This is a patchy album in truth, but the single from it, 'Love' is one of the best techno tracks Slater's ever created, it's simply immense... The album is worth the price for that track alone, especially here as it comes bookended by two moody pieces which set it up perfectly...

Apart from that, all I can say is in contrary to other reviews this is FAR from Luke Slaters debut album!!!

Check out his GPR releases, the mesmeric 'The 4 Cornered Room' and 'My Yellow Wise Rug'. Two of the best IDM albums EVER RELEASED. Get them first, then come back for this...

Slater's debut album is robust-sounding techno, which is surprisingly varied at times, not as 'full-on' as 'Wireless' and mostly suited to home-listening. It is very tense and intense the whole way through, with plenty of bridging tracks being pure white-noise or ambient meandering - both of which sound like they are straight from a superb, chilling sci-fi flick about Government corruption. There aren't enough real stand-out tracks for this to be considered a classic, but on the other hand there are no real duffers here either. The pick of the bunch is 'Love', which is a superb, rushing, tech-house track which provides a brilliant climax to the album. The album has a similar spooky feel to many of DJ Shadow's songs, such as 'What does your Soul look like? Part 2' and 'Stem/Long Stem', without ever quite reaching those same heights. A worhtwhile buy for even a half-hearted techno fan.

A variety of sounds. 15 Feb. 2001
By "portis@roadrunner.nf.net" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Luke Slater's third full length encompasses many different flavours of electronic music. He dabbles in funk, techno, leftfield, and house throughout the course of the cd's 75 minutes.
There's a pretty slim chance that people will like this cd from start to finish, as some parts may be too repetitive, too long, too funky for their liking. At the same time there are sure to be something here for everyone; be it the techno repetition of 'Engine One' or the funky beat driven title track or the lazy bassy 'Walking the Line'.
The 15 tracks on Freek Funk represent Luke Slater's talents well. Catch this release instead of the less interesting Wireless.

Luke Slater - 'Freek Funk' (Nova Mute) 12 Dec. 2004
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
'Freek Funk' is a damn fine CD, that is if you like techno. Sort of reminds me of Future Sound of London. Slater has apparently been a DJ on the British club scene for some time now. After listening to 'Freek Funk', I can see why. I was impressed with the tracks "Purely", "Are You There?", "Time Dancer" and "Walking The Line". This CD would be ideal to play at any bar, dance hall or club that caters to fans who appreciates this genre.

This is NOT an ambient album... 17 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have no idea how someone could think of this as an ambient album... it's purely a techno record, with quite audible 4/4 beats on just about every track. The previous reviewer must be into Goa or something. I like it, don't get me wrong. But don't buy it thinking it's going to be like Luke's much more sedate outting "the 4 cornered room" (still with beats, and good as well).

I urge every boy and girl to buy this killer album. 19 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is really a thing of art. I actually thought it too monotonous at first, but after a couple listens, I just fell in love. By the way, Love, track 13, is the reason I bought the album. It is an incredible experience. buybuybuy
One Cool Ambient Album 14 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I like this CD, even though I'm not a very big ambient fan myself, but Luke's sound is pretty good. Its got alot of simple ectronic synth sounds and simple beats, I wouldn't say its one of my favorite albums, you'll just have to listen to it your self. Check out the songs "Freek Funk" and "Purely", their my fav's. I like to fall asleep to this CD (when I do sleep, and thats rare). I'm thinking of doing some remixes of his songs... hummm
