Free Verse 
By Joannie Foney

This album sounds so good on its own merit that I hate to bring gender into the review. But having said that, let me express my relief that, cool chicks can rock! (I hope I don't get beat up for writing that.) The 3 punker girls comprising Free Verse scorch their indelible mark onto the alt-punk scene with the release of "Generator", their 2nd full length album. These socially conscious activists have lent their talent to various causes such as AIDS Awareness, police brutality, prison literacy and women's homeless shelters. I wonder if the backers of these events became terrified by the audience suddenly turning into a writhing, spasmodically jerking mosh pit full of freshly minted Free Verse Appreciators. 
"Generator" should be sought out by anyone who likes punk music, or metal, or indy, or whatever. This album skillfully straddles these musical genres effortlessly & melodically. If the slower song & parts on the album kind of struggle, rest assured the reason is that these players like to rock. The well played instruments, the shared vocal duties, the original and excellent songs that rock hard all make for an album that can't help but to seize your attention, and not for the sake of novelty. With this release, Free Verse should lose their title as the most underrated, unappreciated band in recent history. Maybe so many sub- standard, all- girl, flavor of the month type bands have forever tainted people's perceptions of how a girl band sounds. To cynically pass over this CD for that reason would almost be criminal.
