Sep 30, 2013While it shouldn't be a surprise for a Dr. Dog album to be a beautifully crafted slice of psych-pop goodness, the magic of the band lies in its ability to consistently beguile listeners with a sound that shows all the mark of genuine craftsmanship, something B-Room delivers from start to finish.
MagnetOct 18, 2013It all makes for what might be Dr. Dog's career-defining work. [No. 103, p.54]
UncutOct 31, 2013The rest of the album freewheels around American music with a virtuosity and spontaneity that belies the group's indie-rock roots. [Dec 2013, p.67]
Under The RadarOct 1, 2013These tunes are ripe and ready for picking, the fruitful results of a band that grows infectious melodies by watering them with good instincts. [Aug-Sep 2013, p.89]

Oct 1, 2013A review by someone who just peruses the Dr. Dog catalog will say, "More of the same, good songs, but not compelling." I have listened to Dr.A review by someone who just peruses the Dr. Dog catalog will say, "More of the same, good songs, but not compelling." I have listened to Dr. Dog for years, seen them live five times and KNOW that they are great American songwriters.
This album takes the familiarity and gives it a new life; the production and subject matter is the most diverse of any of their albums, resulting in what I would say is my new favorite Dr. Dog album.
I hate when a band feels stagnant, like time hasn't passed, (Beach House, a prime example). Albums run together, songs lose their meaning. Dr. Dog has delivered an album that takes up its own place in the void of nameless indie-pop groups that all rely on new midi and drum machines sounds to differentiate themselves from the other voice identical to theirs.
Dr. Dog finds a new voice with each album; the progress is essential.
I always think of what the next album should look like, and I would love a total departure from past efforts for any band; Dr. Dog seems to take the next step naturally, reflecting the motions in life that pull us to a new personality or perspective.
