Brick is one of my favourite films of recent years.

Joseph-Gordon Levitt is brilliant as Brendan Frye, the high-school loner searching for answers to his ex-girlfriends disapearance.

With a fantastic script inspired by the novels of Dashiell Hammett, it's a truly unique film with a distinctive style.

Like Donnie Darko the DVD will probably see the film win more fans that it's theatrical release did, at least, that's what it deserves.

Datarock's album is, from start to finish, quite brilliant and whilst they remain relatively unknown in the UK it won't be long before they explode.
I predict big things.

Good news! It does. Whilst serving up a different style of house, a more electro-tech, feel it's just as brilliant as the first album. As with Super Discount, none of the tracks stand out as huge "anthems" but 'Fast Track' with it's driving bass-guitar riff and shifting tempo is definetly aimed at the dancefloor as are 'Limewire' and 'Overnet'.
Not the french filtered disco of the first volume, but very much "finger-on-the-pulse" house with a… Read more
