Freddie Nelson - Shake The Cage

.
A recent Forbes article told us rock no longer the most popular genre. It's the first time this has happened since Nielsen Music began measuring stylistic popularity back in 1991. Just one ear to pop radio will tell you this is true. Nobody told Freddie Nelson this, though, because he loves rock & roll - as much, if not more than Joan Jett.

Shake the Cage is a strong rock & roll album. It features plenty of amplified guitar. Nelson also sings like a lovable maniac throughout. He has an expressive vocal range, which can sound soulful ("Hey Doll") at times, and classically Freddie Mercury rocking in other spots.

Nelson's rock & roll is not metal or punk. Instead, it's fairly clean sounding, and always melodic. Nelson never sacrifices a tune you can hum, for volume's sake. These are rock songs with hooks, which really ought to find a home on radio. Ah, but there aren't enough open spots on radio playlists unless you're, say, a pop diva collaborating with an EDM DJ. Let's hope these days are numbered.

"Never Fight Alone" opens with a spoken voice asking, "Whatever happened to decent music?" Freddie Nelson has created a collection of songs that are far better than decent. Shake that cage, Freddie! The world really needs your aggressive passion right now.
