4.0 out of 5 stars Weird but wonderful!, 4 April 2002
This was released fairly soon after the original album (Dos Dedos)but some of the remixes are exceptional. I was lucky enough to get the double cd which has 21 tracks (some of which are not so good) Ich Bin.. start off running, more rapping than the original but one of the best intros to an album that you'll hear. Unfortunately the only downside is the length of some tracks. While they have been totally remixed they sometimes go on far too long. I'd recommend the original album as an intro or the double album if you can find it. If not though this is still well worth a listen. If only all the mixes of RSVP were here!!! we can but dream.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lost the plot?, 21 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Heartbreak Station (Audio CD)
This is a bit of a strange one! If you're a fan of Long Cold Winter or Still Climbing then this may be a dissapointment. The idea here seems to be raising the bands profile in the U.S.A. This is reflected in the almost Country(ish) sound. The main reason I like this band is that they rock when they want, but when they try a ballad the quality is still there. Unfortunately this album did nothing for me. The rock is replaced with... ballads, and the ballads are replaced with... more ballads. If any other "Rock" band had produced this then the result might be better, however Cinderella have done themselves no justice. If you're new to the band try Long Cold Winter or Still Climbing as here you'll see just how good they are when they want to be. Overall not too good, but certainly not desperate.

1.0 out of 5 stars Distressing at best!!, 21 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Influences (Audio CD)
For a musician who is obviously very talented, the question really must be why? There is a distinct lack of structure to most of the (5) tracks. The first track lumbers from one mood to another (18 minutes of lumbering was more than I could stand) but doesn't really go anywhere. Unfortunately the other four tracks are the weaker ones. If you are expecting anything resembling the pop/funk of Level 42 stay well away from this. But if your idea of a great time is listening to a very talented man go horribly wrong, then this would be a must. To say I was dissapointed would be an understatement. I only gave the one star in sympathy as if this is the best he can come up with now, the name Mark King will never again grace the charts... or was the idea to alienate any lingering fans??? Be warned the King is dead...long live?????

3.0 out of 5 stars Great title, average album!, 19 Mar. 2002
This review is from: B*St*Rds (Audio CD)
No real surprises with this one. Loud, hard, heavy however you want it described. The lyrics are typical Lemmy, plenty of women, booze and drugs. The stand out track has got to be Born To Raise Hell, (mixes rock and roll, boogie woogie and hard rock) - stomper. Don't Let Dady Kiss Me is a slower effort based around child abuse, but it doesn't really fit with the rest of the album. Overall not a bad effort but a long way from their best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection!!, 5 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Brick By Brick (Audio CD)
One of my favourite albums, each track has a different format and sound, which can be a bit disappointing if you just want Iggy rocking, but I love it! From the opening track "Home" through some slower more melodic tracks, the pure pop of "Candy" and the heavy rock of "I Won't Crap Out", there is nothing here that is sub-standard. If all you need is rock, then this may not be the best Iggy album to buy, but if you want some fun with it then give it a go!. I'm on my third copy of the cd now, I've played the others to death...

1.0 out of 5 stars Why wasn't Fish thrown back into the sea!!, 3 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Fugazi [Bonus Disc] (Audio CD)
From start to finish this album reaks of over indulgence and pomposity (I think that's the word).The whole album tries to be too complex and fails miserably. The lyrics are poorly written and generally do nothing to inspire the listener to want to listen! One positive point though. If you buy this and like it, save yourself some money and don't buy Script For A Jesters Tear. By listening to the track She Cameleon you will have heard all the highlights of the other album in one go!. Buy at your peril, you have been warned!

4.0 out of 5 stars Some rare stuff, loads of great stuff, 3 Mar. 2002
This collection has older tracks mixed with some more recent stuff. Most of it would fit well into their other albums, with only a couple of strange tracks. "Blue On A Green Planet" for one, when I first heard this I thought someone had sneaked in and changed the cd, however to this day the song hasn't grown on me. Big Country do "Jazz" well sort of. Anyway this is worth buying for cd 1 alone. Most are old b-sides, with a few other bits thrown in. Cd 2 has The "Restless Natives" on it (along with 6 others) but this is a bit patchy. The film may be a masterpiece but the soundtrack lumbers from one change of pace to another and never really gets going. Never mind overall an excellent buy, well worth a try for new fans, and a must for the diehards!!
