I've always loved the Dandy Warhols moody mucic. Sexy, but slightly melancholic. Most of the time with a hint of decadence. The voice, the soundscapes, the lyrics, the overall atmosphere. Yes I'm a fan. And don't get me wrong I'm still a fan. But not in love anymore.
I was excited when the album came out at last. They kept us waiting far too long.
First impression: Wauw, nice songs, hmmm, a little bit short though.
OK, let's play it again and again. And there it is, that's what disappoints me. The album is a just a collection of (nice) songs. It has no alluring atmosphere.
There's no Dandy Warhols world created here. The muse has left the band.I've read that each bandmember has other more inspiring projects running and that's something I think I can hear.
Sure, there are pretty good songs on the album, Slide p.a. is magnificent and my 3star review indicates this album is GOOD, but not GREAT.
I'm afraid they've had their last high a long time ago.
