5.0 out of 5 stars Karl Hyde and crew have always known where they are Sept. 19 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A magnificent album! March 31 2000
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars However You Pronounce It, It's Pretty Neat Jan. 4 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars a great disappointment for the true fans.. March 23 2000
Format:Audio CD
back in 1984 the CASSETTE version of this album included their best recorded material originally found on their first two 12" singles. tracks such as "Matters of the Heart (dun diffrunt)" "You are a Hoover (dun diffrunt)" "Hold Me Mother (extended)" and "Doot Doot (extended)" are all absent from this cd, which makes it very incomplete and less than impressive. although the last track mentioned above can be found on some compilation cd's, the other three are still unobtainable anywhere, and could be lost forever if nobody does anything about it..

5.0 out of 5 stars How did I miss this for all these years? Feb. 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled across Underworld (Mk1) in the early 90's and Change the Weather and Underneath the Radar are among two of the most-played CDs I own. Somehow I missed the connection between Freur and Underworld until just recently, and I have to say this sounds just like classic Underworld - It fits nicely with the other two albums in feel and style.
I'm also a fan of electronica/trance/whateveryouwannacallit so Underworld is like the band-of-all-trades for me - I've never met an Underworld album I didn't like...
