Album Review: 'Rock 'N Roll' (2004)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Nov 02, 2004; Lead Performances: John Lennon and New York Dolls; Genre: Rock

With their back-alley, blues-based trash, the early-'70s Dolls became a model for punks as well as lesser glam androgynes like Mötley Crüe. This lamely titled offering (which includes three previously unreleased cuts) mostly succeeds in its choices, but to compile a 20-track anthology of a group that recorded only two albums makes one wonder: Why not just rerelease those?
