FreePeople is a late-romantic yet honest popcultural response to the peak period of such acts as Boyz 2 Men or East 17 of the early and middle '90s, now consorted though with a type of legit lounge hip hop, which weighs in highly compatible with delivering submachine gun rhymes as an attempt to demonstrate high value towards the neighboring representatives of the opposite sex. The music is safe-, family and girlfriend friendly, and the presented musical accessibility is spiced up both by competent secondary ornamentics - got to love the Blade Runner synths in the track called "GoodBye" - and by passionate emotional delivery that sounds to be out there to affect the lady/slut switch in females, and it is up to listener to determine the success level of this intent.
While the individual romantic tracks contain the exact harmonic passages you'd expect to hear from an effort of similar agenda, the band emerges armed with its most mature and most relevant form whenever they choose to emphasize the lounge hip hop connotation of their trade. Read on to know more about this.
FreePeople has a tendency to excel with whatever tempo/demeanor they seek to flatter, as it becomes evident via the track called "Rock Your Body". This is the most vibrantly paced track of the current palette, and probably the most colorful of the bunch. The song manages to accomplish the seemingly impossible as it simultaneously summons "2 Unlimited" and a tint of "Faith No More", and the minor production deficits that permeate the track, interestingly enough, convey a sense of visceral rawness to the overall shape of things.
As noted, the palette has its fair share of romantic songs, emerging committed to channel from the same fields Ten Sharp's great soul-infector track "You" comes to you - TUKK! - from. During the love songs, the secondary sonic ornamentics are more successful than the lead singing, unfortunately. Not because of a lack of talent, but because of a massive dependency on pitch correction. This painfully evident algorhythm reigns rampant, evident on the trio's latest romantic songs to date. Though I'm pretty sure that the appeal of the love songs would automatically double had the ensemble deliver a no-pitch correction version of each, the said pieces still are enjoyable. FreePeople is a band that has a good amount of routes to choose from, and I personally think that they look best when both the rap and the ambitious - but non-pitch-corrected - emotional singing is prominent per a build.
