4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 15 Oct. 2013

Just right for when you need a tight, smooth grip that won't damage your item.
Such as chainsaw sharpening, pipe bending, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 4 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first nail brush in YEARS that actually gets my hands and nails looking presentable after a day's work. I work on a farm, so they get pretty grubby! Some serious scrubbing goes on when I get home.
My only complaint (and it's only a little one) is that the bristles, though remaining good and firm, are getting bent quicker than I'd hope. However, at this price, it'll easily last long enough to be money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure rock 'n' roll, 28 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live At River Plate (Audio CD)
This has to be one of the greatest live albums ever. Anyone who has had the pleasure of seeing this band live will already know that you're in for a treat when you listen to this.
As others have said, the vinyl version is a bit of a let-down, but be assured, there are no such issues with the cd.

We are served up with a huge chunk of their classic favourites and a few from their most recent studio album. The mastery of Angus Young's playing shows no sign of waning, and you can tell from dear old Brian Johnson's voice that he still loves a good growl at maximum volume.

Get in the car, plan a route of at least 100 miles and go and have the time of your life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 28 Nov. 2012

This gadget is a must have, particularly if you are one of the many people who find their Blackberry runs out of battery a couple of hours after switching it on..!
It means I can be out all day, with the assurance that it always has enough charge to carry out all I need to do.
Superb price and quick delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars ZINGY!!, 9 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The little figure from the tv ads is a big hit in our house, so to find a t shirt with him/her/it on the front was really exciting. Our toddler is thrilled to see Zingy all the time now. Really quick dispatch, by the way. Ordered late Thursday night and it arrived on Saturday morning!

2.0 out of 5 stars Far from classic Queen, 12 May 2012
Being a Queen fan does not automatically make me want to find excuses to award this 5 stars, as it has some others. Make no mistake- this was their worst album by a distance. It nearly killed off the band, and left the vast majority of fans hugely disappointed. There are three good songs on here, the rest are awful filler. Not good enough. Disco and funk are for others to produce, and thankfully Queen soon realised this. The accompanying tour was surprisingly good fun, particularly when they uncorked their vintage material...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes, it's good to laugh, 12 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So much has been written about The Barron Knights already over the years (wasn't it the 1950s when they started?) that all I can do is recommend this as a fabulous introduction to what they do. There are numerous albums still available- if you have a particular favourite year in music or genre, they will probably have had their say- so check them out too!

3.0 out of 5 stars What happened?, 12 May 2012
This review is from: No Prayer For The Dying (Audio CD)
The great tragedy with this Maiden album is that it is let down by the production. The sound is poor, completely unlike all that came before it and much of their output since.
There are some brilliant tracks on here, displaying some quite creative writing with a good slice of humour in places. The sound could be a lot better, but I'd urge all true Maiden fans to give it a blast, or seek out a remaster.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, 11 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After much searching, we at last found a clear worktop board, that is scratch and heat resistant- many of them are not, so check before you buy. It cleans easily, and does what it was meant to do.
One small niggle- none of the glass boards we've owned over the years has kept the little silicone feet to stop it sliding about. Invariably, we end up supergluing them back on. They always stay after that, so I've no idea what they use to attach them in the first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Okay, who took all the pills from the bottle marked 'Awesome'?, 11 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Onward [Ltd] (Audio CD)
Wow! Given that this band has been recording across six different decades, they could be forgiven if they sounded a bit tired with this latest offering. But they have blasted back to their best with this album. It has been years since I last listened to a new album from any band and came away feeling exhilarated.
There are echoes of past glories on here, so if Electric Tepee, Xenon Codex and others floated your boat, this will do the same and then some.
Each track has so much going on it'll take a few listens to take it all in. Richard Chadwick's drumming has always been a driving force, but on this album, it's as if Captain Brock has allowed free rein to do a bit of pounding in a Moon/Bonham way.
The whole piece is energised in such an exuberant way, a lot of younger, apparently more commercially successful bands could learn much from it, instead of churning out the same autopop year after year.
Hawkwind have always stuck to their guns, doing things their way. On this evidence, their 27th studio album, they'll be showing us how it's done for a long time yet.
