The Dresden Dolls could never be accused of being shy and retiring, but on their second full-length, Yes, Virginia. they sound more confident than ever, igniting their cabaret-rock with more crazed inventiveness and you-are-there immediacy. Sean Slade and Paul Kolderie's production adds to the bigger, more rock-inspired sound of the album, which invigorates Amanda Palmer's character sketches. While the highly theatrical, stylized sound of the Dresden Dolls might seem to be the substance of their music - and, admittedly, it does draw the listener in right away - it's the strong songwriting that makes the band truly impressive. Palmer's lyrics have a mix of sympathy and disdain for the people and subjects in her songs that makes them seem very honest in spite, or perhaps because of, their theatricality.

The Dresden Dolls sophomore release Yes, Virginia is more or less an album based around the latter emotion. The Dresden Dolls are a two piece band from Boston, MA. Arguably the best piano-based band in the land (sorry Keane), The Dolls’ debut was a masterpiece; it was epic, emotional, dark and beautiful. It was this album that brought The Dresden Dolls one of the largest cult fan bases on the east coast. My biggest problem with Yes, Virginia is the lack of the previously mentioned emotions. On Yes, Virginia Amanda Palmer just doesn’t seem as f u cked up, as scary or as sad. The songs (most of them) are less epic and less dramatic. These are all the qualities that made Dresden Dolls such a great record. It’s dramatic and emotional and just plain cool.
