4.0 out of 5 stars Looks, sounds and feels like the real thing,
I bought the album based on that one song, and I'm glad that I did. It's a really cool mellow rock album. It sounds as if it came right out of 1969. It sounds (and looks, check out those beards) very authentic to the period. I am impressed. I really like it.
Highlights for me include:
"Please Don't Lead Me On", much in the same vein as the single, but with piano too
"I Don't Get By" which has a very country (or even Led Zep III) vibe
"Sounthern Dreaming" which reminds me of the Allmans, CCR and The Band all at once
"Soldier Boy" probably the most rocking song on the album
"Catfish 2 Boogaloo" kind of even reminds me of a simpler version of Cream at times
And, the whole medley. These four mini-songs all meld together seamlessly kind of like a really brief version of Abbey Road side two.
The only song I dislike is the title track "Learn and Burn". Not into the vocal hook at all.
Good album though, and I want to find out more about this band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Canadian band and awesome cd!,

5.0 out of 5 stars More great music,
This review is from: Learn & Burn (Deluxe) (Audio CD)A renascence to the much loved sound of the 60's + 70's. Good grove, touch of psychedelia-a very familiar sound.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased, expect greater things from this group in the future.,
This review is from: Learn & Burn (Deluxe) (Audio CD)I purchaced this CD before seeing them live here in Moncton New Brunswick. I bought the vinyl copy of this at the concert. I like the album and really enjoyed the live show. They closed their live show by doing a cover of "The Weight" by The Band, (Take a load of Annie) in memory of Levon Helm who passed away earlier this year, the room went wild. Buy this album, see them live.
4.0 out of 5 stars Old Bands Live on,
This review is from: Learn & Burn (Deluxe) (Audio CD)This was my first listen to The Sheepdogs and I was blown away at the the old band influences. You can definitely pick out the Led Zepplin, Iron Butterfly etc. inspired tunes yet these gents have made each song uniquely their own. A good album for us oldies that will instantly pick out sounds that remind us of Steppenwolf and the likes
5.0 out of 5 stars Can't turn it off,
This review is from: Learn & Burn (Deluxe) (Audio CD)Literally cannot take this out of the player. It just cycles through all of the songs and they are all great. If you hear one that you like, you will love the whole album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Soul Is Back In Rock,
had some soul rather than sounding like every group who's
music seems to come out the same old cookie cutter can?
Want some good rock like what might have been around in
the late 60's and early '70 (read: heart felt, good rockin')?
Then I have two words: The Sheepdogs.
It suddenly hit me one morning while listening to Learn And
Burn -- this reminds me of The Guess Who ! And I loved
The Guess who!
But make no mistake, the Sheepdogs are at the same time
uniquely themselves. So this is certainly an album for
those of us who grew up in the '70's, but also an album
that fills a vacuum so much needed today ... real musicians,
good musician, and a group of guys who have the soul of rock
Truly, Learn And Burn amongst today music is like a
breath of fresh air with all the comfort that reminds
us of what seemed a more classic time in rock history.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the classics!,
This review is from: Learn & Burn (Deluxe) (Audio CD)Learn & Burn is a classic album that could only be compared to other classics like the Hip - Up To Here; Led Zeppelin II; Fleetwood Mac - Rumours; the Guess Who - American Woman. That probably hasn't phased the guys in the band yet, but it's the reality! Congratulations on their west coast award! Hope there's more to come!
