No use sugarcoating it, this record isn't good. Furthermore, the free download version on their website is even worse. What's up with the useless splash page? And the background music you can't turn off? Gratuitous animation you can't skip? And then to download one track at a time? Oh, and don't try navigating to another page while it's working, it'll cancel out leaving you to begin the whole damn exercise all over again. What I'm saying is, don't bother. Sometimes free isn't really free.
As for what you're "missing", Dogday plays post-punkish indierock hampered by a weak vocalist and a lack of melody. They aim for detached cool and end up boring. The shit mastering job doesn't help, it's just as flat and lifeless as the songs. Avoid.

It's a shame you have to wade through a river of Flash nonsense to get it. And that you can't leave the page (or turn off the background music) while downloading. But free is free, right?

As you can see, some of these tracks are old and previously released (TSOOL for instance), but most are new and exclusive to this release. The exact order is still TBD and a few more tracks are due for submission, but I'll definitely be carrying it in the webstore when it's released on November 15.
