Fate sees the Philadelphia-based quintet filtering the gamut of American popular music into its own idiosyncratic brand of blue-eyed, dilated-pupil soul. As ever, Dr. Dog makes magic from an enduring pop palette of intricate harmonies, shape-shifting melodies, and ramshackle audio ingenuity - all presented through the band's slightly skewed and utterly individualistic outlook. Dr. Dog have toured with Wilco, Strokes, Raconteurs, Black Keys, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Magic Numbers, Cold War Kids, and more.

Fate's awesomeness isn't as awesome as Easy Beat and We all Belong. You can hear more definite, direct influences which takes a little bit from some of the songs. The fist song takes some Doowhops out of Joni Mitchell's Big Yellow Taxi. It's not a bad thing though. Just takes you out of the song for a millisecond.
The first five songs are good, but not my favorite. From Ark on, the band is at it's best.
I hope they do more shows. I saw them in LA two years ago and every time they come back, they sell out! I wish more bands were like Dr. Dog. Lo-Fi is the new Hi-Fi! Or something.
Years later this one of my favorite albums!!!

I am still loving the band. I have seen them once in concert, and will be seeing them again in March 2012(they will be playing in Mobile and Birmingham). Dr. Dog is its own genre, so I do recommend checking them out. I think "Fate" is their best work so far, so by all means start out here if you are exploring the band.
