Punk Cabaret Really Is Freedom

This band is just incredible. Amanda Palmer's lyrics are raw and soul-wrenching, her masculine and strong voice manuevering the words to perfection. Brian Viglione's drumming is solid and deep, and he's almost better than Spencer Smith. Together, they managed to create a hit album, "Girl Anachronism", "Coin-Operated Boy," "Gravity", "Bad Habit", "The Jeep Song", and "Truce", are particularly great. This band is unlike anything you've ever heard. I suggest you purchase it.

Bipolar Fun

If you're leery of the unconventional, possess no sense of humor and no appreciation for the bizarre, or like your boys to sound like girls but never the other way around, don't buy this album. If you're looking for something new and compelling, and have no qualms with any of the above: GO FOR IT. The quality of the sound itself is a little rough, "as though they recorded it in their living room," as someone I know has said, but with the engery and enthusiasm Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione put into it, it evens out. They go from manic highs--"Girl Anachronism," most notably--to surprisingly low lows--"Missed Me," to an extent, or "The Jeep Song," and, of course, Amanda's voice in general--and it's one heck of a ride. Every song is worth listening to at least once, and while they can be hard to decipher, every lyric is worth reading. They're a little addictive, and a little habit-forming, and it's very easy to suddenly find yourself a fan after years of only vaguely knowing about oh yeah, those Doll people. Give them a shot; you may end up being glad for it. (However, you should most definitely not listen to the Dresden Dolls when: looking for something mellow and soothing, you have a headache or are tired or mentally distressed, or if you have trouble discerning humor and/or are prone to taking things literally. There's an edge of dark humor in the lot of the songs, or so I've interpreted them--especially "Bad Habit," which is arguably the most controversial song on this album, but one of my favorites nonetheless. There is an element of shock value present--don't be scared off by it.)

Anything but Ordinary

If you are looking for something completely original, no pop, no screaming emo boys, and definitly nothing you've heard on the radio then definitly check out the dresden dolls. This cd is so inspirational and Amanda Palmer's lyrics and mad piano skills will hypnotize you. If you can as well check out their music videos for "girl anachronism" and "coin operated boy". I've been a fan since early 2004 and still never get tired of them.


Formed: 2001 in Boston, MA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A variety of noteworthy groups were active on the Boston music scene in the late '90s and early 2000s -- groups ranging from retro-soul/funk band Superhoney to the quirky, '80s-minded synth pop/new wave trio Freezepop to the hard-to-categorize Moonraker (who have since moved to New York City). But the most unique and intriguing group to come out of Boston during that period may very well have been the Dresden Dolls, a highly unorthodox duo consisting of lead singer/pianist Amanda Palmer (who handles...
