The Human Contradiction

4.0 out of 5 stars A triumph, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Human Contradiction (Audio CD)
This album is particulary rousing and the packaging is gorgeous. Another reason to see why Delain rule. It's a good bonus to get some live songs too, because the band always reacts to the audience

After hearing Gus G in Firewind, I was eager to check his solo-debut out. I've only played it once, but I liked it first time. More guitar solos would be good and less vocal work

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice package, 9 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this album on the strength of liking other W.T. albums, and the fact that it also had a 100 page booklet included. A nice black-and-white production on glossy paper. Album isn't as good as previous CD's, but I've only listened to it once, so I hope it'll grow on me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great concert footage, 9 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brought this for a friend who's a big Metallica fan. I watched it with her last week, not knowing what it would be quite like, and was surprise that there was so much concert footage on it, The back-story efficiently told and well acted, but the music shone through for a relatively new fan of Metallica's music as well

4.0 out of 5 stars The Second Helloween, 16 Feb 2013

This review is from: Straight Out Of Hell (Audio CD)
This album is very different to their "Best of" 25th Anniversary album. If you're of a nervous disposition, steer clear of Track 10.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epuc-entertainment, 16 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having already brought Epica's "Requiem For The Indifferent" LP & "Design Your Universe" (not from Amazon), I knew very well the quality of songwomanship. This CD equally doesn't disappoint. The Classical section gives a giddying range of emotions, anf the Rock section is so sonically-cool. Simone is ace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Project PRJ-Essential Turntable, 4 July 2011
I've been wanting a new turntable for the last three months, and after having read reviews, I decided on a Kenwood turntable. When I decided to purchase, I though I would have one last look. This is when I saw the Project. It looked very state of-the-art, and as I knew I'd have it for some time, I thought spending the extra (150 instead of 83) would be well worth it, despite the fiddly set-up that other reviewers had. In the end putting the white band on took about 15 minutes. It helps to keep the cardboard in place otherwise the platter spins around. Balancing the stylus and tone arm also was fairly straight-forward. With my dad's help I hooked it up my amp (Onkyo A-V5L) and speakers (Q Acoustics 2010). I've now had it about 5 weeks, and I must say I'm very happy with the sound. Build quality is excellent. You do have to be careful not no be too heavy handed on either side of the turntables' base(or it rocks/tilts - if that makes sense?). The other thing to be careful with is the tone-arm. After you've moved the security (for travel purpose) lock, the mooring has to be set just right or the tone-arm will not sink properly onto the vinyl. I would highly reccommend this turntable, but just be aware of the few quirks of set-up it has.
