The Both

5.0 out of 5 stars A welldone Album, 26 Aug 2014
This review is from: The Both (Audio CD)
A well produced and well preformed CD. Aimee Mann and Ted Leo are the perfect paring. The songs are as melodic as you have come expect and harmonies are wonderful. If you like adult rock/pop/country then this is the album for you

5.0 out of 5 stars Shelby Lynn is never short of fantastic, 26 Aug 2014
This review is from: Thanks (Dig) (Audio CD)
This is a fab EP and I would highly recommend it a great showcase to the talent that is Shelby Lynn. Even on an off-day Shelby Lynn is nothing less than entertaining. This collection is for the real music lover and not just the hardcore Shelby Lynn fan. Great, great stuff.

A professional and workman like CD from the The Rails. Enjoyable and entertaining. The Rails could have a great future if they keep producing material like this. If I had one critism it is that there is not quite enough wow factor to ensure a wider audience than hardcore fans. There is enought here though to get attract enough people to become hardcore fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great album from a professional and polished performer, 26 Aug 2014
This review is from: Mutineers (Audio CD)
This album has David Gray on top form. I am tempted to say it is his best album for years, but with David Gray that is difficult to say because he has consistently produced high qulaity and entertaining material. But this is something special and with the two disk live ablum it becomes a very special product. Unless you do not like Grey, in which case why would you consider even buying it, then I promise that you will not be disapointed.

This review is from: Levelling The Land (Audio CD)
This is a great package and one not just for Levellers fans. However, I was a bit surprised to note that it does a rather dated sound but nonetheless an important album and one that have never been bettered. You can see how this band influenced a whole generation of new folk/rockers.

Wonderbag Portable Slow Cooker with Recipe Book Navy/Denim
Wonderbag Portable Slow Cooker with Recipe Book Navy/Denim
Price: £59.99

3.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 19 May 2014

It is a bag for keeping things hot or very cool for a long period. The way that it works is that you essentially bring your meal to a very hot temperature and then put it in the bag and it will continue cooking because the retained heat continues the cooking process. You need to use a cooking pot like a creuset to get the best because the heavy metal pot also retains heat.

The bag itself is not innovative or particularly new. The principle is simple and effective -- as long as YOU follow the principles. The design of the bag is excellent and it is a great way to transport hot food. It is also very good as a slow cooker, but you do need to get that food really hot before popping it into the bag.

It is good if you are looking at cutting your energy bill as most stews etc need you to bring to the boil before reducing heat. But at £60 a pop it would take quite a while before you recovered your outlay through energy savings.

Buy this if either you will use it as a practical tool or if you have too much money and not enough sense. If you are strapped for cash and looking for something that will reduce your bills then there are cheaper alternatives such as a basic slow cooker.

Thoroughly fabulous recording of a power piece of music. Recommended for the novice and the die hard alike. An excellent present for the classical music fan that would be a real treat.


Ultimate Comics Spider-Man Vol.2: Scorpion
Ultimate Comics Spider-Man Vol.2: Scorpion
by Brian Michael Bendis
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.69

4.0 out of 5 stars A Spider-Man for the 21st Century, 25 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The creation of a new Spider-Man a replacement for Peter Parker produced newspaper headlines and the outpouring of disgruntled 45 year-old teenage bloggers. In fact this was not a replacement for the Peter Parker (that would come later) but a new Spider-Man in Marvel's alternative Ultimate Universe.

Miles Morales is the Peter Parker that Stan Lee and Steve Ditko might have created if the Marvel Universe had been produced in the 2010s instead of the 1960s.

These stories are comics. They are not high art or great literature but they are nicely produced and the ensemble Morales cast have been well designed and written. Miles Morales is a charming Spider-Man and one that is well worth investing the time and money in following. These stories will stand the test of time. It is a proper development for the fifty-year old Spider-Man fanchise


The Savage Sword of Conan Volume 9
The Savage Sword of Conan Volume 9
by Michael Fleisher
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.78

4.0 out of 5 stars It Conan, you know what to expect, 29 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These reprint volumes are excellent value for money, especially as the source material was also in black and white. While this volume does not contain the best of Conan, some of the writing is very ropey, it does contain some very nice art from the reliable John Buscema and a bevy of underrated Filipino artists. At the time these stories originally saw print there were a number of great international artists working on books like Conan or House of Mystery for DC. They were a great talent largely unrecognised by today's panelogolists.
