4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely summer dress, 6 July 2010
I bought this outfit to wear as a summer dress, and it looks wonderful on. Nice soft material with a bright design. There is a bit of stretch material and the size is quite accurate. It looks lovely with or without a petticoat.
Also the delivery was fast, arriving just 36 hours after I ordered.
I am very pleased with my purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars A miserable masterpiece, 2 Aug 2009
This review is from: All For This (MP3 Download)
As soon as Ben Moody left Evanscence in 2003, rumours that he was writing his own album quickly circulated. So fans waited patiently, and news trickled out from his website that tracks were coming together.
But it has taken six years for this album to finally surface.

It is a bit of a mixed bag.
The songs are well written and filled with emotion, but whenever a track comes around on my MP3 player I almost feel my heart sink.
I dread to think of Moody's mindset as he wrote because it is a very depressed album.

Don't get me wrong, 10.22 is an amazing track, and Nothing left of me is powerful listen. In fact the album has very few weak tracks.
Moody's voice is not strong, but his lyrics are and that carries you along. Tracks build up from simple electronic or piano intros to become full-bodied songs.

This is very different to Evanescence, but certainly a good addition to any CD collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is one great piece of kit, 11 April 2006
Now, I'm not an MP3 player expert, and I only bought this one on the advice of several friends who swear by it. And I'm so glad I did.
It's not that pricey when you consider how much Apple charge for a 40 gig player. The 24 hour battery life is a reality, not a gimmick. The software is easy to use, even for us computer illiterates!
Most importantly the metal shell is indestructable. The number of times Ive dropped it on a hard surface, and been terrified it's broken... Ive lost count. And most of the time it's still happily playing despite not being looked after!
I do have to carry a few paper clips with me in case it freezes and needs to be reset, but it is fairely rare, and when it does happen, you dont loose any tracks or anything. It just starts up again and works fine.
Many common problems like broken headphone sockets and scratched exterior just dont apply with this player. It's takes on large quantities of music, it plays for a long time without charging, its reliable, indestructable... Basically everything you could want from a player. One of the few players that does exactly what it says on the box.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest purchases I ever made!, 1 Dec 2004
This review is from: The Silent Force (Audio CD)
I bought Mother Earth (WT'S first album) 4 years ago, and I was blown away by it's orginality. The Musics mix of female vocals, with classical and rock worked so well. The albums subject of nature was slightly suspect, but it somehow just gelled together.
Four years on, and the band have resurfaced with this amazing new album. It's got all the good old aspects of Mother Earth, but it's a much more polished result, more relatable subject and developed lyrics. This band have grown so much and it shows.
The best song on the album is far and away their new single, Stand my ground. The lyrics of alot of these songs have been inspired by fantasy books, and with this song you can see why. The strength and visuals of the song blow you away, and combined with the video makes a perfect song.
Other good tracks are Jillian, memories and Forsaken, which all bring out the best in Sharon Den Adel's voice. I only have a few bones to pick, one, obviously, is the length between albums, but that was clearly worth it! Second is the fact some of the songs are remarkably simular in their compilation and sound. Its a shame there couldn't be some more different songs on there. And the last is that the song 'Running up that hill' (which was released between albums) never made it to this album, neither did the b-side of Mother earth (Jane Doe) or the b-side to stand my ground (Overcome), all of which are amazing songs. But I love what did come out.
You can't go wrong buying this album. Already this band are up there with After forever and Nightwish as some of the greatest rock bands on the continent at present, such a shame that this country can't see the genius.
If you are into female fronted rock, this is one of the best albums ive come across, and I've got alot. They do have simularities to Evanescence, but this is more rock based that piano based. They're less operatic than Nightwish, and less complicated than After forever, and smoother than Lacuna coil. I see it as a perfect fusion, and I can't wait for them to come back to the UK for another live gig, cos they're beyond amazing live!

4.0 out of 5 stars This is amazing!, 2 Feb 2004
This review is from: Comalies (Audio CD)
For all you Evanescence fans out there looking for something to listen to, this, is it. This is LC's best album, and the songs are catchy and just proper rock. Trust me, buy it!
It looses one star though because no-one can compare to Amy Lee's voice!

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm going to try and save you some money..., 26 Nov 2003
This review is from: Fallen (Audio CD)
For all you Evanesescence fans out there, you all know how amazing Fallen is. It's complete, filled with emotion, great lyrics and wonderful guitars riffs. So the prospect of getting your hands on an album with an extra track will appeal.
However, this extra track is in fact 'Farther away'. In my opinion this song is one of the best they've penned (and is even better live, i promise you). But paying nearing £30 for a track is a bit steep. If you want the extra song, go and buy the single of 'Bring me to Life', which actually has 'Farther away', as it's b-side. That way you only spend £4, instead of £30!

5.0 out of 5 stars I cannot rate this song more highly!, 22 Nov 2003
This review is from: My Immortal [CD 1] (Audio CD)
Well, what a turn around. I must confess that despite the strong emotion of this song, this was my least favourite song on the album ('Fallen'). The song was originaly written when the Amy Lee and Ben were only 15, and appeared in the same album format on their first full length album, 'Origin'. Their song writing skills have grown in the 4 years since then, and you can hear that in way they've re-worked this song.
The vocals are more interesting, and the bringing in Evanscence's more conventional rock style in the middle of the song gives it more feeling, whereas before, it was all a bit too chilled.
So go out and buy this single, even if you have the album. In fact, especially if you have the album. This is a much better version of the song, and you won't be dissapointed. But what I want to know is whats on the b-side?

4.0 out of 5 stars Mediorcre, by OLP's standards, 7 Oct 2003
This album is great. A good listen for all the OLP fans out there, with some catchy tracks. but don't expect a unique album. Where 'Gravity' and 'Spiritual machines' are well produced, and 'Clumsy' makes up for the lack production with amazing tracks, this album seems to of been over produced. (And Naveed is just terrible, all by itself!) 'HINAFUCC' tries to be unique, but instead falls into the mainstream. The tunes are mediocre, with a few jems, which are well hidden (noteably 'Thief' (which is amazing live!))

4.0 out of 5 stars It's an odd album, i'll give it that!, 7 Oct 2003
This review is from: Spiritual Machines (Audio CD)
Out of OLP's 5 albums this has to be the strangest. The songs themselves are alright, but not up to the bands usual, amazingly high standard. And whats with the unusual words of wisdom from Raina in between the tracks (nothing like listening to this album at night, and get really freaked out by a strange voice in your room!)?
I'm not saying the songs themselves arent good- they are, though not as good as 'Clumsy' and 'Gravity'. And if this album had been released before 'The matrix', some of speech moments could have seemed profound and imporatnt. Instead, it just seems like they are jumping on band wagon to sell more albums. Which they really don't need to do- their music alone is enough to sell thousands of albums!
So, a must for any OLP fan, but don't be too surprised by some odd moments.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best from 3EB so far..., 7 Oct 2003
This review is from: Out Of The Vein (Audio CD)
I'll keep this short and sweet, but out of 3EB's three albums, this is easily the best, and the easiest to just listen to. Their first, self-named album was too simple, and you couldn't help but keep coming bacn to 'Semi-charmed life' (which i now hate with a passion!).
This album is a much more developed sound, and holds together well. You can tell the bands developed and really jelled over the time they've been together, and this is the result. Catchy tunes, which are easily above the average of music today. And they only become better with a second listen!
Out of the three albums, this is the one to get!
