5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another great power Trio -- SMC!!, June 26, 2014
This review is from: So U (Audio CD)
Just add Schon, Mendoza, and Castronovo to the list of new power trios that include the likes of Winery Dogs and California Breed.
Quite a variety of song styles, and everyone shares in the vocal duties. And I gotta say, with Deen on vocals, the two songs "Serenity" and "Love Finds a Way" are WAY better than all of the songs on the last Journey album put together. Seriously, these guys need to just form their own group.

3.0 out of 5 stars Was hoping for full HD quality, March 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It should be noted that this release is 26 episodes on 2 Blu-Ray discs. That's 13 episodes per disc. Normally, a Blu-Ray anime release of this many episodes would be spread out across 3 discs (9+9+8 or 10+10+6) in order to maintain quality. But instead of 1080p, this release is 1080i. I should have figured that out before I ordered this set.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a shame, February 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Although the selection of models is quite nice, and the book is very thick, the quality of some of the pictures is really bad. It looks like some of them were scanned from old magazines or were enlarged from some low-rez .JPG files downloaded from the internet. Or maybe frame captures from VHS video. I pre-ordered this book months ago, hoping for a good product. I have purchased other books published by Edition-Skylight before, and have always been pleased with the photos. What a let down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkly Vampires and more!, January 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
OK, I LOVE all of the shorts the RiffTrax crew have done, including the ones on this release.
But the BEST thing about this release is music used for the DVD menu -- Bill Corbett singing "Sparkly Vampires"!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Works but overpriced, November 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Way overpriced for the quality -- didn't last very long.
The buffing side wore away after only a few uses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just for drummers, January 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I know this DVD was put out by DrumChannel.com, but all 4 guys get equal time -- it's not all centered on Portnoy.
Sheehan, MacAlpine, and Portnoy are just great -- and nothing too over the top.
I'm not too big of a Sherinian fan, but I think in this setting, he works out quite well.
And the selection of songs is quite diverse -- a very good mix.
The interviews with each artists are also great, especially for folks unfamiliar with each artist's background.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit buggy -- needs work, July 30, 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The port to the PC needs a LOT of work.
Unlike any of my other games, this game crashes quite frequently.
My PC is just over a year old, and has plenty of CPU, memory, and graphics horsepower.
Yet, the only way I was able to complete the game was using a beta video driver from nVidia and setting the resolution to the lowest setting (800 x 600).
Tech support from WB Games was not very helpful (provided the usual suggestions like disabling certain startups and reinstalling the game).

Having said that, I think the best part of this game is getting to use other DC super heroes.
And with Superman, you get to fly around Gotham -- while the (John Williams) Superman theme music plays.
Maybe this will lead to a Justice League Lego game.

4.0 out of 5 stars ELP Live -- the Cozy Powell version, November 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sprocket Sessions (Audio CD)
Not a bad recording for a "bootleg".
Great timepiece from the brief period where power-drummer Cozy Powell was sitting behind the kit instead of Carl Palmer.
Different drumming styles but still great.

My only complaint is that "Lucky Man" was reduced to just the Emerson solo -- no verses or chorus.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice filter - nice price, November 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought a pair of these for use with a CoolerMaster chassis.
The fit was just right.
The only problem I ran into is that I had to purchase some additional mounting hardware.
The included screws are fine if one has a fan on the other side.
But my application has installing the filter only (I didn't need any more fans).

3.0 out of 5 stars For HOL fans only, November 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Anthology (Audio CD)
There are a few good gems on here, but not a CD that I want to listen to on a regular basis.

And on the live tracks, Lanny's guitar is a bit out of tune -- a shame really.
I guess a little too much action on the whammy bar without a guitar switch out.
