This is my first Fridge album, which I was drawn to courtesy of a love of recent Four Tet and Adem albums. Needless to say, I was delighted to find it was pretty much what I had expected/hoped for - a half-way point between the two.
This is a creative masterclass that rarely slips into self-indulgence. Broken beats, hypnotic patterns and even wayward guitars. That always adds up to a winning formula to this listener.
If you're into left-field experimentation that doesn't disappear up its own rabbit hole then Fridge will probably work for you too...

something like love... 13 Sep 2007
By Elevate Difference - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I listened to The Sun for the first time, I immediately fell asleep. This may sound like an insult, but it is far from it! It was the best nap I've had in a while.

The album starts off with its title track, a drum-driven opener that is moved along by an ancient sounding whistle that resembles the noise that would pour out of a spaceship. The song blends into the second track off the album, "Clocks," which takes a while to speed up to its smooth rhythm guitar and dreamy xylophones that are reminiscent of the band Tristeza. It's hard to not make a comparison, since both Fridge and Tristeza lack vocals and rely primarily on guitar driven harmonies. The only track on The Sun that includes any sort of vocals is "Lost Time," which has a build up drums and piano accompanied by the harmonized humming of the band.

The only fast paced song on the album is "Eyelids," with its thick bass lines and teetering guitars. It jolts the album forward but strays away from its originally soft, yet drum heavy, sound throughout. Overall, The Sun is the sort of album that you could easily not have an opinion about. I'm still unsure whether I love it, but I do know that there is something about it that I like. It's the kind of album you could listen to at night and will lull you to sleep (in a positive way).
Fridge - The Sun 27 April 2011
By scoundrel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Fridge returns with _The Sun_, another foray into the complexities of post-rock. So even while the title track sounds skeletal -- percussion, flute and feedback -- it segues into the more melodic "Clocks" and the understated "Our Place in This." The drum machine, piano chords and electronic squeal of "Comets" propels us into outer space, but in the overall album, something seems to be missing. Sure, the country twang of "Years and Years and Years..." is lovely, but the same sense of discovering beauty and sustaining it just doesn't seem to be there. Maybe it just got momentarily hidden by the sun.

I wish I could give it 4.5 stars. I think the music is very well written. Each track is different from the previous by using different instrumentation. Good sound quality. I believe it is all home recorded. :)

Haed on the ears 20 April 2012
By Nakedgun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After enjoying "Happiness" I wanted to explore more of their work, but alas, their cretive talent has waned. This music is disjointed, uninspired and difficult to listen to. I will sell this CD to recover a portion of my loss. Not recommended.
