Break Free

How would you guys feel about Break Free making the new album? Now I know Dave plays an Electric on the song and to some of you people that means its automatically bad, but honestly the West Palm beach show that was on AOL 2 years ago had a great performance of Break Free, and personally when I saw DMB at Hershey (6/23/06) I enjoyed Break Free a whole lot more than Shotgun.

Re: Break Free

The lyrics need complete reconstructive surgery. The main guitar riff is nice though, and Rashawn is great at the end.

Re: Break Free

Yea your right, for the most part the lyrics need some reworking, (I think the chorus is awesome how it is though) and I could see Dave scrapping this song all of last year, to just work with it and fix the lyrics, and I wouldnt be surprised to have a completely revamped version this year.

Re: Break Free

I think the lyrics could use a very very minor tweak. I really enjoy this song.

Re: Break Free

Re: Break Free

I'm glad they realized this song was a "fun for a few times" tune. Nothing more. It's really no different than Louisiana Bayou. Simple music, shitty lyrics, kind of cool the first couple times but quickly gets annoying.

Re: Break Free

I love love love the chorus of this song. I know it's got basically no shot of making the album, but I would 100% prefer it over the mediocrity that is IOU. I think if they reworked the verses it could be really great, but definitely not holding out hope for it to make it.

Re: Break Free

I enjoyed it when I heard it in 06.. don't really listen to it anymore, kinda meh about it. The trumpet solo at the end was awesome though

Re: Break Free

I like this song. If it was the worst song on the album, I'd be satisfied. I wonder if it'd be better on an acoustic, maybe even on a 12 string.

Re: Break Free

IMO, Break Free is a good song, obviously since it hasnt appeared on a studio album yet, its no finished product. Shotgun - I loved the 06 debut version because I heard the potential it held and the Summer Tour 07 Sampler version is amazing, people are making a big deal out of it because we are watching it grow into something good, one of my all time favorite songs.

The bottom line: Break Free should appear on the 2008 album.

Re: Break Free

Musically, I like this song, and wouldn't mind it on the album if the lyrics got a re-write.

That is by no means degrading Break Free (I still believe the debut was one of the highlights of the 06' tour), but I really think KTK can turn into something special...if it's done right.

Love the chorus, not so thrilled about the verse though.
