    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.
