    an average release, nothing special. May bring back some good ol memories of beta band, but it lacks good songwriting and lacks the witty humor of the former lead singer of beta band. Feels like a dumbed down version of beta band.

    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]
