Philips DS3020/05 Portable Docking Speaker for iPod/iPhone - White
Philips DS3020/05 Portable Docking Speaker for iPod/iPhone - White

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 11 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After a lot of research into iPod speakers i decided on this purely on the feedback on Amazon. For a smallish speaker this delivers very good quality sound. It's packs a good deal of ooomph, there is no reduction in sound quality when played loud, there is detail in the sound too. I am very happy with this item & for what it is, the price is very good.

You will need to download the app to your iPod before it works but that takes moments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great packaging, 17 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amnesiac [2CD & DVD] (Audio CD)
Everyone has already commented at depth on the music here. What should be said though is that EMI have done a great job on all the Radiohead reissues. There is an element of cashing in by them as the band are no longer signed to them. The packaging , even down to the knitted book cover of the original special issue is faithfully reproduced here is good. 3 discs in cardboard covers, several postcards of artwork of the time & all the b-sides & welcome live footage as to my knowledge there is only one official live dvd release. Definitely for collectors.

As for the music, it continues where Kid A left off. Experimental but lacks a great central track like "National Anthem" or "Everything in it's right place" that Kid A has.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best!!, 10 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you like the music of Bryan which has mood & texture this is for you. The band must count as one of his finest! As usual he has a small army on stage with him but the arrangements, tightness, mood they create & the great time they are all having is clear to see. This together with the best of his solo output from the 80's make a great package. The director must also take credit for capturing the whole thing. Well worth a view. I just wish i was old enough to see the tour back in 88-89. Can't wait for his new solo album due next month!! An essential Ferry purchase!

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disapointing, 14 May 2008
This review is from: Hard Candy (Audio CD)
This album is no where near one of her best. The tunes are weak, the songs meander, Timbaland is old news. Madonna used to innovate, here she's just copying the crowd. If you want Timbaland go for Nelly Furtado's last album or the last Duran Duran album. This is her worst album for over 10 years, Madge , please bring back William Orbit or Stuart Price ( Jacques le cont ) This album is bland.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, 10 July 2007
This is one of the best, most imaginative concerts I have seen, the songs, fantastic use of graphics are what separates this from the masses!! To be going for over 20 years & still come out with a show like this is amazing. The only let down for me was the short documentary. It could've been a lot better & maybe followed them around the whole tour, not just Mexico. If you want to know what happens behind the scenes on a PSB tour check out the PSB V America book by Chris Heath.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great camera, 20 April 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Technically, this is a great easy to use camera. The zoom is a great feature on such a small camera. A handy feature is the easily accesible flash options for various light settings. One design fault though - it's very difficult to line up a picture looking at the screen in bright sunshine. I would have thought that something so basic as that would've been taken care of by Olympus as this is not a cheap camera & they're hardly a new camera company.

Overall this was a good buy & the above is the only problem I've encountered.

5.0 out of 5 stars A corkin read, 7 Dec 2006
Morgan frequently comes across as an arrogant odious toad but don't let that put you off!. This book is a fascinating read, full of storys of his dealing with Diana, Fergie, Jacko et all. Also very interesting dealings with all the major ( no pun intended ) politicians of the 1990,s & how sleazy & self serving they are.

Very revealing & a great insight into his previous career.
