5.0 out of 5 stars You want to get blown away by a big man with dreadlocks?, 3 Jan. 2006
I've seen them live. They were very good, but the album is much better because it goes together like cherry pie.
There is not a bad track on this album, most are quite heavy but there are a few mellow ones.
Skindred are a Raga-metal band, and are in fact the worlds first, combining reggae, meatal and punk- which is a great combination.
They are like System of a Down with a touch of Faith No More and added Dubness.
Best tracks: Pressure, Firing the love, Babylon, Nobody... there are lots in fact...
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars DON'T STEAL THIS ALBUM- The band deserve money, 24 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Hypnotize (Audio CD)
I got this album on the day it came out and listened to it many times. I was not disappointed. But I have never been disappointed with this band. This album is better than Mezmerize, without a doubt.
System of a down are such a great band because they are so unique- if anyone tried to cover one of their songs it would be awful. They are my favourite Armenian-American band...
This goes back to the good old days, it is closer to SOAD's earlier stuff, which is undoubtebly their best.
The last track on this album is Soldier Side, a 3 minute 40 version, so strictly speaking this album comes before mezmerize.
This could quite possibly their best album. If you are a fan of this type of music you should also get STEAL THIS ALBUM by SOAD.
My favorite track is Vicinity of Obscenity, I also like Attack.
The album in 3 words: Shiny, Black, Amazing

5.0 out of 5 stars MY FIRST EVER ROCK ALBUM- AND STILL THE BEST, 16 Nov. 2005
This review is from: Ten (Audio CD)
In 1994 this album was given to me by my Dad when I was just 4 years old, it was my first ever heavy album.
Eleven years later, I have aquired a collection of over 500 albums, and even after 11 years had gone by, this is still one of my favorite albums ever.
The songs on this album are amazing. Eddie Vedder, the singer, has an incredible voice and he is one of the coolest people ever. The guitar on this album rocks. There is a brilliant contrast of bittersweet lyrics and heavy songs.
If you like Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Chili Peppers or even Guns N roses you will love this album. It has a unique quality though that is unlike any other band. You need this album in your life whoever or wherever you are.
This album includes most of the classic Pearl Jam songs. If I could own only one album this would be it.
This album really deseves 5 stars and it deserves to be heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST...ALBUM...EVER, 15 Nov. 2005
Most people think that Siamese Dream is the best Smashing Pumpkins album. They probably haven't heard Melon Collie.
This is my favourite album in the world.
It is impossible to tell you how good this album is really but here is the facts:
This album is THE SMASHING PUMPKINS, not just Billy Corgan.
It has better tracks on, as said by the band, than all other pumpkins albums.
It does not have a single poor track on, on both CD's.
It has the greatest solos on, for any pumpkins album except pisces iscariot.
If you want to indroduce yourself, or anyone else to alternative music it is the perfect album- from personal experience.
It will not disapppoint you, it is great as a gift.
It is a complete album- meaning you don't put it on to listen to the two best tracks, the whole 2 CD album is like that and you want to hear all of it.
I think if you are considering to get his album you should get it, simply because I think people deserve to hear music as brilliant and as pure as this.
Please checkout all the pumpkins albums you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars This IS the Red Hot Chili Peppers. ONE HOT MINUTE., 13 Nov. 2005
I have been a fan of the Chili Peppers since I was just 6 years old, and this is my favorite album by them, and I know thats true- I have them all.
This is their album that was released after Blood Sugar Sex Magic, when their guitarist was suffering from drug addiction. Dave Navaro (the guitarist from Janes Addiction)does the guitar on this album- he is a much more vibrant and solid guitarist in my opinion, and you can tell this from his many cool riffs.
The first song on this album, Warped, is amazing, it is heavy yet darker than anything the chilis have done before. The lyrics on this song, like most of the album, are incredible. Other cool songs on this album are Deep Kick, a mini snippet of the history of the Chilis- Ive always thought that this song defined the band.
This album is WAY better than Blood Sugar Sex Magic, which is by far their most well known album.
I especially recomend this album if you like grunge and metal bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam or Faith No More. If you dont know those bands check them out.
Also this album has many influences from the Butthole Surfers, who are an incredible band and if you like the chilis it is only right to check them out.
