Monument: Remastered Definitive Edition
Monument: Remastered Definitive Edition
Price: £6.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Missed opportunity, 24 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes there's more tracks than on the original LP but why not just release a full length concert? The opening track Monument is a mediocre studio instrumental, probably a B side in its day, really a filler. The final track "We Go" is from a different concert. I saw Ultravox back in the day live and they did an excellent gig. What's here is good but a missed opportunity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 5 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
New material on Ghosts patchy and Disappointing. Nothing really memorable here. Redone hits largely ok but early songs haven't got the excitement and bite of the originals. That slight snarl and sneer in Debbie's voice in the original Rip her to Shreds or Hanging on the Telephone has gone.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Yello - what else to say?, 30 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Pocket Universe (Audio CD)
Excellent stuff as usual from Yello. If you like other Yello cds, you will like this. If you haven't heard any then this is as good a place to start as any. The fun side of electronica. What I love about Yello is that they do not seem to take themselves too seriously. They do their own thing, always slightly quirky, always with a sense of fun. This is perhaps slightly more relaxed and atmospheric than some of their output.

I was a bit apprehensive about getting this as a fan of the first two Ultravox line-ups but it is much better than I was expecting particularly the second disc which sounded close to the Midge Ure line up. Vocals and lyrics bit weaker. First disc though is a bit patchy with no coherent sound or theme.

Hope Sandoval's vocal style remains the same - dreamy, half spoken, ethereal. Guitars are slightly less to the fore than with Mazzy Star and the variety of instrumentation and sound is wider but otherwise fairly similar, hence if you like Mazzy Star you will probably like this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly disappointing, 21 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Other reviews described this as Geldof's best solo album so I was expecting something better. It's better than the last effort and his first solo album, but my favourite remains the Vegetarians of Love. This is a bit of a mixed bag - there are good tracks, but I found it rather inconsistent.

This review is from: White Eagle (Audio CD)
If you have heard other TD discs from the mid 70's to 80's then nothing will surprise you here. It's good solid piece of work though standard TD.

This review is from: The Plateaux of Mirror (Audio CD)
Probably my favourite of Eno's ambient albums. Less abstract and dreamy than some of the others, bit more focus, more sequences recognisable as tunes rather than the random blippy bloppyness of, say, Thursday Afternoon.
