May 28, 2013With a running time of nearly 70 minutes for just 12 songs, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here can be overwhelming; the arrangements of several songs are amorphous, and tunes such as “Phantom Limb” and “Hung On A Hook” could benefit from an editor. Despite these small quibbles, the album is solid.
Jun 2, 2013Certainly nothing groundbreaking here but if you're familiar with AIC's past work, this won't come as a surprise. Their philosophy seems to be: if it ain't broke, why fix it?
If you're not a fan of this band's earlier music then you almost certainly won't like this album. If you are a fan of their past work then you almost certainly will like this album. I love it...… Expand
May 29, 2013Jerry Jerry Jerry you are a genius. Alice has returned with their 2nd most amazing album yet (you all know what the 1st is). Heavy bass lines, intelligent guitar tracks and unique harmonizing vocals make this one of the greatest rock albums of the year. My only complaint is the standard drum tracks and standard production. Which is strange because those two elements are from musicians that are known to be excellent in their field (Raskulinecz excellently produced One by One and the previous Alice outing Black Gives way to Blue). Besides that this is a great album from an amazing band.… Expand
Jun 19, 2013After Black Gives Way to Blue, was very high on AIC. TDPDH doesn't live up to BGWTB, but it is still a very good album. Hard and great lyrics with great production. There are a few too many tracks that I skip over though...but those tracks are not to the point of deleting off my iPod. Good album. Pick it up… Expand
Jun 6, 2013I basically grew up listening to them so i’m biased (i’m pretty much always biased but the reasons are different so i like to specify why) but here i am trying to crank out a few words about this record.
It all sounds good, a little “boring” for my taste but there are some moments that make this listen worthwhile, it’s great that they got back together after everything but i don’t think that this record is able to add anything else to what they already tried to say in the past, and more importantly they don’t add any evolution to the genre.
A good listen but don’t expect too much. Is it entertaining? Sure.… Expand
