  1. If nothing else, Astronomy For Dogs should be heralded as a step in the right direction after six long years of wandering.
  2. Though occasional glimpses of that trademark Beta Band brilliance appear, Astronomy For Dogs fails to act as much more than a reminder to listen to Anderson and company’s former glories.
  3. Good as it is to have these dudes back, their reunion sounds disappointingly anticlimactic.
  4. Disappointing, frustrating and exhausting, 'Astronomy For Dogs' finds a band trying too hard to cram too much into one sitting.
