4.0 out of 5 stars Don Tops Up The Pension Plan!, 11 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Heartbeat (1986) (Audio CD)
After two successful seasons of 'Miami Vice', Don Johnson decided to have a stab at being a rock star.
Surrounding himself with creative talents such as Ronnie Wood (Rolling Stones) and Bill Champlin (Chicago), he managed to produce a surprisingly good album.
With most of the tracks being guitar and synthesiser-driven, Johnson delivers a good performance on most of the 10 tracks, particularly on 'Voice On A Hotline' and 'Can't Take Your Memory'.
Most people living in the U.S. will probably only remember Don Johnson's pop career for his 1986 Top Five hit 'Heartbeat', and the cheesy video accompanying it - but this album will pleasantly surprise anyone who listens to it.
I thoroughly enjoyed it, because this kind of music isn't to be taken seriously, anyway! Don't listen to this album expecting to compare Don Johnson with Pavarotti, because you can't!
Give Heartbeat a try, and for those of you who like guitar riffs and 80's synthesiser tracks - you'll dig this!


Resident Evil Zero (GameCube)
Resident Evil Zero (GameCube)

5.0 out of 5 stars From Zero To Hero!, 10 Oct. 2004
Having played and finished every Resident Evil game since it's PS1 inception in 1996, I was waiting with great anticipation to get my hands on Gamecube's Resident Evil Zero. Although many modern games often don't live up to their hype, that argument could never be levelled against Capcom's Resident Evil franchise.
Resident Evil Zero is an excellent action / puzzle game that will have you enthralled for hours, especially if you have been following the franchise's storyline since the beginning. Zero attempts to fill in the missing parts that the first Resident Evil game never got round to.
Now we get to see just how the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team met their grisly demise at the mansion within the Arcklay Mountains of Racoon City. This plotline unfolds to show us how Rebecca Chambers managed to make it to the mansion - with the help of a military prisoner (Billy).
The graphics are very impressive in this game, and the puzzles are as challenging as always. The cut-scenes are informative and the voice-acting is getting better with each Resident Evil game. The introduction of a player-alternating feature is a nice addition, as it makes you more aware of your positioning - and allows you to get the most out of your weapons and ammo.
Whilst Zero may not be as chilling or scary as other Gamecube versions (Resident Evil, or Resident Evil 3: Nemesis), it is definitely an action-packed thriller that you wouldnt want to miss out on. It complements the other Resident Evil titles well, and is one of the most rewarding games you can play on Gamecube - whether you are a fan of the series or not. Highly recommended!
