5.0 out of 5 stars Hot damn!, 11 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great fun!
Never mind the storylines (or storyline, in the case of Coffy and Foxy Brown, they're clones, not twins).
Just sit back, grab some pop corn and enjoy Pam Grier talking that jive, toting those guns, bringing justice to all and showing some skin in the process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, 1 Sept. 2009
This is the best compilation of Brazilian music I know.
Especially the first disc, with a lot of classic tunes, often in surprising versions.
The tunes are soulful without being corny.

Price: £10.39

2.0 out of 5 stars Brazilika: Scraping deep inside the barrel, 15 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Brazilika (Audio CD)
As a big fan of the two previous 'in Brazil' outings (especially the old gems) I was very much looking forward to this album. Alas, I am very dissapointed with this one. What can I say? A lot of it just sounds bland. You'd expect to hear a few of these tunes on a cruise with elderly citizens, not on a GP album. I had a similar experience recently inviting some of my friends to dance to 'the best DJ on earth imo' and ended up hanging out around the bar, too damn loungy.

Near the end (the more dance oriented bit) the album becomes a bit better. So if you consider buying individual tracks, that's where to look. All in all, though, I'd have to give it thumbs down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravissimo, 4 July 2009
This review is from: Music (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
This is scratching me right where I itch. I'd been dabbling with keyboards and harmonica's for a while, but never got round to taking a real course to learn how to read notes.

At the core of the game is a lesson mode, which is well organized. It starts with some very basic concepts (pitch, tempo) but gradually becomes more challenging. I'm not an expert, but I guess by the end of it you should be able to read most sheet music (at least for piano, using notes instead of letters).

Linked to the lessons are tests, where you can win points. You later use these points to buy tabs to 65 songs. Here you get a tab in the upper screen and play the song on a little keyboard on the lower screen (one note at a time). Songs start with 'Twinkle twinkle little star' up to 'Return march from Aida'.

You can later listen to your performance, even compare it to how it should have sounded. Plus, this practice mode is pretty flexible: you can just play around with the keyboard at will, without following the tab.

A few nice extra's include: a chord scheme for easy reference (piano and guitar), fun games, and glossary.

The only minus it'd get from me is for the tacky sounding music in the menus, but that's all.

Otherwise: a great and fun way of learning how to read music.
