"Die Free" makes a crunchingly powerful critique on America's obsession with computer-driven fantasy and Dawn Michele purrs out the opening salvo over a riff rugged enough to rattle your teeth. "Captivated by the kingdom of excess/Indoctrinated by religion of S.E.X./Mesmerised by illusions of grandeur/Supersizing my every desire." I could have done with a few more voices of equal power but I'll settle for the repeated refrain "take back your American daydream." Sonically thrilling and though the contribution by Disciple's Kevin Young is minimal, there's no denying that this is possibly Fireflight's best ever cut and even better than their "I Won't Look Back" radio hit. If you're up for the commercial end of hard rock, this powerful cut is an essential listen.
