Schumann/Bruch/Block: Cello Works
Schumann/Bruch/Block: Cello Works
Price: £6.70

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite Perfection, 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sound of the cello goes straight to the soul bypassing brain and body. This is sublime playing of the highest calibre. An album to treasure, to re-play and then to turn to when all around is stressful and fraught. The Bruch piece is a particular gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prefab Sprout produce a classic, 31 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crimson/Red (Audio CD)
This album is astoundingly good. Even although it is effectively a solo album of Paddy McAloon having played all of the instruments on it, the sound is so rich and complex you would imagine a full band produced this. The intricate layers of guitars and swirling synth and briliant rhythms constantly startle and amaze. Paddy's voice is unchanged from his heyday and sounds extremely youthful. This is from a man who looks like he stepped out of ZZ Top and has a detached retina and constant deafening tinnitus. It is Paddy's 9th Symphony for sure. So many classic tracks, such brilliant lyrics, startling chord changes but rousing choruses. This CD will not leave my turntable for months. A work of genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a deodorant that ticks eco boxes and smells great, 31 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although pricey, this product ticks all of the eco boxes (organic ingredients, no aluminium, no parabens) but smells great and lasts all day with no whiffs. Well worth the money. Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aqua Brushes have transformed my painting life, 31 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These brushes are a revelation. no more spilt water or washing of brushes. Just out pops the paper, out pops the paint pads and off you go. My productivity has increased 10 fold since purchasing these brushes. They are also great for travelling. Pop them in your rucksack and paint watercolours en plein anywhere without fuss or without attracting attention. Brilliant invention.

These brushes are a revelation. I have used nothing else since purchasing them. They are so versatile and remove the need to wash brushes, have a big jar for cleaning brushes. My productivity has increased 10 fold since purchasing them. Marvellous invention. And great for travelling. I used them extensively on holiday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz Rock defined, 27 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the most sublime music. The musicianship is quite unbelievable. Every player is playing at the top of their game. Cobham's drums, McLaughlin at his finest moment, Jan Hammer sublime solos, Rick Laird jaw dropping bass and Jerry Goodman defining jazz rock violin. Each album is flawless. The live bonus CD is a real treat. It is argued that Miles Davies ground breaking jazz rock fusion albums Bitches Brew and In a Silent Way was the birth of a new music. If that this was the birth then this is the teenage years of jazz rock fusion. Full of energy, bursting with creativity, complex time signatures, fiendish chord changes with elaborate lead lines interwoven. The speed of the playing is pure virtuoso. It must be interesting for these musicians to look back at the CD's on this compilation and think, I was at my finest. Pure channeled inspiration. A masterpiece. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome piece of design loveliness, 28 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reminds me of the thrill of buying your first piece of Apple gear. The packaging, the feel of the product. The design is worthy of an award. The sound is sublime. If only Reason accepted video, it would be the ultimate DAW in the world. This replaced my Pro Tools LE set up and my recordings sound infinitely better. Clever people those Propellerhead
