5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album by the crazy 3., 26 July 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Freaked Out & Small (Audio CD)
I was apprehensive about this, hearing the guys were going to use standard instruments. And I have to say my expectations were exceeded - this is an excellent album, while they don't sing about frogs, peaches and toy cars any more they still rock more than ever.
Catchy riffs, a good beat - but more of a matured sound yet still with thier signiture sound. Musically, it's impressive - some great guitar work here, very blues/soft rock influenced with the classic PUSA sound. Good drumming and bass guitar work too. Lyrically, it's more mature than past albums (although still amusing, "Jazz Guy" and "Meanwhile Back in the City" are proof of this).
If you have thier self titled album, II and Pure Frosting, you *must* get this album. You'll love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars PUSA are back and still rokin'!, 7 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Freaked Out & Small (Audio CD)
We all thought The Presidents had packed up for good. Then they released an MP3, "Jupiter", under the name of "The Quitters". And now... now they've re-formed to bring us "Freaked out and Small"! An album of new material, half of which is written by Chris Ballew (Bass, Lead Vox) and the other by Dave Dederer (Guitar, BGVs). It's great, as usual, but a bit short. They've dropped their trademark Bassitar and Guitbass in favour of traditional instruments, but they're still churning out top-quality tracks. My favourites at present are "Death Star" and, well, every other track. A must-have for any PUSA fan. And if you're not a fan, buy this and you will be. Oh yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Superb, 3 July 2001
By 
This review is from: Freaked Out & Small (Audio CD)
This album is like the rest of the presidents albums....superb. It's got the same PUSA style as before although they do now play full instruments. All songs are above average, but songs like Jupiter, Tiny Explosions, Tiger Bomb, Nuthin But Luv, Death Star, Superstar, Meanwhile Back in The City, Blank Baby, all stand out, (thats most of the songs). This album gets better and closer to perfect with every listen. If you like PUSA you'll love it.

i felt really lucky to find this and was thrilled the moment i put it on, having heard the other 4 pusa albums first i can seriously say this is some of their best work. tigerbomb is a cool love song and the demo version gives it an extra twist.
my favourite tracks are jazz guy, Jupiter, blank baby and death star. "you were there greatest weapon ever manufactured.
if you love what pusa have don in the past and recently, you will love this album as it has some of their greatest work on it. 5 peaches out of five
