Another song on Ultimatum
Freedom. Great Song
Check it out: http://www.ultimatummusic.com/mascis.htm
Thank U TomSeptember 14, 2002 at 6:36 am #52231
cool song. I was kind of worried when I heard J was going to have a song called freedom. It’s interesting to hear J do a really simplistic lead (dare I saw Sebadoheque). And the dancy beat is a departure too.September 14, 2002 at 9:44 am #52232
So two tracks in we already see a different Mascis. Gone are the rather ‘formulaic’ song constructions and instead there is a playfulness and unexpectedness. I’m not sure what I think about the rather odd way the tempo suddenly increases in both songs, for a few seconds it sounds like a mistake and the ‘tape’ has suddenly gone wrong. But it’s interesting and no one wants J to remake the same tracks again and againSeptember 14, 2002 at 11:50 am #52233
the song is growing every time I’m listening to it. It’s way not that simple as it appers on the first listen, many things to discover, very catchy guitar tune & I like the repetitiveness of it, too <img>
thanks a lot for the hint, KMB & Tom <img> <img> <img>September 15, 2002 at 12:18 am #52234
Thanks a lot for the link. Reminds me of Feel the Pain sort of. I heard Tell the Truth and was like ‘gee it sounds pretty average for him'(average being great, but still)…but this is much more impressive.September 15, 2002 at 5:21 pm #52235
Smart song thanks for the link <img> , like flying cloud said its growing each time, i wasnt sure at first with the strange tempo of it but listened to it a few times and really like it. Like the drums and the vocals guitar parts all works together reallly greeaat, *claaaps* for J <img>September 16, 2002 at 10:19 am #52236
As Spaceboy said,Thank U Tom <img>September 17, 2002 at 8:30 pm #52237
Hey there, Everybody (this is my first time here, hence the fORMAL INTRODUCTION…)!
‘Flying Cloud’ is right indeed, "Freedom" is a song that needs time to grow, and when it’s fully grown up, it’s awesome! Plus if you turn it up real loud, you can hear J coughing at the end of the track(I’m serious!)… Be prepared for greatness when the album comes out and also keep your eyes open for the supercool video for "Everybody Lets Me Down", which features multiple J’s, a girl with glasses and – if I remember right – a very "special guests" (he’s blond and "controversial").
Keep on rocking in a free so free world!September 17, 2002 at 9:20 pm #52238

LOL – welcome Pelt Sematary – looking foward to the vid!!
Think that sound at the end of the track is Bob barking. Think he rules the roost (Bob’s Place) <img>
You can hear that at the end of Can’t I Take This On from More Light as well <img>
Hope to see ya round more <img>September 18, 2002 at 3:14 am #52240
I’m downloading once more. So I’ll give my thoughts once it is done…only 22 min. to go. (56K <img> )

Thanks for the warm welcome!
Hey, maybe the "strange" rhythm of "Freedom" is a long term result from watching too much "Punk Rock Aerobics"… And, Jeremiah: no hairsplitting intended, but if that’s really Bob at the end of the song then he’s the most human-sounding dog I’ve ever "encountered" ;-), although you’re definitely right about his nice guest appearance on the "More Light" album!September 18, 2002 at 12:55 pm #52242
LOL <img>September 19, 2002 at 6:51 pm #52243
hey, how come i can only get the first 22 seconds of each of the new songs???!!! am i retarded or does my computer suck?September 19, 2002 at 6:59 pm #52244
That’s gotta hurt <img>
I just picked it up earlier today, got the whole song no problem. I did the right click, save as deal on the link, not sure if that makes a difference or not but good luck…the song is amazing!!!
Not a bad package deal Ultimatum has up, 25 bucks and you get BOTH the vinyl and cd release of Free So Free <img>
