Free is an album written by a Scottish band called Twin Atlantic who formed in early 2007.
The album is about being free (of course), taking life one day at a time but also living life to the full! The album artwork is what truly interested me because I discovered that each picture is part of one of their songs in the album. For example, I believe the gas container is a take on the song ‘Free’ named after the album because the lyrics include; “I set my body on fire so I could be free”.
In my opinion this is such a great album and I really do love listening to it, especially when I am in a bad mood because it never fails to cheer me up. My favourite lyrics are all on the image below which was cleverly placed into the outlines of the artwork.
