4.0 out of 5 stars great album, Feb. 27 2007
This review is from: Feedback (Advisory) (Audio CD)
i love most of this album. great beats, great flow, great lyrics. but i emphasize the great flow; some songs have a great ebb and flow, and then run into the next track so great.

i'm not a big fan of brown girl and work it out - too poppy for me; even though the album on the whole is more poppy than their previous records. my fav tracks are the last 4. future sound is the best - i love how they incorporated brass into the beat, makes it classy. future sound was in the hbo show entourage.

5.0 out of 5 stars An adventurous journey, Dec 2 2006
This review is from: The Glass Castle (Paperback)
Walls writes like she lived. This book has such rich emotion in every page; you will re-read parts to get that emotion again.

You are told of the everyday events that turn out to be exciting adventures through the eyes of a child. She is the coolest child - curious, witty, bright, and strong willed. The early years are filled with nostalgia. You almost protest when she grows up and looses some of that innocent, giddy outlook.

As she grows older the more sombre issues come in as she begins to understand them. The kids stick together like glue and they become focused on the singular goal that is their dream. I love their relationships and how they fight for each other.

Another similar theme of the free-running childhood days of innocence can be found in the Road to Nab End by William Woodruff.

One of the funniest, saddest, exciting, and real books I've read in a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow. this is musical creativity, Nov. 10 2006
This review is from: Amputechture (Audio CD)
Not mainstream by any means in my opinion. They make use of a lot of different instruments, vocal sounds, percussian, rhythms, dissonance, etc, etc. Definitly awesome music. It's like they just rocked out on one take in the studio cuz it's so natural and so creative.

You know when you say "I love Hail to the Thief"? The love is similar for Amputechture; that love for musical creativity!!

I'm not going to go through the songs but I really need to stress that you will hear the craziest, I repeat, CRAZIEST drum solo on Day of the Baphomets @10mins. I go bananas listening to it.
