The Dandy Warhols seem like they should be a great band -- they bring together shoegazing, Brit-pop, lazy grunge, and Velvet Underground-style grittiness, all with a wicked sense of humor. Despite all this -- and despite the fact that Dandys Rule OK? is fairly well written -- their songs tend to slip by unnoticed, never really leaving an impression. The band seems to be at its best when it parodies other bands: "Lou Weed," "Ride," and "The Coffee and Tea Wrecks" are all affectionate pastiches of their namesakes, and "The Dandy Warhol's T.V. Theme Song" is a fine bit of bouncy pop. Unfortunately, none of the album's more clever segments stand out, buried as they are in a murky mess of forgettable material.
