"DAG -Dem are Grooves- Is the kind of band America should be full of. It doesn't matter that it's a group of white kids in a predominately black genre. They nail it. They kick it off with "Sweet Little Lass", which to me is one of the two weaker songs on the album. It has some good lines but for the most part it carries on at the end. The other song that is a little weak is "As". I understand the Sly and Family Stone feel they were shooting for, but Sly was a little to strange for anybody else to pull off successfully. The tracks that really pulled me in were:"Even So" -- This song is big and FULL of music. It makes you move and they added in crowd noise here and there. It is strange production but good."Plow" just an all out funk attackThen there are the two "baby-makin" tunes, "Candy" and "You Can Lick it". Don't miss those.Look if you don't buy this album, you're a fool or you don't like funk and I think that puts you back in the fool catagory."
Addictive, Fun Listening

"A very, very good debut... Some excellent stuff on here, like "Sweet Little Lass" and "Lovely Jane". Rather hard to describe besides saying that it's sort of a fusion of pop, rock, funk, and occasionally oldies-style stuff by a great band who bring back that funk infusion to the twenty-first century. . Just buy it and listen to it without expecting something completely fresh and you'll be pleased."
Funk Rock without the junk

"Seems like nobodies happy with funk anymore unless it's a blatant P-Funk rip off.
Well unfortunately for those people Dag will not cater to the flood of P-funk trend whores and wannabe Funk'o'nauts.
No, No, no, DAG is a bit of the funk, a bit of Rock 'n Roll, a bit of Prince style Pop licks and a bit of that nasty porn you hide from your girl in the back of the closent.
It's not original, but it's good.
There are a couple songs that this record could've done with out, I'm not to hip on the title track "Righteous" or a couple others but the ones that stand out make this CD worth spinnin.
Sweet Little Lass, Lovely Jane, Home, Mama's Eye's and a couple other's
A few silly grooves that make me laugh listenin to em and a few that I skip but I've loved this groove compilation enough to buy it twice having lost it the first time.
It's not the pinnacle of funk for sure, more like the dirty cousin that funk keeps in the closent for bachelor parties and drinking binges.
Thick bass licks, nasty guitar (like junk yard bacon grease nasty), decent keyboards and drums with extra backbone and a couple of ribs. And if you wanna complain about not understanding the lyrics then you shouldn't be listenin to funk there Gomer Pile.
Check it out, it's at least worth a listen."
