Gold Dust ~ Tori Amos

There are no new tracks on this album - they are all remakes of songs from Tori's previous albums, and frankly, most of the originals sounded better (songs such as Cloud on My Tongue, Winter and Snow Cherries from France already had classical scores to them, and I just found them more emotionally powerful the first time around)
I did go and see Tori live this month when she was touring in London with the Metropole orchestra, and it was a beautiful concert - Tori's voice was very clear, and the strings complimented her vocals and piano playing perfectly. The songs sounded much better live than they do on this record, because in concert, the orchestra gave unique intros to each song, and… Read more

Batman & Mr Freeze: Subzero [DVD] [1997] [Region 1&hellip <b>DVD</b> ~ Kevin Conroy
I ordered this DVD from the US, but it works just fine on my region 2 DVD player, so good news for UK fans who feel like they're missing out!

So anyway, this movie is not quite as dark and gripping as Mask of the Phantasm, but it's still a good, lively Batman romp that stays true to the characters.

We finally catch up with Mr. Freeze, who has been living a peaceful existence in an ice cave in the Antarctic where his wife Nora has been preserved until a cure becomes available for her illness. However, Nora's condition takes a turn for the worse when a submarine smashes through the cave, disturbing her treatment. Freeze takes revenge on the crew, before heading back to… Read more
