    While this is their debut release, there is a sense that Dog Is Dead are still growing and maturing as a band.

    While this is a confident and at times sharply written debut, there's little to suggest that Dog Is Dead bring anything new to the table.

    [The album] lacks anything distinctively their own. [Dec 2012, p.96]

    It may not be groundbreakingly new, but All Our Favourite Stories is one of the most entertaining albums of the year.

    The rough edges that gave them their early oddball indie pop character have been sanded off in favour of earnest but uninspiring anthemic rock.

    The band sound bored. [Dec 2012, p.103]

    The zingy, careening pop of 'Do The Right Thing', and the grandiose welterweight rock of 'Teenage Daughter' are their most effective communiqu├ęs.

    Lyrics may operate in a relatively small sphere--breaking up, getting back together, talking through the night--but these are solid gold indie pop songs ornamented with real precision and flair.

    These are punchy pop songs with immediate, uncomplicated appeal.
