Lord Vishnu's Love Handles: A Spy Novel (Sort Of) by Will Clarke
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, April 27 2003
I bought this book while surfing amazon one day, and found it hard to believe that every one of its ratings was 5 stars.

Automatic for the People ~ R.E.M.

I will not go through every song and repeat the same adjectives over and over. With REM, there are not enough words to go around. Nightswimming was once my favorite song on the album, it is so beautiful and addicting. Stipe's voice are enchanting. Yet I listened to the CD again and realized some forgotten classics. Man on the Moon, although (after Everybody hurts) is very common, one has to see behind the movie and the lyrics and realize the actual beauty of the song. It's as though the band put so much thought into each and every note. Some people say… Read more
