In our interview with Derek and Ray Shulman of Gentle Giant
, Derek refers to this song as an example of why he feels that Gentle Giant writes "pieces of music" instead of songs. Ray goes on to say, "The way we composed, I'd write a part, and then Kerry (Minnear) would write a part, and we'd write them individually. And then Derek would supply lyrics and help with the vocal line, etcetera, and then go back to Kerry, who'd arrange some vocal parts, and then come back to me to do different arrangements. So they were all kind of mixed up that way."
