Review of The Lemonheads
by Cameron Gordon

From Chart Attack September 2006

In 2005, Evan Dando managed to resuscitate The Lemonheads with the help of a few famous friends and a spell of clarity. Surprisingly, he's managed to parlay this into the first new Lemonheads disc in 10 years. And it ain't half bad, which is a feat in itself considering 1996's Car Button Cloth kinda blew. Ex-Descendents Karl Alvarez and Bill Stevenson help flesh out Dando's meandering pop/country tunes, leaving this self-titled effort positively 1993 in spirit and sound. Dando's lazy drawl is in fine form, and "Become The Enemy" and "Baby's Home" ooze with that slack-jawed romanticism that made Dando one of the most sought-after hunks of the original grunge era.
