  1. This is still a Dr. Dog album and it's bound to put a smile on your face. These guys have a real knack for making classic-sounding rock & roll and Shame, Shame is the sound of a fine band really hitting its stride.
  2. 90
    After five full-length albums, Shame, Shame finds Dr. Dog far from having exhausted their creativity, sounding more passionate and frenzied than ever on what is a lasting testament to their showmanship and remarkably consistent songwriting.
  3. The point is, there's nothing not to like about Shame, Shame unless you're looking for some inscrutable puzzle to solve. However, if you want something you can just sit back and soak up, well, missing this album would be the real shame.
  4. It's an album of confusion and carpe diem, which might explain why its two best traits are its psychedelic bent and liveliness.
  5. These 11 tunes stretch out over 40 minutes like a yawn after a good nap, and they're nearly as refreshing.

    Good garage band stuff. The songs are a little unformed and not catchy, but you have to admire their energy.
