5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a decent compilation out there, 3 Jun 2003
This review is from: Dark Side of the 80s (Audio CD)
In the past I have been very wary and sceptical of compilation albums. They would generally have a few songs you like and then be filled with mediocre material just to fill the CD. However this time I took a chance and bought DarkSide of the 80's and I wasn't dissapointed.
CD1 has your darker more 'gothy' tracks and CD2 is dare I say it a little more bouncy. There were a few bands and tracks I hadn't heard before but these seem to fit in well with the overall feel of the album, giving it depth and not just full of fillers.
I'd reccomend this to any fans of The Sisters of Mercy, The Mission, Fields of the Nephilim etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to the new age of Dragonlance, 25 Jun 2001
This book is fantastic. As a huge fan of the classic Dragonlance books I was a bit wary at first of the new age of mortals. I've read a few Bridges of Time series that span the 30 years between the classics and the fifth age books. This book spans that time in a few detailed chapters that recount decades of history in a brief but detailed way. You can easily read this and skip over the bridges of time series or explore the events described in detail in them. Dawning of a new age introduces new characters alongside old favourites with plenty of references to the original heroes. In true Dragonlance style you quickly fall in love with new characters and rapidly learn to trust them and sympathise with their pains and losses. The story itself surrounds new heroes facing the new evil dragon overlords. The backgrounds to these overlords is equally detailed and gripping. The style of the book can be a little jumpy and in the earlier chapters its hard to know what time period you are in buit Jean Rabe is an excellent author and very descriptive. All in all I would reccomend this book to all Dragonlance fans and anyone that wants to pick up the story from the new age.

4.0 out of 5 stars superb collection of subroutines, 9 Feb 2001
This book has a suberb collection of subroutines for almost any problem. It also explains how the subroutines work and briefly explains the principles behind them without confusing the reader with too much theory. Some of the old routines that didn't work as they should now work perfectly with the updated Fortran 90 version.
