5.0 out of 5 stars "You can tell by the scars on my arms..." 14 Dec 2004
Format:Audio CD
Where to start...I first heard of The Dresden Dolls when I saw the video for Girl Anachronism. On one of my normal impatient days I probably would have changed the channel a few seconds later, but my attention remained glued to what I saw and heard for the next few minutes. After it finished I headed on to the net and downloaded the song, and ended up listening to it quite a few times in a row, becoming more and more addicted to it. Then, finding further songs generously available for download on their website ([...]) I began to delve further into the wonders of their self-titled album. Being ever so slightly pessimistic, I was extremely surprised to discover that Girl Anachronism was not a one-off. Ok, so there are certainly no songs on the album that are exactly the same as it or that hold the same musical ferocity, but here were songs that were as individually brilliant and special. My views song-by-song are:
1. Good Day - A superbly powerful opener in which singer Amanda Palmer declares "God it's been a lovely day/Everything is going my way". Almost a calm before the storm of...
2. Girl Anachronism - I'm not sure if there is any better way to describe this than the term I have heard a few times in relation to this: Punk Cabaret. This has to be heard to be believed. The drumming, the crashing of the piano and the amazing lyrics that almost trip over each other: all perfection. Amanda really shows off her lyrical talent here with lines that will never leave your mind such as "But I might be catching so don't touch/You'll start believing you're immune to gravity and stuff".
3. Missed Me - Classic playful piano playing with loud bursts of drumming.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is my moral duty to write this review!!! 13 May 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I hope you have read the many fantastic reviews about this album, because they are all true; the original album is a true masterpiece, a wonderfully imaginative explosion of wild music, but...

I know this is not what you want to read, but honesty is the best policy; The Dresden Dolls released their debut album last year - and it was brilliant. I reviewed it and gave it 5 stars, because it was, in so many ways, unique. But this... this offence to the freethinking music listener should be banned, along with music censorship generally. All expletives and intensifiers have been removed and replaced either by gaps, overdubbed "sounds" or what sounds like Amanda Palmer suffering a sudden attack of bronchitis. THIS IS A WARNING: This, the "CLEAN" album, is not an album worth listening to and, to add insult to irony, it has been produced by a self publicising and so-called democratic society that condones the IRA, fosters white supremacist organisations, religious fanaticism, promotes the right to bear arms (even when the same arms are used by children to kill their classroom peers), intimidates the Middle East, bullies smaller countries into submission or financial ruin, yet finds it wholly unacceptable to include the word F*CK in a song.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dresden Dolls 25 Jan 2006
By RachelWalker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I read a quote somewhere that claimed writing about music was akin to dancing about architecture. True. To do it welland effectively is a huge talent few have, and I'm certainly not one of them, so I'm not really going to try. All I'm here to say is that this album - indeed, this band - is fantastic, absolutely fantastic, so do yourself a favour and get it.
Styling themselves as "Brechtian-punk-cabaret", they've hit the nail on the head if ever it was done. It's not like music I've ever heard before. It's practically incomparable. Amanda Palmer's lyrics are spectacular, piercing, occasionally witty, awkwardly honest, probing. Good Day, the bitterweet opener, kicks things off perfectly: "So you don't want to hear about my good day/you have better things to do than hear me say/God it's been a lovely day/everything is going my way/i took out the trash today and I'M ON FIRE...so go ahead and talk about your bad day/i want all the details of the pain and misery".
There isn't a bad song here. The album may take a listen or two for you to absolutely fall in love with it (it did me - but when it happened I feel hard), but if your tastes sometimes run the slightly different, this is for you. It's pained, it's heartfelt, its completely original. The vocals are remarkable: Palmer can move in a second from practiclaly screaming to the delicately whispering, and the effect is stunning. The piano playing is excellent too, shifing from tuneful melodies to ordered thrashing and back again.
I love this album. It's amazing. Trust me. And the others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year 5 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
Surely evertything you could want from a band on one album. Lyrically and sonically stunning from the opening bitterness of 'Good Day' that recalls the spite of Alanis Morrisettte's 'You Oughta Know' to the twisted neurosis that threads its way through the wonderfully chaotic 'Girl Anachronism'. The band are completely original and yet the songs are so strong that they sound familiar from the second playing. Buy this album now and feel the hairs on the back of your neck stand up at right angles. Exceptional.

Led here after seeing the Amanda Palmer videos on YouTube. This is equally dramatic, quirky, unique, over the top, unmissable. Buy it also.
