"Here we are at this point in the band's history and just like with any lifespan, the longer you love, the longer things look in back of you - and shorter in front of you too. That sense of perspective means that you're much less likely to want to waste any time at all. So there's a even greater sense of mortality, of the stakes involved here and an even stronger desire to make every moment on the album matter," says Ann Wilson. "There's not an inauthentic, fictitious or posing bone in the body of this album," adds Nancy Wilson. "Whether it's smart or not, there's no posing going on here whatsoever. We're telling our story. At one point, I said to Ann and Ben [Mink - the album's producer], `What we're doing in the studio with this album, this is the way we the Indians used to do it. You make a fire, and then you sit around the fire and tell your stories and pass them on with a real sense of one on one human contact. We feel like we made quite a fire together."
