Dios embraces everything that is right about music, and for that, I am ever so grateful to these sweet, young, rocking dudes. I don't know how I found this album, most likely through divine intervention, but it's now firmly rooted in my heart, and has been flowing gracefully through my ears for months. From the relentless melancholia of the opening track Nobody's Perfect to the raining, tear-stained coda All My Life, this recording is overflowing with ensorcelling melodies, whimsical lyrics, youthful buoyancy, and, as the third song spells out, a ponderous feeling of uncertainty that we can all empathize with.

A number of reviewers have made comparisons to Radiohead, Wilco and Grandaddy, but the only influences that I see manifested readily in Dios are those of the great, sunny Beach Boys (the flourishing refrain of You Still Believe In Me from Pet Sounds is incorporated into Fifty Cents) a dash of Elliot Smith (the beginning of Just Another Girl sounds like a bonus track from Either/Or) and Neil Young (they play a faithful, endearing cover of Birds and deftly utilize Old Man era licks on You Got Me All Wrong). Aside from the hefty, though not overbearing derivation from the aforementioned musicians, Dios also musters up a healthy number of entirely original gems that possess and express the raw emotion of growing up at its most poignant. The gliding, jaunty Starting Five, the wistful, dolorous All Said and Done and the beautiful, candid ballad Meeting People are all authentic and absolutely outstanding songs. With Dios' debut album, they creatively run the gamut of emotions, and do so with the grace and dexterity of a band who has been playing together for forty years. They have something very special, and I highly recommend that you hear it for yourself.

One of the singles of this album "Starting five" was at its best, refreshing, adoringly romantic, and easily enjoyable, without coming across cheap. For those people who are tired of music going on right now like Rapture or The Thrills, you can find yourslef putting down a deep breathe on this one, knowing you're not crazy for not liking the other dreary, high pitched voice new music.
You get the feeling that Dios lets their instruments and melodies take off when they play, they also add a more than little amount of psychedelic sound scapes, which is all the more entrancing when its backed up by somber verses and the balanced intensities of the guitar in their songs.
They're not in the class of Flaming Lips or Wilco, but its a specialty to still be in their adolescent stage, because there's no pressure coming from their own "style"---you can tell they enjoy themselves.
Call this review overrating but there's no doubt this band is charmed. They may not seem very adult, but it feels nice when one remembers their tunes before bed. There's not a lot of sincere debuts these days.

this is the kind of music that a trendy scene kid, a soccer mom, or even a music critic with very particular musical tastes could all enjoy. dios is a great band; and as wonderful as they are live, their cd will not disapoint those who just came home from the beulah concert and were equally impressed by dios and decided to purchase their cd. this is a cd that you will be proud to have in your cd collection not because NME called dios one of the top ten best new bands (which they in fact did), but because you just cant get enough of it yourself.
don't pass this cd up!

This is the new album from Startime so we all expect a lot: the world. Dios is actually spelt "dios." And means God. The band is from Hawthorne, not too far from where I am right now, and is the home of The Beach Boys. They are into Brian Wilson, The Beatles, and Neil Young. They idolize Smile and Pet Sounds. The are five Mexicans dudes who do what they want. They have played with Grandaddy and Saves The Day. They seem like they are playing in a similar vein. It's mellow rock that is melodic and full of Americana sounds. Apparently their father is a well-known mariachi singer. Well-known if you hang out Ritmo Latino. This is a happening record. It's really dreamy.

i just saw the band last night at the troubador where they headlined. I've seen this band many times, all the way back to an early show at mr.T's bowl and also at the troubador last summer, where they were the first band and came on around 8pm. They've come a long way from that. The band is tighter, JP Caballero makes the bass his bitch and their new drummer is extremely talented. Joel's vocals also seem stronger. Expect big things from this band! This album, btw is great. Lots of influence from the beatles, beach boys, neil young (there's even a cover song) and sound similar to the beachwood sparks and J Lo (hahah). This is a must buy for any music fan - order it now, or die!
