Man of Aran was a silent film, and almost remains so with the new soundtrack.

It goes without saying that, if you're an El Chicano follower, you cannot pass up this two-DVD set.

The set list alternates from fast-tempo flare ups of energy back to slow crooning that, quite honestly, leaves much to be desired.

For all the appreciation their multitudes of fans have shown the Lips, they return it here in waves via all the extras included in the DVD menu.
Written by Laura Hamlett Saturday, 28 July 2007 10:57Backing band the Believers don't even make an appearance until the 13th track. What this means, then, is 11 solo acoustic songs, one with a bonus female co-lead, followed by four absolutely captivating and rocking tunes. Kind of an uneven choice for a live DVD.

Cohen's supposed appreciation for the mysteries of women comes off time and again more like that of a callous braggart with a Sharpie in a men's room stall. If he wasn't one of the most gifted lyricists rock has ever known, he would be left to write with his dick. "Sexy Intellectual," indeed.

With Axl Rose, we want to remember the Axl in the black-and-white "Sweet Child O' Mine" video, not the bloated, corn-rowed Axl in his last high-profile appearance, winded and sweaty after a semi-rousing set of "Rocket Queen" at the 2003 MTV VMAs. We want to remember Adler, Izzy, and the summer of '88 when the Gunners broke loose of the Sunset Strip scene.

Whether pulled from the archives or just a few years ago, the Burma performances are uniformly outstanding, revealing the true foundation of their legend: intense, unpredictable live shows.

Not coincidentally, my research determined that "Okonokos" is representative of a Hawaiian word for an unusually docile species of a bear with a growl that's so soothing, it lulls intruders and/or prey into a meditative, almost trans-like, state.

This no-frills disc is a seamless document of a studio concert broadcast on Danish television around the time of the original release of Cash's legendary "Man in Black" single.

The music videos from this era find the Clan at its most charismatic, despite ultra-low budgets that have members repeatedly mugging for the camera with toy swords in hand and the festering decay of Staten Island looming behind them.

Friday, 30 June 2006 18:00While it may not break new ground, the documentary is still a good retrospective of her career to date.
Friday, 30 June 2006 18:00The Greatest Videos is a perfect time capsule of 1990, at that perfect moment where the Poisons and the Mötley Crües began to topple, but just before everyone began to wear plaid.
Friday, 30 June 2006 18:00Like all concert films, it takes away a bit of your ability to pick and choose what to watch on stage, but the DVD offers an invigorating show. If you liked the album, you will love the show; for the rest of you, there is still much to offer.
Friday, 30 June 2006 18:00If somehow you didn’t know who Strummer was, you’d think this was just a documentary of an ordinary Joe trying to make it in the music business—and, in a way, that’s exactly what the film’s about.
Friday, 30 June 2006 18:00The strong feelings and rhetoric espoused will likely leave the uninitiated wondering who fuck these guys are and why they were so important.
