KatieSDec 18, 2008I effing love this album... I don't rarely disagree with so many critics, but I think anyone who rated this below an 8 may need to check his/her blood pressure. It's an album that feels good to listen to every.... single.... time you put it on. Enough already, Pitchfork. This is brilliant.… Expand
LindsayMAug 4, 2008I am in love with this band, and Pitchfork seriously needs to stop knocking anything remotely listenable. Why the hate, Pitchfork?
markdAug 22, 2008Amazing. Tone-deaf reviewers who chide for use of choo-choo need to get over themselves. A truly great record by a truly great band.
AlexJul 26, 2008Much more mellow than previous albums, and they pull it off so well.
DaveF.Jul 29, 2008Gorgeous.
IlyaRAug 13, 2008As far as melodic, upbeat classic rock with R&B and psychedelic infusion, it really doesn't get better than Dr. Dog. This album is not any more or less remarkable than either of their two other albums. They all do the same thing, and they're all fantastic listens.… Expand
EliCApr 8, 2009Well, after loving their first two albums, I was very disappointed to learn that Dr. Dog have now discovered computerized pitch correction. (And they seem the enjoy using it. A lot.) Gone are the realistic lazy harmonies of their previous releases that really sounded like there were 3 guys right in the room with you, trying their best to hit the notes, and coming just close enough to make it work. Listening to "Fate" is more like a computer is in the room with you, synthesizing artificially-perfect vocals with perfectly-tracked drums. The sound is entirely too polished to make the whole vintage thing work. Tube amps are appropriate. Teen-pop production sparkle is like, so not. The songwriting lacks something as well. I'd never wanted to skip a Dr. Dog song before this album.… Expand
