2.0 out of 5 stars the greatest hits why not the original versions ?, 30 Dec. 2009
If im not mistaked , the first public image ltd compilation released in 1990 , having purchased this with the high expectation , i was left pondering as to why there was such an awful sax playing along during THIS IS NOT A LOVE SONG a far cry from the origianl version i rememberd in 1983, sounding more like relax by frankie goes to hollywood in places .
RISE sounds like a 12 inch remix version , not the original 7 inch version released in 1986 and so i wonder why the record company decided not to inform the buyer of the different versions on this cobbled together compilation when it was released .
The first five tracks appear to be the originals from arguably pils most interesting and creative period before they appeared to fall victim to the eighties record producer . awash with synths and overdubs .

Do yourself a favour and purchase the albums between 1979 -86 or better still buy the JOHN LYDON - THE BEST OF BRITISH .... compilation .

Nice looking shirt , shame the black lettering rubs off after just a couple of days - vastly overpriced .

1.0 out of 5 stars Scissor Blisters, 14 Feb. 2005
This review is from: Scissor Sisters (Audio CD)
If youve been an avid viewer of the brits 'in 2005 , no doubt you will already be aware of the success the scissor sisters enjoyed that night , but you may not be aware that the same level of success has eluded them in there home land of the u.s.a , proving that the american public are not as stupid as the british media would have us believe .
This band amount to at best , a novelty act who look as if theyve lost there way to the notting hill carnival and who's music is as challenging and stimulating as an episode of ' Dick and Dom's in da bungalow ' .
There musical trashing of 'pink floyd's comfortably numb' would have you believe they had invited the bee gee's into the studio
, forced them to breathe in balloons filled with helium whilst ingesting L.S.D and sing at the same time .
They score points for comic value , but musically evolve to very little ,and are bland enough to guarantee that there sound will spew from the bowls of daytime commercial radio up and down the country for months to come in the wake of there much undeserved media hype and the handbag dancers will continue to finance there record sales for the foreseeable future .
There may be big , but there not clever !

5.0 out of 5 stars HA HA HANCOCK'S LONG AWAITED HALF HOUR'S on dvd, 14 Sept. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The impact that tony hancock has had on british comedy can never be understated , his bbc radio shows alone , attracting some of the largest listening figures during the mid to late fifties before hancock made the transition to televison in 1956 .
Here at last on dvd , are some of the first HANCOCK'S HALF HOUR television programms originally transmitted in 1957 including a
' hancock's forty-three minutes 1957 christmas special ' this vol.1 captures hancock's genius right at the very beginning of his telivison career , his comic acting complimenting Ray galton and alan simpson's superb scripts , the dvd highlights tony hancock's unique comic talent for which he should be best rememberd ( his personal turmoil late in his career already well documented ) and the bbc should hold there head in shame that it has taken them so long to release this follow up dvd to ' the best of hancock ' released a few years previously.
Fantastic archive comedy from the east cheam maestro ... roll on vol.2

4.0 out of 5 stars all mapped out, 1 Aug. 2004
This review is from: All Mapped Out (Audio CD)
Fans of bands like interpol and bloc. party will immedietly draw comparisons with THE DEPARTURE'S angular snappy guitar sound ,and those who have caught THE KILLERS live this year will have seen THE DEPARTURE (support act ) live and in the flesh already ( if there wernt milling at the bar waiting for the headline act that is ) .
as for a new sound , well that simply isnt the case , but a good sound all the same and certainly one of the most interesting single releases this year , look out for the album and as the phrase goes this space .

1.0 out of 5 stars continue the search, 20 July 2004
This review is from: Call Off the Search (Audio CD)
So much is being made of this new talent katie melua that you would think you were going to be knocked side ways by the u.k's answer to eva cassidy .
What you ultimately recieve is some of the weakest songs i think ive heard sung by a female singer in many years , especially the track ' closest thing to crazy ' which , if any elderly people have listned to , must have them yearning for those pearly gates well before the song reaches its conclusion .
im afraid it really does bring a new meaning to the word
' durge ' and with it being clearly that poor , you can almost guarantee it has , or will be ken bruce's bbc radio 2 single of the week .

3.0 out of 5 stars the history of england very brief clips, 18 Jun. 2004
This review is from: The History Of England [DVD] (DVD)
the great euro 2004 'cash in' begins in dvd form with ' the history of england ' a visual trip through england's past glorious , ( and not so glorious ) 'football team .
As you get further into viewing , your suspicions of this dvd are raised from the endless cheesy music that adorn's so many budget priced poor quality sport's video's of the past , although there are plenty of interview clips of various players and mangers alike , the actual football clips are far to brief , at times cut right down to just quick clips of the goals , england versus holland in euro 96 being just one of the many to suffer this ' quick clip' fate .
Although in all it's not a bad representaion of england's past, the dvd is vastly over priced for the content , there are no extra's , so fans should keep there fingers crossed and hope the bbc decide to release there ' three lion's , the story of england ' series that was aired on television a few years ago on dvd in the near future .

3.0 out of 5 stars pink floyd - live at pompeii dvd, 25 Oct. 2003
like so many floyd fans who have been waiting to update there worn vhs copy's of ' live at pompeii ' this release was eagerly
awaited on dvd , so it came as some surprise that ' the director's cut ' version of the film basically translated as' the directors cut in lots of new and at times ' irrelevant 'footage !! .
beatles fans would be none to pleased to find ' richard lester ' ( director ) cutting in new cips onto ' a hard days night 's dvd release so why ' adrian maben ' ( pompeii director ) felt the need to update this classic rock movie does raise alot of questions , and the never before seen black and white film of the band in paris , included in this dvd , would have made a more interesting addition in the dvd extras in its entirety , than in short parts between songs on the main feature .
although the original version of the movie is also contained on the dvd , the second version of the film with the clips from the band recording ' dark side of the moon ' at emi studios is the version fans were expecting to get on this dvd in its original form , and not alot of interfearing ' rockets taking off 'clips and computerised pompeii scenery !
a classic early seventies rock film , with a a disappointing remodel !! .
