The Webb Brothers: Maroon; Dandy Warhols: Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia

Art Sperl, Rock's Backpages, December 2000

There were crunchy hooks and pining sad-boy harmonies aplenty, not to mention a big Stephen Street production with lots of bottom end and pretty details – strings, horns and keyboards in abundance – up top.
