    An almost perfect album that over time has become perfect.

    The joyous piano finale to "Old News", the album's first song, is a perfect microcosm of what's to come on the album. These aren't just uniquely catchy and happy songs, but there is a musical consistency that shows why this album is worthwhile from start to finish. Pay attention to when the bass and the piano are in sync - those are some of the best moments on the album.

Anyway, these guys bring out the best of the hopeful, quirky and energetic interplays of 60s classic rock, and the dog's cameos, though more sporadic this time out, are still a delight. Expand

    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.

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

  1. We All Belong is a little bit cleaner and dressed a little bit nicer than "Easy Beat," but the rustic appeal of the music still comes through loud and clear.
  2. We All Belong is phenomenally consistent.
  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.
