Price: £9.94

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking rollercoaster of blood, 9 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dexter Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
While a small concensus suggests that Series 2 didn't quite have the octane buzz of the first series, I have to disagree and state that S2 continues to leave you gasping for more at the end of each episode. Similar to Dexter's blood lust, anyone who watches will have a slavering desire to consume and consume again. It never runs out of steam and keeps you chewing off your face with tension. A masterpiece of a series, and easily the best to come out of America since The Sopranos.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strap-on Bob, 18 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Body of Song (Audio CD)
Back to some sort of old form. It's growing on me despite earlier resistance. But why the heck does he insist on using that horrible electronic voice treatment vocoder thingy that was used more (in)famously by Cher? I almost threw the CD out of my car window in despair at some stages.
Bob's always going to suffer at my hands because I expect a barnstormer like 'Poison Years' every time, and end up being disappointed. A bit like sleeping with an old flame; you pretend to yourself that you're enjoying it, but end up with tinges of regret.
In saying that, Bob's guitar stuff is always gonna be a million miles higher than anyone else. Even God sometimes puts his pants on back to front.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Keys - Rubbery it aint, 7 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Rubber Factory (Audio CD)
Carrying on from 'Thickfreakness' and the much underated 'Big Come Up', the Black keys put out another platter of diesel-smelling dirty groundwater blues rock.
The harsh production lends an air of authenticity missing in so many of today's over-produced airbrushed bands. But leaving the album aside -which is great- you really should grab the chance to see them live. A truly awesome experience. Catch them while they're still doing smaller venues. The Black Keys will rise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Janes are back, 9 Jun. 2003
This review is from: So What (Audio CD)
Janes return with a thunderstorm that matches some of their best moments. despite slipping with some poor releases, drug problems and embarassing experiments with dj-ing, Perry Farrell returns to form. A howling screaming monster of a track with searing guitar work and pulsating rhythms that we expect from LA's finest. On their day only Led Zep can top Janes for creating a beastial unworldly rock entity. On the basis of this hors d'oevres, the new album should be a feast to drag us slavering to the table. Go buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping angst carnival, 10 Feb. 2003
This review is from: You Are Free (Audio CD)
Chen Marshall has stepped onto another plane with this stunning collection of haunted songs. Stripped bare and creaking like an old derelict museum, the album bleaches your soul and leaves you with a sense of exhausted elation. There are enough upbeat numbers like "Shaking Paper" and "He War" to satify diversity. But these merely put flesh on the bones of a body whose ghostly visage turns sepia pages of thought and memory. Songs like "Names" and "Good Woman" can reduce you to tears at 20 paces.
Wholly recommended. Nobody or nothing sounds like the Cat. A landmark release.
