Strange faces, great album
on 12 February 2004
It's so strange to come across Dirty Vegas. So few people know who they are, or even that they have an album.
But, well, in a way it's nice, as they don't know what they are missing. And that is a long list!!
Soulful love songs (days go by), quirky beats (I should know), compassionate lyrics (throwing shapes)....I could go on!
Dirty Vegas have a real longevity about their music. They have the feeling of Faithless, or, closer to home, they may grow to rival Royksopp if they are very lucky.
I ma not sure how new their kind of music is. This has been done before, but I see it as if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Have a crap day at work, get stuck in traffic, spill coffee on your trousers. Then go home, get this album on, forget what you were thinking about and enjoy. It's like musical aromatherapy!
If you haven't got Melody Am by Royksopp, go buy that. If you have that but have now listened to it so many times your friends are worried about you, buy Dirty Vegas.
They're different, but just as good.
