After 5 years of hard graft the DIDs have come out with a fresh sound based on harmonies, good tunes and drawing on 60s aspects. It is not a hugely energetic affair & is basically a series of quasi-ballads coupled to great rhythms, bass & drum, & fine lyrics. Takes us from summer sounds to a gloomy failed view of life & love. Opener 'Get Low' is all of these & there is an attractive vocal from Rob Milton with some cutting lyrics "A fear of the dark is a walk in the park when you're wasted". 'Do The Right Thing' is slightly faster & with probably the most magnetic effect here "She said we are all just puzzle pieces in denial" with a beautiful 5 part Association type vocal combination. 'Teenage Daughter' is back to a slower chapter "and I get used to it" with again those harmonies. 'Talk Through The Night' was the first single lifted "me & my friends are going to talk through the night" and even if not cutting edge is a fine piece (there is a really great mix by Disco Biscuit which is the flip of the fine 7" vinyl). 'Two Devils' is more of an acoustic number with various time changes plus again nice vocals. 'Hands Down' "I know that the devil is not far & is testing us"...."Darling I'm telling you hands down" and so far the highlight with rousing beautiful harmonies. 'Glockenspiel Song' is their live favourite, and though boasting some great vocals then initially was not necessarily my favourite, but then it grows "We are a mess, we are failures and we love it" with some fine sax injected. 'Heal It' is another great one "if it can break then we can heal it". 'River Jordan' "Take yourself a pretty girl & take her home tonight" is probably the most energetic here with also interesting lyrical aspects.Read more ›

After hearing "Hands Down", "Teenage Daughter" and "Glockenspiel Song", I couldn't not buy this album.
I personally find it difficult these days to find any stand out 'indie' bands, but Dog Is Dead definitely stand out to me. There is something very likeable about them, and something captivating about Robert Milton's vocals.This album is a great mix of upbeat and calm; my personal favourites are aforementioned "Hands Down", "Teenage Daughter" and "Talk Through The Night"... Many of the songs remind me of relaxing summer evenings spent with friends. Just great to wind down to. Although I find it hard to compare them to anyone, I'd recommend this for fans of Two Door Cinema Club and Bombay Bicycle Club.

It begins with a pumping drum beat on opener `Get Low' which is soon joined by a breathy but raspy and gentle vocal line later bursting into a defiant guitar solo which mimics the vocals. Through the soft acoustic guitars Daniel Harvey's drums are the driving force, keeping the steady beat throughout `Get Low'.

`Do The Right Thing' is a happy, sunny track, much like most of this album, which contains a strong jazz inspired bass line and a memorable hook in the chorus making it definite single material. All Our Favourite Stories is full of woah's and `ooooh's making it perfect for a crowd to sing-along with, `Two Devils' is a perfect example of this as it's packed with anthemic `ooh's which make it catchy as hell.

Dog Is Dead have created an album that excites the listener as it switches from soft acoustics to loud, almost choral, three part harmonies as heard in the chorus of `Hands Down'. One thing that can be said about All Our Favourite Stories is that it's fresh, the band are passionate about their music as they've conceived a masterpiece that sounds nothing like anything or anyone else.

`Glockenspiel Song' was the first song ever released by Dog Is Dead, firstly under their own label two years ago in 2010 and then with Atlantic Records earlier this year. This song is possibly the most interesting on the album, led by a saxophone played by bassist Lawrence Cole it will be stuck in heads for days. Lyrics boast "We are a mess, we are failures and we love it" showing that Dog Is Dead are honest and real people and provide a powerful connection.

As debut albums go, All Our Favourite Stories is right up there; a diverse, attention grabbing mix of indie, folk and pop all merged into one with just a hint of jazz. Dog Is Dead have succeeded in creating a fantastic album that's bound to suit almost anyone.

GREAT CD. If you're a runner, the pace of many of it's tracks is perfect for jogging in time to the beat! Glad I bought it. Especially atmospheric for running in winter...!

I really really enjoyed this album, however I do still have difficulty distinguishing one song from another. Saying this though, it's really quite happy, and makes you feel good about yourself just for listening.

Being from Nottingham, 'Dog is Dead' have been on my radar for a while, but until i followed a link to stream a pre-release of their new album did i have any clue what the band were capable of. This album is incredible ! Loads of dynamic & energy. Super cool guitar/instrument & song arrangements... Great vocal performances, interesting melodies & fantastic harmonies all contribute to what i consider the best album i've heard for years. The album is full of 'moments' that you can't wait to happen and lyrics which take you into the heart of the writer... imagery which has a depth you'll want to muse upon over again.

'River Jordan' is my favourite track because it opitimises what i love about the album, but there aren't any bad songs so it's hard to name stand out tracks !!! Particularly love the last verse of (the Trevor Horn produced track) 'Heal It' !!!

The deluxe version is well worth the extra couple of quid, even if it's just to have 'Talent Show' & 'Burial Ground'.

Best ten quid you'll spend this year !!
