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.


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.


Like reformed alcoholics who were more fun when they drank, This Machine is alternately sullen and unconvincingly earnest, and inoffensive to a fault.

No Ripcord

I can’t believe for a single second that this is the music that invigorates them to believe in what they’re doing.

A.V. Club

An undistinguished slog of an album that counts an atrocious cover of “16 Tons” as one of its many grating moments.

Purchasing This Machine from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
