ABOUT THIS ALBUM

The Janet Freeway Legend: For over 25 years, the name "Janet Freeway" has been synonymous with vague dreams, obscure ambitions, half-formed wishes, half-warmed fishes, ill-spent energy, squandered opportunities and Jack Daniels. Having given the latter his walking papers, yet maintaining the addled and askew perspective so vital to Irrational Artistic Realization, jfreeway has finally recorded the songs that dwelt so long in the Mystic Haze of Unplumbed Limbo.

Have a listen. "Dare to grasp the Inherent Fab."

A Mind-Bending Work of Art!
Though I highly doubt the 18 to 24 year old sect is the target audience, I can’t help but think my generation would be more intellectually prepared to face the ridiculousness of reality after listening to this album. Perhaps it should be required material in Universities nationwide. That said, once I was done googling who the hell Lili Taylor is, I was pleasantly surprised at the wit, charm, and melodiousness in Janet Freeway’s lyrics. They would make any girl dream about having their panties liberated by a musically inclined fisherman or pirate.

Great New Artist!!
The work is unique, the lyrics interesting and exciting. This is a fresh sound, done very very well. I expected Janet to be female but this is a masculine sound somewhat like an updated Jim Morrison.

Wonderful album from a talented artist
This is a great album that I’m glad I did not pass by. Freeway touches on all aspects of relationships – the start, the end, the emotional, the physical, and a longing for Lili Taylor. The lyrics extend from the amusing and entertaining in “A Glimpse of Heaven” and “No Victims, Only Volunteers” to contemplative in “Another One.” There is a terrific live track of Freeway performing the entertaining “Lili Taylor Blues.” These are just a couple reasons to get this album. However, there are two reasons why you need this album. One, Freeway is an incredible keyboard player, which comes through clearly in “Is this Love?” Second, is “On the Clock.” Don’t take my word for it, listen to these fantastic lyrics. I’m looking forward to a follow-up album.
