1.0 out of 5 stars A compilation of compilation DVDs - Not A Proper TV series boxset, 28 Dec. 2014
This is a review of the product not the show. The show is 5 stars as it is brilliant and completely adored by my 6 year old daughter.

This is not a season box set in the traditional sense of the phrase but merely a compilation of compilation DVDs that just happen to cover every episode in Season 1, just in a random order. So basically done on the cheap, packaged up and sold to the public without mentioning this anywhere on the cover.

While like many shows it does not have a continuous narrative there is still an underlying story arc so not having them run in sequence makes the release of this box set, like the episodes themselves, out of order. I hope they don't make the same mistake with future series where the running order is of much greater importance to the overall story.

Disappointing and my 6 year old is gutted that she can't just select 'Play all' and sit back and enjoy the series properly.

1.0 out of 5 stars A bad Pantera pub tribute act, 2 Aug. 2014
This review is from: EVE OF DESTRUCTION (Audio CD)
A poor effort in terms of originality but a great effort in taking itself too serious (check the track Addiction, a ridiculous song that thinks it's a Grammy winning effort) and being nothing more than a tribute act. While most of the album is a poor man's Pantera, at best (including a near laughable Phil Anselmo impersonation), there are also nods to other bands, the worst effort being an attempt to be Hatebreed and unsurprisingly not being a patch on the class of those they are blatantly attempting to copy.

As Hostile (even the name is a Pantera reference highlighting the complete lack of imagination this band suffers from) were supporting Machine Head on their recent UK club tour I checked out this album before the gig. I'm glad I did as it meant I could leave the house later and not waste my time watching them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait, 28 April 2014
This review is from: Embrace (Audio CD)
It's been a very well documented 8 years from their last release until this one, did they make the wait worthwhile?

Stupid question really - the new self titled album is a triumph of the highest order with the vast majority of the album simply stunning.

The first 5 tracks are worth 4 stars on their own. Opener Protection is a broody classic already, and used by the band to open their warm up tour dates a couple of months ago. In The End has more than a nod and a wink at New Order but with classic euphoric sing along choruses - the Embrace trademark. The singles that most folk know, Refugees and Follow You Home (both great, both a wee bit different to what you expect from Embrace in very different ways), are separated by I Run which for me is the stand out track on the album. A heart breaking ballad that grows and grows, pulling at the heart strings while implanting an ear worm to ensure it haunts you and delights you in equal measures. It is up there already with the best songs Embrace have ever produced and is actually worth the money for the album on it's own.

For me Quarters is the only misstep on the album but only because of the vocal style of the chorus which is far too Bee Gees for my taste but the rest of the song is solid enough. At Once gets us back into true Embrace territory with a strong ballad with sing out loud chorus - the Embrace trademark and something they do better than anyone else. Self Attack Mechanism sees a harder faster edge while The Devil Looks After His Own is another strong typical Embrace song that would stand out on other albums but only suffers slightly here due to the esteemed company it is keeping.

A Thief On My Island is a stunning finale which in turn makes it a fitting one too. A moody, pulsating beast that growls and grows until we get to a crushing crescendo to bring and end to the proceedings. As suitable closing to the album as Protection is an opening.

If you are unfamiliar with Embrace (?!) then this is as good a place to start as it is easily up there with their best work, if not actually their best (some statement given just how great debut The Good Will Out is). If you like Embrace this will reignite your feelings for their music. If you love Embrace, simply celebrate that they are back. And boy, are they back and then some!

2.0 out of 5 stars Design is fine, t-shirt itself is not, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First to explain. I am usually an XL due to my height but buy XXL to safeguard against almost inevitable shrinkage after the first wash. This tactic has served me well over the years. With this in mind I bought the XXL of this t-shirt. The design is exactly as shown and absolutely fine, however the t-shirt is very small, in fact it's even a bit small for an XL let alone an XXL. It's not a huge problem just now, granted it's a bit tight at the neck and too short (just goes to my waist) but I fear that when I wash it it will shrink to a M and be a wear once item. At least I paid less than a fiver, would have been really unhappy if I had paid £15.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Deicide Album For Years, 26 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In The Minds Of Evil (Audio CD)
Is it lazy to use the phrase 'return to form'? That is exactly what this is. If you like Deicide then this is a must buy, but it's a cracking album for anyone with a leaning towards death metal.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible version not suitable for small children, 19 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Downloaded this thinking it would be a great bedtime read for my 4 year old. How wrong I was. Very pretentious and full of self importance with an impressive vocabulary which means it was confusing for a young child. Quite a dark version of the story too with all the emphasis on the detailed bullying of the 'duckling' but a bit much for my youngster when the bird decides euthanasia is the best option out until the big reveal. Better much more child friendly versions of this classic tale are out there.

1.0 out of 5 stars Scam - Only 1 Packet, not box of 36., 15 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Order from Game Trader and received only 1 packet, not a box, and not even from the series pictured. Rip off merchants. Do not be duped by this con.
