5.0 classicamosccc12 | March 25th 12

Not a dull song on the album: unique, the brilliant drumming compliments the aggressive piano perfectly. Amanda writes the best lyrics ever

4.0 excellentJordan | April 24th 11

An unusual, dramatic blend of dark cabaret and punk with lyrics burning with caustic wit.
The Dresden Dolls are one of those bands that hit you on a very emotional level, and serve
as the perfect narrators for bitter break ups.

3.5 greatNick Butler EMERITUS | August 28th 07

Amanda Palmer probaby gave this album the only review it needs when she discussed its genesis on the band's Myspace page. To paraphrase - 'Every song on our last album was 'the song', the song that meant everything to me, but I just don't feel that much about any of our new songs.' That's the difference between the two Dresden Dolls records to date. While it genuinely felt like Palmer had poured her heart and soul into every song there (and she probably had), this album doesn't reach the same heights of volatile emotion. That's not to say it's bad; if anything, it just means the band have grown up. And there are definitely some great songs on here, with "Shores of California", "Sex Changes", "Backstabber", and "Mrs. O" all being good enough to suggest that the Dolls have a prosperous career ahead of them. There are mis-steps - "Sing" is as redundant as the worst power ballads - but given the power of their debut, we should be thankful that the follow-up is as enjoyable as this. It's certainly not the damp squib it could so easily have been.

Awww, I love Mandy Goes To Med School. It's humorous, she's obviously not serious, and it's offensive. Yayy!!
Good review otherwise.

5.0 classicAmarantine | August 23rd 06

This sophomore album by the Dresden Dolls is probably the best album that will come out in 2006. Every single track is beautifuly made, and Amanda's lyrics, keyboarding skills, and vocals shine throughout this entire CD. Brian is one amazing drummer, guitarist, and back up singer. This is a great second album, and I'm already waiting for their third!
