The Dandy Warhols are a band that don`t take themselves too seriously and always know how to make a swell and intricate record. "Come Down", their second effort, is not their best but still has some qualities and a couple of interesting ideas. Here, they throw in references to the Velvet Underground, the Doors, add a bit of brit pop, folk, lo-fi and psychedelic elements. The singles "Boys Better", "Not If You Were The Last Junkie On Earth" and "Every Day Should Be An Holiday" are the most recognizable and acessible songs, though there are other good tracks to find. The mellow moments of "Good Morning", "Whipping Tree" or "Green" create emotional, ethereal songs, showing the band`s softer side. Their slacker, cooler-than-ever, laid-back attitude is present throughout the album, turning it into an addictive listening experience. It`s a pity that some tedious songs ("Pete International Airport", "The Creep Out") make the record a bit flawed and not as good as its follow-up "Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia", but for the most part it still is a fun ride. Enjoy.
