5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!, November 20, 2009
Wow! And I thought Random Album Title was good! His sophomore album is even better... Deadmau5 has created another album that you can listen to at home like it was a rock or pop album but that still gives you the same rush as if you were at a club dancing. Interesting music that`s fun to listen to and very danceable. Beats you just can`t get out of your head. This is the best thing to ever happen to electro/house.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you like QOTSA, September 21, 2009
This review is from: Humbug (Audio CD)
I didn't even know Josh Homme had produced this album and found myself thinking -- boy this is hard and riffy, much more like a Queens of the Stone Age album than an Arctic Monkeys. I love QOTSA, but for completely different reasons than I liked the Monkeys. It's an OK album but it has no energy. It sounds like they shot a whole bunch of heroin before recording. Let's hope the next one is a return to proper style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great album! If you like interesting loud music, buy it..., July 13, 2009
I can see why some of AOF fans are disappointed -- in that the band evolves into a more grown up sound with this album. But for us fans who are also growing up, what a treat! This is their best album since their self-titled debut. We all loved George Pettit's screaming at first but it would have gotten old and tired if that's all that this band was able to give us... and they realize this. The band manages to stay true to their loud roots but pushing the sound in many different directions -- shades of U2, of Tool, of At the Drive-In... makes for terribly interesting listening. And damn good music to rock out to, too!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great but needs editing!!, April 18, 2009
There is still no good comprehensive textbook of neurology on the market. This book is miles ahead of Bradley by having more useful pictures and diagrams. However, there is a serious lack of style cohesion across chapters that dramatically limits its usefulness. Some chapters are a total gem and approach the ideal textbook of neurology in terms of ease of explanation and comprehensiveness. Other chapters are rambling, poorly structured, or lacking crucial topics. Hoping Dr. Schapira will do some more careful editing for the second edition, this book could eventually replace Bradley!

5.0 out of 5 stars What we always wanted from the Pumpkins, July 27, 2007
This review is from: Zeitgeist (Audio CD)
The disclaimers, first off: When I was younger I was a HUGE SP fan, ever since Gish. I would still take Siamese Dream as my "desert island" album. That said, I knew Corgan's limitations. No one who has any musical talent actually likes his voice, but it somehow fit in over his sonic walls of guitar overdubs. This is why I was mezmerized at Lollapalooza. And this is also where I realized that Jimmy Chamberlain was the most under-rated part of the band.

Flash-forward to "Adore": What happened! Jimmy's been replaced by a drum machine (!) and the sonic walls of guitar are gone. All we are left with are Billy's over-reachingly pompous "poetic" lyrics and horrible voice overtop of some lame keyboards. Moreover, in concert these guys look so bored that I walk out halfway through their set.

So now Zeitgeist -- yes it's not Siamese Dream but no disc will ever be that again. But it IS very good. It contains everything that a rock fan ever wanted from the Pumpkins: Driving, thunderous drumming from Jimmy, and sonic walls of overdubbed guitar from Billy that actually somehow make his voice work. Backing off on the whiny "oh why is me" lyrics and letting us read a little bit more between the lines. All the pop music fans who liked the pumpkins will find this album much too rock'n'roll, but after seeing what happens to the Pumpkins without rock'n'roll, thank god this is the album they put out now! This is the album that should have followed Mellon Collie, and as to those who say that this is only "half" the pumpkins, were James Iha and D'Arcy ever really more than window dressing anyway?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album. If you want "vintage" OLP then buy that!, September 20, 2005
Musicians last either because they repeat the same gimmick for 50 years (see James Brown) or because they evolve. The latter is precisely what OLP has always done. I was a huge fan from the very first day I heard "The Birdman" on MuchMusic and this band has survived the post-Nirvana decade like only few others have, by constantly re-inventing themselves. To say that OLP have "lost" their sound is truly stupid. Every single OLP album has had its OWN unique sound and this one is no different. And like every OLP album, this one is well-crafted and polished. And it makes for damn fine rock music, too. Everybody will have their own favourite OLP album (mine is SM) but if you really appreciate OLP, there's no way you can not like any of their albums, especially this one. 21st century rock n' roll with some heart behind it like so few are capable of these days...
