5.0 out of 5 stars Two types of Beck, 2 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Morning Phase (Audio CD)
There's two types of Beck - both equally brilliant in their own way. There's dancefloor Beck of Odelay and Midnite Vultures etc.
And there's sublime Beck, see SeaChange. Sometimes he fuses the two, but this is definitely sublime Beck.
Sad, wistful and dripping in golden sunshine. Beautiful stuff.
Any fans of 70s Neil Young should hear this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, 1 Mar 2014

This review is from: Immunity (Audio CD)
By far my favourite album of 2013. Woozy, burpy, fizzy and beautiful. A multi layered treat for fans of electronica.

Title might be a very slight red herring but this one of Catrin's loveliest records to date. Very beautiful indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pause. Read. Live., 1 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One Minute Meditation (Paperback)
I have been using this book as the starting point for my daily meditation practice for over a month. If you want to be helped on the road to self discovery then this is a great aid - it is both warm & generous and stark & challenging in equal measure. Keep working with it every day and more and more of who you truly are will be revealed to you day by day- well, that's my experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars The difficult second album, 3 Oct 2013
In and out of the kitchen may on the surface be a spoof on Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diaries but beyond this contains some of the richest and most beautifully judged writing and performing on radio. This second series gives the other characters more depth and has a kind of Heimat like structure. Wonderful stuff, keep it coming Miles.

I can't claim to understand this album but it sounds like nothing else I've heard. Hugely rewarding repeat listening. Recomended

5.0 out of 5 stars Irritable owl syndrome, 24 Aug 2013
This review is from: Count Arthur Strong [DVD] (DVD)
Sounds pretentious but this series is like chekhov's cherry orchard and uncle vanya - very funny and often deeply sad. Quite wonderful and in my opinion one of the finest things Linehan has done yet.

Quite enjoyable mix but not quite the celebration of House certain reviews in the press had made it out to be.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't quite add up, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The new Royksopp tracks are very good and some of the tracks selected are inspired choices particularly the Acker Bilk, Vangelis and Popol Vuh. My main issue with it was that it doesn't really add up to a complete late night listening experience and doesn't have much shape, goes in too many different directions. One track will establish a certain mood and the next will contradict it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is dance music, 1 Aug 2013

This review is from: Jiaolong (MP3 Download)
Always have high expectations of what Dan Snaith does but this exceeded them. All of these tunes have lodged in my head. Different and addictive.
