    Without Viglione as a foil, the songs on Palmer's solo debut seem to have lost some delicacy and character. [Fall 2008, p.78]

    It is clearly not for everybody and isn't always easy on the ears, as Amanda doesn't go at all for angelic vocals or even decent vocals.It is clearly not for everybody and isn't always easy on the ears, as Amanda doesn't go at all for angelic vocals or even decent vocals. However, in that she proves that with just the right amount of grit and roughness she can display any emotion she wants, and she does so with incredibly powerful piano solos and sweeping strings.

    This is an incredible album. Amanda Palmer delivers again, and her songs pack as much punch as they do on the Dresden Dolls albums. TheThis is an incredible album. Amanda Palmer delivers again, and her songs pack as much punch as they do on the Dresden Dolls albums. The songwriting is pure genius...you get unexpected, hook laden melodies, crashing piano, subtle emotional ballads and black humor. Lyrically, Palmer presents us with an honesty that is almost heartbreaking and sometimes cruelly sarcastic. All in all, you will not walk away from this album disappointed or unmoved. Full Review »
