Song Review

01. Breathe Me In (Single Edit) 04:08
A midtempo and typical “The Mission” song. You need some time to get into this song, it works only after repeated listening, though. But then you recognize that it´s a great song.

02. Light The Candles 02.10
This song was grown out of the menu music Wayne had written for the DVD. The guitars remind me a little of “U2”. The song was underlayed with electronic sounds. It’s not the best song of “The Mission”, but a nice one.

03. Breathe Me In (Full Version) 05:29
The difference to the “Single Edit” is the longer guitar part in the middle of the song and the longer end. “Breathe…” is taken from the forthcoming Tonasol Films production “Mercenary, The Nameless Warrior”.

04. Butterfly On A Wheel(Live Version) 06:00
“Butterfly...” is one of the alltime classic live smashers.  The song originally appeared on the “Carved in Sand” album in 1990 which became the most successful “The Mission” album ever in history. “Butterfly..” itself became the most successful single hit of “The Mission”. This live-version also appears on the DVD “Lightning The Candles”

05. Tower Of Strength (Live Version) 09:51
This song is also one of the big live smash hits. It is taken out from the “Children” album which was released in 1988. This magnificent 10 minutes live version is also appears on the DVD “Lightning The Candles”.
