A Slow Action Movie


Compared to episodes 1 and 2, this movie stinks! The action is slow. There is so little lightsaber fights. Actually, there's only one. And it's slow. If Vader could defeat the counsel, Luke would be dead by now! They should make changes to this movie. And Anakins face in this movie is snow white not tanned!

Very Engaging...


In my opinion this CD is not one of the best Gibson's products. I find that the music is dull, intrusive and not very well matched with the theme. Howling featured in two tracks doesn't match either: it may be that of a monkey but it sounds pretty much like a wolf. For the price is not a great deal.

A true juggernaut of an album


I bought this CD what seems to be a million years ago. If it was an LP, I would have worn the grooves smooth. It is omnipresent, like a juggernaut crushing everything in its path. I can't get away from the songs here - they are in commercials on TV, movie previews, on the radio, and in my dreams. Who would think mixing down home gospel and elecronica would go together as well as chocolate and peanut butter. I know some purists can't stand this album and some mainstreamers don't get it. Fine. For something to be worthy it doesn't have to be universally loved, just talked about. I think this album will have legs, and people will be listening carefully for years to come.

the greatest live album ever recorded


I acknowledge the bias that comes with these reviews -- you wouldn't be writing if you didn't like the music. Having said that: this REALLY IS the greatest live album ever recorded. And I've heard a lot of them.
Time, place and audience come together on both of these discs. If you own even one Elton John album, it should be this one. And then you will find yourself looking for tickets his next time through town.
