One Day it Will Please Us to Remember Even This is The New York Dolls first studio album in over thirty years and they haven't lost a step.  This incarnation of the Dolls was formed around 2004 when Morrisey (a huge fan of the dolls) reunited the three surviving members (Syl Sylvain, David Johansen, Arthur Kane) for a concert in London.  Shortly after the concert Kane died from leukemia.  Plans for a reunion tour and studio album were shelved until 2006 when Sylvain and Johansen recorded and toured with the new line-up of the Dolls.

The album is one of the best I have ever heard.  David Jo's voice has deepen and sound a bit gravely but he sings with heavy emotion and a lot of enthusiasm.  Syl Sylvain plays rhythm guitar and provides backing vocals on the tracks.  The stand out are Take a Good Look At My Good Looks, Seventeen (dreamy guitar riffs from Bo Diddly) and  Maimed Happiness,   Iggy Pop and Michael Stipe provide backing vocals on a couple of tracks as well.  The new members fit in very well and they do their best to establish themselves instead of trying to imitate those that they have replaced.  I highly recommend this album even if you have never heard of The New York Dolls before.  The warm melodies and heavy lyrics will make you into a fan.
