I'm not going to shy away from saying how much I love Amanda Palmer, but when I heard about Evelyn Evelyn I was a little skeptical. It's obviously a novelty act. And novelty acts can really come off on the corny side. Fortunately Palmer (and project co-twin Jason Webley) didn't shy away from everything that makes the concept gimmicky, because within its hokeyness lies its heart. I say that Evelyn Evelyn notches up another success for Palmer, who in my opinion is one of the most innovative musicians in indie today.
excerpt... Modeled as a carnival attraction itself, this Vaudevillian act is filled with show tunes, boisterous instruments, and silly lyrics. I dare to say, it all works magnificently.
