Rolling Stone (7/14/94, p.110) - 3.5 Stars - "...Amid an altogether first-rate record that's both raw and disciplined...those more direct songs strip away the catalog of eccentricities and circle behind the enigma to reveal the man, David Byrne..."Spin (9/94, p.141) - Highly Recommended - "...No longer practicing cross-cultural cryogenics, Byrne simply dashes DAVID BYRNE with essence brought back from his musical travels..."Entertainment Weekly (5/27/94, p.88) - "...this fourth solo album since the [Talking] Heads' demise is his most stripped-down effort in ages....It's nice to hear a gimmick-free Byrne, but bear in mind that straightforward songs from this guy are still fairly twisted by any reasonable standard..." - Rating: B+Dirty Linen (12/94-1/95, p.69) - "...The former Talking Head is in fine form, sounding unusually desperate in his appealingly vulnerable way, imparting mega poetry (sometimes in a slithery sing-speak) that from other mouths would most certainly sound affected..."Option (10/94, p.96) - "...this album gives a whole new musical framework to his persona. Lyrical themes are still skewed; a poetic look at an alternate universe in which love is never what it seems..."186.1205

Spin (p.104) - "With his distressed falsetto, David Byrne is new wave's first definitive voice."Uncut (p.82) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[The] remarkable cohabitation of painterly, arty ambitions and fascination with the lissom qualities of the groove can be seen from their very first single."Mojo (Publisher) (p.116) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Their claustrophobic tunes of social unease, mathematical arrangements and front man David Byrne's self-conscious take on mundane events elevated them far beyond what would become new wave."0.5299562

Entertainment Weekly (7/23/99, p.69) - "...they electro-massage David Byrne, lead Baaba Maal to the echo chamber, and ship Stereolab further out in space....It's music for coming down when the sun's comping up..." - Rating: B+Alternative Press (10/99, p.74) - 4 out of 5 - "...these dubbed out remixes abduct the original tracks, inserting sharp objects and strange devices into [them], while some simply reconstruct the blueprint.... The resulting trance is addictive, and it validates the duo's cultish repuation."Magnet (8-9/99, p.90) - "...Just slip on some earphones, light up that Cohiba and press your martini into service: The Corporation is open for business and cold gettin' paid."CMJ (5/3/99, p.33) - "...ABDUCTIONS & RESTORATIONS is a smooth, languid offering of chilled-out dub and trip-hop grooves. An eclectic array of talents, including David Byrne, Stereolab, Pizzicato 5, Gus Gus and Black Uhuru, serve as the duo's source material."0.4637117

Spin (p.60) - Ranked #39 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2005" - "[F]or indie rock that's obsessed with history, that decayed-reel production feels right."Entertainment Weekly (No. 842, p.95) - "...APOLOGIES is the stuff fanzine dreams are made of..." - Grade: B+Magnet (p.112) - "Wolf Parade hails from Montreal, courts a post-punk-informed sound, has a vocalist whose quirky tenor yelp recalls David Byrne and attained early buzz-band status on the strength of its energetic, emotional performances."Mojo (Publisher) (p.96) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[I]t's a turbulent, ever mood-shifting listen - perhaps rather of its time....Engaging, inventive and emotionally charged..."0.3278937

Entertainment Weekly (3/15/96, p.65) - "The Red Hot Organization's eighth compilation--the proceeds of which benefit AIDS groups--explores post-rock with the same agility as 1995's RED HOT + BOTHERED did the indie scene. The record morphs from trip-hoppy rhythms to ambient echoes to trance..."- Rating: A-JazzTimes (7-8/96, p.84) - "...an ambitious collection that re-imagines the various progressive threads of rock, hip-hop and jazz as one massive, twitching organism....26 cuts worth of head-rush..."Option (7-8/96, p.122) - "...Think of these techie wizards and their oeuvres as sonic stealth fighters, hugging the grooves below radar range to score hit after hit on the status quo..."Melody Maker (3/16/96, p.38) - "...beautifully arranged...works as an intriguing, sporadically suprising and eventually enthralling journey of sound..."0.1893038

"...Numbingly beautiful....Sumptuous chinoiserie..." -- Rating: B+ Entertainment Weekly "...A film of unique, quite unsurpassed visual splendor, THE LAST EMPEROR makes for a fascinating trip to another world..." Variety "...[The film] has the feel of other-worldliness, of science fiction..." Film Comment "...If you want a staggering and certainly singular movie experience, THE LAST EMPEROR will do very nicely..." Los Angeles Times "[T]here's no faulting the use of genuine locations, the magnificent costumes of Vittorio Storaro's breathtaking cinematography." Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "[D]izzyingly respendent....Bernardo Bertolucci's 1987 heavyweight is, perhaps, the last known sighting of the old-school epic."Empire0.1577532

"...Brilliantly realized....SPIDER is as harrowing a portrait of one man's tormented isolation as the commercial cinema has produced..." New York Times "...Cronenberg seems in total control and certainly gets sterling performances..." USA Today "...An artful, carefully regulated explosion of craft led by Miranda Richardson and the that prince of prickly intensity, Ralph Fiennes..." Entertainment Weekly "...Fiennes is at his best in SPIDER, rising to the challenge of a dark, demanding role..."Rolling Stone "...The movie is well made and acted....There are considerable artists at work her: Cronenberg, Fiennes and Richardson....The details of the film and the performances are meticulously realized..." Chicago Sun-Times "Bleak, unsettling and very disturbing, this is another reality-bending classic from Canada's finest." Uncut21.72145
