Product Description

US pressing of the 2008 album from Portland, Oregon's favorite sons (and daughter). Earth To The Dandy Warhols delivers to those diehards - and a whole new era of Dandy-ites, a nostalgic fistful of the sounds, images and charged feelings that first turned us on to them - the sex, the swagger and the innate knack for stunning hits. Not to mention myriad new avenues of sonic wonder. This record perfectly surmises the Warhols career to date and is surely going to blow your mind. Highlights include the opening track 'The World The People Together', which the band gave away as a free download on their website, and `Love Song' which features guest appearances from Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers' Mike Campbell. 13 tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Dandys Gem Aug. 21 2008
By Brandon J. Smith - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
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).

After spending some serious headphone time with this, I'd say it feels like a cross between "Odditorium" and "Monkey House." It's got the sprawling, loose feel of "Odditorium," but it's sleek and punctuated by electronics like "Welcome to the Monkey House." Like all Dandy Warhols albums, though, it's decadent, chock-full of grooves, and gorgeous.

3.0 out of 5 stars Val-Yum Yum Aug. 20 2008
By Kule Stuff - Published on
Format: Audio CD
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars DISSAPPOINTED Sept. 15 2008
By J. Smith - Published on
Format: Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danceable Dandy's Rule, Ok? Sept. 12 2008
By Tankery - Published on
Format: Audio CD
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..)

3.0 out of 5 stars Disapointing maybe they weren't on enough drugs Sept. 13 2008
By Greg F. Gray - Published on
Format: Audio CD
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
