  1. The Dolls' music... is as gripping as ever. [Jun 2006, p.188]
  2. Yes, Virginia is the album The White Stripes would make if they were getting more passionate and creative with each successive release instead of lamer and more commercial.

    Maybe one of the greatest albums I've ever listened to, absolutely stunning music, Dirty Business may be my favorite song of all time.

    This is like the White Stripes with more piano and a good drummer.
