5.0 out of 5 stars MARILYN MANSONS BEST ALBUM!, 15 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Smells Like Children (Audio CD)
Made at a time when the band were heavily into drugs, self mutilation, make up, and smashing their intruments to pieces, this take it or leave it LP contains three cover versions of classics songs 'Sweet Dreams', 'I Put A Spell On You', and 'Rock n Roll Niggar' plus six industrial metal remixes of songs from their under produced debut album 'Portrait Of An American Family' based loosely on the occult and childrens literature, like The Cat In The Hat and Brian Warners stage persona pictured on the album cover of the child catcher from the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Smells Like Childrem also pays homage to Frank Zappa and The Mothers Of Invention hilarious classic album 'We're Only In It For The Money',(a satirical commentary on the 60's hippie culture). MM satire is aimed mostly at catholicism and trashy, american red neck culture most obvious in songs like 'Cake And Sodomy'. I prefer the funny less serious gothic playfulness in the early song releases, before the band started taking themselves seriously with their dark, gloomy, gothic album Antichrist Superstar and the albums that followed. MM would return to his mad hatter stage persona with the bands over produced 2003 release 'The Golden Age Of Grotesque' but the comedy element and wit of there early music wasn't there and fell flat. Smells Like Children was dismissed by its makers and wouldn't merrit the greatest rock albums list or any other rock albums I have in my collection, but its the MM album along with'Portrait' I find the most enjoyable because of the humour.

Track Listing:

1.The Hands of Small Childrem: An intro of crying, screaming babies with the sound of a gothic church bell
2.Diary Of A Dope Fiend: slow, drug indused remix of The Dope Hat from their debut album
3.S***** chicken gang bang: hilarious cresendo intermittant
4.Kiddie Grinder(remix):remix of Organ Grinder
5.Sympathy For The Parents: Audio remix from a daytime chatshow Marilyn Manson and his bandmate Twiggy Ramerez attended discussing mosh pit violence
6.Sweet Dreams: cover version of the Eurythmics which became the bands first hit record
7.Everlasting C***sucker: another drug addeld remix of Cake and Sodomy
8.F*** Frankie: refering to the bands previous road manager who they fired
9.I Put A Spell On You: cover version of a Arthur Brown Song
10.May cause Discoloration of the urine or feces: a prank call to a medical self help radio station
11.Scabs, guns and peanut butter: hilarious chip munk spagetti western song
12.Dance Of The Dope Hats: faster remix of Dope Hat
13.White Trash: crude-funny accoustic version of Cake and Sodomy by their road manager
14.Dancing With The One-Legged: another talk show audio
15.Rock N Roll Niggar: controvercial cover of Patti Smiths Song about individualism

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior version of classic album compared to previous release, 19 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Are You Experienced? (Audio CD)
This original master recording of the greatest rock album, by the greatest rock musician sounded much better compared to the harshly tonned digitally remasterd release, and the songs have been arranged in a more coheisive and concise way that Hendrix intended the listener to hear them and makes the song arrangement on the remasterd album sound messy, even the album cover looks better than the previous one. There's no doubt Hendrix is the greatest guitarist that ever lived and though he was only around for a short time sadly, no other guitarist has matched him before or since after his death (even with Page and Clapton) and never will, his musicianship at Woodstock alone is proof of that.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh come on the albums rubbish, 29 Sept. 2009
This review is from: Battle for the Sun (Audio CD)
As an old school placebo fan my love affair with the bands music ended with Meds, placebo now sound like a hundred other alternative rock bands no wonder Steve Hewitt decided to leave the group, not one track on the album is memorable, i think i heard it three times and was compleatly board with it, placebo used to write catchy songs that could make u ache inside yet never depress, now they just depress.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good album but too minamilistic, 10 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Vespertine (Audio CD)
this was the first Bjork album I bought and liked the ethereal sound of it, but this is far from Bjorks best work I think when you compare it to her previous albums which had more of a punch. Bjork had already exsperimented with minamilist electronic sounds on Homogenic and you get a better listening of her vocal talents which seem subdued on Vespertine as is the music which gets frustrating and boring after a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE FUNNIEST FILMS EVER MADE, 13 Mar. 2009
This film is a totally original, wacky, weird, hilarious work of genius, the whole film is orchestrated like one big symphony and the comic timeing is impeccable, it satirizes the rock culture brilliantly and I think the people that complain about this film just dont know what there talking about. Please could the Zappa Family Trust or anyone put this film to DVD, giving the time it was made it has historical significance and is an important part of the Frank Zappa and The Mothers Of Invention Legacy.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE GREATIST FILM EVER MADE, 21 Jan. 2009
Better than The Godfarther and the best war film ever made, especially now with redux version, because a film this great should be as long as The Godfarther. Apocalypse now offers stunning cinemaphotography of a beautiful country and the uglyness of war combined to make a fascinating trip of a movie through Vietnam. The plot of the film is based on a short story by Joseph Conrad 'Heart Of Darkness'which is a good start. The book is actually about the black slave trade in an african settlement but fits in perfectly with the vietnam war about(like film)the protagonists search for the enigmatic Kurtz. The film also reminds u of 'The Oddessey' as it takes u on the journey, with fantastic songs such as 'The End' by The Doors and some of the finest american actors around at that time. The best scene of course is when the helicopters land on the beach, spectacular! Ive read some people object to the cow slaughter scene, i also object to animal cruelty in film(i.e Cannibal Holocaust) but the real natives probably would have slaughterd it anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beckett is cool!, 4 Dec. 2008
For anyone thinking of buying this excellent book and approaching Beckett for the first time id say that like Kafka hes a existentialist writer which means his work deals with the futility of the human condition. People often misunderstand him because he always tells you life is short and then u die, but he is also a very funny comic writer(Watt is the funniest novel ive read). He's also a very heroic writer because he explores the human condition in a contempory world of non-existents which for centurys writers deemed unusable for literature. The extraordinary static imargery in this book is derieved from his fluent knowledge in the history of painting which he also used in his plays. Becketts genius for tackling grim universal subjects in his writing is partly why hes one of the most important writers of the 20th Century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius. In Search Of Lost Time is a amazing book to read which also reads you!, 3 Dec. 2008
The book could change your whole outlook on life with Prousts limitless aesthetic understanding of the human condition that exspands and changes with each volume. The 1st and 2nd Volume about childhood and adolescence are sublime. The 3rd Volume which deals with the narrators way into polite society is dull, nothings more tedious than reading about aristocrats talking to each other, despite Prousts witty, slapstick humour but gets funnier in the last volume when the aristocratic circle is infiltrated by outsiders due to the outbreak of WW1. The 4th Volume moves into the secret high society world of homesexuality, which contains what Samuel Beckett describes as the greatest passage Proust ever wrote about the death of his grandmother and the events relationship to time, which for anyone whose had to grieve for a loved one will find very moving. The 5th volume is about the narrators realtionship with the mysterious Albertine which is the longest and least enjoyable volume, with its outdated view of homesexuality in the wierd character Of M.Charlus that reaches its tragic conclusion in the last volume of this great work.

1.0 out of 5 stars This album sucks, 17 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Zeitgeist (Audio CD)
I am a big fan of the smashing pumpkins but have to say this album isnt worth buying simply because it doesnt live up to the high standard of their earlier albums, even the album cover is terrrible. The tracks which stand out are the singles Tarantula, Doomsdayclock and Thats the Way which start off strong then fall to pieces half way through. Most great rock bands produce two albums which are of any significance i.e Siamese Dream & Mellon Collie And The Infinate Sadness
