I just got it today, I'm going to listen to it tonight. I know it's going to be good. I love Dr. Dog to death.

Gotta say with the hot weather I love blasting this around in my car. It's a really good album for a sunny day.

Haven't listened to these guys before, but I get the Beatles connection immediately (not that it's a bad thing).

gotta give this a few more spins. dr. dog are great, but i still feel like their high-water mark is "we all belong". "fate" was good, but in my opinion not mind blowing. thus far i've felt the same about "shame, shame".

it does sound great though. rob schnapf did a great job with this.

Everyone compares them to the Beatles. Use that as your jumping off point.

What just about everyone else says about this band is bunk. Comparing this band to The Beatles is incredibly reductive, as if there's a short list of bands that have drawn influence from the Fab Four over the past 40 years. A more accurate comparison, if we're going with current bands, would be My Morning Jacket or Band of Horses without the reverb. The one vocalist is even a dead ringer for Bridwell at times.

Saw them in 06 and loved them. Just picked this up and haven't really listened to it. Saving it for the weekend.
