5.0 out of 5 stars Make sure you try this before spending £75 +VAT !!!, 5 April 2011
My kitchen sink was blocked and I tried 4 or 5 kitchen unblockers from the supermarket. But for weeks I couldn't get rid of the blockage...
I contacted a company to unblock my sink but the price I got quoted everywhere (£75 + VAT) seemed to me like a total rip off. So I googled something like "how to unblock sink" and there was a link to this wastepipe blast un-blocker sold on amazon. I couldn't believe a product that cheap (same price as a kitchen unblocker at the supermarket) could do the job, but I thought like "let's try this before spending £90...", and I'm so glad I gave it a go! OK I spent close to half an hour to succesfully unblock the pipe but no product couldn't be simpler to use and it just saved me spending close to £85. What a great buy!!! Thanks!

1.0 out of 5 stars No KILLER Album, 24 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Day & Age (Audio CD)
I bought this one on the strengh of their first 2 studio albums as well as the b-sides one, with eyes (or ears?) closed. Well... The album kicks off with the average opener "losing touch". Then comes the 1st single, "Human", a good song, but not as good as the singles from the previous albums. Then it all goes downhill. Track 3 "Spaceman" - the new single - is quite simply awful. Things get even worse with the 4th track... Tracks 5 to 8 are a total bore. Surprise : track 9 is fine. So is track 10, but still far as good as any previous song they released in the past. On this album, the punchy guitar has gone, they sound cheesy, cheap, poppy, uninspired. 2 songs are disco (un)inspired. And this comes from an 80's fan! I'm going to sell the concert ticket I bought before I got a chance (if I can call that chance) to hear this album. There is hardly any killer track here. I always give an album at least 3 listens when I'm not too sure about it. This one is not even getting a second chance and is already on sale. There is absolutely no chance such a bad album grows on me!...

2.0 out of 5 stars Treat or trick?, 12 Feb. 2008
Thriller truly is one of the greatest gems in the history of funky/dance music. The figures speak for themselves: 104 million copies sold since its 1982 release, making "Thriller" the biggest selling album of all times! So, what about the additional audio material found on this Deluxe edition? We get one (good) unreleased song: "For All Time", and one (great) extended version of "Billy Jean". But things go terribly wrong when it comes to the addition of the 2008 versions of 4 classic tracks. Not only are these rap/urban 2008 duet versions not in harmony whatsoever with the funky style of the originals, but the so-called "duets" are not genuine since those are made of M.J's 1982 vintage vocals and other artists' vocals recorded in 2008! Not to mention that M.J. hasn't performed any new material on this Deluxe edition! You would think you're in for a treat, but you're definitely in for a trick!
A few suggestions for the 30th Anniversary edition: add some of the 2001 Thriller Special Edition bonuses such as "Someone In The Dark", the "Billy Jean" home demo, and "Carousel", keep "For All Time" and the "Billy Jean" long version from the 25th anniversary edition, add the following never released on CD extended versions: "Wanna be startin' somethin'", "Human Nature" "PYT" (Pretty Young Thing), and why not "Say Say Say", as well as "Somebody's Watching Me" from the 1983-1984 era? Then complete the set with more demos, live versions of the Thriller songs, unreleased tracks, alternate versions and original mixes from the Thriller studio sessions and you get the Deluxe edition we should have been getting this time around!
What a Deluxe edition should do is please the audience who owns the original album. This edition is trying too hard to appeal to new audiences and this is clearly a bad choice! I'll stick to my 2001 Special edition for now!
