Based on the story in the liner notes of GGTN, the lyrics of Six Broken Soldiers and American Cheese, I expected Jerry's solo record to be full of poetic imagery and symbolism. Instead, it's a very dark and personal record of very straight-forward pathos. Half the songs on this album contain the words lonely, lost or alone.
References to rough times with love, relationships, friends, family and his children reveal that the rarely heard third member of King's X truly had some bottled up emotions that needed venting. This album comes off as even more emotionally raw than Doug's first Poundhound album, but at the same time it still feels distant, as if he's still veiling some things, fearing to reveal the whole truth.
