“All The Good That We've Done” by We Were Strangers – A Song Feature
The song is energizing, despite its lyrical description of misguided devotion, the anguish in the backing vocals, and the darkness in the instruments. The ratio of piano notes to the emotional impact of the piano in “All The Good That We've Done” is masterful. And while the male vocals carry the listener to the emotional state, the song would not be as powerful without the female backing vocals.
Still, it’s the slow building crescendo that overpowers the elements of darkness in the song from We Were Strangers. The crescendo begins with a lower-key piano note at 1:36 and lasts for nearly one minute, before descending into atmospheric female vocals.
We Were Strangers is the project of Stefan Melbourne, who is based in Manchester, UK. We could not find the names of the female vocalist or other musicians who contributed to “All The Good That We've Done.”
