4.0 out of 5 stars A bargain, 14 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Winter Enclosure (Audio CD)
Bought this in the bargain basement, for under £[] and it ain't bad. All girl (except for male drummer) symphonic/gothic/melodic metal, in Nightwish, Within Temptation and Leaves Eyes territory. CD good enough to be copied to my MP3 player.
If this is still knocking around at a silly price, it is well worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 15 July 2011

What can I say about a phone charger. It works, price was reasonable, and very lightweight, so ideal for travelling when baggae allowances can be an issue.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 18 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Abigail II (Audio CD)
Perhaps I was expecting too much, but whereas Abigail is a bona-fide KKKKK Klassic, this sequel is a bit of let down. It is a reasonable album, best track is probably The Wheelchair, but I expect more than "reasonable" from the King. His full vocal range is on show, but the album as a whole, lacks something. Buy this if you are a completist, but if you have a tight budget, then I would suggest there are better albums out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, 7 April 2011
This review is from: Grace Submerged (Audio CD)
Bought this in the bargain basement for under £2 including postage. Decent slab of symphonic metal, good enough to be copied onto my phone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for a fiver, 15 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In The Shadows (Audio CD)
1st album by the reformed Mercyful Fate from 1992, not as good as Don't Break The Oath or Melissa but worth a listen, especially when it is currently selling for a fiver.,

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic King Diamond, 15 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Abigail/Fatal Portrait (Audio CD)
The first 2 King Diamond albums for the price of one. Fatal Portrait is a 3* album, decent but not outstanding. Abigail however, is a classic 5* album, on a par with Melissa, the best album made by King Diamonds' other band Mercyful Fate. This is a concept album about a haunted 18th century house and contains everything you should want and expect from a King Diamond album. It says a lot about this album, that even though it was released over 20 years ago, and didn't dent the charts, it still gets played in the rock pubs in Brum, and usually gets the air guitars going.

4.0 out of 5 stars Czech War Hero, 15 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting biography of the heroic exploits of a Czech war hero and the RAF men he flew with such as 'Willie' Williams. Contains plenty of black and white photos from the war. Shame it has been out of print for around 50 years, so can only be bought second hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy, 6 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably the best Blind Guardian album in my collection. Effectively a greatest hits set from their earlier years, with full on audience participation, from a very excited Japanese crowd, singing along enthusiastically.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I remember them, 6 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Abominog (Audio CD)
Saw Heep a few times in the early 80's when they usually did 4 or 5 tracks off this album in their set, and thoroughly enjoyed them. Listening now, having bought it earlier this year, this feels a bit dated. A few good songs, but quite a bit of filler. Better to sample the songs, and download the handful of good tracks, go for one of their best of..... compilations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful and informative, 6 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Buy this as well as the Fodors guide to Aruba, as it is quite informative, but if you just want one book on the island, then the Fodors 2010 is slightly better than this.
