My favorite ballad was "Edward". Its based upon this man, who happens to be interrogating another man and threatening him with a knife. It is quiet a strange poem, but an interesting one. He keeps pushing the man, giving him more and more questions. There is a lot of parallelism, which has became a familiar theme in all of these balladmonger's including Gallows Pole. Another important theme is depression, I've noticed how all these balad's have been really sad, which can sometimes be a good thing or a bad thing. I've also noticed that all of the Ballads have some meaning behind it, unlike some raps songs where it is just a guy cursing. But overall, I am starting to like ballads. Although this one may be a bit strange, I still recommend it to anyone.
