1.0 out of 5 stars Audio CDs fail to play easily (or at all) in a variety of good quality ..., 17 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Audio CDs fail to play easily (or at all) in a variety of good quality CD players. Have tried 2 different writers with a variety of speeds. Maybe it's a bad batch, or maybe it's a 'Sony' thing against audio CDs, but I won't be buying Sony CDRs again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a grower., 31 Dec 2013
This review is from: Tales of Us (Audio CD)
As usual with Goldfrapp it takes a while to wind its way into your head.
For me, 'Clay' makes it worth the price of admission alone.

3.0 out of 5 stars FUN, but not terribly FUNctional, 12 April 2013
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
To be honest it's not the best bottle opener money can buy.
But then again, that's not the point.
IT'S THE ENTERPRISE, INNIT?

1.0 out of 5 stars What? Again..!!, 8 Mar 2012
Let's be honest here. Sylvian's last decent solo studio release was "Dead Bees" - and that was an awfully long time ago.
Since then it's been a series of compilations (which I've bought for the remixes & b-sides) and some really tuneless plinky-plonky claptrap nonsense.
Well "time's up" Dave. No more. Nada. You've had all the money you're going to get from me until you make another new 'proper' album - with real 'tunes' I can follow, and with the sort of 'singing' that you do so well. You know, an album like the early GOOD ones. The ones I love. The ones that make me go all warm inside.
Now stop scratching your head and get your act together. Who knows, you might even start to enjoy yourself again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Non-anamorphic release!!, 11 Dec 2011
Comment only on the DVD only, which is NOT Anamorphic. This means having to blow a tiny proportion of the 4:3 image up into full widescreen which leaves a highly inferior picture.
(The film itself, of course, is stunning.)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not burnable!, 14 April 2011
Yes, this is the classis 1954 mono recording, mercifully 95% click-free but otherwise very UNmastered and so rather lacking in 'oomph' and volume.
However, the MP3 files have oddly resisted my every effort to burn to CD using Nero, iTunes and Windows Media Player so may not be fit for your purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Re-issue - worth buying?, 16 Mar 2011
Basically, yes (despite the continued presence of the unpleasant cacophonous mess of "...Water").
The bonus tracks are fine (esp "...Angels" which is very catchy, and "Queen..."), and Roland needs to know that we still love him.
You might want to keep the old booklet though, as it has the lyrics.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful non-anamorphic transfer, 28 Feb 2010
If you have a large-screen TV then FORGET this *awful* 4:3 non-anamorphic transfer. It shows up anamorphically on terrestrial TV now and again so you might as well wait and watch it that way. Good sound, but, with such a dire pixellated picture on large displays, what's the point?

5.0 out of 5 stars Tired of waiting for the next "Blue Nile" album?, 7 May 2009
This review is from: Song (Audio CD)
You could do no better than to add this wonderful (and one-off) CD to your collection.
Only now re-released after it unfairly sank without trace in 1990 - this timeless 'classic that never was' has the chance for a long overdue re-appraisal.

The "Blue Nile" connection is both in musical style, and producer Calum Malcolm.
Personal standouts include opener 'New Brighton', 'Endless Holiday', 'Ordinary Day', 'Heaven Knows', 'Homecoming', 'Summer Winds', 'Your Voice'... why go further - the whole lot in fact (even the bonus tracks).

Thank you, Cherry Red Records.
