    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 What the f....!!

    Rather boring, wouldn't want to listen to it more than once. Therefore, I am sure it will be perfect for top 40 radio where it will be shoved down my throat ad infinitum.

    There's little experimentation to interrupt the drive-time friendly tunes. [Nov 2004, p.119]
  2. 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.
  3. One fulfills all of the "faceless" criticisms thrown at them in the past, while alienating whatever fan base they had before.
