    With Shake, Shook, Shaken, we get an album that has never sounded truer to The Dø’s strengths as a band.

    It's a risky move [a change in sound] that has nonetheless reaped rewards. [Feb 2015, p.77]

    The change has done them good.

    It feels like a debut record in the sense that they’re trying to do so many new things without 100% confidence, but also like a good debut record, it makes you massively excited for the future.

    Shake Shook Shaken may not be an unqualified success, but it certainly does what its predecessors couldn’t--it marks out The Dø as real contenders to keep your eye on.

    On the whole, they succeed by taking a careful layered approach. [Mar 2014, p.100]

    [Olivia Merilahti's] talent is mostly wasted, though, as the album's highlights (including sparkling lead single "Despair, Hangover and Ecstasy") simply can't justify the bland, overdone sound proliferating most of the tracklist.

    This albums is such a breath of fresh air. I think it's even better than Both ways open jaws. The songs like Keep your lips sealed, sparks,This albums is such a breath of fresh air. I think it's even better than Both ways open jaws. The songs like Keep your lips sealed, sparks, anita no!, opposite ways is best on albums. Olivia's voice in this album is just great! I love lyrics of almost all songs. Expand
