3.0 out of 5 stars An empty box, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite how this product appeared online it didn't come with any dividers. It's just a box.


No Title Available

1.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy (and possibly dangerous), 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sadly this cable broke within six weeks of buying it. The seal on the section where the cable goes into the phone came apart within a week and after weeks of carefully using it and hoping not to be electrocuted if finally snapped when removing the plug from the phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant., 17 Feb. 2014
This review is from: Time of Dust (Audio CD)
He's done it again. It's had some great reviews too:

"Alluring." - The Independent ****

"Sensational." - The Sunday Times

"Time of Dust is bleaker than his past work, marrying a dark heart with epic hooks and choruses like a darker Elbow." - The Guardian ****

"Grand, cinematic flourishes" - The Daily Mail

"A thing of mournful, lachrymose majesty…" - EMusic, Album Chart #1

"This six-track mini-album is touched by darkness – it’s distorted, unsettling, untrustworthy almost, like a creepy character lurking in the shadows. But its nooks and crannies reveal weird and wonderful delights at every turn." - Clash

"A masterly lurch to the dark side by the multi-talented maestro" - Uncut

"Brooding, theatrical elegance with a glitchy twist… A dusky delight." - NME

"Ornate romantic balladry… curls around the listener like tendrils of smoke." - FT

"As warm and dark as the real ale he brews." The Times ****

"Part-time brewer of dark ales, full-time composer of dark tales." - Scottish Daily Express

"A gorgeous noirish set of cinematic songs with a bittersweet emotional core." - Telegraph

"Dark and haunting… the spectre of Jeff Buckley looming large. A great start to 2014." - Shortlist

A fascinating read from a man whose clearly ping-ponged across the divide of old and new media at the New York Times and been right in the bowels of the change that's to come.

I was particularly enlightened by his his historical look at how we've always been a future-fearing race, especially regarding the reluctance to accept that people wouldn't die if a train travelled over a certain speed.

A great companion to Jaron Lanier's You Are Not A Gadget: A Manifesto, Nicholas Carr's The Shallows: How the Internet is Changing the Way We Think, Read and Remember and Andrew Keen's The Cult of the Amateur: How blogs, MySpace, YouTube and the rest of today's user-generated media are killing our culture and economy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Disturbing, 5 April 2003
This review is from: My Elixir, My Poison (Audio CD)
This is my favourite record, this year, so far. It's the soundtrack to nightmares and takes snapshots from life from 2-20, scribbling on walls with crayons, blood... It's a gothic, post-rock, splatter board of Boards of Canada with sinister female diary reading vocals. It's what Massive Attack could have come back with and something like I'd hope Portishead would do if they could shut Beth Gibbons up a bit. There are elements of Godspeed, Mogwai, et al, and vast moments where the album totally distracts you. Absolutely beautiful, will shine through in the history books - in much the same way Velvet Underground have become known.
