  • Though at first, I thought this might be some type of unorthodox cover of the iconic track from Lynyrd Skynyrd, but you can rest assured that this is another original from the band
  • Though I stated in an earlier review that I usually don’t use the word gentle to describe the vocal performance of most Andrew Jackson Jihad songs, I think that this is one of the few tracks where that description would be appropriate and fitting

      Free Bird is a song by Andrew Jackson Jihad and is the penultimate track on their 2011 release, Knife Man. Though at first, I thought this might be some type of unorthodox cover of the iconic track from Lynyrd Skynyrd, but you can rest assured that this is another original from the band.

      Opening up with some background noise effects, an acoustic guitar can be heard which begins with a percussive sound but soon transitions into a


      more traditional sound.

      In addition to this instrument, a lead guitar also comes in which actually gives the song a fairly Hawaiian sound at least for a while.

      However, this sound does not go on for too long and once the vocals come in for the first track, it only comes in now and then.

        Interestingly, Andrew Jackson Jihad actually seemed to attempt a ballad earlier on this record in the song of Back Pack which I thought was average but had a lot of room for improvement.

        Thankfully, I find that the sound throughout this track to be a huge improvement over Back Pack and think they did a

        far better job with both the songwriting and the performance on this song compared to Back Pack.

        Overall, Free Bird has an incredibly melodic and gentle tone throughout which I think is a nice break from songs like Sorry Bro and Skate Park, the two preceding tracks on the record, which have more of the traditional aggressive sound from the band.

        Overall, Free Bird is probably the best song on the album in terms of more melodic songs.
