This is more a suite than a song and thus recalls the thematic work Brian was doing in the "Smile" era. Like Dennis, on Pacific Ocean Blue, the major production on Brian's first solo album is an ode to a river. While it may appear contrived, there is enough evidence of the Brian magic here to proclaim this track a success.
Has some swirling harmony sections reminiscent of "Cabinessence." David Leaf also suggests that part of the string line on "Fire" is used here.
