Most of you will be looking at this album because you've got hold of the incomparable Gypsy Punks - Underdog World Strike and thought "I NEEEED more of this band NOW!". Voi-La Intruder dates from 2002, and is a bit like going back in time, not least because that's exactly what you're doing.

It's more folky, more mainstream, more quiet, and a bit more of a "concept album in two movements" than Gypsy Punks - but only in the context of that album being the wildest maelstrom of heavenly mash ever to emerge from the Ukrainian diaspora - or indeed anywhere in the world - in the last 15 years.

There's some stunning individual tracks - "Greencard Husband" and the closing 7 minutes plus of "Against the Nature" amongst them. But my favourite is a duet with Sally Norvell entitled "God-like" which moves effortlessly from its hymnish opening verse into a self-flagellating abusefest that puts the exchange of Kirsty & Shane in their classic Fairytale into the shade. Combine that with the original recording of "Start Wearing Purple" (reminiscent of hearing London Calling on the Vanilla Tapes) and you have an album that won't disappoint.

Not sure what to say, just if you ever feel down then these guys'll put a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

They are permanently stored on my phone, so if ever I'm out and feeling like I need a lift I can just stick this album or any of Gogol Bordello's albums on and within a song or two I'll be feeling a whole lot better.

Those crazy Ukranians have done it again. Not quite sure where this falls in the Gogol timeline but it's not as manic as there other stuff but just as good in a 'subtle' way. When I say subtle it's subtle like a kick in the goolies, whereas the other albums are a pick axe in the face 'subtle' I loved it.

Psst. Kid, want a piece of candy? 5 Mar. 2002
By Anna J. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Best kick I've gotten from an new album in ages. A sort of sly, accordian-soaked, over-the-top gypsy celebration with tons of energy and drama. Listening to it reminds me of a cross between Mr. Bungle, Uzme Doma and 3Mustapha3. (Oh wait...those might not be helpful comparisons.) Eugene Hutz sings/wails and otherwise belts his way through each of these tunes like a harsher, wilder Tom Waits. This is a great CD.

Voi-la! 8 July 2006
By EA Solinas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Gogol Bordello is hot right now, with their raucous, wild gypsy punk music and rousing concerts. But they started off a bit more low-key with their debut, "Voi-La Intruder," which relies more heavily on the gypsy part of their music than the punk-rocker aspect. Still, it's a dancey, wild album with their current persona creeping up under the table...

It kicks off with a traditional-sounding klezmer tune that slowly turns into a dancier klezmer tune, with frontman Eugene Hutz sounding as dignified as he can. At the start, that is. When he starts with the chorus ("My DARLIN'/DARLIN'/my sacred darlin'!"), he starts soundng like his usual wild self.

The traditional East-Euro-folk sound continues throughout the album, with the frenetic patchwork "Voi-La Intruder," the urgent tight-paced "Greencard Husband," and their biggest hit to date: "Start Wearing Purple," a schizophrenic little delight. It sounds a bit different from the version on their most recent album "Gypsy Punks: Underdog World Strike."

They even dabble in acoustic balladry, with the plaintive "Mussolini Vs. Stalin," which ends with a mournful chorus of voices that all sound like Hutz. But as folky as this is, we start to see the punk elements that make up half their music right now -- there are hints of it in the snarly lyrics about women impregnated by "Unvisible Zedd," and the wild electric guitar of "Letter to Castro."

Basically this album -- which reportedly had a different lineup -- relies heavily on Eastern European folk and pop, rather than the wild punk sound they have now. More gypsy than punk, more folk than rock -- and surprisingly it isn't any less appealing from a musical standpoint.

Call it klezmer with a twist. Gogol Bordello packs it up with thuddy percussion, accordions, and some very restrained electric guitar. In songs like "Letter to Mother," it sounds like it's aching to explode into a rock song, but instead it sticks to being spirited traditional music. You can see how gypsy punk grew out of this sound.

Eugene Hutz does both vocal styles here. He does the raucous punk howls about half the time, as he wails bizarre lyrics like "Start wearin' purple/wearin purple... all your sanity and wits/they will all vanish/I promise/it's just a matter of time." But he has a very pleasant singing voice as well, as shown in the grand finale, the folky "Against the Nature."

Gogol Bordello sounded quite different when they debuted with "Voi-La Intruder," but there are hints of what they would become. An interesting and pleasant album.

Gypsy Punk Underground Stylee 5 May 2007
By Old School Fool - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The Movie "Everything is Illuminated" is a good-one... they were on the soundtrack.
If you like old school punk, you should find this fun... altho it can get old after awhile (there is not a lot of variety in how the singer intonates, or the overall sound of the music)... I almost wish they had cut this album down to the five best tracks and just left it...the classics on it are amazing... but there is fluff, too, which detracts from the better stuff...
The vocals are snotty and true... the lyrics interesting (sometimes cliche)... the emotion genuine...
and it *doesn't* sound like anything else on the radioPunk Cookery, The Punk Rocker's Cafe Cookbook, Vegetarian Specialties

Early Gogol 11 May 2009
By tatarca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Great early stuff, more gypsy than current albums. I personally love both sounds and u can hear the workings of what will become the Gogol Bordello of today. Some very nice harmonies. Also includes some slower more 'tame' tunes that might surprise you. Love it!
Excellent Album 5 Feb. 2010
By T. MCDONALD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I first heard of Gogol Bordello from the movie "Wristcutters- A Love Story". They are a fantastic blend of Folk music, polka, Gypsy, and Punk. I know that sounds dull and boring, but it is not. Their music is very loud and fun and catchy, but most of all it is really, really good.
