My mother bought this for weekly hairdresser/washing.
The grips seem to work on the taps:- so far no leaks, also no leakage from the shower head or the connector pipe joints, (much, much better than the one she's been using for the past few years), add the excellent price of this product, and so far I would say this is one of the best basin spray adapters I have seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very clever techniques, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book isn't a huge volume (260 pages), but the techniques, (or recipes as the author likes to call them), for creating effects in Photoshop are absolutely ingenious. Within the first 2 or 3 chapters are examples of how to do things in a way that will save lots of file memory, while at the same time throwing up a topic you may have to cross-reference in another book to find out what that specific topic is; (i.e. Alpha Channels).

If you are fairly used to the basics of Photoshop and want to learn pro-techniques, (sometimes they're just exceptionally clever common sense tricks found by Pro's), you can revisit them again and again within this book, to get really involved with the 'recipes' in your own workflow. Would also benefit advanced users with the tips & tricks sections from industry & Adobe experts, as well as refreshing some ideas you may already know.

I regard this as one of the best small volumes to explain Photoshop techniques I've bought so far…..Excellent!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ambient relaxation, 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Secret Garden (MP3 Download)
This CD is more in the 'Ambient' field than 'New Age' in my opinion, although they're almost the same in many respects.

Personally, I like it, although the birdsong could be slightly louder in the mix in places. The music is very soothing synthesised melodic Guitar/Piano sounds, combined intermittently with birdsong, insect and water sounds for the effect of a summer garden.

The music overall sounds in the vein of Vangelis and Brian Eno, but not enough to be a blatant rip off of theses artists, more like that style of composition and playing to weave the musical atmosphere pleasingly against a garden backdrop. That's why I would put this as Ambient:- as it is more like a musical piece than atmospheric or nature noises intersected with appropriate sounding instruments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Remastered, 14 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Foxtrot (MP3 Download)
This is a good attempt at remastering a 1971 masterpiece.

All the tracks benefit from enhanced (for the better), vocals & drums, but through all the tracks the mix is well balanced.

My favourites are Horizons, & the 'HUGE' Supper's Ready. When you first listen to this version of Supper's Ready it doesn't sound as compressed & cluttered as the previous versions, but some parts don't have quite the same impact because of this:- listen to it again and you start to hear that all the parts are still there; just lying cleverly in the whole mix, not popping out because of some compressor / limiter/ reverb treatment that was the rule in 1971 to make it 'pop' on vinyl, listen again & it gets even better, (and you'll hear other parts subdued by the old mixing techniques brought more to the fore because of the removal of the above effects / treatments).
I have heard the vinyl version, a 90's Japanese Remaster & this 2008 Remaster and have expectations as to 'how it should go', (also with it being an eccentric piece with many changes, the listener follows along & tends to get involved).

I regard this version as a very good remaster that a listener will hear more of how it probably sounded in the studio......Well worth a listen:- would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack collection, 6 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for the Evanescence remix, but quite a lot of the other remixes are very good too, as are tunes recorded with guest singers and a producer. It's a shame a lot are not actually in the film, but they stand up alone as a good listen individually, and it works well as an album of heavy/dark rock musicians collected for a soundtrack theme.

The Renholder remixes are along the lines of Skrillex/Dubstep but don't sound like blatent rip-offs of that genre, instead they have been skillfully adapted into the chosen tune. I really like most of tunes on this album, and think they would appeal to people who like dark, modern rock, and the advances and application of big studio/synthetic sound production techniques.

Well worth a listen!!

My mom bought these instead of Uggs - the heel's better. They are warm flexible sheepskin - so actual size fits.
