This review is from: Born Under Saturn (Audio CD)
Superb follow up to the debut. An evolving sound. Saw them live a few nights ago and they were as good as it gets. Can't wait for the third album...

A really great screen. Getting used to the idea of not having a CD drive. Windows 8 taking some getting used to as well. Not sure the TV function really adds much to the package.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounding very good indeed. As for the lyrics, 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A new Morrissey album. An oasis. Most interesting album since You are the Quarry, I think. The music is strong. The voice tonally sublime. Sounding very good indeed. As for the lyrics, well, what can you say. Except for, will we please remember that poetry explores all of life, the good and the bad, the right and the wrong. Daring to write about it, does make you it. When you write "I" it needn't mean you. The best £9.99 I've spent in a long while.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thousand miles away from here, 8 Oct. 2010
Welcome back Red Box.

Absolutely beautiful vocals and music.

Its been a long time but you have always been with me and to have you back is a treat, a joy, a pleasure. Thanks.

Now I know you were not in a hurry with this album, but please don't make us wait another 20 years. But if you do it will be worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is this the best album of 2010?, 11 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Nobody's Daughter (Audio CD)
Well, confessions first. I am generally an indie rock / alternative kind of person. Best bands ever? Radiohead? REM? The Smiths? Joy Division? I expect you get the picture. I loved Nirvanna, althogh came to appreciate them more after they were no more. Why do people do that? Cobain was a poet and genius. So was Curtis.

But what is this? Courtney Love. Hole. I had ignored this until Love's appearance on Jools Holland's "later" about six weeks ago.

I don't like "Skinny Little Bitch" and one other track on this album (can you guess?) but the rest is littered with songs that rank somewhere between good and tremendous. "Honey" is one of the most beautiful lamenting rock songs ever written - listen to those two chord changes ("Hope that...") and be inspired. "Nobody's Daughter" and "Pacific Highway" ("miles and miles of regret") are stand out. "Samantha" is iconic, although may divide opinion. "Someone else's life" and "for once in your life" complete the best songs.

Thus far, this is the best of 2010.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply stunning, 27 Oct. 2009
It is hard to describe this. I thought I had witnessed REM come and go, from the fresh Murmur to the turbo charged Accelerate via some of the best albums ever recorded. And then this, the concert in my mind that I always wanted to hear. It is simply stunning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic album, 20 Jun. 2009
This review is from: The Circle & The Square (Audio CD)
The classic 1980s album now available on CD. Relatively overlooked at the time, Red Box were a great band and so much more than their couple of top 10 hits suggested. A great CD for the collection.
