So I made a thread almost identical to this one about 2 years ago for the last release of their last album.

Knife Man just leaked...can be "borrowed" by searching for it on Google. When it releases on the 20th I recommend you "return" your "borrowed" copy and go buy one...band deserves it.

Thus far I'm digging it. A LOT more electronic stuff, they're definitely shying away from acoustic more and more as time goes on. The starting track, "The Michael Jordan of Drunk Driving Played His Final Game Tonight" is the most legit acoustic track the album really winds up with.

Also, Sean's lyrics keep getting more extreme as time goes on...guy's seriously starting to make me feel sad lol. Last track, "Big Bird" is ridiculously emotional.

Yeah, got it a coupe days ago.

The album makes me feel so damn bad because of the lyrics, but in a good kind of way. I've already listened to it a ton. I'm impressed that it doesn't blow, considering the relatively large shift in dynamics. "American Tune," "Sad Songs (Interlude)" and "Free Bird" are my favorite tracks at the moment. Super duper rad.

I wouldn't be surprised if I end up liking it more than People. It sounds like it's going to have a lot of replay value.

I'm going to wait, and buy it when it comes out.

Love this band so much. They're one of the few bands I can listen to a whole album and not be satisfied with just that one play.

I'll even give it a listen, and I never listen to this kind of stuff.

Andrew Jackson Jihad is the best folk-punk band around. Downloading now. Thanks for the info.

I like the cover. Is it a Basquiat painting or does it just have the crown?

"Zombie By The Cranberries By Andrew Jackson Jihad" is the best song name I've ever heard of.

My favorite tracks by AJJ have all been from split albums

It's full of great song names. I'm going to start playing "Free Bird" if anyone ever shouts "Freebird!" at a show.

That's one of my favorite songs by the band. It has (what I assume to be) a good message with really creative delivery. It's brilliant on every level.

Anyone else feel like "Big Bird" completely nailed them?


And I'm not talking about Sesame Street porn, before anyone says it.

My LP package arrived today.
I put on the shirt and almost came

It is one of their best albums, probably their best, imo. It's so depressing, yet so incredible.

I did notice two... weird things. In the digital download the People 2 song is tagged as "People II 2: Still Peoplin'", with both 2's, and in the lyrics book, The Gift of the Magi 2 is spelled "Maji". They're probably like that on purpose, I just thought it was weird

Why is it that when a punk album is focused on poverty and inequality, everyone says it's depressing. I mean no offense or anything, BUT IT'S PUNK FUCKING RAWK, YOU GUYS.

Also, I like this more than the new House Boat album, and I love the new House Boat album.

I listened to AJJ a fair bit last year. I got "Self Esteem" stuck in my head all day after first seeing this thread.

I think they got a good sound for themselves and stuff, but they sorta make me feel bad. And not good bad. I don't know how much of that is because of the content of their music/lyrics and how much is because of the memories I associate with listening to them. And they don't really ever fit into my listening routines. But I can't say I "don't like" them, even in a passive way.

It makes me uneasy when I don't know if I like a band or not.

"American Tune" is sad as shit just because it's so true. It's coming to a close now, I hope this stuff doesn't get too much more depressing.


Edit: Zombie by the Cranberries by Andrew Jackson Jihad is also a downer. Damn good album though. I think I like it more than People on the whole.

I can relate to this. But not regarding Andrew Jackson Jihad, 'cuz I like them. I especially love their split with Ghost Mice; "Little Prince" & "Forest Fire" are two of my personal favs. I even met Sean of Andrew Jackons Jihad one time after my band opened for him & that dude from BTMI! at the student center of Trinity College in Hartford. He was a real cool cat.

AJJ/Ghost Mice split is awesome, though I do like the Ghost Mice half more.

That version of Forest Fire is awesome.
I smile whenever I hear the very end of it

well, the important thing is that you believe that is true.

What would you say has better lyrics?

What's great about AJJ lyrics is the fact that even if one particular song doesn't relate to your woes, there's still one out there.

Also, 'Who Are You?' off of Can't Maintain is one of the catchiest songs I've ever heard.
