This review is from: Blood/Lines (Audio CD)
Was there a secret focus group round my house? For me this is like all the best tracks from Emily's last three albums but doubled and on skates. With her dark, powerful, sad, soft as black silk, beautiful, voice she breathes a burning, icy life into her intricately constructed verses (packed full of references, how much has she read??) yet still manages to remain totally in control of a new, vastly louder, reverberating backing performance. I can see opinion here is sharply divided and I'm guessing that's down to where you're coming from, musically speaking. Emily Jane White is definitely way out there on her own but if like me you got here via the likes of Hope Sandoval, Chan Marshall and Marissa Nadler then this is probably your thing too.

I have all Marissa's albums now and have been a faithful follower for nearly ten years, so I'm hugely biased, but I can listen to her all day on random repeat (given the chance) and still find something new. She's not everyone's cup of tea but I for one love her to bits.

One of Zvezda's older kits, the ISU152, reworked here with parts for the 122. Should build into a fairly convincing model shape-wise once you've carved off all the flash, but it's badly let down by the supplied vinyl tracks which are awful and will need replacing to get that mean metal monster look sorted. On the up side when a kit is this cheap you can justify replacing them with an aftermarket set.

I have yet to turn out a convincing handle or grab rail with any of these jigs, the plastic is not really tough enough to form tight ninety degree bends. Back to bending wire round Lego bricks for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like the cover says...., 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...a fascinating collection of photographs of the M.A.N. assembly plant and testing grounds in wartime Nurnberg, all accompanied by fascinating background information. The photos are of superb quality throughout, even the indoor shots of cramped assembly lines and machine shops are perfectly clear, and for this life-long tank nut and keen armor modeler, utterly engrossing. Best Christmas present 2013, no contest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't do exactly what it says on the tin, 30 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whilst this case does snap neatly and securely around my phone and allow easy access to all the controls, which is good, the flip up screen cover doesn't ever shut properly, which isn't. It has no positive shut position, no clip or magnet and won't even lie flat under gravity when the phone is lead flat. On the box it says closing the lid will switch the screen off. It doesn't. The magnetic lens cover is neat, though you'll have to find your own chord to attach it to the case if you don't want to lose it. Overall a pretty average case that lets down an awesome gadget.

...Hawkwind have a friend for life in me. And mainly because of this LP. It was love at first listen and still sounds amazing nearly forty years later. In fact It sounds even better in MP3 form, still finding new things in there.

5.0 out of 5 stars An oldie but goodie, 22 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm a life long tank nut and build loads of kits. Tamiya's Leopard A4 is exactly the sort of therapy I needed after some epic struggles with recent purchases from other manufacturers. I do like a challenge but was getting heartily sick of things not fitting and excessive flash to clean up on the cheaper kits and ludicrous complexity and needlessly high parts-count with the more expensive ones.
The Leopard went together faultlessly in a weekend. Tamiya mouldings are always crisp and clean (no flash) and this is no exception. The instructions are crystal clear, the construction sequence is logical and feasible.....you'd be suprised....and even the rubber-band tracks look the part. Poor tracks let down so many tank models - no need to resort to after market track-link sets here for any one except hardcore rivet-counters.
The kit IS thirty four years old now (1979 moulded on the lower hull) and thus not 'state of the art' but it was a breeze to build and looks a hell of lot like the real ones I saw zooming around the arena at Bovington Tank Museum last summer. Just what the doctor ordered. Now, where's that Dragon Models Tiger 1?

5.0 out of 5 stars Impossibly beautiful, 20 Mar. 2013

I'm no good with words and have never felt compelled to comment here before, but with the lightest, most achingly beautiful touch Phildel just blew the rest of my music collection to pieces. Five stars is nowhere near enough.
