    Amanda Palmer, one-half of the Boston cabaret-rock duo the Dresden Dolls, claims that WHO KILLED AMANDA PALMER was originally envisioned as a simple set of piano and voice demos, but this lavishly arranged album finds the singer-songwriter moving into uncharted waters. Although her Kurt Weill-gone-goth aesthetic and dramatic vocals remain the same, the full band arrangements sound quite different from the spare piano and drums vibe of the Dresden Dolls. This is no bad thing, as powerhouse tracks like "The Point of It All" are a perfect match to Palmer's melodramatic vocals.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.114) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] dark gem, a high-IQ song cycle that combines guilt, neurotic lust, and low self-esteem into piano-based tunes that come studded with lyrical daggers."
    Alternative Press (p.158) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Across 12 stylistically divergent tracks, the singer-pianist dials things up a few notches with ambitious arrangements....'Another Year' is a personal snapshot of the singer at her most honest."
    Kerrang (Magazine) (p.49) - "[I]ntriguing, which is as you might expect from the mind of one half of cabaret-punk duo The Dresden Dolls."
    URB (Magazine) (p.86) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "PALMER is a wonderful album, one that captures the most well known and beloved side of the titular character with the forgiving, often magical lens of producer Ben Folds."
