Album Review

Freur's debut album was an ambitious but uneven experiment in early techno, a set of synthesized beats and keyboard riffs. Occasionally, as on the title track, there was enough quirky humor and hooks to make it an enjoyable exercise in dance-floor grooves, but the record just as often meandered around in an attempt to find the appropriate sonic textures. Since Freur eventually evolved into Underworld, Doot-Doot is an interesting piece of history, but judged as music, it pretty much stands as a fitfully entertaining artifact of its time. [Oglio's reissue contains a handful of singles and 12-inch mixes as bonus tracks.]

Bittersweet

Truly a terrific album. It was almost accidental luck that I discovered it. It is an example of techno-pop in its early stages, though utterly sincere. None of the songs feel like throw-aways (except for My Room perhaps). Songs like Doot-Doot and All Too Much have an epic, yearning quality that really plays out especially well with the songs' endings. What makes it bittersweet is that this incarnation of the band was reformed into Underworld, which abandoned some of the songwriting and craft and slipped into all out techno/dance music--there will never be more output like it. If a miracle occurs, please put Freur's second album on iTunes. Truly though, one of the best records I will ever own.
