"Freakshow (Mix 13)"
Genre: alternative rock
Aug 7 2008
The second of two new Cure singles, "Freakshow"
is a brief slab of peppy Brit-pop that has some punch but all in all
is a little too cluttered. Its energy manages to cover up its lack of
a good hook for a little while, but in the long run "Freakshow" fails
to stick. I like the exuberant vocals, however I can't imagine this
one zipping up the charts too fast - sadly enthusiasm doesn't make a
"freakshow" music video
