I'll admit it. I'm opinionated and difficult to please, which is why when I fall in love with an album I tend to get codependent, shack up with it, listen to it two or three times a day for weeks on end, drunk, sober or high, and then dump it, used-up and heartbroken, with nary a backward glance. Except that this time through, I'm seriously thinking of going to the new drive-in wedding chapel they're opening on Lyndale Avenue, and making it official. After a month, maybe it's a little premature, but by this point I always hate something about a band, at least one of the songs irritates me, then the production, then the singer or the drummer, but the most I can say at this point is that I'm sometimes more in the mood to hear the dreamy harmonies and sad lyrics of "Sleep" than the joyfully snotty boho anthem of "Bohemian Like You". Noone has ever written a better song about the pain of long-distance relationships than "Phone Call" (on the bonus live/B-side CD), and it's the perfect antidote to the crap on corporate radio and the lame clubpop and boring mathrock/whiny emo on college radio. So, I think this one might last, and as much as my pride leads me to want to give a four star review, we all know love is stronger than pride... and you'll know that soon enough if you don't already. Go buy this thing: the soundtrack to your bohemian life has arrived.

Have owned this Cd for about two days and i love it
From the quirky opening of Godless, the chilledslide guitar of Mohammed and the harsh riffs of Nietschze the album opens with a glorious stack of songs that won't leave your mind for ages.
Then things only get better - the singles Get Off and Bohemian Like You are similarly catchy and sandwhich the sublime Sleep between them.
Overall there's not a bad track on the album, and although showing obvious influences from the Beatles and The Velvet Underground, Thirteen Tales is a thoroughly interesting collection of music.
Make this your soundtrack for the Summer

Dandy Warhols, possibly one of the greatest. Thirteen tales from urban bohemia, a smashing success by all accounts. Even without the help of a certain phone company. Most of the tracks on this CD give you and impression its just a continuation from the previous CD (this is not a bad thing as the second album was just as good as this one.) But then they through in tracks like Get Off with its Western style, Country Leaver, with a story we can all identify with and the up-beat Bohemian Like You, with its Rolling Stone Intro, the track Sleep could quite possibly put you to sleep with its fantastic slow pace. All in all this is a fantastic album with a lot of new and old styles coming from the dandy's. It would certainly be a shame for someone to buy this album and to only listen to one track because its on a advert. Buy this album listen to it from start to end and if you like it buy the first two albums before the true new one comes out early 2002.

The sound of this album is similar to "...Come Down," but far more dense and, dare I say, experimental (what's with the DJ on Shakin'?) The songs are still easy, the chord changes never change, and the fun never stops on these Thirteen Tales. Bohemian Like You is a perfect example of why most people love the Dandy Warhols lyrically. (I really love yer hair-doo,yeah/I'm glad you like my doo, see we're lookin' pretty cool) There's something so validating about hip kids making fun of themselves that us un-hip kids feel like we're allowed to do it, too. Musically, the album doesn't vary much. I personally get the best high from Nietzschen though Sleep gives us some amazing(ly easy) harmonies to float away on. All in all, the sounds captured on this album are just about perfect and the overall feel is good (by any means neccessary.)
Complaints? Not really. Just that being addicted to "Come Down" for three years (almost a once a week habit sometimes) I was kind of hoping that they'd learn a few new chords and maybe some songs that you can't sing 75% of their other song's over the top of. But until then, I'll give them the "we're trying to be Spiritualized, but we can't afford the drugs" leeway and listen to this album as much as I can before I have to detox.
Highly recommended.

Very few albums have repeatedly blown me away like this one (said after many years and many more albums). This has such texture and wide dimensions that it hooks you with serious longevity. It fills you with a beautiful, calm, exciting feeling of wonder, apathy and intent. This is an achievement in music, and is one of the best, and coolest, albums in my entire collection. It spans genres, and performs the qualities of multiple genres with supreme expertise (garage rock, ambience, anthemic hooks). If you don't own it, you should.

I bought this album on the strength of the singles, 'Bohemian Like You' and 'Get Off' and they are by far the defining classics on the album. However, elsewhere is a wonderful mix of slow rock and sweeping melodies, particularly 'Sleep.' The first track, 'Godless' is a fabulous, gentle opener while 'Mohammed' follows on in similiar style. There are a few tracks which sound like throwbacks to the Wild West era particularly Country Leaver but that's what makes the Dandy Warhols so different from any other band around now. Towards the end of the album, Courtney Taylor bizarrely starts to sound like Thom Yorke of Radiohead but it is a credit to his vocal ability and the diversity of the band's song writing. Well done!
