  1. When so much music is so bleak, a little unlikely optimism might be a crucial palliative measure, rather than Pollyanna-ish head-burying, and it’s sanguinity that Dirty Vegas delivers in spades.
  2. What Dirty Vegas has really accomplished with this release is a completely unpretentious piece of work designed to move folks who want nothing more than something fun and catchy to listen to.

    There's little experimentation to interrupt the drive-time friendly tunes. [Nov 2004, p.119]
  4. One fulfills all of the "faceless" criticisms thrown at them in the past, while alienating whatever fan base they had before.

    What the f....!! You know, if I want to listen to pop-rock I'll play U2 or Coldplay, at least that's what those guys are good and What the f....!! You know, if I want to listen to pop-rock I'll play U2 or Coldplay, at least that's what those guys are good and known for. But what in the name of god is this? Where's that groovy house beat; the cool laid-back synthesizers; the awesome bass line? There's nothing here but an attempt to be like everybody: dull, plastic, monotonous, and not a sign of life...not one sign of the Dirty Vegas I once knew. Full Review »
