The deeper I get into Billy Idol’s discography, the harder it is for me to reconcile his solo work with that of his previous outlet, Generation X. Idol was “punk,” with quotation marks, but Gen-X, that band was a legitimately solid pop-punk act. The group’s second album, Valley of the Dolls, makes a case of the band’s relevance. Produced by Mott the Hoople frontman Ian Hunter, himself no stranger to finding the right balance between pop and rock, Dolls is a crucial listen for those looking to explore British punk’s history.
