4.5 superbcjbizzlebizzle | May 8th 19

A record that just gets better and better with each and every listen. At first 'Tricks', 'Old Man', the title track and 'Boys Will Be Boys' impress but then the deeper cuts come out and in the end Beware of the Dogs is just incredibly well rounded and powerful. When it comes down to it, great singer/songwriters spill their soul onto their record and this is no exception as everything is deeply personal and you get a feeling for who Donnelly is. Stella's vocals are captivating and demand your attention at every turn and her lyrics are excellent. Lyrics can be expendable in many cases but here they are one of the best aspects of the entire listen. Stella is blunt and very personal showcasing some of the toxic aspects of our culture without ever being preachy or pretentious. 'Boys Will Be Boys' following up 'Tricks' is one of the best 8 minute stretches of music of recent memory and the contrast and commonalities between the two tracks shows Stella really knows how to piece an album together. 'Tricks' comes off as a catchy upbeat masterclass in songwriting and then things slowdown in 'Boys Will Be Boys', a tale that crushes your soul. A frontrunner in the relatively uneventful catalog of 2019.

4.0 excellentdedex | March 12th 19

A socially-conscious girl singing over some jangle/twee pop, but with an almost punk attitude (basically she does not give the single fuck). Very interested in what she'll do in the future, she already knows how to write boppity bops. However, the non-bops tracks have the unfortunate tendency to drag really quickly. 3.8
