    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)

lyrics

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
