The Dresden Dolls Should Have NO Connection to Shitty Electro.
I don't know how I feel about this.
As someone who grew to love Amanda Palmer's work as one half (the best half) or the Dresden Dolls I feel that this is a real departure for her.
It's like a cheap version of Peaches. I'm sure a whole lot of people will feel differently about that but this just has all sorts of shitty stupid electro cliches. At least Peaches is innovative when she is being ridiculously awesome.
That said I love the message of the song at the same time - even if it's glorifying her personal choice. I suppose it's her music she'll do/say what she wants.
Too bad the background music sucks. I could see this being twisted and warmed into an amazing Dresden Dolls song.
