Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide: The Complete, Easy-To&hellip by Robert M, Jr. Parker

1.0 out of 5 stars Pointless points, 24 Oct 2008
The 7. edition of Parkers Wine buyer's guide has lost all of it's meaning.
The wines are only rated by points, and there are no tasting notes, no "hedonistic Parker writing" to each wine, which is essential when choosing wines for buying and ageing. You can't see the costs of the wines either, only the pricerange of the winery, which of course doesn't say anything regarding the specific wine.
The wine guide, which used to be a detailed positive list of wines to buy, is now a general description of the wineareas with an ultra short presentation of the winery.

Wine enthusiasts should still buy Robert Parkers Wine Advocate, where the tasting notes are available, but if you… Read more

I'm a big DM fan, so actually it's very hard for me to give this critical review, but I have to say it:

Volumen 2 is an updated version of Björk's greatest musicvideos "Volumen" from 1999.
It is almost needless to say, that these are some of the best, most innovative videos ever made. Björk is always able to find and collaborate with groundbreaking artists (not only directors as but remixers, producers etc. as well)
Take for instance the "All is full of love" video - Chris Cunningham have created a modern classic. Even some of my friends (who hates Björk!!!) admits, that this musicvideo is the best they've ever seen.
Until now "Alarm call" has only been available on VHS or on a special japanese 2 dvd edition of Volumen.
The tracklist is as follows:
