491. The Dandy Warhols - thirteen tales

The Dandy Warhols are a tough band to peg, especially from one release to another. On this album they stick to two categries pretty much: slow whispery fuzzed out pop melodies and basically alt country (it's not really that simple but for the sake of this review let's make believe it is). The 'whispery fuzzed' out stuff is great - catchy, interesting to listen to from begining to end. The country stuff just sort of sounds like lazy songwriting. I have the Japanese edition that contains the great ac/dc cover 'Hell Bells'.

7.7 out of 10

Godless
Hells Bells
(notice how the beginning of 'Godless' sounds like Promise Ring's 'Size of your life'?)

Schmeder, young lady SATAN bless you. Is that better? Anyway, thanks for participating in this blog. JRD you have to appreciate that someone is asking about where you are in relation to the blog. Did you answer her?

Anyway, I actually just got into the DW. Nat picked them out of BMG. I always got the wrong impression about them. This is a good album. They may even show up on the mix. how about the first three in a row. Also track 8 kicks ass like so much volleyball
