    The group have been around for well over a year without arousing much of a stir, and the monumentally tedious poesie-rock of Violet Cries offers few hints that this should change.

    If Esben and the Witch don't quell their sonic histrionics, they may not get a second curtain call.

    "Violent Cries" just may be the music for an exclusive club of miseries immersed in a belief that Esben & The Witch gravitate beyond the normal artistic boundaries. For everyone else it's just three tiresome musicians desperately trying to be taken seriously by presenting an impenetrably dull, brooding and lifeless experience. Full Review »
