Editorial Reviews

Grandaddyís Concrete Dunes are the rare and critically accliamed recordings that have heralded a movement towards the groupís vintage electronic textures. The colection includes 2 previously unreleased songs in addition to 6 import only tracks plus select tracks off their debut e.p. A Pretty Mess By This One Band. Also included is an out of print gem, "Why Would I Want to Die". Concrete Dunes documents the early development of Grandaddyís evolved space rock sounds, which are further in evidence on 2000's superb Sophtware Slump.

1.0 out of 5 stars not released by the band April 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I love this album...however I would NEVER buy it, it is a re-release of a previous grandaddy album, that the band did not want produced, and can be obtained from the bands website, grandaddylandscape.com.

3.0 out of 5 stars Concrete Dunes August 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Being a huge Grandaddy fan I couldn't help but buy this album. I assume anyone considering purchasing this cd already has the three proper Grandaddy LPs. If not get those first. They are all brilliant. If you still need a grandaddy fix after those buy "Broken down comforter collection". It is essentially the same disk as this missing a couple of tracks. I know what you're thinking, if there's less tracks why get bdcc instead? The reason why is that concrete dunes was released without grandaddy's permission (as opposed to bdcc) and the extra couple of tracks aren't worth selling your soul to some evil record company exec. That said all the songs are grandaddelicious so you won't be dissapointed if you do purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars songs worth swallowing a little pride for April 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
despite the evils of this collection being released without the bands' knowledge, this is quite an exception in the world of "b-sides and rarities" albums. most i have heard usually have one or two good songs and the rest leaves no mystery to why they are rare or unreleased. all of the songs on this collection are wonderful (with the exception of "sikh in a baja vw bug," which would've been okay to stay unreleased or rare), some shine more than many of their album tracks and singles. most show the bands softer side, and many tend to be sad, but there is such a warm vunerability that they don't bum you out. "for the dishwasher" is my new theme song for late night bike rides home from work, and "why would i want to die," "lava kiss," and "12-pak-599" are more new favorites to add to the wonderful list of grandaddy classics.
if you are opposed to buying an album put out without the bands' permission, do yourself a favor and track these songs down somehow. it will be well worth it. also, if you don't own the "signal to snow radio" e.p., buy it immediately...you won't be sorry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Concrete Dunes... February 21, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Please be advised that this album arrives without "Grandaddys'" input or knowledge. It consists primarily of The Broken Down Comforter Collection, which can be found in stores for less money than Concrete Dunes is selling for. The band was not involved in the decision to rerelease or repackage this album either. I think that it's probably inappropriate for me to discourage you from buying it, so I won't actually verbalize that sentiment. But you can find all these b-sides on their various singles.

4.0 out of 5 stars What the Hey July 10, 2007
By Dermot
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, surely Jason receives songwriter royalties, yes? With that said, this cd is definitely worth grabbing. In particular, it features "12-pak-599" (missing from the Comforter Collection). "12-pac-599" has great use of sound effects, sustained chords, and Jason's voice--and a faux chorale to boot. You'll think you died and went to Heaven. I suppose you might instead try tracking down one of the old singles that included it.
