"A Tear For Kursk" is Sleepwalker's tribute to the Russian submarine that sank in the icy Baltic waters, killing all hands on board. This is a single track CD with emotive, flowing strings, processional snare drum, acoustic guitar, piano and spoken voice. A soaring female vocal line periodically rises to operatic heights billowing above everything - sonar pings juxaposing soft chimes in the interlude, as the promotional material puts it: "a haunting new age song" that will touch the heart.
