Everytime Mr Sabbagh says "Right, get your textbooks out and...", the entire class gives off a collective moan.

Some textbooks are more like a child's picture books. I'm the first one to admit that these kind of textbooks are darned brilliant. This however, should be called a "wall-of-text book". I don't care how many letters this woman has after her name (P.M.Heathcote B.S.c(Hons), M.S.c), she doesn't seem to understand the mind of a 16/17/18 year old A-Level student, bored out of his/her mind in a lesson about token passing.

(By the way, in case you want to know whether this review is relevant to you, my favourite artists include The Chemical Brothers, Radiohead, Bonobo, REM, Queens of the Stone Age, Gorillaz etc...)

I picked up on UNKLE after hearing their remix of QOTSA's No-one Knows on the soundtrack for SSX3 (and anyone that's played the game could tell you it's nigh-on impossible to listen to music in it!). UNKLE are definitely one of the best band of their genre - which is pretty much every genre you could think of. This is electronica (persons and machinery), punk (restless), rock (burn my shadow), dance (chemistry), ambient (twilight), pop (mayday), orchestral (when things explode)… Read more
