Dandy Warhols - Dandys Rule OK (1998) Retail CD
The first part of this album is really great, with lots of melodic, flowing numbers. The second half doesn't do it for me personally (that is basically to say that I think the producer should have arranged the songs differently, not that it bothers me, just that it may have been received better had he/she done so). To give you some sense of what this album is like, imagine how you probably know the Dandys, i.e. from Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia, and then combine this with a kind of easy Brit-pop and early American "alternative"sound, i.e. early "Feelies" stuff, and you're about there Imore… like this album lots and consider it to be an undiscovered gem. You can definitely feel elements of what the Dandys will later evolve into, but this album without difficulty stands on its own and not just as some first step on the road to something "better". Not as psychedelic as their later two albums, but that is neither here nor there, in my humble opinion. I bought this just after it had bene released years ago and could sense that the Dandys were something special (although I also sensed that they'd be a commercial success and not just a great band destined to disappear into obscurity, held in esteem by a few connoisseurs who bother to look outside the main charts). Unquestionably more toned down and "pure" rock that their later two albums. Courtney Taylor (sounds like he ought to be living on a trailer park with that name, or is it just me - probably just me...) doesn't exhibit the vocal pliancy that he does in the later albums and you get a sense of what he sounds like when he sings naturally, not that I don't like him when he's doing his whole "other thing"vocally, i.e. Iggy, Beatles-stylee etc. vocals. I'd buy this, but as I said only the first half shows any musical development with some nondescript also-rans filling up the other half (the runts of the album if you will). Definitely a must-buy for Dandys fans.
