Review this album
Nov 1, 2010This is an incredible album. Amanda Palmer delivers again, and her songs pack as much punch as they do on the Dresden Dolls albums.

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.… Expand
Jan 24, 2013It 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.
