    The 18 eclectic tracks hang together because of a gleeful joie de vivre, and are the best songs of the band’s career.

    Fucked Up have created a masterpiece that pushes boundaries, takes risks and delivers huge rewards.

    Dose Your Dreams feels like a fresh breath for the band. With all the heavy meta-survey of their most recent releases spit out, it sounds like the band is floating upwards, and perhaps just as importantly, having a lot of fun.

    A sprawling, ambitious 18-track behemoth, its size and constant stylistic shifts belies its cohesiveness. [Nov 2018, p.106]

    It’s powerfully confronting, unashamedly angry, unrelenting and it’s long. Yet throughout, the band’s mastery guides the album. The ebb and flow, often squeezed into the running time of a single track, is as beautiful as it is disarming.

    There's variety like never before: bludgeoning tech-punk, disco beats and Screamadelica-era Primal Scream eruptions. That it exists is exhausting; that it works is extraordinary. [Nov 2018, p.29]
  7. Oct 1, 2018
    The wide variation in music and the uneven results (all of it, perhaps, evidence of the record’s conceptual ambitions and smarts) prevent Dose Your Dreams from being a uniformly pleasurable record. But, man, is it full of ideas and aesthetic vitality.

    I'm really amazed by this one, the majority of the tracks flow really well, plus there are really passionate vocal performances and blastingI'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 Expand
