The Dandy Warhols have been around for nearly 2 decades, during which they've gone from the cool underground to big stars (for a Portland band) to critic's whipping boy. Their ironic rock star posturing and modest success (major label, opening for fan David Bowie) are at odds with the indie/punk orthodoxy of the city, which may explain why they're somewhat ostracized from the otherwise tight knit scene. They always been proudly apathetic and too cool for school, which can explain the mediocrity of their past few albums. They may have recognized this themselves, calling one album "Earth to the Dandy Warhols." This 2003 album is the last time they made much of an effort, adding some keyboards, working with Duran Duran's Nick Rhodes and producing 2 of their catchiest singles. It sounds better now, as it was a little ahead of the curve in terms of rock bands embracing electronics and synths/keyboards. They are still great live.
