This is the first album by the reunited New York Dolls to not sound anything like the original group. Instead, they head towards the original band’s roots and come up with sassy R&B numbers and girl- group emulations that rely less on the pummeling thunder of electric guitar and more on gritty sax and flashy keyboards. With just singer David Johansen and guitarist Syl Sylvain remaining and ex-Blondie Frank Infante taking over for guitarist Steve Conte, the Dolls are smart to chase this sound. Johansen is never at a loss for words. “I’m So Fabulous” and its accompanying rant shows Johansen doesn’t think much of modern NYC transplants, while the re-animated “Funky But Chic,” from Johansen’s first solo album, is down and dirty. The Caribbean breezes of “You Don’t Have to Cry” lets Johansen put on his tourism chief cap. “Talk to Me Baby” kicks it with handclaps and a soul band arrangement. The cover of “I Sold My Heart to the Junkman,” a 1962 hit for Patti LaBelle & The Blue Belles, fits the album’s concept perfectly.
