4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Appetite, but a Classic Nonetheless, April 26, 2004
This review is from: Use Your Illusion I (Audio CD)
After waiting 4 years to release a follow-up to the fantastic Appetite For Destruction, GNR released a double set of albums together. They were called Use Your Illusion. This album, UYI1, is not as ear-blasting rock n roll as Appetite. It is actually quite bluesy. There is nothing wrong with that, but I think on some songs, they take the blues influence too far. many of the songs are absolutely fabulous, like Right Next Door To Hell, Dust N Bones, and Garden of Eden, but some are weak and filler like You Ain't The First and Don't Cry. Although the latter was a huge Top 40 smash, I still don't like it. It sounds lame. anyway i thought this is a cool album and any hard rock fan should get it. For fans of heavier stuff, go get Appetite.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Party Metal, April 26, 2004
This review is from: I Get Wet (Audio CD)
The savior of heavy metal! Just when metal was at its darkest, drowned out by horrible nu metal bands like Korn and Limp Bizkit, Andrew arrives on the scene, with ear-damaging, screaming rock n roll. He mixes dance pop with pure screaming metal on this album. I love the synthesizers mixes with Andrew's screaming and thunderous guitars. He shows that it it possible to save a genre from itself, Influncing bands like Jet and the Darkness. he truly is obsessed with partying and fun, which is nice because it can lift you up when your'e sad. The lyrics are happy and peppy, and so is the music. If you love alternative and nu metal, you cannot buy this. if you hate it just as much as I do, BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good CD, April 21, 2004
This review is from: Screaming for Vengeance (Audio CD)
I'm gonna give u a little rundown on this album here. Okay?

The Hellion/Electric Eye: Very good opener for a bombastic album like this. Love the Electric Eye riff.
Riding On The Wind: Very cool song. Great to drive to.
Bloodstone: Not the best song on the album. Nothing to go nuts over
(Take These) Chains: Kinda commercial, but very good nontheless.
Pain And Pleasure: Wonderful, catchy chorus amid cool riffin'.
Screaming For Vengeance: A very heavy, speedy song. Definitely a metal classic.
Youv'e Got Another Thing Comin': The most famous Priest song. A wonderful metallic groove.
Fever: The very definition of melodic metal. Cool chorus and dazzling lyrics.
Devil's Child: Kinda commercial, but exremely good.
Prisoner Of Your Eyes: Another dazzling melodic song. One of the best bonus tracks ever to be put on an album.
Overall, this is a great album. A little commericial at times, but nonetheless great. Go and buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Progressive Metallica, April 21, 2004
This review is from: Master of Puppets (Audio CD)
After playing deafening, all-out thrash on 1984's Ride the Lightning, Metallica went for a more subtle, progressive approach. Although this CD does have its 100 MPH moments, some of the material is moody and a bit slowed down like Orion and The Thing That Should Not Be. The ballad, Sanitaruim (Welcom Home), is one of Metallica's most progressive moments ever. Also one of their best. But on many tracks, the progressiveness was subtle enough to please the thrash fans, while appealing to a different crowd. My word : buy this album, you will buying a piece of metallic history.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dumb and Overrrated, April 21, 2004
(...)We had seen the Toy Story movies and Chicken Run and were anxious to see this one, which is supposed to be one of the greatest cartoons of all time. Not so at all. It's a stinking musical! Every other second there is a song. The most annoying are 'Morning Report', ' Circus of Life', and 'Hakuna Matata'. The movie is quite obnoxious, with its vulgar characters and its violence.(...) I can't believe it received a G rating. Should be more like PG, I think. If you are looking for a good, wholesome cartoon for your children, pass this one up. Get the Toy story movies instead. Those are funny and entertaining, with good morals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Fuzz-Rock, April 21, 2004
This review is from: R (Audio CD)
I bought this album after hearing Lost Art Of Kepping A Secret on KNAC, thinking it would be okay. How wrong I was. The album is like fuzzed out stoner rock thrown in with heavy metal-ish screaming and thunderous guitars. This album has true power. Anyone who doubts me must listen to Tension Head, Feel Good Hit Of The Summer, Monsters In The Parasol, or Lost Art Of Keeping A Secret. Even my heavy metal- hating family said it was catchy and good. For the true definition of pure rock, buy this. Also try Stone Temple Pilots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Heavy Bliss, April 17, 2004
This review is from: Number of the Beast (Audio CD)
This is an album to end all albums. Every second of it is heavy and headbanging. It is world renowned as a metal album and I can see why. It should be right up there with Back In Black, Apeetite For Destruction and Nevermind. Some of my favorite songs are 22 Acacia Avenue, The Prisoner, Run To The Hills, and Invaders. The guitar playing is awesome, Bruce's singing is wonderful and overall, this is one of favorite albums... ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Weird Ozzy, April 16, 2004
This review is from: Ozzmosis (Audio CD)
This is one of Ozzy's most weird albums. Kinda reminds me of GNR's Use your Illusion II. Odd, sweeping epics abound like See You On the Other Side, Tommorow, and Ghost Behind My Eyes. Doesn't sound at all like No More Tears, but it very good, nonetheless. It was very succesful for Ozzy, but i prefer his 80's music better. Overall, I would reccomend this CD to any metalhead, but if ya wanted to start on Ozzy, I'd go to NO Rest For The Wicked or Blizzard Of Ozz first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Hilarious, April 16, 2004
This review is from: A Christmas Story (DVD)
This is the funniest movie ever made period. I dont see how anyone could not laugh at the hilarious exploits of nine-year-old Ralphie and his quest for a BB Gun. While his old man shouts gibberish at the furnace and his old lady tries to get his kid brother to eat, Ralphie comes up with plan after plan, every one failing spectacularly. If you wanna see the funniest movie ever made, you gotta get this one, because you will truly laugh your pants off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest Hair Metal CD Ever., April 16, 2004
This review is from: Out of the Cellar (Audio CD)
If you want a cd that sums up hair metal in like 9 songs, this is the one. Every song you can just imagine being played in some Sunset Strip club. While many might say the title for greatest glam cd should go to The Crue's Shout at the Devil, or Poison's Look What The Cat Dragged In, this is actually better.
Every song has a catchy chorus worthy singing along to (just listen to Your'e In Trouble if ya doubt me) and conjours up images of spandex, makeup, and hairspray.
