The Dandy Warhols Earth To The Dandy Warhols
The Dandy Warhols always exuded a mixture of arrogance and confidence that both won them adoration and scorn, and their sixth album, Earth To The Dandy Warhols, isn’t likely to change opinions. No longer trying to gratify a major label, they have made exactly the kind of album they wanted, for better or worse. Earth To The Dandy Warhols isn’t a bad album but it doesn’t have much in the way of surprises either. They’ve used all the tricks they’ve learned over the years, such as extended psychedelic jams and a mix of glam and garage rock, but that still doesn’t make it a particularly interesting album, as they’re just throwing as much stuff as possible at the wall to see what sticks. And while some of it sticks, quite a bit doesn’t. They’re at their best when they stay focussed and keep the songs shorter because as time goes on, the rewards diminish somewhat. Not their finest work but still an improvement over its predecessor. (Beat The World)
