5.0 étoiles sur 5 funk classic, May 17 2004
Some of my favorite moments from the P-Funk library are contained in this classic. One nation, a huge R&B hit is a great song, with great vocals by George. He was at the top of his form. Groovallegiance is a psychedelic attack that will melt your eardrums, the lead guitar by Michael Hampton is reminiscent of Hendrix, but in another dimension, and if that isn't enough to blow your mind, the funk mob hits us full steam ahead with Who says a funk band can't play rock. If that isn't one hell of a song, I don't know what is. Blows me away every time. Promentalsh*tbackwashpsychosis enema squad is a rainy day groove to "clean your sh*t by" The perfect accompaniment to gettin' your buzz on, whatever that may be. George's silky vocals in the background, and a hilarious speech filled with absurdities that will have you laughing until you realize the joke's on you. (instrumental version also included, killer guitars) "Into you" doesn't really fit in, this reminds me of their early seventies stuff, however I love this song, it really showcases the R&B vocal talent of P-Funk. Cholly is another funny song, with the basic groove stolen from The mothership Connection's "Thumpasaurus Rex" It worked out perfectly, adding vocals to this addictive bass line. Lunchmeataphobia is the only song I usually skip, but the live Maggot Brain is good only for the first minute/ninety seconds, it gets old quick. I think P-Funk is kind of the opposite of the Dead, strong in the studio, but sloppy onstage. I guess a lot of bands back in the seventies couldn't save the drugs/alcohol until AFTER the concert. If you like this one, get 1976's "Hardcore Jollies" as well, more great guitar and super vocals.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I was disappointed, May 16 2004
This review is from: The Fifth Element (DVD)
Gary Oldman is such an amazing actor, but his talents are wasted on this silly movie. Visually, this is quite a spectacle. But the plot is boring and uninteresting. I like Willis and Tucker, too, but both of their characters are just plain annoying. I can see how some people would like this movie, but it just didn,t work for me. Maybe I'll watch it again sometime and like it. Stranger things have happened.

I never get tired of this disc. Great funk, smooth vocals, and never boring. If your reading this and you don't buy it, your making a big mistake.

Tony Rice is the same to bluegrass guitar as Hendrix was to rock guitar or Charlie Parker was to jazz saxophone. An innovator. A genious. I cannot recall hearing more talent in any bluegrass album I've ever heard. Scaggs, Grisman, and Rice all in the same band? Whoa! This is the ULTIMATE bluegrass cd. The ULTIMATE. I don't even need to go over the songs one by one because every single one is true perfection. Rice plays so fluidly, never missing a note, I am floored every time I listen to this cd. Five Stars.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 rest in peace, Brent, May 14 2004
This review is from: Built to Last (Audio CD)
This album was very disappointing for me. I bought it the day it was released and I was very excited, I had seen the Dead perform "Victim" and "Blow away" on their previous tour and I was expecting greatness. The production is good, and Jerry is in fine form, but these songs, with the exceptions of "Victim, Blow away, and Standing on the moon" they just don't make it for me. The rest of the songs are all filler, as far as I'm concerned. Don't think I'm not a Brent fan, I loved Brent and miss him very much. I think that of all the Dead's keyboard players that Brent was the one that had that magical connection with Jerry. Maybe it was the opiates, I don't know but it seems like Brent and Jerry were on the same wavelength, they were in perfect harmony with each other. Brent WAS a Deadhead, unlike Vince or Bruce. Unfortunately, Brent was not a very strong songwriter, with the exception of "Blow away." This is a great song that worked very well live. Check out "Blow away" on the Dead's "Dozin' at the Knick" set and you'll see what I mean. Brent really kicked ass at that show, man. He is and will be missed for a long, long, time by many Deadheads like myself that appreciated his sparkling, cosmic playing that worked so well with my favorite band of all time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 His name is Bobby he looks like a potato., May 14 2004
This review is from: One Size Fits All (Audio CD)
There are so many great FZ albums. This counts as one of my three favorites, the other two being Hot Rats and Joe's Garage. OSFA is a very interesting collection of songs that have nothing to do with each other (except for the sofas of course) but all fit together well to make a classic album. Inca Roads' guitar solo is one of my faves from FZ. Pojamma people is awesome, pure brilliance with another killer solo by FZ. I have to say San Berdino is one of my favorite FZ songs of all time. I can't recall anything else in the FZ library that is simalar to this song. It really stands out. The lyrics are very funny and the guitars rule. You gotta listen to this song with headphones as loud as you can stand. Those guitars will melt your eardrums. I also love the Sofa #1 and #2. Musical poetry. Get this disc. You need it, trust me.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another knockout for Simon/Lemmon, May 14 2004
This is the third in a trio of classic comedies written by Neil Simon and starring(onscreen) Jack Lemmon. This movie delivers laugh after laugh without slapsick, and without the cheesiness of some of Simon's later works. (The Goodbye Girl) This movie earns five stars from me not only because it's a great comedy, but this movie gives the viewer a heartfelt lesson in humanity as well. See it at all costs. Worth owning, too, I've all but worn my copy out.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm not the Indian rubber man.........................., May 14 2004
This review is from: Real Life (Widescreen) (DVD)
This may be the funniest movie I've ever seen. I have watched it countless times and I never get tired of it. You have to watch this more than once to catch everything. Albert is SO obnoxious and SO egotistical to the point of utter madness. One of the funniest scenes is when Dr. Cleary abandons the project. You've got to see it to believe it. There are so many unforgettable funny lines in this film, too. "I'm not a scientist, I'm a comedian, I can afford the luxury of honesty." SEE THIS MOVIE------STUDY IT------WORSHIP IT

4.0 étoiles sur 5 ........and a small diet cola., May 13 2004
This review is from: 5 000 000 (Audio CD)
Amazing, simply amazing. When I first heard this 12 years ago I was instantly hooked. Big ol' gold belt, Do the claw, and especially Stir it up are downright hilarious. Even after all these years and playing this time after time, it's still funny. But even more amazing is the fact that this was ONE TIGHT BAND. Brilliant guitars, loud drums, and incredible production tells you these guys are a serious band. I may not win a lot of popularity contests for saying this, but, with the exception of "Nobody's Fault" I like their versions of the Zep songs better. Yeah, you read right. And their "Train kept a rollin" blows Aerosmith away. Just remember that everybody is entitled to their own opinion. LONG LIVE TORTELVIS

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Cream of the crop, May 12 2004
This review is from: Dick's Picks 15 (Audio CD)
This is a wonderful show from 1977, my personal favorite year of GD shows. The "Peggy-o" is worth the price of the whole set. Absolutely ASTOUNDING. I also have never heard a more beautiful "Half Step." The only flaw on this set is a sloppy but still enjoyable "He's Gone." 1977 was the year that "Terrapin Station" was new and "Estimated Prophet" and "Terrapin" in this set are played perfectly. God, I wish I could travel back in time and go to this show. With New Riders and The Marshall Tucker Band opening, this would have been an unforgettable experience for me. I urge any Dead fan to buy this, it is great. A treasure.
