"March of Freedom" was written in memory of all of our fallen soldier in Iraq. This song opens with a soldier march and Jon Robert Quinn simulating the sound of a helicopter flying overhead with the guitar. Then the melody starts and provides a powerful feeling of war. This is a very emotional song.
"The Intimidator" provides 7 minutes of mayhem with a musical portrait of one of his heros, Dale Earnhardt Sr. This song provides the listener with glory, pride, pain, and victory, yet leaves more to brandish with the rest of the cd.
"Believe" slows things down a bit with a sound from another galaxy. This song brings the soulful side of JRQ with slow and dramatic melodies with an extra-terrestrial mood.
And, "Even More Confused" is an extension of the song "Confused" found on Solo-Fisticated. This song brings back the great dance feel with some wild and energetic guitar playing that will have you dancing in no time.

"I have just got your album. It flew all the way across the atlantic to The Isle of Lewis. I have now listened to it 4 times and it is sitting well with me. My son is 10 and he is learning the electric guitar and his wee ears pricked up when I stuck your cd onto my sound system. Keep working your guitar." - Gerry
