Alrihkh Ben Craven is a great songsmith. I see no inclusions in the facets of this fine gem of melodic prog rock. Each song has it’s own definitive character and style yet belongs to the whole. Ben has a great sense of song structure and each element he implements sounds just right. Love those guitar tones! This music is satisfyingly creative and a very easy listen. I have a great affinity for it & totally feel at home listening to it. Very catchy & good for the heart. Thanks, Ben! 9+/10. Favorite track: If You Knew.

Michael Reilly Entertaining progressive rock album that regularly shifts in tone and style, but never loses its unique identity or charm. I've got plenty of favourite tunes on this revisited version of the old release, as I really enjoy Ben's songwriting scope and his adventurous musical outlook. Favorite track: Look Away.

Great Divide 05:45
Lost soul looking for the way The great divide at break of day Offers everything to learn Taking nothing in return I might wander far and wide You'll always be the great divide Insulated from the night The darkest moments turn to light Two false idols merge to one Reveal a long forgotten sun History will pass you by You'll always be the great divide It's not enough to stand in awe Time to come out to the fore Nothing ever stays the same Who'll be the keeper of the flame You may not always be my guide I'll always need the great divide

I wanna tell you I'm a helluva guy I know you want me I'm a little bit shy I drive a hot car I live in the ritz You'll never score any better than this I know I'm on a good thing, You'll be too Only if you're with me baby, But enough about you She was something when I cut her a break Now she's dried up think I made a mistake That don't matter I'm on top of the world I'm auditioning my new leading girl I know I'm on a good thing, You'll be too Only if you're with me baby, But enough about you Got my supermodel waiting in bed But I'm off to prove I'm still full of lead Spent some money in my limo instead Get arrested after losing my head I know I'm on a good thing, You'll be too Only if you're with me baby, But enough about you Baby don't like my mark on her chin Guess it's high time I traded her in Find another who'll fall at my feet Better film it so she won't miss a beat

Got a girl who's a perfect distraction She don't know how much I like to be free I can take her and leave her whatever I want And she'll always be there waiting for me She got wise and she wants me to change But there's nothing wrong with what I do I show her somebody better I want I tell her dumpsville population you It's not me it's you It's not me it's you It's not me it's you You know there's nothing you can do Run to you for some extra attention You don't wanna hear what I got to say You tell me I was a perfect distraction Such a shame I couldn't keep it that way You tell me you've had your fun on the side But now that you've decided we're through You say you're bored I don't thrill you no more And now you got somebody new It's not me it's you It's not me it's you It's not me it's you You know there's nothing you can do High and dry I just wanted to die What was I supposed to do It doesn't matter what you meant anymore Cause the first love in my hand is true It's me it's not you It's me it's not you It's me it's not you You know there's nothing you can do

about

2012 STEREO REMIX

Ben Craven: Far back in the midst of time (circa 2006) I released an album called "Two False Idols" under the name of "Tunisia". It was a lush production, with a spacious sound and dense atmosphere.

During the making of "Great & Terrible Potions", my sonic preferences changed. I wanted to revisit my first album and bring out all the parts more clearly in the mix. I also re-sequenced the track running order to improve the flow of the album.

Here, then, is a new take on "Two False Idols", this time released instead by "Ben Craven", completely remixed with the benefit of hindsight.
