Nice Cheekbones and a Phd
Nice Cheekbones and a Phd
Offered by Direct Entertainment UK
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The Posies acoustic and live Part 2, 28 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Never letting their 'break up' stop them from creating new albums, The Posies revisited their first acoustic live album by creating this EP with 5 more songs. You should by it just for the great title alone ... pure Posies.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Posies acoustic and live Part 1, 28 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After receiving great succes in the nineties, The Posies 'kinda' broke up when the millenium changed. But not before creating a rather mediocre live album which they corrected with this much better acoustic live album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A biography, 15 Jan 2014

This review is from: The Ramones (Paperback)
The Ramones. Best punk band ever.

An attempt to tell their story through interviews with as many people as possible. Only Johnny Ramone's autobiography might be better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A soundtrack ..., 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dave Grohl records little album in LA on an old mixing board. Little album changes music as we know it and sells millions and millions of copies. Grohl starts new band. Becomes even bigger and bigger. Recording studio shuts down. Panel is up for sale. Grohl buys said piece of equipment and films the process ... making a documentary.

This is the collections of songs he recorded on that mixing board before it left the room. With friends from different bands (Josh Homme, Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, Trent Reznor ...) resulting in different songs and genres. Creating an excellent overview of rock music from the 60's, 70's ... straight into the here and now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great !, 15 Jan 2014

This review is from: Welcome Oblivion (Audio CD)
Yes, great with an exclamation mark. Their first full album contains a few songs from the second EP but contains so much different songs, fluctuating between genres, that it's hard to define this new outfit of Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor, his wife Mariqueen and frequent collaborator Atticus Ross. NIN fans will either love it or hate it. Everyone else has the chance to look at it with fresh eyes (and ears). Try it and wash the commercial garbage from your radio. Go on, what;s the worst that can happen ?

Different than Nine Inch Nails. Different than their previous EP. Different than the album that followed. Nice little collection of something new and different than the commercial trite that fills the airwaves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Massacre (Audio CD)
Might be their best album ever. Blew me away when I was in high school. Started looking for it 2 years ago when I found the cassette tape I had lying around. Hard to find, nice to have. In all honesty : I don't have any of their other albums, so YMMV.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, not great., 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Slightly better than season 5, with a few really great episodes or scenes, but something is getting stale and they just can't seem to shake it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice come back, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hesitation Marks (Audio CD)
When Trent Reznor put Nine Inch Nails on hold in late 2009, everyone expected him to come back at one point. Yet, after the steady flow of other releases (soundtracks and how to destroy angels), no one expected it to be so soon. And the album doesn't disappoint. Sure, it's different ... as usual. It's difficult ... again. And it needs a few listens to fully appreciate all the details ... no surprises there. But it sure is a great come back in near perfect form after only 4 years. There have been times when NIN wasn't on hiatus, it took 5 or even 6 years waiting inbetween albums.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not their best but ..., 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Debut album. Heavy on the eighties synths, low on guitars and noise. The remastered version sounds slightly more open and contains a b-side (get down, make love) but not a must for anyone who already has the original. Unless you just gotta have every release possible.
