5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best book I have ever read, 24 Feb. 2009
This is the book I was waiting for: someone has done the research and put credible broad-brush energy numbers down on paper, and it's surprisingly entertaining as a bonus.

If you want to know the scale of the sustainable energy/climate change problems we face, and what scale the possible solutions need to be, get this book. If you'd prefer to believe that buying a Prius will save the world, don't get this book.

It's a stunning achievement and it should be made compulsory reading for anyone involved in government.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new high for Ezio, 8 Sept. 2006
This review is from: Ten Thousand Bars (Audio CD)
These are great songs, and some of the most personal songs Ezio has written, somehow they are more intimate than even the most passionate love song he has written before. A veil has been removed - you know this stuff has happened and affected him.

Superbly recorded and produced, Ezio's voice sounds wonderful, full of atmosphere and subtle tones, and the instruments are all given room to breathe in the mix. Lee Russell's slide guitar fits in well with and expands the classic Ezio sound, and Alex Reeves' creative and dynamic drum parts drive and enhance the songs, rather than merely accompanying. Lydia Cascarino's understated and fluid bass is, perhaps a little too quiet, but this is a minor issue. And of course, the guitars are as good as ever.

This is Ezio's best album yet. If you're a fan, you need to buy it. If you're not yet a fan - start here!
