4.0 out of 5 stars A truly great album, but badly mastered., 14 Sep 2012
This review is from: Remission [VINYL] (Vinyl)
2012 vinyl pressing review. I love this album but....

Not a great sounding pressing if I'm honest. It sounds as distorted as the CD. A wasted opportunity on the part of the label Relapse records.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game but awful graphics, 19 Nov 2011
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
just what the hell is going on with the shadows in this game? blocky and horrible. extremely distracting. apparently it gets more and more laggy the longer you play it too. a shame because it could be a really great game

5.0 out of 5 stars Near Perfect Vinyl Box Set, 28 Jan 2011
This review is from: The Vinyl Conflict [VINYL] (Vinyl)
All albums are packaged well in quality outer sleeves that are faithful to the original releases apart from 'God hates us all' and 'Christ Illusion'. These records have the alternative covers. GHUA has the white sleeve with the crosses on rather than the nailed blood stained bible cover. Christ illusion has the 'hand' cover rather than the 'eyepatch jesus' cover.
'World painted blood' and 'God hates us all' come in gatefold sleeves. My small disappointment is that the inner sleeves are a clear plastic bag and the original inner sleeve art is provided on a printed sheet rather than the sleeve itself, but its no real problem. It's all still there. The box is nicely put together. This is all in all a great piece of merchandise!

The best thing to be found with this box set is that all the albums here sound awesome. They have all been remastered for vinyl and the pressings are great. The awful distortion from the hot mastering on the last three albums is thankfully a thing of the past and i'm finally able to hear these albums without them sounding like a mess of digital crackle.

if you are a Slayer fan and a vinyl lover you need this box set.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest black metal album ever, 8 Jan 2011
No black metal has been close to this level of perfection. Pity the cd sounds like it was mastered from a chewed up cassette. If you too love this album, do yourself a favour and get a copy of the vinyl.
I think the actual source material is damaged for this release. What would have been the tracks from side one of the vinyl phase in and out strangely. (Sounds like the master tape is broken... not the remaster. Sound two tracks sound fine)

1.0 out of 5 stars A whole lot of pain, 24 Oct 2010
This review is from: Apple Magic Mouse (Accessory)
The mouse looks very good and the scrolling is very useful but the major downside is that because the mouse is so flat you can not rest your hand on it like a regular mouse.

After an evening of using this mouse i hand shooting pains from my wrist to my little finger and the pain lasted for days. I stopped using the mouse until my hand got better. After a short while i decided to give the mouse another go and the same thing happened.

Yes the mouse looks good and is very clever but it's not very ergonomic at all. I love apple products but i cant understand why they can't make a comfortable mouse.

I truly believe if you are not careful this mouse could seriously injure you.

Oh.. And you cannot right click if any other fingers are resting on the mouse. Really irritating and probably what makes it so uncomfortable to use.

Steve Jobs would probably just tell me im holding it wrong.

Before buying make sure you try one out if you can. And google "magic mouse pain". Im not alone here.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Film But We Want The Directors Cut!, 12 July 2009
I for one shall be waiting for the Directors Cut version to be out before i purchase. A lot of fans are going to be dissapointed if this isnt it. Ive read there will be an ultimate version (according to the director) with tales of the black freighter added too.

..and they'll wonder why loads of people opt to download the hd rip of the directors cut.

4.0 out of 5 stars Idiots should read the manual, 14 April 2008
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
works fine in standby. wii has to be internet connected for this amber mode i believe. not to difficult for anyone with a wireless internet connection at home.

ive read people saying the rear charge slot doesnt work. they are idiots. there is a switch on the back of the wii that selects between the rear charger slot and the rear battery compartment. only one of the 2 rear chargers will work at once.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dull and forgettable, 12 Sep 2007
Drowned in reverb. Not enough memorable music. Dull production (but at least its not been ruined at the mastering stage like VT was). None of the the musicianship shines through in any way so its difficult to even enjoy it from a muso point of view.

People say give it a few listens (and i have given it more than a few) but it doesnt really warrant that much attention if im honest. With there being so many quality albums by this band i cant see why anyone would choose to listen to this one.

Im just thankful they still cut it live. Roll on Wembley in October! :)
