This review is from: The Beast (MP3 Download)
Fabulous EP by this Aussie band, every track a cracker. I can't recommend highly but you also need to buy the rest of their stuff as well, you will not be disappointed. It's about time they released all the EP's on a full length cd.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, 3 April 2015
This review is from: Grace For Drowning (Audio CD)
I really wanted to like this album given Steven Wilson's pedigree and quality of production etc, but I'm afraid it just didn't cut it for me and to be honest was downright boring as a whole. There are some nice pieces intermingled in some of the tracks, but it was still boring. A 1 cd version may have been more palatable but seems a silly to spread over 2 mid length discs. Maybe it's just down to personal taste.

Superb book and a great insight into the horrific days and nights that troops who served under Lt. Brown had to suffer. My own grandfather was in the 2nd Btn Gordon Highlanders and was in the trenches from October 1914 until posted to Italy in November 1917. How did he survive? Well, I guess I'll never know, but this book certainly does give a graphic reminder of those dark but not forgotten days and the men that had to suffer them in a series of reproduced letters between 1915 and 1918.
Highly recommended is the deluxe edition which is available from the website at www.allwellyet.co.uk

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Music, Poor Packaging & a Lack of Detail, 2 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Essential Too (Audio CD)
Musically, a great compilation of typically classic songs and tunes performed impeccably by Dougie and, well, that's the issue! The booklet, if you can call it that, is simply a 2 page list of the tracks and the album plus date of release. The track listing is already on the back of the cd. There is absolutely no information whatsoever about which instruments Dougie plays or who accompanied him on each track. No details of producer and more importantly whether all of the tracks have been remastered.
This is fundamental information especially if you already own the original cd's. Why buy such a compilation unless the tracks have been remastered?
If you don't have any Dougie Maclean cd's, then this is great place to start but at full price of around £15 you may of course choose to take the option of downloading.
For such a prolific, gifted and fantastic musician it is indeed disappointing not tho have a comprehensive booklet detailing person ell on each tract etc but also to include inspiration as to how the track was written and why.
All his followers, including me, would have been delighted to find out this information.
5 * for the musical content
1* for the packaging, lack of information and for not detailing whether remastered or not.

Great cd and check out Loosegoats as well. Long Distance Runner is a classic track and all the others do not disappoint either. Highly recommended.

Brilliant live album from Iona and one not to be missed. Shame you can't buy the cd and the DVD/ Bluray as one package but worth getting both.

If you've never heard of Christian Kjellvender, this cd is a goo place to start but you will end up being intrigued about his other releases that you will end up buying them all! I certainly did! Fantastic cd, highly recommended - stand out tracks fir me are Homeward Rolling Soldier, Allejujah, Log 25 and Deliverance but play it through in its entirety before making a judgement.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing - Listen before purchase!, 28 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This latest offering is quite frankly disappointing. On the 2 cd version, disc 1 is 34 minutes & disc 2 is 26, so why not have 1 disc of an hour long? Or perhaps it is to encourage sales of the 2 cd version. Either was, disc 1 does not provide a listenable track until track 8 "Silver Katherine", which is in the Jurado style. "Silver Joy" is acceptable but the rest for me at least are drab and dare I say it boring. The second cd is mainly acoustic with female backing and slightly more listenable, but no information or track listing. A poor package.
If you are expecting this something along the lines of the excellent cd's "Caught In Trees", "And Now That I'm In Your Shadow" "Saint Bartlett" or " Where Shall I Take You?", then I suggest you check them out via other sources before buying, which is sadly what I failed to do!
I really tried with this album and I would say that the bonus disc is far superior than the main disc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great set - crap packaging of discs, 8 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tracks (Audio CD)
Completely agree with other recent reviewers that it's an excellent set but the packaging of the discs is completely crap and Sony should be held responsible for this oversight. The original set although being 11" was a splendid and neat package, the new one is nearly 8" and inferior. Perhaps Sony are economising? The CD's sure do scratch at every extraction, will Sony replace? I doubt it. I also surmise that the rerelease is another opportunity to extract some more hard earned cash from Springsteen fans.
However although boasting that the CD's are HDCD, there is no 2013 additional information and you do wonder whether he sound quality is actually any better than the original 1998 edition.
Musically however, it's a great set but think twice about buying it again if you already have the 1998 edition.
