New York Dolls- one Day It Will Please Us to Remember Even This: Review

Monday, August 28, 2006

Finally I'm back online. I have just moved flats, so I've been without internet for a week or so. There will be a few reviews published in the next few days.

New York Dolls- One Day It Will Please Us to Remember Even This

Thirty-two years ago the New York Dolls released Too Much Too Soon; the album instantly became a cult classic. The next year they disbanded, never to record again. Until now! Yes the dolls are back, lipstick and all, with a brand new line-up and a complete album of original studio recordings.
Unfortunately like most ageing rockers, this album has limited appeal. Middle aged, cigarette smoking Rolling Stones fans will love it, but despite guitarist Sylvain Sylvain’s claim "The kids wanted this", they will not. If the title One Day It Will Please Us to Remember Even This is a declaration, maybe the band don’t love the album that much either. It seems this album was more about having fun than trying to create a classic, and that’s fine. If they can still enjoy playing after all these years, good on them. After all this is only the bands third studio album.
