Format: Audio CD
Though not as consistently brilliant as their debut album, VF's Hallowed Ground nevertheless contains their 3 best songs. A few groups have tried to marry the desperation of Appalachian murder ballads and the fury of punk but there has never, in my opinion, been more successful attempts before or since Gordon Gano's Country Death Song and I Hear The Rain. Both musically and lyrically, the songs capture the essence of old-time mountain music and punk rock, creating a hybrid that left me stunned to the core the first time I heard them. Almost 20 years later, these songs have lost none of their power on me.
The 3rd masterpiece on this album is Never Tell, a song about unspecific childhood bullying and/or blackmail sung, written and performed in a manner so extreme as to raise the storyline to the level of myth. I don't think Gano wrote this song so much as the song spewed out of him whole.
I think it is a shame that most VF fans whose lives were changed by that groundbreaking first album have not listened to other musical genres to fully appreciate Hallowed Ground, with its mix of old-time, gospel, jazz and funk. I have friends who still don't believe me when I say that Jesus Walking On The Water is not a parody. I think all you punk rock fans ought to check out some Roscoe Holcomb albums before you listen to this one.

Finally after being out of print for years, this album is available again. I actually ran across this by accident. How fortunate. I'm definitely ordering the CD (used to have it on cassette). This album is phenomenol. At the time (1983), there was nothing else out like it. It seemed so strange in comparison to other popular bands at the time, ie. Hall and Oates. Very advanced harmonically and lyrically. Great, unforgettable songs - Country Death Song, I Hear the Rain, etc. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Luckily, after being out of print for several years, tbis,the best of all violent femmes albums , is back. Easily the most gruesome and hysterical lyrics ever written by any band in the 80's. Best tracks include Country Death Song, Jesus Walking on the Water, Black Girls, Never Tell (my favorite)...and in the song Sweet Misery Blues, the singer is obviously real hot for whoever he's talking about and it's definitely one of sexiest songs I've ever heard. Overall, probably one of my 10 most favorite albums ever.
