artist: Scissor sisters
Review: I THINK THE SCISSOR SISTERS ARE AMAZING! Nobody realises the full amazment of them until they see them live.. If you havent already.. then go! I went to 2 gigs in a row in July and was lucky enough to get into the crotch pit.. They were the best two gigs of my life.. Some people really need to give these gorgeous, talented musicians a chance!

Review: your angle looks very close to mine. stop by my photos

Eddie, Los Angeles, CA 12/04/07
Review: Shiny Toy Guns - TOTALLY RIPPED OFF the idea and arrangement style for this cover from BRAINCLAW - Brain Claw had COVERED STRIPPED in February of 2005 BEFORE Shiny Toy Guns had ever recorded their cover version of Stripped. Shiny Toy Guns got their cover version on the Goth Electro Tribute to Depeche Mode in October 2005. Brain Claw's cover version was released into the market on February 7, 2005. Shiny Toy Guns didn't even record their version until WAY LATER... and Shiny Toy Guns STOLE Brainclaw's arrangement and style for their cover... SHINY TOY GUNS rip-off allot of artists (illegally) Don't buy it.... don't support bands that are in the business of RIPPING OFF other artists! You can get Brainclaw's version of Stipped as a FREE DOWNLOAD ON THE INTERNET.... I hope Shiny Toy Guns get what's coming to them .... they constantly STEAL FROM OTHER ARTISTS... everything they have put out is a rip.. from allot of other bands/performers/composers..... SOON... Shiny Toy Guns fans ! will start uncovering the truth about Shiny Toy Guns.... they will peel away the outer layer of this band and see the ugly core.

Donna Talbot, Hebron, CT 12/04/07
artist: Brian Culbertson's Soulful Christmas
Review: This show is a must-see (and hear) to properly kick off the holiday season. There was not one "snooze" moment in the entire evening and every one of these musicians was in top form. Culberson shares the stage beautifully, giving credit to every performer. I was extremely impressed and recommend that everyone that has the opportunity to see this show do so.
Happy Holidays!
