Have been waiting about 5 years for J.G. Thirwell's high octane music for VENTURE BROS. to be ripped from the visuals of the show, so this a more than welcomed release. However, I had no idea that the item above was an LP release, as it is indicted in the albums Amazon description as a "Disc." Fortunately, a CD version of the score can be found on [Adult Swim]'s website, under "Music." Or go here - [...] Also, be aware that the CD version features 20 tracks, while the vinyl LP release is limited to only 16 tracks.

Hope this helps!

Don't let the fact that this is a soundtrack from an animated television series fool you, JG Thirlwell has obviously put a great deal of investment in this project. His work with the Kronos Quartet is fantastic and this is an unmistakable outreach from those efforts.

One of the more frustrating component s of writing commercial music is the limitation on length but with the exception of the few tracks under :60, Thirlwell provides well developed themes that have direction and motion. If you're a fan of the Venture Brothers, this album should more than satisfy a long empty hole in your heart and if you've never heard of the series before, you'll simply enjoy the music.

Hopefully, this album is the first of several more to come along with many more wonderful seasons of Venture Brothers fun!

Mr. Thirlwell is a genius of modern music. He combines notes and chords in ways a normal person would never think of, to create a chaotic twist on "spy show" jazz, giving the music that wonderful Venture Brothers feel of madness. The orchestra samples are full of depth and masterfully used.

I have been waiting for something like this since season 1. I always wanted an mp3 of the music that plays on the episode list of the season 1 dvd and finally it's here. The name of the song is Warped Span, and it is song number 18 on this album. Excellent music from an excellent show.

Recently I've been moving from my modern tastes, with includes Melodic Metal & Post Metal, the likes of Dethklok & Altar of Plagues. I've been reestablishing my roots in Classical, more composed music. This album fits a strange, small part of my musical taste buds the likes of which I was formerly unaware. Lands of Goshen this J. G. Thirlwell is fantastic. It moves from yesteryear's twangy western music, to grinding industrial, to carnival music, to classically inspired songs like "Gawker", which, if I may, has to be one of the best composed pieces of music ever written. It's infectious. The whole album.

The vinyl version may be missing four tracks, but if you're into vinyl, this is a must have, regardless of your own taste in music; because, I have to tell you, unless you're into noise metal or Nepalese chant music, there will be at least one track that appeals to you. And if worse comes to worse, & you just must have the remaining four tracks, just buy them as MP3 downloads. It won't be on the record, but a win is a win, you know?

It's a bit overpriced, but to be fair, I think all vinyl is overpriced. They should be cheaper than cds, not more expensive. And Amazon screwed up my order a total of (count 'em) three times. But after the company "made things right" with me, I still feel like this was a good call.

Now, if you've never seen the show The Venture Bros. you'll love this record anyway. If you've never seen the show, I'd kinda like to know how you wound up finding this album to begin with. Of course, you could just be an huge fan of Jim "Foetus" Thirlwell. I'm actually kind of interested in one of his other projects now, Manorexia, but I can't find any Manorexia albums on vinyl.

The long & the short of it. If you thought, even a just little, of buying this album, then just buy it. Buy it in spades.

I love any work by the Great Man. I have liked JG Thirlwell's work in all its various forms since the 80's, which probably dates me. I tend to think being a woman and 36 years old, I am not the standard Venture Brothers fan. I've never seen the breakdown chart though. His music reminds me of my mislead teenage youth. I am glad he keeps making great music and sticks to his creative truths. Like I read an interview in Tape Delay from 1987 that reflects a similar work aesthetic and hasn't really sold out, even though if he did, I am sure it would be to his own bidding, not anyone else's.

Anyway, I collect Foetus, Steroid Maximus, Wiseblood, etc, on LP if I can, I have been lucky to have picked up LPs when they are released since the late 80's. The sound of JG Thirlwell's music on LP is the way nature intended. The Venture Brothers soundtrack is full of tracks in the Manorexia/Steroid Maximus area, not so much Foetus, but I love the use of many genres that the Great Man is famous for. But being a musician with a sound that possesses so many highs and lows, LP captures this remarkably better than CD. If I want it in digital form I can covert it or by a CD from Foetus Org.

Supposedly this show wouldn't even exist without the music of JG Thirlwell. It is what drew me to the show in the first place. I found out about the other music connection, via The Hammer's Mors Syphilitica, a lot later and that also led to a nostalgia of 90's goth music and my old college days making videos and making cable access music shows for the band The New York Room, which is a lot like Mors Syphilitica in many ways, especially the operatic voices. So basically the show is a nice journey into my past, musically.

The design of the record itself is really nice.
