4.0 out of 5 stars Don'tget much sweat-er than this!, 15 Jan. 2005
This review is from: Natural Progression (Audio CD)
I didn't know much about this album when I picked it up in Frisco - I gambled. My word did that gamble pay off!
Great lyrics, funky beats and plenty of tracks to keep you tappin' along to. A class LP with a similar sound to J5.
As someone else rightly points out - what's going on with Canadian rapping?
Right now this, along with the unbelievable Abdominal, is some of the best real hip hop has to offer at the mo.
Lookin' forward to some more, lads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lifesavas are lifesavers, 27 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Spirit In Stone (Audio CD)
Thank you Quannum! I've been desperate to find my album of the year but Spirit In Stone has saved me.
This wonderful, funky LP is a great example of what real Hip-Hop is about . . . there's no bling here, just pure beats.
Every song is a classic that you'll want to listen to over and over again. There are a couple of gems as well, including Hellohihey (a great one to get on vinyl for mixing).
Very cool, very easy and very, very addictive.
Congrats, boyz and can we please have another album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Feist's Talont has returned!, 26 Nov. 2003
Like many other Feist fans, I was a little bit frustrated at some of Feist's recent works. They were still good but lackes the sparkle and magic contained in his first Riftwar saga.
Talon Of The Silver Hawk is brilliant!
It is new, fresh and increases your knowledge of Midkemia.
Talon is a young boy who lives in the mountains with his people.
When he is away....becoming a man.....his village and entire race is wiped-out.
This starts a thrilling journeyu that sees Talon slowly find his feet and search for the people who murdered his tribe.
Many old friends from other Feist books return and overall, it's a great read.
Once you finish it, you'll be back on Amazon to purchase the next book, King Of Foxes, which is just as good as this one.
Well done's great to have you back

5.0 out of 5 stars Feist your eyes on this one!, 9 Oct. 2003
A fantastic book! I read Murder at La Mutt first which is the second installment of the legends of the Riftwar. With that being such a let-down I wasn't hoping for much out of this book.
Wow! Full of action, leadership and Midkemia mystery.
Kingdom troops are forced to join with Tsurani as they try to escape the horror of the Mordhel.
Great imagery in this novel which has been sadly lacking in some of Feist's recent works.
Well done that this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars One Cell of a game!, 2 Oct. 2003
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell is a great game. If you like subterfuge, SAS, being a sneaky legend, then you'll love this game.
It was one of the reasons I spent a lot of monney on a new graphics card - the graphics are amazing.
Great lighting and seamless movement adds to the tension of he game.
You are a Splinter Cell, and it's your job to do some serious sneaking and killing.
The game-play is great and some of Sam Fisher's (main character)moves are really cool. The best one is when you stradle walls to hide yourself from an enemy pasing below you.
It's a cracker of a game and must be played by all. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because it's a bit short, quite simple after you get the hang of it and the shooting is not anything special.
This is a shame because everything else is so spot on and detailed yet when you shoot someone, it's like playing an old nintendo game....just too easy and not like Counter Strike.
Apart from that, it's great. Buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Praise the greatest game ever, 2 Oct. 2003
When my friend got this game for me, I wasn't that bothered. "But it's the nuts", he told me and so I grudgingly started to play.
Well....gaming does not get any better than this. In fact, there's so much to this game that I can't be bothered to explain it to you. I've been playing it for a month and I'm only 45% of the way through - I still have so much to learn about it, yet I feel that I know so much.
As well as following a story-line, you can do what you want...Kill people, speed around the city, rob shops, do police missions, put out fires, sell drugs, race mini cars, - I mean the list really is endless.
Great graphics and the music...the music is out of this world! Every time you jump into a car/bus/plane etc, you get a choice of about 9 different radio stations. Great tunes from Jacko, Toto, Kate Bush - fantatstic oldies and different styes for different tastes. (Emotion is the one you want though).
As a game, GTA:VC can't be beat! It's that simple. If you like computer games, you'll love this. If you don't then there is something seriously wrong with you.
Enjoy, it's impossible not to!

4.0 out of 5 stars War's Hell .... this is heaven!, 2 Oct. 2003
I was very unsure about purchasing this game as I'm not a huge fan of stratagy games where I just sit and watch.
Medievil: Total War however is a master-stroke!
There is a lot to do in this game but your main objective is to control Europe by whatever means possible. You can go all out and just fight every country, or use cunning and subterfuge to gain more land.
What is so good about this game is that if you want to fight a can. Once war has been declared, you leave the map of Europe, where you are positioning your Kings, Queens and assasins, and enter the battle field.
Or, if your army outnumbers the enemy, just let the computer do it for you automatically.
Easily the best part of this game is on the battle field. Make sure you do the practice first as the lessons taught there are very useful.
The detail of each individual soldier is great and the rules of battle are fantastic to learn.
Once you've mastered the game, which can drag on a little bit, it's great to watch your empire grow.
Enjoy this one and lead your army as every King should.
(The music is great as well).

4.0 out of 5 stars Not brilliant but still MOH, 1 Oct. 2003
After being won over by MOH's first release, I was very excited to play this add-on. Just like the D-Day beach invasion in Allied Assult, the opening to this expansion pack is crazy.
Parachuting from the sky with all hell going on around you befoe you finally crash into a barn and begin your journey.
Make sure you play this game on hard level, becasue otherwise it's pretty simple. Good to see some British soldiers in the game and there are some fantastic levels in the snow.
Probably the best one is when you have to take on the whole bloody German army to stop them advancing beyond your line.
Overall, MOH fans need to buy this game and even if you don't won the original, it's still a good intro to a truely amazing game.
Looking forward to MOH Allied Assult Breakthrough.

2.0 out of 5 stars Feist Muders LaMut, 23 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Murder in Lamut (Hardcover)
I've nearly read all of Feist's fantastic work and I have to say this is his worst so far.
It has a fantastic introduction where he brings together the three heros of the book - Pirojil, Kethol and Durine.
But the story does not got anywhere. I got halfway through the book and was telling myself that it would all kick off soon...but sadly it doesn't.
The murder mystery is short and squeezed in at the end and I was left annoyed that Feist didn't use his talent to make this book a cracker.
There is so much potential - three mercenaries with different styles, tastes and skills and all bloody good at what they do. There is not enough fighting, love or intruige that Feist is usually so good at.
This book is a let-down. Buy it if your a fan and just keep going - there are some perks in the book. The indepth knowledge shown about soldiery and battle is a refreshing change but not enough to make this one any good.
If this is your first Feist novel...please save yourself and read something, anything, else.

Silverthorn (Riftwar Saga)

3.0 out of 5 stars SilverThorrn in the side of Feist, 4 Sept. 2003've just finished Feist's epic Magician and you are desperate to continue the riftwar saga. Silverthorn is not the best follow-up to his first book but then again, how do you follow such an amazing opener?
The best section of the book is one that will stay in your mind throught your Feist journey. Jimmy the Hand jumping gracefully across the roooftops of Krondor to take on an assasin trying to take out Prince Arutha.
Sadly, the book slows down from there and although Arutha's journey into the enemy heartland is a gripping ride, there is little to make this an exciting book.
Nice story-line (Prince trying to save his Princess) but lacking in the quality we all now Feist is capable of.
Despite the bad reviews, your need to read this book to set yourselves up for the next installment - possibly Feist's greatest novel - A Darkness At Sethanon.
