Customer Reviews

The sound quality is poor.
Ted Collins
Just funky and fun enough to enjoy....I like its groove and it plays well too...They have a cool style and don't knock it till you've tried it a couple of times....
James D. Luce
It is fun and funky and written and performed very well.

This CD is very amateurish. CD sounds like a bad 80's band. The lyrics are childish and the guitar playing sounds like someone learning how to play. I am pretty sure that this band lost their recording contract after they released this album.

Seems like every song on this CD is trapped in the past, and almost every song sounds like a Prince reject. Dag's attempt at altering their musical pallet is laughable - the rocky and funky beats are as out of place as a goth kid in Disney Land.
Nothing on this cheese packed excuse for a CD can redeem Dag. The only thing it brings into light is their total lack of any vocal and guitar talent, and not to mention song writing ability. If this CD got any cheesier, you'd find in between the Havarti and Chedder in your local Deli. SMELLY.

I'm a professional jazz guitarist. I love this cd. I wouldn't call DAG funk, although they're definitely funk influenced. I understand why funk purists wouldn't like it...I'd say Dag was more influenced by disco than James Brown or George Clinton. They basically sound a lot like some Prince. The lyrics on the album don't make sense; in a lot of ways this music might be too campy for some people's taste, so unless you have a very open mind stay away. To criticize Dag for being white is racist, ignorant and stupid. First of all, from what I can tell from a picture of the band there are black members as well as white. Secondly, I really don't think they're trying to prove anything about race. Thirdly, though I love alot of black musicians, as an experienced musician and someone who owns over 2000 records and is familiar with about 1000 others, I know very well at this point that being black is hardly a requirement for making good music, regardless of the style. However, if I thought that the goal of these musicians was to sound black, in any way, I would find it offensive. In defensive the poor guitarist, I think he's GREAT! He's got wonderful sound and he really swings...the keyboard sounds amazing too.
I love this prince and I like this album better than any of my prince cds, certainly not because it's more original, but because it's got AWESOME energy and dynamics, it's VERY elaborate, the arrangements are very tight and the whole band is in the pocket all the way through. This band is undeniably good, despite what some musical bigots think.

This CD comes as a bit of a shock that it was ever released. "Apartment" turns out to be the biggest musical embarrassment of DAG's short career - their record contract was cancelled after this release.
I love funk and hip-hop music. But, DAG made a serious mis-step on this one. DAG and their producers made some grave miscalculations here. Most of the songs are a jumbled mess. The first single release is a thwarting hodgepodge. DAG's attempts at making some funk comes off sounding like 80's New Wave. Oh! Did I mention almost every song features the same guitar tempo? I think DAG got a little carried away. "Our Love would be Much Better" and "Girl Got It Good" lack originality and are painfully weighed down by pointless lyrics.
The brunt of the uptempo tracks finds DAG sounding very uninspired and lackluster. At certain points, DAG exudes some screetching guitar noises that you would typically find on a Prince album. Fans should definately pass on this one. This is a bitter disappointment. How embarrassing!

...very disappointed in the quality of the music. The guitar playing is feeble and the vocals were grating. The overall CD comes off as one of those sleazy hotel lounge acts...Buyer beware!

I was very disappointed in this album. It's very 80s with drum machines, bad guitar and synthesizers. The sound quality is poor. Definately not worth the money.

I, like many GenXer's, love FUNK music. This album is poorly made - no good time party songs nor soul searching ballards.
On "Apartment 635", DAG can't figure out if they are Glam, FUNK or Alternative. Nothing they seem to do on the CD seems fresh. It most definitely won't win them any new fans on any front.
There is a lot NOT to like on this CD.
It kicks off with the title track "Our Love Would Be Much Better (If I Gave a Damn About You)" which sounds like a country music revenge reject. Aside from the typical DAG guitar intro, It's lyrically filled with almost every bad cliché that's out there. DAG the "lyrical genius" strikes again. NOT! In "Girl Had It Good" and "Worldspinning", DAG changes gears to try and get the younger audiences. As the old cliché states, "Its all been done before" and DAG has reached into an uninspiring dose of glam rock.
Now outside of the songs, I also have a real problem with the whole "sound" of the CD. The production is horrible! I've heard indie bands with better sound quality than this. It sounds like it was done in someone's garage. C'mon guys, are you that broke you couldn't have gotten a decent producer and guitar player?
This album definitely strikes out: 1) Lack of originality of their songs, 2) No good soulful ballads, and 3) Horrible production values. It definitely makes my list of "most disappointing releases.
