  1. Hold it by its edges and the experience of this album suffers––the rocky center is where we find personal truths writ well.
  2. Ultimately, We All Belong hints at the band's innocuousness. Nothing here offends, but there's nothing anywhere near compelling, either.
  3. While the album revels in retro cross-pollination, and the title track's dream that "It won't be long before we all belong to love," echoes Lennon's counterpoint of responsibility throughout, Dr. Dog's zealous frivolity is infectious but ultimately fleeting.
  4. Dr. Dog simply doesn’t offer us anything new, or anything else worth listening to.
  5. Those vocal harmonies are used to good effect in the blue-eyed-soul tune 'Alaska.' But 'Die Die Die,' a slow and raggedy piece of psychedelia complete with funereal organ but thrown askew by out-of-place handclaps, is far too taken in by its own gloom.

    An almost perfect album that over time has become perfect.

    This is one of the best albums I've heard in a long time.

    If you're in a band and hold the Beatles, the Beach Boys, and the Zombies as your cornerstones, then this album (and band) is for you.
