Fretblanket matures on "Home Truths From Abroad&qu

"Score another victory for the English 4 piece Fretblanket. These guys, (who were only 17 when they released their debut album "Junkfuel") have definitely come of age on "Home Truths From Abroad." If catchy, modern guitar driven rock is your thing, you should definitely pick this one up. Vocalist Wil Copely and lead guitarist Clive Powell, both show amazing prowess in their craft, and I can honestly say that as a band, you would be hard pressed to find a better group of songwriters. ~ From the opening notes of the upbeat "Into the Ocean," until the last notes of the far too short "Me & the Stars," Fretblanket will grab you hook, line, and sinker. If you like this one, I definitely recommend their first CD "Junkfuel," which is my absolute favorite CD of all time. Give these guys a listen, you'll thank yourself. Where are they now? If anyone can tell me, please drop me a line at"

"I picked this up for the single Into The Ocean cuz I couldn't find it on MP3 and was amazed at how good this album is - I even bought their prior release. At 1st I just listened to that song (#1) but sometimes I could not get to my Cd player to change it or forgot after that song was over and soon I thought 4 was a great song. Then 5. Then 9. Then the whole CD when I actually listened too it. Great range from acoustic (Killer, Stars) to rock-out (Hammer, Supercool) to everything in between (Sleep). I have my CDs in an album in order from best to worst and this CD is in the #1 spot. Example of hugely overlooked yet extremely talented band. Highly recommended!"
Who's heard of Fretblanket!?

"Definitely one of those bands you have to stumble across or hear about from a friend. It's well worth the stumble. One of the best CD's that I have listened to within the last two years. It has everything you could possible want on an album."
