CD Reviews

Great progression

""Marvin" was a great album, but so is "Shape." Angie gets more involved with the song-writing process, and I think it shows (in a very good way). The sound is still all Frente, but it's a slightly different treat."
Some hits for the future

"I share with most of the other reviewers the feeling that "Shape" is a great album. "Goodbye goodguy" and "Sit on my hands" are great songs. However, I would like to stress that "Shape" includes some pure pop gems (read "pop" as a praise, not as a criticism), that some future movie or radio show will be able to transform into #1 hits. Before this happens, listen to "Burning girl", "The destroyer", "So mad" and above them all, to "Jungle". Perhaps you are the future director of the moviethat will lead this underrated album to its deserved place!"
Trying too hard...

"...It seems as if Frente! thought that they may not have been taken seriously enough after their charming but breezy Marvin the Album, so they needed to make a point here.The seemingly obvious result of this need to be serious is the dirge-like opening cut, "Sit on my Hands." "Sit on my Hands" is a dark and plodding tome that robs the listener of any of the cheery expecations they might have had going in.The album brightens up considerably later, but never hits the same easy stride that Marvin did.Perhaps this is a classic sophomore slump, but it is also possible that Marvin was just a lucky of convergence of wit and whimsy that is unlikely to be repeated."
