CRITIC REVIEWS

A.V. Club
You can marvel at the strangely layered backdrops of these songs, get lost tracing the oddball sonic twists, and still come out with the chorus planted firmly in your head.

AllMusic

The real pleasure of The Psychedelic Swamp is hearing how Dr. Dog slide from these extremes, sometimes lingering in the netherworlds and sometimes dodging detours but never ever acting like they're in a hurry.

Under The Radar

This collection shows that they were onto something even early on and leaves the listener leaning more toward the excited column.

Drowned in Sound

Despite the addition of the odd synthesised flourish Psychedelic Swamp is about as future facing as the retro computer graphics of the artwork, in this instance it’s actually refreshing to find a band not chasing trends or reaching for progression.

Paste

This new take on The Psychedelic Swamp mainly serves as a means of sharing Dr. Dog’s backstory and really nothing more.

It’s a fun, dramatically more listenable album, if one that could stand to freak out a little now and then.

For once, it would be nice to see Dr. Dog make it out of the muck and face the next stages of their evolution.

I really like this album. It's a step in a different, but good, direction for Dr. Dog. Well done.

Dr Dog tries way too hard and clearly have no idea what subtlety is. Just look at that cover, come on! There are 5 songs with Swamp in the title. WE GET IT.

Enjoyable, weird psychedelic swamp rock at times. At other times, a bit dull.
