2.0 out of 5 stars Another paranormal cash in, 29 Dec. 2009
I've watched most of the parnormal investigation shows the have sprung up in recent years and, in my opinion, this is one of the least interesting. Nothing of any note is captured on film and the shows main focus is Mia Dolan, who describes what she is picking up at each location. That is fine if you are a believer and find that sort of thing entertaining. However, if you not a fan of of psychics/mediums and are more interested in seeing a serious scientific investigation into the paranormal then this is best avoided.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and enlightening, 29 Dec. 2009
I've watched many of the different paranormal investigation shows that have grown up over recent years and rate this as one of the best. Unlike most shows of this nature, Ghost Hunters concentrates on interviewing witnesses who had strange experiences at each location, rather than taking the approach of bringing in psychics and investigators to record their experiences as they happen. Personally I prefer this approach as it removes the need for producing sensationalist (and dubious) results. Each episode is well researched and interviews are conducted with multiple witnesses. I found this very interesting and it is one of the best, if not the best, paranormal investigation shows I have seen. If you are interested in the paranormal but are not a big fan of the Most Haunted type of approach, then I recommend this.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Bag, 15 Nov. 2008
I was slightly disappointed with this album. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad and certainly has it's moments but, being a big fan of The Waterboys music, I expected better. The albbum features a mixture of acoustic and full band tracks recorded live in Britian and Ireland during 2003-4.
The highlight for me is the fantastic version of Long Way To The Light; Steve Wickham's magnificent fiddle playing makes it very different to the original studio version. Glastonbury Song, Open and The Return Of Jimi Hendrix are all well worth a listen too.
The biggest fault, in my opinion, is the pedestrian playing of the rhythm section, Carlos Hercules and Steve Walters, on the tracks which feature a full band. It's not that they're bad musicians, but compare it to the intuitive understanding between the band that is evident on "The Live Adventures Of The Waterboys" and you'll see what I mean. The energy of that album is sadly lacking here. This is particularly true on Fisherman's Blues and The Whole Of The Moon which have presumably only been included here to attract the casual buyer, as neither song has anything new or different about it to attract the existing fan, who probably has better live recordings of these tracks already.
Overall, not a bad album, but if you want to hear one of the greatest live bands on peak form, try and get hold of "The Secret Life Of..." instead- that features a disc of their legendary Glastonbury 1986 set and is a true ***** album.
