5.0 out of 5 stars Best come back CD....., 3 April 2005
I have been waiting for a year for this album and it hasn't disapointed. Being a huge QOSTA fan I wasn't sure what Nicks departure would mean for the really heavy songs after listening to Josh's Desert Sessions which was much more melow in style. But all of the tracks are absolutely brilliant with catchy riffs and amazing drumming. Its is definately less heavy without Nick's screaming lyrics but there are still really excellent rock tracks to be had. Burn The Witch, Little Sister and Something's In the Wolf are my personal fave tracks.

The gardening section is informative too but mainly focuses on maintaining garden tools and not too much on landscaping issues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 27 Nov 2002
I read this book some years ago, yet can still remember the story as if I read it yesterday. The story, set in the deep south is an inspiring tale written in the form of letters. The books describes the experiences of a black girl who has everything from a young age taken away or destroyed and is left with no faith in life, until she meets a singer who is the opposite of her. I was strangely compelled to find out whether she ever fights against the oppression of men and white society, and was deeply affected by the tale that I still remember it ten years later.
If you have seen the film version of this book I would still advise reading it as it is Walkers best book to date and should… Read more
