Jeremiah Freed - 2002 Jeremiah Freed

ARTIST: Jeremiah Freed
ALBUM: Jeremiah Freed
LABEL: Republic/Universal
SERIAL: 4400170572
YEAR: 2002


LINEUP: Joe Smith - vocals * Nick Goodale - guitars * Jake Roche - guitars * Matt Cosby - bass * Kerry Ryan - drums

TRACK LISTING: 01 Stranded * 02 How They All Got Here * 03 Again * 04 Rain * 05 Wait For Me * 06 Curtains * 07 Eyes. Life.Change * 08 Out of Trust * 09 Wash Away * 10 Reasons * 11 Ginger * 12 Can't Live


The name hints at the kind of classic rock bands that have influenced this Portland (Maine) five-piece, and the music confirms that Jeremiah Freed obviously spent their formative years rummaging through their parents' record collections. Yet these influences are welded to a contemporary post-grunge modern rock sound and the end result is an enjoyable if slightly flawed album.

The Songs
Things kick off with the blistering 'Stranded', an initially muted song that powerfully bursts into life, followed by the mid-paced 'How They All Got Here'. Single release 'Again', is the album's commercial highlight, and some good-old-fashioned shredding courtesy of supremely talented guitarist Nick Goodale is found on 'Eyes. Life. Change'. All good stuff, but the problem with Jeremiah Freed is a disappointing second half. Tracks like the uninspiring, forgettable 'Out of Trust', 'Reasons' and 'Can't Live' plod on lamely although the acoustic 'Ginger' mixes things up a little.

In Summary
Overall, a solid, if unspectacular debut.
