    It's a record that reveals previously hidden depths. [Nov 2011, p.93]

    No matter how likable all 10 of these songs may be, there's something missing here.

    Just as Only In Dreams confirms this bunch of self-anointed femme fatales as an impressive songwriting outfit, it's stands as a warning that their outwardly-facing facade is wearing thin.

    There are no standouts or outright bombs, just 10 Dum Dum Girls songs; no more, no less.

    There are some songs to love, but you can only take so many variations of the same theme.

Still, a very good record from a band to keep an eye on. Full Review »
