Freewheeler are rock'n'rollers in the purest sense. Their bluesy, rough-hewn guitars, attitude-laden vocals and party lyrics make for an enjoyable, if somewhat nostalgic, experience.
As advertised on their website, Freewheeler's sound is somewhere between the Rolling Stones and AC/DC, with a little glam metal of the 80s thrown in for good measure. The songs are simple, effective rockers with all the usual accoutrements - infectious choruses, fiery lead riffs, songs that make you want to pump your fist and bang your head.
Of the three songs on this demo, my favorite was "Whiskey & The Pills," a pure rock anthem if there ever was one. "This Is Rock'n'Roll" is a nod to AC/DC while "Man Not A Woman" is just a strange little ditty that rocks all right but will make you say "Hmmm."
Those who like their rock'n'roll down'n'dirty will love Freewheeler.
Freewheeler: Seb, Sophie, Joe, Jim.
A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
