Amazing Gracie is the first track off of Remember the Alamo, by Free Willy. The track draws heavily on the bluegrass and Americana genres, benefited through a modern approach to recording. The rich guitar and banjo that boost up the vocals will immediately draw listeners in to the album. Get in the Car slows things up as Free Willy inhabits the space between modern country and folk music. A hooky chorus keeps bouncing around listeners’ minds long after the album ceases to play; both the instrumental and vocal side of things play at the highest plateau throughout Remember the Alamo.
Not Your Everyday Love Song is a touching track that will be appreciated by anyone that is fortunate enough to have a long-term significant other. Rather than making the song talk about only the positives, Free Willy is able to showcase the reality of the situation – there is a bit of bad to take with the considerably larger good.
It’s Good If You Like It is a high-water mark by Free Willy on the latter half of Remember of the Alamo. The same quicker tempo that was first experienced during the first salvos of the release are utilized here to keep listeners firmly on the edges of their seats. With a slower tempo, the titular track on Remember the Alamo brings considerable narrative depth to the mix; fans will be hanging on to every note as Free Willy tells a story that’s tremendously deep.
Remember the Alamo concludes with a medley of The Star Spangled Banner and America the Beautiful. Adding just a bit of his own style to the mix, this final statement hammers home that Free Willy creates some world-class music.
