  • Summary: Velocity Girl's Sarah Shannon guests on Eric Bachmann's fourth Crooked Fingers release, which was co-produced by Martin Feveyear.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 16 out of 20
  2. Negative: 0 out of 20
  1. Dignity and Shame is just another day in the world-weary lovelorn characters that Bachmann has so vividly brought to life for the past five years with his Crooked Fingers entourage.
  2. 83
    These songs are both sturdier and more complex. [Mar 2005, p.92]
  3. It's easily the artist's most cohesive, polished work.
  4. His pieces match open, lovely music with lyrics depicting people in struggle.... Individual songs take on various moods, but the album never dips fully to the bleak.
  5. 70
    Finds [Bachmann] in a maudlin mood. [Apr 2005, p.108]
  6. While the concept fails to stand up over the album's narrative arc, the songwriting is solid as ever, and Bachmann and [Lara] Meyerratken's combined voices will soothe even the angriest beast.
  7. Absolutely the least offensive record you will probably not hear this year.
