“Woman in Rust” by Silver Torches – A Song Review

     “Woman in Rust” is similar to someone walking down the center of a quiet road, gaining support and "muscle" as he moves forward. The song begins with lead vocals, drums and acoustic guitar. An electric guitar enters 0:43, but it’s not until ten seconds later that the instruments become unmuffled, as if they were on the opposite of a thin wall until the 0:53 mark. Hey Silver Torches, that was well done!
     The walk down the center of the road continues, a piano makes the move from being merely present to providing full support. That happens at 1:33. A short time later, a synth-generated string section joins the march.
