First of all, this isn't an album to promote world peace--it's for the American Spirit, hence "American style". (No offense, but look at the title.) And what other style should the songs "aimed at an international audience" use? Chinese? That would make sense...

I would also like to know where you got the quotes "Call of the Americans" or "Call of the Bomb-sniffing Dogs". I really would.

"Williams' style is distinctly East-Coast....and the styles of music heard in those regions."

Ummm...the east coast is sort of where our country was founded... New York was sort of where the tragedies of September eleventh occured.
"The music heard in those regions"???? Give me a break!

"The "American Journey" piece has nothing, for instance, to musically represent California or the Rocky Mountain region."

Watch that lower lip... Or Texas or Hawaii or Alaska or Florida or Virginia or... It's a pity all the states and regions of the country weren't accounted for on this album.

"There are many such curious aspects to this album that could be debated to no end."

Ya and that would be worth it. Such arguments are trivial and are not worth the time of the sensible. Maybe when this album goes to court I'll be interested in the horrors of Williams' "closed-minded American style". (snicker)
