|Ranking Songs: Hotel Last Resort by Violent Femmes|
They released a new album that I enjoyed it. Here are the songs ranked.
I Get What I Want
A classically great Violent Femmes song that could have possible fit in their first couple of albums as it mixes twisted lyrics with an amazingly catchy chorus.
|2||Paris to Sleep|
Just simply an overall amazing slow banger with great instrumentation and lyrics with ambiguous meaning. I love relaxing with this song.
A really great, topical, and upbeat reimagination of the song of the same name in their album “New Times” where in that album it felt like it was missing more “noise”.
|4||Adam Was a Man|
I don’t really care for the religious aspect of the song I just really get down with the guitar-horn mix in it.
|5||I’m Not Gonna Cry|
A cool/weird-in-a-good-way highlight off the album which is probably the result of it being a translation of a foreign song.
I’ve heard some pretty mixed opinions on this song, but I hear it as a great opener even if the lyrics and vocals are pretty simple.
|7||It’s All or Nothing|
Like “Not Ok” it is just another enjoyable Violent Femmes song.
Just a normal good Violent Femmes song.
|9||Hotel Last Resort|
I really like the instrumentation but the lyrics get really off putting towards the end of the song.
|10||God Bless America|
I like the dark edge put in the instrumental to contrast with the original song.
It is a nice upbeat and happy song, but it feels a little repetitive.
|12||This Free Ride|
The song feels unfinished. Vocals are nice though.
|13||Sleeping’ At the Meetin’|
This song feels more like a bonus track than one for the first release of the album.
