Miracle Mile [DVD] [1989] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Miracle Mile [DVD] [1989] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

4.0 out of 5 stars 80s Gem, 11 July 2012
There are few cult classics that remain a hidden secret but i think Miracle Mile has achieved the status to remain relatively unknown whilst being a total cult classic. Miracle Mile tells the tale of two lovers, on the beginning of their journey of falling in love they are tested by the events of a phone call that changes their lives considerably. Theres so much to love about this film, the Tangerine Dream film score is one of them but the idea that when society is pressed with a fight or flight situation what actually happens. Having said that I did live in LA for a time and a Saturday evening can resemble an apocalyptic state of affairs at the best of times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soundtrack to my life, 5 July 2012
There isn't an album that comes close to how energy filled and astronimical this album this. 'Nightrain' is one of the best openings ever and from-there-on-in you are on a energy fueled journey of sex, drugs, booze and pure hedonism. I think the magic of the album comes down to the fact that G n' R managed to pull this album together despite the drugs and alcohol problems, nowadays bands are marched into rehab if they sip one too many Red Stripes. I can still pick up Appetite for Destruction and feel like its so fresh that it could have been made yesterday. A sunset strip generation caught up in one phenomenal album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Indies Finest Band, 5 July 2012
This review is from: Tellin' Stories (Audio CD)
The Charlatans have always remained the quieter of the 90s bands next to the likes of Oasis, in a way thats what makes me love them more as you get a sense that you are getting a band thats still a well kept secret in terms of how underrated they are.
Tellin' Stories is a mind-blowing album, its an album that given its age I can still play now and it feels as fresh as yesterday, its utterly engaging and remains in my top 5 albums of all time. From 'You're a big girl now' to 'Tellin' Stories' every song seems so well thought-out and a gigantic step forward for band that unlike Oasis have stood the test of time.
