Edition: Paperback
Price: £24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastically Philisophical and Fun, Just Like the Show!, 19 Jan. 2015
I've been watching the show since the very, very early days and what started as a thirst for knowledge soon developed into a love for Dave & Herb's Philisophical ways, of which the book is.

Golden nuggets throughout, fun and gripping. Fantastic book.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1980's Heavy Metal at it's best, 3 Aug. 2011
I adore albums like "Blizzard of Oz". "Member of band leaves, swears to be better than previous band", granted many of them have failed, but David Lee Roth did a great job, and so did Ozzy.

Blizzard of Oz can be held responsible for melodic guitar solos, and there is no bad air with that, Ozzy helped push one of the greatest talents the world has seen to the limelight, and along with the rest of the band, helped to make an album full of great, fist pumping, heavy metal magic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction to Toto, 3 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Toto Iv (Audio CD)
Personally, Toto IV is my favourite Toto record, and feel that if ever you were to recommend a Toto record for people to discover the band, this would be the one. It has the incredibly popular "Africa" and "Rosanna", whilst still displaying the awesome musicianship and songwriting of the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Album, 3 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Dog Eat Dog (Audio CD)
I never, ever, categorize this record as a "Joni Mitchell" record, as many people will, as that's how comparisons are made. Joni Mitchell proved throughout her career just how versatile she is, and if you make a comparison between this record, and something like "Blue", you are being so irrelevant.

Dog Eat Dog is a terrific album, with stunning soundscapes, lush arrangements, and truly mesmerizing vocals and songwriting from Joni, as expected.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album - Just shy of 5*s, 3 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Mr. Big (Audio CD)
Mr. Big is a great album, it really is, with fan favourites and concert staples such as "Addicted to that Rush" and "Rock 'n' Roll Over" being featured on the record, there is a degree of filler, and unless you're an appreciator of finger dexterity (of which I am!), you'll much prefer "Lean Into It". Still a great record to own, mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Preserve your hearing!, 3 Aug. 2011
I bought these Ear Muffs to use when practicing with the band, to ensure that hearing loss is either prevented completely, or at least significantly slowed down. They work a great job, and attenuate superbly. I use them combined with a set of foam ear plugs to be extra safe, and even without the ear plugs, I feel protected and the mix is just as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Killer - No Filler, 3 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Lean Into It (Audio CD)
Mr. Big are one of the very few supergroups that ever managed to pull it off successfully, and with "Lean Into It", it is very much all killer, no filler. The Debut album, although great in every respect, did have filler, and most of the filler was over the top shred virtuosity. Granted, it's great to hear the players do it, but "Lean Into It" has the songs, the melodies and the virtuosity all shoved into one package.

Brilliant record.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4king Brilliant, 3 Aug. 2011
I absolutely adore this album. All you need to do is flip it over and see that it was produced by no other than Robert John "Mutt" Lange, the legendary producer responsible for the tastiest sounding AOR ever heard.

In typical Mutt Lange fashion, every single song is a hit, and I would recommend this record to any AOR fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Pop album of 2011?, 22 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Born This Way (Audio CD)
I bought Fame & Fame Monster upon release and loved both, though there was quite a lot of filler, they were still brilliant, and anticipated Born This Way greatly. I feel that it's a much better record than her first attempt, more slick and with catchier songs even, though I still feel like there's something missing. The record is very over compressed, and sounds distorted in many places, but the songs make up for it. I feel her third album is going to be THE record for her, a complete 5 star record, perhaps she should stick with Mutt Lange for the whole of the third, as he absolutely killed it on this record.

5.0 out of 5 stars Steely Dan's brilliant finale, 24 July 2010
This review is from: Gaucho (Audio CD)
"Gaucho" is the last album Steely Dan made before Donald Fagen launched a solo career, which proved he was largely responsible for everything "Dan" related; Steely Dan did return in the millenium.

Gaucho is a brilliant record and brings a whole new dynamic to the band. I found that from Can't Buy a Thrill (The First Steely Dan record), through to Gaucho, the band were constantly refining their sound, and from what started as busy, tight rock n roll, slowly started to slow down, and become much more sparse.

Gaucho is very minimalistic in comparison to the other records, but just as brilliant. Third World Man is one of the best songs ever written, in my opinion.
