As the album title would suggest, Dr. Dog has had a few fingers wagged in their direction in the past. But all is forgiven with admitting to the problem, (it is, after all, the first step to recovery). "I do believe/that there's no more tricks up my sleeve" cries Scott McMicken (on the very first track!). Funny, coming from a band that consistently has used the same trick over and over, somehow coaxing tons of fans onto the bandwagon over the past ten years, often to the chargin of "critics."
