(5 out of 5 stars)

"Division of Laura Lee are from Sweden and are therefore part of the 'Swedish Invasion,' but don't think this is a Hives knockoff or a (International) Noise Conspiracy retread. No, DOLL prefer to fuse their punk energy with red-blooded rock 'n' roll, new wave flourishes (in a good way), and in some cases a dark goth mentality.This combination is sweet and intoxicating, like a perfectly blended screwdriver. Balls out rockers like the opener "Need to Get Some," "Access Identity," "Black City" and "Second Rule Is" rub elbows with ethereal slow-movers like the claustrophobically superb "Trapped In" and "I Walk on Broken Glass," but nothing feels forced or contrived. The rockers move and shake like nothing yet this year, and the slower songs give you a chance to breathe and think for a moment before your head gets rocked again.This may be a bold statement, but here it is: DOLL are better than the Hives, and I love the Hives. Don't pass this up."
An album worth buying

"With all of the hype around the Hives, Refused(R.I.P.) and International Noise Conspiracy you may think they were the only Sweeds worth checkin out. But oh how wrong you were. Division of Laura Lee's Black City is a good solid rock album comparible to early Jesus and Mary Chain and Pond. This is a wonderful record from begining to end & I strongly believe this is the best over looked album of 2002. Buy it."
Good songs...

"I wasn't aware of Division of Laura Lee's Swedish citizenship when I first heard their music, and knowing that now makes more sense of their garage-like sound. I was expecting more of a punk-rock sound from this band, seeing as how they share the same label as Pennywise and NOFX. Their sound is pretty rock and roll, but in a more ...Trail of Dead, At the Drive-In way. If you like a heavier rock sound with a more moderate pace and stronger melody and clear vocals, you should like Division of Laura Lee."
