1.0 out of 5 stars Plagued with tech issues. Ubisoft is no help., November 6, 2012
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had high hopes for this game, it looks like a lot of fun.

Unfortunately, ubisoft support is non-existent. I have yet to be able to get rocksmith to play sound consistently. The one time I did get the sound to play for a session I got stuck on the last section of the guitar tuning (documented bug). Steam has me at 118 minutes played and I have not even played a single song in game. Incredibly frustrating experience, would not recommend this game for PC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another incredible series from HBO, January 5, 2007
This review is from: Entourage: Season 1 (DVD)
All I need to say is this: It makes you smile when something good happens to them, and you end up caring about the characters. This only happens with the very best.

Best show out there until (insert next HBO show - currently The Wire) showed up. HIGHLY Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless, January 5, 2007
This review is from: The Wire: Season 1 (DVD)
Give this show a try, please. At least rent the first DVD of this set to see if you like it.

The character and story development is unparalleled. I'm often disappointed with movies and regular TV shows because of the lack of character development, but Lorenzo and crew give more depth than a book.

You haven't seen good TV until you've watched HBO TV. HIGHLY Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't have said it better....., January 5, 2007
I'm going to have to agree/back up fellow reviewer Adam N. Villani who hit the point exactly."5 stars for original film, 2 stars for 'Director's Cut'"

I haven't watched the Directors Cut once for more than 5 minutes because it's that bad. Its just Floyd music played to random scenes from space. Thank God, however, the DVD also contains the original concert which I would say is their best "live" performance ever. It's definitely worth the price if only because of the original version, just make sure that's the one you watch first.

HIGHLY Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best live CD you'll ever own, now go buy the DVD, January 5, 2007
This review is from: Pulse (Audio CD)
There is only one thing I don't like about this recording. The woman they used for great gig (actually I believe they used two) just doesn't do a very good job at all. Normally one of my favorite songs on dark side, I usually skip it when listening to this.

That being said however, every other track is all that you have come to expect from Pink Floyd, whether live or otherwise.

Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST own for anybody who likes Pink Floyd, and even if you don't you'll still enjoy Pulse, January 5, 2007
This review is from: Pink Floyd - Pulse (DVD)
Beautifully produced with incredible sound. Storm came through again with a wonderful design, and I'm not quite sure who edited and mixed this, but a brilliant job on their part.

This concert was played in 1994, so this of course means that Roger Waters was replaced by Guy Pratt on bass. Guy is perfect on bass, and his voice works perfectly with the band. I especially like Run Like Hell when David and Guy switch on and off singing.

The laser show is unmatched regarding scale and detail, but I wish they would focus on (for example) David's fingers during the comfortably numb solo rather than the laser show. The crowd is as amazing as you'd imagine it to be, and there's no better feeling than the one you get listening to WYWH with everybody singing along.

HIGHLY Recommended. Any collection is not complete without this diamond.

3.0 out of 5 stars Vernon Fitch certainly did no slacking with his research, January 5, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is THE most detailed and expansive resource for Pink Floyd info. That said, it's a true encyclopedia. Don't buy it expecting to read through it, because although its really cool to know specifically what guitar David played in WYWH, you'll find yourself skipping over the page to the next section.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best of the trio, January 5, 2007
This review is from: The Madcap Laughs (Audio CD)
As an avid fan of Pink Floyd, I make it my business to own every CD whether solo or otherwise. The Madcap Laughs is by far Syd's best outside of Pink Floyd, so get this first rather than Opel or Barrett.

Definitely Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars What do I have to say to make you buy this book??, January 4, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Its incredible, best book about Pink Floyd you will ever read.

If you're a fan, whether it is an avid fan or a casual fan, you will enjoy this book. It features wonderful details about the especially elusive Syd years, and it starts well before Pink Floyd was still The Pink Floyd Sound. It tells the entire story of how the band was formed, their live band stage, their success with dark side, all the way until the end of their career.

Highly Recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretentious, January 4, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Which One's Pink? (Paperback)
I consider myself a huge fan of Pink Floyd, but this book was not interesting at all. Phil Rose takes it upon himself to talk about the meaning of specific notes and patterns in the songs. For example (paraphrased) it went from B to G, and although the listener expects the D it just goes back to the B. I suppose some might be interested in this, but it's not for me. I want to read about what the album means, and although he does go into this I would have to imagine there are better books out there for this purpose.
