iTunes Review

You can hear the roots of Buster Poindexter in the breezy, eclectic approach of former New York Dolls singer David Johansen’s third solo album.  With the assistance of guitarist Blondie Chaplin supplying most of the co-writes and the album’s electricity, Johansen spends time dipping into samba (“Marquesa de Sade”) and calypso-reggae (“Rollin’ Job,” “Party Tonight”) while also hustling up the street-wise hard rock that his fans expected. “She Loves Strangers,” “Bohemian Love Pad” and “My Obsession” are jittery, fast-paced, new-wave-influenced hard-rock tunes that sound peculiarly dated with keyboards and guitar tones that could only have come from the late ‘70s and early ‘80s.

Born January 9, 1950, in Staten Island, NY, Johansen joined his first band, the Vagabond Missionaries, in his mid-teens....
