5.0 out of 5 stars Leaves you with an elevating feeling of completeness, 17 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Going Blank Again (Audio CD)
At first this album seems fairly subtle and can pass you by without real notice if you don't focus on it. Perhaps whilst leaning out of your bedroom window on a sunny day or whilst on a journey through some unusual place with a personal stereo, you'll suddenly feel its power washing over you, sending shivers down your spine, sending you on a journey accross 50 states of mind. Chrome Waves, Track 4, is an amzingly soaring track which makes you realise you're on a journey through time and seems to reflect on your life from a new plane. A spine tingler if ever I heard one! Also Leave Them All BEhind is an absolute classic, a perfect intro to an album of subtle perfection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overwhelmingly Amazing, 17 Sept. 2003
All I can say is, you'll have moments where you'll feel this album so much that you'll want to turn your body inside out to allow every blood cell to absorb the sounds you are hearing.
That happened to me while sitting on a mountain in Morocco whilst listening to this on my personal stereo.
This is coming from someone who likes a lot of different music, Smashing Pumpkins to Lamb, Tool to Dub Reggae, The Doves to Curve, not just some Nine-Inch-Nails-only-industrial-type, although I do ike some of their stuff also!
Overall, please get this album I want more people to have the privilage of hearing it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Grower, It'll Grow To The Top Of Your Collection, 10 Mar. 2003
This review is from: Cuckoo (Audio CD)
Start by listening to a track in the middle and you will get a feel for it and tune into to the subtle dynamics of Curve. You'll start to feel the ethereal power of the dynnamic sounds which completment the ultimately catchy tunes, with Halidays pure vocals like a rose-petal bath. The most poppy tune is Superblaster, this would be the ultimate Curve party tune. Spread the word, Curve are so under rated, so many people are missing out on this, I couldn't reccomend it more. If you like anything like My Bloody Valentine, NIN, Depeche Mode, Leftfield, Garbage and the likes you're guarenteed to like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purity!, 12 Feb. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a superb example of absolute purity in film making, the atmosphere is compelling throughout, the character's emotions transcend perfectly through ethereal cinemaphotography that is still cutting edge 40 years on. After you see this you will want more, I reccomend you find the next in the 'Antoine Doinell' series, called 'Antoine et Collette', a short film which captures Antoine's teenage emotional ups and downs with spot on perfection. After that theres 3 more Antoine films that continue his life in his twenties, displaying quirky wit, and more heart capturing cinematography.

3.0 out of 5 stars Got it for 'Crawling', kept it for a little more..., 11 Aug. 2001
This review is from: Hybrid Theory (Audio CD)
Lets not compare them to Limp Bizkuit, Floppy Cooky or crumbly cake, its totally in a higher league than that FAD induced stuff. But only by the merit of a few tracks... On the positive side 'Crawling' is an absolute gem of a tune, with its Depeche Mode style verse electronica and blow away chorus that you can feel in your veins ( needs to be played loudly ). Paper Cut and One Step Closer are powerful songs, though they fall with lines like SHUT UP WHEN I'm TALKING TO YOU! which just makes me think of a moody 11 year old slamming his door to an irrate mother. As pointed out by many others track 11 'cure for the itching' is a very nice DJ Shadow style instrumental, with even Global-Underground-sub alternative-aphex-Twin drum roll interludes. There is a now almost obligotory 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'(NIRVANA) riff on the track Run Away, which is almost saved by being quite good but just lacks a little lustre somewhere. The rapping almost works well in audio terms, however the lyrics often seem to have been rushed and they don't seem genuine, a bit Face-Pace_Race-Fast-Past_Last type. It worries me that I was embarassed to tell my friends I'd got this album concidering they're all into Alternative Music, its when you see the Fad induced 12 year olds with Linkin Park hoody tops on (coz their mates have one probably) that you question the guinuineness of it all, mind you I bought Nirvana albums aged 13 and at 19 I still love them. Over all interesting stuff, reassuringly produced and commercial, few amazing tunes but worth it just for them. The real test is going to be the next album. Keep Craling very loudly!
