Album Review

This volume of the 20th Century Masters series attempts to be a good, low-priced introduction to the New York Dolls. The collection culls five songs from each of the Dolls' two studio albums and adds the non-LP track "Lone Star Queen." The selections are solid: From the first album, "Personality Crisis," "Looking for a Kiss," "Trash," "Pills," and "Jet Boy" were chosen. One could argue that it would have been nice to include "Lonely Planet Boy," one of the great punk ballads, to show off the bruised romantic heart of the band, but it isn't a criminal omission. The picks from Too Much Too Soon are "Babylon," "Stranded in the Jungle," "Puss 'N' Boots," "Don't Start Me Talkin'," and "(There's Gonna Be A) Showdown" — great songs, one and all. The inclusion of "Lone Star Queen" is questionable; it isn't a very good song and the compilers were probably throwing in a "rarity" just for rarity's sake. It would have been better to include another song from the albums. Heck, you should probably just spend the money and buy the two albums instead of this sampler. Once you hear the New York Dolls' raucous brand of rock, you'll want all you can get.

Customer Reviews

a major turn around

If you like the New York Dolls you have to see "New York Doll". It's the story of Aurthur killer Kane (bass) after the breakup of the band, he got into drugs and hit rock bottom while David Johansen (lead vocals) was making money as buster poindexter. Then Aurthur joined the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and worked in the california temple. at the end the band played in Morresiey' s meltdown 2004 Aurthur and David became friends again then Aurthur unfourtantly died. So buy the music to pay tribute to one of the greatest bands and bassists ever.

New York Dolls

While this is a pretty decent collection of their hits, where is their amazing debut album "New York Dolls"? If you need any introduction to this band their debut is the way to go. Itunes may not have it but it is available on CD nowadays.

New York Dolls

Certianly different. 1% Sex Pistols, 1% The Clash, 1% Speaking, and 97% Weird. The lyrics are strange, but you should just ignore that and listen to the music. I say go for it.

The New York Dolls created punk rock before there was a term for it. Building on the Rolling Stones' dirty rock & roll, Mick Jagger's androgyny, girl group pop, the Stooges' anarchic noise, and the glam rock of David Bowie and T. Rex, the New York Dolls created a new form of hard rock that presaged both punk rock and heavy metal. Their drug-fueled, shambolic performances influenced a generation of musicians in New York and London, who all went on to form...
