5.0 out of 5 stars The wait is over!, January 29, 2002
This review is from: Tron (Audio CD)
The score to Tron is some of the best music Wendy Carlos has ever written. When Tron-bashing became popular a few years ago, people who thought the movie was corny could never say anything bad about the score (which is more than the classic notes made famous by the Midway arcade game). Carlos combines analog and digital synthesizers along with a real orchestra to create one of the best, yet somehow overlooked soundtracks of our time. Great work from one of the most important synthesizer pioneers.

1.0 out of 5 stars My, how the mighty have fallen., May 13, 2001
This review is from: Napalm & Silly Putty (Hardcover)
I've been a fan of Carlin for over 20 years now and I waited for this book to be released. I went to the bookstore, skimmed through it, and put it back on the shelf. "I'm glad O.J. got off.", he says in one of a few original parts. Did I miss the joke? Carlin once said it is his job to know where the line is, deliberately cross it, but make the audience glad you took them with you. With Napalm And Silly Putty, he's going to be spending a lot of time by himself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Band, Good Job Rhino!, November 22, 2000
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great DVD of the world's coolest band. Before today's synchronized dancing, corporate-made acts, The Cars actually played instruments live on stage. I always wondered what it would be like to see The Cars in a small club before they became too famous, and this DVD is it! The filming is up close and captures what each member is doing live. What is particularly interesting is that the songs sound the way they do on the albums, and Rhino left in the spaces between the songs so you can see the knob turning and effects-box stepping, just like you were at the show. I'm glad that Rhino did not over produce the footage, and just let it run. This DVD also makes me a little sad to remember that music and performing live will never be like this again.

5.0 out of 5 stars More important today, August 30, 2000
This review is from: Switched-On Boxed Set (Audio CD)
The early work of the most important synthesizer pioneer has more value today than it did 30 years ago. Like everything, electronic music has reached the street level with cheap keyboards in the wrong hands. The Switched-On box set reminds us of Carlos' own rules; that you can learn more about composing by listening to the classics than you can by reading hardware and software manuals. The books that come with the CD's are worth the price alone. Only Wendy Carlos is brave enough to share her secrets of the synthesizer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking the shell of KlingKlang!, September 4, 1999
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Tim Barr has written the 2nd major book about Kraftwerk, and if there were 10 more books about this band, we still would not know everything about the men who invented modern music. Barr has done an amazing job when you remember that the members of Kraftwerk, and the people who are closest to them, rarely give straightforward answers. Where the first book about Kraftwerk focuses around quotes from Ralf and Karl, Barr's book has input from Wolfgang, right down to his own photo collection. Perhaps what is most amazing is that Barr has cracked the shell of KlingKlang and tells what little is known about the studio itself. This is the stuff I have always wanted to know, and Karl even gives a few sentences about the robo-voice. It seems that many of the quotes in this book have been credited to past magazine articles that I have memorized, so it is at least nice to have them all in one place. Maybe one day in my lifetime the KlingKlang studio will be on display somewhere, but until then, thank you Tim Barr for getting me closer.
