5.0 out of 5 stars Is all as it seems in these reviews?, 10 Jan. 2016
I really enjoyed this book, which I received for Xmas. I am writing this review because of all the comments made by people who are showing as having not purchased the book. Before I even comment on the book, I'll comment on those fake reviews. Please note my review does have some spoilers.

First what is the agenda of the fake reviews? Possibilities:

1. Fans are genuinely upset that guys they perceive to have defended Conrad Murray have written a tell all.
2. Fans are being manipulated by people who do not come off well in this book - Like Raymone Bain.
3. Fake reviews are being posted by people exposed in the book.

Let me start by countering some of the points made over and over:

1. The bodyguards don't claim to have been with MJ or Mr Jackson as they formally refer to him, at the time of death. They make it clear that Michael moved to LA and they were told to stay and take care of his belongings in storage in Vegas. Michael Amir who became one of MJs handlers never returned calls from the guards to come as MJ wanted. MJ even rang them and asked them to return because he wanted them to create a wall around him and cut him off from the 'vultures'. The Amazon blurb might say they were there at the time of death, but they didn't write the blurb, it's just badly phrased.
2. They did introduce Conrad Murray to MJ but they say only to deal with the children's flu. They do show their surprise in the involvement in his death. I believe there is a repressed sense of guilt for introducing him to MJ. But how could they have known MJ would demand propofol?
3. They didn't sign a NDA with anyone.

The book is a great read and dishes the dirt on MJs business managers in a way that really clarifies the madness. It makes you feel sorry for the way Jackson couldn't assert himself anymore and would sign an agreement to let anyone manage him, letting them fight over it whilst he sat there quietly (clever in a way). It tells you all about the backstabbing and Michael's hands off approach to management, letting operations be run by anyone and refusing to run with any strategy for his career, because all he wanted was to spend time with his kids. A great read. This book is backed by Joseph Vogel which should say a lot, Vogel is a great writer. Finally I can't believe the negativity this receives when it clears up everything that happened whilst books by the Cascio's are heaped with praise.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Marred Masterpiece., 10 Nov. 2012
Luv XXX opens with typical Aerosmith flare, whispers, echos, monstrous voices, before settling into a no-frills Devils got a brand new disguise-track-alike Aerolight sound. I don't really like the track (it's obvious right?) 2/5

Oh yeah is an amazing stab at cribbing the Rolling Stones, you've got to have cahones to do a track like this - Tyler has them in abounds. It's not compelling though... 3/5

Beautiful - Compelling just walked in, stage left. Other reviewers described this as disjointed. What on Earth were they listening to? This is the only early track with DRAMA, and it starts from the opening riff. Tyler enters with a quasi-rap, but we know he's capable of that. Have you heard Walk This Way? Of course you have. Tyler screams and almost cries vocally. I'm listening to a breakdown. It's a hot mess! Imagine the pained stabs of Janie's got a Gun. 4/5. It's not 100% up to that standard, but the chunky unbalanced riff is catchy. CATCHY. I'd give that riff 5/5.

Tell me - drama exits again and is replaced with a capable ballad, then half way though the drama comes back and reminds me a little of Don't Look Back in Anger by Oasis. Crooning. It's not compelling and lacks as do tracks 1 & 2. It's not that the songs aren't good, it's that they're not dragging me across the floor demanding themselves. Which we all know good Aero does to us. 3/5

Out Go the Lights? Out went the inspiration. Turgid mid paced riffing and boring lyrics. What am I listening to? It's full of melody stabs from old material slightly fiddled. 1/5.

Legendary Child reminds me of back in the saddle? With its slightly off pace riffing it has pretty much every Aerosmith musical tekkers chucked in - backwards guitar, crunching bass, but it's catchy like Beautiful. Like Beautiful - it is beautiful. It has measured DRAMA. Again what's to be angry about in your 60's? At least Tyler's trying vocally. 4/5.

What Could have Been Love - FINALLY. FINALLY some compulsive drama and chops enter. Imagine a really strong ballad. Stop imagining it, pop this track on. Because it's the best song on here. Aren't albums normally getting weaker by the middle? This album's getting stronger? WTF??? 5/5.

Street Jesus - Spoke too soon. I can't listen to this. It's a more sadistic continuing version of all the boring parts of all the previous tracks. 1/5.

Can't Stop Lovin' You - Not the MJ cover we were all perhaps suspecting, and that's a disappointment as what we get instead is middling and I couldn't listen to the whole song. It's not terrible, I guess. Carrie carries the song, ironically. 3/5.

Lover Alot - I'm not really sure what's going on here. But it's hot. It's original, dark, upbeat, and punky at the same time, bass is heavy here. Potential single? It's a stand out of a potential new 'smith style. Download this track IMO. 4/5.

We All Fall Down - I did wonder if Tyler would try something he could perform on Idol. Here he goes for it. It's not What Could Have Been Love, but it is flawless. 5/5.

Freedom Fighter - Another soundalike, this time I'm hearing Motorhead. It's not what you're here for though? 3/5.

Closer, DRAMA HAS RETURNED. Finally. After 2 flawless ballads comes the sort of intro I'd forgotten Aero could do. 4/5.

Something sounds like a cross between a 007 song and classic rock and roll. Not sure what's going on vocally here, but at least it's not ripping off early work, well done to the band for trying something new. It doesn't all work, but they should carry on trying more of this. 3/5.

Another Last Goodbye - What a shame, another ballad, but it's not like the other two which were faultless. It's reachy, preachy, whiny and overwrought. And Tyler's voice sounds horrible in places here. Suddenly I've realised. They're throwing everything they've got at this, good, excellent, bad. Every track is the last. They're taking all the works in progress giving them a release and letting go. And some of it is horrible, and some of it is amazing. 1/5

Up on The Mountain - I don't know what to say? 1/5.

Oasis In the Night - can we forget this track is on here? And the last one. Why did they bother? Guys you could have just dumped this on a B side somewhere. This sounds like really bad Johnny Cash 1/5.

Sunny Side Of Love - This is the track we should exited on ages ago. It's catchy but such a chore to get to after the last two tracks. Beautiful and upbeat. You'll be so drained by the last two though. So, so drained. Ahh the harmonies lift me up. But is it enough to make me forget those last two. Probably not. 3/5.

When it came to think of a final score, I took the numbers and added them together, divided by 18 and rounded up. There was potential here, and unnecessary weak tracks brought it down, IMO.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great choice of tracks but a lot of filler here., 13 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Northern soul is an amazing quazi-genre (a genre that never really existed, but tracks grouped together by their fervent consumption by mass audiences in the North of England). Stylistically it's all a bit like Motown, but independent. There's some great tracks here - and some really dodgy ones. There's no point in going over track by track because everyone's taste is different and there is a lot of variety here. But I must say I doubt you will like 1/2 of what is on here, as a lot of it is not very well written or recorded. Fantastic for the price, however.

It's just an amazing design, despite the London 50 thing on the back. I don't care, it's so quirky I love it, the colours are brilliant.

Miss you loads Mike! Every day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Of two minds about this, 13 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well its a good design but annoyingly the stitching came undone on the t shirt along the bottom and I rarely wear tees so its outside of the period for return or exchange.

I love the design but the quality of the T shirt is undesirable.

4.0 out of 5 stars supplemental review, 13 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This isn't going to be a huge review as such, more a supplement to what others have commented on.

I found Sonic the Fighters to be an amusing diversion. What actually shocked me was not Sonic but my first exposure to Vectorman which was on the PS2 disk as an extra. I had no idea what I had been missing. It was literally stunning in terms of interesting game play graphics and story. Quite compelling. I recommend purchasing this to get your hands on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Infamous, BUTCHER, ANGEL OF DEATH., 2 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Reign In Blood (Audio CD)
6 zillion riffs in a 4 minute time frame, 2 billion different time signatures.

Probably the most unrepentantly strong lyrics in Thrash.

It's probably impossible to clarify in words why this is so strong but it's something to do with the immense sense of catharsis the listener gains with it turned up to 11, it has the precision of Classical music, a disenfranchised rage later rock acts could only dream of tapping into and a sense of genuine sado-masochistic terror and urgency.

And that's just the first track ;)

3.0 out of 5 stars Mylo Xy-low-NOOOOOOOOOO?, 2 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Mylo Xyloto (Audio CD)
Been listening to this for a while, here's a track by track review:

Mylo Xyloto - Godspeed you black emperor! meets blue states. Not my thing 2/5

Hurts Like Heaven - Sounds like Coldplay through that synthy ambient wash of the last track and I hate the lyric "use your heart as a weapon and it feels like heaven." It's like that last Robbie Williams album all over again. 2/5

Paradise - Reminds me of old school Nelly Furtado before lifting into uplifting strings. Probably a single. 3/5

Charlie Brown is a killers track with Chris Martin on vocals. 4/5

Us against the World - Depressing mess. Radiohead and Jeff Buckley do this better. 1/5

MMIX - Not even sure why this is here. 1/5

Every Teardrop is a waterfall - reaching for the stars, missing and landing on U2's guitarist who they proceed to hold at gun point until he comes up with terrible echo drenched lead lines for them. 1/5

Major Minus - Reminds me a little of Oasis and Muse. With hoots ala U2. Single. 5/5

UFO - see Us against the World, or don't if you want to resist suicide. 1/5

Princess of China - I'm not sure what's happening here at all. Maybe Rihanna made a mistake. Maybe Kanye West wrote this on a bad day. I keep expecting the Pet shop boys to appear to share a chorus before rihanna herself turns up. 2/5

Up in flames sounds like Coldplay used to. Did they forget to have someone rewrite this or something? Lovely sampled drum hits and synth bits, really nice work here, a songster's song. 4/5

A Hopeful transmission. Finally, I was wondering where the Pet Shop boys had gone. 1/5

Don't let it break your heart sounds like the sound of a breaking heart, this particular track is overly sibilant and full of glitchy snares and over compressed cymbals. At it's best tho it was only ever going to be an average track. 3/5

Up With the Birds - One of those introspective songs that bands that are in a mid life directional crisis do. I think U2 have made this song at least 14 times. What's with Brian Eno being picked for this anyway? 2.5/5

Tracks to download: Major Minus, Charlie Brown, Paradise.

Tracks to ignore: Everything else.

Conclusion: Don't worry, I'm sure they're better live and there's always the old albums to listen to.

Overall grade: All track scores added up together and divided by the number of tracks to give an average: 2 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 5 + 1 + 2 + 4 + 1 + 3 + 2.5 = 32.5

32.5 / 14 = 2.32142857 rounded up to 3 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was blurry, 19 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Logitech C120 Webcam (Electronics)
I noticed while I was playing with it that it had a focus (thank God, as I was about to send the purchaser off for a refund).

It's your bog standard 640 x 480 cam. The refresh rate is ok, definitely uninstall the software it uses, and only keep the driver installed, the software creates a deep refresh lag. I just gave it a quick go and it worked fine.

If you want sharp pictures you should get a HD cam tho.
