Today We're Believers is an album by Royal Canoe, released in 2013. [5] [6]


Critical reception

PopMatters wrote that "while [the album's] scattershot approach might be appealing on the surface, at 12 songs -- four of them eclipsing the five-minute mark -- the record does feel a bit overlong." [7] Now called the album "a smorgasbord of sound that’s all bongos, keyboards and languorous breakdowns that creep into repetitive territory." [4]
