Atomic Violet - Rock Widow Review
by Kevin Wierzbicki

At first listen, Atomic Violet seems to have something going in the unique vocal styling of Joe Sasarak. But the somewhat quirky, nasally intonations quickly (the third song or so) start to wear on the listener. The front man for the Jersey City four-piece grungers would probably sound a lot more interesting if the band had of used a producer for Rock Widow that pushed them a little or at least contributed some guidance. As it is, it sounds like he basically just ran the board and let the band go through the motions. The album is also sequenced poorly---two of the best songs, the slow and emotional "God" and the cacophonic "Clockwatcher"---are nestled in at albums close, a place that most listeners won't get to thanks to the lesser songs that precede them. I would put Atomic Violet, or at least Sasarak, on the watch list as it is obvious that there is something there trying to come out. But for now, leave this one alone.
