Marrow Of The Spirit ~ Agalloch
5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year?, Oct. 22 2011
Agalloch never cease to amaze me.
I have been a listener since their debut album and while Marrow of the Spirit shares very few similarities to their past work it is, by far, my favorite piece.
Guitar melodies have always been at the forefront of Agalloch's writing and Marrow exhibits some of the finest folk, post-rock, and black metal compositions to date.
The opening track is melancholia at it's best. It sets the tone of darkness and despair that encompasses the remainder of the album.

This is an album that doesn't grab you immediately. Perhaps it never will if… Read more
Dr. No
Dr. No should exist as the blueprint for all Bond films.

There are very few cheap gags,even fewer ridiculously over the top stunts, and almost no toys or gadgets.

To me, this is Bond at its best, and definitely deserves a spot on my top 10 series' favorites list.

The film strayed a bit from the original book, but never so far that it became lost.

This product, itself, has been revamped and released half a dozen times for the dvd format. This, particular version has very few special features.

If you are looking for a more in depth copy of this movie (or any in the 007 series)I would suggest purchasing the boxed set versions… Read more
