Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

The New York Dolls created punk rock before there was a term for it. Building on the Rolling Stones' dirty rock & roll, Mick Jagger's androgyny, girl group pop, the Stooges' anarchic noise, and the glam rock of David Bowie and T. Rex, the New York Dolls created a new form of hard rock that presaged both punk rock and heavy metal. Their ... Read more in Amazon's New York Dolls Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome Back 22 Jun 2006
By Me
Format:Audio CD
Not exactly like the original dolls but then I guess there's no point in just creating the past. That aside after a couple of listens we have one strong album.

Standout tracks? Well the first single, "Dance like a Monkey" is great and sounds a bit like the dolls of old, and even better sounds like nothing else out there at the moment. "Fishnets and Cigarettes" has a great swagger. "Maimed Happiness" a strong, slow broody song with a vocal which really sounds like it's 30 years later.

But then it is 30 years later and hopefully the public will embrace the dolls this time around and even more hopefully we get more than two albums out of them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Polished Handle 11 May 2011
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rock and roll was always seen as a young bucks game before a mortgage and noose locked around the neck and platform shoes and hairy chests were swopped for slippers and pipe. The 50-70's discourse; you'll settle down soon.

Thank Lucifer some people rip up the rule book.

The Dolls have the swagger of punk Rolling Stones, more bar chord thrash than blues nit pickings whilst David curls his tongue around the come ons. Tottering on their big stacks, Marlboro perched on the lip an gin bottle on the hip, the Dolls breathed a New York brashness and exuded a strutting rock and roll party. Swallowing bennies, screaming out the angst, the Dolls paraded trash before it became class.

This album balances neatly with the previous releases when they were studiously ignored. Wearing their hearts on their sleeves their cod pieces on full display the Dolls tease those guitar shapes out of lives crawling in the gutter dressed in fishnets, stilletoes and bright red lipstick. The tawdry lives of those who have given the pay check the finger and dreaming of the bigger things of blasting down the highway or at least thumbing a lift.

Fits in with the pre punk blasts of the 70's seguing straight into the 21st century as still relevant to the times and places.

The door to the Glam world has ever faded it just needs a good polish on the knob

5.0 out of 5 stars Dance Like A Monkey 29 July 2007
By Chris C
Format:Audio CD
If you were disappointed that the return of The Stooges didn't pan out to be as great as you could have hoped then feast your ears on the sleazy New York Dolls.

Its hard to imagine a band whose debut album was released in the early 70's, suffered many losses, could return thirty years later rejuvenated and carefree.

One Day It Will Please.. is a straight forward fun rock n roll album, with anthems such as We're All in Love and Fishnets and Cigarettes to catchy numbers like the brilliant Runnin' Around or the appropriately titled Dance Like A Monkey. In fact if this album doesn't make you smile then you need serious counselling.

Look out for guest appearances by Michael Stipe on Dancing On The Lip Of A Volcano and ironically Iggy Pop on Gimme Luv & Turn On The Light.

Its a brilliant record, cheerful, fun and sleazy. Somewhere, you know Johnny Thunders will be smiling.. Buy it now :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars New York Dolls in 2006 Rather Than the Seventies 15 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
Listened to this on the way in to work today: it set me up for the day. Sounds how you would imagine the New York Dolls would sound today rather than how a seventies third album would have sounded: somewhere between Chrysalis era Ramones and Bruce Springsteen (with some vocals by Tom Waits). Full of vibrant energy! Soaring backing vocals! Risque lyrics!

Buy this and then explore the seventies New York Dolls and further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coming of Age 5 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Forgive me Father for I have sinned, I was unkind to David Jo, Syl Sylvain and the new boys in my initial review, but, praise be, for I have seen the light! Anyone who expected this album to be a seamless continuation from the first 2 albums (including myself), was bound to feel let down. When a couple of decades separate your latest work from the previous album, you're bound to find differences. Initially I even took offence at the name, believing two originals plus new boys does not equal NYD. Sami Yaffa with his Hanoi Rocks history is an inspired choice on bass and had the dear departed Johnny Thunders cleaned up and concentrated on the guitar, he wouldn't be a million miles away from Steve Conti.

There are some tracks here that hit you from the off, Dance Like a Monkey really could have been part of the original band's repertoire, Dancing on the lip ... sounds great with Michael Stipe harmonising with David on the chorus. Gotta Get Away From Tommy and Gimme Love ... are fabulous fast paced rushes of rock n roll. Some of the other tracks are growers, a few listens and they have you hooked. The musicianship is excellent and although David Johansen is immediately recognisable, there is a dare I say new found maturity to his voice, 'Look Ma, I'm all growed up!' The humour, swagger and sass you expect from the Dolls are here in spades and the music is great quality rock n roll. So the Dolls have finally come of age, and it aint no bad thing.

(Original Review - 3 Stars)
Let's be real now, to call the band that recorded this album the New York Dolls is pushing it. Had the dear departed Arthur Kane lived long enough to be included I could have accepted the name. What you have here is David Johansen, Syl Sylvain and friends.
