  1. Positive: 6 out of 13
  2. Negative: 1 out of 13
  1. Through smart songcraft, a powerful command of pop vocabulary, and skillful track sequencing, Dios Malos deliver an album that expands and grows more complicated with every listen.
  2. 82
    Completely non-offensive summertime pop. [#17, p.94]
  3. Dios (Malos) emphasize their way with hooks and downplay the hazy sonics of Dios for an album of sunny, instead of smoggy, Californian pop.
  4. dios (malos) is missing something--namely, guitarist Kevin Morales. [Dec 2005, p.212]
  5. Where Dios felt structured, (relatively) focused, and clever, dios (malos) just is let to drift in a mess of under-developed songs, odes to drug abuse, and unfocused guitar strumming.
  6. 60
    In taming their eccentricity, Dios (Malos) have also lost some of their dreamy romanticism along the way. [Mar 2006, p.98]
  7. There's nothing inherently wrong about writing songs about enjoying booze and drugs, but this isn't something I'd put on under the influence of either. Just imagine what it sounds like sober.
