Muze PNote The Violent Femmes' sixth album, 1994's NEW TIMES, features the addition of a new drummer and is a solid addition to the band's canon. Opening with the straightforward--for the Femmes, anyway--"Don't Start Me on the Liquor," another Gordon Gano tale of decaying humans set to a jaunty beat, and a title track vaguely reminiscent of "The Monster Mash," the album settles down.
Muze PNote The sinister acoustic guitar base of "Breaking Up" gives way to a weird, haunted-house organ mid-section. "4 Seasons" offers a nod to the band's propulsive, jangling past, complete with Gano's particularly strange vocal inflections. "Machine" features a theremin in a one-joke song about taking over the world. Fortunately, it is a good joke. "Agamemnon" recalls some of the more out-there moments of the They Might Be Giants catalogue, and "I Saw You in the Crowd" employs a Beatles-esque riff before accelerating into a scale-climbing middle section. The album ends on the more bleakly toned "Jesus of Rio," an odd combination of Gano's personal failures, religious sentiments, and political statements.

Producer: Gordon Gano; Warren Bruleigh; Brian Ritchie

Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly (5/20/94, p.62)
- "...No longer the poet laureate of puberty, the top [Gordon Gano] ushers his Milwaukee trio into maturity with a new drummer and a new label...the Femmes cook up some real steam, something they haven't done since 1984's rowdy HALLOWED GROUND...." - Rating: A-
