Edge Hill and Fenny Compton (Explorer Maps) (OS Explorer Map)
Edge Hill and Fenny Compton (Explorer Maps) (OS Explorer Map)
by Ordnance Survey
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant map but not good value, 29 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These maps are fantastic, very detailed and extremely useful. But they are too expensive for what you're getting, particularly the paper version. The back of the map is blank. It could so easily have the next area along on there instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great idea well executed, and the music is tremendous too!, 24 Feb. 2005
First off i'm a huge Aesop fan, but i dont let that cloud my vision. The presentation of this product is amazing, good stylistic packaging and artwork throughout. If you are lucky enough to get the lyric book before they run out, then lucky you, you are in for a mind twisting adventure of deep meanings and cool lyrical combinations that spans his entire Def Jux career (minus "Appleseed" and "Music for Earthworms" and any other side project). If you're not so lucky then obviously you'd be more interested in the audio. Although I prefer the old grimier style of aesops stuff from the earlier days (pre "Bazooka Tooth"). But the new shiney production suits his style well and his all-conquering voice is finally being harnessed to smoothly flow over the beats rather than creating an ear-like fireworks display. I've learned to love Aesop in a new way, which is fantastic.
Overall this EP has a consistant high standard of music that wont dissappoint, 4 stars. With the pretty lyric book and sleeve 5 stars.
Personal Favs - Number Nine, Holy Smokes, Rickety Rackety.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the best compliment, 25 Jun. 2004
This review is from: The Cold Vein (Audio CD)
I bought this album alongside MF Doom's operation doomsday, and i listened to them both quicky through and at first i liked them both, on a par, maybe i liked doom a bit better. Then i listened to this properly, thought; hmm this is pretty damn good. Then again, thought; hey this album is wicked! Then again, said out loud; I LOVE THIS F*%$IN' ALBUM!!!! Now i can't stop listening! It is an inspiration, each track really does take you on a journey not on this plane of reality.
Buy this album, then really LISTEN, its the best advice i can give.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing at first, but after a few listens great, 25 Jun. 2004
This review is from: Bazooka Tooth (Audio CD)
This is a good album, although it lacks the classic Aesop vibe that i love so much. But there isnt a track on this album that I habitually skip, and I can get down to a good few. It is a great album, but not as good as the rest of his discography.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW, 22 Jun. 2003
This review is from: All 'n' All (Audio CD)
This is an amazing piece of musical history, unmatched by any other music for its time in production quality and overall funkyness, only topped by the wickedy wicked sleeve artwork. I'm basing this on the original vinyl release, i havent heard the CD but i'll bet its a winner. 6 billion out of 5. (a star for everyone who should listen to this) corny but TRUE!

5.0 out of 5 stars This stuff is the greatest!, 9 May 2003
If you like Aesop Rock and the rest of the Def Jux crew then your gonna love this. Think Aesop with funkier beats and understandable lyrics. Look out for tracks, 1,3,4,5,6,7,9,10,14,14,14,15 oh yeah and 2. Also get the next album too, God Loves Ugly, That stuff is the Greatest too!
