5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 25 July 2005
This review is from: Deus Ex (PC CD) (Video Game)
I've often felt that the more hype there is surrounding a game, the bigger a dissapointment the game turns out to be. Not Deus Ex though. Its main selling point is its excellent fusion of stealth, action and role playing. How much of each you use is up to the player. This game veers away from the standard game formula of "go down corridor X to push button Y to open door Z. Instead there are usually a choice of paths to your final destination, and these won't necessarily yield exactly the same results. Deus Ex is a contender for the best game ever due to its originality and unpredictability.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best yet, 28 Jun 2005
This review is from: In Your Honour [2CD] (Audio CD)
The idea of a 2 disc album, each disc covering a different style is something I'd associate more with a prog rock band rather than a band as mainstream as Foo Fighters. The whole thing initially sounded very risky to me but its really paid off. The first disc is FF's heaviest material to date but the songs still manage to maintain that classic Foo Fighters style without sounding a bit stale. Not only that but they've arguably got some of the best songs they've ever written on this disc.
The 2nd disc is where the real risk was. A large portion of their fan base are probably not that open to an acoustic recording, but I'd encourage these people to give the CD a listen. Its some of the best accoustic work I've ever heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!, 19 May 2005
This review is from: World Of Glass (Audio CD)
This album blew me away! Its probably one of the most conceptually complex albums I've ever heard but they pull it off with ease. They manage to make seamless transitions between soft and heavy, further helped by each of the three vocalists contributing a very different style. Fans of Nightwish and Lacuna Coil should love this but to compare Tristania to them would be very narrow minded. This is a band unlike any other goth rock I've ever heard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typical ECW, 2 May 2005
This is definatley a solid offering from ECW. Its not the best around but the matches are all entertaining. The highlights are:
Dean Malenko vs 2 Cold Scorpio
Generation X Gauntlet match
Sabu vs Mikey Whipwreck
Sandman vs Shane Douglas
A bit thin on extras but otherwise very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality old fasioned rock n roll band, 15 April 2005
This review is from: What the Hell (Audio CD)
If the Darkness were labelled as saviours of rock n roll, then I'm gonna strugle to find superlatives to praise this band. All three songs on this single are brilliant and should appeal to anyone who likes any rock or metal between 1970 and 1991. These guys are my tip for the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent text for the undergraduate, 9 Mar 2005
The fact that I've had the author as a lecturer for part of my physical chemistry course is helpful enough, but every topic that an undergraduate may requuire for their physical chemistry course should be found in here, and in my opinion, all are represented in reasonable detail. Occasionally, you may need to consult a more specialist textbook on a particular sub-topic, but even if you were to soley use this book as a guide, you could expect a comfortable pass. Probably the only physical chemistry textbook you should consider.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 14 May 2004
I'll be honest. I've never really been much of a Monster Magnet fan. I've heard some of their stuff here and there but never really got into them. And then this. After reading numerous good reviews about the album I went out and bought it and played it right the way through. This album contains some of the best riffs hard rock has to offer. They may be quite simple but in this case, less seems to be more. The band mannage to be different without being groundbreaking. Popular without being mainstream. This is one of the most solid offerings of hard rock and wouldn't look out of place in any CD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid performance all round, 10 Mar 2004
This review is from: WWE - Summerslam 2003 [DVD] (DVD)
This PPV isn't bad and is certainly worth buying if you're a fan. The elimination chamber main event is good but still a bit disapointing. It ends far too quickly and doesn't really live up to the standard of the previous one. Don't let this deter you though, it is still a highly entertaining match. In my view, the best match of the card is Bishoff - Shane Mcmahon which turns into a no DQ half way through. I won't spoil the twist if you don't already know it but it was definately the most entertaining match as are all of Shane's matches. The other matches on the card hold their weight and deliver everything you would expect from a PPV.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read for any Metallica fan., 9 Feb 2004
This was a book written by a Metallica fan for the Metallica fans. No matter how much you think you know about the band, there's bound to be something in here you'll learn about them. It starts off with a bit of history - from when they formed up until their first album but the main body of the book, and its real strength is the in depth analyses of each song. Although it is generally speculation about the meaninings or influences of a song, it still offers plenty of insight into the band's thoughts and their influences. After reading this, you reaaly can't help but respect the band in every way. As it you already didn't respect them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now this is a live performance!, 14 Dec 2003
Combining a full orchestra with a heavy metal couldn't possibly work could it? Although the most logical answer is probably yes, in this case that is wrong. This isn't just a success, its one of the greatest live performances I've ever heard. Some songs sound like they were written with the orchestra in mind and all due credit must go to Michael Kamen who wrote out all the orchestration. People who like both heavy metal and classical music will almost certainly love this although fans of only one of these genres should still give it a go. A concert which could have potentialy been a musical train wreck, actually shows Metallica at their greatest.
