What could have been a Goo Goo Dolls rehash is instead surprisingly special. Hello Vertigo doesn't go overboard on the angst and, even better, the band brings a fistful of catchy rock to the table. Papa Vegas frontman Joel Ferguson has a great set of honey-husky pipes that brighten whatever song he's singing. On "Something Wrong" Ferguson's voice locks in with minor-chords and mid-tempos--the rare example of substance clobbering a well-worn style. "Bombshell" has one of those catchy choruses lesser bands would trade for their bass player, and "Mesmerized" is an appropriately swirly ballad that'll lodge itself in your head for a week.Definitely recommended. --Jason Josephes

I bought this after seeing a comercial on TV playing a 45 second clip of Bombshell, one of the more catchy tracks, and loved the disk. Every song has a fresh and different sound. It's too bad these guys don't get the radio play they diserve up here in Seattle, yes, we are still playing lots and lots of Pearl Jam, Sound Garden, Alice In Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, ect. Not that those bands are not good (All of them Are on my top 20 bands list), but their sound if old, and burned out, though still one the best around. Back to the CD, each song feeds on the last, and improves any mistakes, making it an enjoyable list. Also, many of the songs keep going through the transition of track numbers. What I mean is that, at the end of Bombshell, there is a whinny guitar, and a slow frum beat for the last ten seconds of the song, and the first three seconds of track three, ending with a loud thund from the drummer, and then the track starts up. So, in this way, many of the tracks are connected. I can't wait for their new album (which they are currently writing some material for), and for some of the tracks to be on single, hopfully with a B-side or two. I also have been tracking down a copy of their very first EP, on an indie label, and I almost have found it.

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!

Papa Vegas is truly one of the most underrated, undiscovered gems in rock. With only one EP and one album to their name, Papa Vegas easily got lost in the musical vacuum of 1999. But they had something more than the 1999 music scene, they were on a different level. While Hello Vertigo was released into a year where most of the music wasn't that good, Hello Vertigo could have easily been the best rock album of 1998, or 1997, almost 2001 even (Tool's Lataralus might take that award). Being released in early 1999 along side Vertical Horizon's Everything You Want and The Verve Pipe's "froggy" s/t album, Hello Vertigo made a little splash and not much more, a loss to music. But remember that Britney Spears came out the same time, so maybe it was just bad timing. Nothing could really come close to Hello Vertigo (the closest was the "froggy" album), and I haven't seen much lately, although this could have been a better time for Hello Vertigo's release. I apologize on that so far I haven't talked about the album's content, I just wanted to explain the time period of this album. Buy this album, I guarantee that you will not be disappointed, it's a masterpiece. The tone of the album is very atmospheric and spacey, something I personally love, and the tone connects with me. If you have a fascination with atmospheric vibe, than this is the best band since Pink Floyd. The opening track "Something Wrong" is worth the album's cost alone; it's one of the best songs in that genre. It draws upon an atmospheric mood that is too good for just one listen, and the guitar tones and vocals sore above a dark musical landscape. Then the song fades into "Bombshell," The album's only main single that really got some attention.Read more ›

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.

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.

This is a CD you can listen to as often as you want-because each listen brings a new layer to each track. Every song is well crafted and Joel Ferguson should be commended for his masterful songwriting. While "Bombshell" is the obvious choice as their first radio single, songs like "Super Telepathy", "Reason without Meaning", and "Sermon Underground" could just as well be enjoyed by those who like that "wall of sound" that Papa Vegas brings to their music. As far as their live show is concerned, missing it would mean missing one of the tightest, most energetic bands I've seen in a long time.
