5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST!!!!!, 27 Dec 2003
I love this book,if you wanna know anything about the manics this book more or less tell's you,from where they hung around as kid's 'peny fan pond' to the dissapearence of one of the worlds best unknown poets mr 'richard edwards'
It mad me cry,it made me laugh,and got me thinking alot,The manics have to have one of the best told stories in rock music,Its just so intresting to know what these 4 inteligent lad's done as boys here in blackwood,and how the managed to survive here,and grow up to become one of the most meaningful bands to grace this earth.
Some good interview's in this book also,and many fact's about the band that i didnt know,It's also good how the writer 'SIMON PRICE' has actually seen the band many times,and remembers his experience's with the band and seeing them live.
A must buy for manics fans! and people who wanna know more about them,i'd say this is deffinatly the book to buy first!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!, 27 Dec 2003
This review is from: Melvins (Audio CD)
Never seen this before,like 5 song's in one big long song (confusing i know)
But a great album also,Very dark album i thought,and at times made me feel isolated,not that it was a bad thing.
Reminded me of seattle to back in the early days,and just all those great band's doing show's and stuff,but this is a great album,takes you like a few listens to get in to it,but after that 'BOOM' you love it.
I Think they did the one track thing to get the people who dont like noise to tolerate it and make them here it before buzz and co. start banging the songs out,it was a big grower on me,and got me in to noise,and an all round great album!!! get it,sit in a dark room smoking a ciggie,and a beer in the other hand,and put yourself in seattle back in the early day's,It's what i did,and it was damn kool to!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars STILL GOING STRONG, 27 Dec 2003
Another great album from the masters of fuzz,more pop on this album,and even trumpets and stuff to,i hated trumpets before i heard this album :)
GRUNGE? Who cares? grunge died cause of the media years ago!
mudhoney are still making great music,and anyone who say's otherwise need's therapy!
i mean 'SONIC INFUSION' Itself is a masterpiece,not to mention the rest of this 'BEAUTIFUL' album.
MARK,STEVE,GUY & DAN have made another master piece,let's hope we get another one form them,and then they tour 'WALES' :)

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT STUFF,FROM THE FUZZ MASTERS, 27 Dec 2003
This review is from: SUPERFUZZ BIGMUFF (Audio CD)
Hmmm..what can i say? my kinda album,packed full of raw-ness,noise,even some pop in there somewhere to,this album reminds me of the early day's of the 'new scence' which was to become 'GRUNGE'.A more pop-ier band i thought than say green river,but that was kool also,still alot for all 'grunge/noise' fans on this album,Halfway through the album you find yourself thinking..these fuzz pedals are amazing,and i havent heard anyone play a fuzz pedal like this before,its almost like the pedal shouldnt be played that way,but they do it anyway,and a great album it is to,stands up there with the best album of the 90s for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars I HEAR HEAVEN CALLING ME, 27 Dec 2003
This review is from: Pod (Audio CD)
This Album,can be dark in some song's,but for me it's a happy album,it kinda makes me wanna sit in the sun shine and just paint pictures of dead crow's,and for once i have heard a album,that aint to heavy either,i mean heavy is sometimes good,but you know its kinda mellow,and i like that,the breeders have their own kinda sound,and i like alot,kim's vocal's just spit love hearts at you,and kinda incase you in them,it's a very addictive album,after a few listens to it!
but an all round classic album,from a classic band!


5.0 out of 5 stars WORSHIP THIS ALBUM!, 27 Dec 2003
This review is from: Bug (Audio CD)
WOW! this album is (in my opinion) another masterpiece!!!
a band who also helped pave the way for the latter 'grunge' scenc,dinosaur jr have had a big impact on me,i think their music is like no other music,and that j's voice is soooo kool,and he's one hell of a guitar player to,and yes like the guy says above 'freak scene' was the smells like teen spirit of it's day in the early underground day's,but this album no doubt is a great one,It takes you on a journey where you havent been before,it took me there,and im still there. :)
i'd say to all you guy's out there,if you havnt heard this band before,this is the album to start off with.
