Singer Courtney Talyor-Taylor still has his deep, raspy croon, and The Dandy Warhols still create the same brand of lo-fi indie pop they are (un)known for. Little has changed, so "This Machine" should still appeal to fans. However, there's not much to grab the attention of new listeners.
"Rest Your Head" is among the stronger tracks, but "I Am Free," with its carefree trumpets sounding off in liberation, is the standout.
There's also "Alternative Power to the People," however, a strange and chaotic instrumental that contributes very little to the album.
Later, there is an uninteresting blend of folk and psychedelia on "Don't Shoot She Cried."
At least there's a certain honesty and integrity to most songs - just not much innovation.
