3.0 étoiles sur 5 The most frustrating RJ book, May 19 2004
This review is from: Hosts (Mass Market Paperback)
I'm a Repairman Jack fan. So I enjoyed this book. If you're also a fan, you'll probably enjoy it, too. But many times I wanted to grab author Wilson by the lapels and say, "What the beejeebers are you doing?" Because the subtitle of this book should be, "Repairman Jack gets stupid."
Jack does have several wonderful moments -- with the subplots, especially. But he spends most of this book being uncharacteristically and inexplicably (not to mention unforgiveably) dense. The only rationaliziation for his obtuseness is to stretch the book out, and Wilson is usually above such sloppy plotting.
For any less enjoyable character and writing, this would rate only two stars. Since Jack remains so much fun, this squeaks by with three.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unbelievable!, Dec 3 2002
This review is from: Ambrosia (Audio CD)
An utterly brilliant release. The music is mesmerizing, soaring and clever clever clever, filled with endless surprises. And the mixing by Alan Parsons cannot be described. Parsons is the greatest genius who has ever sat behind a mixing console. You will never appreciate the full magnitude of this CD untill you play it through a high quality amp into a pair of high quality headphones. The richness and clarity of every single note cannot be matched any other way.
This is a band and an album that never got close to the acclaim they deserved. Don't cheat yourself by missing it.
