““Iraq War Song,” the first single off of songwriter Aaron Lee Marshall’s upcoming sophomore release showcases gleaming evidence that Marshall has grown infinitely as a wordsmith and as a composer. The grim subject matter found within the tune is not for the faint-of-heart, but the music that drives the piece is absolutely stunning – further accenting the lyrics, and molding the entirety of the piece into a sublime portrait of tough times steeped in the depths of hope. Not an easy task to pull off; let alone succeed at… It’s easy to be pissed off and rant away about a bitter subject. It’s another thing entirely to take that ill-fated imagery and spin it in a way that is poignant, aesthetically pleasing, and true. “Iraq War Song” is all those things. It’s just plain good. ”
