Besides winning a grammy for the longest album title of 2007 (just kidding, they didn't), Andrew Jackson Jihad are also an awesome folk punk band. And if take a look at the cover, you'll notice that there's a huge bunny (or rabbit, if you will). Why I mention this is because I believe this album is some kind of homage to fellow folk punker Pat the Bunny of Johnny Hobo and the Freight Trains. It becomes even more so apparent if you listen to 'A Song Dedicated to the Memory of Stormy the Rabbit'. This is of course awesome. Now, as far as the actual music goes it's really great and incredibly catchy. But then again I love folk and folk punk so my opinion might be slightly biased (the album has recieved excellent critical appraise however). Altough if you didn't share most of my opinions on music, you wouldn't be reading my blog, now would ya? So yeah, this album is great both musically and lyrically, definitely check this one out if you're interested in folk or punk or both.
