"Now We Hurry On" starts off with (and returns to) a very moving echo or reprise or variation of a line from "In Our Talons." It really brings home one of the fantastic things about The Bowerbirds: Phil is really a terrifically expressive singer, bringing a huge amount of emotional content to these songs. There's a video about the making of the album (http://vimeo.com/36499958) and you can really hear the depth of feeling evident in the video coming through in these songs.

Although Phil, a great singer, continues to take the lead, Beth makes some great vocal contributions to the album.
