5.0 out of 5 stars A great album., 23 Jun 2007
This review is from: Puzzle (Audio CD)
I didnt even know who this band was before i saw them support Muse at wembley stadium. But when they came on stage i thought the music was really good. Most of the music they performed were taken from this album so i bought it. I have not regretted it and this is now one of most favourite bands. The best songs are Living is a problem....., saturday superhouse, who's got a match, a whole child ago, the conversation is, now im everyone, and semi mental. So you get 7 great tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best genesis albums., 28 April 2007
This review is from: Nursery Cryme (Audio CD)
Couldnt agree more with the previous reviewer. This album and others like selling england were what genesis were all about. The creepy sound and long song lenths 22mins on suppers ready on foxtrot. Weird lyrics and great guitar playing. The more modern genesis got the worse they got appart from no son of mine thats a great song. The peter gabriel albums are stronger and more imaginative and this album is one of their best. Ive got nearly all genesis albums apart from foxtrot ive only just listened to it and its brilliant, but this sticks out, why? because of two songs The Musical Box and Return Of The Giant Hogweed, both creepy and a joy to listen to. The last song on this album is odd but a good ending to the album. If you want to start collecting genesis albums start with either this or selling england as they are both two of the bands best work. Genesis now on tour is great and many people say its not fair that peter gabriel isnt going to be in it. But there was a rumour going round that Peter Gabriel didnt want anything to do with the new tour, but despite that he did create a great band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its not that bad, 18 April 2007
This coffee machine is not that bad. All you have to do about the water dripping while pouring into the water tank is use a tea towel or something to stop water from getting everywhere. Apart from that it makes lovely coffee. BUT the gauge is different to the jug. Ive had mine for nearly 2 years it was a replacement for my cookworks one which died after 4 hours of use (literally). So its not bad for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 17 April 2007
First im just going to say im 18 so just goes to show that the old comedy is the best. Love this great classic comedy series and have just purchased yes prime minister series 1 and 2. Think Paul Eddington plays his part very well (same as the good life) and the script is hilarious and clever. I have many old comedy dvd's starting from 1960-2007 and this is one of my favourite. Its outstanding. Also if you didnt know Margaret Thatcher also loved this and aparently write a small script for it herself it icluded her, paul and nigel hawthorne i think it was nigel hawthorne but the old pm also liked it. If you like any comedy you will enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, but inacurate., 24 Mar 2007
This review is from: Elizabeth I [DVD] (DVD)
I think this is absolutely brilliant. Helen Mirren plays Elizabeth the way i imagened her to be. Jeremy Irons is also fantastic and acting some scenes with a breeze. The only issue i have with this tv/film is that it does have the most horrific executions and tortures i have ever seen in a film e.g if you actually want to see what hung drawn and quartered would have been like to witness then this wont let you down (yuk). Also mary queen of scots being executed is horrific, when the axe comes down the camera is starring right at her neck, it also takes 2 strokes of the axe to cut the head off. (histroricly innacurate). But appart from that its great. Just dont faint while watching the gory bits. Helen mirren does the famous heart and stomach of a king speech wounderfully. Its on two discs 2 hours on each disc, so its about 4 hours long. If you love histry you wont be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars From a mac and windows user point of view., 17 Mar 2007
Im a mac and windows user. Ive just upgraded my xp pc to vista and it looks and runs extremely well. Installed the sims 2 and all expansions and runs it the best ive ever played it. Vista is easier to use the same as mac osx tiger. It installs every usb device in seconds after plugging it in. instant search copied from apple runs better than on mac osx its more precise and doesent chuck everything you have on your pc in front of you after touching one button on the keyboard. Its very stable hasnt said error or crashed yet seems very reliable so far. The overall look is totally different and looks better than mac osx tiger/leopard. the system is a pain to buy for in the way of virus software but you can download free bullguard version for 32bit vista pc's a 64bit version is also availiable as beta. I did buy vista already pre installed on a new pc so here are the specs if you want to install vista on a pc you already have:

Ram: At least 1gb for home premium edition.

Processor: Least AMD Athlon or Intel Pentium core duo or 4.

Graphics: Ati lots of ati work with vista or at least nvidia geforce 6-700 series. (ati radeon graphics cards dont work correctly with vista)

Any cd/dvd drive should be ok.

I would also recomend downloading the vista upgrade system check from microsoft. That tells you what edition of vista your pc is capable of running. Take my advice if you want to get vista dont bother with vista home basic as its really not worth it for more than email/internet use not games or video editing stuff.

Vista is good and i also use apple computers and vista so far is nicer and more powerful than mac osx tiger.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want cd quality lp records look no further., 26 Feb 2007
I bought this to replace the goodmans record player cd player and cassete player all in one because that produced awful sound quality lp's, so i decided to give out my hard arned cash on this. I wasnt wrong in doing that as when i put on selling england by the pound by genesis on it you wouldnt be able to tell the difference between lp and cd. In fact if you like more bass and more extreme crisper sound look no further.

Thanks Pioneer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good., 1 Feb 2007
Jennifer Saunders really is the best in this selection. Most of these arnt movies. Many sketches are parodies of the house of elliot, music videos e.g. shakespeares sister (very funny), gladiators,thelma and louise, and films like aliens, silence of the lambs, short sketches that last for 30 secs are also great. The best sketches are silence of the lambs, the house of idiot, and dickens daughters. If you like french and saunders you wont be dissapointed. The christmas special with star wars being the main sketches throughout is very good as that great hilarious scottish woman playing anakin and jennifer giving one of the jedis a scottish accent is brilliant(not ewen mcgregor) . The only sketch i didnt like was the guns and roses one, as it just wasnt funny unless you like to hear somone groaning threw a guns and roses song for two mins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Funny (oh im sweating cobbs, i like it warm but i dont like it this warm), 15 Jan 2007
Everything he says is true. You do do the things that he jokes about in this performance and mum wants a bungalow tour. I think its spitting is hiliarious, and 'its that fine rain that soaks you through that'. He talks much about going on holiday in blackpool and abroad. The special features are good the interview is interesting and the deleted bits are just as funny as the main show you see on the dvd. The way he acts them out is so funny you will be on the floor laughing. Also he comes out with little funny lines, he says that his mum used to hoover at three oclock in the morning before going on holiday how you can make a joke out of that is genious. If you like 2p arcade machines there are jokes about that too. Alton towers queue's, slippers, dinnerladies, las vagas trips, people waiting for bags at airports anything that is anything to do about holidays. Im a fan of dave allen and victoria wood too so if youre a fan of them you will love this. Oh and also the why do mums buy crap pop jokes are the best. If you love comedy just get it.

P.s. learn how to make rose perfume by watching this dvd, believe me the avon lady will worry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece, 17 Oct 2006
Saw this film in the cinema and i said then i thought it was brilliant. Even religious people can watch this film because at the end Tom Hanks says something that can make anyone watch it without being offended. I personally dont believe in any religion but this film is very good and my friend who is jewish wants to see it. Please dont listen to the reviews that say its herecy because thats just an extremists view if you a normal film lover then you will watch this film and love it. The film is very close to the book too with only a few bits taken out so if you are a fan of the book you wont be dissapointed.

Watch this film whatever you believe in, its good.
