King's biggest chart success in the pop arena, "The Thrill Is Gone," provided him with a long overdue crossover hit in Using a blues-rock basis for the main melody, King casts the entire song in a very heavy jazz feel and flavor, attacking each verse with a world-weary vocal and some radical and sinewy guitar arpeggios.
The feeling of breaking free from a possessive lover is the main basis for the lyrics, and King's use of blues imagery is perfect for the song, which indeed provided real release. But its the song's overall groove that is the star here, giving the overall piece a definitive atmosphere.
