3.0 out of 5 stars Let's go Disco!, 18 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Let It Happen (MP3 Download)
After 3/4 listens, this track is a grower. Not like anything from Innerspeaker or Lonerism, hoping Kevin Parker is not going to Daftpunk, & the consolation is its alot better than 'Cause I'm A man!

This review is from: 'Cause I'm A Man (MP3 Download)
This is the worst track ever by Tame Impala.
Kevin Parker doesn't do himself justice with this & I'm hoping this is the only track on the forthcoming album that I will skip!

4.0 out of 5 stars Saturns Pattern, 18 May 2015
This review is from: Saturns Pattern (Audio CD)
Having had the benefit of getting this album 3 days before its release date, I've listened to it 5 times, it's certainly a grower of an album. Been a Weller fan for such a long time (long time), sorry couldn't resist an album track pun, he's always going to get the benefit from myself, if I'm honest, because I want to like it!
White Sky & Long time are what I would expect from his lordship, but really enjoy his 6 minutes plus tracks, Pick it up & These streets(8:26) & also Phoenix which is 4 seconds shy of the 6 minutes.
Don't need to convince a fan of his to buy, as I'm sure it was pre ordered when the album was announced, I'm certain it will be nominated for a mercury album of the year, not sure it would win to be honest, but it is a very good album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon on fire stick., 17 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fire TV Stick (Electronics)
Only had it less than 24 hrs & very happy with it. Very easy to install and after watching someone on youtube installing it, thought it took him alot long than it took myself! If you're buying it for yourself, it's already got your account details in it,it's a piece of cake. Your photo's from your amazon cloud + the music you have purchased from amazon that goes on to your amazon player is also on there. Downloading apps is the same as your mobile phone,just click and you're done. Not got the Google chromecast so can't compare the 2, but I'm delighted with this so far! Watching Netflix on it is better than virgin tivo!


Mink Mussel Manticore

4.0 out of 5 stars The Birth of Pond Impala., 14 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nick Allbrook on vocals, Shiny Joe Ryan on guitar, Steve Summerlin on bass, Richard Ingham on synths and Kevin Parker on drums.

In 2007 saw Mink Mussel Creek play over 100 shows, in 2008 where they started to lay down some of these tracks, the songs were withheld from the band. Vain attempts were made to secure the recordings with only the live tracks recorded to tape being recovered some time in 2009.

The damage was done. The turmoil this situation created along with divergent career paths and stagnation spelled an indefinite end to Mink Mussel Creek some time in 2008-9. In the process, Pond was born, Tame Impala began to be in hot demand around the world!

Over the course of two weeks in January 2011 the band set up in the Norfolk Basement Fremantle and re-recorded every single note of that album entirely on their own – Mink Mussel Manticore was 7 tracks & launched over two sold out nights at Norfolk to welcoming ears and eyes.

Now released on download or expensive vinyl if you can get it, this is an excellent album. If you are a fan of Tame Impala & Pond, you will love this & well worth £7.89 , love to get my hands on the vinyl but the download will do, not 1 filler, 'They Dated Steadily' is an early sounding Pond track, but what else would expect,'Meeting Waterboy' is easy going for 3 minutes then busts in to life.Then slows down for the final minute.Followed by my favourite track 'Cat Love Power' which is then followed by the porno sounding 'Promising Quintet Rise To Power'.

'Makeout Party Girls','Hands off The Mannequin,Charlie' & 'Doesn't the moon look good tonight' finish the album off . A cracking album, which i listened to on repeat 3 times straight after download.

5.0 out of 5 stars super sonic bluray, 7 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you watched the series on BBC & you are a fan, you don't need to be told how good this series was!
If you didn't, I think this is a must for any serious lover of music. A good look in to the musical history of these American Cities.
The bluray is 3 discs,has 4 episodes on discs 1& 2 and on disc 3 they have extended interviews with all the musicians involved then an indepth look at the recordings of each song.
Absolutely brilliant 9 hrs of entertainment in glorious HD & dolby digital 5.1 surround / PCM 2.0 Stereo! Sit back, turn up the volume, very deserving of 5 *****!

1.0 out of 5 stars DON'T BUY.. AVOID., 16 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As soon as I took the shrink wrap off this I regretted buying! I gave out a large DOH! when I realised what a waste of money this is! THIS SET IS NOT SANCTIONED BY THE ARTISTS written on the box. 174 minutes worth on it aswell. No music by the FOO'S is to be heard on this.It's one of them dvds that will be soon shown on sky arts. Star rating is required amazon said so the 1 I've given it, knock it off because it deserves no stars, says it all, awful, why oh why did I waste my money, wish I had waited to see someone review it.

5.0 out of 5 stars X-men are great, 29 Jun. 2014

Best series of superhero films under The Dark Knight trilogy. Each one is as equally brilliant as the next and since there are so many X-men films, they are very consistent. Looks great on Blu Ray and worth the £15 I payed for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't know which one is the best., 29 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Two brilliant films.
I'm not a Star Trek fan, never even watched any of the previous TV seasons or films, but these films are amazing. Could watch them both again and again. Anyone should enjoy them.
Can't believe this was only £10 on Blu Ray. A must buy.
