5.0 out of 5 stars genuinely an essential album, 25 Feb. 2006
This review is from: Plans (Audio CD)
I heard of Deathcab from a friend, and thank christ i did as this is one of the best albums i have heard in a long time.
Deathcab create, warm, lush, melodic songs, the best exponent of this being "when your haert is an empty room", and the lyrical content has a universal appeal, and yet dosent feel cliched in the slightest. Admittedly not every song is as good as tracks 5,6 and 7 but then, not very many are. (The others are still great anyway.)
If you have a taste in music that includes any type of rock/indie/emo music, then this album really should be in your collection. God only knows why Deathcab aren't one of the biggest bands on the earth, they sure as hell should be!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, 11 Dec. 2004
Put simply, this DVD explains why the chili peppers are regarded as one of, if not the best live act around today. They are so tight and yet so very, very funky throughout the performance.
Any bassist, or guitarist will be overawed by the musicianship, and anyone with any soul will be captivated by the chili peppers' boundless energy, and the seemingly telepathic connection that exists between Flea and John.
To cap it all, the set list has all of their best material, and they sound even better live than they do on record.
Buy this DVD. It will enrich your life. That is a promise.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry but this really isn't funny, 5 May 2004
This review is from: Airheads [1994] [DVD] (DVD)
I read the other reviews before I bought this, each and everyone said it was a classic and gave it 5 stars. I tried desperately to find this film funny, but apart from the odd moment it really isn't. Adam Sandler is no way near his best, and the dialogue is by and large utter crap. Think long and hard before you part with your cash on this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incubus are still great, 5 May 2004
It took a while, but I now think that this is right up there with their other albums (Science, Make yourself etc.) The first thing that u notice is that their sound has changed, which is primarily down to the new bassist, but the sound is one that is instantly recognisable as incubus.
There are some truly great songs here."Agoraphobia" is brilliantly atmospheric, and "Pistola" simply rocks. But my favourites are the sublime "here in my room" and "Leech" which together make the best ending to an album i have heard in quite a while. As with my favourite band (Chili Peppers) incubus's understanding of melody is getting better with age, and so are they

5.0 out of 5 stars Its worth 50 stars!!!!!!!, 18 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Quality Soft Core (Audio CD)
whether you like ska-punk or not, this is a fantastic album. Any open-minded music lover should buy this. It combines ska,punk,reggae and jazz, and creates something really special.
most importantly it puts you in a good mood wherever and whenever you listen to it.
Its a gem worth double the money and every member of the band deserves a knighthood. oh and "Goleta" will make you skank till you drop!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars this really is one of the best albums you will ever hear, 18 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Blood Sugar Sex Magik (Audio CD)
This album means so much to me that it is hard for me to articulate my admiration for it.... But here goes: The chili peppers are as vital, and sincere as music gets, and this album captures that completely. From the sublime "could've lied" and "Under the bridge" to the unbeatably funky "Funky monks","sir psycho sexy" and "if you have to ask" there is no weak track. No-one can call themselves a chilis fan if they do not own and love this album. The musicianship is unbeatable, the songcraft absolute genius and the end solo to "sir psycho sexy" is just something else.
Now go ahead and buy the album. It's not for any particular music lover, Its for lovers of truly great music.
