better records of its kind.

al-Ḥubb sanat 70 videorecording = Love in the 70's

[Longhorn Review] al-Ḥubb sanat 70 videorecording = Love in the 70's

Material Type: All, movies — Posted on February 17, 2010, 11:46 am

By: ikhrāj Maḥmūd Dhū al-Fiqār

Please do not watch this movie if you do not have to... Simply terrible, and I do
not consider myself a harsh critic. It has the ridiculous script of a 70's American
movie that so bad it couldn't be accepted by an American audience or producers, so
it was just translated into Arabic and pawned off to an Arab audience. To me it
seemed culturally insensitive at worst, without culture at all at best, and the only
thing "Arabic" about it was the language.

When giants walked the Earth: a biography of Led Zeppelin / Mick Wall.

[Longhorn Review] When giants walked the Earth: a biography of Led Zeppelin / Mick Wall.

Material Type: All, books — Tags: music biography — Posted on February 11, 2010, 4:29 pm

By: Wall, Mick.

This is a unique biography. The author Mick Wall weaves in cool fictional
monologues by his main characters to great effect...the tone is sometimes nostalgic,
although more often quite bitter...while I could not begin to say how accurately the
author portrays the complexities of each member's personality, one does get a sense
of the general temperament of these largely mythologized figures. Moreover, the
narratives provide both an informative history lesson on the life and music of this
phenomenal band, and a quite humanizing account of the music industry in 1960's and
70's.

Machine head sound recording / Deep Purple.

[Longhorn Review] Machine head sound recording / Deep Purple.

Material Type: All, books — Tags: Music — Posted on February 11, 2010, 3:13 pm

By: Deep Purple

"Machine Head" is not merely an influential and genre-defining moment in hard
rock...it is a collection of sincerely hot funshine dashed off by one supremely
talented ensemble...and the production is timeless...and yes, Ritchie Blackmore
still rules....
