5-0 out of 5 stars INSANE THRASHCORE !!!!
On this album,Ice switches to a thrashcore style lovers of the style will go mad about.The song are mega fast,with furious social lyrics and full of hatred.If you're into thashcore
and dig bands like Ratos De Porao,get this one at one.It suffers from some degree of dynamiccompressionthough,
but if you can correct that,it'll blow your brains againt the nearest wall

3-0 out of 5 stars Sophomore Slump Blues
BC's 1994 sophomore follow-up to their 1992 "killer" debut, suffers from the annoying "sophomore slump blues". And that is no lie. Where their 1992 debut is the perfect metal concept story about life and death on the streets of LA. Their Born Dead flow does have a cohesive, consistent flow like their debut, meaning there are some unmemorable tracks here and does not have the finesse of their debut. The CD starts off with another BC sing-along-anthem Body M/F Count. There it's the lackluster rhythms of Masters of Revenge, Killin Floor, and Necessary Evil. All 3 tracks are on the pedestrian
metal sound. Drive-by is a spoken word interlude, Last Breath is decent. There's an unnecessary cover of Hey Joe that is an exact replica of Jimi Hendrix. Surviving the Game is a strong tack, and the record ends on a positive note with Street Lobotomy and Born Dead. I'd imagine Body Count just wanted to make an all-out metal record. They did do that, but Body Count
sounds uninspired and without taking the subject matter to a certain subject, which we know Ice-T is capable of, the music suffers from the bland lyrical content. This is the weakest release in the BC cannon. Move on the Violent Demise: The Last Days instead.

5-0 out of 5 stars light like DeBussy, with overtones of Stravinsky
I was very often moved to tears by "Body Count". Not since the Beatles has anything been so refreshing, nay startling, in its efferescence and unadulterated musical joy. I think Mr. Ice should consider moving into the realm of modern Gospel music, such is the depth and profundity of his glorius music. If I were getting married, I can think of no more appropriate music for a wedding march or, for that matter, great background music for the honeymoon night. Mr. Ice has, with this record, taken his rightful place with Errol Garner, Hoagy Carmichael,Irving Berlin Leonard Bernstein and the like as one of this century's truly immortal composers. I played the record at a recent meeting of the Proud Young Americans For Truth and was completely overcome by the exhaust fumes issuing from all the dead bodies bubbling up out of the swamp. Oh, the beautiful melodies!! Oh, the emotion!! Oh, the oil plug on a 1965 Volkswagon "bug". Mr. Ice should be President of the United States in my opinion. No one could possibly be more qualified. This record has changed my life forever. Mr. Ice will, no doubt, soon be canonized and take his proper place with St. Francis and Mother Teresa. Every family in the U.S. should be required by law to play this record before dinner every night. Just think of the positive effect it would have on the youth of America!!! Pass me the beaker, Dr. Foley, if you please. I'll have to stop here. I am overcome with emotion just thinking about the illustrious Mr. Ice's gorgeous recording and my tears are starting to short out my computer keyboard. Oh the humanity!!!! Oh the humanity!!!! ...

2-0 out of 5 stars zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz... Not so good!
I love the shadowrun books. I got hooked when i was going through some old books of my dads and found the first three shadowrun books. They looked good so I read them. They have kept me on the edge of my seat but this time I fell off of my seat because it was so boring. I couldn't finish the book!

5-0 out of 5 stars my first sci-fi experience....
Run Hard, Die Fast is a fast paced, action packed, juice pumping, hard hitting and spine chilling book. The characters are so in depth and mysterious that i wasnt able to put the book down. This is the first book of its kind that i have read, and i dont see how they can get better. Im going to buy more Mel Odum as soon as i can.

4-0 out of 5 stars As a Shadowrunner could ....
Where to begin, I have been playing shadowrun for many years, we will leave it at that. This was the first novel I have had the pleasure to read. Not truly knowing the character of Argent, I really enjoyed the plot and team development. They were strong and well thought out. The story was great for the subject / plot of the adventure. It shouldn't be passed up. I would recommend this book and have. I look foward to reading other titles. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Slayer's Coming Of Age
To me, at least, this is Slayer's crowning moment when it comes to metal. Before this album came out, most music fans thought Slayer could only play fast music. This album knocked those criticisms out of the water. Combining the hard edge honed on such releases as Show No Mercy, Hell Awaits, and Reign In Blood with a slower, more melodic pace, this album revolutionized thrash metal. The best songs on this album have to be Mandatory Suicide, South Of Heaven, Silent Scream, Read Between The Lies, and Ghosts Of War. The lyrics became darker and more intelligent, while King and Hanneman's approach to guitar playing further intensified. I reccommend this album to anyone who likes Heavy Metal.

5-0 out of 5 stars Astounding break-through in musical content and variety
As the Slayer saga continues after 1986's Reign in Blood, South of Heaven assents to be one of their most brilliant pieces yet. This album is unique and changes the entire atmosphere of Slayer's world as opposed to Reign in Blood. The music has slowed down, Tom Araya has learned to tone down his bass, and the guitar solos are original and mind-blowing. Guitar frontmen Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman launch an explosive arsenal of heavy riffs and excellent solos, while Dave Lombardo hammers it out with pulse--pounding beats and original rhythms. Also, Tom Araya actually does some singing on this album as well as his usual yells and screams. The lyrical content has also become more intelligent as opposed to Slayer's "torture, pain, mutilation, agony" realm from Reign in Blood and Hell Awaits. The anti-war message in Mandatory Suicide and Behind the Crooked Cross displays a lucid understanding of war and the soldier's mind. Read Between the Lies provides a legitimate contradiction to the corruption of Evangelism and the church. Although quite cynical, Slayer's philosophies display a witty and astute look at the world and the essence of life. This album is just the beginning of Slayer's astounding attributes. With Seasons of the Abyss in 1990, they have proved themselves to be one of the most anticipated thrash/speed metal bands ever. This album is a must own for any Slayer fan and an excellent choice for new fans who are looking to purchase their first Slayer album.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Dark Horse Favorite
Put 10 Slayer fans in a room and ask them what they think the best Slayer album is and 9 of them will say Reign in Blood.

I am number 10. In my opinion South of Heaven is the best Slayer album to date. From the opening riff of the title track through the last scream on Spill the Blood, South of Heaven delivers.

Unlike it's predecessor, South of Heaven does not lend itself to breakneck speed from start to finish. The songs take a more methodical approach to their brutality. I find the lyrics to be their best. Silent Scream is the masterpiece of this record with one of the finest double bass drum pieces I have ever heard.

Even though many Slayer fans consider this to have been a letdown after Reign in Blood, you will not be disappointed if you lay your money down for South of Heaven. ... Read more

Editorial Review

To fully understand where We Have Come for Your Parents came from, you should hear Amen's self-titled Roadrunner debut. Amen (with four extra tracks from the spiky Whores of Hollywood EP as a sweetener to those who already own it), is full of anger, misanthropy, and self-disgust. Casey Chaos screeches like he's being burned alive on "Down Human," while the banks of guitars race him to the end. There's nothing clean and polished here; you can hear things breaking and cracking under the pressure, be they people (including Casey himself, who screams "Punish me!" like he really means it on "Drive") or equipment. This is a perfect introduction to an exciting band. --Emma Johnston ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, a shift in the metal world.
1999: Loads of releases/debuts from big name bands such as Slipknot, Coal Chamber, Sevendust, etc. But where does this band fit in there? NOWHERE! Don't get me wrong, I love those bands, but this band is such a great change from the same stuff I've been listening to for ages.

Amen is a fusion of true punk mixed with ear deafening heavy metal. The attitude of the band is basically Anti-Everything, but Anti-Everything in a good sort of way, basically wanting a better place to live in without all the B.S. (angrier than Rage Against the Machine). This CD has guts. Casey Chaos is just as loud as anyone you can imagine, I can literally just picture him gasping for breath after singing a song. That's how powerful the vocals on this are. Sonny Mayo and John Fahnestock make the transition from Snot into this, and seem to make the two bands stand apart very well. The guitar work isn't exactly groundbreaking, but fits the vocals and the style of the music.

My favorite songs on here are Down Human, Coma America, When a Man Dies a Woman, Unclean, Everything is Untrue and TV Womb. If you don't have this CD, you seriously have no idea what you are missing. And it's only a matter of time before these guys break through and a bunch of people start copying them.

If you like this CD, I highly suggest "Get Some" by Snot (Sonny and John's former band) and the Step Kings.

5-0 out of 5 stars God has answered our prayers with Amen!
Anyone who has been fed up with Punk Rock for the last couple of years this album should be a sigh of relief! People have forgot that this is what Punk Rock is supposed to be about. Punk Rock is supposed to be angry,ugly,confrontational,obscene,loud, and lastly about the music. It seems people have forgotten about that recently and are more concerned with how to spike their hair,how to rip their clothes, and where to put the safety pins. To hell with all that Amen is a nice big middle finger in the face of anyone associated with that mockery. Amen consists of singer Casey Chaos,guitarist Paul Fig,Guitarist Sonny Mayo,and Bassist John "Tumor" Fahenstock (both of whom were once part of the incredible hardcore group Snot), and drummer Shannon Larkin. The band kicks off the album with the opener "Coma America" which is a nice segway into the bedlam that is ahead. In "Unclean" Casey screams his lungs out,in "When A Man Dies A Woman" Shannon bashs those skins faster and harder than anybody i have ever heard,and on "Everything Is Untrue" the band shines as a unit and shows that they truly are very talented. I also must add that this album was produced by Ross Robinson whom i think is truly the only producer that can really capture madness and raw talent like this! All in all Amen are a great band and this album is definetly worth purchasing.

2-0 out of 5 stars Punk? Sorry but no, this lot are NU-METAL
This band are not anything like they were made out to be by various magazines and Music TV. They are NOT punk. they may have a punk attitude, but their music is metal bordering on nu-metal.

The closest they get to punk is Whores of Hollwood. I am a fan of grunge and punk music, i dont have anything against this band for being metal, its just they arent punk, punk is discharge and the exploited, not amen. I like some metal, but only true metal like Black Sabbath.

When Casey Chaos put out a CD compilation for Kerrang! magazine I liked most of the stuff on it, it was punkrock, i guess i just assumed his material would be like it.

Amen were a disappointment to me, its a shame, because they were made out to be your new favourite band. If youre a fan of Nu-metal then OK you'll like this, but if you came looking for a hardpunk record this isnt it, no matter what the magazines say. They did their best but would have done better not to advertise as "punk with a hard edge" because it's earned them several "amen ..." Two stars for trying. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The POWER TIP for real, forever
There really are few words to describe the impact this album had in the history of hip-hop. You just have to listen to it yourself. But first, flash back to 1988, when just about the ruffest rhymes around were from Ice T's contemporaries Public Enemy and KRS-One, but in a much different vein. Whereas PE and BDP were the hip-hop movement's conscience and mind in 1988, Ice T was the muscle flexing... "cruising in his 500 Benz sedan with his system peaked out rockin 'Pusherman'..." indeed. He blew up hip-hop and pieced together the remains. Everything else that followed was following his lead.

It's kind of interesting to hear "Girls LGBNAF" and realize just how much of a biter Will Smith / Fresh Prince was, spoonfeeding whiteboy America with watered-down Ice T rhymes. NWA could trace their entire catalog to "Grand Larceny", complete with samples of various cop shows and narration that were far ahead of its time. The breakneck speed of the beat in the title cut "Power" almost pre-dates techno-rap ten years earlier. You get the explosive "I'm Your Pusher" and "High Rollers", two songs that gave birth to the west-coast sound. I will never forget the first time I ever heard "Soul On Ice", because there simply had never been anything like it before. And all throughout the album, of course, is Ice's sense of humor, cutting through a message so serious and desperate that you can't help but listen. And listen good.

If your hip-hop collection does not include this album, it's incomplete. Quite simply, this CD was almost a decade ahead of its time, musically (thanks to the totally underrated DJ Afrika Islam) and lyrically (I swear Ice uses about eight personas and different voices in his delivery).

And if you need any more reaon to get this classic, then "look at the girl on the cover, homeboy."

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest Rap Album of All Time - ICE RULES!
Power is one of the most brilliant albums of all time, whether judged in Hip-Hop or other genres of music.

This album is so thematically strong, bringing the raw stories of the streets (Ice T invented Gangster Rhyme) within a context of realism. Unlike current hip-hop artists, glamourising the street, Ice T portrayed it with an always negative perspective. On "High Rollers": "You're much smarter than the crooks on Miami Vice - Right?" and "Drama" - On death row they got their own hot seat, for those who feel that they are truly elite - the last thing you see is a priest, the lights dim - your life ends - DRAMA" POWERFUL TO THE MAX!

And the difference is - ICE WAS THERE. He saw the outbreak of crack, he was there when the gang scene changed in LA - he speaks with experience and wisdom - not like the wannabe toys that are all over radio today...

Ice T showed his true colours as an innovator, educator and master rapper - and has fun - "Girls LGBNAF", while a down and dirty sex song, also carries a safe sex message...

But don't think for one minute Ice is preaching - NO! Ice entertains and inspires - Try some real hit. Full of funky loops, driving beats and unbelievable rhymes, this album is one you'll listen to OVER AND OVER AND OVER...

I've already worn out the CD I bought! BUY THIS ALBUM!

5-0 out of 5 stars Gangsta Rap With Soul!
Ice-T was in that group along with N.W.A. that would actually cuss and talk about things that most people didn't want to hear but was true! Granted, they may have gone too far sometimes but hey, the violence disscussed in their records was seen in the media everyday so who was the real hypocrites?!

Anyway, my joint used to be his ode to the old "Pusherman" song by Curtis Mayfield called "I'm Your Pusher." I still play that now! Definitely worth the buy if you want to hear how gangsta rap was done back in the day instead of the nonsense you hear now! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Dementia Never Looked So Good!
"Cecil B. Demented" is the funniest mainstream movie that John Waters has ever made. He satirizes the self-righteousness of independent filmmakers who are willing to die for their art, as well as Hollywood hacks who make movies only to make money. This movie also has more references to other films - mostly fictitious - than any other movie in film history! Melanie Griffith stars as Honey Whitlock, the Hollywood diva who is in Baltimore for the premier of her latest movie. It's a sappy, romantic comedy entitled "Some Kind Of Happiness." The crazed Cecil (Stephen Dorff) and his gang of outlaw filmmakers, called the Sprocket Holes, kidnap her. They force her to star in their ultimate reality film called "Raving Beauty." During the course of their filmmaking they attack a theatre showing the director's cut of "Patch Adams," disrupt a luncheon of the Maryland Film Commission, and take refuge in a porno movie theatre showing "Rear Entry." The star of that adult film just happens to be one of the Sprocket Holes, Cherish, lustily played by Alicia Witt. My favorite scene is when they invade the set of "Gump Again," which is being filmed in Baltimore. Kevin Nealon, taking over for Tom Hanks in the sequel, delivers the best line in the movie. "I guess life is a lot like a crabcake. There's lots of good stuff in the middle, but it's surrounded by a bunch of crap!" This movie is full of good stuff from beginning to end, and proves that John Waters is still a demented genius!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not so good movie satarizes not so good movies
John Waters is no ordinary director. I've always admired him for being an independent film maker and even for being somewhat of an anarchist. After he became fashionable, he still refused to make 'normal' movies, even though his projects were now financed by mainstream sources. His early works, Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble among them, lampooned the middle and lower-middle classes through an odd mix of cynicism and kindness. Later, in such movies as Polyester, Cry-Baby and Serial Mom, he did the same thing, but with bigger budgets and big name actors. His newest effort, Cecil B. Demented, takes aim at both mainstream Hollywood and low budget auteurs. I am afraid that this time he has missed the mark. The result is a low point in his career.

A group of insane would be movie makers, led by Cecil B. Demented [Stephen Dorff] has infiltrated a Baltimore movie house. When a big studio movie premieres there, they kidnap its star, Honey Whitlock [Melanie Griffith], for the purposes of having Ms. Whitlock star in Demented's movie and of retaliating against the Hollywood system. In the part that works best, the gang brainwashes Whitlock into becoming one of them, just as in real life the Symbionese Liberation Army brainwashed Patricia Hearst thirty years ago. To make the whole affair even more, uh, demented, Waters has Ms. Hearst herself play Cecil's mother. The converted Whitlock joins the gang in attacking a multiplex, a movie set and a meeting of the Baltimore Film Commission.

There are tons of film references here. Each member of this mad movie group sports a tattoo of his or her favorite director. The film set they attack is one for Forrest Gump 2. The multiplex they ransack is showing Patch Adams - the Director's Cut.

As in all John Water's movies, the cast seems to have had one big party during filming. The resulting effect is that of an amateurish high school production. This technique has served the director well in the past, adding to his movies' comic effect, but here it is simply irritating. It helps to confuse us as to just what Water's point is. If the studios can't make good movies and independents can't either, then is he saying no one can make one these days? Based on this picture, it seems at least that he can't.

Finally, Cecil B. Demented does not work because it is not so good movie that satirizes the fact that Hollywood produces mainly not so good movies. By turning the spotlight on Hollywood, which is admittedly a good target, Mr. Waters inadvertently shines it on his own movie.

1-0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment
I am a huge John Waters fan, but this movie does not come close to living up to his usual standards. It seems Waters is trying to balance between mainstream filmmaking for the larger audience appeal, and keep his previous biting cutting-edge. Serial Mom was able to do this -- this movie absolutely failed. It is poorly written, poorly acted (Melanie Griffith a bad actor? Yeah, that's a stretch), and poorly editted.

The movie is suppose to be making a statment against Hollywood turning out so much mediocore garbage. This movie is a prime example of the type of garbage that shouldn't be turned out.

John Waters' movies are by all means still worth buying and watching, just avoid this one. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars a good bad movie
Right away you can tell that redneck zombies is not going to be a classic since it's looks like a home movie but it will at least be a cult classic.The storys about a group of people who go camping in the woods in the middle of redneck town where a group of hicks spill a barrel of toxic waste in their moonshine.They eventally drink it and become redneck zombies looking for brains.For the most part I liked this movie because it has a entertaining beginning and the movies just fun to watch.Though the movie has a lot of problems too like the acting is some of the worst ever and a lot of scenes drag on way too long like the transforming scene and the cave scene.Also the last half hour is really dull though there are some good gore scenes from a movie that looks like a home movie but I'm not really surprised since the director later went on to do spicial effects for lloyd kaufman's films.So if you like b movies you might like this but not love it and for people who don't they'll wonder how this movie ever got released.

1-0 out of 5 stars Oh the humanity!
If someone ever cornered me by asking why I waste my time watching Troma films, I would have a tough time giving a convincing answer. It seems like every few weeks I end up watching one of these nightmares. I simply don't know why. Perhaps I am too lazy to turn these monstrosities off once the movie begins. Perhaps my love for low budget junk provides enough inspiration to bravely gut it out after I realize the movie is yet another Lloyd Kaufman sponsored disaster. Who knows what drives me to punish myself. I can tell you that "Redneck Zombies" presented me with a particularly painful conundrum. I knew the movie would turn into an all out gorefest at some point, but the lead up to the real bloodletting caused so much physical and mental pain that it almost wasn't worth waiting for the payoff. Cosmic questions of massive import assailed my brain as I waited for the film to grind to its inevitable conclusion: why are we on this planet? Will I fulfill the goals I have set for my life? And why am I wasting two hours of my physical existence watching this dreck? Some questions have no easy answers. Some questions have answers best left unexplored. "Redneck Zombies" is a movie best left unseen and unexplored in any way, shape, or form.

I'll give director Pericles Lewnes some credit; he created a shot on video film that challenges the very conceptions of what bad means. "Redneck Zombies" is such an abominable, wretched project that it soils even Troma's reputation. Imagine, if you dare, a bunch of soldiers hauling a drum of toxic waste through the backwoods of some southern state in a jeep (Yep, a jeep. The Army now hauls dangerous radiation in a jeep. Sigh.). Predictably, the drum falls out of the truck and breaks open. A trio of brain dead moonshiners discovers the drum and decides to mix up a batch of special liquor in it. The firewater mixes with the residual traces of the radiation, resulting in an oddly colored drink that knocks the socks off the local imbibers. It also turns anyone who drinks it into flesh eating, overall wearing zombies. Over the next hour and a half-it feels like infinity-most of the residents in the area drink this nasty brew and suffer the consequences. There's a bit of gore here as some of the infected residents make quick work of those who didn't drink the glowing liquor. The real fun starts later.

A group of campers unfortunately picked this exact time to hike around the backwoods for a few days. The group, largely and thankfully forgettable as actors, is the most moronic group of campers I've seen in a horror film. I would just try and accept them for what they are-victims-and move on. Only one guy stands out of the crowd, a real doozy of a fellow who does nothing except stand around drinking liquor and laughing. Trouble starts slowly at first as some of the campers stumble on the still that made the toxic moonshine. Predictably, oh so predictably, a couple of the hicks stumble out of the woods and quickly make mincemeat out of a couple of the campers. When the others discover the bodies, and realize how much trouble they are in, the fun starts in earnest. A mad scramble ensues as the rapidly diminishing group attempts to clear out of the area. The problem with this chaotic plan comes in the form of packs of zombified hicks lurching around the forests and plains, ripping and tearing their way through the terrified humans. A central question emerges as the film comes to a close: who is stupider, the campers slumming in the backwoods or the zombie hicks? If you find the answer, please let me know.

Did I mention this movie is a strictly shot on video project with a budget of approximately seventy pesos? Lewnes tries to trick the movie up by routinely employing video camera effects and gimcracks that even a high school student working on a video yearbook wouldn't use. Hence, you get a lot of color trails, pictures within a picture, and the like. It's neat stuff if you've spent your entire life in North Korea, but quite amateurish and gaudy to the rest of us. Not to beat a dead horse here, but the photographic techniques used in this movie are to the modern world of cinema what Pong is to modern day videogames. What does work on occasion is the extreme gore at the end of the film. Some of the carnage unfolding onscreen is quite unpleasant, and sporadically effective, for a zero budget production. If the viewer didn't have to wait so long to see the sauce, "Redneck Zombies" might have merited a more positive response.

You might think Lewnes could compare with Peter Jackson of "Bad Taste" and "Dead Alive" fame since both men cut their teeth on extremely low budget horror. You would be wrong. Jackson's films were excitingly creative, gross, and humorous affairs that will leave a lasting imprint on the world of low budget horror. Pericles Lewnes, on the other hand, only leaves behind blight. As far as I know, he never made another movie. Typical of Troma Studios, the DVD release has plenty of cheesy extras. The usual trailers and shameless Troma self-promotion are here, as is an interview with Lewnes and another guy associated with this travesty. Save yourself a few hours of your life and avoid this clunker at all costs. And hey, don't worry-there's no need to thank me for warning you in advance.

2-0 out of 5 stars So Bad, its, well, Bad!
Not funny. There is no aesthetic to this movie at all. Some of the gore is okay, but so what? This is one hell of a lame movie. I like camp, but this thing is so self-conscious, so sophmoric, so amatuer, it will have you cringing and then just drifting. It sounds like it was written by a fifth grader. The "acting" is moronic. Once again, not funny. I'm sorry, but the people that said this movie is funny were extremely messed up when they saw this.

If you want to see a good troma release, try Terror Firmer, Tromeo and Juliet, Toxic Avenger, Killer Condom, Cannibal the Musical, or even Kabuki Man. Don't waste your time with this. You'll be sorry. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Raccoon City has been overrun by the living dead, and you are one of only a dwindling handful of survivors. You must escape the doomed city or become part of a ghastly new food chain: one with you at the bottom.

You play as either Leon Kennedy, a rookie cop who's having a really bad first day on the job, or Claire Redfield, sister of one of the stars of the original Resident Evil. Leon and Claire's meeting is depicted in a visually stunning, B-movie cutscene. They're quickly separated, but occasionally meet up throughout the game.

Right after the gruesome intro, you're dumped into the thick of things and have to dash through the devastated city streets, fleeing from one horde of zombies after another. As you make your way to a supposed refuge--the city police station--you find evidence that the citizenry fought bravely against the undead menace--and lost. Smashed barricades, abandoned police cars, boarded-up stores, dismembered bodies, and hundreds of expended bullet shell casings are all-too-common sights. Once you reach the station, you discover the remains of a siege. The defenders' desperate final hours are recorded in a fragmented journal. Its pages detail a possible escape route through an underground passage. Did the cops make it out? The alarming number of zombies wearing tattered police uniforms may be a clue.

Resident Evil 2 keeps the terrific puzzles and action of the original while vastly improving cinematic qualities such as dialogue, camera angles, cutscenes, atmosphere, and location design. An instant survival horror classic, Resident Evil 2 has it all. --John Cocking

5-0 out of 5 stars Izo-Zombies galore and loads of scares and gore
I'am from the U.K. so there might be some differences between the U.S.A. and U.K. version. (That I don't know). This game is an excellent horror flick with a surprisingly good plot which is optional because there are two different story lines one is for Claire Redfield the other is Leon S.Kennedy. Their charactors are different thus their personal goals are as well.The starting sequence talks about Resident Evil 1 and how Umbrella Corp created the T-Virus which was for bio technology which mutated humans into zombies. With simply using still or moving images this is a good way of back tracking thus getting you started for the game itself.

There are to seperate sequences for both Claire and Leon which mould into one when they meet each other.Through out this game these sequences are of a high quality, even better most probably on the P.C. version. They grip the player by using the techniques of music, sound-effects and good voice acting.

Within the game they create terror and unnerve the player by using music and also the sounds and movements of the creatures and zombies.The deranged "camera" angles around corners and angles even so its harder to kill your enemy.The dingy music and back/fore ground play the part mostly of unnerving the player.

The simple scares which make you jump even for a split secound can put you off the game.

The story un folds slowly as you are picking up puzzles to get to next section of the game.each charactor meets a "mystery" person Claire meets a little 12 year-old girl called Sherry Birkin. While Leon meets a woman called Ada Wong. (This is later in the game depnding on how fast you are.) This might give a sense of achievment to the player for getting this far.The story unfolds about a another monster stalking the police station. This I will leave as it would be telling to much.

Overall this game is brilliant relying on scares,gore and a good story line it'll either scare you. Please you or in some cases bore you. But! This game should be accounted for as one of the best horror game sequals of all time!

P.S. These examples are for gamers playing this for the first time.The fear factor depends on thr personality as well as being experienced.

5-0 out of 5 stars the best in the series; flat out awesome
STORYLINE: Resident evil 2 places you into the boots of Leon Kennedy or Claire Redfield (your choice), who after arriving into Raccoon City realize that its infested with man eating zombies, giant spiders, and other things you can't even imagine. Unfortunately, simply driving out of the town in a car will not cut it, so you'll have to guide 'em through such places as research facilities and police stations to find an alternate escape. Along the way you'll discover the story behind all the chaos and come across many plot twists, and you'll meet some nice, and others bizzare, characters along the way.
PROS: This games replay value is off the charts. There are so many hidden features (two hidden characters, and an alternate scenario for the two main characters) that you won't want to drop this game for a very long time. The action and suspense levels are also mind blowing, as you tackle down hordes of the zombies and much worse enemies with pistols, grenade launchers, and magnums. Graphics, control, and sound all hit the bullseye with this game.
CONS: Voice acting is absolutely horrible. Each characters voice is monotone and has no feeling behind it. Though it hurts the game, its not so effective that you hate the game; its only a minor, minor problem.
OVERALL: a must have game if you are a Playstation owner. The storyline and gameplay makes Resident Evil 2 one of the best PSone games to own.

5-0 out of 5 stars Capcom does it again !!!!! (resident evil 2)

Editorial Review

Jewel's debut album, Pieces of You, reveals a special voice--strong and focused on both the whispery verses and the hooky choruses. The recording also exposes an unfortunate tendency to present trite, hackneyed sentiments as if they were oracular visions from a young prophet to a jaded world. For the most part, Jewel sings to her own acoustic guitar accompaniment, but she has a lot more in common with, say, the Indigo Girls or Lisa Loeb than with Judy Collins or Nanci Griffith. Despite her soft soprano and pretty melodies, her songs have an iconoclastic edge which make her more of an unplugged alternative rocker than a folkie. Her songs too often betray their origins as written verse in their hard-to-sing meters, unmusical phrasing, and diary-like pronouncements. Nonetheless, a few numbers, such as "Morning Song" and "You Were Meant for Me," show a spark of humor about romance, and hint that Jewel may yet write songs worthy of her remarkable voice. --Geoffrey Himes ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Different from the rest of the market...
I am going to be straight with you guys. Jewel writes music that makes me cry. And when music springs up emotions like that, it deserves five stars. This was the last Jewel CD that i bought but it is my favorite of all four of her albums. This is a CD that trys to accomplish something that other CD's lack. That something is emotion. PIECES OF YOU has amazing lyrics, amazing tunes, and an amazing singer. Her is my blow-by-blow account of the CD.

1)WHO WILL SAVE YOUR SOUL?- 5/5 Think about the words she sings when you hear this song and you will realize what a wonderful songwriter Jewel is.
2)PIECES OF YOU- 5/5 This song addresses what people think fo each other. It has a lot of truth in it and is sung live.
3)LITTLE SISTER- 5/5 A lyrical masterpiece that has a deeper meaning than you think when you hear.
4)FOOLISH GAMES- 6/5 That's right, this song deserves a six out of five. This is the one that makes me cry. I absolutly love it.
5)NEAR YOU ALWAYS- 5/5 Really amaing love song that is very beautiful.
6)PAINTERS- 5/5 Long but well worth it. A tale of a couple of painters. A great metaphorical piece of music.
7)MORNING SONG- 5/5 What happens when a couple stays home from work just to be together.
8)ADRIAN- 5/5 Longer than Painters. A lovely but depressing song about an injured man.
9)I'm SENSITIVE- 5/5 In one word- BEAUTIFUL
10)YOU WERE MEANT FOUR ME- 5/5 An instant hit with sad lyrics.
11)DON'T- 5/5 Another great love song.
12)DADDY- 5/5 Kind of a threatening song about Jewel's realtionship with her father.
13)ANGEL STANDING BY- 5/5 Wonderful.
14)AMEN- 5/5 A great ending to a great CD.

Keep in mind that I listen to Blink 182, Green Day, No Doubt and Garbage and I love Jewel.

5-0 out of 5 stars forever a favorite
I received this cd for my 10th birthday and now that I'm 16 it's still my favorite. here's what all of the songs mean to me:

Who will save your soul- Jewel tried to be clever in this song, makes you think about your sins and hey..who WILL save your soul anyway? her folky-bluesy voice is fantastic with the bass guitar

pieces of you- some people don't like this song because of it's brutal honesty and language "you say he's a [edit] does it make you want to kill him?" classic jewel type lyrics

little sister- lovely coffee-shop type song, fast paced and sort of clumsy. it's about drugs in our society "we eat white bread and beer instead of a handshake or hug, we spill the pills and sweep them under the rug"

foolish games- the most marketable song. piano, romantic, beautiful.

near you always- an acoustic song with a repeated jewel theme...wanting to be close to someone but scared of being so dependent.

painters- one of my favorites. a great story told with an acoustic guitar and heart-wrenching vocals. makes you fall in love with the "painters"

morning song- a simple cute little acoustic song.

adrian- another story, very sad and too long. my least favorite song on this cd.

i'm senstive- another cute song about jewel just being herself. you can visualize her playing this in a coffee shop

you were meant for me- my absolute favorite. I sang this in a talent show. understated and honest this song has perfect balance. you can listen to it over and over again. everyone can relate to it. "put on my pj's and hop into bed I'm half alive but I've been mostly dead"

don't- almost the same as "near you always"

daddy- jewel sounds pretty angry in this song at who else but..daddy. really emotional and raw.

angel standing by- pure, clean, beautiful song. mostly harmonics and great vocals. like a lullaby. I sing this to my boyfriend.
"...when you cry I'll be right there baby tellin you, you were never nothin less than beautiful"

amen- another song about society with clever lyrics "where have my heroes gone?" jewel hits some major high notes in this song. I was impressed

5-0 out of 5 stars Peices of You
I found this album buried in my parents CD collection and fell in love with it as soon as I turned it on. Deffinatly a moving and in depth album. Jewel stands back and takes a look at what we are doing wrong and the positive things we can change it with.

Save your soul: Nice beat deffinatly goes into the human mind and life explaing how we think and act and how we can change ourselves for our own benifit. 3/5

Peices of you: The lyrics are so simple ,yet if you think about it, are compelling. Its on how we judge people on how they look or what they do and how in the end they are not that different from us. 5/5

Little sister: More to the teen side of life on how we get addiced to like and comforment 2.5/5

Foolish games: Funny everyone seems to love this song. Its fine for me but not inspiring or anything. The melody is nice but...deffinatly I think not the best on the CD. I need moving lyrics and these just don't do it that deeply for me. 3.5/5

Near you always: Cute and simple explaining on how much she is in love and is afraid she can't let go. One of my favorites. 5/5

Painters: Not inspiring but beautifully written paired with absolutly beautiful music it make a tear jerker. One of my fav songs. Its a love story we all aspire for 5.5/5

Morning song: Fun and brings up the mood after painters. Its every lovers dream saterday morning. 5/5

Adrian: Simple and childish. It gives the illusion of that anyway. Another sad story on loves loaylty and streangth. 3/5

I'm sensitive: I personaly think this song is hilarious. I picture two 12 year old kids having a make-believe and deep conversation most adults have trouble with. 5/5

You were ment for me: Once again another popular one which is fine but not my favorite. Although I enjoy listening to it very much. Its soulful music and notes touch my heart almost physically. 4.5/5

Don't: Anxtious and shy and full of an underlying pain. I like the music more then the lyrics. 3.5/5

Daddy: No one likes this one cause its raw and emotional. I enjoy her ability to say how she feels and put pure emotion into her song and bring them to life in a way no one else can. How she sings show she is part of the song and not just singing it. 4.8/5

Angel standing by: Musicbox like, it floats above you like, well, an angel. Pure love and devotion echo in her lyrics and beautiful voice. 5/5

Amen:I like the tune and music, unfortunatly I can't understand all of the lyrics. I like parts of the song but I adore part of it as well. Its moving and deep and even though I can't understand its true meaning it still effects me. Her voice purity is shown in pure excellence here. 4/5 ... Read more

Editorial Review

It Takes a Nation of Millions was the sign that hip-hop had exploded like a grenade. A rap record as abrasive, hardcore, and eloquent as a JFK speech, the 1988 disc is one classic track after another: tense, multilayered, harmonically wild music. Chuck D. declaims like a master preacher with foil Flavor Flav's voice darting around his. They've got the desperate energy of people fighting for their lives, and everything from their pumped-up rhetoric ("Prophets of Rage") to the group's quasi-paramilitary organization to the sirens and sax squeals in nearly every track declares how urgent their mission is. It's a hugely influential album, and it still sounds fresh and frightening after all these years. --Douglas Wolk ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Public Enemy- It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
Public Enemy's 2nd Album "It Takes Nation of Millions to Hold us Back" (1988) is a hiphop classic, in the true meaning of the word too. Sixteen tracks total, fifty eight minutes long it is one of the most influential hiphop albums of all time. Public Enemy on this album consists of: Chuck D, Flavor Flav, Terminator X, Professer Griff and Security of the First world, produced by the Bomb Squad. The album is Rap, Jazz, Rock and Funk influenced througout. The music on this album is very meaningfull, Public Enemy addressed very important issues specifically within there community, while making music that everyone could listen to while daring to delve far deeper politically and socially then any of there counterparts. I did not come across this album until recently when I started to listen to albums that are oldschool to me (this one dropped when I was six) so I did not grow up with it, but I am real glad I found it because fifteen years later Public Enemy's music is still relevant, enjoyable to listen to and completely substantial- though one has to be open minded. I like every track on this album. Some of my current favourites include: "Bring the Noise" Love the rock/rap combination of this track listening to it gets me hyped up, the short jazz based "Show Em Whatcha Got","Night of the Living Baseheads" which has Chuck D addressing the Crack epidemic of the eighties, the powerful "Prophets of Rage" and the albums last track "Party for the Right to Fight"- But it's proven and fact And it takes a nation of millions to hold us back. Public Enemy's "It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back" is an album I recommend to people who are looking for conscientious thought provoking music, music that goes far beyond the norm.

5-0 out of 5 stars The greatest Rap CD Ever Made!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This album is a non-stop attack on your ears that you wish would never end. So I highly request that you buy this and put an extra dollar in their pockets. 1. Countdown to Armageddon- is an ok begining but i recomend skiping it- 7

2. Bring The Noise- Classic-10

3. Don't Believe The Hype- Another Classic- 10

4. Cold Lampin' With Flavor- Flavor is not a great rapper but it is still a pretty good song- 7

5. Terminator X To The Edge Of Panic- This show X's great DJing skills and is another great Track- 9.5

6. Mind Terrorist- This is not a track that you will listen to by its self, but you will listen to it when it comes up- 9

7. Loudre Than A Bomb- This just another great track that everone in the world should hear at least once before they die- 10

8. Caught, Can We Get A Witness- This shows how Chuck Feels about sampling and how he thinks that music should not be copyrighted and that he should be allowed to use whatever he wants- 9

9. Showem What You What You Got- Another track you will like but will not pick up the CD to listen to- 9

10. She Watch Channel Zero?!- This is my favorite song because of the mix of the guitar riff and the the great beat- 10

11. Night Of The Livng Bashheads- This is a Ok track to me but compared with what else is out there this track is amazing.

12. Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos- This track is amazing just amazing I would just recomend the album if this was the only song on it and it cost $50 bucks!!!!- 10

13. Security Of The First World- This a song made for the S1W's when they go on stage to do marching moves to- 7

14. Rebel Without A Pause- This song was the first ever PE club hit and it is an amazing song with a great saxaphone scriech that so maney other rappers now use (Dr. Dre, RZA, ECT.)- 10

15. Prophets Of Rage- A great song that I think is another Classic on this Album-10

16. Party For Your Right To Fight- Just a great song to listen to on head phones because the voices come from the two sides.......I cant explain it just get it and find out- 10

Average Rating = 9.2

(PS. Anyone who says they are raccist have never really listened to the lyrics and are just plain non hip hop heads...)

5-0 out of 5 stars Dont slag this record...
...because you're a hip-pop loving doucher.

This is a cornerstone of hip-hop and should be treated as such and if this was all then I would probably not even be writing this review. However, such is not the case. This album was the voice of a generation. It spoke for the depressed state of inner-city African Americans and the constant injustice they faced. Its true, hip-hop used to be about more than just money. ... Read more
