

 
I think it's moving towards bears lately.  An ursine conspiracy is afoot.
Some music just reminds you of other music.  Very reminiscent of Soul Asylum to me.
nice!
Music to my ears...  Indeed! I hear many parallels in this one; resonance is one trippy function of sound & wavelength that I always dig!
Love this song!
Does it for me.  Purchase time.

edit:  great album, to my ears.  Sorry they are no more.  This is what Travis wish they could sound like.
Great album, but they are no more due in part to tragedy.
Emm, nice sound, were they been all my life ?

Yeah me too (though I like Crowded House).  This is nice.


Hey ..... I am Montana born and bred (5th generation) and I have absolutely NO problem with the term cowboyland.

But, if Montana is no longer cowboyland, where can it be found?  That would be nowhere,  though the myth is difficult to surrender.

Um, where, exactly, is "Cowboyland"?  Be careful with your answer, because I grew up in (and still live in) a place that was and is lovingly referred-to as "cowboyland," but somehow, I don't think your reference applies to my neck of the woods. I bet you've never ridden a horse in your life. I bet you've never been to a rodeo. I bet you've never worked on a ranch, herding and branding cows. I bet you have no idea what barrel-racing is. I bet the smell of burning cow-flesh would make you pass out.

Stop throwing around expressions about which you have no first-hand information. It only proves to everyone that you're a child. The fact that you're still allowed to post here is only because it's an open forum, and the denizens pretty much patrol themselves and resolve their differences off-board.

And that's all I'm saying about your absolutely asinine reference to "cowboyland."

Aw, I got excited. From the beginning of this song I thought it was "Waiting" from the 6 Feet Under soundtrack.

I truely want to like this more but it seems there's a trend for a lot of bands to have way too much going on in the background so the vocals are struggling to be understood, too many layers, just cause they can, anyone agree?
 
Probably depends on the person mixing it? I know what you mean, though - that tight, simple sound that three or four people can make, and it becomes bigger than life? I love that! Still love some rich backgrounds, tho : )

I saw Rubyhorse once when they opened for Jump, Little Children. I have to say, they sounded lot better live than they sound recorded in studio.

I'm waiting for the Devlins
mmmm, nice
Nice.
I can dig this. Very soulful. {#Chillpill}
Reminds me a whole lot about "Waiting" by the Devlins. Same mood and tempo. Quite likeable, indeed.
Enjoying all the music this afternoon Bill - Top stuff!!
I really enjoyed it, gots to find me some more of them. Thanks!
I like how they've incorporated strings; especially the cello towards the end.
I thought that this was Soul Asylum at first... vocalist sounded a bit like Dave Pirner to me and that is not a bad thing.

I was thinking of lyrics not sound, but Tony Joe White's: There's a dark horse comin' I'm not ready to ride.
can someone please tell me what happened to these guys? their website or myspace page haven't been updated for years.
I met this group on my flight to Ireland - very coold guys - VERY great song

I think in most cases folks are just trying to pin down what they like/dislike about songs by comparing them to bands they like/dislike. And I don't think it particularly detracts from enjoying the song. After all, most art is derivative of something that came before. But that doesn't mean we can't like it.
well said, Johnny (you are johnny marr, aren't you?)

the only similarity I hear is the saccharine strings.. why do bands always let some nerd come in and destroy the raw guts of their work?

For some reason, the opening reminds me of a slowed-down opening to Duncan Sheik's "Barely Breathing." Anybody care for that one? I've liked Rubyhorse for some time now. This song is no exception. Excellent.

I really like this. very nice. :D

...I'm not real familiar with these last two songs, but the segue was flawless...
dem are good, dem are!
Sounds a bit like Neil Finn's vocals....

Damn! I like that!
