Holy Magick / We Put Our Magick On You
Holy Magick / We Put Our Magick On You
Price: 12.45

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Graham at his best, 26 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty average by Bond's standards. 'Holy Magick' is pretty dull. Some decent playing in parts I suppose. 'We Put' has some average songs and some ropey lyrics. 12 Gates is a far inferior version to the Airforce one.

I much prefer 'Two Heads' or 'Law'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful film, 17 Jan 2014
This review is from: About Schmidt [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
Pulled out the DVD and watched this movie once again. It certainly is bleak in places, but plenty of humour along the way.

Basically its the road trip of a sad lonely man. But his journey self discovery ends with, I think, someone who finally understands the meaning of life. Love, caring and having fun. Not money or the corporate world.

Needless to say Nicholson gives a terrific performance as does the supporting cast.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice Collection, 26 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carry On (Audio CD)
When CSN are good they are very good indeed. Contains all of the songs you would expect, (though a few have different mixes/versions). Some of the songs from later albums are surprisingly good.

In addition some solo stuff and a few unreleased songs.

Agree with another reviewer, Nash's songs sound better now than they did at the time.

I felt exhausted after watching this!

Great songs, great performances and so much energy!

Highlight is probably the Rainbow footage?

5.0 out of 5 stars Stills Best Album?, 26 Aug 2013

This review is from: Manassas (Audio CD)
A group of very talented musicians enjoying themselves with a set of (mainly) top notch songs.

Sounds like it was recorded live in the studio which gives it a real band feel.

1.0 out of 5 stars cheating ELO members out of royalties?, 13 Oct 2012
Interesting that no-one has picked up on the word royalties. As Lynne has removed all the original musicians parts they will no longer get any royalties for their performances.

What a nice thing to do to the guys who contributed over the years and came up with musical ideas which added to the songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A seriously impressive album, 13 Nov 2010
This review is from: Omega Point (MP3 Download)
This is quite brilliant from beginning to end.

Firstly I am not a SOD fanatic. Has to be said though, that when they are good, they are indeed very good and Brandon always sings with terrific intensity. But this album may just be a career best.

The production is ace with the band bringing something special to the party. Thumping drums, riffs, pumping bass and Kirk is on top form. In short, it kicks butt.

The songs are powerful, catchy with smart lyrics. Seems unfair to pick any out as I love 'em all, but 'Undertow', 'Suicide God' and 'Kalashnikov' are fabulous songs.

Like I said, possibly a career best.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Boring, 5 Sep 2010
Now we all love a boozy druggy rock star dont we? Whereas Iggy, Moon, Morrison Sid etc had some interesting tales to tell or some interesting stories, Slash does not.

Basically he takes a lot of drugs, enjoys shooting up, getting high, getting wasted, wetting himself, cheating on his girlfriends and then starting it over again. That is basically 90% of the book.

He actually comes across as a hypocrite as well. Moaning about bandmates being unable to function due to their drug habits, whilst clearly neither could he. Moaning they couldnt get clean, whilst neither could he.

One thing that made me laugh was finding out that his love of leather trousers was basically because it allowed him to wet himself without worrying about having to get a new pair on. How charming.

Pretty dull repetitive stuff. Good guitar player mind!
