    review from Exclaim Magazine - by Stuart Green:

    Considered within the music industry as one of the most reliable and best drummers for hire, it's Freese's work as the skin basher of record for the ever-irreverent Vandals that has the greatest impact on his first solo record, especially on tracks like "Playboy Mansion," "Bloodmobile" and "Josh Freese is Ready." In fact, there's very little evidence of his time spent recording the new Guns N' Roses or A Perfect Circle records, except in a sort of affectionately mocking metal posturing kind of way on "Rock N' Roll Chicken" and "Men and Women." It is, as the title suggests, a one-man orgy of pop punk humour and mayhem. In true Dave Grohl-inspired fashion, Freese steps out from behind the kit to play almost every instrument on this 12-track (11 originals and a cover of Urge Overkill's "Queen of the Gangsters") collection as well as sing. Of course he's the guy behind the kit too. But his work with such modern day troubadours as Paul Westerberg and Chris Cornell is evident on "Caffeine & Vaseline" and his ode to the TLC chick with the patch, "Why Won't Left Eye Get With Me," as is his standing membership as the replacement drummer for Devo on "So All Under Me." Freese is not only the hardest working drummer in show business, he's a pretty decent songwriter too. Then again, after spending time with such a diverse roster of artists, it's not really that surprising. For more evidence of Freese's talent, check out the brilliant new Vandals record, Look What I Almost Stepped In, their best since 1995's Live Fast, Diarrhea. (Kung Fu)

about

Reviewed by Vincent Jeffries
"This debut from drummer-to-the-'90s-rock-stars Josh Freese delivers so much massive guitar pop that just a couple of listens will be enough to hook music fans looking to fill a hole in their collection of good-time pop-punk. With titles like "Rock and Roll Chicken" and "Why Won't Left Eye Get With Me," Freese's light-hearted solo sentiment is in stark contrast to the drummer's more celebrated employers, A Perfect Circle and latter-day Guns 'n' Roses. Headier tracks "Ass Backwards" and "Caffeine and Vaseline," while just as catchy as Freese's campier material, don't approach the musician's quirky lyrical standard. Hardly enough to exercise listeners' aural shock absorbers, these bumps in the road have the impact of a crushed frisbee. With the support of a major label and more refined production, Freese could easily realize his lyrical potential, and join Phil Collins and the similarly influenced Dave Grohl in the improbably exclusive club of former drum sidemen turned outright pop stars. All career considerations aside, The Notorious One Man Orgy is a splendid romp that provides all the pop to both satisfy and surprise fans familiar with Freese's impressive punk, new wave, and metal discography."

Track Name: Playboy Mansion
We all went to the Playboy Mansion,
Partied with the Marilyn Manson.
I think my time's arrived at last,
I was doing cocaine off Miss Octobers' Ass.

You don't believe me but it's true.
You don't believe me and you don't have to.
You don't believe me but it's true.
You don't believe me and you don't have to.
It's not the kind of shit that I'd make up.

We all went to the Playboy Mansion,
Met some girl with a breast expansion.
Saw the stupid car she bought,
and got a hand job out in the parking lot.

You don't believe me but it's true.
You don't believe me and you don't have to.
You don't believe me but it's true.
You don't believe me and you don't have to.

Don't ask me about everybody there,
but we did get drunk with that basketball guy
with the funny hair.

You don't believe me but it's true.
You don't believe me and you don't have to.
You don't believe me but it's true.
You don't believe me and you don't have to.
It's not the kind of shit that I'd make up.
Track Name: Rock n' Roll Chicken
The rock 'n' roll chicken, he had to go away
We moved him out last night to where he now will stay
He got annoying, he got too loud
For a minute there we all were proud, we were all proud

He lost against his will to one of the same kind
A modernized brother both found right at Christmas time He had a mission to wake us up on time
For a while there he was all mine, he was all mine

His hands did much more than simply play guitar
They told us what time it was much like the morning star

He didn't need no sex or drugs, just a little rock 'n' roll
He sang his heart out oh so much
That it finally took it's toll
Close to perfection for which he always strives
For a while there he touched our lives
He's on a mission to wake us up on time
For a minute there he was all mine, he was all mine
Track Name: Josh Freese Is Ready
Don't need no guidelines, don't want direction
Crash right into the intersection
Go far away, I think I could
And leave 'em high and dry in Hollywood

I heard 'em sayin' "Josh Freese is ready
He's on the brink now so keep it steady"

I want distortion
I want Slayer
I want a prostitute and not pay her
Don't cut it short or draw the line and fuck it up in 1999

I heard 'em sayin' "Josh Freese is ready
He's on the brink now so keep it steady"
If you want to tell 'em all I'm ready for 'em right away
Right away, right away, right away

I heard 'em sayin' "Josh Freese is ready
He's on the brink now so keep it steady"
If you want to let those fuckers know!

I want distortion
I want Slayer
I want a prostitute and not pay her
Don't really matter what else you say
Just tell 'em all I'm ready right away
Right away, right away, right away
Track Name: Why Won't Left Eye Get With Me?
Been a while I been checking you out
I'm head over heels, without a doubt
Watched you grow into womanhood
And now your black-ass is sure lookin' good

Oh why, oh why, Left Eye
Oh why, oh why, Left Eye

Got you at the top of my list
And you don't even know I exist
What's it take to get in your pants?
I wish so badly you'd give me a chance

Oh why, oh why, Left Eye
Oh why, oh why, Left Eye

I'd get with you girl wherever you are
Atlanta, Georgia....it aint very far
I could come and be with you forever

Oh why, oh why, Left Eye
Oh why, oh why, Left Eye

I'd get with you girl wherever you are
Atlanta, Georgia....it aint very far
I could come and be with you forever
Well, at least a week or so...

Oh why
Oh why
Track Name: So All Under Me
You're so all under me, sit right back and eat my dust
You're so all under me, close your eyes boy, if you must You're so all under me
Wanna know how'd you get that small

All the girls are bleeding down there
All the boys at home don't seem to be aware

You're so all under me, sit right back and eat my dust
You're so all under me
Wanna know how'd you get that small

All the girls are bleeding down there
All the boys at home don't seem to be aware
How'd you get under there?

You're so all under me, sit right back and eat my dust
You're so all under me
Wanna know how'd you get that small

All the girls are bleeding down there
All the boys at home don't seem to be aware
All the girls are bleeding down there
How did you get under there?
How'd you get under there?
Track Name: Caffeine & Vaseline
Caffeine and vaseline bought for my sweetheart
True love if you know what I mean
Down at the mini-mart
I'll laugh when she falls down, stop when she turns around

She wants her rabbits foot so she'll be guarded
I said "don't talk that way.....you sound retarded"
God knows that I will try
Ten bucks says she will cry, ten bucks says she will cry
Ten bucks says she will cry, ten bucks says she will cry

She thinks I'm being mean and I don't blame her
It ain't easy being green and we both know that
So what if it's obscene?
Caffeine and vaseline, caffeine and vaseline
Caffeine and vaseline, caffeine and vaseline
Caffeine and vaseline, caffeine and vaseline

My baby's big and dumb
She'll kick the shit out of everyone but me
I'm hers and she is mine
I ask her how she is and she says "fine"
It ain't easy being green...caffeine and vaseline!

Caffeine and vaseline, caffeine and vaseline
Caffeine and vaseline, caffeine and vaseline
Caffeine and vaseline
Vaseline
