The album is a great listen with many catchy tunes and atmospheric rock. Bohemian Like You remains one of my fav tracks of all time.

American Brit-Pop at it's best. Rated too low on this site. Derivative yes, boring, no way. For me this album is far more enjoyable than the far from derivative Kid A.

"Bohemian Like You" is a really great song but the rest of the albums sounds boring and derivative (album rating: 36,92 %)

Every one knows Bohemian Like You and rightly so it’s a terrific song. As for the rest of this album IMO it’s so so with a bunch of average tracks. Welcome To The Monkey House is my preferred DW album

The Dandy Warhols are just a bunch of guys from Portland that needed some music to drink to. I would certainly drink to this too. This was their 3rd record, one that I missed at the time somehow, even though these songs were present on TV shows, commercials and movies from the era. The best tracks here are "Nietzsche" and "Bohemian Like You."

Draws upon many influences and wears them on it's sleeve. It's a quality album with dreamy melodies and a muted tone. Funky, intelligent and catchy. Too bad they have the personalities of douches.

From ~SMiLE~
The Dandy Warhols' run through a gamut of influences on "Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia".

"Godless" opens this album with an acoustic guitar reminiscent of George Harrison's 'My Sweet Lord' and takes turn into a Burt Bacharach vibe... A spacey psychedelic "Mohammed" has a chilled Beatleish tone... "Neitzche" falls in with a raw grind...A rustic feel from a slide guitar and banjo on "Country Leaver" ... "Solid" is a fuzzy upbeat jangle ... A shoegazing "Horse Pills" pounds it's way through it's own sleaze... The restless sing-a-long "Get Off"... The tranquil ballad "Sleep" gently drifts... The radiant psychedelic "Cool Scene" has a Byrds' warmth... The super catchy "Bohemian Like You" has that Stones thing going on... An Iggy/Velvet Underground nod rumbles through "Shakin'"...Buffalo Springfield infused "Big Indian"... The twangy melancholy of "The Gospel" rounds out this is eclectic album.

Dense, bright, melodies wrapped in a slacker vibe. Every song is a keeper. Sonorous warmth, luscious guitar overdubs and beautiful harmony filled songs cross-fade to give a continuous atmosphere. An excellent album.

The first 3 tracks flow and meld perfectly together, Bohemian Like Me is one of my all-time faves but the whole thing is great. I could listen to this one over and over and over and then the first 3 again. Perfect road trip album.

Upon a first listen I can understand people finding nothing special about this one. It sounds a lot like Odelay or Blur's self titled, and arrived about six years after those two. But when you think about the albums it (at least seems to have) influenced such as Gorillaz self titled and Demon Days LPs and a lot of the samples that Danger Mouse used on Broken Bells and The Good, The Bad, and the Queen, you can see that Dandy Warhols actually enhanced a mid-90s sound as well as anybody that came before. This album definitely out-classes the works of your Dishwallas, Better Than Ezras, Everclears, and your Marcy Playgrounds. Pity that the world was sick of this sound by 2000. Standouts include Mohammed, Get Off, and Nietzsche.
