Falling Skies Season 3 [HD]
Falling Skies Season 3 [HD]
Price: $23.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Different dynamic, not for the better, September 4, 2014
Essentially the season where the group joins with the larger resistance, soon Mason elected president, changing the dynamic of the show from a small group of rebels to sort of post-apocalyptic West Wing. Worth watching but the series lost the freshness and urgency of the first 2 seasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bankruptcy, explained., June 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As a bankruptcy lawyer, I sometimes teach people how to file their own bankruptcy and this book has proven to be an indispensable tool for my classes. It is also helpful for my individual consultations with persons wondering whether bankruptcy is the right choice for them. The authors use plain, non-technical language to help lay persons, and even experts, better understand the purposes and processes of bankruptcy in light of the most recent changes to the law. This is an excellent guide to bankruptcy that anyone contemplating it should read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Significant Debut, June 21, 2006
This review is from: Opiate (Audio CD)
One of two great rock debuts from 1992 - the other one being the Rage Against The Machine ("RATM") debut - this EP came out a year after the grunge movement threatened to make all rock not from Seattle irrelevant. Yet this band was not grunge, and like RATM they were from So. Cal. The songs were unlike any other band, in that they seemed to concoct a new version of intelligent angst with Sabbath-influenced rock, played by a highly disciplined group of musicians who played more tightly as a unit than any other band this side of thrash. Another difference between Tool and grunge, however, was that there was an element of progessive, experimental music here, which the band would flesh out in their subsequent releases.

Arguably, the most unique thing about Tool on this record was their singer, Maynard James Keenan. He had an ability to convey self-loathing, angry, socially aware, generation X lyrics in a way that seemed fresh. He also had a crystal-clear, ferocious voice. Indeed, the live tracks, "Cold and Ugly" and "Jerk-off" were testament to Maynard's competance as a live singer. A new rock god was born.

This was a significant debut from the band that forged the way for alternative metal/prog rock. Most subsequent metal bands were influenced by these guys. The live tracks, in particular, are reason to pick up this EP as they represent the band's "Live at Leeds" moment.
