  • Summary: 'Virginia' is the second album for the cabaret-punk outfit fronted by Amanda Palmer.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 12 out of 17
  2. Negative: 0 out of 17
  1. The Dolls' music... is as gripping as ever. [Jun 2006, p.188]
  2. While the first album was more adventurous, Virginia‘s newfound focus suits the Dresden Dolls to a tee.
  3. The bastard lovechild of Tori Amos and an Eastern European touring circus. [15 Apr 2006, p.35]
  4. The Dolls tighten their musical corset with beguiling style. [May 2006, p.123]
  5. When [Palmer] misses, she comes off as precious. When she hits, she's as moving as anything in music today. [#13, p.84]
  6. Palmer's style is overwhelming: she sings her poetry with such gusto that it crosses from enthusiastic drama to verbose pantomime.
  7. Sometimes it's hard to take seriously a band that bases its identity on a shtick -- but it doesn't seem like the members of the Dresden Dolls are much interested in being taken seriously.
