5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best bands you never heard of, August 19, 2003
Why doesn't anybody ever talk about this band? They should, because it was one of the most eclectic sounding, cryptic, and interesting bands of the late 90s. Jennifer Olay's beautiful but atypically textured voice, like a hard echo in a stone wishing well, is well worth a listen. And the songs are like frayed tapestries, mechanical, distorted, impressionistic, resonant, and quite emotional. Sometimes listening to Violent Green is like taking a long, lonely walk in the dark. All three albums are wonderful aural gifts that crawl inside your head and make you feel like you're dreaming this music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and funky space age quickies that will zap your brain., March 19, 2002
This review is from: Plays Lost TV Themes (Audio CD)
I picked up a used copy of this album recently and have been playing it to death ever since. I was intrigued first by the cover, which is a (slightly) reworked version of an old Disneyland poster for the long-gone Flying Saucer ride. Not knowing anything about the group (except that their albums were filed under "Lounge Music"), I figured anyone who likes old Disneyland rides can't be too bad, and I caught on pretty quick to their joke of themes for non-existing TV shows (remember "Bossa Nova Squad"?), similar in concept to an album by Arling & Cameron (another intriguing group, with moments of lounge). Basically, these are quick and fun surf guitar and electro-organ riffs that would fit perfectly into an episode of Johnny Quest or some long forgotten 50s crime show. My favorite "theme" is definitely "Korla Rides Again," and for those of you in the know that should give a pretty good idea of the sense of fun the group employs. Only drawback: the whole CD is only about 33 minutes, so it goes by a might bit quick. This would be great background music for a retro-cocktail party or for just cruising around town on your Vespa.
