"Few bands with more impressive vintages and prolific back-catalogues have managed to make records as touching, cohesive and deeply seeped in their own character as the debut from The Clientele. This is the perfect dream pop album to make love to!"

"Unlike many other bands, the Clientele don’t seem to care much about the life you and I live, the things you and I see, or the air you and I breathe. Rather, like a classical painter or poet, the band evokes a reality all its own, one which is at once both familiar and strange to the listener. If I’m not making much sense, perhaps an analogy might help. The music of The Violet Hour is “familiar” in that singer Alisdair MacLean sings about things you experience everyday (for example, in “When You and I Were Young” – the way light can make inanimate things seem alive, the way a radiator can make music, etc.), but “strange” because the association of those sensory perceptions with certain feelings and emotions are certain to be novel and foreign at some level. A good artist can make the familiar unfamiliar, make you see and hear things in a new light. Maybe were not many albums in 2003 that were combine images, sounds and deepfelt emotions as well as The Violet Hour. In a way, it seems appropriate that gentle pop giant Donovan once sang about the season of the witch…because today he has worthy descendents in the Clientele and their most bewitching “Violent Hour".
