5.0 out of 5 stars The Man Talks Sense, 6 May 2006
This review is from: Late Registration (Audio CD)
The one thing I admire about Kanye West is the fact that he raps about real issues and important things that actually matter.

In my opinion, Hip-Hop/Rap - whatever you want to call it, has killed itself over the last few years because the artists are just repeatedly telling us about all the women, guns, drugs etc that they own.

Quite frankly, Im bored of it.

Kanye West has real talent, and this, along with The College Dropout, proves it.

"Gold Digger", "Roses", "Diamonds...", "Hey Mama" and "Gone" are among the highlights in this exceptional collection of bright, fresh and innovative songs.

In my humble opinion, this is what Hip-Hop should be about, not the glamorous bore it has rapidly become.

If you want real talent, real music and just damn good tunes, you'd be well advised to purchase Kanye's work.

This, along with the previous album is what Hip-Hop has needed all along.

Long Live Kanye

5.0 out of 5 stars The Music That Changed My Life, 2 May 2006
This review is from: Up the Bracket (Audio CD)
There really aren't the words to give any sort of true representation of this incredible album, but here goes.

Basically, this album changed the way I view life. It sounds very dramatic I know, but once you have heard this album you'll understand.

What you'll find within this CD is something that goes beyond music. It's poetry of the highest form. Art.

Pete Doherty has been all over the papers for this and that, and I realise that most people just read the stories and choose to dislike him. I'm aware that if I told the majority of the public to at least try his music they'd dismiss it and brand him 'a useless junkie'.

Well, each to their own and at the end of the day, it's their loss.

This really and truly is, in my opinion, the best album ever made. Each and every song has individuality, class beyond words and lyrics that send shivers down my spine on every listen.

'Vertigo' kicks off the album, and is classic rock'n'roll.

'Death on the stairs' is incredible, spine-tingling and the lead guitar has an air of sadness to it, which only adds to it's brilliance. Great lyrics sang faultlessly by Carl and Pete.

'Horrorshow' is an instant classic. Rock'n'roll at it's best. Pure Libertines.

'Time for heroes' has the most amazing lyrics. Pete's talent is showcased to the maximum in this incredible song. The line 'there are fewer more distressing sites than that of an English man in a baseball cap', in particular captures everything that the Libertines represent. It's effortless in its brilliance.

'Breck Rd. Boys in the band' has an amazing riff which, combined with Gary's impeccable drumming, leads to another fantastic song.

'Radio America' is packed with emotion, and everything is slowed down. It's simple, but extremely effective.

For me, 'Up the Bracket' is pure British rock'n'roll. Pete puts incredible character into this song, and the lyrics tell a witty story.

'Tell the King'. This for me, is the song of the album and possibly the Libertines' greatest song of all time. The lyrics are incredible; "You're like a journalist oh you can cut an' paste an' twist". It's genius. You have to listen to this song, if it's the last thing you do. Takes my breath away everytime.

'The Boy Looked at Johnny' is light-hearted and great fun. The guitar, drums, voice and lyrics remain flawless.

'Begging' is sung solely by Carl, and he clearly displays his talent. Whilst not the toast of the album, it's still a brilliant tune.

'The Good Old Days' is another one of my favourites. The lyrics basically tell the story of the Libertines and everything that drives them. It's both moving and wonderful in equal measures. The line, "If you've lost your faith in love and music, oh the end won't be long" says it all really.

Finally, I have never heard a better ending to an album than 'I Get Along'. Carl belts this classic out with heart and soul and it really works. Yet another brilliant song. One of the best lines of the album comes in the middle, but I won't quote it for obvious reasons (if you've heard the song!)

All I can say is that this album is unbelievably inspirational, to the point that it upsets me to think what life would be like without it!

It's up to you to judge Pete as you wish, but his music speaks for itself. And not forgetting the other boys; Carl, Gary and John who are obviously a massive part of this amazing band and album. But try to look beyond the headlines, because if you don't, you truly are missing out on something great.

Long live the Libertines!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Refreshing, 27 April 2006
This review is from: Inside In/Inside Out (Audio CD)
This album is a brilliant cocktail of summer strumming and edgy rock tunes. The Kooks are the best thing to come out of 2006 (along with the Arctic Monkeys), and are certainly the best band to come from the south since The Libertines graced our ears.

The album kicks off with the excellent 'Seaside', a simple yet beautiful song that contains only an acoustic guitar and Luke's fantastic vocals. The next couple of songs are great as well. 'See The World' and 'Sofa' are brilliant album tracks, but the highlights are yet to come. 'Eddie's Gun', 'Ooh La', 'You Don't Love Me', and 'She Moves In Her Own Way' are faultless and fantastic.

'Matchbox' takes a while to grow, but after a few plays, this track really comes into its own and is, yet again, amazing.

I'm sure everyone is familiar with 'Nave', which is another incredible piece of work by the Kooks.

The highest of the 14 highlights, in my opinion are 'Eddie's Gun', 'She Moves In Her Own Way' and 'Nave'.

I think it is unfair to compare the Kooks to the Arctic Monkeys, whether you think they are better than them or not. At the end of the day, the Kooks and the Arctic Monkeys, whilst being placed in that rather ambiguous 'Indie' genre, have very different styles to each other. In my opinion, they are both fantastic bands and both have the right to be at the top.

All in all, a truly incredible album that deserves a listen. I could write for pages about the quality of this album, so I'll just say that it really is a dazzling collection of songs.

You do not need to choose between the Kooks and the Arctic Monkeys, they are both amazing bands.

Other recommendations; The Libertines, Dirty Pretty Things and of course, the Arctic Monkeys!

5.0 out of 5 stars What's Wrong With Everyone?, 22 April 2006
This album is clearly an incredible piece of work with impecible songwriting, magestic drumming and all-round fantastic music.

Why are people critisizing the Arctic Monkeys because they have bee hyped up so much? It's not their fault after all.

It seems that in the music business, no matter how talented, fresh or diverse a new band is, somebody has to be negative and pedantic about them.

The Arctic Monkeys are clearly a superb band, packed to the brim with talent and heart. I can't understand why people are labelling the fans "Chavs". At the end of the day, it is young people who mould the music business, and if it wasn't for such fans, bands such as Oasis and the Libertines would never have made it.

People need to stop fighting against gifted musicians and should start to nurture and encourage them before they give up, otherwise we will be forever stuck with manufactured rubbish.

This truly is a brilliant album, and the highlights include the hypnotic 'Dancing Shoes', the downright excellent 'Fake Tales...' and the class of 'A Certain Romance'.

I plead with you to buy this album, it's amazing!

A*** :D

5.0 out of 5 stars Not The Libertines, But Not Far Off, 21 April 2006
This review is from: Down in Albion (Audio CD)
This album IS top quality, and unfortunately I think the bad reviews are down to numerous comparisons with The Libertines. The sad truth is The Libertines could, and never will be bettered or replaced.

For that very reason, I think it is unfair to critisize Babyshambles work. This album is quite raw but contains some beautiful music and even some lyrical genius from Ms(Kate)Moss.

I'd say that the highlights include 'A'Rebours', 'Albion' and 'Back From The Dead' although they are quite soft,gentle songs. In terms of heavier songs 'F**k Forever' and 'Kilamangiro' deserve a mention, but the other songs on the album are fantastic as well. There us even a sequel, 'What Katie Did Next' which takes a couple of listens, but is excellent. However, it could never match the original.

I think Pete has done a good job with 'The Shambles' and I hope he will continue to write superb songs.

Please don't dismiss this album because of his negative press, and don't expect The Libertines, but it is not far off.

I strongly suggest you buy this album ASAP, and watch out for Dirty Pretty Things.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Second Best Album of All Time, 11 April 2006
This review is from: The Libertines (Audio CD)
'Up the Bracket' being the first. But this self-titled sequal is not far off. Another immense piece of work by the best band in the world. Once again, each song is drenched in passion, emotion and pure rock'n'roll. It really is a quite unbelievable piece of work, and is truly inspirational.

In comparison to 'Up the Bracket' this is a tiny bit slower, but that's not always a bad thing. And of course, it does contain one of the best songs of all time - 'Can't Stand Me Now'.

So, kicking off with 'Can't Stand Me Now'. What can I say? For those who have never heard this incredible song you need to hear this song before you die. Enough said.

'Last Post On The Bugle' is sort of soulful rock'n'roll. The drumming is top quality, and riff is unbelievably catchy.

'Don't Be Shy' is one of those songs that it seems the band just had fun with. Everthing is faultless and the lyrics are wonderfully quirky.

'The Man Who Would Be King' is the sequel to 'Tell The King' off the previous album. It's pretty impossible to equal 'Tell The King' because, in my opinion, it is one of the best songs of all time. But this is a fantastic sequel, and whilst not troubling it's predecessor, it is still amazing. The lead guitar is just too sexy for words.

'Music When The Lights Go Out'. What a song. Definitely one of the Libs' best ever. The lyrics are beautiful and will almost certainly make you cry at some point. The acoustic guitar, combined with the riff of the lead guitar is quite incredible.

'Narcissist' is a brilliant tune. The lead guitar WILL make you dance, even if you are in the worst mood. The lyrics are quality and Carl sings them perfectly.

'The Ha Ha Wall' is another great song.Amazing lyrics by Pete. Certainly not the highlight of the album, but still brilliant.

'Arbeit Mach Frei' is great fun. The boys obviously had a great time with this one. Short and punchy, a perfect album song. Wonderfully random.

'Campaign of Hate' sounds slightly ska inspired. It has a definite rhythm to it, and whilst not a favourite of mine, it certainly has a deserved place on this album. Yet more great lyrics.

'What Katie Did' is definitely one of the highlights. Beautiful lyrics and the lead guitar is amazing. It's hard to find words to describe how great this song is - just listen and you'll know.

'Tomblands' is slightly more rock'n'roll. A good bit of fun. It's kind of pirate-rock'n'roll chic. Brilliant!

'The Saga' is another more up-tempo song. The guitar is amazing, and everything just combines perfectly for a superb tune.

'Road To Ruin' again seems ska-inspired. Not a highlight, but not to be overlooked. Catchy riff and excellently sung.

'What Became Of The Likely Lads' is very poignant considering this bands' fate. An instant classic from the Libs' and a perfect yet emotional end to the greatest band ever.

This honestly is an incredible album. If you choose to ignore it then you really are missing out on something that could change the way you feel about music and life.

Quite unbelievable.

The Libertines deserve to live for eternity

1.0 out of 5 stars Oooooooooooooooah, ooooooooooahhhhhhhh No!, 2 April 2006
This review is from: Employment (Audio CD)
This album is a bunch of one-dimensional, lifeless and quite simply, irritating "songs".

The Kaiser Chiefs have to be one of the most over-rated bands in the history of music, nay, the history of sound.

What's even worse is that I used to like them.

There is nothing to this album, the lyrics are meaningless and the music is is like drinking a pint of lukewarm water.

I won't even get started on the number of awards that they have won, because I cant be bothered.

At the end of the day, I'm pleading with you to avoid this album like the plague because it's a waste of time and money. I wont go into detail about the lowly depths this album manages to reach beacuse it isn't worth it, and frankly, I dont have the words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Darling, we're a fashion don't you know?, 14 Jan 2006
This review is from: Chemistry (Audio CD)
Wow. Finally some genuine pop music. I am a fan of lots of genres of music, however, upbeat, manufactured pop has never really been on my playlists.

Then one day along come Girls Aloud. Like the majority of the population I quickly dismissed them, though their first single was fantastic. I do not own any of the girls previous albums, because despite some really catchy singles, I never saw them to be Album material.

So, then comes the song Biology. Wow, what a tune. Its so different from everyday pop tunes and just brings a fresh new vibe to the British music scene. I waited for the next single, See The Day which I was really impressed with, so I bought the album and lets just say, I dont regret it.

It kicks off with the superb 'Models',upbeat and fun to dance to in your bedroom! Next is Biology.
'Wild Horses' then comes and is just a superb, attitude-ridden slamming tune, with some wonderfully quirky verses. After this comes 'See The Day', and then 'Watch Me Go' which is a slightly weaker tune, but is listenable to.
'Waiting' is simply fantastic. The crazy lyrics build the song up and Nadine and Nicola's vocals are faultless. Next is a brilliant ballad - 'Whole Lotta' History'. The beginning is a little weak, but the vocals of Cheryl, Nadine and Nicola make the song great, and give real emotion to it. Fantastic.

'Long Hot Summer' didnt do too well last year, but it does seem to grow on you the more you hear despite the random first line - "I know you like to wear my dressing gown when I'm not there".

'Swinging London Town' is fantastic, but im not quite sure why. It takes such a new direction in music, that it needs many listens. 'Its Magic' and 'No Regrets' are good album tracks, but are not right for release. Finally, 'Racey Lacey' signs off with style and fun. An upbeat fab pop tune, that reminds me of 'The Show'.
All in all, a magnificant album with REAL POP TUNES. Dont expect deep and meaningful lyrics, cuz they aint here!
Something I love about Girls Aloud, is that they dont pretend to write the songs, or produce them or anything like that. They know what they are and they excell in it.
Their music makes people happy, so whats the problem? Dance away, have fun and buy this album. Honestly the best pop album I own. It is very impressive - well done girls - keep it going!
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

5.0 out of 5 stars An The Best 'Teen Movie' Ever Goes To..., 19 Dec 2005
This review is from: Mean Girls [2004] [DVD] (DVD)
I, like im sure most people did, looked at the advert for this film and simply dismissed it as 'Yet More American Teenage Rubbish'.
Despite my slightly critical view, I decided to check it out anyway. Well, to say I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. This is not only the best "Teen Movie" of all time, but is actually one of the best films I have seen in a long while. It is, in fact, an insult to call this a Teen Movie, because it contains wit, humour, a compelling storyline and some fantastic acting from the likes of Linsey Lohan and Rachel McAdams. There are also some great 1-liners and some hilarious scenes. I always feel that if a comedy forces you to laugh out loud, like this one did, it is a very good sign. PLEASE DON'T BE PUT OFF IF YOU ARE NOT A TEENAGE GIRL, THIS FILM IS CLEVER, QUIK WITTED AND ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS!!!
