Rolling Stone (4/27/00, p.74) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Captures both the glory and sorrow of glam, the high jinx and wasted youth, with electric photorealism....[It] remains definitive glitter, the perfect eulogy for a short, spangled era..."

Along with the Stooges, the New York Dolls were largely responsible for pioneering the sound and attitude of punk, and this, their self-titled debut, is one of the founding documents of post-'60s rock. Outrageous, shambolic, and bursting with energy, the Dolls borrowed from the amped-up, bluesy swagger of the Rolling Stones, the pop confections of Phil Spector, and the campy theatricality that would flower with the glam movement, yet brought it all together with a visceral impact that recalled the jolt of early rock & roll.
