Freddy Charles I’m Only Human Wraps Up The Rock Genre and More With Relative Ease
“I’m Only Human” pushes you through 13 songs, all of which stand on their own as singles. Right when you think you’ve got this one figured out, a track like “I’m Only Human” plays through some incredible moments of jazz and rock fusion that you’ll have to hear to believe. This talented musician doesn’t just go through the motions of creating a song, he paints a picture for the listener with multiple elements working together, and yet not working together. It’s not chaos, it’s the same kind of impact that Eddie Van Halen had on those classic guitar solos, and it just works here. It’s like a showcase of what you can do with a song as your paint brush.
The rest of the album works well too, it’s not an isolated kind of musical endeavor here. Freddy Charles finds a way to unify all rock styles, and even include jazz style options, without losing the focus on production. It’s an impressive, weighty album of sounds. You’re not going to find other records that fill the spatial plane quite like this one. Whether you’re a fan of the 90s, or you’re more into punk or hardcore, there’s something to love on this record for everyone. If you like music, you can’t go wrong with this one. There’s just so much that comes through with the 13 tracks, and over an hour of music. I’m impressed, that’s for sure. This is one record you can’t miss out on. This is the type of art rock record that should be getting mainstream success, because it’s eclectic, solid, and true to the alternative label and so much more. Don’t take my word for it, listen to it, you’ll be impressed.
