5.0 out of 5 stars See past the stereotype, 24 July 2005
This review is from: Waking The Fallen (Audio CD)
Nothing can touch this album.
My favourite album of all time.
Featuring two of my favourite songs of all time, Unholy Confessions and I Won't See You Tonight, Parts 1 & 2.
Buy this album. If you're a fan of metal, punk, progressive, hardcore...although non of these categories can remotely define the sheer grand scale of this album. Epic, soaring, roaring, rocking...mind-blowing.
Each of the 12 songs is as memorable and shiver-inducing as the last one. Personal favourites are Unholy Confessions, featuring kick-ass riffs and powerful vocals, interesting lyrics and one of the best swaggers in an anthem. Theres also the 2-part, 14 minute epic, I Won't See You Tonight, the first part of which is their strongest song yet, a sweeping, powerful ballad driven by heart-aching guitar work, a backdrop of violins and piano, and singer M. Shadows beautiful singing at its best. The second part is a heavier, harder hitting song driven by such anger is positively throbs with a heartbeat. Then there's Chapter Four, a Cain and Able-esque tale, haunting opening title track Waking the Fallen...every song on this album is fantastic. I urge you, buy this album. You will be playing it for days on end, singing it to yourself, playing air guitar, and have riffs chugging out your ears.
Go buy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The album of the year...already!, 26 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Silent Alarm [CD + DVD] (Audio CD)
Having discovered this band by accident earlier this year, i couldn't believe my luck at the quality of the song i was hearing. Bloc Party's singles were energetic, original, and most of all incredibly catchy. 'Banquet', 'She's Hearing Voices' and 'Little Thoughts' are among the best indie songs of the fast-emerging new British indie scene, and the most recent release, 'Helicopter' is simply the most mind-blowing, refreshing, scarily brilliant song i have heard in a long time.
Im eagerly anticipating the release of this album and the rest of the great songs sure to be on it- [it is] practically the album 2005 already, and i recommend it for anyone who likes their music fresh, funky and fabulous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless!, 21 Dec. 2004
This review is from: Fantasia [DVD] [1941] (DVD)
Considering the era of it's making, Fantasia is always going to remain one of cinema's most breathtaking spectacles. However as a film it is enjyable for all ages, not only classical music fans! i myself am a typical 15 year old who's favourite bands include Muse, the Pixies and the Cure, yet i'm spellbound by the grand music in this Disney classic. It will appeal to children of all ages, if not for the music but for the magical animation accompanying it. The stories set to each symphony will capture young people because like all classic Disney's they are interesting and fun, and being set to the backdrop of Beethoven and Back merely given them a wider sense of wonder, without taking anything away from the visual element of the film or boring audiences!
Having loved this film since i was young, i would recommend it for Disney fans, young and old!
