This track begins as a soft, dreamy, ballad, but after a couple of minutes it drifts off into a free-time improvisation. That means, there's no time signature or tempo , so you can imagine how much of a pain in the ass it was to chart for the remaining 10 minutes. It also makes it one of the most unique Rock Band experiences available, due to the unpredictability and complete lack of structure. On drums, even the opening is tricky, but later on there's  fast, random rolls and interesting improvised rhythms. Both guitar and vibraphone (charted to keys) have a mix of sparse, relaxed noodling, and crazy quick runs. Vocals have a nice melody going on in the ballad section, and then do nothing for 10 minutes. Perhaps I should have made a radio edit version. Also, there's actually no bass part.
