Andrew Jackson Jihad - Sad Songs (Song)
  • Something to note about this track is that it actually makes use a piano which is fairly prominent in the mix and I believe this is the first song in Andrew Jackson Jihad’s catalogue where they’ve utilized this instrument if memory serves correctly
  • Though the band had played around with a few guitar solos on earlier tracks, now they actually take advantage of the piano present on the song and utilize both a piano and a guitar solo which I think comes out sounding great

      Sad Songs is a track by Andrew Jackson Jihad which is the tenth track on their latest album, Knife Man. Opening up with a catchy rhythm, the vocals quickly come into the song with a melody that is just as catchy as the rhythm itself.

      Thankfully, the piano works to the band’s advantage and it helps reinforce the sort of ragtime feel that the rhythm and melody remind me of.

      As I stated on a review for another song on this track, a listener really gets a feel for the diverse sounds that Andrew Jackson Jihad has and this track is yet another unique sounding track in that it has a ...


      • ragtime feel.

        After going through a couple of vocal sections, the band launches into an instrumental passage which makes use of yet another section of leads.

        Though the band had played around with a few guitar solos on earlier tracks, now they actually take advantage of the piano present on the song and utilize both a piano and a guitar solo which I think comes out sounding great.

        Though some fans of Andrew Jackson Jihad may think they

        abandoned their typical aggressive sound, I think that they just had some natural departures from it throughout this album and that if a listener makes the mistake of choosing to dismiss these songs rather than at least trying them, they’ll be missing out on some very good songwriting.

        Personally, I’m really starting to enjoy this album a lot more because Andrew Jackson Jihad really embraced some alternate sounds and this track is a good example of that.
