    I'm really amazed by this one, the majority of the tracks flow really well, plus there are really passionate vocal performances and blasting ecletic instrumentals. One of the best albums I've heard this year so far

    Lyrically and conceptually they are scattered, but instrumentally and vocally, there is an open-mindedness that rends you. Ironically, in an album that talks about dying, there is a never say die attitude that latches on and never lets go.

    Dose attempts to go everywhere and do everything. Opener “None of Your Business Man” is classic Abraham ascendancy (and the perfect anthem to quit your job to). “Torch to Light” introduces the double LP’s first moment of psychedelia, a new-ish venture for the band that’s sprinkled throughout. Mascis’s contribution on “Came Down Wrong” is, unsurprisingly, fuzzy, lackadaisical indie rock. “Dose Your Dreams” is disco. “Two I’s Closed” is a Beatles ballad. “The One I Want Will Come for Me” recalls shoegaze-y Cure.

    Vocal contributions from a slew of guests keep things unpredictable on a set which often feels like a multi-genre playlist. ... Time spent getting your head around this craziness is time well spent. [6 Oct 2018, p.55]
