  1. Earth To The Dandy Warhols finds the band back in track in all the best ways. [Fall 2008, p.80]
  2. Merging the sounds of space rock with an element of trance and a smattering of early Velvet Underground experimentation, the group ends up with an enticing album that holds a fresh mix of sounds.
  3. They may have no defining sound of their own, but they're admirable recyclers. [Oct 2008, p.141]
  4. They were better as clever corporate whores.
  5. 40
    [They've delivered] a spawling 70-minute opus devoid of drive or inspiration. [Oct 2008, p.83]
  6. If the lyrics were cleverer, they might work as a critique of vacant rock culture, but instead they come across as the embodiment of what they profess to be sneering at.
  7. Earth to the Dandy Warhols is as much of a joke album as "Metal Machine Music," except I don’t see any rock ‘n’ roll scholars finding anything particularly smart in this slop 20 years from now.
