4.0 out of 5 stars Multi-Purpose Tool
Freeland (aka Adam Freeland : dj, producer, composer)
turns in a fine collection of new material with 'Cope'.

With a heavyweight bunch of friends and associates he has
created twelve well-hung beefy pieces to fall around to.

It's a big sound with big intentions. Mr Lee (drums) and
Mr Ramirez (bass) lay down a solid rhythmic foundation...

Average! What happened to the Adam Freeland I once loved?!! And this isn't a case of being stuck in a sound, its a case of ruining ok music with pointless and poorly written vocals. Please to all electronic music producers out there: sometimes its nice to just get a groove on without someone wailing over the top.

Freeland (aka Adam Freeland : dj, producer, composer)
turns in a fine collection of new material with 'Cope'.

With a heavyweight bunch of friends and associates he has
created twelve well-hung beefy pieces to fall around to.

It's a big sound with big intentions. Mr Lee (drums) and
Mr Ramirez (bass) lay down a solid rhythmic foundation for
Messrs Santiago and Bevilacqua's dangerous guitars and
the maestro's swooping, whooping synthesisers.

Vocal duties are shared with Mr Baumann getting the
largest portion. He makes a particularly good job of
the wonderfully grinding 'Strange Things'.

The sensuous Brody Dalle, from Spinnerette and legendary
Gerald Casale of Devo fame perform convincingly on 'Borderline'
and 'Only A Fool (Can Die)' respectively. The latter is
one of the album's highlights. The thrashing pace and
Mr Casale's deadpan delivery are nothing short of delicious.

Elsewhere 'Mancry', with its hypnotic dirge building slowly to
an epic conclusion, knocks spots off Mr Reznor's recent mis-hits.
Mr Lee's drum-work is especially exhillarating here and again on
'Rock On' with its juicily reinvented cliches; a ripe peach of a song.

'Best Fish Tacos In Ensenada' wins top prize for silliest title.

'Wish I Was Here' rounds off the project in widescreen splendour.

Music to drive to. Music to dance to. Music to make love to.

That's my kind of multi-purpose tool.

Highly Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars ...block rocking beats and David Essex! Winner..., 20 Jun 2009

This review is from: Cope (Audio CD)
Adam Freeland, for tis he, has set himself up against the big boys here, with some heavy names being dropped on the PR bumph. Claims that it's on a par with the likes of Leftfield's "Leftism", The Prodigy's "Fat Of The Land" and Daft Punk's "Discovery" leave him wide open for a reviewing onslaught.

Factor in some very special guests, with Joey Santiago from the Pixies, Marilyn Manson and Nine Inch Nails man Twiggy Ramirez, Brody Dalle from the Distillers, Jerry Casale from Devo and the ever well endowed Motley Crue tubthumper, Tommy Lee, and expectations are high. Shame then that opener `Do You' is pish-poor.

However, once `Under Control' arrives, bringing with it some might big beats, things start heading upwards at a remarkable rate of knots. For sure, it's a real mish-mash, which means it might actually be difficult to sell to the dance market who should be the natural audience for this, but if you can handle electro-goth with your block rockin' beats, then this could turn out to be one of your favourite albums of the year.

Oh, and watch out for the David Essex as dirty old man cover version, `Rock On'. A definite number one, if I've ever heard one.

4.0 out of 5 stars It Grows On You, 23 Jun 2009

When I first listened to Cope, it was a 2, maybe 3 star album at best in my opinion. However, now I've been listening to it for a couple of weeks, there are some cracking tunes here. Contrary to another reviewer, I think the only let down is "Rock On", the David Essex cover. If you liked "Now And Them", give this a try.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cope (Audio CD)
I brought this album on a whim being a very small fan of Adam Freeland and I was shocked how good is was! To the point where this is now in my top ten all time best albums i've ever listened to.

Stand out tracks for me are 'Do You', 'Morning Sun', and 'Borderline'

everyone needs to hear this album at least once in there life
