CD Reviews

A prog rocker should have.
Dick Palmer | Sweden | 03/16/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Yep, the moments of impressive skills here are too many to be neglected. A well produced rock album ranging from hard to soft. Maybe i choose song #1 as the favourite. The young guitarist Peter Tolsen (b.51) was indeed a gifted player with a clear tonal range, steady bending and a solid blues rock bottom with
musicality.
(The car seen on the album was actually David Gilmour's car! (guitarist of Pink Floyd) )."
Pretty Things Enter the 70s
Morten Vindberg | Denmark | 07/05/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"More than two years had gone since Pretty Things released their previous album, the highly acclaimed "Parachute". In the meantime there had been a split-up, a change of label, Peter Tolson was new on guitar and Stuart Brooks had replaced Wally Allen, who still contributed in producing the "new" album.

Whereas "Parachute" had been greatly inspired by the Beatles, "Freeway Madness" is much more a progressive 1970`s album - a change they persecuted with the next two albums "Silk Torpedo" and "Savage Eye"

The album sets off quietly with "Love is Good". With "Havana Bound" they enter the main-stream hard-rocking sound of the seventies. Both opening tracks have been added in fine live performances as bonus-tracks.

Peter Tolson`s autobiographical ""Peter" is a fine acoustic song, which has been put together with "Rip Off Train". "Over the Moon" is for me the outstanding track; fine melody and great vocals.

Second half of the album has its highlight in the uplifting "Country Road" .

The four live-tracks are great additions to a solid album."
Very pretty

"An interesting album by the Pretty Things. One minute I think I'm listening to some smooth country number. The next minute the music changes gears and turns into heavy glam-rock with guitar solos thrown in for good measure. I guess that's the main thing that makes the Pretty Things such an interesting band overall. Pick up Freeway Madness for something exciting and refreshing."
