4.0 out of 5 stars Great potential, 12 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great potential. Saw this band this year at Number 6 festival and they were great Live. The album seems quite experimental and therefore lacks an overall feel. I personally preferred the harder sound of Vultures and Tokyo. I believe this band have a bright future and look forward to new material.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting., 12 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Playland (MP3 Download)
I wanted this to be great and some of the early reviews from critics suggested this would be better than Messenger. Having spent a week listening to it my personal view is that Messenger is better. Dissapointed as you can see the potential. I suggest a return to the collaboration for Marr as this yielded better results eg. Twisted Tenderness by Electronic which was a great album.

I am still a fan of Johnny Marr and believe there is still great potential. Saw Marr at number 6 festival last year and going to see him on this tour. He is great live!


OSMO Hardwax Oil - 150mm Floor Brush
OSMO Hardwax Oil - 150mm Floor Brush
Offered by Kitchener Flooring LTD
Price: £21.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Bit pricey but will help ensure a quality finish, 23 Sep 2014
Purchased to apply oil to a large area of decking and internal wooden flooring. The brush is more expensive than others on the market however it is far superior.

The ability to easily remove the bracket is very useful for cleaning or use in the hand for small areas. There is no shedding of the bristles and the brush maintains its shape. When using the quality of the finish is very good. I previously used a Bosch compressor for the decking but did not achieve the finish you get from the brush.

I would much prefer to be looking at a quality finished surface having spent a bit more and used this brush than to have the constant reminder that I tried to cut corners and now have a substandard finish.

Would definitiely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the conventional screen protector, 23 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having seen a number of reviews for the Orzly tempered glass screen protector and a number of recommendations on the OnePlus forums I decided to buy one.

Delivery: Very good with product well packaged
Fitting: instructions were clear and concise. It took a few attempts to seat the protector accurately on the OnePlus but once aligned the protector fitted perfectly with no residual bubbles under the surface.
Use: The touch sensitivity is unaffected by the protector. There is a slightly higher level of reflection from the glass and although subjective I believe the screen is more prone to displaying finger marks in comparison to the OnePlus screen. Friends who have looked at the screen did not recognise that the protector was fitted.

Overall: Very satisfied so far. Have yet to challenge the resistance of the protection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for camping, 12 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Recently bought two of the largest size to use while camping. I was a litttle sceptical but the reviews looked good.

The first experience of using the towel is a little strange. There is a sense that the towel may not dry you and/or become very wet. We found that the towels seemed to perform better than a conventional ones although not quite as warm.

+ Pack down very small
+ Great for use after a shower
+ Dry quickly after use

Would recommend.


Vango - Folding Gas Stove
Vango - Folding Gas Stove
Offered by Leisure Fayre
Price: £21.14

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and value for money, 12 Sep 2014
This review is from: Vango - Folding Gas Stove (Sports)
Bought this as I wanted to travel compact and light. The stove is manufactured well and when unfolded is quite sturdy. This is improved by having the gas cannister separate from the stove. The valve & burner worked well and the stove packs away easily into the box supplied. Having seen the Vango I have one or two friends going off to buy this for fishing trips.

I would recommend to others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for small drinks!, 12 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
+ Reasonable value for money
+ Stack & Store nicely in case
- Could be a bit bigger

If you are looking for a mug size cup of Tea/Coffee then I would avoid as you would need 2 or more equiv cups.
Great for picnics, kids parties.


Kelty Recluse 2.5 L (Insulated) Air Channel Sleeping Mat - Royal Blue
Kelty Recluse 2.5 L (Insulated) Air Channel Sleeping Mat - Royal Blue
Price: £82.84

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but if I was buying again I would look around for alternatives, 12 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought the Kelty as it was on offer and reviews seemed quite positive. I liked the idea of the higher edges, the insulation and the inbuilt hand pump.

+ The matt packs down very well and is not too heavy. And yes you can get it back in the bag it came out of :-)
- The inflation technique came take some time/effort although does avoid the need to take a seperate pump. When nearing fully inflated air starts to come back through the air inlet valve. On one of the mats this started to occur some time before the mat was properly inflated making almost impossible to fully inflate.

When using to camp out they performed OK and in my opinion are preferable to the self-inflating mat I purchased previously.

Would certainly have been dissapointed if I had paid full price.

If shopping/comparing elsewhere please note there is both an insulated and uninsulated version although they look the same. Check the description carefully.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album and very good Live too!, 12 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Working Out (MP3 Download)
I purchased this having listened to some material on youtube. Some tracks are quite immediate while others are "growers". Also saw them recently at Festival Number 6 where they gave a great performance. The whole family are now into AB.

In terms of the sound as others have said they are somewhat hard to define which is the appeal. I see the comparison others have made to London Grammar but musically the sound is I think less melancholic. Be careful if listening to the first 30Sec of each track as many of the songs change in tempo. I recommend checking them out on Youtube.

Highly recommended.
