5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and practical, 28 July 2014
Very sturdy and practical. Bought this to use in camper van so things can drip dry while we relax! Ideal as holds many utensils (clever slots for glasses on the side) then folds away for easy storage. Excellent quality.

3.0 out of 5 stars a talented band, 26 Feb 2002
This review is from: Jimmy Eat World (Audio CD)
This album isn't for heavy, darker music lovers, but is more of a lighter version of Blink 182. Jimmy Eat World have a powerfull and striking sense of rhythm. The album starts off strongly with Salt Sweat Sugar and A Praise Chorus which are both vibrant and energetic with plenty of power. These are balanced by some more mild, tranquil tracks including Hear You Me and Sundown, the latter just slightly boring. These provide a strong contrast to the darker Get It Faster, which begins with eerie, distorted sounds; continuing with a steady beat throughout the song which is fairly quiet during the verses building up the tension before it suddenly becomes loud and heavy during the chorus.
Jim Adkins makes good use of his voice, which is slightly reminiscent of Savage Garden's sound at some points. The band use an impressive range of instruments, proving their talent and ability. The album captivates Jimmy Eat World's style of rock with a delicate, sensitive side.

4.0 out of 5 stars Infectious, just like the record label states, 31 Jan 2002
This review is from: Nu-Clear Sounds (Audio CD)
Yet another brilliant album from Ash, which was released in the late nineties and is the their first album which features Charlotte. Even though this album hasn't proved to be as popular as their others, it is still an album of excellence, and strong punk rock. This album contains harsher, heavier sounds to previous hits like the classic Girl From Mars, but it also contains more mellow songs than they've produced before. Guitars and drums are on top from in every track; from true rock like Numbskull, which aptly begins with a scream from Tim, to the more mellow tracks like the serene Folk Song and Aphrodite.
The album begins with Projects, powerfully rhythmical, a typical album opener from the band. The last track on the album could quite possibly be one of the most beautiful songs ever made, Im Gonna Fall is a lullaby in its own right. All the tracks imbetween these two are also impressive and Ash's versatility is proved.
Wildsurf whirls by in a haze of strong drum beats and an exeptional guitar melody. Jesus Says is also another strong track worth noting, and is almost Glam, while Death Trip 21 is somewhat heavier and darker. Low Ebb is a slower track, slightly grungier than the rest. Another which is fairly slow to begin with is Burn, but then the chorus kicks in and Ash make good use of the loud/quiet phenomenom.
This album includes epic solos, intelligent lyrics, and Tim's voice on good from, stretching slighly with the higher notes in Im Gonna Fall, but still good nonetheless.
Charlotte described this album as " kinda the direction you'd expect a band to go in after quite a few albums". All in all it is more than an accomplished album.
