"Any promise we'd make, was as easy to break, as the plastic pieces on our wedding cake" (from Carry Me Away/last track on FREE album)
.
That was the first Concrete Blonde lyric I ever heard. Immediately I was hooked. Not just the dark and wonderfully written lyrics though... I fell in love with Johnette Napolitano's voice. I was also given the pleasure of seeing them play live at the Hollywood Palladium in 1992. Johnette was no more than 10 feet from me and I was totally in a captivated state. As great as the album recordings sound? That's the way they sound live also. I always respect a band that doesn't rely on studio mastering to obtain quality. REM's lead singer named the band Concrete Blonde due to the fact their music range varies greatly, from REAL HARD rock, to the most beautiful soft ballads, Hard and Soft at the same time. Get it? YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED buying any Concrete Blonde album, That's a fact!

Concrete Blonde's second offering has a tough streetwise edge to it from the in-your-face lyrics of "God is a Bullet", to the jaded "Scene of a Perfect Crime", to the stark reality of "Happy Birthday."
Another great album by the Blonde.

Why is it always the coolest records that go out of print? Well, if you're familiar with "Concrete Blonde", then you already know you should get this if you don't have it. Being the second album, I find it most like the debut, a little bit punk, a little bit goth, but all around excellent whatever you call it. One thing I love about them, like "Jane's Addiction", is the ability to totally rock on one song, and then create the most beautiful soft ballad afterwards. The musicianship of the band is matched only by Johnette's incredible voice. If looking for your first CB disc, I would go for "Recollection". That will get you three of these tracks, plus 15 others. "Free" is only about 33 minutes long too. Whatever you do, listen to "Concrete Blonde".

Yes, the CD is a bit short, but it's still great; a collection of brilliant, sweet songs. I've loved them for so many years. Highlights on this CD (for me) are God is a Bullet, Run Run Run, and especially the darkly sweet Happy Birthday and moody, longing Carry Me Away. Johnette is stunning as usual. This CD is amazing. Concrete Blonde, with all of their recordings, never fail to create such an atmosphere and mood with their songs. Pick this up.

1989's "Free", is a great rock and roll record. Johnette Napolitano and company give us the classic rocker "God is a Bullet", Thin Lizzy's great remake of "It's Only Money", "Help Me", "Carry Me Away" and "Scene Of A Perfect Crime"(love that song). The only weakness is it only has 33 minutes on the cd.

I agree with all of the above reviews that this is Concrete Blonde's best album, but I have to add that 'Little Conversations' is another of the stand-out tracks and blows my mind every time I listen to it (one for those quiet moments).

I remember this album well... I rummaged the used tape section at "Turk's", and had never heard of it. Around that time, "Bloodletting" was getting them a lot of airplay due to the single "Joey". And while THAT album isn't all that bad, this one was the best thing they ever put out.
The length of the CD is an insignificant complaint; the songs more than compensate, simply by being as good as they are. "God is a Bullet" was sublime... meant to be covered by every bar band on the planet (but rarely does). "Roses Grow" as a rap-esque musical beat poem works for me, and the lyrically superior "Scene of a Perfect Crime" is probably the best song in the Blonde's repetoire.
The Thin Lizzy cover is a throwaway, "Happy Birthday" will illicit a smile at first listen, and "Help Me" is a speedcore delight.
Although you can find similarly fine moments on various other Concrete Blonde LPs, this is the one to own. Chalk Johnette Napolitano as one of those singers that completely deserved to make it huge, and we're blessed that somebody took the time to record it.

Another quality album from Concrete Blonde - once again, Johnette kicks a**. God Is A Bullet is one of my favorite Blonde songs.
