5.0 out of 5 stars YES!, 30 Aug 2010
This review is from: In Rainbows (Audio CD)
YES! a great album. The whole band seems to have gelled back into what they should be. There is everything that Radiohead have done here, Glitches, Drum loops, effects, falsetto, orchestra, Thrashing guitar, Banging bass, expert drums, beautiful songs, rocky songs, dancy songs, terrifying songs, FANTASTIC musician ship (just because Ed is not shredding the guitar on every track does not mean he is not involved, he is a magician at sampling and effects). All in all In Rainbows is definitely the true heir to Ok Computer. Take into consideration the music they were making before OK Computer, rocky, grungey tunes. And consider where they were going with Ok Computer, effects, progressive guitar and lyrics of estrangement from society. Consider where they went after Ok Computer. Consider the breakaway from mainstream with the masterpeices of thier genre Kid A and Amnesiac. Consider one of thier 'weaker' albums Hail to the thief and Pablo Honey. THEN consider the full transfer from Pablo to In Rainbows. THEN you will see how good an album it is and THEN you will rank it in your top three.

To anyone new to Radiohead this is the order I suggest you buy.

OK Computer
In Rainbows
Kid A
The Bends
Amnesiac
Hail to the Thief
Pablo Honey

5.0 out of 5 stars bloody brilliant, 6 Jun 2009
the imagery, the poetry and the physicality amounts to a beautifully raw insight into the mind of Steven Berkoff.

Absolutely loved it!

East is probably the best play i have ever read and i would love to see it portrayed on the stage


The American Pilot
The American Pilot
by David Greig
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.28

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Play, 17 Mar 2009
This review is from: The American Pilot (Paperback)
another terrific offering from one of Britains top Dramatists. The American Pilot is about the way America deals with the rest of the world and how the rest of the world deals with America. Beautifully crafted, as all Greig's plays are, and well plotted makes this almost 'Brechtian' play great.


Pyrenees

4.0 out of 5 stars really really good, 12 Mar 2009
This review is from: Pyrenees (Paperback)
a brilliant play, well crafted and beautifully scripted. The play deals with the knowledge of self, about how sure people are about themselves and mainly about the search for ones self in our universe.

5.0 out of 5 stars a truly brilliant peice of theatre, 10 Mar 2009
Yellow moon is not only excellent on stage but is brilliant to read. Staged completely in the Round with only four chairs and four actors who rarely, if ever, leave the stage, unless to grab a small item of costume.
The play strips theatre back down to the very basics, an empty stage, great actors and a fantastic script by an amazing dramatist, David Greig. Lead by narrative by the other actors who are not in the scene. The narrative is at times poetic and at times strange, employing internal monologues, causing the audience to really pay attention. In all a fantastically riveting peice of theatre for young and old

4.0 out of 5 stars Wait, 27 Nov 2008
I loved Waiting for Godot. A classic of Dialogue Theatre. People need to realise that even though it seems as if nothing is happening, it really is. They are waiting for something, and everyone knows what happens when you wait for so long, when it comes it will be a disapointment. Whether they are Waiting for God. In the days after WW11 when people started to really question whether there was a God and if there was, why didnt he stop the war? A brilliant example of the Absurdist theatre that was starting to rise or the Anti Theatre or the Search for ones Self, the search for purpose. A Fantastic play

5.0 out of 5 stars A Comedy Of Menace, 8 Nov 2008
my love of Harold Pinter began at about 15, I played Stannley webber in an Acting peice, i thought it was weird, yet somehow fantastic. i picked this up at the local library, so i caould read the Birthday Party again, i read all teh others and was blown away. i love how he is able to turn the most ordinary of situations into these amazing peices of art. Pinter is GOD
