AHHHHH Dear Jenny!

Finally I can find out if singing it to the tune of "My Favorite Things" was appropriate or not.

Thanks for the info, doritojoe, I'll be looking forward to this.

Hm. I would have traded Pretty in Pink thirty times over for a cleaned up version of Night@theRoses.

Glass Slipper...
Bank of Boston beauty Queen...
Thirty Whacks...
The Time Has Come...

 :'( :'(

I'm guessing though, that the song from the video must have been Dear Jenny then.

This still looks to be a world better than YV.

I'm a little sad about the exclusion of Kaledrina and Thirty Whacks, myself.
But the inclusion of Dear Jenny and The Kill (even though I knew that was coming) makes it better.

Dear Jenny, Ultima Esperanza, The Gardener, Boston, Night Recon = epic win
Lonesome Organist re-release = space would be better spent on something else
lack of Night @ the Roses, Glass Slipper, Kaledrina, Will = should be in there where Lonesome Organist is

In spite of that, I think I'll quite enjoy this record. At least as much as YV, and maybe even almost as much as the self-titled.

Oh my goodness, Pretty in Pink is so out of place! But I'm very excited about this anyway. Especially Night Recon. OH MAN.  O0

Aweeesome! Finally some news on No, Virginia.
I'm not disappointed at all about the addition of Pretty In Pink and Lonesome Organist, at least the Dolls get to properly release them.
Though I was really hoping for a clear studio recording of Thirty Whacks, even though I knew it was unlikely. It would've sounded better on a grand anyway.

I totally wasn't expecting the Sheep Song, but I'm excited anywho.

I would also like official proof of this.

only thing i can source is a release date - May 19 (in the UK). Amazon.co.uk and play.com are both accepting pre-orders.
