I think that the reviewer that gave this CD a single star has not heard this CD because:
1. It is an excellent CD 2. The guy who did it, did the Coldplay CD 3. The site he gave is the Record Label that this CD is on and this CD can be bought there
I have listened to this CD over and over again and it is one of my favorite string tribute CDs. I own all of the CDs that this group has put out and if you want to see a list of all of the CDs they have done, you can check out their String Tribute Forum at:
i respect the whole neo-classical thing, but this cd is bad. sounds like somone sequenced the songs in their synthesizer. check out http://www.thetributeto.com/acdc/ . they perform their tributes, and do it well. i haven't heard their ac/dc tribute, but their other tributes (linkin park, 311, coldplay) are awesome.
I read about this CD on an AC/DC Fan site and they had a link to purchase it here. I bought the CD without hearing any clips or anything. So, buying it sight unseen, made me feel a little aprehensive.
Well, when it arrived I couldn't wait. I took it with me to work and played it in the car on the way. WHAT A GREAT CD & A GREAT IDEA!!! I love this CD! After hearing how well done this CD was, I decided to do something special for my wife ....and .... I took the next day off from work (which was a Friday) and prepared a wonderful steak dinner while my wife was at her job. I got a really good bottle of wine and I set the table with our finest table settings ... Candles lit and everything prepared ...When she got home, I had the candles burning, the lights were out, the table was set and I started the CD.... KAHPOWW!!! She freaked completely out! Needless to say, we had a wonderful time and what a way to romance my Rock & Roll Queen!!!
We've been fans of AC/DC since the 80s and this is probably one of our favorite AC/DC CDs, now!
I would suggest this CD to anyone who loves AC/DC and wants to add some spark to their romance .... We have candlelit dinners a couple times a month now and this CD is the main attraction!!!
Step Into Liquid tries too hard to accomplish something spectacular. Like so many surf movies before it, it tries to "capture the essence" of surfing. Dana Brown tries to capture what it means to be a surfer by demonstrating surfers from all walks of life. Other than this, the movie has no cohesiveness; it's just a bunch of random people talking about something they happened to love to do- surfing. Dana Brown's tiring narration sounds like the equivalent of a sports announcer who dropped out of high school. Sadly, the script and production of this movie work against the very thing it sets out to do-- kill the stereotype of the slacker surfer beach bum duuuuuude. Here's an idea, Dana: when you come home after an inspiring session, instead of turning on your TV, pick up your notepad and write down what it feels like to watch the erratic rocks and fish and life underneath you while you glide on a wave with the heat of the mid-august sun crystalizing the salt in your hair.
All grievances aside, this movie does have a few good scenes (the kids in ireland surfing together, jesse billauer surfing, etc.). But despite its moments, most of it really only amounts to big-money production and terrible writing. Lots of expensive helicopter shots, big names, high quality fancy-butt video, big waves, you know the drill. In the realm of art, this movie does nothing to capture what it feels like to ride waves.
very good, but not the best
This is a very worthwhile successor to his father's "Endless Summer" series, but with a slightly different goal: to figure out the "stoke," that drives people to surf. His narration is very good, with the same dry humor as his father's. It's a relentlessly optimistic movie that makes you feel like you need to be out on a board RIGHT NOW. Still, it's a bit too big-budget for my tastes, with a lot of that extreme big-wave surfing focus that detracts from the soul of the film although the segments are fun to watch. I enjoyed the segments on the Great Lakes and Texas scenes the most, seeing the extremes people will go to in seriously wave-deprived areas. The "bring peace to Northern Ireland" scene was a bit much. Still, I intend to own the DVD when it comes out.
If you want something more akin to the original "Endless Summer," track down a copy of "Singlefin: Yellow" at your local shop; it's definitely the best surfing film of 2003.
Stunnig Movie very creative surfers
The movie itself is a great movie but surfing in the lakes is great. the features of disk 2 the dvd rom are great i really recomend this movie but you really have to like surfing cause if you dont like it you wont understand some terms of what they're talking about. Also Wingnut(endless summer 2) teaches you to surf. Awesome movie
