5.0 out of 5 stars REALLY CONSISTENT NU BOOGIE DISCO SOUL ALBUM., 31 May 2015
This review is from: SUPERCONDUCTOR (Audio CD)
I bought this after hearing the lovely "Round and Round" on Jeff Young's Jazz FM show and I am so pleased I discovered this gem on an album. Though Superconductor definitely a nu soul boogie type set it feels a bit more edgy and modern than some similar albums. I particularly love the track "Monolith" which reminds me of early Paul Hardcastle. Good stuff and an artist to watch

This review is from: World's Midnight (Audio CD)
this is a really rare album on vinyl which i'd seen listed but never actually heard. i was glad to finally get a copy and i'm really pleased to report its a very nice uk gospel boogie/soul album which features Paul Johnson on lead vocals. I'd certainly recommend it to any fan of british soul music

5.0 out of 5 stars DEEP FUNK, 7 April 2015
i guess we all know the score by now, joey and sean dig deeper than most for obscure, under the radar disco, boogie and the like. the emphasis is on the funkier end of things, but still quite disco tinged. i can honestly say i'd not heard of any of these tracks before but its a really solid selection and i'm pleased to know there is still so much undiscovered music out there from this era

1.0 out of 5 stars RUBBISH, 6 Mar. 2015
i've had quite a few printers and this one is a rubbish. its never worked properly. keeps switching itself off then you cannot switch it back on, you have to unplug it to get it to do anything but even then, it doesn't work. it's the worse printer i've ever owned. i'm going to throw it out because its like not having a printers as 70% time it doesn't work, so you have to remember to print things off at work. please don't buy this printer

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting selection of left field disco, boogie and funk, 12 Nov. 2014
These UTI comps from some of the worlds deepest collectors are always worth a listen. I only knew 1 of the songs and as usual there is some interesting obscure disco, soul, boogie and more left field cuts. My favourites are the steel drum version of Roy Ayers "Can You See Me", the new edit of Skye "Ain't No Need" revealing the song section i'd never heard before. Love the uk afro boogie cut by Jean Adebambo "Say That You Love Me" (which i first heard on Gilles Peterson's show), while Charlie Mike Sierra's Italo disco "On The Moon" is also great. Other highlights from State of Grace, Blackway & Helene, Tut Tut Twins and Shelbra Deane. It's quite a diverse selection so yes there's a couple of songs that are not quite up my street but when you're getting 20 cuts for this price it seems a bit mean to grumble not every track great. I'd certainly recommend this album to those who like to explore and discover less known black music.

5.0 out of 5 stars great new album from faze action, 7 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Body of One (Audio CD)
Firstly i wanted to say i really liked the previous FA album Stratus Energy. Now with this new set the Lee brothers take their nu disco sound further into the 80s punk disco style of bands like ESG and Liquid Liquid with some boogie style synths thrown in for good measure. In these days of endless re edits its good to see some producers still actually originating new material. "Body of One" is a good listen through out with maybe "Time By Your Side" being an initial favourite.

This review is from: Straight White Male (Hardcover)
well written and at points hilariously accurate analysis of the male psyche. i would recommend it to friends, tho i found the ending a little corny. something darker would have been more fitting

2.0 out of 5 stars not great, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
as soon as i unpacked the GF829 i immediately thought it felt very cheap and plasticy. it also contained a terrible dated selection of american folk songs like "She'll be coming round the mountain" and hardly anything vaguely modern. we'd been round a friends house a few weeks earlier who had something much better which had cost less. we decided this was a mistake so we sent it back

3.0 out of 5 stars more of the same, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i guess its harder for a frivolous sex comedy to remain interesting for 6 seasons in the way that more gritty shows like breaking bad or the sopranos did. this is still worth watching if you are a fan but it feels like they've ran out of ideas. tim minchin's role as the sex addict washed up rock star doesn't help proceedings

i find some of the natural products on the market don't actually do the job needed for me. this one does, so that's all there is to say
