MP3 Reticent Virgo - The End of This
This album reels in a warm and crunchy, Washington DC alterna-rock sound, that fluctuates in its own dynamic with a certain tenacity, that would make even Dave Grollof Foo Fighters famequite proud.

The provocative yet desperate lyrics feel almost tethered to the glory of The Catherine Wheel''s Happy Days release, while the seesawing rhythms flavor the air like the buttery crust of a Sex Pistols souffle, baked by the callous hands of Gregg Dulli and the Afghan Whigs, then garnished with tiny plastic Everclear figurines, made in Taiwan by an 8-year-old shoeless factory worker, earning 12 cents a day so some fat cat record exec could save a little cash and overcharge the consumer for cds in order to promote another goddamned boy-band. Weren''t we all tortured enough by NKOTB? The album was recorded (20-bit digital) mixed by Jack Danger and mastered (ProTools) by Auria.
"Reticent Virgo has a release entitled, The End Of This. This three-piece outfit has some heart and power that they clearly demonstrate on this rather punkish release. They rock, plain and simple. Go get some!" - Music Monthly, April 2001
"Great band to see live. The music rocks, and these guys have a lot of heart - which is something that seems to be missing from a lot of local bands these days."- Posted on https://www.tradebit.com: 03-JAN-01 by Mandingo.
"I think his (Jim) lyrics are brilliant. Dark, but brilliant. A lot of angst therein, but written poetically, and with guts." - Posted on https://www.tradebit.com: 1-AUG-01 by Pops Walker, Recording Artist.
"Great demo! "Busy" is really catchy and has great harmonics in the guitar line. That''s the song you need on the radio. Keep up the good work. Every one needs to check them out LIVE. They put on a great show, I''ve seen these guys a few times and they rip." - Posted on https://www.tradebit.com: 28-NOV-00 by Dave Lewin, Recording Artist.
