Dear friend, I didn't start out writing this song with any theme or central idea in mind. It was just a great melody that God gave to me, and I did the best I could with it. Even when I settled on the title "Revealing," I still didn't think this song was actually about anything. The title just seemed to fit somehow. But as I got near the end of the song, I realized that everything that happens in the song parallels the things that have happened in my life over the course of the last year. About two years ago, God revealed to me His plan for my future: to become a Catholic priest. And about one year ago, I finally made up my mind to follow Him. Ever since then, every day of my life God has revealed to me a little bit more about how the world works, why some things happen the way they do, what God wants me to focus on and accomplish in the future, and why. It's almost never obvious, just like you may not notice it when a single leaf begins to turn gold at the beginning of autumn, but gradually the entire tree changes until one day you look up and are stricken with amazement as you realize for the first time that the tree is ablaze with color. So it is with God constantly and gradually revealing to me everything I will need to know. My good friend Hendrik Kluwe (a.k.a. Traxler) constantly tells me that "Music tells us more than words," and in this case he was certainly right. It's a constant struggle to see God in the everyday things of life, but this song has helped to make that easier for me. So, this song is dedicated to God for all of the ways in which He works in my life, many times without my even knowing it. This song is also dedicated to Rita, a close friend of mine who was greatly hurt by my decision, but who is an even closer friend now because of it. (Thanks for being there for me!) Until next time... Novus

This song has a lot of firsts for me: first IT release, first song in 3/4 time, first use of stereo panning, first use of some new drum samples, and the first melody that God ever gave to me in the middle of Mass... Greetz go out to... God: You've been so good to me, Lord! Kerinsky: Hey bro, thanks for putting up with my 5-meg e-mails and constant Web page updates! Traxler: Great work, man! If your song Atomic Playboy doesn't hit the top 3 in October, something is wrong with those voters! Andreas Viklund: How do you DO this? Two months in a row at #1, and a strong chance at 3. :) Visit my Web page!!! http:// www.fortunecity.com/ tinpan/myway/60/index.htm E-mail me!!! eyoung01_ucis.vill.edu Hit SHIFT+F9 for an open letter to a friend...

Beautiful melodies again with Novus, he sure can handle those piano samples ;) This song has a very good feeling, that's all I can say... just beautiful. Remember to read the comments if you download this. The text fits great within the song. And one useless comment : The ending piano sounds a bit like start of the swedish dance band E-Types "Angels Crying". It just made me laugh... All samples are clean and high-quality, and they work great with each other. I don't have enough EMS to listen to this with Impulse Tracker, so I couldn't check the sample setting that well, but it doesn't matter so much when the song sounds so good as this one...
