Just had a listen to "The Warm Side". Very cool track, interesting arrangement. Percussion sounds vary natural, I like the vocals and the guitar sounds good (could it be a new amp?) Great way to end it also. I like it a lot! Great job! Looking forward to hearing more!
Slipping away is definitely a cool song. The mix is textured and interesting without being overdone. The approach on the vocals is just right. I enjoyed the break also - it was just what the song needed there. If I had one nit to pick, I would avoid using reverb on the kick drum. It tends to muddy up the low end, IMO, robs the percussion of it's punch. That's just my opinion though. You should be pleased with this - it's quite good.
Hey! It's good to be remembered! Not sure it's any kinder than you comparing me to Tom Waits though...
