    Why You So Crazy is fun for the brain and the body. Weird enough to find something new with every listen, while remaining as slick and infectious and delightful as much of the Dandys’ dandy discography.

    Why You So Crazy is the sound of a group that--reasonably, at this point--discern no reason to start being anything other than themselves, and is accordingly laced with trademark Americana, stomping glam, droll boogie and the occasional addled aberration. [Feb 2019, p.26]

    Why You So Crazy is indeed a reflection of their uniqueness and disregard for predefined musical categories. In doing so, they manage to be both entertaining and exhausting; likely, an intentional contradiction.

    At once slight and overdone, Why You So Crazy is one of the least rewarding trips the Dandy Warhols have taken their fans on during their career.

    The disappointingly flat production was applied to a set of tracks that more often present themselves as sketches rather than fully fleshed songs. Moreover, this LP just gently passes you by, revealing itself to be devoid of any truly memorable songs.

    This album is, surprisingly, a steady, droning psychedelic experience.

    It sounds like a bunch of stoned musicians listening back to half-finished tracks, believing them to be mind-blowingly revolutionary. [Mar 2019, p.115]

    I think the critics reviews have been unfair. Yes, It is 'all over the place' but in a good way. This is the sound of The Dandy WarholsI think the critics reviews have been unfair. Yes, It is 'all over the place' but in a good way. This is the sound of The Dandy Warhols cutting loose and having fun. Their best album in years. Expand
