Reminds me a lot of 70s Genesis. Pretty amazing song really, not sure why no one commented yet!

Liked the tempo change at 0:55. For me the arrangement is generally too busy with too many elements which all seem to be competing rather than complimenting. Interesting title, "the more I know, the less I care" Whats the thinking behind that?

Thank you for the feedback everyone!

Frenetic textures seem to have become part of my signature sound. That said, I do like for all the individual parts to groove together by rowing the boat in the same direction.

For this track, the background parts were well established and jamming away before I added the foreground melody part at the very end. When I have some extra time, I may revisit the track to see if I can tone down the energy in some of the busier moments to allow individual parts to shine through and have a moment in the spotlight.

It's a sardonic twist on an old NBC quote.

Folks may interpret it whatever way they want.

As for me, there have been times when I thought I really wanted to know the truth,

but the path to finding the truth, along with the actual truth itself, left a bitter taste in my mouth, or left me feeling over-/under-whelmed.

Also, as I have gotten longer in the tooth, I have become more selective about where my focus goes.

Thanks again for listening!
