4.0 out of 5 stars One for the devoted fans and hard-working students of logic, 9 May 2004
This review is from: Logic (Paperback)
This old-fashioned book is a more formal look at Logic, and its transcription into symbols and constituents in order to evaluate the truth and validity of paragraphs. Things get pretty messy towards the end, so avoid this if you're going for a lateral thinking type approach to the area.
This is a book to inform and educate, and does so very clearly, with simple excercises to do throughout (answers in the back), and plenty of info is given in each chapter - there's no dull waffle, all vital stuff for the next chapters.
Good luck with this taxing but effective look into the study of Logic.

5.0 out of 5 stars DJ Shadow deserves credit for this amazing album, 9 May 2004
This review is from: The Private Press (Audio CD)
An amazing crossbreed album, with a huge variety of different sounds - some sound like the Avalanches gone psycho, others are eerily chilled out. If you are a fan of UNKLE, Beastie boys, samples and originality theres plenty of new musical corridors opened up by this great CD. Don't be put off by one of the tracks having been destroyed by an incredibly random and retarded TV ad, theres still plenty to enjoy on this masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars chilled out psychotic melodies try to be deep. And succeed., 16 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Never, Never, Land (Audio CD)
Hmm... An absolutely excellent listen, providing you're up for slightly deep sounding words every 5 tracks, and some music verging on the suicidal side of Moby's private collection.
However, this is a perfect CD, almost a mood changer, but it's best to be in the mood for it.
Otherwise you may end up on the floor crosseyed crying like a little girl with a grazed knee.
Buy it. But not at full price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes mate, 16 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Popular (Audio CD)
a powerful track, fed up with school life and taking a lateral look at the meaning of it all. Take a listen to this amazing lyrical rollercoaster, cynically taking apart all that educational life stands for.
But don't worry - this isn't grunge. Its a lighthearted nit-pick, with fast talking, witty ideas and a catchy tune. Just don't play it too often, it's a gem and might give you high blood pressure.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome album - welcome the new Bobby M!, 16 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Burn To Shine (Audio CD)
Ben Harper isn't a name you will have heard if you're a commercial pop music addict - unless you've heard of the name of the father in "My Family" (different Ben guys), he won't sound familiar at all.
But His blend of acoustic, reggae, blues, rock and gospel tracks is impressive. He moves from track to track on "Burn to Shine" changing style like Kylie's life in fast forward, except mature from beginning to end. All of the tracks are powerful and, lets be honest, if you're looking for something which you aren't going to hear overplayed non-stop by radio/TV, give Ben Harper a try. (If you're less diverse in your music taste, I'd start with "Diamonds on the Inside")
Go on, broaden your horizons - just because he's shyed away from the MTV planet, doesn't mean he isn't the best artist ever (and that includes Salvador Dali)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if you're a fan, 14 Mar. 2003
This review is from: Use Your Fingers (Audio CD)
On most peoples standards, this is a rubbish album. But if you're a big fan of the beastie boys style of white trash rap, and proudly own the BHGs newer two albums, this is definetly worth a look. Being their first album, consists of samples mainly, and the same old witty lyrics and jumpy old-skool mess around pace.
Do not buy if your taste in music is not wide and you know you like indie bands or pop hiphop beats of today.
NB: this album was made when the BHG consisted of Jimmy and Lupus. The other 3 guys left before O.F.B.C or H.for B. was made, so Use your fingers has a very different - less talented, less commercial - feel to it to start with.
