5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the original!, 6 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Diamonds (Cover) (MP3 Download)
Its not often the case that I prefer the cover to the original song, but Steam Powered Giraffe really did it with this song. It has more heart and soul than the Beyonce version and I think it suits The Kneck's voice better too.

A wonderful album with several outstanding tracks, well worth it! If you like Drag Race then this really is the album for you.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great device, totally useless without a cable (Windows 8 especially), 6 Jan 2013
Contary to the advertisement, buy a printer cable or don't even bother with this one. Epson have really missed the point; you can print & scan wirelessly once it's been installed, but you won't be able to install it without manually connecting it to your computer.

No cable is included in the box, so make sure you buy one. Generally quite a nice printer+scanner, but very disappointed with Epson. No support or wireless drivers are available either and their Windows 8 support is atrocious.

1.0 out of 5 stars Read the origonals... and ask Todd to stop!, 14 Feb 2012
Sadly disappointing. This entirely lacks the charm and eloquence of Anne's series with Todd McCaffery appearing to 'miss the point' frequently. Gone is the our immersion in the world of Pern; instead of native terms such as 'blackrock' (coal) and 'agenothree' (HN03), now the characters refer shamelessly to substances such as Quartz and Citrine by their 'earth' geological names and contemporary properties. The themes are blunt and obvious and not only lack time period (at what point in Pern's history did women regress to second class citizens and remain so throughout living memory?) but seem present simply to furnish the antagonist with opportunity for chivalry and honour. Here is a new author with guaranteed publication riding the legacy of the old. I am sure Todd McCaffery will get better, as newly-published authors often do, but skip DragonHarper and read either one of the more recent, or older books.
