This album may be a bit over produced, and may not have the stripped down, organic sound of the violent femmes' other releases, but IT IS A FANTASTIC ALBUM. I've been a huge VF fan for over 10 years and this album more than any other finds it's way to my stereo again and again. The variety of mood and style, country, punk, funk, blues, pop, and even new age, make it a refreshing addition to the femmes collection. So what if they're playing electric instruments, so what if the drummer is playing a full kit, it's still one great, interesting song after another. It may not be the first violent femmes album you should buy, but it is, nonetheless, essential.

The Blind Leading the Naked, the third album from the Violent Femmes, has never received the attention and acclaim it deserves. It has its own sound and identity; moving away from the brash, angst-ridden testimonials of the group's early days toward a softer, sometimes mellow sound. Love & Me Make Three, World Without Mercy, Candlelight Song, Two People, and Good Friend are rather somber and sometimes soothing. Of course, Gordon Gano can only be mellow for so long. Old Mother Reagan provides a quick and furious introduction to the album, and this initial energy carries over into the first third of the tracks. No Killing is great, and Faith follows up on the sort of driving religious track introduced on the Hallowed Ground album. Breakin' Hearts has a Buddy Holly feel to it that I really like. Gano turns his frenzied vocals loose on Special and I Held Her in My Arms; these two songs, combined with the unrestrained Heartache and Cold Canyon tracks, help give this album a great balance between the hard-hitting songs you would expect from the Violent Femmes and the unusual softer side that Gano and the guys give birth to here. Accompanied by the unique musical stylings of The Horns of Dilemma and produced by the Talking Heads' very own Jerry Harrison, The Blind Leading the Naked is a great album that introduces us to an entirely new type of sound from this always unpredictable and unorthodox trio of musical entrepreneurs.

This Album is experimental, and ,I don't think that most people will like this album as much as me. The voice and beat is out of place big time, But only if your really want to hear something that sounds like no other kind of music you heard before , I do however recommend buying this album. Most people will cringe listening to this album, even me, But because I favor something different I gave this CD a 3 star rating for being experimental. Although this album is different, I recommend this album for Violent Feminizes fans, as well as people who know and like punk music. In which a lot of people dislike punk bands., But again A lot of people like punk bands, usually the bands who are punk, the singer can't usually sing that good, at least that is what I think. This is a 1980's punk album that came out in (1986). This album's music is similar to rock music but I would not really call this album rock music but, yea punk music in which is another genre of music.

this album has 13 songs and is about 37 minutes long;

Violent Femmes began their career known as the band that is best at mixing folk, rock, and really weird, if not creepy, lyrics. The Blind Leading The Naked, VF's 3rd album, definitely follows in that tradition with songs such as "No Killing" and the ever-famous "Old Mother Reagan". I recommend it to all - to dance to, to listen to, to scare your parents with...

I love this cd... A lot. It's at the low end of the Femmes discography, but it still feels like an endless experiment in diversity. That's pretty impressive, when some of the best music in the past thirty years is some of the Femmes worst.
"No Killing" is a fist pumping, relentless anthem. Playful songs like "Breakin' Hearts" and "I Held Her In My Arms" remind me why the Femmes have had such staying power in the hearts of music lovers throughout the world.
It may not be their best, but this album rocks.

The cassette has a bonus track called World without mercy that will hopefully be added to the CD one day.

this is another classic outing for the femmes,tense ,agitated,pulsing,
moody,with a hint of underlying insanity.
