If you are a fan of Amanda Palmer please buy directly from HER her website, or in person at one of her shows.
The record company company is withholding all of the profits if you buy this anywhere other than directly from her.
Please re-post this review any where see any of her products for sale."

Please click "Yes" for "Was this review helpful to you?" at the bottom of the review (you have to log into Amazon to do this)--by voting it the most helpful, it brings that review to the top. Feel free to use the same language to post to other online stores that are not Amanda's.

This is a fantastic album!

As a long time fan of Palmer's work in the inspired 'punk cabaret' duo The Dresden Dolls, I was initially disturbed by her decision to produce a solo album. Any fan of the 'Dolls will agree that their success lies in the raw minimalism of their music - it is that DIY cabaret ethic that makes them both unpredictable and hugely exciting.

'Who Killed Amanda Palmer' (WKAP) is very different - firstly, although it is a solo project, the album features a great many guest musicians and music is of a considerably greater depth and intricacy. Ben Folds' `more is more' approach to production is perfectly matched to Palmer's trademark theatricality; the best example might be the epic, sinister choir on `Have To Drive' or the glacial backing echoes on `Blake Says'.

Palmer's song-writing is on top form and the songs here are extremely varied in style, subject matter and tone. There are moments of high energy, such as `Runs In The Family', `Guitar Hero' and the live favourite `Leeds United' which features a fantastic backing brass section (interestingly credited as "The Born Again Horny Men of Edinburgh".) `Oasis' runs in the same vein as `The Jeep Song' (The Dresden Dolls) but its twee, Americana-influenced sound backs some gorgeously sinister lyrics.

`Ampersand' and `Point Of It All' reveal Palmer's genius for lyricism; a personal favourite is this cutting lyric: "The ghetto boys are catcalling me/ As I pull my keys from my pocket/I wonder if this method of courtship/ Has ever been effective. / Has any girl in history said/ Sure, you seem so nice, let's get it on?

I'd never heard of Amanda Palmer before yesterday, or the Dresden Dolls. Now I have, I'm wondering how I ever lived my life without her.
There are a lot of female singer-songwriters around this year, it seems, mostly taking the same easy-listening folk trail as each other. And that's all fine.

But here is Amanda Palmer, whose music is loud and punky and aggressively sexual. This is not a woman who is waiting around for some beau to sweep her off her feet, rather one who has already finished with him and moved onto several other ones. Her voice is deep and growly and knowing, a wine-addled sixty-a-day roar, her music is replete with pianos, guitars, violins, trumpets, shouty exuberance, and much else besides. And she sounds like she's having just a great whale of a time, and inviting us along for the ride.

There is not a single bad song on this album. Seriously. How rare is that? An album without a single duff track. Even the slow ones, where you're thinking, "Uh-oh, here comes the token ballad". The token ballad is mint. All the token ballads are mint.

And this is all before you reach the track "Oasis". Which is something of a revelation in itself. Listen to the sound of your own jaw hitting the table as you think, "How on earth can she be singing about this? And how can she be making it so much fun?"

No, this is not an album for the Laura Marling/Lisa Hannigan crowd, this is for people who like a bit of good bloody meat on their music. An album for those whom like their women a little bit scary and a little bit out there.

Me, I'm completely in love...
