5.0 out of 5 stars Muse's most lyrically and musically intelligent album, the best., 2 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Origin of Symmetry (Audio CD)
This was the second MUSE album i have listened to, after BLACK HOLES AND REVELATIONS, and this is just as good, and could be even better. Most of the songs are very emoey, but are also very good. I love the cover as well.

1. New Born
The lead track of the album, at three different levels it describes how humanity will become like a new born, because it has seen to much. Starts soft, then builds up to rock. 10/10
2. Bliss
A good rock track, positive lyrics but still manages to sound like it is emo music. 10/10
3. Space Dementia
Haunting, dark, creates the picture the title spells out perfectly.9/10
4. Hyper Music
Music no longer melodic, but hard, rough, with lyrics to match. Truly thrilling. 10/10
5. Plug in Baby
A bit like New Born in lyrics, but much more fun, a dance track, but not pop. It is still high quality. 9/10
6. Citizen Erased
A great track, one of muse's most artistic songs. This catures the hell of being followed by the media, and is a prog epic to match. 10/10
7. Micro Cuts
The music is good, but the fact you can't hear any of the words stops this from being a great track. 7/10
8. Screenager
A soft track, with an electric tint. 8/10
9. Dark Shines
Another dark song, describing the attraction to the dark in humankind. CHAOS PANIO! 9/10
10. Feeling Good
A truly awesome cover of the classic song. 10/10
11. Megalomania
Final track soft, and also a kind of THE MATRIX lyric theme. The best bit was the organ. 8/10
(BONUS TRACK) Futurism
I didn't get this off the album, but off an EP, although i am aware it was a bonus track on the album first.
A truly amazing, if not depressing song, very claustrophobic. 10/10

4.0 out of 5 stars Less of STAR WARS, 22 Sep 2012
This review is from: Eldest (Paperback)
Apart from a few remaining faults, Eldest is not as STAR WARS orientated as Eragon, putting in a few more original touches. It's still not the most original book ever, and sometimes the pace is a little slow, but it is still an engaging book, and Eragon's transformation by the elves is interesting. We learn many new magic, or Gramyre, skills, while meanwhile Roran, Eragon's uncle's son, struggles to uphold the peace of Carvahall when it is attacked by the Ra'zac.
The most original thing: a scientist in a fantasy novel. The king of Surda is a "Natural philosopher" old land's version of a biologist, and investigates how to create a vacum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Investigate the alternate universe, 22 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After a shaky start, Fringe-Season 2 exceeded the first by a long shot. From episode 10 onwards, just about every episode was amazing. There is a lot discovered in this series, including a secret from Walter's past. The alternate universe fuels over half the episode plots, right up to an amazing finale actually set over the other side. The only downside were the first nine episodes which were, with a few exeptions, not brilliant. But they were still good.
The chemistry between Walter, Peter and Olivia is still strong, and Astrid Farmsworth plays a much larger role in this series. The new villans are the shapeshifters from the other side, led by Thomas Jerome Newton, who is named after a character David Bowie played (just like David Robert Jones was named after David Bowie's birth name).
Best episodes "Grey Matters" "Jacksonville" and "Over There".

2.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive, more so than anything else, 8 Sep 2012
Smallville is a great show, but takes a while to get going, and you can see it very clearly here. The episodes are practically the same, and you could probably watch the pilot and finale and not miss much. Every single episode is the same. Kryptonite freak is discovered, decides they are evil, kidnaps Lana/Martha/Chloe, and Clark saves them in the nick of time. The only thing that makes this show worth watching is Lex Luthor, the eccentric son of Lionel Luthor, and in the distant future Clark Kent's arch enemy. But not being familiar with Superman before this, I found Lex to be an engaging character, perhaps the only one. Clark is annoyingly good and has no sense of humor and Lana spends her time moping about her parents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Five Devils, 1 Sep 2012
This, the sequel to the brilliant A Game of Thrones, was a bit slow to start. Indeed, it was not as good as the first book, and a third of the way through I almost gave up. But when one of the characters die in a very surprising way, the book picks up the pace, and just keeps getting better. Although it never got to quite the quality of A Game of Thrones, it was close, and the characters are really fleshed out well. Davos had a very interesting personality, and Theon Greyjoy, who has a troubled mind behind that smile, also was an entertaining new character. With old characters, I found Dany Targaryen to be a big dissapointment, after hers was the best storyline of the first book. But Arya's storyline took a turn for the better. No more being forced to be a lady for her.
All in all, a great book, even if it does not quite live up to the brilliance of A Game of Thrones.

3.0 out of 5 stars Star Wars with dragons, 31 Aug 2012
This is a good read, BUT it draws almost the entirety of it's plot from the first STAR WARS film. From the first few chapters, a farm boy (Eragon/Luke Skywalker) living with his uncle, then getting taught by a elderly nobody (Brom/Obi-one) who turns out to be part of an order which has been overthrown (Jedi/Dragon Riders) by someone who was formerly part of that order (Galbatorix/Darth Vadar). Then the main character joins a secret opposition to the enemy (Varden/Rebel Alliance) and then defeats a large portion of the enemy forces at the end. The only thing that does not represent someone in STAR WARS in Saphira, Eragon's blue dragon. She is NOT is lightsaber, but a living being who has a complicated friendship and mental bonding with Eragon, unlike his lightsaber, which is just a weapon.
This book has a good story, but if you have seen STAR WARS, it probably will not keep you guessing.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best comedy's ever, 30 Aug 2012
This show is extremly funny, and shows that nerds are awesome. The best characters are probably Sheldon, Amy and Howard. Sheldon for his computer like brain, always thinking he is right, he reminds me of someone I know. But despite this, he still as many faults, such as his tendency for childish behavior and not understanding facial expressions and the like. Howard is so confident, a little like Jay from the Inbetweeners, but girls find him so creepy. And Amy is just, well, weird. I think she's got a thing for Penny.
The show manages to come up with consistently great jokes, and despite starting to wane towards the forth season, and a lot more during the fifth season, it is still great, and I look forward to the impending sixth season.

4.0 out of 5 stars A tough FBI agent, a mad scientist and his sarcastic son., 29 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fringe starts off very formulaic, like Smallville, but very quickly develops an exiting arc. There is a bald man called the observer who watches everything, and a global corporation called Massive Dynamic, both of who will play major rolls in the future. The main characters are those described in the title, and there is an interesting dynamic between the three of them. The best episodes are 'The Arrival, 'Safe' and 'Ability'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alternative, 29 Aug 2012
I had only listened to a few Muse songs before i bought this. The difference between this and the shallow, empty songs that get played on the radio these days is astounding. Yes, there are songs that aren't about breakup here.

1.Take a Bow
A depressing, dark first track, punishing a world leader for his sins, and telling him to burn in hell. Very dramatic ending. 10/10
An intergalactic love song, a little bit like Twilight but without the annoyingness. 10/10
3.Supermassive Black Hole
High pitched 8/10
4.Map of the Problematipue
A song about escaping "Desolation and Dispair", with a sci-fi style backing track. 9/10
5.Soldier's Poem
A more downbeat song expressing the unfairness of life. 7/10
6. Invincible
The most unorignal song on the album. 6/10
7. Assassin
The fastest, most explosive song, about becomeing an assassin. 10/10
8. Exo-Polotics
Aleins are invading. 10/10
9. City of Delusion
A dramatic, repetitive song about getting revenge, and breaking down the walls of delusion. 10/10
10. Hoodoo
Slow, Boring. 6/10
11. Knights of Cydonia
Knights, on Mars. 11/10

All in all, 9/10

5.0 out of 5 stars The Return of Naruto, 15 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Naruto: volume 28 (Paperback)
After two years training with Jariya, Naruto returns to Konoha. Almost as soon as he gets back, though, Gaara, now Kage of his village, is kidnapped by the mysterious Akatsuki.
This is almost a new seres, as it begins part II, and unlike volume 1, it is straight into the action. The battle Gaara and Akatsuki member Deidara was very interesting. Looking forward to more about the Jinchuriki hosts of the tailed beasts, and the Akatsuki's plan to capture them.
