Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Power pop bands are often caught in a quandary.

    chill style

    The Dandy Warhols are one of my favorite bands, capturing that catchy psychadelic style of the late sixties that most of today's music has lost. Courtney-Taylor has such an ear for harmonies and this album is produced beautifully. At first listen, only song titles like Minnesoter, Not if you were the last junkie on earth, and cool as kim deal caught my ear. After a second listen, the Dandy's vibes start to hit home and songs like Good Morning and Every Day Should Be a Holiday begin to settle in. They have a very distinctive sound and though a mix of song styles, this album is one of my favorite. I just gave it four stars for credibility.
