"The Villains give their fans a little something for the pain"

“A Little Something For The Pain, consisting of 12 new songs that follow the formula the band has had so much success with - songs that are sincere and real. The Villains' hard work, passion and dedication have earned them their rightful place in today's indie market. They deliver music and a live show that their fans deserve, all the time…every time.”

"Atlanta Rock Band The Villains Serve Up “A Little Something For The Pain”"

“If there was any doubt whether American rock purists The Villains were ready to hang with the best the music biz has to offer, their third studio album, A Little Something For The Pain, out August 19, will soon put those doubts to rest.”
Dan Harr - Music News Nashville - Music News Nashville


"The Villains pick up 'Velocity' with their second record"

“'Velocity' is good and worth a listen…actually, worth several, so that you can really soak in all the different sounds entering your ears.”

"Review of 'Just Another Saturday Night' album"

Just a Saturday Night is clearly a re-release, not a reissue. In February 2010, the Villains' debut album was released as a self-titled, 28-minute CD. Then, in late June 2010, the album was re-released by Rock Ridge Music as Just Another Saturday Night. The front cover had the same illustration, and all eight of the songs that appeared on the February 2010 version also appear on this re-release. But one track was added: a pleasing cover of Pure Prairie League's "Amie." So the main things that separate Just Another Saturday Night from the February 2010 version are a new title and the inclusion of "Amie," which is an appropriate song for the Villains to perform given all their '70s soft rock influences (the Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, and the Eagles, among others). It stands to reason that a laid-back, country-influenced adult alternative/roots rock band that draws comparisons to groups like the Goo Goo Dolls, Counting Crows, and the Gin Blossoms, and has a lot of '70s influences would be into Pure Prairie League. That said, someone who already owns the original 28-minute February 2010 release doesn't necessarily need to run out and buy this 32-minute CD just to hear "Amie." But for those who don't already own the February 2010 release, that addition is nothing to complain about. Derivative but consistently enjoyable, Just Another Saturday Night leaves the listener with a favorable impression of the Villains. ~ Alex Henderson, Rovi All Music Guide - allmusicguide.com
