4.0 out of 5 stars The fall, 23 Aug. 2017
This review is from: New Facts Emerge (MP3 Download)
I must admit I was struggling to find a way into this LP, I have always loved the fall from bingo masters through it all.some grunting and growling and then righteous malestrom ensues and smithy still grunting then with the declaration new facts emerge Mark takes off and I'm in.Its like the last time I saw them Mark just seemed a bit too drunk and all over the place and then just became great totally compelling and the fall were... well the fall.its a great fall LP. And to think I have been listening and watching the fall for the best part of 40 years and don't just see them in some sort of" yeah really important band"way , but as just bloody great is great.no wonder John lydon comes out saying I don't know how he does it,nor do I but I love it

5.0 out of 5 stars Both sides of the lIfe experience in music, 22 Aug. 2017
What is better rainbow or Poppy nogood both of them, desert island choice rainbow perfect for building a tree house in the sun Poppy for sitting on the beach watching the sun go down and the stars come out, one beautifully bubbly the other drone meditation Poppy has a moment about a third of the way in when a bass note drops down into your guts, that is truly wonderful, I think I first heard this at roughly the same time as tubular bells came out there is no contest, this is totally unique music, up there with the best ever recorded

There is a beautiful ambience to the sound of this LP every song is great, especially love furniture man and lowe bonnie ends the album in a perfect way, where do these songs come from?like ry cooder/handsome family and John Fahey lonesome country folk blues, but in it's own unique place,if you like that sort of music then you should definitely get this it is marvelous,for me the best record this year

5.0 out of 5 stars best version of a truly great LP, 21 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Two Sevens Clash (Audio CD)
this is not a review as such ,this is not only argubaly the best roots reggae album of all time but one of the best albums of all time in any genre,I just got this version of it and thought it should be known that it is so much better in sound quality to the thirty year anniversary edition you get some proper bass for a start you miss out on the bonus tracks but there is absolutely no contest otherwise.I love it

4.0 out of 5 stars going down slow, 11 Jan. 2013
when i was a young grammar school kid of about 12 or 13 in 1964/65 completely in the grip of mod and everything happening in the music and youth culture of the time,i asked one of the coolest mod type 5th formers what he thought was the best record record at the moment.expecting him to suggest a stones,animals,pretty things,kinks,who or maybe yardbirds tune,he took my question seriously thought for what seemed like several minutes and replied smokestack lightning howlin wolf..who?what?was it a group called smokestack or howlin wolf,i had no idea,. but if mac sadowski(that was his name)said it was good that was all i needed to know, anyway saturday i was straight down to sloughs best record shop in the indoor market i think it was called daves(im really getting into this memory now)all the mods of the area would be there on saturdays.snd found an ep with a rocking chair on the cover by howlin wolf featuring the song.i couldnt believe what i was hearing when i got home and played it.unlike anything id ever heard,it grooved it rocked the haunting atmosphere of its sound actually scared me. totally and utterly brilliant.as is virtually everythinc the wolfman has ever done,however on that ep were 2 songs, going down slow and youll be mine(ripped off by narc bolan and called jeepster)that were just as great,but dont seem to be on this. so how is it called complete masters with these omissions.howlin wolf is a god and i will be eternally grateful to mac.

4.0 out of 5 stars one thing lets it down, 27 Aug. 2011
i love slow moving american films like last picture show,paris texas,badlands.where you can really get into the characters,and just about all of them are great in this film especially,as every one else has pointed out,leonardos.but johnny depps gives one of his great understated performances,and i can never resist juliette lewis charm.its an endearing film just as all the other positive reviews here say.only one thing spoils it,....the soundtrack is rotten like richard clayderman or something.when what it could have done with ry cooder.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best,best of album ever, 31 Dec. 2010
JAMC could arguably be the best british group of the last 25 years,and never understand is one of the greatest singles of all time.the sound of 40 years of rock and pop fed through the velvets,beach boys,ramones,spector into a shuddering cathedral of feedback reverberation.they took the genre into another dimension,and i loved it.over the following years i bought just about everything they released,and they very rarely disappointed.this best of is a great compilation,featuring some cracking B-sides like the fantastic, kill surf city,and lp tracks like the awesome 9 million rainy days.if youve never heard JAMC and you buy this i envy you,it'd be great to discover a group this good all over again.

2.0 out of 5 stars mainstream disappointment, 30 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Infinite Arms (Audio CD)
i really liked the cranging guitars and gothic shudder of the first two lps,the vocals had a kind of distant otherness, the whole thing floating on a sea of reverb.its a sound im rather partial to.so i got this one out of the library,i guess hoping for more of the same.im afraid its a disappointment to me,they seem to have gone a bit mainstream the overall sound has lost its mystery,and is a fairly rock ordinary,the songs have slightly fussier arrangements but are just bland in the end, maybe they are chasing that homogenized world of rock radio.hoping for bigger success.theyre not the first group to go this way,and good luck to them,maybe mega stardom awaits. ive lost plenty of groups to mainstream popular recognition.so i'll just stick with the first two lps.
