5.0 out of 5 stars The boys are back in town...., 4 Mar 2007
I was a massive Police fan as a teenager,must've driven my poor parents mad going on and on about them.

Have all their work on good old records so treated myself to this album on cd the other day.

Loved it then and what do you know,adore it now.

It really flows and illustrates what a musically tight band they were-"Message in a bottle","Bed's too big..","Bring on the night" still stand out.And have to agree with previous reviewer about "Does everyone stare"-Stewart should have written more like this.

If you love The Killers,Orson, The Feeling, buy this coz the boys are back in town!

5.0 out of 5 stars "So you wanna be a rock and roll star...", 29 Oct 2006
Rock biographies are not known for their literary excellence.Usually ghost written they are often vain and self absorbed and good only for the bargain buckets.
This then is a remarkable achievement.In "One train later" Andy Summers tells the tale of a struggling musician with such verve and clarity that you are willing him to be the success he ultimately was.
As a teenager I was a huge Police fan and Summers was my favourite-even then he appeared to be taking the fame with humour and good grace.
The highs and lows are well documented, the madness of the 60's highly evocative but it is the story of The Police which will touch readers of any generation.
An astonishingly well written book and recommended to anyone who thinks they might want to be in a band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Startling televison, 30 Aug 2006
I can only agree with the other reviewers, this is a wonderful series.I was hooked from the start and couldn't wait for each episode.Lesley Sharp is sensational as the troubled Alison, with fine support from the always excellent Andrew Lincoln.

A serious and startling view of the world of the paranormal-well done itv.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars "You can do nothing against the Master..", 10 July 2006
About time too! My ancient video copy has been threatening to snap so the news that "Salem's Lot" has a dvd release is just great.

Based on the novel by Stephen King this is truly frightening,a real white knuckle ride.It has Vampires who float through the air,sinister newcomers to a once cosy village,petrified priests and neighbours who rise from the dead!

David Soul is fabulously terrified as the writer who returns to his childhood home and the great James Mason looks classy and creepy.

Buy this, grab a pizza,draw the curtains....and watch out for The Master!

5.0 out of 5 stars A thing of beauty is a joy forever.., 6 July 2006
Have to agree with everyone here.This is possibly the brightest,most original comedy of the last 20 years, seriously.It ranks alongside "The Young Ones", "The Day today","Alan Partridge" and early Reeves and Mortimer.Matthew, please bring it back!
