4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not their best, 29 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Presente (Audio CD)
This album is much more a mix of styles than earlier albums. Fans of classic tango may be turned off as the tracks are not really dance-friendly. As a listening album, however, it is superb. It fails to get 5 stars from me because of its difficulty as a dance album but as Nuevo tango it is great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good approach ot the whole politics of nutrition, 23 Feb 2013

Still reading but to date is provocative in challanging the whole food industry and the often covert involvement of food companies in promoting certain types of diet.

Not the most glamerous in appearance but is quite functional and adequate for my son's new Canon. Would be happy to buy again.

On second use the neoprene surrounding the shoulder strap began to tear. The zip also broke within days. Poor quality. Would not recommend or buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Discover an accidental gem, 7 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Masterworks (Audio CD)
Accidentally heard the CGT and bought this album 'on spec'. Certainly not disappointed. Relaxing guitar interpretations of a variety of classics both, old and new. I can see many car journeys being accommpanied by this album. The synthesis of three guitars with occasional guests combines to provide the impression of listening to a single instrument.

5.0 out of 5 stars Medieval history - but not as you know it!, 24 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was attracted to this book on the basis of a recent TV programme outlining the background to the oral recording and later writing of these tales. For anyone with even a vague interest this book is an ideal introduction to the sagas with a detailed academic introduction outlining the way they came to be recorded and also providing a glossery explaining terminology used in the text. The reader is introduced to timeless local disagreements and the early development of Iceland. In addition many of the sagas included give an indication of the frequent and arduous journeys taken between various parts of the territories under Viking control over a millenium ago. Also included are two of the Vinland sagas covering the discovery and exploration of North America some 400-500 years before Columbus. The book is a rewarding read and an introduction to an aspect of greater European exploration and development which is often overlooked. It would be excellent value at a multiple of the cost.
