Awesome album that was ahead of its time. Favorite songs: Kiss Off, Add It Up.

As everyone else has said, incredibly ahead of its time. Super reminiscent of Pixies' Doolittle with a bit more teen angst. A quick, enjoyable listen. Doesn't feel tedious or like there are any filler tracks. Refreshingly unapologetic.

From Brad1770
As far as debut albums go this is one of the very best

Now 35 years old as I write this in 2018 'Violent Femmes' is more like a best of compilation than actual album . Hows this for a roll call of smashing tracks:
- "Blister in the Sun"
- "Kiss Off"
- "Add It Up"
- "Prove My Love"
- "Gone Daddy Gone"

Ridiculous for a band in their early 20's with many of the tracks written whilst Gano was in High School

Oh and go to Youtube and look up 'Violent Femmes On Sabrina The Teenage Witch ' , basically a spell is put on Gordon Gano to fall in love with Sabrina's friend , its 100% hilarious

I can describe this album in one word: ICONIC

While most acts were making hair rock, post-punk and new wave music in 1983, these guys were already in the nineties.

Violet Femmes is an album before its time and one of the most unique of the 80's.

Classico esordio in cui, avendo molte idee in testa ed avendo anche ben chiara la maniera di esporle, spari subito tutte le cartucce, fai il botto ( un po' meno il bottino ) e poi vivi ( artisticamente ) di rendita.

I have screamed in horrid pain the words to "Promise" as I drove crying, and broken hearted. I have gently sung "Good Feeling" while rocking to sleep all 4 of my biological kids and 4 foster kids, most of nieces and nephews. Is there another album capable of that range of emotion?
