5.0 out of 5 stars the perfect body of music, 6 Sept. 2008
This review is from: In Rainbows (Audio CD)
this album is amazing it has stunning production and is beautifully layered music that you can't stop listening to. anyone who simply puts this on in the background is doing it an injustice. lock yourself in a room and put this album on nice and loud and just listen. the music simple absorbs and grabs you, the progression from song to song means the album feels like one cohesive body of work but is defiantly not "samey". some people say this album is radiohead reconnecting with there human side and you can see why in the way it grabs your head and heart it simply sucks you in and drags you away to a musical fantasy, if you ever need a way to disconnect from real life, in rainbow is the answer.

4.0 out of 5 stars the brain, 5 Sept. 2008
a very good introduction in terms of getting you interested and it is fairly easy to understand. for someone with no previous knowledge of any biology it might seem a bit heavy but as long as you concentrate in the harder places it's not a problem. obviously it doesn't give a complete overview and some areas have to much or too little focus but it is an interesting and enthusiastic introduction which is a good way to decide if you are really interested in this kind of stuff, and if you are it points you in the right direction well with a further reading list. so if you have always wondered about how your brain and neuronal sensory and motor systems work this give you a good way to ease into the area, and will take you at most a two evenings to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars booooooooooooooosssssssssssssssssshhhhhhhhhh!!!!, 5 Sept. 2008
if you are a booshist you'll love this, pure cretive genius. this is similar in places to the first tv series interms of plot and there are a fair few bits that are identical, but it's still a joy to sit and listen to the boosh. just buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Circular Arguments and Lacking any Philosophical justification, 3 Sept. 2008
i read this book because i was told i would have the pleasure of interview the author for some tv thingy. in all honesty i foud it amazingly irritating, reading and talking to him. his arguments are basically, "this is one solution to all the questions i have, there are others but i like my one". prety much he "has faith". he dismisses selfish gene theory as a means of explaining human nature, despite knowing very little about it at all, and then uses God to explain things such as altrusim which any 16 school boy could explain using the evolutionanry theory if they had a good read around. He also miss uses the anthropic principle, and then later says the ressurection is true because why else whould such a story last so long apart from it being true....unbelivable! I have read his books on physics which are seriously good but he lacks any philsophical rigour, scientist and theologians should shut up about God's existance and leave it to the educated philosophers and that is coming from a scientist.

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning, 3 Sept. 2008
coldplay couldn't get bigger so they just got better instead. this is an amazing album, it seemed impossible for coldplay to write an album better than X and Y but the least you can say is it's as good as.
