Murder of Innocence: The Tragic Life and Final Rampage of Laurie Dann, the Schoolhouse Killer
Murder of Innocence: The Tragic Life and Final Rampage of Laurie Dann, the Schoolhouse Killer
by Joel Kaplan
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
23 used & new from CDN$ 0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best true crime books i've read, April 9 2004
this is one of the saddest books i ever read.laurie dann was a very troubled mentally ill young woman who went on a shooting spree in a elementary school in 1988 in illinois,usa injuring many and killing one innocent child.this was a tradegy i feel that was very preventable.everybody who had contact with her knew she was deeply disturbed and possibly dangerous.she even stabbed her ex husband with a ice pick in his sleep but without enough evidence she could'nt be charged.the author does a great job on detailing the decline into insanity of this young somewhat attractive lady.for anyone who loves true crime,i highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars i love this album, April 4 2004
This review is from: Deep Purple (Audio CD)
i am not the biggest deep purple fan but i just love this cd.everysong is great but i just love lalena,chasing shadows,painter and one of my favorite tracks by any band blind.blind is just a great track and worth the price of the cd alone.it's worth metioning that rod evans did a superb job on vocals.this guy is a great singer,just as good as ian gillan in my opinion.this is a great cd that's hard not to like.i highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars my favorite megadeth cd, April 4 2004
i own all of megadeths cds and this is the best one just slightly better than rust in peace.the album starts off with into the lungs of hell {a great kickass instrumental,perhaps not the best way to start off the album but still a great song}set the world afire is a rather good track but one the weakest on the cd,anarchy in the u.k. is well done but not quite up to par with the sex pistols version,mary jane is a great song[one of my personal favs],502 is my favorite track on this cd and my favorite megadeth track after go to hell ,in my darkest hour is my second favorite track on the cd,liar is another great track and the album ends with hook in mouth{which is the worst track on the cd,not terrible but just average when compared to the other tracks on this great cd]my advice is ,if you like good in your face metal,then this cd will not disappoint you.great cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent metal cd, April 4 2004
This review is from: Jugulator (Audio CD)
i truly don't understand some of the folks who are bashing this cd,this is a fine cd and in fact one of the better judas priest cds.i agree that ripper owens is ain't no rob halford but the man is a damn fine singer in his own right.kk downing and glenn tipton also really lets loose on this cd and the results are one of thier better guitar playing cd's.this is also proberly the heaviest priest albums ever.standout tracks are everysong,not one weak track here,everysong kicks a..,my favorites are though death row,jugulator,burn in hell and my favorite track on the cd cathedral spires.this is a great cd that i think any serious fan of metal would enjoy.i highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars why so many low ratings, April 3 2004
This review is from: Rush (Audio CD)
this is my favorite rush album alongside fly by night,grace under pressure and moving pictures.sure the lyrics are lame but when lifeson and lee are rockin like this it makes up for the dumbass lyrics.the cd starts with finding my way{great vocals by geddy lee on this track,cool song,great way to start the album]need some love has the dumbest lyrics on the whole album but it's still a rather decent rock track.take a friend seems to be disliked by many fans but i just happen to love that song[it's my favorite track on this album,also cool drumming by john rutsey on this song}here again is a great track[this track is worth the price of the cd alone}what your doing is the low point on this disc,very poor track.in the mood is decent but nothing great.before and after is a great tune,very underrated track.working man is my second favorite song on the cd,a definite rush classic.overall this is a pretty good cd all fans of rush and 70's hard rock should own.i highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars oh my god ,this cd is great, March 31 2004
This review is from: Collections (Audio CD)
as a person who usually listens to music by the likes of black sabbath,motorhead etc.i never thought i find myself writing a review for a george jones cd.i first heard this disc about a month ago at a party at my dad's house.he is a huge country fan.i loved it so much the first time i heard it,i had to get it loaned off my father,that was about a month ago and i listen to this cd atleast once a day.i like every track on this disc,white lightnin is awesome,one of my all time favorite tracks,why baby why,the grand tour,tennessee whiskey are all great.the rest of the tracks are also awesome.the only complaint i have about this cd is that some of the songs are rather depressing but that aside ,this is a awesome disc that i would recommend to anyone to buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars most overrated metal album of all time, March 31 2004
This review is from: Metal Health (Audio CD)
[come] on feel the noise and thunderbird are the only decent tracks on this album.the rest of the material is below average.it's beyond me why people consider this album a classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but could have been better, March 29 2004
first off let me tell all you ozzy/dio fanatics that this sabbath release may not be for you for this greatist hits cd covers only the tony martin era of sabbath.martin imo is the best sabbath vocalist ever ,even though i loved them all except glenn hughes.this is a fairly decent greatist hits compilation of martins years with sabbath,but it puzzles me why there ain't any material from the eternal idol album which is the best martin sabbath album after headless cross.surely tracks from the eternal idol cd such as the shining,glory ride or born to lose should have been included on this disc.anno mundi,jerusalem and i witness are other tracks that should have been included here.why they put a track like the battle of tyr on a greatist hits cd is beyond me.still though some of martins best sabbath tunes are included on this disc such as headless cross,the sabbath stones,when death calls and evil eye.overall this is a pretty good introduction cd for anyone unfamiliar with tony martin sabbath.i recommend it to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars the ultimate judas priest album, Feb. 14 2004
This review is from: Sad Wings of Destiny (Audio CD)
the album starts off with victim of changes,great track to start off the album with[halford's vocals are really impressive on this track}the ripper should be considered one of the all time metal classics[this is my favorite priest track ever}the album gets a bit mellow on the next track ,dreamer deceiver[this is a good song but nothing great]deceiver is a great metal track[i can never get enough of that song}prelude is a beautiful instrumental which is well done,tyrant is a great song,genocide is my second favorite track on this cd{this track kicks a..]epitaph is a slow soft tune by priest[alot of people really don't like this song but i just happen to love that song,it's one of my favorites on this disc]the last tune is island of domination which is one of the all time great priest tracks.sad wings of destiny is definitly one of the best metal cd's ever recorded.if you are a fan of metal,then your cd collection isn't complete without sad wings of destiny.

5.0 out of 5 stars there's good reason why this is considered a classic, Feb. 14 2004
i simply cannot put into words how great this cd really is.everysong is a classic.i cannot pick a favorite cause every track is equally excellent.this cd has sold over 26 million copies worldwide,buy this album and you will know why.
