Editorial Reviews

Now acting as masters of their own destiny, The Dandy Warhols are back and ushering
in a rockin return to form with Earth to the Dandy Warhols, the band s debut on their
newly minted label, Beat The World Records. The album is quintessential Dandys, pulling
together the diverse sounds and influences that have always characterized their music,
and full of the same dry vigor that s made them world famous.
From the Some Girls-era Rolling Stones-meets-Talking Heads Welcome to the Third
World, to the campy Mis Amigos, to the psychedelic rock of Beast of Saints, Earth
to the Dandy Warhols is pleasure ride that allows you to fully enjoy the trip while still
keeping you on your toes. The band reached out to their friends, too, inviting Dire Strait s
Mark Knopfler and the Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell to join in on the rollicking
Love Song. Earth to the Dandy Warhols serves as a stunning platform into a new era
of the Dandy Warhols career and places the band firmly in the ranks of rock s elite class.
The Dandy Warhols first album, Dandys Rule OK? came out in 1995 on Tim Kerr records.
Soon thereafter, Capitol records signed the band to a long-term deal, releasing The
Dandy Warhols Come Down (1997), 13 Tales From Urban Bohemia (2000), Welcome To The Monkey House (2003) and Odditorium
or Warlords of Mars (2005). Over the course of their career, the band have collaborated with the likes of Nick Rhodes (Duran
Duran) and David LaChappelle (who directed the Dandy s video for their hit Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth ), as well as
supported major artist arena tours, from Tom Petty and David Bowie, to summer treks in Europe with the Rolling Stones.

From the very first notes of "The World Come On," I knew that the mediocre critical response to this new Dandy Warhols album was dead wrong. I've been hooked on the Dandys since "The Dandy Warhols Come Down." I love the way they build songs on amazing grooves, sometimes hard-rocking, sometimes slow and hypnotic, sometimes both. Taylor-Taylor is an extraordinary vocalist and mimic, sounding alternately like Lou Reed, Ric Ocasek, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, or anyone else, however he sees fit. And the others are absolutely rock-solid in their ability to add support and muscle to Taylor-Taylor's creations.

Their last album, "Odditorium," was a truly bizarre mess. At first, I found it very off-putting, but it grew on me over time, mostly because of the Dandy Warhols' impeccable sense of rhythm and harmonies. "Earth to the Dandy Warhols" is another ecclectic weird-out, jumping from genre to genre, the only real connection between the songs being the unique flavor of the Dandy's sound and the layered, dense production.

I can really see why someone new to the Dandy Warhols would have a hard time "getting" this cd or liking it very much. I'm not sure I would quite understand what it was all about if I hadn't spent so much time with their other albums. For newcomers, I strongly suggest checking out their previous cds before jumping into this one. "The Dandy Warhols Come Down," "Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia," and "Welcome to the Monkey House" are all more consistent than this album. But once you've checked those out, I'm sure you'll find plenty to love on "Earth to the Dandy Warhols" as well (even if you find yourself skipping the final song, "Musee D'Nougat" more often than not).

I like Valerie Yum (an ode to Valium?), but the rest of the CD is very average stuff. I was hoping for a total rebound from Odditorium, but unfortunately the Dandys are heading in the wrong direction. What happened to the cool stuff you could play over and over again??? This sounds like a mish-mash of songs that wouldn't make it on their earlier CD's except for Odditorium...If you are new to the Dandy Warhols then buy Dandy's Rule, OK? or Come Down, I hate to say it but I guess they may never be that good again!

I am a Dandys Junkie. Cant get enough.Really love Odditorium despite the critics. Their dreamy/psychdelic retro sound is something to groove on. But I must say I was truely dissappointed with Earth to Dandy Warhols. Maybe the wait and build-up/expectations was too much. Truely dissapointed with Taylors vocals. Too synthetic and difficult to hear at times.This disc sounds more like monkey house though not as good.I think they strayed from the essence of their sound. Still looking forward to seeing them this month for the first time though.

No shoegazing here, the feets are moving too fast...This is DWs most accessible album yet, and their most uptempo, pleasantly likable album to date. It begins with a B-52s/Talking Heads like pop tune that establishes that the Courtney man is after the song first and this continues on through 12 bouncing, driving guitar-driven space tunes that has nice alt-country in Love Song and even brilliant doo-wop, sock hop meets space opera in the OutLaw Trucker song and fills in all spaces through their catalog with clearly genius plain and simple pop songs like Mission Control and Now You Love Me.

The Dandy's keep getting better and more expansive with each album and the sheer energy of this album eclipses anything they've ever done.

I'm going to see them at the Vic with Darker My Love and The UpsideDown!
See your there!

(Also, there is a 13th song that is an elongated quiet drone that is added purely to be listened to if the previous 12 songs were accompanied by some fashionable drug of your choice... As usual, they have to put the Warhol into their name with some throwaway, misdirection that distracts from the cohesion of the whole album and this one does. Oh well, They wouldn't be Dandy without Warhol..)

Owning all of the Dandy's previous work it was a no brainer to buy this, maybe it will grow on me but so far nothing has really captured me. I think it is as good as their first album which is their weakest in my opinion. It just an album that never gets you into it. Maybe it will slowly infiltrate my brain? It does have some interesting sounds much like the different sounds that Garbage used to come out with but in Dandy's sort of way. If you are a Dandy's fan you will need to buy for just that reason. If it would have had a couple of my powerful songs I wouldn't been so hard on this album. Greg

This album goes well with the progression of The Dandy Warhols.

If you aren't into Disco and the groovy beats that reside in that genre (though not the lyricism style) you should steer clear of at least half this album.

But if you were a fan of Odditorium and Welcome to the Monkey House, and you can handle a disco-ish beat, you will enjoy this album.

I recommend it to any Dandy Warhol fans. Also David Bowie and Lou Reed fans should definitely see what those two musician's legacy has spawned in indie rock.

Thanks,

Brother Rabbit
