5.0 out of 5 stars Under My Skin Has Gotten Under MY Skin!, June 4 2004
This review is from: Under My Skin (Audio CD)
I dont know what I was to expect when I picked up this album about to purchase it. I didnt think it was going to match up to the overall brilliantess of "LET GO", I loved every single song on that album and that has only happened 1 other time. So I got it. And when I played it, it sounded cool, the opening track "Take me away" and once each song flowed on to the next, I loved this album, forget about all of those negative reviews from stupid people who havent even heard the album and judge her on what she is "posing" as. This album is really good and really catchy! I mean that A L O T . Some lyrics may be a little under-written and the vocals arent what you call Christina Aguilera,but she isnt trying to be in -your-face SEX pop.It IS a really good album and a brilliant follow up to "Let Go". Technically, its like "Let Go Part II" both albums would be amazing if they were packaged together and released together. I am going to review each song now:
1. Take Me Away.....Great start to the album 10/10
2.Together....... I think of this as "Complicated Part II" cuz if you listen to the lyrics, it is. 10/10
3.Don't Tell Me......... good 1st single, I wouldve chosen another one. Good song .But im getting kinda tired of it. 9/10
4. He Wasnt....... This is one thats not amazing for me, cuz it sounds so cheerleadery but again its kinda like "Sk8r Boi Part II" but not AS exciting..............8/10
5.How Does It Feel?........ I love this song. Its so nice! 10/10
6.My Happy Ending........... this song is nice too and Avrils 1st swear word....Sh*t! Its nothing huge to consider though (the swear word--the song rules!) 10/10
7. Nobodys Home.......... Again a nice song, light rock, is a good way to put it. 10/10
8. Forgotten......... this is SO Evanescence!!! Its cool........ 10/10
9.Who Knows?......... another nice song additon to the album 9.5/10
10.Fall To Pieces....... Nice. 10/10
11. Freak Out........ Hmmmmmmmmmmm a slower version of Sk8r Boi? kinda..... not rocky, well it is. Kind of a "Sk8r Boi Part III (Remix)" yeah. 8.7/10
12. Slipped Away....... OMG! I love this, this is what I call a really nice song yeah, like Britneys "Everytime" is an OK WAY TO describe it, of course not poppy but a nice rememberance song.............10/10
Well thats it really my fave tracks are:
Take Me Away
Together
How Does It feel?
My Happy Ending
Forgotten
Nobodys Home
Slipped Away.
Overall this is one album that I virtually like EVERY track of!
If you are considering this, forget those annoying reviews from ppl who havent even listened to the album
Song Catchiness: 10/10 Definitley!
Lyric Brilliantness: 6/10....not amazing. But very acceptable
Vocal Brilliantness: 8/10........ not a huge voice but one thats got an influence.
So yeah I reccomend it!
All you Avril haters should atleast try and make out you are a fan ands see how you like it then!

5.0 out of 5 stars N I R V A N A : GREATEST HITS 2002, May 22 2004
OK, first off, why all the negative reviews!!?!, what the hell is wrong with this album? They just contain some of the best Nirvana tracks re-mastered and one freaky track "You know your'e right", in other words an enjoyable album! I have no idea in hell why u guys are giving it 1 -3 stars! It isnt bad! They are all Nirvana fans fave songs, well maybe not all, but they are damn good songs!
But we will cut to the chase, what this Greatest hits record really is about.... "You know your'e right", the final Nirvana recording (as we know) and the most scary. It is real weird! hearing him say he's never been so well, and swell is not right has not long later he blew his head off. OK, not a B A D song but far from the greatness of "Smells like teen spirit" or "Heart Shaped-box" Thats all I'm sayin!

5.0 out of 5 stars MTV Unplugged 1993, May 22 2004
This review is from: Unplugged In New York (Audio CD)
This is a nice album, no drugged up bass guitar goin mental, no scary vocals, just chilling haunting vocals and nice slow music... This is one great album! hence the 5 Star rating.
I 100% reccomend this!, as oddly enogh I started this album off when I discovered Nirvana and the song that got my attention the most was "the man who sold the world" , very amazing re-indition
I 100% reccomend this, it is the best Nirvana live album and by far one of the best ALBUMS. And the quitest too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Has Kurt got tourette's in this album?!, May 22 2004
This album is OK, it is creepy though, there are some awful, awful tracks, I mean really bad! AKA "Milk It". But its ok for a live album, MTV unplugged was much better but this isnt a bad album in the Nirvana legacy. Ill list my favourites from this album and rate them out of 5.
Drain You..4
Smells like Teen spirit...5 (1991-early 1992 must've been the only time the band liked to play this!)
Lithium..3
Scentless Apprentice..4.2 (scary, but good)
Heart Shaped-Box...5
Polly..4
tourette's...5!!!!! I LUV THIS VERSION BUT WHAT RUINS IT IS HE DOSENT SAY "moderate rock" AT THE START LIKE ON "IN UTERO" but its just as good.
and thats it, all the rest are average for my likings, I may not just like the actual song.
Its an OK album straight up, but definitley not as near close to MTV unplugges

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Average Pop Music., May 18 2004
This review is from: Innocent Eyes (Audio CD)
"Innocent Eyes" caught my attention early in 2003, I liked the first single, "Born To Try" and I thought it would be an amazing album, and I was right! It is a great album with a mix of ballads, rock and pop music, it is V E R Y good! It is haunting and amazing at the same time, she has one of the best voiced ive ever heard and the songwriting is nice too, I have compiled the Achievment INNOCENT EYES has accomplished In Australia and NZ:
"Born To Try",#1 in Australia and New Zealand and multi-platinum
"Lost Without You", #1 In Australia, #4 in New Zealand and Gold/ multi-platinum
"Innocent Eyes", #1 in Australia (multi-platinum), #12 in New Zealand.
"Not Me, Not I" #1 in Australia and kicked Dido off the #1 spot (mulit-platinum), #18 in New zealand
"Predictable", #1 In Australia (multi platinum), not in NZ Charts yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Proud Of Her, May 18 2004
This review is from: Beautiful Collision (Audio CD)
Bic Rungas 2nd album "Beautiful Collison", one of the highest selling albums in New Zealands music history, over 9 X platinum, is a very beautiful album. It definitley is a Norah Jones-ey album, but not hard out JAZZ, she is a very good songwriter, and the music makes me feel happy-ish. But the songs you really have to look out for on this 9 X platinum album...
When I See You Smile
Get Some Sleep
Something Good
Honest Goodbyes
She Left On A Monday
AND MY FAVOURITE
LISTENING FOR THE WEATHER
So I reccomend this album to anyone who wants to find a different spin on Norah Jones who has been out W A Y longer.
Try It Out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tasty Milkshake of R&B/Hip hop, May 17 2004
This review is from: Tasty (Audio CD)
"Tasty" is an interesting album, this album definitley isnt all "Milkshake"! it has a few radio songs like "Trick Me" and an Alicia Keys/ Janet "Sugar Honey Iced Tea", overall Kelis has done a really cool start to the music charts, I mean she is more mainstream now than "Kaliedescope" and "Wanderland", "Milkshake" is the catchiest damn song out in ages and "Trick me" is just so listenable! I love this, it isnt album of the year, but very cool, and from memory right now was she nominated for a grammy?!?!, oh well very coolm give it a taste, if your not sure try get it out of a libray or something. Very cool, go Kelis!

4.0 out of 5 stars Jessica Simpson - With You, May 17 2004
This review is from: With You (Audio CD)
With You is a nice bubblegum song. It has nice lyrics and the vocals are good. Its damn catchy though, love it or hate it it is VERY catchy. It is a nice song and it deserves all the recognition it has gotten. I personally think "Newlyweds" the tv show kicked off Jessica Simpsons career. Before, she didnt have a #2 album and a top 20 single as big as this. Overall, a nice piece of bubblegum fluff!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Simpsons season EVER! and i mean that!, May 14 2004
Season 4 is really good, I really mean that!. I totally remember this season so vividly from when i was little. This season is really cool and good fo that matter compared to the others befoe, of course season 3 was hilarious and all,but this season had a few different sides to it, it has a moe serious side than the rest and a funnier side, mostly serious. I love this season!,. This season boxed set looks like a goodie aswell, 1993 proved to be a cool year for the simpsons, and I cant wait to bring this DVD home with me!!!
I like the cover for the DVD aswell! THIS IS DEFINITLEY ON MY WISH LIST
