On their sophomore album, Blonde Redhead streamline the beautiful ballast of their debut into a feral flow as focused as it is furious. An upgrade in production values this time around doesn't stifle the energy, and greatly enhances the increasingly sophisticated interplay between intstruments and voices. If the debut announced their arrival, La Mia Vita Violenta cemented their (rightful) place at the table.
Blonde Redhead aren't blonde at all

"I don't remember why I got this album. Like most great finds I think I heard a track on the college radio and went to purchase it immediately. They have been known to rock on this one like Dirty-era Sonic Youth. "I Still Get My Rocks Off" and "I am There While You Choke On Me" absolutely kick. The quieter stuff is hypnotic. I added "Young Neil" for a friend's compilation tape just for one amazing chord change deep into the song. If you're reading this you're most likely a fan of experimental guitar rock. This album does not disappoint! PS- The songs sound even better live."

"This album is brilliant. If you enjoyed Loveless from My Bloody Valentine or Goo or Dirty from Sonic youth, you'll probably like La Mia Vita Violenta. It has a great balance of slow dreamy numbers and ear drum popping rockers. I saw Blonde Redhead a couple of weeks ago in San Francisco and they blew me away. The songs that they performed form this album were particularly good. For three skinny little people, they sure know how to make a lot of noise."
Another great album from Blonde Redhead

"I got their self-titled debut a little while ago, and it completely blew me away--it had power, beauty, screaming, great male and female vocals and unconventionally played guitars. I just had to get some of their other albums. This album, their second, continues the winning streak (and so does their third album, "Fake Can Be Just As Good."). This one is different because there's a lot more beauty to it, mixed in with the chaos and power. Just wish they would put on a concert in my area."
