5.0 out of 5 stars This is real rock music... Simply wonderful..., 25 Mar. 2004
Already bieng a huge fan of British Rock music (see my highly rated reviews on Iron Maiden), and after their masterpiece 'Definatly Maybe', I was looking greatly looknig foward to the release of this one.
Yet again, the John Lennon-inspired quintet didn't disappoint, forcing an amazing 3 singles straight into the spotlight at number one in the UK charts.
"Some Might Say", "Roll With It" and "Don't Look Back in Anger" were all chart toppers, with fourth single "Wonderwall" sliding in at number 2.
If that wasn't enough success for one of Britain's biggest rock bands, the album itself became the second-best selling album in UK history, and dominated the album chart, achieving the number 1 position on 2 seperate occasions.
The success of the album has historic, and the band are legendary. Every track on "What's the Story" is just wonderful, and those that form their opinion on the criminal record of Liam Gallagher are merely pathetic snobs. It simply doesn't seem possible that anyone with an open mind could rate this album as nothing other than sensational.
The album's heavy, Gary Glitter-inspired opener, "Hello" has a blistering guitar riff that will make your ears bleed, with Liam Gallagher shouting "Hello, hello, hello", along with Noel's backing vocals of "It's good to be back" are simply sensational.
And it doesn't stop there. The latter is a mere example, and all the songs on the album are as amazing and awe-inspiring as anything you have ever heard before.
Bieng a professional Rock Journalist, i've heard a lot of music over the years; some good, some bad, some great, but very few (possibly two or three) albums could ever compare with this. It is in a league of it's own, with nothing to excede it.
Seriously, if you want an hour of real rock music worthy of the crown jewels? Then had over the tenner Amazon.co.uk are asking for. You will not be disappointed.
This is simply magical...

1.0 out of 5 stars Nintendo... How low can you go..., 8 Feb. 2004
This game has to be THE WORST game I have ever played in my life. The gameplay is crap. The storyline is crap. The whole game is crap.
Firstly, the graphics are quite impressive, but your character is a cartoon, and the landscape is not. It just looks wierd...
Secondly, the idea and storyline. You're just a person in a massive and rediculus-looking robot costume with a laser beam that is used for opening doors and killing aliens. Lame or What? And you just travel around the different planets killing things.
Thirdly, the gameplay. IT IS CRAP!!! The laser beam (that lasts forever) takes about ten hits to kill one enemy. It is also basically impossible to beat. I completed it on easy with a lot of difficulty, and am never playing it again.
COME ON NINTENDO!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brucy and the Beast, 8 Nov. 2003
This review is from: The Number Of The Beast (Audio CD)
When Paul Dianno imploded in a puff of cocane, and Iron Maiden were in need of a new singer, Bruce Dickinson immidiatly stepped in, completly revolutionizing rock music forever. In 1982, when the album was released, "The Number of the Beast" debued and stayed at number one. The results speak for themselves:
This is, without doubt, one of the greatest album of all time, by one of the greatest bands of all time.
The albums two singles, "Run to the Hills" and the title track itself were, and still are, widley regarded as the two best songs by Iron Maiden, and consiquently the two most popular.
Other classics on the album include:
"The Prisoner," inspired by the cult 60s TV show, and a panteded Maden classic.
"22 Acacia Avenue," the smut-ridden sequal to "Charlotte the Harlot" on their debuet album.
"Children of the damned," the slow, seductive, and potentially genius classic which was inexplicably never released as a single.
Ans last but not least, "Hallowed Be Thy Name," the best song on the album that ends with a bang, rather than a whimper.
The other songs on the album are by no means "Album Fillers." They are all equally impressive, and whoever says otherwise needs their head examined.
This is Maiden doing what they do best, and you would be hard-pushed to find a more exhilerating 45 mins of pure entertainment...

5.0 out of 5 stars Iron Maiden... What can I say?, 17 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Dance Of Death (Audio CD)
We've waited since the year 2000 for some more Iron Maiden to come out, and, with Blaze Bayley on the bench, the results did not dissapoint. In fact, 'Dance of Death' not only puts everything they've done since 1982 to shame, but has elevated Iron Maiden from bieng a well known and respected band to somthing even better - somthing... Genius. They, with the help of this album, have climbed that ladder to success, and have made their mark in history as one of the greatest bands in history. Dance of Death isn't just a great album, It's one of the greatest, to battle with Brave New World, or the Number of the Beast for the title of greatest album ever. If, for instance, last week, you picked up this album and shook your head, go back and get it - It'll be the best £13 you'll ever spend...
