5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best books I've ever read. I went into it expecting a gently comedic adventure with fish-out-of-water humour. What I got was an incisive, satirical, hugely intelligent book that lambasts and lampoons social ills that are just as relevant today as they were in Twain's time, or Arthur's. If you ever wanted to turn someone atheist, liberal, or just that little more open-minded, this would be one of the best ways to do it, as Twain covers the subjects of human rights, religion, political power, sensible economics and human endeavour with admirable clarity and excellent vignettes that effectively act as fables.

Lovely shoes, swift delivery. Very comfortable and only needed to add insoles to them because I work 14 hour shifts on my feet.

One of my favourite new watches. Fairly small face and slimmer strap than I was expecting, but very classy and masculine all the same. Fairly easy to read except in poor light, though the glowing hands do help if you're in proper darkness.

Exactly as I expected it to be, these are very solid headphones. Pleasantly portable and lightweight, slick-looking and the charge lasts a good long while. My only small complaint would be the oversensitive controls on the headphones themselves, but I tend to control my devices manually anyway.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Downfall of Britney, 11 May 2009
This review is from: Circus (Audio CD)
Alas, Ms Spears has proved she has finally run out of juice. I can't comprehend the rave reviews from people on this site. Every song shows almost no sense of musical nouse or creativity. Her vocals are tired, robotic, and almost spoken rather than sung. The music relies far more on synthesised elements than even her past hits have. And the lyrics? Not that you listen to Britney for expertly-crafted pieces of poetry, but it's now descended into being pure lazy, repetitive rubbish. Having to repeat the title word of the song several times per verse as a chorus doesn't make for good listening, nor does resorting to using the out-of-place phrase "ha ha he he ha ha ho" as an end-of-verse line show inspired use of words.

Just...don't bother. Please. Go and buy Lady Gaga's album if you really need an electro-tinged pop record. Even Miley Cyrus has more energy nowadays.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Grief..., 19 Jan. 2005
Not only is this a fantastically well-written, informative and exceptionally useful book, but it also provides one of the best compilations of anti-vegetarian (or rather, pro-omnivorism) arguments I've ever come across, which really makes me feel justified in my eating of meat (though he is very much concerned with animal welfare, and urges us to use only trusted butchers or farmers that you know provide free-range, "animal-friendly" meat).
10 out of 10...goes perfectly with Atlas Of Wine as a gourmet gift!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't steal this album, it's worth every penny (minus 36p), 2 May 2003

This review is from: Steal This Album! (Audio CD)
As many reviewers have said before me, this album is splendid, though not a great "initiation" album for non-fans. Almost every track is brilliant or at least holds some merit. Allow me to provide you all with a track by track reference to the CD!
1) Chic'n'Stu - A clever pun of a title, this anti-advertising song opens the CD well witha fast paced, unique metal track.
2) Innervision - Brilliant. Not only is Serj's unique choral-like voice displayed, but some damn good guitar riffs too. This is very much in the vein of the Toxicity album
3) Bubbles - A frantic, almost mental collection various lyrics and background noises and a damn catchy chorus (not to mention the odd background noises provided by what sounds like a small Mexican falling down a cliff).
4) Boom - Politically-charged track with a heavy, deep message against the self expedient nature of our Western governments. The last lines "4,000 hungry children die needless per hour, the bottom line is money nobody gives a f***" are spot on.
5)Nuguns - My fave track. Great instrumental, catchy chorus, deep message about child abuse/sex slavery (from what I can tell) and a wonderful Armenian mandolin solo 1.32 minutes in!
6)ADD -A dramatic, but not greatly impressive, drum-heavy rock track.
7)Mr Jack - Starts off wonderfully jazzy and laid back, with one of the most dramatic last seconds of ANY song I've heard ("Put your hands up, get out of the car!...")
8) So damn catchy. And just try to work out what Serj is saying! It's difficult, but it makes sense eventually.
9)36 - A pointless, rubbish time-filler. Not even 36 secs long like you'd expect.
10)Pictures - Unimpressive Jet Pilot-esque song with cool vocals and mini trumpet fanfare from Daron.
11)Highway Song - Catchy, but not greatly memorable.
12) F the System - Brilliant anti-establishment ravings. Nigh-on incomprehensible but damn amusing and catchy.
13)Ego Brain - The new aerials. Need I say more?
14)Thetawaves - Eh? How does it go again? Not a great track.
15)Roulette - A wonderful harmonic duet with acoustic guitars. Daron goes a tiny bit off key at times, but this hardly spoils the song.
16)Streamline - My new favourite. You'll want to pump this up to full volume and wail along with Serj "Yoooooou aaaaaare goooooone, goodbyeeeeee soooooo loooooong". Very heartfelt, great chorus, and fantastic, exuberant guitaring.
Well, I hope my little tirade was helpful to you. On the whole, bar .36, every track will hold appeal to you metal fans out there. Even my DAD likes Roulette, Nuguns and Streamline.
