The show moves on to Side B of Piece of Mind, which is chock full of literature inspired songs based on novels, a poem, a short story and a samurai! From the band’s classic, “The Trooper,” to the bonkers lyrics of “Quest for Fire,” to the book report about Dune that is “To Tame a Land,” this album side is all killer, no filler.
