4.0 out of 5 stars This Man Understands Love!, 1 July 2009
This review is from: Hombre Lobo (Audio CD)
I have been an Eels fan for many several years now and have enjoyed all their albums for their own individual qualities. It's refreshing that the albums are so different but the thing about the Eels is that the quality is always great. In Hombre Lobo E (Mark Oliver Everett) has produced a dozen heartfelt songs of love, all beautifully written, all different in mood and perspective. There is some beautiful guitar work from Kool G Murder and some rather nice howling from Mr E.
Another welcome additional to the internal soundtrack of my life, and quite probably yours too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A compulsive informative read, 29 Aug. 2001
This review is from: Surviving Galeras (Hardcover)
I devoured this book over 2 days. Stanley Williams and his co-authour have written both a clear and sensitive account of the explossion on Galeras and an excellent introduction to vulcanology. He is careful in trying to place the event in the context of the lives that were lost and affected by the relativly small yet so destructive erruption in 1993. The historical information given on previous explossions from numerous other volcanos is extremely interesting especially their global effects on weather and even social history.
There is also a clear explanation of the formation of volcanos that I can now describe to my children!
My only critisim might be that his desire to learn more about the families of those killed could appear a little intrussive.
In conclussion a highly interesting book that gives a picture of an event from many different perspectives
