  • Speaking of the band getting a bit older, their sound does thankfully sound as if it has matured slightly as well in that the instrumentation takes on a slightly more interesting sound than on some of the earlier records in my opinion
  • Another thing I really like about this track is that it opens up the album with a set of strong lyrics which are reminiscent to those on other albums by Andrew Jackson Jihad which I highly enjoyed such as People Who Can Eat People Are The Luckiest People Alive

      The Gift Of The Magi 2: Return Of The Magi is the second track on Knife Man, the most recent album released by Andrew Jackson Jihad. Opening up with a quick distorted guitar riff, a sloppy but fitting drum rhythm also enters the track before a quick vocal performance also comes in which reminds me of a sound that Andrew Jackson Jihad had on some of their earlier EPs.

      Despite maturing and growing older in the time


      that’s passed, the vocals to the track still sound incredibly energetic and have the characteristic delivery from the band which sounds as if the singer is constantly trying to catch up with the music behind him.

        Another thing I really like about this track is that it opens up the album with a set of strong lyrics which are reminiscent to those on other albums by Andrew Jackson Jihad which I highly enjoyed such as People Who Can Eat People Are The Luckiest People Alive.

        Although this track is really the second song to appear on the track listing, since the first song is only about twenty seconds long this track feels

        more like a starting track and I personally think it would’ve made more sense to open the record with this.

        Nevertheless, this track has a great sound throughout and certainly leaves me hopeful for the remainder of the album in that it reminds me of the very energetic sound Andrew Jackson Jihad has had on previous albums but in a more mature and developed fashion.

        I’m pleased to say that this album is off to a very strong start.
