5.0 out of 5 stars Heavy metal album of the year, 30 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Impermanent Resonance (Audio CD)
This album is a must buy for anyone who loves heavy metal or electric guitars. Better and more solid than the previous two Labrie's solo albums (both being superb), Labrie is in a great form and the guitars are pure bliss - definitely some of the best sounding shreds you will ever listen to, great heavy riffs with varied rhythm in total precision with the drums. The rest of the band with Labrie at the front are at the top of their game - being a huge Dream Theater fan I ended up liking this album a lot more than the DT's last one, intensely great music... The trash metal roars which (IMHO) were slightly disturbing on Labrie's previous album got tuned to minimum while the guitars deliver rhythms and sound which stick in memory. Great album, highly recommended 5 star heavy listening with perfect sound. Can't wait for the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing read, 21 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 11.22.63 (Paperback)
I have been a fan of Stephen King for over 20 years and with great admiration of his early work, Dark Tower series and incredible short stories / novella collections I have found some of his more recent novels not as thrilling as the early works. This book is a shining exception which no fan of his (or any other avid reader) should miss - it is one of the most captivating books I have ever read with a great idea, sleek writing style and scenes balancing love and warmth with powerful chills and thrills.

More of a smart thriller than horror killfest the story kept me captivated to the point I neglected everything else and couldn't put the book down. I am not going into the story to keep the surprises for the readers, the basic premise is obvious from the title but it is the form and the ideas it evolves around - time travel has always been a fascinating subject and in the light of the date above Stephen has created one of his most original and superb quality reads ever.

Highly recommended five star novel - not one of the shortest ones but packing enough juice to remind all of us that Stephen is still one of the greatest masters of the written word. 100% pure King, it is Back To The Future / Dead Zone cocktail with a punch and kick to make you think about it even when you are not reading.
