  1. 7.0 |   Rave Magazine

    Dominated by melodic swirling Dandy rock songs, conveniently (and quite mercifully) trimmed of unnecessary indulgence
    Read Review

  2. 6.5 |   FasterLouder

    This Machine is nothing revolutionary in the progression of The Dandy Warhols. However, it is a unique hybrid of cheek and aloofness

  3. 6.0 |   DIY

    'This Machine' is both an attempt to recapture the glory days and a sad admission that it can't be done

  4. 6.0 |   Consequence Of Sound

    This Machine is not the result of the Dandys turning a corner or shifting direction, but rather taking the best of where they’ve been and applying it to where they’re going

  5. 6.0 |   The Digital Fix

    These Dandies prove that a machine doesn’t have to be built out of entirely new parts to be well-oiled and run well

  6. 6.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    This Machine is pleasant, demonstrating solid musicianship and offering a diverse range of songs. However it is inevitable that the Dandy Warhols’ efforts will always be compared to that of their early years

  7. 5.8 |   The AU Review

    This Machine is by no means a great record, but it is an enjoyable one that’ll put a smile on your face and brighten up your day if you let it. Which is what pop music is for, after all, and kudos to The Dandy Warhols for still being the hippest pop whores in the business

  8. 5.1 |   Pitchfork

    This Machine seems like an apt title for a record that surges forth with a wiry, motorik momentum; by the end, it becomes an all-too-fitting descriptor of a band going through the motions

  9. 5.0 |   Spin

    Alt-rock vets get goodly greasy weird on "16 Tons" cover, otherwise stay stuck in '90s neutral
    Read Review

  10. 4.0 |   Pop Matters

    Easily the shortest and most abstemious thing the Dandy Warhols have ever put out
    Read Review

  11. 4.0 |   The Scotsman

    It is a shame that such counter culture savvy should fizzle out like this
    Read Review

  12. 4.0 |   Q

    Once regarded as calculating careerists; now anything but. Print edition only

  13. 3.0 |   No Ripcord

    Perhaps, they do have a message that is profound, but it has been catastrophically shrouded in vanity that pervades most of the tracks, if not all

  14. 2.5 |   A.V. Club

    An album that finds the Warhols increasingly lost in their own echo chamber of invented cool
