    Sick album. So much melody, so much heart. Every track is unique and builds and builds to a crescendo. A very uplifting album actually. One of my favourites. Beautiful vocal harmonies too. A real passion for music being displayed here.

    This album doesn't have anything special, easy songs, easy music, easy vocals. They are just a band like thousands in the world. Someone can explain to me how this album could be ranked with a 10??

  1. It’s a fun mess, and although heavily indebted to 60s psyche folk and acid rock, Astronomy For Dogs has a verve and colour that saves it from derivative pastiche.
  2. As with the Beta Band, exploratory self-indulgence is rather the point of the Aliens, but here it's firmly anchored by fantastic songs.

    Every one of these 11 songs is a work of wayward genius. [Apr 2007, p.106]
