5.0 out of 5 stars Laser Virtual Paintball - All of the Fun, None of the Mess!, 23 Dec. 2003

This review is from: Laser Virtual Paintball (Toy)
Have you ever wanted to play paintball without getting covered in paint? Or maybe you can't be bothered to drive to the nearest forest? Well here is the answer. This pack of 2 provides all the fun to start a 1 on 1. It really is a lot of fun, especially when the "bullets" bounce off walls! Get a load of friends with their own guns & you can have a whole army vs army. For even more fun go down to the nearest wood, or even back garden. The house is the place for 1 vs 1. The brilliant thing about this is that there are no 1-hit kills, and each shot fires 1 round, with 10 hit to kill. You also get the rapid fire mode, which fries 3 shots in quick succession. You also get "magazines" so after x amount of shots, you have to reload. Quite realistic, yet loads of fun! You can play stealth SAS style or head-first mad chamacharzi! Either way you end up with loads of laughter. THe receiver pads also are in the right place so it is still quite realistic. Loads of fun and kids of all ages (not older teenagers and up though) will enjoy it. But be warned; they will start running around pretending to be Commandos!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Essential Michael Nyman Band Cd Review, 13 Nov. 2003
This CD contains all of Michael Nyman's best tracks ever made, ranging from "Time Lapse" to "Fish Beach". Some of these you may remember or you may not. This is definitely though a CD to get and is a perfect compliment to your CD collection. It is also quite good for new classical music listeners.
Nyman's music is incredibly detailed and coursely textured, with the pieces using a whole range of different instruments, for Sax to Cello. Some of it is fast-moving, some not. There is a whole range of different styles on this CD. The Nyman band have certainly played these pieces to perfection. No two tracks are the same, and you will quickly love his totally different and unique style. Some of the pieces you will recognize, some you won't. "Time Lapse" is my particular favourite, with its intricate and complex structure, though I feel other pieces come quite close. "Chasing sheep is best left to shepards" is also quite good, with a typical Monarchy style, like you're at Buckingham Palace; and a very upper-class style. "Prawn Watching" is face-paced and has a unusual minor twist in it. The pieces all feature a certain mysterious quality, like a spirit or a Holy Appriration. You can just imagine scenes in your head of slow Romance, or Spirituality.
However, you wont get bored easily, as with 13 tracks, and a whole host of melodies, you'll be coming back for more.
