5.0 out of 5 stars Speechless! 20 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
Gobsmacked is an interesting word and sometimes used in the wrong way. Never for Soho Dolls though, stunning electro pop rock album with live performances that will literally leave you gob smacked! Fun and mad quirky album but it is the live performance that is the real jaw dropper! Maya is one of the most charismatic singers in the industry today! Waiting with baited breath for the second album but if you fancy a touch of similar quirkiness check out the Nicola Roberts album which has input from Maya and has aspects of the Soho Dolls about it.

Maya Von Doll is the greatest frontwoman I've ever seen live. Actually, she's the best frontperson of any gender I've ever seen live. The Sohodolls' Scala gig in London on May 22nd 2009 was magnificent - hands down, the best gig I've ever had the pleasure of attending.
And this, their debut album, forms the backbone of their setlist. "Ribbed Music..." is totally sassy, totally seductive, quite naughty and full of great hooks and riffs and keyboard atmospheres. Maya's singing is delicate, unshowy, posh-London-accented, hugely, hugely likeable. A far cry from the strangulated cat/constipated camel warbles of the far more celebrated and far less talented Duffy, Adele, Amy et al.
On first listen, most of the songs sound simple... simplistic, even. But there is great artistry at work here. The Dolls are superb songwriters and the lyrics are refreshingly unmannered, witty and playful - they blend perfectly with the music.
Stripper is a stonking opener - blending a rabble-rousing chorus with an almost wistful bridge. It's classy and dirty and raucous all at the same time. Lesser bands, lesser artistes would struggle to match Stripper's opening gambit. The astonishing thing about the Dolls is that, on this album, they begin in superlative fashion and maintain that standard throughout every single song. Prince Harry, My Vampire, Right and Right Again, Trash the Rental, I'm Not Cool, Bang Bang Bang, The Rest for the Wicked, Weekender, Pleasures of Soho, No Regrets, 1724.... this is perfect music. As perfect as anything Abba ever managed to come up with. (And I rate Abba highly as musicians and songwriters.)
Live, the Dolls were an incredibly tight unit - their sound is heavier, meatier than on record. Heavier and meatier, in fact, than many metal acts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Electro Rock done perfectly 19 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
the only thing better than this album is the complete track listing live.

There arent many better 2007 album openers than 'Stripper' with the thumping bass and pounding guitar make it a great signature track, then you get the electronic pump of Prince Harry which is a great dancefloor anthem. the album is at its peak when you reach 'the rest for the wicked' which is any electro rock fans wet dream you cant help but be astounded at how this band produced such a great track on a superb album but yet sugababes reside at the top of this antions charts.

there's no justice but there's also no keeping this band down forever
sooner or later the mainstream trash that dominates the airwaves will have to take their foot of the throat of the sohodolls and make way for the greatest thing since the cure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Weak debut from strong singles band 3 Oct 2007
By Lovblad
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Now this was quite a disappointment: after aseries of really great singles, the Soho Dolls have apparently re-recorded them with a new keyboardist: I think she was called Ana Von Doll or whatever and the intro to the excellent single Stripper has been changed to remove her name. Strange. Also the sound does not seem as strong even on the singles. This was a very promising band. I am not saaying this is bad, it still is a good collection of songs but it pales compared to what it should have been.
