Far from usual listening. Got it after watching a Rock 'n' Roll live show. Great songs. Well produced. Catchy. Well worth a listen even if it's not really your era. Voice amazing.

Great select of songs to get you in the Christmas mood. One or two rock,n,roller, but mostly the classics done in classic style. Can't go wrong. Singing first class.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Doom, 23 July 2014

Almost a classic. Doom. Think Black Sabb, maybe a bit slower at times with longer guitar solos. Great stuff. Vocals you'll get them first time.


Selfish Whining Monkeys: How we Ended Up Greedy, Narcissistic and Unhappy
Selfish Whining Monkeys: How we Ended Up Greedy, Narcissistic and Unhappy
by Rod Liddle
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Liddle, you're spot on., 11 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only heard about the book because of the reported arguement between Liddle and Albhai-Brown, and anything which gets up Brown's nose needs a look at. I can see immediately why Brown would hate it, being in my opinion right smack in the middle of what Liddle refers to as the faux-left, but it's attacks ARE NOT confined just to left but also the right.

To start with parental guidance is required as some of the words are very coarse but they make the point, and also get a dictionary, a big one at that, or you'll be struggling if you don't hold an A Level in English.

The book itself, though mostly anecdotal or personal experience is a fair reflection on society. The part about the new school had me in stitches and I am itching to get time to play `6 degrees`. Think most people will find themselves noddy in agreement. Leaves the reader to find their own solutions.

A must read.

This review is from: Beyond (Audio CD)
I have a tentancy to compare most recent, 2000 onwards, rock/metal by Masterplans debut album and Gamma Rays No World Order. Want more, but can only give a 3. Just lack that catchiness you require to play over and over again. Nothing wrong as such but .............

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the usual operatic rubbish from a woman., 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DOMINION (Audio CD)
Main gripe with female vocalist fronted bands is that after a great intro's the songs seem to drop into an evening at the opera and my interest wanes. Not this. Try Sabbath, Purple, Maiden all rolled into one and have a woman sing. Sadly very rare. The singing reminded me of vocals from an old Prog Rock group Pallas. Anyway, enough of memory lane. This one will be staying in the car CD player for quite a bit. Well recormended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit too Lovey Dubby., 14 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Thrive (Audio CD)
First two tracks great what with the synth beginings, but after that it all got a bit too samely. Mostly girl meets boy, girl breaks up with boy. Kind of a heavier female version of Foreigner. Musically great. Plenty of catchy guitar solos, use of synth and keys brilliant but just lacked something deep. If there had been a bit more prog AOR and / or Power Metal in this album then it could easily hit a 4. but as it is just a 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough, 9 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pieces of Eight (Audio CD)
Loved this album in 78, brought it many times since when the LP or CD was worn out. Just about says all you need to know about life. Almost bible. From keys to lead guitar, bass solos to complex mixing of the drum. Lyrically beyond any other album. A band at it's peak. EPIC.

2.0 out of 5 stars After Way Away a bit of a let down, 9 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shine (Audio CD)
Way Away had great bouncey pop rock with catchy choruses. Shine does not. 1 and 2 good,3 ok, after that, hhhmmm, I began to struggle. Likely to go into the collection and not see the "light of day". To many ballards, not enough guitars. Just can't get into it. So wanted more. PS in my opinion you should take a clue from the cover, this isn't being sold on the music :(.

2.0 out of 5 stars Need pictures to inspire, 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK full of recipes but few if any pictures of the end product. Find pictures can inspire, they give a goal, without them it's harder to get motivated.
