So how do you follow up an album like 13 tales? an album that mixes rock, country and western, disco, funk, perfect melodies and sheer intelligence?
Simple, you rope in the keyboard player from Duran Duran, keep the same pop sensibilities with wicked lyrics and irony and go electro.
As mad as it sounds it works and damn does it work a treat.
With so many guitar bands and the huge emphasis on everyone of the having 'The' in the name its nice to see a band as good as The Dandys continue to stand out loud and proud from the crowd with a collection of songs that may take a few listens but soon manage to crawl under your skin and mark their mark.
You Come In Burned is a 7 minute epic while in a perfect world the Evan Dando co-written You Were The Last High would be number one all summer.
Monkey House is a brave move by a band that so easily could have continued to make guitar driven music, instead they have given fans and critics alike a new sound to dig their teeth into - expect a little distain from the 'cool' press but don't be too surprised to see Martin Gore and Vince Clarke on the new Strokes cd in six months time when the rest of the world catches up with The Dandys.
Put simply, do your ears a treat, turn off The Strokes and The Stripes and put on The Dandy Warhols.

How does a band follow up a classic album such as '13 Tales From Urban Bohemia'?

In truth, it would have been very to match it but they have come very close with 'Welcome to the Monkey House'.

This is an album which shows that the Dandy's are not short of ideas or inspiration. Certainly, they are clearly cherry-picking ideas from their favourite artists, but the net result is a very likable and cohesive album, once again packed with quirky lyrics and great melodies.

The highlights include the title tracks and 'Scientist', which was used to great effect on the 'Brainiac' television programme.

4.5/5

Having acquired the full catalogue of Dandy Warhol albums over the last three years, I can certainly say that they're always willing to try something new. The band have moved from the grungy, guitar-laden debut album ("Dandy's Rule OK?"), through the self-indulgent, textured sounds of "...Come Down", to the almost country-esque "13 Tales...", and now gone retro with "Welcome to the Monkey House".
This album is noticeably shorter than previous offerings, only just edging towards 45 minutes, whereas before we've been spoiled by CD's lasting over an hour. But I suppose that's where the band is heading - into shorter, punchier, more listenable territory. The guitars have been thinned out (which, I must admit, scared me a lot at first), and techno bloops and bleeps brought in to pad out the ever-competent vocal work. And the sounds work well - it's an effortlessly cool collection of sing-along numbers, without any real stand-out tracks (with the possible exception of radio friendly "We Used to Be Friends"). But I can't help feeling there's something missing. Tiny, 1-minute snippets like the opening "Welcome to the Monkey House" and "The Dandy Warhols Love Almost Everyone" promise much, then suddenly vanish, and even the traditional Dandy Warhols '...when is it going to end?!' close-out track feels somehow under-supported.
Nevertheless, it's an excellent, smooth and groovy album, guaranteed to get your toes tapping and your throat constricted, trying to match the falsettos and high-wire work on "Plan A" and "We Used to Be Friends". However, anyone expecting more "Bohemian Like You" may well find themselves listening for something that never appears.
All in all, it's ALMOST the best thing since sliced bread, but the cut loaves of the previous albums JUST get my vote ahead of this one.

More like Welcome To The Funky House, where the beats are hard, the vocals are slick and the sounds are damn hypnotic.
I'll seperate my review into 3 parts

THE VOCALS: Courtney Taylor Taylor sings higher than ever before although it doesn't sound over edited, he still keeps his gritty drawl where it suits him like in fantastic Burned,the badass Hit Rock Bottom and the title track. His range is damn impressive.
Courtney's voice is accompanied sometimes by Brent Deboer and Zia Mccabe who surprisingly have very good vocals. The Harmonies actually work really well.

THE LYRICS: They are humorous in places(I am a Scientist) however the lyrics are repeated a lot, that's what makes the songs singalong songs, You'll be chanting "all of us sing about it" or "we used to be friends", The Dandies deliberately do this, pop/electronic songs aren't known for their in depth lyrics, in fact all the album lyrics appear on the inside of the Cd.

THE SOUND: The songs can be divided into 2 sets, the dancefloor and the passed out on the floor.
Half of the songs will have you on your feet, chanting the choruses and the others are perfect for late nights and a joint.
Although Electro songs are known as boring, uninspired and repetitive the Dandies successfully shake off the misconception with a range of instruments and vocal layers this may be some of their best songs.

A lot of fans may have been worried the dandies would destroy their legacy after the guitar led masterpiece 13 tales but when the Dandies switched genres they nailed it.
