5.0 out of 5 stars .The Black and Spotted Sheep, 20 Sept. 2012

This review is from: The Laughing Stalk (Audio CD)
My wife hates Woven Hand so I havn't heard this album much yet, I've played it in the car a couple of times, I find all the now 6 Woven Hand albums incredibly inspiring and uplifting. The fact that not everyone is going to get it is an affirmation of how special this work is.
The context of this music is more spiritual than religious and it has a context which needs to be understood and to be of relavance to you. Thematically it is fairly exclusively about a relationship with God, In the history of art in general this has allways been a major and once an. exclusive theme, The sincerity and inteligence of this music puts the timeless meditation on this topic into a completely new and intensely powerful medium . There is nothing else like this it is more than simple entertainment or another media commodity if you get it that's great if not I don't think it really matters . In my experience you'll either love Woven Hand and 16 Horsepower or you'll hate it like my wife does. To be honest I've never met anyone else who likes it but I am certain that if you do you'll buy this album anyway and like me you will be as inspired and uplifted as you have been by all the previous WH and 16HP output .

Winnie the Pooh

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic presentation of the complete AA Milne WTP canon, 4 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Winnie the Pooh (Paperback)
This is a loverly book in every way
clearly the stories and poems themselves are beyond any kind of critisism, containing so much profound wisdom and insight in such a delightful and captivating context, this is not anything like the mostly shockingly bad Walt Disney parody it spawned, however if WD keeps these storys on peoples bookshelves then he has done a great service to humanity.
The pictures are all works of art and whilst reading this book to our two year old I have often found myself lost within them and not wanting to turn the page, they are also in color which is done very subtly and effectively
Even the paper it's printed on is loverly
I could not recommend this book highly enough
If I didn't buy this book I'd buy the two original WTP books (one of which we have an original copy of) however the addition of color to the pictures in this volume make it something very special.

you can also buy all four books in this color format individually but why not get them all at once

5.0 out of 5 stars second thoughts, 10 Sept. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sirens (Audio CD)
Initially I reveiwed this album and gave it 5 stars, I have since heard it a few times and have changed my opinion drastically, this album has an instant appeal based on some pretty competant guitar playing however after a short time the songwriting has struck me as lazy and unfocused and a little bit annoying, as well as at times being a bit negative and depressing, the album also suffers from some fairly poor musical arrangements which it doesn't realy need, at only slightly over 30 minuites (and that includes two outakes which are effectivelly unfinished, unwritten songs) I think a bit more effort would have paid off all round, there are one or two tracks that almost make it worth the price but I paid more for this album than I've paid for any for a while based on Pete Greenwood playing solo and live which he seems to do very well, however this record is sloppy and lazy and that is a real shame as potentially it could have been brilliant, maybe next time

5.0 out of 5 stars Holy Woven Stones !!, 9 Sept. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ten Stones (Audio CD)
I got this Woven Hands 4th album today and I've played it twice in the car. It is realy quite heavy in a good way and has a much fuller sound that the previous 3 albums. It has nine absolutely brilliant songs on it, I could not begin to describe how much I love them allready, this is the best WH record so far by far, which considering the absolute greatness of all WH previous output is saying something. there is also one cover of a realy awful song (in my opinion) maybe I'll get it later but it seems realy out of place to me now.
I absolutely love Woven Hand this music is compleatly unique and in a field and a class of it's own, if there is anyone else producing music as great and as moving and meaningfull as this I'd love to hear them

5.0 out of 5 stars Sent from Coventry, 10 Nov. 2007

Yes there are a couple of songs here you won't want to listen to too much, they're not bad they just arn't as great as the rest, However many of the finest albums in history have some not as great tracks on them. The songs that are good on WLADITT are absolutely brilliant, The Enemy have something to say which is refreshing when many bands are content to write meaningless lyrics rather than express any emotion or feeling, WLADITT gives a voice to the sense of disapointment and frustration that is central to the English way of life in 2007, I think this is a realy great debut from a truely original band who have worked hard and remained true to their roots, I have to give it 5 stars because I love it

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be afraid of the Gallows, 13 Sept. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't normally listen to shouty hardcore music, I quite like the more intellegent socialy responsible end of the punk spectrum, it turns out I have something in my DNA that makes me want to test the structural stability of my house and the patience of my neighbors playing the incredible Gallows album F****** loud, It's a bit scary but it's also realy genuine and positive. If you want another reason to respect Gallows other than this great album watch their videos on youtube and myspace or if you can take the exitement see them live (I'll probably be in bed). I think this band are going to be BIG and that's because they have worked hard and are focused on what they do. Consequently this album is F**(sorry it's infectious)Great and deserves a big five stars plus another five for the extra disc which unlike most bands bonus material is equally brilliant and definately essential for your neighbors enjoyment

5.0 out of 5 stars love it, 7 Sept. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I realy like this album it is realy fresh and inventive and displays a lot of musical competancy. The drums and bass are realy tight in a way that reminds me of placebos first album and the melodys are realy nice. It inspires an emotional response for me which a lot of music nowadays doesn't (perhaps I'm getting old and jaded)for the price here you can't go wrong. A very immpresive first album.
