    I always find it fascinating how people try and describe music in some highly intellectual way. In the end they end up misrepresenting what the music itself is and what it was historically. To put it simply the Freur debut album Doot-Doot was New Wave/British Pop. Nothing more, nothing less. SiriusXM 1st wave plays the title track on light rotation and it fits right in with the other music from the 2nd British Invasion. Doot-Doot is a well written and produced song but let's be honest, in 1983 it had no chance to compete with all the other top tier artists and songs. It doesn't take a genius to figure out why Thriller and Toto IV were at the top and Doot-Doot wasn't.

      postpunkmonk says it all very well below.

      Freur is one of those one-hit wonders. They did produce a second Freur album, but it is wildly different to Doot-Doot. I can't imagine what this record would have done to me if I listened to it when I was six (like sergiocalzone below). But I do remember the first time I heard it, teenaged and record-collector mad, I walked into a friend's room and he said, "listen to what I found". We thought it was a gem.

      It's really strange, the record didn't do well - was even picked on - it's all about timing. Maybe the distributors knew such dream-pop couldn't be so easily mass produced, so they invented Underworld. lagerlagerlagerlagerlagerlagerlager very boppy, but not Freur.

      It's still the best thing to pull out and play when you want to close your eyes . . .

        The title-track of this album permanently marked my taste for electronic music. I remember I was seven years old when my father recorded from the radio to tape the song "Doot-Doot". I couldn't stop listening to this track, every time I pressed the play button a storm of emotions went through my body with shivers on my back and goose bumps on my skin! Thanks Freur for making me discover my innate passion for electronic-emotional music and for being the impulse to start making music on my own.
