4.0 out of 5 stars Last of the Magic Bands but still cuts the mustard, 17 Feb. 2001
This album gives us a reminder of how powerful all the Beefheart Magic bands were. Recorded at the end of his recording career, the band swing effortlessly from the Good Captain's very first album Safe as Milk (Abba Zaba) to much later stuff. Makes your hair stand on end!! If only he'd got a decent recording contract perhaps he'd be delivering albums to this day! Still, his talent isn't wasted - his paintings are something else

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning vocal and lyrical qualities abound on this album, 16 Feb. 2001
This review is from: All This Useless Beauty (Audio CD)
Even though EC trips through many styles here, you get the feeling that he is a man totally at ease with himself both as a writer and singer. The lyrical barbs and vicious wit that he displays on virtually every song confirms a writer at the peak of his form. Listen to his superlative vocal on the title track to find a singer brimming with confidence in his ability. Everyone should have a copy!

5.0 out of 5 stars From now on everything changes, 13 Dec. 2000
This review is from: Space Is The Place (Audio CD)
One cannot for one second imagine what it must have been like to have been Sun Ra - so called man of Saturn. Writer, musician of well over 100 albums, mostly obscure, all good he stood out like a shaft of gold when all around was dark. His fascination with Egyptology and space started a long time before this superb album, but it is the culmination of fantastic writing, superlative playing by a band of whom most members stayed for incredibly long periods to produce a totally other-worldly album. Just great - A huge infuence on Captain Beefheart and all left field musicians, I should fancy

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent in places, barrel scraping in others, 13 Dec. 2000
This review is from: Greatest Punk Album (Audio CD)
There are over 100 tracks featuring innovative punk artistes as diverse as Tom Robinson and Sex Pistols to 2nd division stuff such as 999 (good though the track is) to ultimately worthless throwaway tracks by bandwagon jumpers. Along the way some real eccentricity eg Spizz. A good nostalgia trip for those people who went to see the majority of these bands in the late 70's. I saw a lot in London and Margate and for sheer energy and dynamism they cannot be beaten. I remember them fondly.
