Polenberg returns us to the lads and ladies who, in tune, turned legends. The lyrics function useful old assets, offering vital information regarding what had occurred, why, and what all of it intended. extra very important, they mirror the nature of yank existence and the pathos elicited by means of the musical reminiscence of those universal and afflicted lives.
