I used to like Tankard quite a bit, but their last few albums have failed to grab my interest, let alone impress. This is unfortunately also true with Pavlov's Dawgs. This is a way-too-long 55 minutes of the band just chugging away and the singer sounding bored out of its mind and, try as I might over the course of several listens, I found myself bored as well. There's the occasional good riff and some passages here and there show promise, but overall I find it just falls flat. A lot of the lyrics are quite actual and likely will please some and anger some others, the political spectrum being so polarized these days. Of course, you'll find the usual humour and beer-related stuff. Bottom line, Tankard seem to have run out of steam a while back and are just going through the motions, if that.
