Your Gentle Mind | Reviewer: Rhino | 10/1/12
This song truly touches heart for me and in its own way tells it's part in my life story. My mom dated a man who adored blonde redhead but he wasn't very sane. My mother always said he had a gentle mind but was extremely depressed. I think the butterfly in the room reminds me of everytime I'd enter a room and feel the sudden change of aura (misery if you will). It followed him..as if a dark cloud constantly roaming over our heads. So deep. So meaningful. Enough for me to tattoo the name onto my body to help tell my tale.

This song is life itself. It simply sums up what life has been, is and will be. Misery is the only reality. For me at least. Those who see that butterfly called misery, fall inevitably in love with her. For that reason, I am in love with this song.

This is really art, not many melodies are so graphic and explicit - the picture comes to your mind, just as easily as if you had seen it painted in front of you.
The lyrics are true poetry, specially around the end of the song, and it's just fog, solitude and possibly naked trees.
When I listen to this song.
I picture a young Kazu walking through a dark and vast expanse of desert.
You can almost hear her crying in the song.
The vocals and instruments come together perfectly and portray Kazu's true emotions.
It's a calming and moving song at that.
One who hasn't listened to this song, has missed out on something monumental.
This song, whose album's name is one and the same, holds that honor for a reason.
The music, as well as Kazu's voice, is haunting, the lyrics saddening, and the percussion is so perfectly timed and fluid. This song takes me places when I listen to it driving. I've had several mini epiphanies will listening to this song and thinking about the lyrics. There is also something femme about it, outside of the butterfly itself, some minute quality that makes me think of woman I've watched grow and change over the years. Per usual, Kazu's lyrics are more cryptic than Amedeo's, but I have my ideas...
At any rate, this song is just beautiful and I don't think anyone can help getting wrapped up in it. When I listen to it on the way to work, I cannot shut it off before it is over- I sit in my car and wait. So there you have it.
