5.0 out of 5 stars Well-explained, with loads of worked examples, 29 Sept. 2000
I bought this book for my maths course because I was having a bit of trouble with complex numbers. It was a very helpful book, because unlike other books which jump straight in "at the deep end", Carr starts by describing the base of complex numbers through simple quadratics, and how complex numbers are applied. Then comes the properties of complex numbers, common operations (such as rationalisation) and worked examples. I found this to be a very helpful book, pointing out concepts in a very simple way, easy to understand, what was once a tough subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't leave here without buying it, 19 Sept. 2000
This review is from: Parachutes (Audio CD)
I'd heard a few from this album, like Shiver and Yellow, but the rest of the album's a lot better. It's not the typical Indie style, it's more powerful. One of those "classics". There's even a bonus track on it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't leave this site till you've bought it!, 25 May 2000
This review is from: Trance Nation 3 (Audio CD)
Sorry, Amazon, but 5 stars isn't enough. How about 10?
I've bought loads of other compilations like this before, all claiming to be the best. But this one takes some beating. "The powerhouse of trance" (quoted) Ferry Corsten chose some of the best "pop" trance for the first CD (like Welcome To The Dance, Toca Me, Hear You Calling and Beautiful), and then some proper stuff that reminds me of being in those clubs for 6 hours on the second CD.
OK, so maybe Sound Of Bamboo doesn't quite fit in, but the rest of the album makes up for it.
Don't leave this website without buying it!

4.0 out of 5 stars .....different?, 10 May 2000
Compared to Oasis' earlier albums (Definately Maybe and What's The Story) it's bad. If you want the original Oasis, don't expect much. But on its own, it's a great album.
The best songs on the album are Where Did It All Go Wrong, Roll It Over and Gas Panic. Roll It Over might as well be "Champagne Supernova part II". Where Did It... is another classic Oasis track, a strong tune.
The only ones I'm not keen on are I Can See A Liar and Who Feels Love. I Can See... isn't bad, but it's let down by a lack of variety. Who Feels Love is just a bit strange to me - too far from the original Oasis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some good "choons", 23 Feb. 2000
This review is from: Kiss Clublife 2000 (Audio CD)
The first CD is more vocal stuff than the second, which is more dance/trance stuff. The mixing is seamless in most of it, but a few slip ups are noticeable. I think they could have had a better selection on the first CD - OK, Get Get Down, Sun Is Shining and Sway are good, but they are surrounded by some disappointing tracks. The second CD is my favourite. The tunes build up from The Awakening, through Bullet In The Gun and Diving Faces to the top of Universal Nation '99, with a chill-out into Another Day. Classic.
