OK, I’ve been listening to OSI‘s Free a few weeks now and just received the special edition from Burning Shed today, so it’s time to review. The album is great. Is it better than the debut release? No, it’s different. There’s not a song on here that strikes me the way “Head” does, but that’s OK. My favorite tracks right now are “Free”, “Go”, “All Gone Now”, and “Kicking”. The weakest track for me so far is “Bigger Wave”. Gotta love the banjo on the acoustic closing track “Our Town”.

Jim Matheos and Kevin Moore have put together another solid album. It’s got enough riffs, groove, and vocal effects to keep your ears busy. The songs are so layered that there’s lots of sound to discover with each listen. Highly recommended.
