This review is from: in Too Much Too Soon (Audio CD)
After such a stunning debut it was clear that it would be almost impossible to follow and this offering proves the point all too well. That is not to say it is poor, especially if you do not compare the two. As I mentioned when I reviewed the 1st album you still get the impression that it could fall apart at any moment and to me that was the appeal of The New York Dolls - they had done most of it whilst others were still thinking about it. Personal favourite has to be 'Who Are The Mystery Girls'. If you liked the 1st album then the chances are you will also like this. If you're a newcomer then buy the 1st and leave this one until later. Finally saw them (sadly only Johannsen and Sylvain remain intact) live for the 2nd time a couple of years ago, the first time being in the 70's and they still put on an excellent performance. Then as now many could learm much - the New York Dolls are without any doubt the essence of what rock and roll should be!
