  1. As far as 2008 sleepers go, this album’s near the top of the pile. Don’t Be A Stranger is good advice, indeed.
  2. So while Don’t Be a Stranger may run on a bit too long, that’s hardly something to complain about. In fact, that is exactly the point of the record, of the beautiful sounds the Moondoggies are making.
  3. It's a down-home, countrified party, even if its orgins are from up north. [Fall 2008, p.81]
  4. Not enough of Farmer or Poor Richard. Not enough sweat and gunpowder. They are intent on a tent shakeout, but no one’s pitching it.
  5. Enjoying the Moondoggies, though, hinges on being able to accept a couple of Seattleites in their early 20s digging so earnestly into the '70s.
  6. Don’t Be a Stranger is a charming collection by a confident and competent group of musicians, but its drawback is its same-ness.
