4.0 out of 5 stars Still the best..., 3 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Phantom Radio (Audio CD)
this gets 4 stars because its mark lanegan. i must admit this isn't my favourite album by someone who's music I have followed slavishly over the past decade or so. Harvest Home is really strong - but play the intro next to the intro of Abba 'Gimme Gimme Gimme'...perhaps this 80's thing is even closer than I thought! ' I am the Wolf' is classic, core material and great simple lyirc as well.. Very listenable and atmospheric and its good that he is trying new stuff all the time throughout but like 'Imitations' not as good as some of the stuff that has come before and there is alot of it.
In case you have all the band and solo stuff...
If you have missed it - check out his 'Twilight Brothers' version of Massive Attack's 'Live with me' , or his tribute version of Tim Buckley's - Cafe, or Tim Hardin's Red Baloon, or the Stuff with 'Mad Season' from the 90's, or Nick Lowe's ' I Am the Beast from Texas Chainsaw..... or the stuff from the bootleggers from the film about bootleggers.......etc etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars right size but no eye-hole on top for spike (even though it shows a photo of one in the product description), 16 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
it fits ok - but it doesn't feature the reinforced hole for the finial on top. In fact there is no hole on top/ we put it on and left the finial off, but it loses points for not being as pictured in the product description and there is even a photo of one with a hole. too much hassle to return it and it is the right size

5.0 out of 5 stars it worked!, 16 Oct 2014

it worked well. re-cut the thread on a damaged screw hole on motorcycle handlebars. took it gently. nicely packaged and laid out in box, but not sure how tough it would be. that said, it worked!

5.0 out of 5 stars good position for a road bike, 9 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is a really useful addition and easy to fit - mainly to keep an eye on where my wife is riding behind me to make sure we are close on long rides - but also good for traffic which i wasn't expecting
it needed taping internally to make it tight enough to stop moving and it was a bit of a fiddle to get in, but it does work and this position is the best for a road bike mirror

5.0 out of 5 stars first job worked ok, 9 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
seems to be fine so far - re-cut a corroded bolt hole in mcycle engine casing and after a bit of fiddling it worked.
Dealer wouldn't spend time on it - so i guess its money well spent

easy fit and good quality - we opted to spend on the official vauxhall ones and it was worth it - surf boards etc all accommoated and literally a couple of minutes to fit securely

5.0 out of 5 stars ... and discos in the village and the kids will like this one, 21 July 2014
I get these for the local events and discos in the village and the kids will like this one. In fact I can't see much if anything missing from the top 10 or 20 if you look at this with now 87. It has all the recent hits up to this week.
