Persistence, diligence alongside originality handsomely pays off to the committed. And to the committed I don't mean those in the funhouse, although one could surely argue that elements of such resonate happily throughout the self-titled work of art of Boston's fleeting best-kept secret, the Dresden Dolls.

With their unique jaunty, spiraling tapestries richly tapping into the playful, black and white haunting theatrics of the long ago Weimar cabaret days spliced to find a sweet relevancy a century later, The Dresden Dolls have certainly zeroed in on a rewarding niche that has artists old and new begging for an association. Why else do the dynamic duo of Amanda Palmer (vocals, piano, toy piano) and Brian Viglione (drums, percussion) continue to find more and more marquees and stages worldwide to display their wares? With inclusions ranging impressively between opening for NIN's recent North American tour as well as slots at fests such as Coachella, Download, Glastonbury and Roskilde and next Fuji Rock and Reading, expect a long lasting run for DD.

Though released in 2003 on 8 Foot Records, 'The Dresden Dolls' has now found more distribution for their infectious creative cookings captured here, begging to be seen and heard. Opening briefly with a toy piano eerily similar to Bonnie Tyler's, "Good Day" changes directions in its ominous ascension as Amanda breaths life into it, gaining strength as she bangs away on her piano alongside Brian's appropriate punctuations. Continuing unabashedly throughout 12 numbers, their production flows next into the frantic, relished ravings of "Girl Anachronism," as this refreshingly unexpected outfit from North America revels in all the trappings and joys of an era gone by. Whether through the tiptoeing "Missed Me," the lamenting "Half Jack," the walking play of "Coin-Operated Boy", the banging, slapping truth of "Gravity, " or the racing, octave swirls and crashes within "Bad Habit," Dresden Dolls shall indeed be giving "mankind a beating." But this beating has never been more needed or enjoyed. Line-up! The curtain is about to be raised.
