For those of you that were introduced to TVP with Villians you need to go back and buy this album.

Any way - I have enjoyed this album for a good long time, and I still hear something new each time I give it a spin.

Overall, it's a little more mellow (not like "The Verve Pipe" mellow), but the lyrics still have a rock edge.

1991. Kalamazoo Michigan. The band (or at least the key elements) was then called "Jonnie with an Eye" and they often played at a bar called Ricks on the campus of Western Michigan. End of the show, Brian Vander Ark came on stage alone with just a guitar and sang "The Freshman." Then and there I said this song is top 40 all the way. I was stunned to hear so good a band playing a campus bar.
This album, originally self produced at a studio in Grand Rapids, originally had three additional songs including the accoustic, non-commercialized "The Freshman". The RCA version now available has the first 7 tracks, but it's a serious shame that version of The Freshman never got out.
But this ablum does have some excellent VP tunes from the VERY early days. "I've Suffered A Head Injury" is a brilliant slam on Vanilla Ice and "oceanside" and "ark of the envious" are also excellent.
I'll save my ancient original CD. But you should get this one.

The Freshman effort from the East Lansing, MI band. (Sound like a proper review yet?) Any way - I have enjoyed this album for a good long time, and I still hear something new each time I give it a spin. You know people who are telling you about bands that are great, but have not been signed yet? That's all I was told when I first heard this album. It's fresh, clean and most importantly, fun! Brian Vanderark's words have been discribed as 'haunting' but I think that clearly this guy just takes the time to make sure the words say something. All you have to do is look at the song titles to see that. Acting As Your Slave - Why does this song remind me of so many failed relationships? And even if you liked Vanalla Ice, you can't avoid the humor as they poke fun at 'pop' stars in the title track. Ok, so your not into heavy meaning in your lirics, well there is still somthing for you on I've Suffered A Head... All by it self, even if you only are aware of VP's 'Freshman' single - this album is a primer for rock and pop lovers across the world. I put this album on my list of 'CD's to take along if stranded on a desert island' list in 1993. (when in state wide release) If you like music that is better than basement band rock-junk while not being corprate rock - you'll enjoy this EP. If you like rock, classic rock and/or the Beatle's there is somthing for you to like.

While this album has only seven songs, it is worth every penny. "acting as your slave" is one of the most georgeous songs I have heard in a long time - and anyone who remembers the beginnings of pop-rap, like vanilla ice, and mc hammer, ... will have a chuckle to themselves as they listen to "i've suffered a head injury". The chorus of "ark of the envious" is one catchy little ditty, 'if you do not care you will not cry, if you do not dare you will not try'. Okay, the music is not as complex as the latter tvp albums, but that is part of the charm. If you enjoyed Villians, you will enjoy this album.

The gold is missing from this cd, the very original freshmen is not on this release of this cd, this is the 1995 reprint. the 1992 release has the freshmen on it, if you ever get the chance to hear it in its original form. I have the original cd as of now, and it has 3 more songs than this re-release. any takers on it or know how rare it is? anyone know what its worth. i may want to know that way i get what its worth.

My introduction to the orignal release of this cd was in the fall of 94, my freshmen year(it seems to have been released 2 years prior). This cd was holding it's own in 5 disc changers all over the Central Michigan University campus with giants Under the Table and Dreaming, August and Everything After, Tuesday Night Music Club and Four (blues traveler). Also, a little George Benson never hurt anyone.

The business of music created the 7 song mutation you see here. The Freshmen on the original is the best version. Great songs like Martyr Material, Ark of the Envious and the title track remain though and would make this a safe buy. But if you can find the original with 'Brian's Song', 'Monterey' and 'The Freshmen' get it. Obviously The Freshmen is great, but I think the other 2 songs are key compnents of a complete album.

If you are a TVP fan or someone who enjoys seeing sucessful bands when they were at their most raw you should really enjoy this album. Now if we could just re-create the feeling of hearing it in the dorms for the first time......

WOW! This is my edited review - the first was made after a week of listening. This after two months of non-stop listening. Move over Villains, this is my favorite TVP album. A Top 10, Take It To The Desert Island selection.
One song lends to another. Acting As Your Slave with perhaps the best two lines ever (the first two).
Not sure why someone would like Pop Smear (or Villains) and not like this album. While obviously coarser and less complex than those, the lyrics, driving drums and guitar, and seeds of future creativity are all there. Brilliant stuff.
If you can, try to get the original album (you will have to get it used) - the acoustic version of Freshman is a great alternative to the later Villains' version, and there are two other songs also not on the current version.
