2.0 out of 5 stars Very dissapointing, 29 Aug 2007
Every photo I take with this camera under every setting has an unnatural red tint to it. Auto white balance seems to be the main culprit but even using one of the custom settings produces sickly, plastic looking photographs. The definition is very poor and focusing is also a big problem. As mentioned in a previous review this camera is useless for indoor photography or under low light. I've seen much better photographs of the same scene taken with cheaper 5 megapixel cameras. I've had to go back to using my 35 mm film camera. Save your money, don't buy this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb band, great album, flawed prodution., 26 Sep 2000
This review is from: Black Love (Audio CD)
I am a huge Whig's fan and I bought this album after "Gentlemen" and "1965" . For me it was a bit of a dissapointment as it falls between those two albums stylistically but never quite reaches the heights of either of them. My main problem with this album is the the production. The sound is far too clinical and "Rawk" and would have benefitted from a bit of mud and smoke thrown into the mix a la "1965". All too often the guitars seem to be set to 10 when the band could have just let their burgeoning sense of songwriting dynamics get the point across. Songs such as "Crime Scene","Honkey's Ladder" and "Bulletproof" gracefully dodge and weave before getting to their unashamedly kick ass choruses while "Step Into the Light" and "Faded" sound sultry and gothic. Other songs on the album could have done with a bit more work, "Blame etc." is particularly messy while "Summers Kiss" recalls David Lee Roth era Van Halen and thats the worst possible thing I could say about it. The use of strings on this album is good but too often underused. The stings during the chorus of "Going to Town" are so low down in the mix they are barely audible but contain the best part of the melody while the aforementioned "Blame etc." could have benefitted from a full "Shaft" style string and brass section. Lyrically "Black Love" sounds like the least personal Afghan Whigs album as most of the songs seem to concern two fictional protagonists. This is fitting as the album is meant to be the soundtrack to a film they never got round to making but it almost seems as if Greg Dulli has simply learned these words from watching other films, particularly noir. The Afghan Whigs make music powerful enough to change your life. My advise is if you want to wallow in the regret of love gone bad buy "Gentlemen" or if you would rather listen to sexy, soulful rock buy "1965". If you like those two albums buy this one next.
