"This was an excellent album... when I heard them open for the Verve Pipe I could tell that they had a good sound, but had no idea that the entire album would be this good. There isn't a bad song on the album."
Buy this now!

"After seeing Papa Vegas open for the Verve Pipe (this is an awesome show, btw, see these two bands if they're playing near you), I was so impressed by their performance that I ran out and bought this CD the next day. I was not dissappointed at all. PV has a relatively unique sound, and all of their songs are well-written and well-played. Overall, this is an excellent CD, if you're even pondering buying this, buy it!"
Most overlooked band ever

"This really is an overlooked CD. I remember it vividly from my middle school days, where it seemed like me and my friend were the only people on earth who knew who Papa Vegas was. Reading these reviews provoked me to break out the CD and rekindle the memories of my youth (haha). On a serious note, amidst all of the pop, rap-rock and swing garbage of the late 90's I must say that Papa Vegas did something great. They made a different, engaging CD that was devoid of all lame, late 90's influence. Songs like "Mesmerized," "Long Days (aka: 10,000 years!)" and "Resolve" are forever embedded in my childhood memory banks.Why? Because they weren't mainstream. They weren't average. And they certainly weren't written to catch a "target demographic". To me, Papa Vegas wrote these songs for themselves and hoped that someone would latch on, like myself. I did and I thank them for the gift of making my youth a little more enjoyable. So, as I grow old and withered, I will at least know that I wasn't a victim to the surge of terrible music at the end of the 20th century, and that my friend and myself did have a little sense to recognize the inspirational hymns of Papa Vegas. And if anyone else in Louisiana still owns this CD besides my friend and myself, e-mail me and we will become instant friends for life."
