#211: New York Dolls by New York Dolls

6.22.2012

New York Dolls by New York Dolls (1973)

Favorite Tracks: "Lonely Planet Boy" and "Trash" and "Jet Boy"

Thoughts: It has been a shitastic day so far, so I was very welcoming to some proto-punk.  It's pouring rain outside in the middle of June and I LOVE it.

Still, while I was in the mood for this kind of music, I was still left pretty cold by the New York Dolls.  It was good.  But I think I am much more impressed by Roxy Music, MC5, Big Star and The Velvet Underground. 

I mean, if you can't tell, I'm getting a bit burnt out on this list.  We are in the low 200s.  I'm expecting my life to be changed by this music.  I'm expecting to want to add every album from here on out to my personal library to cherish and re-visit for the rest of my life.  And it's just not happening right now. 

Is This Better Than The River?:
