Never has a commercial catapulted a band's career the way that Mitsubishi ad did for Dirty Vegas. Accompanied by the body-poppings of an eye-catching model, their infectious soundtrack for the car company, "Days Go By," changed them from unknowns into Grammy Award winners. On their second album, One, Dirty Vegas have nothing that comes close to advert-friendly sounds -- which were sparse on their self-titled debut to begin with. There is absolutely nothing that stands out: no experimentation, no overly hook-y choruses, and no contagious riffs. By that same token, there is nothing particularly unpleasant. But after hearing it, you would be hard-pressed to remember anything from it.
