4.0 out of 5 stars Put them in the Iron Maiden, January 27, 2011

This review is from: Isle Of Avalon (MP3 Music)
'El Dorado' and 'Isle of Avalon' are 2 of the best Maiden songs I've heard and Maiden has a lot of great songs and still remains the best live act I've ever seen.

The 3 studio songs are pretty much throwaways except maybe 'Nightmare', I bought it for the live tracks which are awesome. Bands don't put enough live albums. Live music is the purest sound of a band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grunge Metallica, June 6, 2003
This review is from: St. Anger (Audio CD)
Metallica who speed metalled through the late 80's and slowed a little in the 90's has found the Grunge sound in the new millenium. I guess with new bassist Robert Trujillo it makes sense. He has worked with Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell and Ozzy Osbourne. It is an ambitious album to say the least. I enjoy the fact that the Frisco quartet tries to keep it fresh with each outing. The double cover discs 'Garage, Inc.' is one of my favorites as well as the surprising turn with the SF Orchestra for 'S&M' which is very powerful. St. Anger is a new sound but familiar music wise. The first single 'St. Anger' is very sound, but I like the intriquite 'Dirty Window' which sounds a lot like Soundgarden. 'Shoot Me Again' follows the same formula of booming base riffs with the title track. The last few songs sound more Metallicaesque with 'The Unnamed Feeling', 'Purify' and 'All Within My Hands' in which the last is the best amoung them. 'Sweet Amber' is a more popish metal, but still a cool tune. I didn't real care for the first track 'Frantic' or 'Invisible Kid', but maybe they'll grow on me over time.
Rock On!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now that's Chicago, February 14, 2003
As a huge fan of the stage production, I was expecting a disaster with the film and soundtrack, but I was very happy to be wrong. Not only did director Rob Marshall stylize the numbers into fantasy sequences, he blends them in seeminglessly. The best effect was the drip, guard step and fingernail tap on the cellbars to lead into 'Cellblock Tango'. The puppet show visualization in 'We Both Reached for the Gun' was the best choreographed/effect laden scene that I have seen in recent memory. All songs were on par with the 1995 stage revival except for John C. Reilly's brilliant agonizing rendition of 'Mr. Cellophane', which was superior.
The only disappointment I found was the absence of the bitterly humorous Velma Kelly number, 'I Know a Girl' which would have taken place between the time Roxie says that she's pregnant and the doctor "verifying" it. Other than that it is a brilliant film and soundtrack.
