EDITORS’ NOTES

Through a nearly two-decade career, Amanda Palmer has always laid herself bare to connect deeply with her fans. For her first solo album in six years, There Will Be No Intermission, the former Dresden Dolls bandleader remembers her own heroes, including author Judy Blume, while mining raw and emotional subject matter. She sketches out the painful experience of a friend going through an abortion across the rippling pianos of "Voicemail for Jill", while she advocates strength in the face of adversity on heart-wrenching battle cry "Bigger on the Inside". Brimming with acerbic wit and theatrical nous, Palmer reminds us why she remains one of the most uncompromising voices in music.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

She saves me!

She wrote me a personalized card a few years ago and I’ve been in a better place in my life. Hearing from her again is amazing and not disappointing. Emotional. Intelligent. Thought provoking. Fun.

It’s just a ride

Emotionally honest and beautiful. The whole album speaks to my heart and soul. It’s like a group therapy session. My heart is on my sleeve and there are tears in my eyes. Thanks Amanda for putting your heart and soul on display. We’re with you. I love you.

Healing the world.

Amanda’s first solo album in 7 years is a masterpiece in healing the collective wounds of western existence. With songs covering subjects like miscarriage, abortion, the heavy death of loved ones, the challenges of growing up and of motherhood...there is something so poignant about her art. It is so necessary. Thank you, Amanda F. Palmer, for this journey in healing yourself and, in the process, helping others heal.
