FREEMAN is Aaron Freeman's first album of original material since disbanding Ween and getting sober, but it's not a record mired in its maker's private struggles. It's a collection of gorgeous, subtly offbeat songs. The lush psych pop of "...Stallion"; the melancholy plea of "More Than the World"; the unflappable, Plastic Ono Band esque blues-rock of "Gimmie One More." FREEMAN distills the Aaron Freeman aesthetic equal parts wonder & malaise, frankness & mysticism, defiance & vulnerability to its headiest essence, proving that this man, known for so long by another name, is finally free.

In a recent interview, Aaron said he'd been listening to a lot of Paul McCartney before he wrote the music for this album. And, it definitely shows on a few tracks. Far from stealing, though, it seems more an homage laced with love and respect. This is perfectly natural if you are familiar with Ween's history of style emulation. And, it's done so beautifully here, that Sir Paul himself would likely fall in love with it, too. You'll hear hints of Lennon, Bowie and XTC, as well.
The album, as a whole, is a love letter to all of the fans of Aaron's previous work with Ween. It offers insight, a glimple of his perspective, a taking back of the narrative that so many heartbroken fans hijacked after the break-up, forgetting what Freeman, the man, the human being, was going through. I'm glad to have him back, whatever name he wants to use. Rest in peace, Gener. Long live FREEMAN!
Some beautiful songs, some spacey, some a bit forgettable and some that sound as lovely as Paul McCartney.
I continuously listen in anticipation for "Golden Monkey" which sits on far away track 9 while "Gimme One More" drags on and I could have done without.
Even the Lyrics are actually mesmerizing and I continually seem to hear something new on each listen. There isn't much I dislike on this album, but I am also not totally crazy about it either.
I like the album, but I'm not getting a 5 star blow me away, I'll never forget, to be a classic, you gotta own this! feeling that others seem to have.
I'm thinking four stars is generous, I would recommend to my fellow Ween fan friends as a nice addition of songs from Freeman and I hope to hear more from this fantastic artist for years to come.
