I like this a lot, it reminds me of some of the Eno/Budd collaborations. This is great on a day like today. Misty, cold, a little gloomy. I don't mean that in a bad way, it reflected my mood perfectly.
 
This piece sounds a lot like Brian Eno's classic "Ambient 1/Music for Airports".

"a musical duo...."  You got to be kidding.
SEMPLICEMENTE FANTASTICA QUESTA MUSICA! SUPER SUPER BELLA OVVIO PER ME
As beautiful as this piece is...it's an energy killer. Happens every single time. This time, it was a Steely Dan song, which preceded it, and was feeling a groove and then CWNN comes in and slams on the brakes. I truly appreciate and like this song, but talk about coming to a screeching halt. Gah.

This is, like it or not, the greatest prog album ever. Yes is the greatest prog band (close tie with Crimson and ELP and PFM). And for those of us who were in our teens when it was released, this is about as close to a religious and transcendent experience as folks could put on vinyl.
Was wondering how a segue from Close to the Edge would work... now I know. Once again, well played segue master, well played.

Why yes, but it became unobtainable, and ruined the whole thing.

Hmmmm.  Good observation.  Identified similarly in Wikipedia's entry for Cult with No Name:

"The band's second album, Careful What You Wish For, was released a year later and included the instrumental track "You Know Me Better Than I Know Myself", which featured Tuxedomoon's Blaine L. Reininger on violin, ... "

Sounds like a personal (computer) problem!  I rated this one a 9 somewhere along the line, now I'm not sure if 8 is more appropriate, although the 'lyrics' listed are cool, I didn't hear anything sung on this song, so I'm a bit confused....at least it was a great intro to Tull's Locomotive Breath...Long Live RP!!
To me, this song is a beautiful and long intro to an another song...
And Bill always find a good transition to this one :)
this song makes me sad

Odd, I tried to reply and it was blank... and without a name. I had a friend from CT that I drove from RP. Sorry emilia if this is you

THIS song has feeling & belonging. 8
This doesn't remind of anything. It's alright in it's own right. Shipp, Copenhagen Denmt

It reminds me of a French Canadian band from the 70's called Canoe. Let the jokes begin but they had a couple of lovely albums.
8 => 9 {#Meditate}

Like a nice, cool drink of water in the sunshine, on this hot day in Albuquerque. I approve. {#Yes}
Lovely song.

(I have a Bose Color Soundlink so it don't sound scratchy.)

NOOOOO not the screechy violin song again!  Back to Dynamic Range Radio for awhile.

Is good
 
I have not rated this, I always go by the majority rules,  and all the haters here and negative folks, you lose,  it is liked by the majority, use the PSD and move on! 
This song is for me a big nice intro for the next one, which is often different
Waiting for the surprise coming...
Sounds like an unfinished demo. The violin noodling is particularly annoying.

I guess that's why it has a 7.5 rating here (above average)?

Come on, enough already!  This is way too slow for RP. Not eclectic but elevator music. I vote to remove this song, forever from the playlist.
A most welcome blast from the past. Thank you RP!
One day, I love the song & music.

Another day, the cynic steps forward and says "If Only."  

Another day, the Wounded One says "Why-?" and watches the rain keep falling.

Well, now that it's going on 4 months and it's still cold this just seems like an insult.  

Actually I love this song.  It's just been cold long enough and we still have at best another month to go.  At least here in Wyoming.
When I first heard this song i bought it and looped it over and over for about a week.  I still love hearing it on Radio Paradise.  It's such an honest piece of music.

This may be good for a 3 AM spot on Wednesday, but on a Friday... come on. 
I stopped working although I was so deep into writing a concept when I heard that piece of music.
Haven't heard it before but love it.

Been running around all day, working on a ton of things that need to get done.

Nice to hear this and STOP FOR A MOMENT and ...  just breathe.

but, when you are accustomed to the sound of the american fiddle, this is an excellent performance.  more about the feel than the technique.

Guess I'm in the minority here, but to me it sounds like substandard classical. I like the overall vibe but some off-pitch notes on the strings are really grating.

all good except, {#Flamed} the music out of texass is without doubt some of the greatest ever made.....
But it's not a violin, is it?  The low range made me think Viola and Cello, yet the peaks were way up there...  I'm thinking an ensemble of all three...  Of course, I haven't researched it and just spouting off in response to other posts...  Sorry, got company, gotta go, but I LOVE this piece!
B.E.A.utiful{#Daisy}
Wonderful.
This always reminds me of Ry Cooder's soundtrack to the Walter Hill film JOHNNY HANDSOME. The opening piano notes always make me think we're about to hear the theme from JOHNNY...

The strings remind me of The Straight Story soundtrack again. Absolutely Beautiful film.

This made me feel very weird, sad, I think. It's the same weather today as it was a couple of years back, while I was still at university, when I took my mom to sightsee the campus and the city it was in. She wanted to see it so much, and she still does, even though it's been 3 years since I graduated.
Hearing this song in this weather made me realize the fact that I can't go to that past anymore, nor can I relive it. Perhaps I won't even be allowed in the campus grounds because I'm no longer a student, but I can at least take her to the city.

 
<3 music has that amazing way to bring back the past, but never as fresh as we'd like the memory to be.

Last time this was on RP I bought the CD. This may be my favorite tune from the whole album. It's quite different from the rest. Love good electric string instruments.
Mmmm...that was quite nice

A cleansing and beautiful track. Making me sad...and I don't want to be sad right now.

Except for the few screechy cat-with-nails-on-charkboard parts
Beautiful!!!
Has to be a 10 for me!

I hope these folks sent a nice thank you card to RP, it appears that they got a lot of exposure from here.
Without the piano, it would sound remarkably similar to a Romanian "doină" — which also expresses feelings of longing. It can make you weep even if you don't have anyone to miss...
See the comments at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAqo4swBXXU {#Yes}
Need your earphones on to really appreciate this.
Right now I can't think of a more perfect piece of music.  Brief and beautiful.  Transcendent.  And THANK YOU for your comment on this song eswiley — peace and joy to you and your family.
When a guy realizes that she's not coming back ... this song is that feeling (to me) ...

To gemtag - Thank you for that comment Professor Snarky!  (By the way, deliberately misspelling as a small joke - purty is just fine)
One of the more beautiful and evocative tracks RP plays. Goes deep. 
Zzzzzzzz.

I'm metastatic and one of the things I amuse myself with at work is creating a soundtrack to my death.  When my mom was in hospice, no one told us the signs of impending death and instead of hearing calm, she heard us freaking out.  I'm thinking that her last thought was that my sister and I had to stop being such ninnies - that being a favorite comment made to us and especially to me.

This song is on the top of my list.  I don't want sad b/c I when the time comes, I don't want to delay my passage by thinking about sad things - I want music that feels calm and 'pretty' and which might be reassuring to my husband, sister and cousin.

I don't mean this to be morbid.  I have a concurrent list called 'Things to play during Remission Periods'.  Lots of dance tracks on that one!

This is not morbid at all. In fact, this is a tremendous post and an idea I will borrow for my passage as well. When my mother-in-law passed, the hospital had a harpist summoned who played through her last breath and kept playing for some time after. We like to think that it helped her, but we know that it helped us. Thanks for sharing this idea.
