Who Killed Amanda Palmer is the debut record of former Dresden Dolls vocalist, Amanda Palmer. Unlike Dresden Dolls' albums though, what separated this album from her group's work was how bold and energetic it was.  Right within the first second of it's opening track the listener is assaulted with the heavy pounding of piano keys and marching drumlines through the haze of Palmer's powerful croons. The rest of the album doesn't slag down after that, the immediate tracks follows again with heavy pianos, orchestral strings, and crunchy guitars that compliment Palmer's roughly sung vocals.

Who Killed? is a confident ride of an album, and one that you should check out if you haven't.
