My Father My King
My Father My King

5.0 out of 5 stars 20:21!!!!!!!!!, 21 Feb. 2002
This review is from: My Father My King (Audio CD)
wow..this record is amazing..having seen it played live i decided to go and buy as good as the live version..
it starts off quietly...with a nice tune then builds up slowly with the listener getting entangled in the simple melody..then hits you!!
the sound yous fills everything from top to bottom, in oneside to the other.
the guitars at first are virually non existant..but once stuart and they ladz get into it they can make a complete wall of noise but with style. make no mistake, this is not a quiet record.
what you have is a masterpiece of musical noise with the addition of a religious theme...but it is not a religious
the music sours up then drops down almost completely stopping at one point..but it again builds up.
Mogwai have gone for the quiet and then loud approach here..but with a twist...the last 6ish minutes is just complete ravages your brain...simply the entire track breaks down into reverb and distortion with some added is one of those tracks which makes you want to turn up the volume as loud as it can go and just sit there....but the ludest it can go just isnt loud enough
this is an amazing track form a band i have just got into...this record will tale you on a journy of peacefulness to hedmess decomposion...
buy it..and feel it.

5.0 out of 5 stars freaks yes, freaky yes, for freaks no, 9 May 2001
This review is from: Freaks [VINYL] (Vinyl)
well, i bought this a LONG time ago and i still listen to it. it is a masterpiece of work. it is so much darker than all their other stuff (even darker than this is hardcore) but dont let that put you off. it wil take two or three listens to get into thisa but do not be afraid as the sheer fact that it is different makes it amazing. Take the first song (fairground), when i first heard this i was gobshaked, it is a very funny/freaky song, with the now sadly departed russel senior on vocals with his evil laugh (and jarvis in the background). oh dont belive me, just but this and listen and love you will not regret it

5.0 out of 5 stars A witty and gueninly funny masterpiece, 1 Feb. 2001
This review is from: Laptop of the Gods (Paperback)
Laptop of the gods is a brilliant book. It has all the humour of Terry Pratchett with the added bit of naughtiness. It is a great take on the milenium bug. I found the characters really good,Cupid really did seem to be a young god of love and Jupiter is always the dominent god. The dialouge is easy to read and get into, and the way which the computer dialouge goes on is really well done. The way of life portraid in laptop of the gods is one of pleasure and it really does seem like all the gods are having a good time, until the millenium comes that is....
Overall i think this is a brilliant read whitch will appeal to anyone who enyoys fantasy stories of any kind.
