4.0 out of 5 stars Good Debut., 4 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Mason Jennings (Audio CD)
Nice music,and certainly not at all bad if you like folky Americana,but he also tries to sound a bit too much like Dylan at times and can maybe overplay this,but pretty pleasant on the whole and a good start for a gifted singer/songwriter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sophie has come out of the wilderness!, 22 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Wilderness (Audio CD)
After the misstep with her over self indulgent Timbre record,this is a good record,it reminds me at times of Whaler as it is quite poppy,she certainly seems more happier with life and there are some nice sunny tracks on here "Surfer Girl" "Beautiful Girl" etc,as with most things with this artist you hear things that are out of the ordinary on her tracks a dog barking in the background for instance.
There are a couple of bad tracks where Sophie tries her hand at a cover of "Feeling Good" which frankly isn't good and "You Make Me High" in which she seems to be straining to hit the right notes but overall a decent effort from a talented lady.

4.0 out of 5 stars Country Pop, 6 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Bonavista (Audio CD)
I only came across this lady through her work in the Canadian `super group` SHAYE their last record "Lake of Fire" is a particular favourite of mine which manages to have some quite beautiful harmonies between the three ladies in the group,this last record of this group was also a surprise as it sounded more country pop than their debut "The Bridge".

Listening to this record I now know that Kim must have had a bigger say in those tunes as on here she is in full Country Pop mode.
Also I note this was out in the mid 90's when another Canadian lady(Shania Twain)was at her peak and in many ways if you enjoyed her then you will also enjoy this record,I like a couple of the songs on here a lot "Cry Crazy" and "Good Man" being very well done,I'm not keen on the `hit` single "Jerk"(well it was a hit in her native Canada) but overall it's a decent enough set of songs from a talented singer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Will divide people!, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Division Street (Audio CD)
Your either going to hate this new direction or love it.
All I can think when I listen to this is that he has changed his style too much from his rather good first record,maybe he thought he had to?
Gone are the soft tones of his first record and his more famous dad which so enamoured me to him.
Most of the songs are ruined for me by a horrible drum `noise` banging away and it seems like Harper is another who has fallen victim to the loudness wars,also his vocals are well down in the mix, he sounds like he's singing in the room next to the studio especially on the title song "Division Street."
Although things do pick up slightly on "Eternal Questions" mainly because the chorus is pretty catchy it is still spoiled by the music!
Sometimes on here i am reminded of The Connells especially "Breathe Out Love" which has a nice jangle guitar,if only he had more like this on here I might have liked it more.
A very disappointing follow up spoiled by horrible `modern` production values.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for Royal Mail., 20 Feb. 2013

These crayons are used a lot in Royal Mail,they are use for the letters that are being sent back i.e the `dead letters` to cancel out the address on the front and to mark the address on the back(or front)
The crayons are fit for that purpose but I really can't see what other purpose somebody would get out of buying them,especially as they are all the same colour.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tinny!, 1 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a big Sony fan and always used to get Sony earphones,some cheap ones once lasted me over 2 years,using them everyday out in the wind,rain and snow and the odd hot spell,but my previous earphones before buying these latest Sony earphones was a set of Skullcandy Titans which where a bit clunky but had a great sound to them these Sony earphones are very comfortable in the ears but the sound is horrible,the vocals on most of the artist I've listened to on my Sony Mp3 player sounds like there singing in the next room,i.e muffled,maybe I've gotten a duff pair but these are the first Sony earphones I've been disappointed in.
EDIT: Had these since the end of January and at the end of May one of the ear pieces isn't working which is pretty shoddy in my book,earphones should last longer than 4 months,the problem seems to be at the jack point.

4.0 out of 5 stars Work of fiction?, 26 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well I guess you have to be a postman to realise that this is actually a very good and very witty ' story.'
The sad fact is this is pretty much what goes on in delivery offices up and down the land,the only thing I would say it's far more likely to be an actual manager who does the bullying.

O.k I bought this as it was cheap but it should have lasted longer than TWO days,after the first day it had a wobbler and stuttered into life eventually on the second day it wouldn't work at all,waste of money.

If you like the pop band IVY you will find much to like here,Andy Chase one part of said band, explores his more electronic style on here,it has a nice lazy trip hop side or dream pop if you like vibe to it.
There are 8 tracks with vocals and 5 instrumentals that might seem a bit excessive, but the instrumentals really do help create a nice easy listening experience,I find this perfect background music or a nice wind down record after a heavy night out.
As his first `solo` record it's not as good as his next two but it shows that Chase is a talented guy and a decent singer,best track on here(for me)is "Summer Parade" which does indeed remind you of a nice Summers day with it's bouncy sing-a-long chorus.
