1.0 out of 5 stars Poor choice of a cover, 26 Nov 2013
This review is from: High Hopes (MP3 Download)
Why, why, why?

Why put out a re-recording of a song he originally did in 1995, that was then regarding as surplus and given away s a bonus CD with the Blood brothers DVD.

Not a great song and certainly not to the standard you would expect.

1.0 out of 5 stars The final nail in the Reality TV coffin, 4 Nov 2013
The final nail in the Reality TV coffin. If they want to show this dysfunctional US extended family they should really make it less obvious that this is scripted, also the interviews with the family members also show that the whole series is not just the fly on the wall documentary of a "modern family" but more along the lines of TOWIE and Geordie Shore in that the cast do work to scripts.

Please stop dumbing down reality TV shows and just show the family how they are!

1.0 out of 5 stars A desperate appeal for funds?, 22 Oct 2013
Poorly written, seems more like an appeal eo you feel sorry for them and donate more money to the fund!

Very one sided and it appears they do not want any opinion other than their own to be heard, they do not acknowledge any failings in themselves or if they could have done anything to prevent this.

I was left with the opinion, if this was a working class family who this had happened to, there would be no sympathy, tv appearances and a "spokesperson" and social services would be all over them for leaving their children unattended. That is unbelievible, but seems to have been "erased" from this account.

1.0 out of 5 stars Showaddywaddy, the inventers of Karaoke!, 22 Oct 2013
This review is from: Red Star (Audio CD)
The Leicester Men's third album and again it is a album of 50's cover songs, takes me back to the early 70's when every working men's club had a band on a Saturday night doing cover versions of popular songs of the 50's and 60's.

This band where actually the forerunner for Karaoke singing in that they are just basically singing songs that were done by other people and they used to dress as Teddy Boys. Karaoke in turn evolved into the X factor and the Voice which is just glorified Karaoke singing as done by drunken people in all cities.

Yes Showaddywaddy have a lot to answer for!

1.0 out of 5 stars Michael Palin would have been better!, 22 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Watched this DVD as I was told it was very funny, all it seems to be is an unappreciative man who is sent around the world and who does nothing but moan. This must have took 10 minutes to script with Karl and his mates Ricky and Steve just making up lines he can use to moan about everywhere he goes. They could have got someone else to do this, why not Michael Palin, his round the world documentaries are very informative and he does seem appreciative that he has the opportunity to travel paid for by the TV company and make interesting programs.

You would think that if the budget ran to flying him around the world they would have been able to give him a clothing budget, that scruffy combat jacket he wears should go for a start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wings - The band the Beatles could have been, 3 Oct 2013
This review is from: Band On The Run (Audio CD)
A classic album from Wings which highlights the failings in the Beatles, super album, great songs and beautifully played. Now if only the Beatles could have done just one album as good as this.

A lovely version of the old standard, a studio recording of the song he performed at the George Harrison tribute concert.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 16 Sep 2013
This DVD shows the middle aged Madonna, keeping her clothes on, I was expecting some nudity after reading the reviews from the tour when it was on. She lip syncs through her songs with the carefully choreographed routines and the scripted audience interaction.

For Madonna in the nude get Body of Evidence instead.
