Die-hard fans probably own every CD already.
D. Burke
There's hardly a stinker in this greatest hits collection, and it gives a good sampling of each of the bands' Capitol Records albums.
T. A. Daniel
Capitol spent almost nothing on the cover or the disappointing booklet insert, but at least the music shines.

Revised for Ease of Understanding

Here's the thing about the Dandy Warhols: they have two very different sides. One is lyrically clever and madly in love with pop music. The other is noisy, dark, and bass-heavy, with elements of grunge and (sometimes) elements of prog rock. Though occasional songs bring these sides together, Pixies-style, usually they are quite separate. The Dandies have not had many hits, especially in the US, where their only single to chart ("Bohemian Like You") didn't even crack the top 100. They've done better with TV and film, supplying the "Veronica Mars" theme song, for example, but the big-time success they deserve has eluded them. And in recent years, even Europe has gone off them. So the idea that this album is a collection of "greatest hits" is ludicrous. It's a collection of songs, a career retrospective, and a reviewer who knows the band well has a right to assess it.

What I don't like is that the collection overemphasizes the pop side of the band. It's not that I don't love that side; I do. But some of their best songs (the hard-rocking "Minnesoter," the majestic "Nietzsche," the powerful, grinding cover of Neil Young's "Ohio," to cite just three) are miles from pop. Moreover--and now we're reaching my point--in marketing the band, the clever, pop side has always been emphasized, starting with the band's too-droll-by-half name, which I think a major miscalculation. I can't count the number of people I've turned on to the Dandies who said to me, "Yeah, I've heard of 'em, but I always assumed they were a bunch of art-school pussies." (Note to art students: I'm quoting.) It's the pop tunes that are in the media, and, presumably, they have drawn the audience they're going to draw.

An excellent compilation from one of the better indie rock bands out there (now touring by the way.)

I read L. King's review and have to disagree. With maybe one or two exceptions (yes, Minnesoter probably should have made it), this is exactly what a "greatest hits" CD should be.

Die-hard fans of ANY band are going to have favorites that don't make it on the greatest hits CD, but that's not the point. Die-hard fans probably own every CD already.

This CD is for someone who likes the Dandy Warhols but maybe has only heard a few songs here or there and wants to listen to more. Or someone who doesn't already own every one of their CDs.

I got this CD for a couple friends of mine who listened to "Bohemian Like You" and both really liked it and wanted to hear more. They love it.

So don't lose sight of what this is - a greatest hits CD. And it's a darn good one!

(as of my posting the price is $7.49 which is fantastic too!)

The Dandy Warhols' "The Capital Years 1995-2007" is a great selection of some of the bands' most immediately accessible material, and I would recommend it as a good starting spot for anyone curious in the Dandy Warhols. With that said, this collection does not have much to offer for anyone who has already made their plunge into the Dandy Warhols' discography. The only new material here is the album's closing track "This is the Tide," which is a decent enough song, but it lacks the pop-wit and precision that has made the band semi-popular. There isn't enough here to justify a purchase for someone who already familiar with the band.

However, the listener is new to the band, this would be a great place to start. There's hardly a stinker in this greatest hits collection, and it gives a good sampling of each of the bands' Capitol Records albums. The songs are placed roughly in chronological order: a nice touch, giving the listener the chance to hear the evolution in the bands' sound through the years. This collection includes the Dandy Warhols' slick electronic sounds ("We Used to be Friends"), pop sensibilities ("Not if You were the Last Junkie on Earth"), dreamy textures ("Godless" and "Good Morning"), and chaotic garage rock ("Smoke It").

Similar acts include Brian Jonestown Massacre, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Eels, and Ivy. I would recommend "We Used to be Friends" or "Bohemian Like You" to anyone who still isn't sold on buying this album quite yet.

If you are looking for good 90's fare- this is it. Contains all the tracks you would hope it does.

I have found that the more I listen to it, the better I like it.
Tracing the band from their garage band days to the more sophisticated arrangements of the Capitol years where they were challenged to write and do more with pop arrangements, they proved they can do different styles and do them well. A good place to start if you're just getting into the group. Best cuts: Godless (that trumpet hook keeps coming back in my head), Bohemian Like Me, The Last High, Get Off, and the odd falsetto vocal of Plan A, co-written with Evan Dando of the Lemonheads (that one comes back in my head in a spooky way!). Capitol spent almost nothing on the cover or the disappointing booklet insert, but at least the music shines. The Dandys were largely panned but remain greater than their criticisms. These tunes are not just 90s, they're timeless. And you don't have to be a stoner to enjoy them, as I have proved.
