    I agree with both of you. Very interesting. Being an artist I enjoyed the use of the photos. Ii gave the illusion of building. Most impressive.

    Yes, I agree with you SueJean, interesting song, quite a fast tempo, but I didn't hear the Australian influence, rather a very nice guitar, maybe halfway through. The scenery must remind so many is Israel of how the land looked in 1948, untill the people of Covenant came home, and then the land changed.

    Interesting song and pictures!
    Some of the instruments sounded almost Australian like the didgeridoo which really added to the intensity.
    What made this song great for me was the timing, because just before this one, I watched the video that came out in the BIN newsletter of the two children building in the sand while their father reads the newspaper. If you haven’t seen that video, it’s worth a search to see it.
