Das vierte Album.


“This is not, as one might suppose, their third albu

it is in fact their fourth. There are, however, three Violent Femmes, an unholy trinity unwholesomely obsessed with The Bibleþs more hellfire passages. Sinning souls that they are, they rhyme lechery with leprosy (Fool In The Full Moon), fantasise murderously (the way he dogged me like I was totally a jerk, I wanted to permanently pound his prick into the dirt in Mother Of A Girl) and conclude the album with See My Ships-Marvin Gaye, he was shot by his father, O my Father have mercy on me. Singer Gordon Gano even sounds as guilty as hell-you can imagine this nerdish persona feverishly riffling through the Holy Writ in an attempt to quell the demons within. Drummer Victor Delorenzo and bassman Brian Ritchie (plus occasional sax and keyboard players The Horns Of Dilemma) summon exactly the right air of backwoods queasiness, a junkyard jugband as if Tom Waits came from the boondocks rather than the big city. Though not quite touching the standard of their masterpiece Hallowed Ground, the Violent Femmes have not yet exhausted this Wiseblood seam of Americana.” (Q)
