"Tempering their bar band R&B with a touch of new wave pop production, the J. Geils Band finally broke through into the big leagues with Freeze Frame. Fans of the hard-driving rock of the group's '70s albums will find the sleek sound of Freeze Frame slightly disorienting, but the production gives the album cohesion. Good-time rock & roll remains at the core of the group's music, but the sound of the record is glossier, shining with synthesizers and big pop hooks.

"With its singalong chorus, 'Centerfold' exemplifies this trend, but it's merely the tip of the iceberg. 'Freeze Frame' has a great stop-start chorus, 'Flamethrower' and 'Piss on the Wall' rush along on hard-boogie riffs, and 'Angel in Blue' is terrific neo-doo wop. There are still a handful of throwaways, but even the filler has a stylized, synthesized flair that makes it enjoyable, and the keepers are among the band's best." —

This album takes me back to the 80's when it was released. At the time it was one of my favorite albums. This is by far the best sounding digital version of this album I've ever heard. The stereo imaging is great, a very full sound on most tracks and like most higher quality recordings when you put them into the DSD format it just sounds great. I'm hearing things that my 80's system just couldn't reproduce, which is almost like listening to the album for the first time again. Highly recommended!
