5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden gem, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can;t believe this one passed me by - Arcade Fire have some great rarities out there that aren't that easy to track down (see also 'Broken Window', 'Cold Wind') - hopefully one day they'll put a collection together to spread them further afield, this really is too good to be hidden away on a b-side.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy listen(ing), 6 May 2014
This review is from: American Interior (Audio CD)
The other review names two of the best songs on the album, unfortunately a lot of the rest of the album suffers slightly from falling into the easy listening category - kind of a less memorable Hotel Shampoo, which itself fell asleep on itself in a couple of places. That being said - there's enough here to keep us uber-Gruff fans happy. American Interior carries on the last album's lead with a off-kilter lead single, while 100 Unread Messages is Gruff's take on Johnny Cash, and sounds great. Elsewhere Iolo adds a bit of depth/difference to the other lush material. But along with last year's dissapointing Neon Neon album (but excellent Years of Lead ep), this highlights it really may be time for Gruff to give his old bandmates a call and crack on with a new Super Furries record.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad Ending, 25 July 2007
It seems that a lot of people are thinking the same thing - why add on that epilogue at the end? The book finished perfectly at the end of Chapter 36, with a lingering question that could leave it open for a future instalment, or just to offer the fans thir own ideas of how things would turn out for our heroes - but then the epilogue went and spoiled it in such a smaltzy, cheesy way....

Despite this, this was a good book - at times it got caught up in explanations too much, but the action scenes read like watching a film - fast paced, shocking and enthralling. Like the others, it's hard to see how they will reproduce this for the screen - so much to cover, so many characters to include (including ones who've been cut from previous films).

The much publicised deaths are at times unexpected, and sometimes things don't work out like you think they should - but that's life!
