TOY DOLLS: Ten Years of Toys: CD

Jul 21, 2009

Not a “best of,” per se, so much as re-workings of some of the Dolls’ best songs to celebrate what was their tenth anniversary. The remakes are, for the most part, top-notch, although some are a little slower than the originals. Worth the green if for no other reason than the version of “Harry Cross.” Kinda confused about “I’ve Got Asthma” being included as a bonus track “previously only available on the Japanese CD version.” To the best of my recollection, it was on every version of the original vinyl I ever saw. No matter. It’s on here and it’s good. Now go spend all yer lunch money on it.
