    Femme Fatale

    In 1983, the Violent Femmes' first recording, and certainly their most prolific, had the underground world in an uproar, becoming the first album to ever reach platnum status without once making the Top 100 charts. With the release of "Violent Femmes", the band made musical history, as well as changed the way musicians approached vocals. A swaggering voice and a dirty t-shirt lead the revolution, and Gordon Gano was nothing short of genius on songs such as "Promise" and "Gimme The Car". With much sincereity, I give this beautifully crafted piece five stars.

    The Best Violent Femmes Recording

    This has got to be one of the best,if not the only recording that you can sing along with and totally enjoy every listening minute. I mean this is it, the begging, the start of the whole revolution of alternative music. The whole album is filled with ups and downs and every feeling you can imagine. The way he acheives this is from his childish acts and the differances in Gano's vioce. I mean it just all fits the way they did it. No matter what feeling or situation they were singing about it was if you were there and could totally relate to all of it. This is a must have album. If you have it, get it out. If you don't have it, get it now. You'll thank me later.
