5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Violent Femmes, 3 Nov. 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hallowed Ground (Audio CD)
An old friend suggested I listen to this when it first came out. You never forget friends who introduce you to new bands and experiences and all these years later I'm still forever grateful (thanks Rachael W from Gotham, Notts wherever you are now!!).

The opening 'Country Death Song' has an amazing, haunting lyric based on a true story from the ninteenth century. It would have fitted comfortably on Nick Cave's 'Murder Ballads' and the powerful crescendo still hits me now.

The rest of the album interchanges effectively between country/punky/rocky songs (it's very hard to pin down) & some slower numbers but the highlights are the twin classics of the title track and the magnificent 'Never Tell'. This track is a seven minute masterpiece which stands the test of time magnificently and warrants repeated plays.

This has aged well & is highly recommended.
