From: Aero Force Mike Date: January 10, 2005 at 12:08
Brilliant album, the band that practically single-handedly created the entire 80s sleaze scene as well as providing the template for essentially all of Hanoi Rocks' career (not that that's a bad thing at all!). Fusing a Rolling Stones/debut-Aerosmith style guitar tone and riffing with a loose snotty punky-attitude and a whole lotta rock 'n' roll, the NY Dolls were just pure sleaze. Without em, there'd be no Hanoi, Jetboy, GnR, Shotgun Messiah, Motley Crue, Faster Pussycat, Easy Action etc. 9/10

I strongly second everything Aero Force Mike just said. These guys were the originals. I'm kinda suprised this got on the site since it might be just a little bit too punkish for most. They were the main inspiration for Johnny Rotten and the Sex Pistols also. The coolest tune on here was "Subway Train" which if you like Hanoi you'll love this song. Johnny Thunders' guitar playing on here was pretty cool too.

From: Aero Force Mike Date: January 10, 2005 at 16:22
Well to me they're no more punk than Hanoi Rocks or Demolition 23 are - they helped forge the sloppy punk ATTITUDE before there ever was punk, but David's vocals are basically a mix of Michael Monroe and Mick Jagger, the riff work is raunchy rock 'n' roll, the clothing was total glam (Nikki Sixx owes royalties to Johnny Thunders) and their influence to punk was far beyond any punk sound in their own music. It's just rock and due to their significance, they were well overdue here!

'bad girl", for this song alone i'm a fan of theze godfathers of sleaze...

Would this site even exist without these guys? STILL look and sound dangerous even in 2005. Just awesome sloppy, barely in tune, garage punk rock played with the feriocity of a band that knows it might be the last song they ever play. Makes every band that claims they're "bad boys" or "dangerous" look and sound like church choir boys. This stuff was way too dangerous and awesome to ever be popular. An essential if you want to see the original big bang of sleaze!!

From: Richierocker Date: January 23, 2005 at 11:38
JetBoy and Subway Train are my favorites on this album. You can tell They influenced Nikki Sixx and taime Downe big time. This album has sleaze, punk , glam and attitude written all over it.

From: Steve McDonald Date: April 8, 2005 at 18:49
Oh yeah! i totally agree with everyone above. if it wasn't for these guys there would be no twisted sister, poison or guns n'roses. come to think about the fact that there would'nt be no sex pistols either. LONG LIVE THE DOLLS!

From: aMetalhead1966 Date: January 5, 2006 at 14:33
These guys started it all with the sleaze/glam sound...sorry Bowie. It's not really heavy by todays standards but without em'...well many a band wouldn't be or at least sound the same....
