"Confessions" is a piano solo, but uses quotes from the movie Amadeus. The track "Beyond Abilities" also uses a quote from that movie, "A young man trying to impress beyond his abilities. Too much spice, too, um... too many notes." The track "Salieri Strikes Back" is named after the character Salieri from the movie, and a real-life rival of Mozart.
