In uncertain times, often artists are the ones who point the way. Such a time is the present. In this regard the Robert Ross Band points us in a direction where we reflect and ponder the nation's current political status, in the aftermath of national tragedy and the actions taken.

In the spirit of Michael Moore's film, "Fahrenheit 9/11," Robert Ross serves up a collection of politically charged songs meant to stir and expand the debate of current American policy. In doing so, Robert Ross and his band bring forth power, emotion and humor to the proceedings, all the while maintaining an uplifting view of healing and cooperation.

The record kicks off with the title track "What Are We Fighting For?," a scathing indictment of American policy in Iraq. With "One Man - One Vote" the Robert Ross Band questions election day practices and their implications. "Fee Fie Foe Fum" rocks out on an Orwellian global view, and "We Are One'" closes the disc with a gospel touch, a paean to brotherhood and understanding.

In these uncertain and politically heated times, we need artists such as Robert Ross.
