4.0 out of 5 stars Crisp and Focused Marc 14 July 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There's something immediately uplifting about Marc's 'Dandy In The Underworld' which makes it his most refreshing album since 'Electric Warrior'. Much of the musical excesses of the previous few albums (in particuar Gloria Jones ) have been cut back to leave a crisp and focused sounding album.
Some of the songs still share the traditional T Rex formula but this time they sound quite different.There's a greater emphasis on keyboards as well as less emphasis on the backing vocals which gives the album a more contemporary feel. There's also the funk influences Marc had already started pursuing in recent times.
There are a few departures on the album such as 'Teen Riot Structure' which sounds quite different to Marc's previous work.
It's debateable of course as to whether Marc would ever have become a major force again in music again but one thing is for sure with this album he put aside his private indulgences and was now the most focused he had been since 'Electric Warrior'.
Although 'Dandy In The Underworld' is quite different to Marc's early albums (pre - 'Slider')in style one thing it has in common is Marc's dedication in creating great music without being pre-occupied with everything else which goes along with it.
'Dandy In The Underworld' most definitely marked an upturn in his music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bolan's last album, and one of his very best 26 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
'Dandy' was Marc Bolan's last album before his death in 1977. It is certainly one of his best, alongside the great Electric Warrior (1971) and The Slider (1972).
As it says in the extensive sleeve notes, Bolan began 1977 by proclaiming himself the 'Godfather of punk'. Bolan was certainly one of the major influences on punk, and in this album he is certainly responding to the new music in his own way - most evidently in 'Teen Riot Structure' and 'Celebrate Summer', both excellent songs.
But this is a very consistent album. There are very few poor tracks here. The title track is outstanding, and features Bolan at his best. Bolan was a unique performer in so many ways: his voice, his lyrics and his guitar style. All are on top form here. Other highlights include 'Soul of my Suit' and 'Crimson moon'.
As with all of this series, the packaging is excellent. Clearly a good deal of effort has gone into this release. As ever, the bonus disc is interesting rather than essential, but the album itself is top notch. A lasting tribute to Marc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prince Of Players 17 May 2005
Format:Audio CD
In the early seventies, Marc Bolan was a teen idol ruling the world with his unique blend of "cosmic rock".
Most people will know his early albums, such as "Electric Warrior" and "The Slider", and his many hits such as "Get It On", "Hot Love", "Telegram Sam", and "Metal Guru".
By the mid seventies, his star had waned, much to do with his ongoing battles against drink, drugs, and a weight problem akin to that of Elvis.
It was in this period of his career that the critics to a man wrote him off.
Bolan himself knew he had problems - bloated and ill looking, he still managed to release (1974) the classic "Teenage Dream", a song which is littered with lyrics remarking uopn his own demise.
It was to be a further 3 years before he overcame his demons, releasing in 1977 (the year of his death) this now classic album, "Dandy In The Underworld".
It is a rare thing, when reviewing an album, you can't find a weak track, or "filler".
This album has none.
Each song is vibrant, classic rock, most of them are way ahead of time. The title track is an example to behold, some superb guitar playing from Bolan (why is he so underrated by the critics in this field, when both his contemporaries, and fans think otherwise ?) and neat, lyrics, and a sound as tight as you could possibly wish for.
Without doubt, Bolan was back, big time (ITV had just offered him a continuation of his own music show, which had been a great success) writing material he was proud of, and rightly so.
Listen to each track on the album, from the wistful "Soul Of My Suit", to the pacey "Teen Riot Structure", and you'll soon get the picture.
This album showcases Bolan's talent in a manner that many of his previous works failed - not least the oustanding lead guitar work on all tracks.
"Dandy" will no doubt leave it's mark on time as one of (if not the) Bolan's Best Albums - Deservedly so.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Bolan's Best 21 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
Marc Bolan left a legacy of great music behind when he died in 1977. This album ranks as one of his best. If you're a fan of the man's music and don't have this album - get it. Songs like "Dandy In the Underworld," "Crimson Moon," "Hang-Ups," "Visions of Domino" and the B-Side single "Tame My Tiger" are not only great songs, but great poems set to music: "This woman is a perfumed breeze/Greek Gods recline upon her knees/I'd freeze the sun to kiss her ear..." Edsel has done a wonderful job packaging this release. Get a copy while it's still in print. This is a wonderful album

5.0 out of 5 stars Marc rides into the sunset 26 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
Bolan's final album saw him continue his welcome return to form as he rode a wave of newly found credibility.
On the back of his association with some of the punk & new wave acts of the time,with a column in the music press & with a TV show on the go,his profile was back on the rise & his music & its influence, was being talked about in more positive terms than had been the case, for some time.
This album ditches some of the over production evident on some previous albums ("Zinc Alloy" & "Zip Gun" specifically). It also ditches the female backing singers & the overt influence of black America (as evident on "Zip Gun")
Although the preceding album, "Futuristic Dragon", was a really, hugely enjoyable romp (although, it seems to me, also hugely under rated as a record), "Dandy" seems to have a more self analytical, more back to basics Bolan at the helm.
This does not mean the record suffers as a result because it truly does not. One of Bolan's strongest records & it remains a huge sadness that it was his last.
Some great pop tunes,mixed with the inward looking title track & some good old fashion rock & roll tracks - it really is a marvellous record.
