Ultimate Classic Rock - Phil Collen Interview Quote

"All the songs are very diverse - the song 'Lies, Lies, All Lies,' (I) really like that, it's got kind of a funk element to it. Lyrically it just talks about lies, that everyone tells lies at some point. Lyrically a lot of the stuff with Manraze is great, it's like the music you can go off on any tangent, you can be political if you want, you want to get something off your chest you can just do that."
