5.0 out of 5 stars TOP BAND, TOP ALBUM, 28 April 2009
This review is from: Music For The People (Audio CD)
this is an awesome album. great tunes, catchy with some familar sounds thrown in. Oasis, The Clash, The Jam with aires of Kasabian. This is what it is - a great guitar band that's produced a great 2nd album. it's a lot better than the skinny jean culture and music that seems to be churned out these days. being in my 30's perhaps I'm not down with the kids or something! but this reminds me of the brit pop heyday of my younger days. Top music, great album

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the film, 28 April 2009
This review is from: The Secret (Hardcover)
Love this concept of the power of thought - it's full of inspiration and makes you ooze positive energy. my difficulty was reading it this way. the film is great, full of different characters of success, proffessing the reason behind it - using "the secret." just didn't tranlate as well into a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - great follow up, 28 April 2009
This review is from: The Eye of the Moon (Paperback)
Having read The "Book With No Name" only a couple of weeks ago, I got hold of this straight away. Loved it. really good fun and fast paced action, in the supernatural/vampire genre. Well, it's actually more genres than that (yep, it's possible!). Bourbon Kid, what a character. A must read, like the first in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasitc, 28 April 2009
This review is from: The Book With No Name (Paperback)
This is one helluva book. It got hold of me from the first couple of pages - i didn't stop till it was done. read it in one day. it's a great story, full of fun and violence, death and laughter, all set in thsi wonderful world the author created. some real tongue in cheek moments, but it was great - sequel is awesome too.

5.0 out of 5 stars COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN, 28 April 2009
This is a fantastic book. It is an excellent account of a young man's journey through a system riddled with corruption, violence, promiscuity, back stabbing, drug trafficking and boozy excesses - and the most fascinating aspect is, it's set in a modern day prison, from the point of view of a "Screw." Full of energy and anger, the words jump off the page. This is a story from a young man that's got an opinion, that's for sure! A real eye opener and a story that will capticate you from start to finish. Well worth a read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring,, 27 Oct 2006
This review is from: Sam's Town (Audio CD)
I was eagerly anticipating the return of the Killers. Rubish, samey, nothing enjoyable, waste of money. Hot fuss is a classic album that will surely go down in the history books of one of the great debut albums. The best thing about Hot fuss is that when you listen to it, it sounds like english indie music. That was certainly their market audience, as in many interviews Brandon went on how oasis( def the best band ever!) was his inspiration to join a band blah blah blah. I liked it that they managed to bring a retro electro synth sound to indie rock and roll. genius. Sams town has got nothing in it that makes me want to go to a gig, drink beer, start a band and conquor the world. That is what a great guitar album should do, like Definitely Maybe, What ever peole say i am that is what I'm not, Empire. The music is tight, i will give it that, but it is over produced and sounds bland. it's nothing more than lift music. Brandon slates every other band, (which is great angst, and brilliant when a rock star does it and can back it up with good tunes) but he doesn't come up with the goods to prove his rock god stance.

2nd albums are difficult, but this brings a whole new meaning to that concept. Listen first, terrible.
