5.0 out of 5 stars The memories......, 27 May 2011
This is a classic for anyone who loves military music. I grew up with this stuff, as the flute/piccolo player for the Dukes at this time was actually my father so I'm a little bias (check out his part on Stars and Stripes Forever in "Sousarama")! Also my Uncle, who has now sadly passed on, played the cornet on this album so I would also recommend giving "Trumpet Filigree" a listen- it sounds like it should be the theme tune to a gameshow but it's fantastic! If you're into tub-thumping then "Victory Beatings" will keep you happy, and if you like movie and TV themes then there's a lovely Grease medley and a great rendition of The Professionals theme. The album is topped off with the DWR's brilliant regimental march "The Wellesley" (Arthur Wellesley is the former Duke of Wellington) which is a quick march. All in all this album is a corker. Suck it and see.

Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! What can I say?...Sheer brilliance on a disc!, 28 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Powerslave (Audio CD)
Ranking way up there with the likes of Judas Priest and Black Sabbath, Maiden rock with the best of them, in fact they are my personal favourite. But, as well as being a classical example of a heavy metal group, Iron Maiden are also story tellers. They have the most narrative lyrics EVER in rock music.
The album "Powerslave" is far from an exception.
From the opening track "Aces High", about a WW2 air-raid, to the almighty grinding sounds of the title track, Bruce Dickinson's bunch have done it again- produced a unique and awe-inspiring work of art.
Also, the last track, the 9+ minute "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" is Steve Harris's finest epic to date. Fans who have heard and enjoyed "Hallowed Be Thy Name" (The Number of the Beast), and "Alexander The Great" (Somewhere in Time) both by Harris, will bearly be able to keep their jaws off the floor! "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" is an enthralling journey through the Mariner's eyes, with two quotes from Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
Also, track 3, entitled "Losfer Words (Big 'Orra)" is one of the finest instrumentals you are ever likely to listen to, again, written by Steve Harris. It is good to both chill out to or jump around to!
The bottom line is this: if you're a Maiden fan, you album collection isn't in anyway shape or form complete without this little gem! BUY IT!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ya know, she's right!, 15 Jan. 2002
This review is from: You Are My World (Audio CD)
This is phenomenal. If, like me, you are a Christian that likes good old secular (i.e. not strictly Christian) music, this album will change you, in fact, any Hillsongs album will. It certainly made me crave this type of worship from the word "go"!
Darlene Zschech (Hillsongs lead singer) is a very annointed person, and this album will have you laughing, crying, and just celebrating God's divine love for you to your fullest. It has some slow, deep worship ballads, and some bouncy, "get on your feet and dance" songs.
If you've never heard Hillsong Music Australia before, this is a good album to get first, as it's typical Hillsong material, which never fails to capture your worshipful heart. This CD will bless your socks off!
