5-0 out of 5 stars To Expand Your Musical Horizons (Or At Least To Expand Mine)
I adored this CD. Being a huge Gilmore Girls fan I asked for this for my birthday as I had no money, and have not regretted it. I can listen to it over and over without getting sick of it, and I never want to skip a track, though I have my preferences (Clear Spot, One Line, I'm The Man Who Murdered Love, Human Behaviour, Where You Lead I Will Follow, I Don't Mind, It's Alright, Baby, God Only Knows). I was pleased to hear that I agreed with Rory on Child Psychology - I liked it because it made me 'gloomy'. I also love Sam Phillips and the 'la-la' music from the show, and the cues make great transitions on this CD, just as they do in between scenes. I'm ashamed to say I hardly knew any of this music before watching Gilmore Girls, but this CD has made me want albums by every artist on here, so that's probably what my next birthday list will consist of.

3-0 out of 5 stars Our Little Corner of the World: Music From Gilmore Girls
The CD provides the themes heard on Gilmore Girls and that is interesting. However, I was looking for something more such as music referred to by Lorelai, Rory and Lane. As an example, it might have had "Shadow Dancing". It is not a CD I would RIP to a hard drive for inclusion with an evening of music. I would have a hard time playing the CD more than the three times I have played it.
4-0 out of 5 stars Gilmore Girls Rock
I loved the CD. The main reason I bought the CD is that my 8 month old daughter loves the music during the episodes. I own the 1st 4 seasons on DVD and we are just about out of shows to watch. She loves the opening song and the closing credits. The only thing I was upset over was that the closing credits were not on the CD. Otherwise, it is a CD that will rock in our household for years to come. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Imagine a loose consortium of musicians who combine the lilting melodies of the Zombies with the driving hooks of the Kinks. Sure, it's what all the kids are doing these days, but Vancouver's New Pornographers are one of the few--along with the Shins--to get the balance right. Their third full-length offers more of the same smart power-pop that made Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars New Pornographer step up!
I've had nearly 6 months with this record now and am convinced that it is the New Pornographer's masterpiece, though I believe (and hope) that the best is still yet to come.
4-0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable
Well Amazon kept recommending me to this album so I decided to try it out.Im not sure if this is actually indie but I generally do not like much music in that genre. I dont think many indie bands have good vocalists but it is easy to see that that The New Pornographers have beautiful harmonizing vocals.Overall this is easy to listen to, and is just good indie pop.They seem to have some kind of chemistry in the band to create such simple enjoyable music.There are not too many memorable songs, except maybe Sing Me Spanish Techno, but overall it is very pleasing to the ears.
2-0 out of 5 stars Twin-not to catchy but avant garde enough- Cinema
Whats the big deal? Neko Case is a great musician in her own right. In fact, her songs were the only ones on the alblum I actually enjoyed. Bones of an Idol is a great song, but I really dont see the appeal of this faceless band. If its rock, then its not very good. I would give them the benefit of the doubt that they are so artsy that theyve come full cirle back to plain, old dirty rock. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Here's an exception...
In the past I've said that compilations are, as a rule, pure evil. I am willing to backtrack on those sentiments in the case of this disc, however. It's simply a great collection of songs from a great band. One can't really complain much. With the Barenaked Ladies, this should only be a jumping-off point, since they have so much great material beyond what's included here. If you're new to them, this is a great place to start.

5-0 out of 5 stars New BNL Fan
I bought this CD prior to seeing the BNL's in concert. It has all the best songs from all their albums and it is a great mix for first time listeners. It has sold me to buy other albums by them.

5-0 out of 5 stars All Barenaked Fans Should Get This CD
I love this CD because it has most of my favorite BNL songs as well as some others that I like.I own everyone of their CDs, but there are songs on them that I just don't like to listen to.I like every song on this CD and I never have to skip around.It's great to listen to, and it's a nice addition to any BNL collection.I reccomend this CD to anyone who loves BNL, even if you already have all the CDs, and to anyone who wants to get a taste of this great band.If you don't like what you hear on this CD, try listening to one of the other albums (I love their X-mas CD).Don't be turned of from this band by reviews saying that the CD is terrible.Their an awesome band. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars well, it's progression.......but backwards
lets revisit the history of the band plain white t's. their debut album "stop" was a very anthem filled songs about life and relationships that would appeal to mostly to people in highschool or perhaps young college students. this being said because the album talks alot about doing something with your life at pivotal moments and of course relationships.
5-0 out of 5 stars improvement
are you people serious? their last album "all that we needed" was terrible! i was so disappointed because of my pure enjoyment of their old stuff, i just didn't think it was up to par and i think that the band felt the same way because they didn't wait long before releasing "every second counts" which is awesome! it's exactly what i was hoping for from this band, and if they keep it up, they'll make it big!

1-0 out of 5 stars Uninspired.
Half the effort of their previous work. The lyrics for every song are about relationships. Gets real tedious if you listen to the album straight through.

5-0 out of 5 stars Susanna Hoff's best work by far
Hoffs and Matthew Sweet are clearly having a whopping good time with this album of covers from the 60's which includes well-known and not so well-known songs.The song selection offers an intriguing mixing of obvious choices such as "Monday, Monday" with surprises like the Beatles' rarely played guitar masterpiece, "And Your Bird Can Sing."The arrangments are slavish to the originals, but the material is played and sung with more than enough gusto to compensate for the lack of originality.Hoffs' voice shows a surprising vigor not evident in her Bangles work, especially on "Different Drum" on which she goes toe-to-toe with the original version by the Stone Ponys featuring the classic vocal from a young Linda Ronstadt (although Hoffs' version does lack the charm of the distinctive Southern twang of Ronstadt's voice).Hoffs' voice is well complimented by Sweets', and the two provide some surprising harmonizing on songs like "Different Drum.This is a feel good album if there ever was one and as such it delivers the goods.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sugar is Sweet
If you love Susanna Hoff's wonderfully sugary voice, then this is for you.While I enjoyed the Bangles' last effort, "Doll Revolution," there was not enough Susanna for me -- could there ever be!This is not to downplay the vocal and instrumental offerings of the other side of Sugar, Matthew Sweet -- indeed, Sweet adds some much needed punch that I think was lacking from Susanna's solo efforts.This is a true team effort.Great material and a joy to listen to, over and over!

3-0 out of 5 stars Good Clean Fun
Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs are two of my favorite pop artists.Sweet's 1990 album "Girlfriend" was one of the most near-perfect pop-rock albums ever, and Hoffs led the Bangles to a string of enjoyable hits in the 80's.Their music owes a lot to 60's pop, and here they've teamed up to pay homage to some classics and forgotten gems of that era, under the pretense of a boy/girl pop duo with the moniker "Sid and Susie".Their sweet-sunny vocals seem perfectly suited to most of the material they cover, and their harmonies and musicianship are quite capable.Still, as with so many cover projects, several of the tunes leave you with the question, "Why did they bother?"Probably the best tracks are the less-familiar ones:"I See the Rain" (originally by Marmalade), and "Care of Cell #44" (The Zombies), for instance, are easier to enjoy without a point of reference."She May Call You Up Tonight" (The Left Banke) sounds tailor-made for Hoffs - in fact, it would have been a perfect cover for the Bangles.(And Ms. Hoffs, by the way, still looks as petite-foxy as ever.) "Who Knows Where the Time Goes" (Sandy Denny) is an enjoyable version of the classic folk-rock tune, at least until the embellished, swirly ending."Alone Again Or" (Love) misses the technically brilliant flamenco-style guitar of the original."Cinnamon Girl" (Neil Young) and "Different Drum" (Linda Ronstadt/Stone Ponies) are literal interpretations but done very well.As for "And Your Bird Can Sing" (Beatles) and "Monday Monday" (The Mamas and the Papas) - well, they fall firmly into the "why bother?" category, as they don't approach the perfection of the originals.It's all a fun and effective exercise in nostalgia, and it's gorgeously produced, if overdone in spots, but if you love the originals, nothing here will make you misplace your affections.

4-0 out of 5 stars Those were the days my friend!
In the early seventies, Bad finger represented an adequate link between the tradition and the new.Since the days of "The strawberry statement" they were widely known through his well reminded "Day after day". And since then, his presence established a perfect balance between the pop and the soft rock, simple melodies, but filled of inspiration and expansive creativity.
4-0 out of 5 stars great band
Badfinger was a wonderful band and there popular singles are power pop nuggets. There is no doubt that they, to a certain degree, emulated the Beatles.
4-0 out of 5 stars Once Almost Great, Then Sad
Badfinger was a memorable group in the early years of the 70s.After the Beatles disbanded at the turn of the decade, Badfinger seemed to be an heir apparent to the style of the Beatles.Badfinger was signed to the Apple label, which belonged to the Beatles, and there was involvement in the group by various Beatles, most notably Paul McCartney, and involvement by the group in various Beatles projects.A string of hits in the early 70s powered the group along and all seemed well in the world for Badfinger.Unfortunately, politics, personal differences, and critics spelled the end of the group, forever.However, the music remains; a testament to a group that seemed on the verge of dripping gold.

Maybe I am too into music and especially Todd Rundgren but I feel that a one cd compilation gives a very false appearance of this artist.

I am a Todd fan from way back and I am constantly amazed by all the people who are unfamiliar with anything but "bang the drum all day." That's to be expected because most of his stuff never makes it to the radio. This CD is a wonderful compilation that includes some very inspired stuff about love and understanding. If you are a man give this as a gift to a woman. She will dig the music forever; perhaps, she will dig you as well!

Editorial Review

This double record from 1972 remains the definitive collection of Rundgren's long career. With Rundren acting as a one-man-band for three-quarters of the session, it was also his bid for a Ph.D. from the college of musical knowledge. He deserved the degree for simply writing the lead-off track, "I Saw the Light," a melodic pop-rock gem that remains Rundgren's greatest hit. Rundgren excels at Beatles-esque pop-rock ("Couldn't I Just Tell You," "Wolfman Jack") and Philadelphia-styled soul ballads ("It Wouldn't Have Made Any Difference," "Hello, It's Me"). He also sticks his toe into heavy metal ("Black Maria"), jazz-rock fusion ("Breathless"), and cerebral pop ("The Night the Carousel Burnt Down"). Like most double albums, there's fat on the play-list, but the best of Read more

An amazing double album by , at the time, a very young Todd. An interesting variety of songs. Todd can rock, he can croon, he can play bubble gum, he can jam, he can harmonize, he's got soul. "Hello it me" was a fav when I was young and it is still way up there today.
5-0 out of 5 stars excellent double album
todd rundgren really proves to be great in many different areas on this double album. he dabbles in a bunch of musical styles, writes some great songs with great melodies, produces everything, he's a one man band, he's a band leader, he's a one man carole king album, he gets heavy, and does some pretty weird experiments. one man... doing all of that! wow! listen and enjoy.

Editorial Review

The debut of this Vancouver indie supergroup led by Zumpano's Carl Newman sent critics scrambling to the early '80s and mid '60s for power-pop forebears, and it sent everyone else bouncing down the street and shouting out car windows. In a happily urgent record full of tight harmonies and cryptic storytelling, the high point undeniably remains the great single "Letter from an Occupant," which rides Neko Case's country-crooner voice nearly off the rails.

4-0 out of 5 stars This band just keeps getting better
How funny, I bought The New Pornographers newest album Twin Cinema first and was immediately hooked and amazed by that sublime cd. So I plunked down my money for Mass Romantic thinking I'd get more of the same and was underwhelmed. It didn't hit me right off, so I put it away for a while and have since come back to it. While it's not as immediately powerful as Twin Cinema, it's really grown on me and is a very good album in its own right. Mass Romantic is punchy, emotional with a wonderful sense for mining the best of rocks past such as the Beach Boys and The Who while maintaining it's own character. It's structurally simpler, less original and not as well-recorded as Twin Cinema, yet there's a lot to like about this cd. For one thing the wonderful singing and melodies. I find it rewards repeated listenings and is well worth picking up.

3-0 out of 5 stars this is over rated
I do not see what the big deal is about this.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great Disc, Neko Case Rules
I was a little hesitant when I was buying this since I'd never heard the group before, but I had heard Neko Case, who I think is awesome. I wasn't disappointed, it is a very good album, and it's rare I want to listen to something twice in a row after 1st hearing it. Get it!!

So I love the Dandy Warhols and ALL their albums but I have to say that this is my absolute favorite.It is a brilliant mix of all the BEST music---The Velvet Underground, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop and everything good inbetween.There is a song for every mood on this album...songs to dance to and songs to relax to...Overall 13 Tales from Urban Bohemia is the perfect mix for anyone who loves a variety of music and Bohemians everywhere! Give it a LISTEN!

4-0 out of 5 stars Catchin' Up
This was the second Dandy Warhols album that I purchased, the first being Welcome To The Monkey House.I didn't listen to Welcome much post my purchase however after getting into Thirteen I have spent many hours listening to it.Thirteen Tales From Urban Bohemia should go down in history as one of the best "new" music albums of our times.This album has everything from swirling guitar progressions to hard driving rock to knees up country numbers.I love it and think that I will always go back for more.This is a must have album for your collection and I can recommend it without hesitation.

2-0 out of 5 stars BOOOOOOO!!!!!!
Terrible, I had gotten this CD with high hopes because of their single "We Used To Be Friends", but this CD just lacks much creative beat or rhythem or anything. It sounds like someone who is morbidly depressed and is just singing with sighs, "lalala...... sigh.... all of us....."

I have been a fan of CUTE since October of last year and I've waited in anticipation for this album for months. It didn't disappoint. The only song on this album that I have a complaint about is 'There's a Class for This'. I LOVED the demo of this song. The CD version, however...not so much. The addition of William Beckett was an improvement, but the polished quality of it totally ruins the feel of the song.

4-0 out of 5 stars Another Illinois band
What can I say.I've been a Cheap Trick fan for longer than most fans out there.This Rockford, Illinois band has been rockin' forever.These are good tracks.I like the other 'greatest hits' too though.Put the best of the 2 together, and you have the best of the best.Southern Girls is one of my all time favorites.

3-0 out of 5 stars One (major) disappointment to consider before purchasing.
This is not a bad collection.I'm sure there have been worse.My main complaint is the alternate version of "If You Want My Love."To me it's a major letdown because that is one of my favorite Cheap Trick songs and I really was expecting to hear it when I bought this.Now I wish I had not even bought it.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but (semi)close...[Really 3 stars out of 4...]
The Authorized Greatest Hits by (formerly) the best Rock N' Roll band of alltime, 'The Noise Boys from Rockford, Illinois', is beset by one basic problem - not enough songs from when Jon Brant helped Cheap Trick put out four of the Anglosentric(k?)

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good set, with some good suprises!
An excellent collection of 80's music.Includes the early and late 80's and has a very wide selection that includes everything but country music!:) There are some hard to find recording as well.Extremely good selection!

5-0 out of 5 stars perfect title for a perfect 80s collection
the only thing missing from this collection is a rubiks cube.someone dug deep into the archives to find the billy crystal song. some songs here are garbage "da da da" and "you dropped a bomb on me"....however....some songs featured here cant be found anywhere else like the theme song from "hill street blues". 7 discs and 140 songs and someone forgot about madonna / genesis / the police / def leppard / and AC-DC (just to name a few). "video killed the radio star" was dropped a notch to song #2 on disc one...quite a small tragedy considering that one song took pole position for MTVs debut. the song by foreigner "i want to know what love is" is perhaps one of the greatest songs of all time, the best slot would have been at the end of disc 7 instead of the middle of disc 5. everytime i hear the song "geopardy" i cant help to think of its parody song by weird al yankovik "i lost on geopardy". the price of the set is reasonable considering the average price per disc is about 12 dollars..... wake me up when the matching vidios are released on DVD.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice Overview of the 80's
This collection will save you alot of money. Think if you were to go out and buy every CD that these songs are on. Here you get over 141 top hit songs of the 80's on 7 discs plus an awesome collectable box and a novelty 80's book with facts and pictures for every single year. Information about all the songs, artists, events , tv shows, movies and happenings during the 80's. Open up the Box and you see all the popular dances of the 80's including the Head Spin, The Wave, The Tick, The Mannequin and more. It also shows you how to do them with pictures step by step! The box is truly unique. Heres the song listings disk by disk.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best live cd's you'll ever own!!
Back in 1977, Cheap Tricks management wanted to release a cd that would hold them over until the new release was finished. Dream Police was almost ready to roll, but it just needed a little extra time to be fully completed before it was released to the world. Up until now, Cheap Trick had not had much success in North America and they were counting on the Dream Police release to put them on the map. When they recorded Live a Budokan it was to help get things rolling and to be a stop gap measure to fill the void until the new release was ready. It was also only supposed to be released in Japan. Well as it turned out, it was one hell of a stop gap. Live At Budokan became the anthem in North America and broke the band big time. It was a tremendous success that helped propel the band to new heights. Songs like I Want You To Want Me became overnight hits. They had reached massive successalmost overnight or least it seemed. Cheap Trick was a hard working band and this over night success so to speak was well earned.
5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, the entire show!
Like The Who, Cheap Trick utterly dominates the stage as a live band. Unlike The Who, however, Cheap Trick has never really put out a truly extraordinary studio album (good albums yes, but not extraordinary). I think these are the reasons why Live at Budokan has always been a favorite of critics and listeners alike.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best live performances I've ever heard - it's a little cheesy but you'll still love it!
Cheap Trick is essentially a minor guilty pleasure and a little cheesy, but if you can get past that then you will find that they are an AMAZING band! Their strengths lay in their live performances, and this album especially proves this point (they were more of a "show" than an artistic, political or poetic group, and they knew this). What's so fascinating about "Cheap Trick At Budokan: The Complete Concert" is that it's so well-produced for a live show - you can hear everything clearly! The drums are especially easy and fun to listen to. The songs are all essentially cheesy-but-fun power pop songs with a hard rock twist, and even if they aren't the deepest songs in the world lyrically, you will still probably love them. Not all of the songs here are great, unfortunately (the original album only had 10 songs, but this has about 25 - that could explain it), but the album's length and the amount of good ones it DOES have more than make up for it. "Hello Kiddies", "Big Eyes" and "Surrender", for example, are all classic power pop songs from the early seventies. Singer Robin Zander does an excellent job with the vocals as fits perfectly as a power pop/hard rock vocalist - I'm pretty sure that most people will love him. The lyrics aren't all that interesting by themselves, but Robin definitely adds much needed energy to the mix. Like I said, the only downfall to this particular verson of the album is that some of the extra songs aren't that good (the original album wasn't the whole concert, but this is). Basically, if you're into power pop, the history of rock or if you're looking for an amazing live album, then "Cheap Trick At Budokan: The Complete Concert" is one of the best you buy! Absolutely recommended!

Editorial Review

After a four-year hiatus notable for some film and television soundtrack work, a lapsed contract, and a relaxed songwriting schedule Fountains of Wayne return with their third and best CD to date. The New York-based power-pop quartet delivers a diverse feast of infectious melodies and endlessly clever lyrics. Songwriters Adam Schlesinger and Chris Collingwood still slide on a sweet scale between the Beatles and the Monkees, but they've branched out from '60s sounds to include bona fide alt rock ("Little Red Light," "Bought for a Song"), orchestrated pop ("Halley's Waitress"), a country lark worthy of Dwight Yoakam ("Hung Up On You"), and hints of psychedelia ("Supercollider"). The Cars-flavored "Bright Future in Sales" and "Stacy's Mom" warrant heavy-rotation airplay. Following their acclaimed eponymous debut and the vastly underrated Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Their best to date!
This is so far the best CD from Fountains of Wayne.It's filled with so many strongs songs.Some of my favorites include "Bright future in sales" and "Hey Julie".One of my all-time favorite lyrics is from the song "No Better Place":
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Music and Lyrics - Thoroughly Enjoyable
sA friend introduced me to this CD and I don't think I've adequately thanked him.I'd never heard of the band, and I'm sure I'd have remembered an odd name like Fountains of Wayne.
5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible
I've been a FoW fan from the beginning, and they have NEVER disappointed me.I've been listening to this CD for years, and I still sometimes just sit and listen to it.The harmonies in "Valley Winter Song" almost made me fall off my chair the first time I heard the song.I think "Mexican Wine" might be a better radio pop song than Stacy's Mom, but Stacy's Mom rode the strength of a funny and relatable concept combined with a sexy and funny video.I still think "Hailey's Waitress" isn't a great song, but its OK.My biggest disappointment with this CD is that "Yours and Mine" is only a minute long!!But maybe the song's greatness lies in the fact that it leaves us wanting more and more of the same song, and we also just don't want the CD to be over. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent soundtrack
This soundtrack did something that all record stores should do - it introduced me to new and worthwhile music. Considering the movie was about a record store, well put two and two together.
2-0 out of 5 stars Not a good representation
The movie "Empire Records" has one of the best "song scores" in any movie ever. As far as use of music goes, it's right up there with "Dazed and Confused" and "Rushmore." The problem with this CD soundtrack, though, is that it contains some of the least memorable songs from the movie. Instead, they use songs by more well-known artists that were used as background music during dialogue scenes. I was listening to this earlier and I had a very difficult time placing where the songs had been in the movie. It's an abosulute crime that the song "Seems" by Queen Sarah Saturday (the song that is played when the kids are opening the store) does not appear on this disc, as well as "Rock n' Roll EGA," and "I Shot the Devil." Instead of buying this, I suggest hunting down the songs individually.

5-0 out of 5 stars MUST BUY
And one correction to "lightremedy"... the version of "Hey Joe" on the movie is not by Hendrix, it's another cover from The Dirt Clods. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars But....
But, will never understand why the song "Time and Time Again" is not included.It's their first song that I heard and absolutely had to have, having heard it for the very first time on the "I Was A Teenage Zombie" soundtrack album.

4-0 out of 5 stars Prepare to be "Blown" away.
Whenever I think of The Smithereens, I think of great simple rock n' roll. No gimmicks, no categorizing, just straight-up rock. Nothing here is really that heavy though, and sure you can call it pop-rock, but it's still catchy as hell. And this really does play through like their ultimate album. Who doesn't know "Blood And Roses", "Only A Memory", or "Blues Before & After"? Of course "Girl Like You" is on here also, with one of the best opening riffs ever. If you only know a few songs here, know that they're all as good as the hits are, roughly. I had "11" for many years and didn't think I needed this, but once I got it I truly was "Blown To Smithereens".

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Rock n' Roll
A terrific collection of the band's best stuff.The Smithereens are in the tradition of the very best American rock n' roll.Fender guitars, solid melodies and performed without any pretense whatsoever. You can't listen to their music and not smile. It is still bewildering why this band never became more commercially successful than it did.But, for those of us who really enjoy their music, it's probably a good thing - they just kept doing what they do best.

One of those rare albums where EVERY song on it is excellent. Each track on here are filled with extremely catchy hooks that will stick in your head for months. I still have a hard time getting some of the songs out of my head, after I heard for the first time about 4 months ago.

There isn't a song in this collection that isn't at least good.Catchy, quirky lyrics, with British Invasion inspired melodies.Be careful, or after listening to this album you'll catch yourself singing it.Radiation Vibe, Sick Day, and Please Don't Rock Me Tonight are my personal favorites. ...

The New Pornographers' debut album was the stuff of legend, a near-perfect collection of catchy songs filled with lush sonics, anthemic sing-alongs, and retro pop hooks. Seemingly out of nowhere, the band--featuring Zumpano's Carl Newman, Destroyer's Dan Bejar, and alt-country goddess Neko Case--forged a power pop masterpiece. Read more

This album is simply non-stop fun. I can't stop listening. It's catchy goodness will surely rope you in.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great album by an enormously talented band
The second album by the greatest band ever to hail from Vancouver is another winner.I have no idea why they aren't among the biggest names in music.They are well known, but they should be huge.Every song on the disc just ripples with talent and musical intelligence.This is without question some of the most energetic, brilliant, and passionate music in indie rock.
5-0 out of 5 stars Electric Version
This album was released three years after the New Pornographers awesome debut album. This album is similar, but has a more glossy feel than the previous album. The album is definately more polished. Great synths and percussion throughout the album. Electric Version is an enjoyable and easy listen, chock-full of hungry hooks and brimming with indie rock's classic humility. ... Read more
