BBC Review

The Dandy Warhols' sixth album sounds like a great party record from the next room, but closer inspection reveals it to be more grindingly repetitive than transcendentally exciting. Not that the album is without highpoints, since the band have a knack for addictive riffs and a welcome line in self-depreciating humour. But a question remains as to why you would choose this album over any of their others.

Earth To The Dandy Warhols is the band's first release on their own label, but anyone looking for a track to match either Last Junkie On Earth or that Vodafone ad theme, Bohemian Like You, will be disappointed. For many listeners, this is may be the first new material encountered in the wake of the film DiG, which documented the tragicomic rivalry between the Warhols and the Brian Jonestown Massacre and, arguably, revealed the former as synthetic wannabees. However, criticizing the Warhols for being arch is like criticising the Pope for being Catholic.

After umpteen television and film placements, they at least wear their success lightly, and the album does play to the band's stoned and sardonic strengths, with an expensive and intricate production. They still sound more Gary Numan than Iggy Pop (particularly on current radio favourite, Mission Control), but at least the failed seduction of Welcome To The Third World sees the funny side of their faintly ludicrous white-boy funk. As on their previous albums, the songs consistently flow into one another, but this heavily-crafted sequencing is also the band's undoing, since the lack of variation eventually becomes wearing.

By the second half, the album has the desperate air of someone trying to get to the end, without quite achieving the glorious dumbness they seem to be aiming at (for instance, on Valerie Yum). Taken as a whole, the album suggests you have to get out of it to get into it, but the flipside of that is the growing sense of an unwelcome, brutal and premature musical hangover. On which note, the album's last track, the indulgent and pretentious tone-poem, Musee D'Nougat, is definitely best avoided. --Tim Nelson

5.0 out of 5 stars Dandys back in stunning form! 1 Aug 2008
Format:Audio CD
After the mixed reception for their last album "Odditorium", "Earth to the Dandy Warhols" will come as something of a relief to some fans who thought they were losing their way. Still in the Space vein the music is full of Dandys style riffs, grooves and sound effects (which i enjoy) and it really rocks! The album is of course littered with typical Dandys' musical signatures too, especially "And Then I Dreamt of Yes", all 13 tracks are very very good - a mixture of styles and rhythms (even a little Rolling Stones style take on "Welcome to the Third World" which includes a James Brown style riff), the production is crystal clear, the album is a grower - "Monkey House" still gets played regularly in my house, and "Earth..." is every bit as good, and looks like being another very successful album for the band - Dandys rule!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still in orbit 1 Sep 2008
By Mark Thomas VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
After an initial honeymoon period I learned to hate Odditorium Or Warlords Of Mars, the Dandy Warhols' previous full-length work, having originally given it five stars here but ultimately falling out of love with a sloppy collection of distracted noises haphazardly recorded just so they could get their friends' voices on the CD. The tidier sounds of Earth To The Dandy Warhols come, therefore, as a great relief and the album as a whole is a far more satisfying listen.

The Dandy Warhols are never conventional, yet there is a surprising feel of musical normality trickling through much of Earth To The Dandy Warhols. Indeed, it seems they have received the message of rejection aimed at their satellite of late and have, in general, tightened up the sprawling mess of sounds that was Odditorium, while at the same time deploying the array of scratchy guitars and bassy rumbles we have come to expect from them and make them unique.

The World (Come On) opens the effort beautifully with clanging bells and a clipped guitar riff which propels the song wonderfully, before melting into a rare moment of savage rawness in Mission Control's opening bars and the funky twangs of Welcome To The Third World. Love Song bounces along nicely with a neat banjo accompaniment, and Mis Amigos - a re-branded version of inter-album single "Me And My Friends" - is entertaining if mildly repetitive. Unusually for the Warhols there are echos of other bands threaded through the music here, from U2, INXS and R.E.M. to a splendid twist on James Brown, yet they manage to mix in Zia's keyboards and a plentiful supply of extra effects to keep the sound their own throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spaced Out Sounds. 24 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some people were disappointed with the previous album, Odditorium or Warlord of Mars (I wasn't) However this should convince a lot of people that Dandy Warhols can still make tunes.
After the more commercial rock sounding albums 13 tales and Odditorium they return to a mixture of Welcome to the Monkey House and Come Down, a sort of spacey, electronic, psychedelic sound however this takes .

Courtney vocals weaken as is inevitable for singers, the voice is the one instrument that sadly does not always sound the same. However instead of trying to hit the high notes Courtney intelligently uses his new low raw, rough and yet melodic vocals to his advantage specializing in his low singing, and it sounds damn good. For example in Mission Control, Mis Amigos and The Legend of the last of the Outlaw Truckers. Courtney however does sing high in 'The World the People Together' and it sound like an outtake from Welcome To the Monkey House.

Album Highlights:
>The World Come On - Brilliant starting track with Screeching vocals, heavy synth and the most danceable song on the album.
>Mission Control - The lyrics are truly relatable especially for an older generation, with this grungy song about being forced to grow up.
>Welcome to the Third World - A retro, disco tune with a damn funky bass line and humorous lyrics. "Your lips, they sure do, match my wallet".
>Love Song - All the critics highlightthis song as a high point and they're not wrong, featuring crazy fingerpicking and Banjo this is a smooth folk-rock pastiche.
>Valerie Yum - It's about taking drugs and it's damn trippy, you can't help but chant Valerie Yum along with the Dandies it's damn infectious.
>Beast of all Saints - Sounds like the druggy sister song to Godless.
