5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading, September 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I rarely write reviews, but this is the best fitness book I have ever read - period. It's a must read for anyone who's past the beginner stage of weight training, plateau'd, and wants to get to that next level (and let's face it, start to get shredded like Zyzz and/or pack on serious size gains like GH15 [only without the steroids] ... at least I did).

If you're reading this, you know what it is, you know what it reads like, the hype that surrounded the book, etc. So far, not one person shared their results (at least that I could find in a quick scan of the reviews). I just finished Phase I and it already exceeded all expectations.

Quick Background -
Bro who's been doing variations of your typical bodybuilding routines for some years (but never really followed the diet very closely). Hit a plateau a couple years back and couldn't break through it. Before I started, I was about 184 lbs and 13% bf.

Results So Far -
Five weeks later (followed the diet VERY closely [this is key]), I'm one week into Phase II, and my body is almost unrecognizable. I'm now 170 lbs and about 9.5% body fat. No doubt in my mind I'm going to be shredded by the time the time the this is over.

My Personal Take On the Book (Not the Workout Regimen) -
The book is actually a lifestyle design book that uses fitness as a vehicle to get that message across (95% of everything written on this book completely misses that). Despite the fact that he goes out of his way to come across as your typical meathead at the local gym, John Romaniello is a very (VERY) smart guy who knows what he's talking about. He won me over as a fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Just Don't Make Bands Like This Anymore, November 14, 2006
This review is from: Not of This World (Audio CD)
Its loud. It has two Danzig covers. It rocks. These bands are a very (VERY) welcome breath of fresh air considering the scenes they come from. Other bands need to take note.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its okay, June 8, 2006
This review is from: Decemberunderground (Audio CD)
I expected more and something a little more original. Sure these guys always wore their influences in bold print on their black t-shirts, but this was a bit much. You can hear a very (VERY) heavy influence of Depeche Mode's Violator and Children of God era of the Swans. Mix that with some catchy Green Day like hooks, and that's the latest AFI album.

Don't get me wrong. Its an okay record. Better than something than I could have come up with. I'm curious to hear where they go from here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy This Record!, December 27, 2005
This review is from: II (Audio CD)
I saw these guys play for about 15 people at CBGB last summer -- it was handsdown one of the best performances I ever saw to an nearly empty room.

I find it offensive that they get slapped with the "hardcore" label. They're a band that plays for the love of their own music while not being preachy about it. Very few bands that wave the banner of "hardcore" can even hold a candle to these guys.

Something tells me we're going to be hearing a lot more from this band in the not-so-distant future.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dear Jerry Only ..., October 12, 2005

Dear Jerry Only --

Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse than you selling Misfits cowboy hats, it did. Please go away.

Thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get This Record!, September 13, 2005
This review is from: Perfect Pitch Black (Audio CD)
Even though this is a collection of the demos they had floating around for the last few years, its a VERY solid Cave In release. This is the album that they should have put out after Jupiter.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not the Misfits!, October 13, 2003
This review is from: Project 1950 (Audio CD)
Okay -- here's the required part of the review.
Danzig was the Misfits, they're awful with out him blah, blah, blah ...
Also ... have you noticed how many of used copies of this cd are for sale? Seeing that so many people are trying to get rid of this cd should give you a hint of how bad it is.
They really should change their name to something along the lines of 'Misfits 3000 From Outer Space'. It would be fitting to have a stupid name for a stupid band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this CD !, July 27, 2003
There's not to much I can say about these guys that hasn't been said in the other reviews - these guys are loud, and along with the vocals makes it easily comparable to early Rollins Band (which is a good thing). Dare I even say you can hear hints of Black Sabbath as well?
They also do nothing to change their method of attack. Their songs show no secrets of where they're going, there's nothing lightning fast, no "cookie monster" vocals, no solos, you get the point. Think of steamroller that's slowly crushing everything.
Okay .. you get the idea.
This record is well worth checking out if your fan of heavy music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece., March 8, 2003
This review is from: Danzig (Audio CD)
This is without question Glenn Danzig in one of his (many) finest hours. If you're as much as curious about the world of Danzig outside of the Misfits (and AFI's overt worship of him) this CD is a great way to get introduced.
