Editorial Reviews

After hacking together a time machine from some old synths, blinky lights and duct tape, premiere U.S. electropop band Freezepop have emerged three futures later to present Future Future Future Perfect, an album carefully crafted to make you feel pretty awesome. The lead track Less Talk More Rokk appears in Guitar Hero II and is a digital download sensation.

With a wry sense of humor displayed in their music and live shows, the Boston-based Freezepop have perfected the art of serious fun. Their performances, designed specifically to counter the boring dudes behind a keyboard reputation of many electronic bands, are filled with keytars and other wonderful electronic gadgetry, fan participation, snacks, crowd-surfing stuffed sharks and future perfect fun.

Opening the CD with Guitar Hero 2's "Less Talk, More Rokk" is a very tough act to follow. However, FFF Perfect, while not necessarily 'perfect', is a great electropop CD that may even introduce a few new people to this style of music.

For those not in the know, it's mostly bleeps and bloops (thanks to the mostly lo-fi instruments) that sounds like it came from Yaz or early Depeche Mode (although not as moody as the latter). While "Less Talk" is certainly a very well crafted, highly produced song, others such as the surprisingly lyrical "Balloon Thoughts" or the goofier "Pop Music Is Not A Crime" submit to the earlier techno flavor mentioned earlier. "Do You Like My Wang?" is really just a silly play on a pun, while "Swimming Pool" is surprisingly lucid and touching.

As a whole, there are not really any songs that are clunkers here, but this style of music is not everyone's cup of tea. You may want to listen to the snippets linked here on Amazon, or head over to Freezepop's website (freezepop.net) for a few full songs (free to listen to). "FFF Perfect" is a supreme example of this style of music full of good beats and memorable melodies; just know what you are purchasing first. No one wants another shiny $12 coaster.

FREEZEPOP is a synthopop group with a female singer with an occasional male vocal. FREEZEPOP's compositions often contain real tunes and interesting varieties of rhythms and chord changes. In contrast, the compositions of most other synthopop groups are just as brain-numbingly predictable as the noises expelled from the signal at a railroad crossing. Liz Enthusiasm is the singer of FREEZEPOP, and she provides this group's signature sound, which consists of a whispy soft melodies. The whispy soft melody, at its best, can be found in POP MUSIC IS NOT A CRIME and DO YOU LIKE BOYS. In some songs, Liz Enthusiasm's vocal is a recitative or chant (BRAIN POWER), and in one song, her contribution is like ordinary talking (AFTER PARTY).

LESS TALK MORE ROCK starts with driving synthesizers with a little motif featuring a rising progression of notes. The synthesizers are rough and driving, but not as much as found in the music of SKINNY PUPPY or NINE INCH NAILS. Then, all we hear is an electronic drum beat and the soft voice of Liz Enthusiasm. At another point in this composition, the voice is fed through a device that makes the voice sound like it comes from a megaphone.

POP MUSIC IS NOT A CRIME is the best composition, in my opinion. It begins with the soft whispy voice of Liz, accompanied mainly by electronic percussion. At one point, the voice is fed through the megaphone device. Towards the end, the synthesizers become more prominent, and here, Liz sings with a stronger voice.

FRONTLOAD is more like "space music" and not like rock'n'roll. The term "space music" refers to a genre of synthesizer music that is configured to promote relaxation, e.g., such as the music of Steve Roach or Michael Stearns, or in MUSIC FOR AIRPORTS by Brian Eno.

I definitely like this album, don't get me wrong. And I like the opening track (see all the other reviews if you don't know what I mean), but some of the other reviews are dead-on: it's not what I was expecting, coming from Fancy Ultra Fresh and Freezepop Forever.

But it's good, and I recommend it, just be aware that it's not quite the same.

Songs like Frontload and Thought Balloon are awesome, and evidence that this band is still growing and evolving. But songs like Do You Like My Wang? and Do You Like Boys (which sounds eerily like the theme song to David the Gnome) show that they're still enough of the same so that fans of the previous albums will like this one.

Ultimately, the biggest difference, and the most obvious influence, is the surprising ubiquity of guitar riffs, from games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Less Talk More Rokk is arguably one of the best songs on the album (the other being Frontload), but it's a stylistic departure from the old bleeps and bloops, and if you're looking for something like artsy synth pop, this album may not be enough for you.

I am a new fan to Freezepop. I recently discovered their latest album FUTUREFUTUREFUTURE PERFECT. Being an avid fan of synthpop music, I had to check out Freezepop's music. It didn't take me very long to become addicted to Freezepop's brand of catchy synthpop. Freezepop's music immediately made me think of early Depeche Mode but with Liz Enthusiasm instead of Dave Gahan. Unlike a lot of synthpop cds I have heard, FUTUREFUTUREFUTUREPERFECT is filled with fun, silly songs like "Pop Music is not a Crime" and "Do You Like My Wang?". The songs that really stood out for me on the album is "Frontload" and "Thought Balloon". "Frontload" is a really fun, infectious dance song. I love the crisp, synthesized beats. "Thought Balloon" is a charming ballad. The only minor flaw I found with the music is repetition other than that, I enjoyed FUTUREFUTUREFUTUREPERFECT. I look forward to hearing more from Freezepop as well as seeing them in concert this spring.

Freezepop's "we're growing up...but not all the way" album. Some old-school fans may complain that it's not jammed full of peppy poppy cartoon ditties like their earlier albums, however in terms of production, continuity, and variety, this is probably the best Freezepop album yet. Liz Enthusiasm, who previously delivered every song in doe-eyed monotone is now pushing her vocals harder in songs like "Frontload" and "Brainpower", the latter being a song about an ill-chosen band name. The album wraps up on a downbeat tone, with an ominous Moroder-like riff and a tale of stolen styling gel.

Though the album is docked a star here for being less than pefect due to the inclusion of "Do You Like My Wang", there's a 5-star import version of this album available elsewhere with "Wang" replaced by "Get Drunk With Milk", "I Think Best In Wire" and "Smoke Machine(storslagen mix)". Nab that one.

Similar to the direction taken by desperate-but-not-serious synthpoppers Joy Electric, Hyperbubble, and Femme Fatality, "Future Future Future Perfect" concentrates on keeping things on the upbeat, while taking the occasional peek into the darkness. Don't worry though, with Freezepop at the controls, the future looks bright.
