Album Review

On the surface it might seem like Shame, Shame is more of the same from Dr. Dog, and in many ways it is. They still sound basically the same and still write great rock tunes straight out of the early '70s. But there are some key differences from their past albums as well. They've brought in an outside co-producer for the first time (Rob Schnapf) and scaled back the production excesses of Fate. Don't worry; Shame, Shame still has all the sweet backing vocals you'd expect and plenty of interesting/oddball production details, but it's the songs that are at the forefront, not the production. And while they don't seem autobiographical or even specific, the lyrics sound more like they're drawn from real life, giving an added depth that hadn't really been there before. There's also a bit more of a world-weary undercurrent, but it's never sad or depressing (probably just a symptom of too much touring). But that said, this is still a Dr. Dog album and it's bound to put a smile on your face. These guys have a real knack for making classic-sounding rock & roll and Shame, Shame is the sound of a fine band really hitting its stride.

Customer Reviews

Life after Fate is great

In the spring 2005 I fell in love with an album by a band I had heard nothing about until a friend of mine made it the soundtrack to our road-trip. The album was Dr. Dog’s Easy Beat and it drew me in from song one. The only problem: The whole album was just over a half an hour and so it was over before you knew it. Left wanting more I went out and bought the back catalog and it still wasn’t enough. Five years later and three albums since that spring I can’t help but revel the growth of Dr. Dog and my appreciation for their music grows with the band. Shame, Shame is another great step forward in the life of this awesome band. I would recommend this band and this album to anyone I know. Life after Fate is indeed great!

veterinarians rule!

i just wanted to express my appreciation to dog doctors everywhere! seriously though, this is a great album. Not sure its better or even as good as fate/we all belong but it is still damn good and where'd all the time go is one of their best ever. i'm normally a bigger toby fan, but the scott songs on this album are really strong. already excited for whats next and to catch them live again soon. buy this album! Also I have no idea why I can't make it say that this isn't by Will Hermes, a possibly fictional rolling stone reviewer.

Biography

Formed: 1999 in Philadelphia, PA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

The Philadelphia-based Dr. Dog are part of a long tradition of D.I.Y. pop oddballs who blend unapologetic '60s pop worship with lo-fi recording techniques and an apparent disregard for current trends. The group began as a part-time offshoot of the more traditional indie rock act Raccoon. Over the course of several years, guitarist Toby Leaman and drummer Scott McMicken found enough free time to record the casual, sprawling 35-track set The Psychedelic Swamp in a basement rehearsal space, finally...
