...The Dandy Warhols Come Down is the second studio album by American alternative rock band The Dandy Warhols. It was released on 15 July 1997 through Capitol Records. The album featured a change in style from the garage rock- and shoegaze-influenced sound of their previous album, 1995's Dandys Rule OK, to a more psychedelic and power pop sound. It is the final album with founding member Eric Hedford, who was replaced by frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor's cousin Brent DeBoer in 1998.
The Black Album
The band's first effort for Capitol Records was an album which was recorded before Come Down called The Black Album, which was rejected by Capitol for, according to frontman Courtney Taylor-Taylor, containing "no songs". It was released as a double album in 2004 with Come On Feel the Dandy Warhols, an album composed of B-sides and previously unreleased material.

...The Dandy Warhols Come Down has sold 103,000 copies as of 2008.
The album has received a generally positive reception from critics. AllMusic criticized the album's consistency, writing, "the band has talent for not just punchy hooks but for layered sonics as well, but they don't know how to meld the two together." Rolling Stone, on the other hand, called it "the most exhilarating '60s-into-'90s excursion yet attempted by an American band", following with "if this is The Dandy Warhols coming down, the mind boggles at the thought of them flying high."
The album was included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
All songs written and composed by Courtney Taylor-Taylor, except where noted.
