James

intense, emotional, a must have in your collection
Wow... is what I can say about the cd. It has a lot of emotional feelings that it brings out in me. As a verteran myself I know what he went through in his piece Mental Slavery. To me the whole cd is a must have. If a person wants to know exactly what a persons mind state is while going through some emotional times then this is a cd you must have.
