The word here is polish. This hot, jumping septet exudes the kind of slick interpretation that only comes from playing a lot of gigs and spending most of their waking hours on the road. The Love Dogs have their hands (or paws) firmly on the coattails of the current neo-swing craz Lead singer E. Duato "Ed" Scheer, who also produced this album (their secnd), steers his pack through 14 high-energy numbers. Most of the dynamic solos are courtesy of the ever-so-tight horn section. Myanna, tenor sax, pretty much steals the show with her fiery solo work. Myanna and keyboardist Alizon Lissance, by the way, were members of the popular East Coast band Girls Night Out. The quality of the material is about even, although "Too Old to Die Young" does get the prize for a clever title. This will be nonstop, breathless fun for those who don't tire easily. --Lars Gandil

"The Love Dogs, for my money, have put down some of the best swing tracks on disc I've heard.. These guys SWING.. Forget Setzer and the Daddies. This one's a winner."
Something everyone needs to have...

"The Love Dogs are absolutely incredible. Their music is just getting better with time. The more you listen, the more you have to play it. If the Dogs are ever in your part of the country... they are a must see!!! Very fun to see live, lots of energy and interaction with the crowd!"
Bringin' the Bar Home
(4 out of 5 stars)
"I admit it was a risk to buy this CD. There's no telling how the two dynamite live sets at Boston's famous Johnny Dee's this past Halloween would translate to the home CD player. Have no fear! This studio recording brings the live ambience of a rockin', sultry, steamy, and just plain fun band to those of us "too old to die young" for a Saturday nite groove or a Monday morning work out. Yes, the Love Dogs swing - but with a bit more flavor (and a lot less guitar) than Brian Setzer, and a lot more scat and finger-snapping than the Cherry-Poppin' Daddies. There's plenty of mood, clever lyrics, and enough sax attack to make you smile."
