If you're looking for an unabashedly joyous album to kickstart your summer, you could do far worse than look here. Coming on like a cross between the 70s rock of T-Rex and the powerpop of Fountains Of Wayne, Free Energy serve up platters of pure perkiness that make the feet tap and the heart swell.

Unencumbered by complexity and hipster irony, each track from spritely start to surging finish comes decked out with a rainbow-coloured smile, all wrapped up in crisp DFA production. Free Energy have mastered the art of the "na-na-naah" and "woo-woo", the handclap and the hooky chorus. For evidence of this, look no further than tracks such as 'Dream City', 'Young Hearts' and 'Bang Pop' - this last being so addictive it should come with a Government Health Warning.

A perfect soundtrack to summer house parties and barbecues, whilst it may not strictly be 'free' - more 'reasonably priced' - you cannot doubt this album's energy.

I like it. What's not to like? A bit more power to the pop perhaps but it's a fine line between the Strokes and the Feeling, if you ask me. Dig this one out, rediscover and enjoy.

I received this from Rough Trade as one of their monthly Album Club offerings. Usually these are excellent, but sadly this is not.

What you are presented with is, ostensibly, a re-run of sun-soaked Californian pop/rock, circa 1975. Unfortunately it sounds rather too like Bachman Turner Overdrive for my liking. The overriding feeling is of indie rock (which this definitely is) trying too hard to sound like something else. The effect is of a band whose heart isn't really in it, trying to fake something, which would be passable if what they were trying to fake was good in the first place. But whereas Midlake's The Trials Of Van Occupanther draws heavily on Fleetwood Mac and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, this draws on the J Geils Band. Wrong choice. There are even some very hackneyed guitar solos on this CD, which are unforgiveable whether or not they are intended to be in any way ironic.

It's kind of ok, and may sound passable in an open top car on a very sunny day, but when listening I kept thinking "these people sound like tossers". Then I saw the band photo, and they look like tossers. Sound like tossers, look like tossers - it can only mean one thing...

Best Punch In The Face Ever 10 Mar. 2010
By Chris B - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Straight up rock that goes right at you and punches you in the face and doesn't stop being awesome. All the way through. The guitars get right in your ears and won't get out and take over your mind like Kahn's ear worms. The bass gets right down, hits you in the gut and kicks you in the behind. The whole package let me sit back and enjoy it all without trying to get all emo and mopey about everything.

This album is solid all the way through; it's getting the best product from some plain decent rockers right NOW instead of from 30 years ago.

Free Energy - turned it up to 11. Still makes me drive faster than the law allows.

Dream City - made me make an illegal turn on red.

Bang Pop - someone said this was like the Ramones. I don't buy that, but I'd buy the song twice. I didn't, but I wouldn't complain if I had.

All I Know - starts out slow and inexorably picks it up like a delivery truck you don't realize is moving that fast until you're passing cops doing 80 but they don't pull you over because you're delivering a whole lotta awesome.

Bad Stuff - this is not bad stuff. great drum beat to start off. i love the effects on the guitars in this one. great lead too.

Dark Trance - starts with a guitar opening your face like a can opener. and just gets better and better.

Young Hearts - made my 6mos daughter look up and smile at me; it's fun, it's quick, it's peppy. Sounded a little like Steve Miller and Thin Lizzy. that made me repeat it.

Light Love - not really sure what this song is called, it sure isn't Light Love. whatever it is though, it's good. i'm going to say soulful, but these guys deliver so well on it that i don't feel like a dork having said that. whether we pause or make love to that sound when the dream light comes around? get out of town!

Hope Child - (actually Light Love) it's poppy. pretty sure i caught the 6mos daughter singing along. the keyboard stuff sounded incredible.

Wild Winds - (actually Hope Child) just flat out good. the wife had to acknowledge that even though she was tired of hearing it over and over. i wasn't. still not.

I'm going to say Amazon got the tracks mislabeled. This album made me put down the classic rock and really enjoy something new. Fantastic.

get infected 27 May 2010
By Samuel Gentle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When music isn't challenging, it better be fun and catchy if it wants attention. Stuck on Nothing aims for the latter path, but it does so rather unapologetically. It doesn't aim to re-invent a genre, but to continue down a familiar path that would be less enjoyable if altered. Most of the elements feel immediately recognizable, the reference points generally sticking to 90s indie rock/pop (i.e. Nada Surf, Weezer). However, the hooks and melodies are too solid for you to stop listening. Like a home you never knew you had, you sort of strangely ask yourself as you move deeper into the album, "Have I heard these guys before?"

"Bang Pop" is one of the initial standout tracks, but the album is so strong throughout that it's difficult to pick a favorite. It's the sort of song that you'd actually want to clap along to at a show even if the band didn't insist on it. Where the album does fall short is the absence of shifts in momentum. All the tracks move along at a similar casual, summer-paced speed. Additionally, the music stays pretty basic. Most tracks contain a few rock chords with the occasional fist pumping transitional solo. Again, the music was meant to be simple and not to push envelopes. It's a fairly bold move in today's constantly shifting sonic climate, yet Stuck on Nothing is enough fun to make it memorable and a mainstay in your hypothetical 5 disc changer.

Awesome Fun 17 May 2010
By Bang Potential - Published on Amazon.com
Normally I've afraid of hyperbolic praise ruining the uninitiated's initial experience of the treasure in question, but I can't hold it in. This band has had me compromised for almost a year, and after listening to the album with actually decent headphones tonight this could easily end up being my number one of 2010. Free Energy "makes life worth living" or at least much much more fun; assuming of course that you at one time loved Thin Lizzy's boys being back in taaaowne.

POP-rock of the BANGIN' variety... 23 Oct. 2010
By Iceman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There are albums out there that take a minute to grow on you. IN RAINBOWS by Radiohead, PINKERTON by Weezer, and BANANAPHONE by Raffi come immediately to mind. Wait, uh...scratch that last one, Bananaphone NEVER grew on me despite the 8 billion listens I was subjected to when my nephew was but a wee lad.

But anyway, those types of albums are kind of like scotch. That first sip tastes like pure horrible-ness, but before you know it, you're swilling three glasses of Chivas Regal a week, with a Macanudo cigar thrown in to boot.

Free Energy's STUCK ON NOTHING is NOT one of those types of albums. All the songs are immediately likeable, and sing-along-able as well. Is "sing-along-able" a word? If not, it should be.

I gave this four stars because there are a couple filler songs on this album that didn't quite speak to me, but the rest of the album is aces, I tells ya.

Check out BANG POP, ALL I KNOW, LIGHT LOVE and HOPE CHILD for a taste of what this band is all about - which just so happens to be pure awesomeness. That's what they're about - I know it to be true, they told me so themselves...in a dream.

Anyway, if you like the Cars, garage rock, and/or catchy music, then you'll dig this album. If you like terrible music, you'll hate this album. Hehe, see what I did there...

...neither do I.

God Bless!

superb FM radio guitar rock 17 May 2010
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This Philadelphia band's debut is pure fun, radio ready guitar rock with glam-pop roots, indie rock
elements & plenty of vocal harmonies. It's captivating & comfortable without being silly. If radio
was controlled by listeners rather than corporate whores, this is the sort of thing you would hear
every day. Reminiscent of Nada Surf, Thin Lizzy, Sweet, Smash Fashion, Eagles, T-Rex and
a lot of 70s radio guitar pop. Excellent, top-notch ear candy!
