Format: Audio CD
Frestonia is not only the best album Roddy Frame ever made, it is the best album I own, period. Four stars denote a great album, but the full five should be reserved for a soundtrack that explores a subject deeper, more precisely, more beautifully than ever before. Frestonia is to the disillusioned head beset by the longing heart what Springsteen's Darkness on the Edge of Town was to working class life in America. Frame feels with the romance of adolescence, but observes, sighs with the adult eye: "I would still believe that paradise was there with you, stuck like glue, on the avenue." While the lyric of the denied but undeterred heart is ultimately sad, the music is gorgeous, enhancing the duality, as if the guitar is the one outlet where Frame can still express love with all the passion of innocence. Frame's ambitions are done justice by guitar-wiz producers Langer & Winstanley who meld the four piece band flawlessly while maintaining the forthright sound of a live performance. Put it all together and this is the bible for grown-ups with hearts as big as their brains, for lack of a better term.

Having just heard this record for the first time eight years after its initial release, I can't help wondering why I haven't heard it before. It's absolutely beautiful, with great songs straight through. The closest comparison I can make is to Crowded House (and Neil Finn solo). Roddy Frame (like Neil Finn, Karl Wallinger, and Lloyd Cole) appears to be one of the great underappreciated singer-songwriters of our time. Highly recommended.

i feel sorry for roddy. to make music like this and nobody cares. seriously breaks my heart. miley cyrus probably makes more money in ten minutes than roddy made his whole career. anyway, roddy writes his best stuff on this album since highland and knife. something about his tunes makes me listen to them five times a day upon arrival. i absolutely love this album. after hearing this i'm now thinking he could possibly be the purest songwriter that's ever lived. can honestly say, this is one of the few albums i'll love forever.

Frestonia saw the end of Aztec Camera as we knew it and Roddy really ended it on a high note here. This new edition comes in a gorgeous case bound book style cover, with all new liner notes and comments. There was a lot of thought put into this edition. The Bonus Tracks are from a live set and the whole album is truly a beautiful experience!
