N IS FOR NEW YORK DOLLS “CAUSE I SEZ SO”
On their second post-reunion album, the Dolls step right back into the glam-punk they invented some 35 years ago. This time, perhaps in an effort to recreate the original magic, they bring back Todd Rundgren, who besides being my all-time favorite artist and producer, sat behind the board on their 1973 self-titled debut.
As always, Rundgren’s production is masterful, and his influence is a little less obvious than usual for one of his productions. While I never mind hearing the hand of Todd on one of his productions, I have heard some people observe that he can be heavy-handed and that is not the case here.
So all in all, this one is worth a spin. Why? ‘Cause I sez so!
