Review by ProgKidJoel

Although only a single track, SECRET SONG should be taken seriously - Its a lovely track, which genuinely deserved to be released on its own. Transversing several beautiful riffs and sub-genres within its 7 minute length, this beautiful journey is an essential piece in the MAUDLIN OF THE WELL discography.

Opening with lovely acoustic guitar, this track eventuates into a great avant-garde metal track, featuring a catchy riff and true musicianship. This track is a true testament to MAUDLIN OF THE WELL's brilliance, and its hard to see why this was left off their full albums...

Eventually, we find a riff unlike those from TOOL, also featuring whispers similar to TOOL. This track feels incredibly grounded, yet chaotic and loose at the same time. With around 3 minutes left, soft trumpets play over softer guitars, which sound lovely in conjunction and are really a site for any space rock lover to behold. Continuing in a soft and comforting manner, SECRET SONG eventually closes in the same manner in which it started.

Another goody from Toby and the guys, this is a lovely track.

A fantastic, and necessary addition to the collection of any motW fan.

Enjoy, and pick it up when/if you can!
