3.0 out of 5 stars rise against?, 8 Jun. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Radioactivist (Audio CD)
this lot deal in noisy and direct punk
so the good is that the songs are fast and direct and usually armed with some catchy riffs
the downside is that the riffs start to get repeated and the songs all start to sound the same and they start to illustrate just how much better bands like rise against and cancer bats are at this type of noisy rock
despite its short run time i still found myself a little bored after the admittedly excellent divebomb as they seemed to run out of ideas and just reinterpret and repeat the first five songs over and over again
and the politically themed lyrics were just poor
aspirations of the dead kennedies that fall a little short

4.0 out of 5 stars misleading title, 31 May 2008

This review is from: Naked Killer [DVD] (1992) (DVD)
ok so the general gist of this is that a lesbian hit woman recruits a new girl who is entangled with a bent copper then another lesbian hit woman shows up and takes an interest in the first girl
in between all of this confusing love triangle there is alot of shooting and stabbing and a little lesbian messing about
if you want 90 minutes of guns and nudity then look elsewhere as the focus here is the connection between the characters and the action is more of a distraction from the story
but it is still very entertaining

5.0 out of 5 stars they back, 31 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Opaque Brotherhood (Audio CD)
the lotus has returned and it may be their best yet
this is the third effort from the psychopathic supergroup and its not as immediate as the previous efforts but it does continue to heavily mix thickly distorted guitars into their morbid hip hop mixture
the beats are thick and the groove is slow and the raps again crawl from the members mouths
the songs are fantastic and possibly some of the best there boys have crafted
my personal faves being in bloom withered for its slower dark hook and black sand for its fantastic jamie madrox lead chorus
overall i would highly recommend this to any juggalo out there you wont be disappointed

4.0 out of 5 stars not bad, 31 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tempest (Audio CD)
so the clowns are back without the jokers cards and what have they got to offer
well its not bad
its better than hells pit not quite as consistent as milenko or the wraith no where as entertaining as jeckell brothers
but where it scores is that you dont feel the urge to skip anything even if the songs aren't as good as elsewhere they still aren't bad songs its just that they have better songs on other albums
in comparison to their other albums this is worth three stars but as a stand alone album then four stars i would say is fair
if you are new to the clowns you could very easily start here as it has a bit of everything that they have done involved in this one

5.0 out of 5 stars waiting for the heroes, 31 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Furious (Audio CD)
with the clowns esham and lavel involved this should be pretty good and yes it delivers and then some
what they have done is made a much more compact album that feels quite frantic in comparison to their other works
the beats flow the aggression is again feeling higher than before
everybody involved does a very good job in their chosen area but for me esham tears it up the best
the songs feel simplified in comparison to their other work and just adds to the relentless pace of the album
if you like the clowns this is definitely worth a look

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, 21 May 2008
This review is from: One Minute Science (Audio CD)
this album has got the lot
it really is that simple
the range of songs on display is scary from the big rock rage of im not trading to the industrial tinged stomp of power struggle through the acoustic sorrow of 7% to the trip hop fuelled OD to the blues jazz lunacy of grape
at every turn its inspired and unexpected and that is what makes this such an enthralling listen
sadly the band is no more but atleast they have left behind this towering majestic album of utter genius

3.0 out of 5 stars very shiny, 20 May 2008
This review is from: The Amalgamut (Audio CD)
filter bloke ex nine inch nails and stuff who cares?
look at this album on its own merits!
and there are plenty of those the vocal performance for me is the stand out as this is i feel the best that richard patrick has sounded his voice soars and roars in equal measures and the music is very slick and exceptionally varied in style and tempo and thankfully is very rarely dull
they manage to mix industrial metal with big stadium rock melodies and hooks that keep you humming them for days
but on the downside the lyrics are truly terrible and sound like they have been written using a rhyming dictionary
and the music suffers because it has lost some of its bite and some of the individuality that set filter apart and they have started to sound like any other faceless american band that wants to moan about the world
ultimately disappointing but has a couple of face ripping tunes that just about keep it afloat but i would suggest starting somewhere else as this is trying to please everyone and has spread itself too thin

2.0 out of 5 stars misleading box, 15 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a group of american students are on a trip to ireland for halloween to study the local rituals and as is usual bump into something they didn't bargain for
what this does have going for it is that it seems to have a better budget than most other films of this ilk and subsequently it looks better than most
it builds a creepy atmosphere quite well for the majority of the film and the direction is pretty good and nicely stylish
and it does have some very attractive actresses involved too
the downside though is that this has already been done too many times already and we really didn't need this film to be made as it adds nothing new to the mix
the acting is pretty poor and the special effects aren't great either
when the death does begin i found it was when i started to get bored they ruin all the eerie stuff that they had build and manage to completely trash that in 10 minutes of sex and blood
in short it could have been great but they played it safe and gave us something obvious that we have all seen before

2.0 out of 5 stars oh dear, 15 May 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
what we have here is pretty poor even by b movie standards
the plot is ancient, escaped psychopath is on the loose and a bus full of cheerleaders have got lost and ran out of petrol in the same set of woods
you can see where this is leading
on the plus side it does set up its stall early and just gets straight into the action there is a fair amount of splatter and a truckload of nudity but considering it does have 4 adult actresses in it so that wasn't really much of a surprise now was it
and the plot does have quite a nice twist to it
the downside of which there is much ......... the acting even for a b movie is awful the special effects really aren't special at all they are terrible at best and embarrassing at the worst the soundtrack similarly is terrible and feels inappropriate
it does kill time but i severely doubt you will want to watch this more than once if you can even get through it once

4.0 out of 5 stars pure sleaze, 6 April 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
what you are looking at here is a superb collection of songs lovingly crafted into quite possibly the sleaziest album ever made.
they call their sound disco sleaze and it really is the most appropriate term for it big beats tussle with groovy bass lines whilst seedy lyrics and b movie samples are layered over the top
everything about this album just oozes sleaze and filth and as long as you can appreciate the dark humour laced through songs like transvestite sista and jet set sex then you will really enjoy this album and just when you think they can do no more they hit you with a deft touch of insane melody to finish with covergirl blues
absolutely brilliant
