AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Velvet Jones' debut album Colin is a stylish fusion of '60s chamber-pop and post-punk, filled with dark textures and exuberant pop melodies. Considering the group's ambitions, it shouldn't come as a surprise that their reach often exceeds their grasp, but the best moments -- the eerie "Window," the mean-spirited "Exclusive" and the bratty "80 Foot Ego" -- illustrate that Velvet Jones is a band with enormous potential.
