MISERY LOVES COMPANY thrives off it's Golden Moments
(4 out of 5 stars)
"MISERY LOVES COMPANY isn't the best release by THE FREEZE but it is the one that welcomed them back after a 4 year hiatus. This lapse shows up mainly in the son and sound quality of the last 4 tracks, they are tinny and not the usual "razorsharp" quality to the lyrics. On the other hand, if the band had kept writing the way they did on the first 6 songs they would have another classic. BLOODLIGHTS has got to be one of the angriest, most depressing, yet somehow still uplifting tunes I've ever heard."
UNDERATED; EVEN FOR A FREEZE ALBUM...

I'm a big fan of this somewhat under rated Freeze record. I don't know if it's because I'm from Boston, and because I got a chance to see these guys at a pretty young age, but I've always liked pretty much everything these guys have ever done. This album was released in the early nineties, and at the time was somewhat of a comeback album for them. It has a little tinge of a pop sound on here, and POWDER ROCK AND PILLS I sware the singer Clif Hanger even starts into this funk rap sort of groove. But the album is still loud and fast, while being usually upbeat and in good spirits. The Freeze makes being angry fun, and I like that sort of thing.
If you never heard of them before, give 'em a listen. This is definately one of my favorites of theirs. Other greats on here are BLOODLIGHTS, TOO BLIND TO SEE and WHIPKISS (believe it or not.)"
