    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: All Your Favorite Bands (Vinyl)
    Dawes is my favorite of the three D’s (Deer Tick, Delta Spirit, and Dawes). They seem to stay true to their original music, evolving along a path I like. Alternative folk rock, roots rock – whatever it is they are called – the keys to their music are the stories. And the stories continue to be Goldsmith wishing his long lost friends good fortune. I like the twist with the title song – All Your Favorite Bands, may your brother’s El Camino run forever, may your favorite bands stay together.

    Dawes has smoothed some of the edges in the studio. I can’t get Jackson Browne out of my head after hearing Dawes toured with him. I hear his influence on a couple of songs. I did love the pre-Jackson Browne affected North Hills album the best. There’s still plenty of emotion, still some rough edges, and still some good guitar solos on All Your Favorite Bands.

    This is a fine album that fits nicely with their previous work. The stories really do continue where Stories Don’t End left off. Dawes spends more time in the car, and less travelling all over the country in an airplane.

    The vinyl is perfect. Very heavy black vinyl, perfectly centered. The cover is gatefold, pictures of the band inside. Inside a lyrics sheet with a picture of roses on the other side, and a download code card. Thank you download cards.

    Please do not sample impatiently through the songs here and dismiss this because it doesn’t instantly sound like your favorite songs from the previous albums. Also, please ignore the handful of critics knocking this as “more of the same.” We aren’t looking for them to add EDM or garage rock elements to change things up are we? I purchased this sight unseen as I would with any Dawes release. It took me about 3 listens through before it hit me and I noticed the lump in my throat that their music always invokes in me. The harmonies, the soulful organ and the moving lyrics. It’s all here. This is a more stripped down production then “Stories Don’t End.” Both great but different. They stretch things out a bit more here in a mellow way. I was trying to decide which songs to add to my Dawes playlist considering my iPhone storage is maxed out. That’s my one and only struggle with this album!

    This is a very solid album from front to back. I listened to the NPR stream quite a few times before it came out and could already sing along to it by the time it was released. These guys keep putting excellent music out every time. “May all your favorite bands stay together.”
