The Dandy Warhols - Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia (2000) Retail CD
The Dandy Warhols take a lot of guff for being posed, insincere, and party-addled. The irony is thick enough to use as a construction material: it is in fact this appearance of pose that IS the pose. Ultimately, the joke is not on the listener, though, as the post-Velvets/post-13th Floor Elevators confections that they (regularly) drop with such casual nonchalance betray a workmanship and a sensitivity to songwriting that tips its hand. This is not a band of party-hardy dilettantes, but an informed and eclectic group of talented musicians who probably have stupefyingly impressive record collectionsmore…. They (wisely) steer clear of change-the-world soapboxing and churn out anthem after anthem -- and "13 Tales" is their magnum opus (so far).
There are weaker tracks, where the pose is overplayed, like "Horse Pills" or "Solid." But on the whole, "13 Tales" carefully balances bombast with craft in such a seductive way that lyrical foibles are quickly forgiven and the cohesive, anthemic whole -- thick with winking guitar and snaky organ riffs -- becomes as satisfying as morning sex.
