For Marc, this record is a representation of transitioning styles from jazz and guitar studies to singer/songwriter. It finally combines his lifelong studies of the guitar with his endless journal writing and poetry. What you will find are insightful and emotional arrangements of lyrical ballads to a rocked out version of Lay Me Down. Highlights on this record include: Pull In On The Reins, with it's beautiful and descriptive landscape of love and loss, it is bound to bring a tear; My Last Breath has a beautiful female harmony part and solemn lyrical imagery like 'to be without a dream's a knife buried in my knee, and a long walk anyway till my day in the grave'; Lay Me Down cranks out some great electric guitar work, killer trumpet harmonies, and driving drums sure to make you want to start again from the beginning; Linger is a beautiful song of departure that captures the grateful spirit of rather having loved and lost, than not ever loved at all (secret is it is about breaking up with a band... not a relationship); It's You is a short and sweet love song that has been a popular choice for many wedding ceremonies; and finally the title track, Stonethrowers, which embodied the ball and chain struggles Marc felt as the wars with inequality and religious intolerance raged in the Bush/Cheney years.
