5.0 out of 5 stars put the beautiful coaters and other stuff elsewhere and then loaded it ..., 14 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If I only had time, I would play with this all day long, day after day. Unbelievable quality compared to most of today's products. I cleared out the bottom draw section, put the beautiful coaters and other stuff elsewhere and then loaded it with all my little tubes of watercolours, assorted brushes, inks, pens, nibs, etc etc. Now everything is in one delightful gorgeous sturdy box, apart from the paper, of course, which you find yourself getting through very quickly once you open the lid! I am looking forward to sharing this box of delights with my Grandchildren.
The box also serves as an ornament in our house when it's closed, so you never have to hide it away and forget where you put it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Read Operators Manual carefully - don't pour hot wax from unit. It will wreck the thermostat and invalidate the warranty., 6 Jun. 2013
I've had mine for 2 days. Read the 5 easy steps card, put in some scented wax from another source, switched on and enjoyed. Unfortunately, scented wax disagreed with my skin, so, having not read read the final caution on page 2 of the instruction manual, and not wanting to wait another day for time consuming setting and reheating, I poured the hot wax out and replaced with the unscented wax provided. It hasn't switched on since. On closer reading, the warranty is invalidated, so I now use it as a bread bin. Using the big slow cooker for the wax instead. Should have done that in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mindblowing!, 6 Jun. 2013
The combined effect of Scott's music and poetry; and the sheer humanity inherent within these works will blow you away. It goes without saying, which is possibly why no-one else has yet hit the 5 star button. I have bought 2 from Amazon; 1 for the car as my mini doesn't have a full spec record player and I don't own mint original LP's. Hearing the instruments as they were meant to be heard is a revelation and for me, quite amazing, especially as I have heard them hundreds of times before and thought I knew every nuance. I clearly didn't. It's almost like hearing them again for the first time. The revealed clarity of the instruments which you knew were there is in itself breathtaking.

No need to be pedantic about the packaging which, incidentally, I think is great. This is about the original LP's as they were meant to be heard: no extras. Because the remastering is so brilliant, the non-inclusion of extras is, understandably, disappointing. You want that clarity of sound on all of Scott's other music of the time, but this collection does what it says on the box: no more, no less, no compromises. Frustrating, but if you are a Scott fan, you are used to that. No need to take it out on his star rating!!

It's the music that matters and whether you are a first-timer or a lifer, buy this or regret it. Seriously. A life changer.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not therapeutic!, 1 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered the yellow "soft" product as advised by my arthritis therapist adviser. It arrived as pictured but with no labelling or instructions. This seems to be a very different product to that I used in the hospital. I found it extremely hard to handle. If you are looking for a hospital grade soft therapy product . . . .

5.0 out of 5 stars A work of Art, 2 Jan. 2012
This is a work of art, though neither Adagio nor Archangel. It is, however, a haunting, gothic type of modern classical instrumental which fires the imagination. The first movement is very empty sounding but persevere through the movements and the piece evolves gradually into an intriguing mix of short bursts of beautiful strings interrupted "Drift" style with modern layers (birds?!) but also containing shots of pleasing melody and rhythms. Rich cello and violins await you in the 3rd movement. So much going on in the fourth movement, but it seems to be comfortingly resolved by strings underpinned and held together by incredibly long, flat bass notes which makes you want to listen to it again. You may even find yourself wondering if you really heard that layer from "The Electrician" (or was it wishful thinking?) in there at around 4:31 which remains hauntingly until the end. If you have a copy of "The Electrician" have a go at listening to it straight afterwards: Act 5 if you like. Not as Scott intended, but it sounds very good - comforting resolution, perhaps. As with listening to a piece of classical music, you don't need lyrical or visual guidance. But you do need to listen to it with an open mind and through a good set of headphones so that you don't miss any of the sounds.

This makes for very rewarding listening if you can afford the time it deserves; please play it several times before you pass judgement.

If you enjoy listening properly to music and you would like to explore a new piece of music which contains a good deal of genuine classical style and interest, as well as the odd and surprising reminders of older Scott works, then buy it!
