Tyson: The Movie - Platinum Knockout Edition
I bought this film on a punt, and had read some dodgy reviews but knew that as a character i found him fascinating - facial tattoos and all. The interview is pretty bog standard except that it's edited quite interestingly as it is overlaid and there appear to be multiple interviews at once all overlapping. The Blu ray extras include analysis of many (if not all) of his previous fights.
I gave this four stars as i found it really moving - quite a blokey film and his relationship with Cuss Demato is inspirational. Definitely a good film - i recommend it.

I really like this album although it is sonically quite different from their previous style. Personally i really like it as it's darker and full of more interesting sounds than perhaps before. Nowhere as good as Dummy but overall a strong offering. Only aspects that i miss are the scratching and the Hip Hop basslines but hey it's not 1994 anymore and evolution is to be expected from artists. Stand out tracks for me are: Silence, Hunter and Deep water. Silence is out and out a banging tune and the folksy Deep Water; a nice surprise.
Buy it - you won't be disappointed!

I really love this album. Am a fan of her anyway and got the chance to see her sing this on her recent UK tour. The night was my best concert ever and i really enjoyed these songs at the time. 'got my hands' on this album early and listen to it all the time at the mo. My favourite is Buttons which is upbeat and fun, I also like Lentil a lot (live version on croissant), The single Day too Soon and i love Electric Bird. The Girl you lost to (cocaine) is also briliant and Academia is fun too. Little Black sandals is beautiful and love I Go To Sleep too. At the concert she said that her record company like her to produce downtempo music like her second album but i think this album has greater range and is a better representation of her and all her facets as a person and an artist - in essence it's between the first and second albums' mood. All the other tracks get three stars on my itunes but i think the others will grow on me too. Cop this album if you like her or if you just like tuneful music and good singing- you won't be disappointed!
