5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent., Oct. 14 2012

Two of the finest albums of all time, with interesting extra songs added. Beltane is a great addition to Songs from the Wood. These classics are timeless and sound better than ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Canadian Horror, May 9 2012
This review is from: Monster Brawl (DVD)
Innovative, humorous and gory, this is in my opinion the finest horror related release in 2012. Basically the idea we have all pondered, who would win if the world's most fierce monsters squared off in death matches? Each combatant has a backstory depicted in a mixture of legend, innovation and comic relief. Artful acting by John Geddes and other all stars Robert Maillet and David Foley are further reasons to invest in Monster Brawl. A classic for the ages!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album, March 22 2011
This review is from: Stone Temple Pilots (Audio CD)
Tiny Music and their second album are hard to top but this compares. Many of the musical aspects of their last album were enjoyable, overall it was off. Half of 'Four' was pure gold for example the songs Glide and Pruno but this album is a more complete work. Take a Load Off is genius. I hope to see another album some day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another worthwhile album, March 22 2011
This review is from: Small Source Of Comfort (Audio CD)
Another solid effort from Bruce. Many instrumentals. Lyrically and musically I prefer more nature based themes from Cockburn but these remain very nice additions to this side of his catalogue. I wasn't that taken with his last album 'Life's Short Call Now' but this one is highly superior. Also reccommended are the brilliant 'Salt Sun and Time', 'Sunwheel Dance', 'In the Falling Dark' and 'Night Vision'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A work of art, Aug. 16 2010
Great remaster of a classic from start to finish. Dawn Dance and Bye Bye Idi are two of the best rare tracks on the new remaster discs. I'm still waiting to see Night Vision, Salt Sun and Time and Joy Will Find a Way given similar treatment but they are off to a great start.

Although not as well known as some of his other works, it is as good as any! Well worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars An inspired move, Nov. 13 2009

Although only a single, it stands on its own and should be rereleased. Merkinball is an incredible disc, in truth as good if not better than anything on Mirrorball, the Pearl Jam / Neil Young album. Merkinball has a sound that is a perfect instance of how powerful Pearl Jam is musically, with a great singer and lyricist thrown in the mix. Time for a re,reissue!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great album, Oct. 4 2009

This review is from: Backspacer (Audio CD)
Pearl Jam have released many amazing albums, Binaural, Vitalogy and Self Titled in 2006 for example. This album is great in its own way, with Unthought Known, Speed of Sound, Amongst the Waves, Gonna See my Friend and Got Some all spectacular additions to their catalogue. With the exception of the Fixer, the rest of the songs are quality, though the vocals on Johnny Guitar detract from an otherwise interesting song in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, Aug. 10 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A lot of Gordon Lightfoot's amazing material is on here. The entire first disc is rich diggings. The second contains great stuff too, Mountains and Mary Anne, Something Very Special, Pussywillows Cattails for example. The third disc is largley 'A Sunday Concert'.

The compilation 'Songbook' is also great but this set gives a much better picture of Lightfoot's early work.

Most of this album makes it more than worth owning. Not his best, but still a classic c.d. with some standout songs.
