I don't really write the most coherent reviews, but just trust me on this one. It's not a record to be passed up.
PS: see them live.
PPS: buy the album.
From the drum intro to "The World May Never Know," I was hooked. The plodding, rolling rhythm just tows you through the entire song as if you were in a parade. Tables' seering vocals and heavy bass carry through "The Pretender," a melody-shifting tune that reaches full potential when the band performs it live. Plus, what band uses the word "raize" in their songs? Not many. "Oh No" is also a crowd pleaser live, and why not? with its sixties-pop grooves and sing-along outro. Great guitar work pops up all over the title track, from the tremolo-picked intro to the arpeggio fills. The album takes a solemn breath when it hits the haunting "Dutchman Falls."
It's a well needed break, before side two kicks off with the screeching, noise-meets-motown beat of the hit "Fool's Life." A bit of a desperate track, the choruses of "Say Something" build to epic sonic heights, while the mention of barbecues and lemonade in "Today" brings a backyard-party calm to the record. Finally, with a Beatles-esque beat, more sing-song background vocals, and a raucous acoustic breakdown, "Wake Up" closes Easy Beat beautifully.

I discovered Dr. Dog last summer, and "Easy Beat" was my first exposure to the band. The harmonies are excellent and very Beatles-like. Read morePublished on July 25, 2008 by M. Blevins
This is a CD which you can play over and over and still get enjoyment out of. It is a charming album of brooding non-sensical but utterly ingenious lyrical foreplay that winds... Read morePublished on August 21, 2007 by Brett C. Banfe
