The Truth means Responsibilty | Reviewer: Bill Bidwell | 3/23/11

In my opinion, this is wonderful comment on the 'Dubya Years' in the White House where the world view was seen as a John Wayne movie; i.e. Go in guns blasting, with little or no prudence ("You go in with the army you have.".. Mr. Rumsfeld) shoot first, ask questions later. Iraq was seen as a threat, while meanwhile, the North Koreans are lobbing bombs in the Sea of Japan (NOT a threat). To me, this song sums up what many, many people thought about going in to Iraq at that time.



Stones hit a low note | Reviewer: Butch Cavendish | 12/14/07

This song is Mick Jaggers attempt at entering into the arena of political posturing, where all celebrities and artists have no business venturing. What makes them think we want to hear what side of the aisle they're on? Aside from that you can hear all his talking points by tuning into CNN or any other left wing talking head stations. Jagger points out that "But one thing that is certain, life is good at Haliburton". Whoa, heady stuff! But what is truly bad about this tune is not Jaggers ramblings, its the music itself. It is just a "god" awful song. Of course one would have to admit that these guys ran out of gas a long time ago and after 40 years its hard coming up with a body of work that would compare to their early stuff. So now we get lyrics that could have been written by a sixteen year old, so they can sell more albums and add to their treasure chest, emulating the very people Mick is railing against. When he says that gas is "getting very pricey", does he really expect us to believe that $3.00/gal for petrol is breaking his bank? Please Mick, for our sake and yours, leave the political discourse to the people who know what their talking about. And Mick, if you have anything left in your tank, write about something we know your good at....tempting 15yr old girls or perhaps a nice tune about cheating on your wife(s). Otherwise, why don't you and that dried up old hack of a guitar player do us all a favor and fade off into oblivion.
