I have since heard all their other albums all are very good to brilliant but Groovin is a different matter altogether; it hyappens to be the best or certainly one of the best albums ever made : moving, soulful, arragements perfect, and their voices Brrrrr! nuff said buy it....... thats an order!!

5.0 out of 5 stars the devil rides up and away, 26 April 2010
This review is from: Sacrifice (Audio CD)
if andrew lloyd webber wrote a musical about satanists it would sound a bit like this and throughout the album there are places to squirm . But this is due to its age and the period it was created in, there are some wonderful light jazzy moments which relieve the satanic revelling and these are surprisingly effective thirty years on . Some have menace and joy in equal measure as come to the sabbat , in ancient days et al. if satanism is to be at all alluring it has to express an ineffable desire for the supernatural and this album does just that 5 stars !

5.0 out of 5 stars heart over technique, 31 Dec. 2008
I recently purchased this collection of stories, never having heard of walter m miller. I was transported back to my youth when I had read A.E Van Vogt. The excitement the thrills but above all the the heart and compassion at the centre of these stories. The boy travelling to the future to find a cure for his disease..... a simple yet original idea, but it is the characters so movingly adumbrated which ultimately turns this story from an average one to a great one. All these stories possess a very real and immediate quality as well as having great science fiction ideas ; dark benediction is probably the best short story I have Read, enjoy.
