5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Band In The World...Apart From Radiohead, Obviously, 6 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Puzzle (Audio CD)
I've been a Biffy fan for several years now and their quirky alt-metal has taken them to being one of my favourite bands. Songs like 57, Joy Discovery Invention and Bodies In Flight are among my favourite all time tracks. Puzzle is different, it's more mainstream and they rock less hard here than on previous efforts. But I think many long-term Biffy fans have gone down the 'alienates older fans' route wrongly. There are tracks here that wouldn't be out of place on previous albums like 'Now I'm Everyone' and 'Semi-Mental'. Yes it is different but embrace the changes and be thankful. After all if Biffy hadn't cracked it this time and made it into the mainstream they probably wouldn't have much of a future.
Key Tracks: 1) Living Is A Problem Because Everything Dies'
2) Saturday Superhouse
3) A Whole Child Ago

3.0 out of 5 stars You Mean This Lot Are Angry?, 25 Mar. 2007
This review is from: Yours Truly, Angry Mob (Audio CD)
Well actually they are, seemingly cheesed off at the success of debut album Employment in 2005 the Kaiser Chiefs are back with giant hooks and tunes to spare. Ricky Wilson says you can play these songs on the recorder and he's right. Yet this is far from the happy go lucky indie tune fest of their previous works. The Chiefs have fallen for the old indie curse of worrying about being taken seriously. Their first album was enjoyable and fun even if it did lack large amounts of decent lyrics and seriousness. Now they've over compensated. The lead single and first track 'Ruby' is an impressive reminder of their early singles with it's radio 1 sing a long feel and simple guitar riff. Title track 'The Angry Mob' is more serious but yet is a lovingly crafted social commentary that is possibly the standout track here. It takes an eon to reach it's slightly brutal chorus but you get so caught up you hardly notice. 3rd track 'When The Heat Dies Down' is old Kaiser fod yet again and impresses while 'Highroyds' is the standout of the album as Wilson sings in earnest about 'texts from an ex' and 'a girl from Potters Bar'. From then on however things seem slightly strained. With the exception of 'Love's Not A Competition (But I'm Winning)' and 'Retirement' the songs are merely tired retreads of old songs made serious. They still have the stomp but in a desperate effort to feel like a proper rock band they've let themselves down. Good but not an improvement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful, Crass and Confusing, 30 Oct. 2005
The Claws Of Axos is rather visually stunning. It most definitely points out that DOCTOR WHO is now in COLOUR. The amass of colours in The Claws Of Axos is rather like sixteen fauvist paintings being mixed together.
When you get away from the immense visual effect of the story you start to watch one of the better Jon Pertwee stories. The Master is on fine form as are the UNIT family. Katy Manning wears one of the shortest skirts ever seen on BBC television and Pertwees Doctor is on fine form.
A fun tale spoilt slightly by lumbering lumps of spaghetti and poor special effects.

3.0 out of 5 stars Experimental but needed a few improvements, 5 Sept. 2005
Colin Bakers reign as the sixth doctor presented turbulent times for DOCTOR WHO but Vengeance On Varos is one of his better adventures. The idea of a planet almost dominated by watching live executions and experiments on television is a good one but this serial is spoilt by wooden acting [particularly by Baker] and totally unnecessary violence.
Overall though I reccomend this to you as a DOCTOR WHO fan but its far from perfect WHO.

Dvd ~ Peter Davison

Price: £9.90

3.0 out of 5 stars Another worthy DVD release., 5 Sept. 2005
The Visitation is in my opinion a much underrated story. Peter Davisons fifth doctor tries to take Tegan back to Heathrow in order for her to return to the flight she was supposed to be on before joining the Doctor. The TARDIS however ends up in 1666. 300 years before Heathrow was built. The Doctor and his companions then get caught up in a plot by three fugitive tereliptils and their 'grim reaper' android.
This is an enjoyable adventure with convincing monsters [apart from the tights they wear] and top performances particuarly from Davison and Michael Robbins who plays out of work actor Richard Mace.
This is worth a DVD despite what many may say and despite its flaws it is a good DOCTOR WHO adventure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why wasn't this Doctor Whos return, 16 Aug. 2005
Plus marks first.Paul Mcgann is brilliant as the Doctor.The story is played out in WHO style.
Bad news is this has massive plot holes and has been too americanised.
But I still do not see why this wasn't enought to return Doctor Who to the TV screens every week.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Who, 31 July 2005
Peter Davison was the best Doctor.He never gave a bad performance no matter what rubbish the writers gave him.He was always there.Struggling to keep up with the twists and turns in the plot and trying not to fall into the massive holes in it.He was in a word,Superb.The Caves Of Androzani features maybe his best performace.The script for once is perfect.Graeme Harper directs well in his Who debut.
Davison is not the only actor who gives a great performance in this story though.Nicola Bryant is great as his companion Peri and Christopher Gable is fantastic as Resistance leader Sharaz Jek.
The story itself features the Doctor and Peri first being convicted of gun running to the rebels and then slowly being killed by a raw chemical.
At the end of the episode Davison himself leaves the show[after a criminally short three years] and regenerates into Colin Baker.
This disc has no discernible faults.Buy it whether a Who fan or just a conisseur of TV drama.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Potter yet, 27 July 2005
Harry Potter and the Half-blood prince is a work of genius.Rowling has surpassed herself.There is a mystery with every page you turn and the book is impossible to put down.There are some shocks in there and you have to have read OOTP to have any idea of whats going on but although not in the same class as Tolkein this is a must read.
