4.0 out of 5 stars Where have you lot been hiding!!!, 6 Sep 2005
This review is from: Turn Against This Land (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.
