    It's no coincidence that the cover art for BABY I'M BORED mimics that of the Lemonheads' punky debut, HATE YOUR FRIENDS. Coming after several years in the wilderness, Evan Dando's first album under his own name, and his first release of any kind since 1996's wildly uneven CAR BUTTON CLOTH, finds him looking for a new beginning. Dando doesn't, and maybe can't, duplicte the heart-on-sleeve, recreational drug charm of his 1992 classic, IT'S A SHAME ABOUT RAY, but BABY I'M BORED marks a return to the acoustic feel and cohesiveness of that album. For his fans, older and wiser like he is, it's a treat.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (5/03, p.116) - "...Compelling....Dando wraps his stoner drawl around 12 frank folk-rock songs..."
    Uncut (01/04, pp.84-7) - Ranked #42 in Uncut's "Albums Of The Year 2003" - "[A]n affecting and humane collection of songs."
    CMJ (04/28/03, p.9) - "...Leave[s] behind all glimpses of the grunge and punk rock trappings that salted past Lemonheads releases, leaning mostly instead on mid-tempo acousti-pop and ballads..."
    Mojo (Publisher) (01/01/04, p.59) - Ranked #9 in Mojo's "The Best of 2003" - "[An] endearingly ramshackle album of guileless love songs..."
