"Steve Earle was on to something when he signed the V-Roys. Too bad they are no more, although one of their creative forces, Scott Miller, released an excellent solo album (Thus Always to Tyrants) and has another on the way, I understand. The V-Roys delivered consistent, intelligent, and listenable twang with 'tude. No complicated arrangements, no array of instrumentation; this was a guitars, bass, percussion, and vocals band, probably best heard in a smoke-filled bar. The CD is all about winning and losing, but never mutually satisfying, relationships. The best songs are No Regrets ("in the time it takes to crush this cigarette/I have no regrets about leaving you" -- not!), Pounding Heart (the dangerous temptation of commitment), What She's Found ("now I've got her so don't even bother to try and get back somehow"), and Lie I Believe (self-deception as art form). Cold Beer Hello is where you raucously wind up at the end of the affair and the CD, the beer more faithful than you or she have been. Only loser cut is Wind Down. Nothing timeless here, but worth having for its energy and witty writing."
This is easily the best cd of 1996

"Do yourself or a loved one a favor and buy this album. In fact buy two, this album will surely become either worn out or stolen in no time. In our mad rush to label everything we have done ourselves a disservice and the v-roys are an example. Rock fans, these boys rock as loud as nirvana or the replacements. Country fans, these boys have got all the twang that the mainstream country acts lack. This album is tightly written from beginning to end. NO FILLER SONGS. I know we are all probably so jaded that we cannot concieve of such an album actually being written in an era in which an album is considered a solid buy if two or three songs therein are of quality. A full dozen songs and any one of which is vastly superior to the shoddy product which seems to flow like the Tennessee river out of Nashville."
The V-Roys kick ASS!!!!!!

"The V-roys are soo awesome! I heard of them a couple years back from my sister, and i bought this first CD. I loved it and i always go to there little gigs when they come to my town. There from Knoxville, TN and they kick ass! I would definately recommend getting there other Cd as well. Me and my sister tried to think of a way to describe there music, but you cant. So we came up with a name for there kind of music, we call it ROCK-A-VILLY! well, because its gotta a little country twang and a lotta rock!........oh yeah Joey Todd if your reading this my sister said HI!"
