5.0 out of 5 stars Great Must - have from the masters, 27 Aug 2000
MCIS is one of the finer works of rock. It's a double CD album, and in every respects could (should?) be two seperate albums.
The first CD is the most immediatly accesible of the two. It contains a good mix of heavy rock (Jellybelly, Zero, Bullet with Butterfly Wings), a couple of beautifully mellow tracks (To Forgive, Cupid de locke, Porcelina) and some great rock tracks (Here is no why, galapogos and my fav Muzzle). Overall this CD has great balace, and most people just love it.
The second CD (titled Twilight to Starlight) is slightly different. Maybe it got overwhelmed by the first CD, but I didn't like this CD until recently, when I gave it a good listening. It is actually very, very, very good. The tracks Bodies, 33, 1979, thru the eyes of ruby, stumbleine and by starlight are all top draw, but the real gem is the last - Farewell and Goodnight. This is a great track, all the band sing on it.. it's really a great farewell track.. If you like the Pumpkins, this album is a must-have. You may not like the second CD at first - but give it time, and you'll realise the beauty of it.
Suggestion #1- Buy Adore if you like the second CD (it's not as lound or passionate as other Pumpkins work, but it's beautiful in other ways).
Suggestion #2 - If you havent got it yet, get Siamese Dream, you _won't_ regret it...

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok.. but too short, 3 April 2000
This review is from: Trailer (Audio CD)
This is an okay album. 2 1/2 stars. It's better than "Nu-Clear Sounds" (which is a rank 0 stars), but not quite as good as "1977" (5-star).
The best songs are "Jack Names the Planet" and "Petrol ".
Sadly the album suffers from being to flippin' short! It's only about 30mins long :-( If only the lads had added a couple of extra songs.
Avoid if your not an Ash fan, or hate loud & thrashy head-banging rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only album to make me cry, 3 April 2000
This is one of the best "emotional" soft-rock albums I've heard. It's never been far from my CD player since it was recommended my by a friend five years ago.
Outstanding tracks are "Omaha", "Anna Begins" and "Sullivan Street".
It's the only album which has ever made my cry, so much is it's beauty. Should be a fixture in everyone's record collection.
Fits in quite nicely with Gomez's "Liquid Skin", Radiohead's "The Bends" / "OK Computer" and some of the Smashing Pumpkins quieter work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece!, 3 April 2000
This review is from: The Doors (Audio CD)
The Door's self titled album is a masterpiece of rock.
Starting with the classic "Break on through", the albums twists through with the great swinging "20th Centuary Fox", the interesting and novel "Alabama Song", to the other classic title, "Light my Fire". The album builds up to a climax with "End of the Night", before hitting the peake of brilliance - the final song, "The End".
"The End" is definatly the pinnicle of the album. I cannot find the words to describe the sheer brilliance this song - so I suggest that you buy this album and listen to it yourselves!
