I was never particularly struck by The Gardener until I listened to it on No, Virginia... through headphones. The opening minute or so where Amanda is whispering over the sparse bass line gives me goose bumps - it's almost like she's stood right behind me, making it seem sooo personal.

Awesome just doesn't begin to describe it, but my vocab isn't up to much so it'll have to do...

I got the leaked version but, i felt so dirty that i wasn´t able to listen to it, i just leaved in that zip file and i am going to open it just so i don´t have to import the cd to my computer.

It took it 7 days for my copy to arrive and it cost me like a million dollars but, it was worth it.

Mine arrived today in Melbourne from Newbury. It appears it was held up in Sydney's customs.

I was bored in a record shop yesterday and found my hands wandering to the Dolls section. This is possibly unforgivable considering I'm possibly Brighton's biggest Dolls fan, but I was shocked to see No Virginia there - didn't realise it had been released. The speed with which I rushed to the counter was lamentable given my current financial situation (I'd gone in to get Paper Television by The Blow, which I also highly recommend checking out).

Anyway, being a music critic and all, I have to admit I was a bit cynical about this record. Nyah, I know it's the Dolls and all, but any other band who had been together for the time they have and only released two records would be treated with suspicion releasing a load of B-sides and rarities with an expensive accompanying book.

It's fucking blown me away, and I've only listened to it twice (some tracks several times, of course.) I don't have a personal computer, so I've never been able to get any of these songs, download obscurities, check out footage, interviews etc. I'm glad for that, because hearing these songs for the first time has been incredible.

probably i'm the last one of this board to listen "No, Virginia..."



believe it or not.... i've not listen "No, Virginia..." yet !!!



i will listen it until July, 20.
i know that the album is actually at my home already.

it's been a hard discipline to keep my mind away of the virginia archives site.

At first I was like, this song is not for me.  And I skipped over it.
Then I started listening to it more and more.
Then it made me cry and I was hooked.
Now I listen to everyday in my car.
