5.0 out of 5 stars Another superb CD by Burial, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Truant / Rough Sleeper (Audio CD)
I have now purchased all 4 available Burial CDs from Amazon and they are on permanent rotation in my home and car! Very soothing and ambient but with an undercurrent of strong rhythm and the exceptionally inventive use of vocals - often as an instrument to augment the innovative sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb pan!, 24 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After watching the recent Jamie Oliver series on TV my wife decided that she simply had to have one of these oven-safe pans - and is totally impressed with the weight and quality of the product. Thoroughly recommended. In fact we now possess two of these in different sizes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Successful Amazon recommendation, 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had not heard of Burial before I listened to the CD extracts following an Amazon recommendation (based on my other many and varied musical purchases). It is a quite superb CD and has a rather unique ambient feel at times interspersed with strong hypnotic rhythms and soulful lyrical input where the voice tends to be used rather more like an additional instrument. After buying this I now own all four CDs currently available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality pan, 29 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife has watched Jamie Oliver making omelette's on the TV using this oven proof pan time and again and has been thoroughly impressed with the purchase. Although I was doubtful at first the very solid and robust design matched to the ability to place it straight in the oven has actually resulted in a much lighter texture omelette - and as someone who enjoys his wife's cooking I must confess I have been impressed!

5.0 out of 5 stars What price nostalgia?, 17 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am 55 and have been buying music since 1970. I recently parted with my 25 year old "separates" system (tape deck, CD player, amp, turntable and speakers) as too bulky and outdated. I have over 1000 vinyl albums and over 500 vinyl singles and since about 1990 some 1500 CDs. I own Bose sound sytems and Sony CD systems but I cannot describe adequately the simple joy of reliving my youth in playing my vinyl once again on a simple one piece unit like this! The sound is great for a £120 record player and the speakers do a fine job but the whole point of this system (hence the "retro" tag) is to take you back in time and from that perspective it absolutely exceeds prior expectations for my wife and me. It is simple to use and looks great (we have bought the mahogony version). If you are kindred spirits of my era I thoroghly recommend this bit of kit!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 28 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have always loved Joni Mitchell since the 1970s but only had a few of her albums (on vinyl). After reading a number reviews I bought this and it is simply superb. It covers what many critics regard as her peak period and I must agree. For around 25 quid a history of her 10 first albums on CD with replica covers gives hours of sublime listening. Glass of wine, lights low and Joni on the CD player. Bliss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bigger is better, 28 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great price (saved a tenner on high street) and speedy delivery (courtesy of "Prime") and reading earlier comments meant we chose the 2000 watt. It was a sensible decision. It is used in our conservatory and is substanially more efficient than our older less powerful oil heater. 5 star deserved.
