The NME called Glasvegas "the best new band in Britain", and we all know the NME deal in hyperbole the way strippers deal in dollar bills, but if Glasvegas isn't the best band in Britain, they definitely are in the top 10. What gives them the spark of brilliance is the mixing of shoegazer-like ethereal haze with a genuine gift of pop sensibilities. To put it simply, the music is dreamy but grounded with melodies so it doesn't get boring or disappear up its own ass in art for arts sake. Never underestimate the power of well written pop hook. It's not necessarily a bad thing to write songs that get stuck in people's heads, is it? - Brad Filicky
