Amanda Palmer truly makes a statement with her beautifully written melodies concerning her story book past. The first track, "Good Day" can no greater define the way that an album should introduce you to a new sound of musical talent. The song could be considered "pop" if you really pushed the buttons, however the truth stands that the Dresden Dolls are far from entering the mainstream culture. Tracks like "Missed Me" and "672" gave me goosebumps for their intensely-stricken perfection. Amanda's melancholic, cabaret-style vocals are both amazing in her range of harmonies displayed in tracks like "Pefect Fit" and my personal favorite "Bad Habit" (such a cute little song about an infamousely mistaken fetish). I could go down the list and give a detailed explination of the beauty of each and every song, however it would be a waste of time to talk such nonsense and opinionated critiquing. Just know that I ONLY listen to the Dresden Dolls now that I own the album. Best thing I've heard in years. I have the priviledge of seeing them next month in Hollywood, so I'll get to see the gorgeous Amanda up close in storytelling mode. If you enjoy Goth Rock, Rasputina, you'll love this band.
