From The Vault: Live At The Tokyo Dome 1990 [DVD] [NTSC]

4.0 out of 5 stars A great comeback tour for the Stones., 9 Nov. 2015
First off, the loss of one review star is due to the clumsy mixing error on the CDs placing Keith in left channel and Ronnie in the right. This is not the case with the DVD which has the correct mix when watching the concert. The Hampton & Forum CDs in the Vault series don't have this error.

When Flashpoint was released in the early 90s it was an entertaining highlights CD of the Steel wheels tour with a couple of gems such as "Factory Girl" & "Little Red Rooster". Overall that CD was underwhelming and didn't reflect the renewed stamina of the band that a full concert demonstrated.

This Tokyo concert shows a tighter & polished Stones than ever before. No more drug fuelled extended jams, although Midnight Rambler & Gimme Shelter make a welcome return to the setlist. The tracks have a great mix of old and new and are a joy to listen to from start to finish. The supporting musicians fill out the overall sound quite nicely giving the Stones tour a new lease of life. The song arrangements are tighter with more energy.

It would great if the full Thanksgiving concert from the Voodoo Lounge tour could be released. The original dvd release was severely edited and did not do the setlist justice. The Vault series is a perfect opportunity to remaster and release that great concert as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Each disc is about 60 minutes each so its a good mix of sketches Unfortunately, 11 April 2015

Entertaining mix of SNL sketches featuring Will Ferrell over three dvds. Each disc is about 60 minutes each so its a good mix of sketches Unfortunately, Vol 3 has 3 sketches repeated from the two earlier discs in the set, otherwise the box set would've got 5 stars.

This review is from: Mirrorball -.. -Cd+Dvd- (Audio CD)
A great first official live CD release from Def Leppard. Well mixed and a great improvement in sound from the bonus live disc from the Vault Special Edition.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Two fantastic animated fantasy movies in one set. This set would've gotten 5 stars, but Coraline had some issues with 3D imaging which could be distracting at times. Overall, both movies were very entertaining in their own style and will bear multiple viewings down the track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teenage Dream is brilliant pop, 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my first Katy Perry CD, and it would have to be the one with about 5 hit singles. I hope the monster success of this album doesn't overwhelm the production of the third album. If Perry continues with her songwriting partners and album production she may keep the same fun vibe that makes Teenage Dream so popular.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Feelers return in style, 6 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Hope Nature Forgives (Audio CD)
This is a welcome return to the studio for the Feelers, and the wait has definitely been worth it. Although touring with a couple of new songs here and there over the last few years, its a full album release that the fans had been waiting for. The album is quite a bit rockier than their last album "One World" with the edgier sounds of "Can't Fix Me", "Didn't Want To Fall in Love" & the rocked up cover of Jesus Jones "Right Here, Right Now". Other songs have the familiar Feelers blend of emotive lyrics & rock. "Dasvidaniya" & "No Need To Worry" are sure to become the next anthem hits of the band even if they aren't released as singles. The band's reputation is forever cemented by their impressive live performances. If you want to check out a fresh 2011 release from a proven kiwi rock band, "Hope Nature Forgives" will definitely land on your repeat play list.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great bargain, but Amazon description incorrect, 19 April 2011
You already know the movies are gruesome, visceral, and utterly brilliant. To get this boxset for this low price is fantastic. The reason why this reviewer gives only 4 stars instead of 5 is because the details provided by Amazon are incorrect regarding the video specs.

First up, ALL three movies are Region 0, not Region 2. Next error is that only the third movie is in PAL format, the first two movies are in NTSC format. Its not huge error but the information is on the back of the boxset for all to see.

Jamie's 30-Minute Meals: A Revolutionary Approach to Cooking Good Food Fast
Jamie's 30-Minute Meals: A Revolutionary Approach to Cooking Good Food Fast
by Jamie Oliver
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £17.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-Have for Weekday Cooking, 18 Nov. 2010
A worthy successor to the sensational "Ministry of Food", Jamie has done it again. As a recent cooking convert from the "Ministry" book, I wondered how I could take my new found cooking confidence a step further. I was already trying random recipes from magazines or cooking shows, which helped build upon what Jamie had started.

This "30 Minute Meal" book is ideal for people who have given a good honest effort to the "Ministry" recipes and seen the results of their labours. You begin to know your way around the kitchen a lot better than before. Now, truth be told, you may go over 30 minutes cooking some of these recipes initially, but your skill at time-management will improve so you can pull off a 30 minute wonder down the track after a couple of attempts.

I won't get to see the accompanying TV series broadcast in New Zealand until sometime in 2011, but that won't stop me getting stuck into the book beforehand. It was the same with the "Ministry" book. I bought it before I saw the TV series because the recipes were worth cooking.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great asset to have in your xmas preperation, 16 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jamie's Christmas [DVD] (DVD)
Don't be put off by the naff cover, this 2 hour DVD delivers a spectacular turkey-dinner tuition that will deliver results in an efficient manner.

Although other Christmas cooking DVDs may have multiple episodes that have a myriad of alternative ideas for the festive season, this special will get you cooking a straight forward & delicious meal.

So here you have the turkey & roast veges, 4 steamed & buttered veges, and pudding. In the DVD extras you also have a smoked salmon starter, mince pies, creamed corn. The main meal itself is obviously the star, and savvy time management shows how it can be prepared on xmas eve & cooked on the big day itself, and still relax with loved ones.

Highly recommended and it stands up to repeat viewing due to Jamie's enthusiasm & personality. You can pick this DVD up wickedly cheap online in Amazon marketplace so there's no real excuse not to get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant TV series compiled, 12 Jun. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having only seen the first series through repeats, I was compelled to buy the complete boxset at such an incredibly reasonable price. The first two series were a great introduction to the residents of Roysten Vasey. The Christmas special was a great tribute to anthology horror films while retaining its own identity. The third tv series evolved into somethiing so bold it will grab your attention to see how everything fits together; and still, new characters are introduced throughout. The League have broken the expectation of creating a stagnant third comedy series. The upcoming movie will also spin off in a new direction for Roysten Vasy residents. Will there be a fourth tv series? If so, then its better not to have expectations on what it will look like...it'll be different, yet familiar, but most of all...it'll be local.
