Product Description

Product Description

In Summer 2004 Dogs went wild in the country. They recorded an album that bristles with vitriol and the twelve tunes are delivered with a sneer and a sarc'y grin. The double A-side "London Bridge" and "End Of An Era" was hailed as "the debut single of the year" by The Times.

Follow up single "She's Got A Reason" contained a classic example of Johnny Dogs' unique song writing ("I liked you better when you liked me as well....". Elsewhere, the superb "Tarred & Feathered" displays why it's such a live favourite amongst the burgeoning Dogs fan base and "Wait" is surely an all time classic love song moshing down the indie disco.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Historic Debut Album! 1 Aug 2005
By Mr X
Format:Audio CD
I was going to review this track by track and give you enough to read to that you could make up your mind on if you thought that it was worth buying. Let's get that bit out the way now...BUY IT! If you half liked any of the 4 singles that have been released, you'll love the album.
They've already mastered a Dogs sound, even though this is a debut. Okay, there are obvious influences in there like The Clash, or The Jam, but they are just that, influences. They've managed to take the feeling that these bands have and create Turn Against The Land, a debut album that will stand out in any music collection.
London Bridge, End of an Era, Tarred and Feathered, and Tuned to a Different Station are all there, all future classics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where have you lot been hiding!!! 6 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
Well as an indie fan desperatly seeking some inspiration of late with the same old commercial bands kicking the backside out of the industry...i found...Dogs!!!!! I'll be honest after the 1st listen a few songs stood out, track 2 selfish ways, slow start great chorus quite thrashy/punky..quality, then track 6 it's not right, again really upbeat song you want to get up and jump about to, track 7, tuned to a different station is a much more mature song of some depth which i think compliments this band totally, this is what Dogs are about, mixture of thrashy guitar chorus to subtle guitar verse. I think this song is the best on the album. Track 10, heading for an early grave is again a thrasy song full of energy.
All in all Dogs have delivered an album which is a breath of fresh air, Full of energy, really gets you going just when you though indie was a dying breed!! Agreed there are other bands trying to portray a similar sound but these guys do it very well. Album needs a few listens but if you want an album that gets the blood rushing a bit. Buy dogs..turn it up loud and enjoy. Great debut album.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best debut records ever made 15 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
Maybe that's a sweeping statement, but i'm blown way by this. I buy about 10 albums a month and this is one of the best records I've come accross in quite some time. I'd heard mixed reports about them and i think that's cos they're the kind of band you'll either love or hate. If you're just after some kind of libertines replacement (which is how some of the press seem to be weirdly positiong them) then don't look here, because while there are up-beat, punky if you like, songs on here dogs come accross as both more talented musically and a lot more real/passionate than doherty and co ever were. There's also a few slower songs on here like donkey and wait which are great to chill out to. It's difficult to say in a nutshell what this album sounds like, but if The Jam meets Pavement meets early manics sounds appealing then buy it and you won't be sorry!

5.0 out of 5 stars An underrated classic of this decade 3 Aug 2007
By Rudy
Format:Audio CD
How Dogs are not more highly rated is beyond me. This really is a great debut album. It sickens me that so many radio dj's will jump on the bandwagon readily enough but not many seem to stick their neck out and actually try and big up someone other than the more obvious bands. It seems looks or style are more important than the music these days. When you think of the praise heaped on bands like The Strokes and Kings of Leon, neither of whom have released a real classic album, the lack of praise for Dogs looks even more ridiculous. If The Strokes and Kings of Leon were a bunch of ugly, sweaty heffers from Runcorn, there would not be half the interest that they generate. Anyway, enough of this bitterness. Dogs are a brilliant band, fast paced, almost frantic songs with great vocals from Johnny Cooke. Hard drums and some great riffs really make this an exciting album. The lyrics are excellent as well.

"I went and burned my bridges at the weekend
and now there's nothing but another week to end
And a sick and sunken soul in a drunken body like mine
From London bridge i swim east along the tide." London Bridge

"Too much coke
Broke another mirror
Shattered into ten of me
Not one see's any clearer." End of an Era

"I suffer from a lack of concentration
Still got faith in my generation
My brain's just tuned to a different station
And i miss you." Tuned to a Different Station

This is a great album from this decade and smokes most overhyped albums out now. The best songs are London Bridge, End of an Era, Tuned to a Different Station and Heading For an Early Grave. If you like rock music then this is for you, trust me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack of my summer (if not life) 25 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
T in the Park 2005 an event which will remain in my memories forever, but now i know that it could have been so much better. All around the festival were album posters of up and coking artists, i saw the DOgs one it stuck in my mind and after the festival (and missing Dogs play) i read some reviews and decided to give them a try. Well my god what can be said about this band, i don't know about anyone else but they managed to perfectly capture my feelings on most of their tracks, Cookes lyrics are on par with our generations best (IMO Doherty, Barat, Skinner) and the music just makes you want to dance or jump or shout whatever it is it certianly has it and it certian songs will evoke memories that will have you grinning through gritted teeth, simply fantastic without a doubt album of the year!
