Guide Review - The Violet Burning - 'Drop Dead'
This is a pretty good album overall that shows a lot of diversity. Some of my personal favorites are, "All I Want," "Already Gone," & "Rewind." All of the music fits together nicely on these songs, which includes nice synthesizers and vocal effects. The last song on the album, "One Thousand Years," has the the most straight up message of all the songs. It talks about running back to God after all the hardships and sin that abound in life.
There are a few songs that, for me, kind of drag along throughout the album. Then again, I've never really listened to The Violet Burning before, so maybe it's just me. Overall, I think Drop Dead is a solid album. It's definitely worth checking out for people that like new wave music!
