A great pop gun with smooth action. Easy to use, doesn't stick or drag, and makes a great popping sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost classic, 30 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Repression (Audio CD)
This is such an underrated album. As the previous reviewer has said, if you like early 80's rock like Maiden, AC/DC, Judas Priest, Michael Schenker, then you'll love this. But it's not simply standard fare, it has it's own flavour, perhaps because they are French.

I have the LP of this and I've been searching for this "Version Anglaise" CD at a reasonable-ish price. At £17.99 it was expensive but not as expensive as it could have been, and worth every penny. If you find it for the same or less it's an essential purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works superbly!, 30 Aug. 2013

This is the best screen cleaner I've ever bought. I have 2 young children that like to touch my LCD TV and LED computer monitor, leaving grubby & sticky fingerprints. But this cleaner takes them off easily, even the ones that other cleaners would not remove. It also leaves absolutely no smears at all. With the inclusion of the microfiber towel this is all you'll ever need to keep your screens clean. A superb screen cleaner, extremely easy to use, and it's even kind on the environment. I can't recommend it enough.

1.0 out of 5 stars Inferior California Jam Bootleg - Beware!, 23 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This DVD is nothing more than a cheap bootleg of the VHS tape of Deep Purple MK3 show at the California Jam 1974. If I could have given it no stars I would have. Don't get me wrong, the California Jam show itself is stunning and deserves a place in every rock fans collection, and well worth five stars. But don't buy this cheap bootleg, buy the official release here: Live In California 74 [DVD] [2006]. Or direct from the Deep Purple Appreciation Society (check http://www.shop.deep-purple.net/ ). The official release is better quality, contains the full set with the restored track "Lay Down Stay Down", extra alternate versions of "Burn" and "Might Just Take Your Life" (as well as the originals), plus super 8 backstage clips, airport clips, commentary, photo gallery, and upgraded audio.

And since when was Leipzig in California anyway.....?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than BOTN, 29 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow! What an album! I thought Blood of the Nations was great but this is a step up from that. As good as Restless & Wild and Balls to the Wall. Or dare I say it? Even better. Certainly more modern sounding, and oh so powerful too. If BOTN proved they could still do it then this album raises the bar considerably. Every rock fan should buy this.

The accompanying DVD has some great live cuts too and a couple of videos.

This review is from: Rocks (Audio CD)
This is one of Aerosmith's classic albums from the 70s. In fact it's one of their best ever. Made when Aerosmith really were making great music, not like the bland rubbish they churn out today. If you're new to the band this is a great place to start, and if you already like them then this is a definite must-have. Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen, listen, listen again, 7 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clockwork Angels (Audio CD)
This is a dense yet ultimately rewarding album. What at first seems to be too much of everything with little light and shade slowly reveals itself with repeated listens. You have to put the work in but more credit to Rush for the belief in the intelligent listening abilities of their audience.

With repeated listens, through the immaculate musicianship and often 'jamming feel' of the album we gradually find more and more of the hidden depths of Rush. And oh what depths they are! This is no mere concept story illustrated by music, it is a pure listening experience born from the virtuosity of three exceptional musicians able to take you on a very special musical journey. A concept album for the modern age.

The items in the fan-pack are welcome extras too. The magazine has some in-depth interviews and there is plenty of Rush history in there too (although most ardent fans will know all the historical stuff anyway). The keyring is a nice little token to put on my keys, although I doubt I will ever put the poster up.

P.S. The time shown on the clock on the album cover is 9:12. On the 24-hour clock this is 21:12.

I bought these for my girlfriend who is well versed in reading good quality books, and she absolutely loves them. In fact I'm going to have to read them now as well as they certainly do sound great.

These earpads are perfect for my Sennheiser PX200 headphones. The real deal. Pretty good price at £6.99 too as I know headphone replacement parts can be expensive on the higher quality headphones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!, 20 April 2012

I've been a long time fan of Ozzy for more years than I can remember but even I found this to be a well made film about his life and career. It's informative, funny and also emotional in places. And very honest too. If you're an Ozzy fan or just a lover of good rock music I can't recommend this enough. I'd also recommend Ozzy's book, I Am Ozzy I Am Ozzy
