5.0 out of 5 stars Very consistent, 28 Sep 2007
I enjoyed "Turn against this land" a lot, and it doesn't happen that much that a band that had a great debut manages to release a follow up just as good. But it happened twice this year first "Favourite Worst Nightmare" by Arctic Monkeys and now "Tall Stories from Under the Table" by The Dogs.

This is a brilliant album from a Clash-influence band (mostly in music but also in lyrics) that holds on to its own characteristics as well. This album is definitely among my top favourites from this year.

And I hope more people get the chance to listen to and appreciate this great music.
