I usually look for the music in the credits.
Marcus Rhodes
I have bought the CD because of the extra bonus songs that are remix version of "doot doot" as advertised but when the CD came it was a different version of the CD.
Almighty Jammer
Generally good stuff all the way through, although I was hoping for a bit more lyrically here and there.

I stole this album (on vinyl, natch) from my brother in about 1984 (I was 10) and I distinctly remember hearing Matters of the Heart as well as Doot-Doot (the song) on pop radio at the time. I listened to that album all the time; it was a favorite for a long time. Years later, I completely forgot about it. I just accidentally ran across this reissue the other day in a record store; boy, did it take me back. I still love this album. The production and arrangements are sheer poetry, as well as being viscerally exciting; the same goes for the near-literary-quality lyrics. The singer's voice (whoever it was, there are no performance credits) is delightfully vivid; same goes for some subtly expressive synth work. The only two reasons I'm not giving this CD 5 stars are: 1)the mastering is awful. It sounds like this disc was pressed directly from the vinyl-compressed tapes. 2)the two bouncy-rhythmed "bonus tracks" (b-sides from the singles?), while not horrible, do not fit in with the generally "lusty" atmosphere of the rest of the album (there is an undercurrent of S&M, or some such, to some of the lyrics; was I aware of that when I was 10? Ask my therapist! 8-) With those two caveats in mind, I heartily recommend this album to music fans of any sort.

No matter the ridiculousness of the music (be it pop, rock, techno, dub, house, industrial, new wave, psychedelic -no particular order), This band from Screen Gemz, Freur, and both the pop and techno versions of Underworld, created some of the coolest and refreshing music that stands the test of time. Albeit recent fans out there now only have ever heard the newer Underworld (1992 - 2003), it's nice that us old school hardcore fans are still here, nods Bill Skulley. Those old tapes and vinyls are worn out!!!
The re-release of Freur's Doot Doot was a wonderful surprise as most of their stuff is super rare. It's a truly extraordinary cd for it's time and reminds me of how much I truly adored Duran Duran's Rio when I first listened to it. Karl Hyde just has a rapturous voice to listen to, not unlike Simon LeBon.
When the Dubnobasswithmyheadman cd came out in '94 I was totally thrilled they didn't give up, and honestly I was ecstatic with the album...a most brilliant album...one that will never leave this boy's cd player.
I RECOMMEND ANYTHING BY KARL HYDE AND CO.

After being forced to change their name from an unpronounceable symbol (is this where Prince got the idea?) to the almost unpronounceable "Freur", the band put out this one album of oblique, trippy but quite pleasant new wave. Generally good stuff all the way through, although I was hoping for a bit more lyrically here and there. "Theme From the Film of the Same Name" adds studio audio verite to pretty good effect, and I enjoy the sea shanty-ness of "Hey Ho Away We Go". Despite its lyrics, "Doot Doot" remains my favorite track for its incredible atmosphere. OK, so it's not "Born Slippy" (actually, it's more "Underneath the Radar") but it's still pretty good stuff. Fans of atmospheric new wave should probably give this a whirl.

Not many people know of Freur (now Underworld, who alot of people know). I believe anyone who has obtained this cd is holding a real gem from the 80's. Alot better then most of the stuff out from this time period. There is just so much depth to this album. Very moody and there are two songs that are just hilariously 80's!!! But like i said, alot of depth and emotion packed in here.

I am going to use this review to concentrate on the single "Doot-Doot". Plenty of early techno like beats and nonsense lyrics is whats make Doot-Doot, yet that is not to say these synth beats are bad, it's a great example of early New Wave. To be honest i would like the song if the lyrics were just "and now we go, doot-doot" with the doot-doot in the background. Near the end some synth riffs come in, and with the 'doot-doot' in the background it sounds quite nice. The rest of the album isnt bad either.

My 80's collection would not be complete without the excellent tracks 'Doot Doot' and 'The Road'. Getting an extended version of 'Doot Doot' was the bonus that caused me to buy this CD vice a used copy of the original.. I believe it was worth it, even though there is nothing astounding in the extended version. There are no gems in the rest of the tracks. :-)

Freur, who didn't have a name, came around in the 80s and their song received airplay in the UK. I knew this song at the time, the Doot Doot Song it was called because nobody knew what to call it, but it was well-liked, at least by me and my crowd, despite the lack of lyrics, which actually made the song better - much like Transatlanticism by Deathcab for Cutie - which has few lyrics except "I need you so much closer" - the Doot Doot Song reminds me of that in some ways.

It is, for those of you who were not alive in the 80s, or don't remember the song, the song you hear as Tom Cruise rides up in the lift in Vanilla Sky with his 'technial support' from his life support services as he rides to the roof-top (an excellent choice of a song, i think, for the moment, for what it's worth.) It's the scene where Tom must make his final choice; will he face that Vanilla sky and jump or continue his journey with extended life? I won't be a spoiler if you haven't seen the film... but that song that you will hear if you do see it is the Doot Doot song by Freur (who didn't even have a name when they first started out, btw).

Somehow, their music managed to cross the Atlantic from the UK, despite sales that were not so great but mid-chart ratings which weren't so bad. I am trying to compare to the Doot Doot song to something and all i can think of is Transatlanticism in terms of that it is all music and synth and virtually no lyrics, and more, that it is a freakin' great song to drive to and to me, that counts for everything since i like to drive my lil' Mini Coop like a speedster or Penelope Pitstop ...

I don't care what anyone says - take a listen. Hey, it made my music column on the List of the Moment on Blogcritics, and that's not easy; Volume Number 21.

Cheers,

s.r.p.
