5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait, 16 May 2012
This review is from: Isn't Anything (Audio CD)
The sound quality is waaaaay better then the original release. It sounds less shrill, more warm, and has more depth and clarity. The original sounds thin in comparison.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to their best...., 15 April 2009
This review is from: Dark Days/Light Years (Audio CD)
...which isn't to suggest that their previous albums since they left Creation were substandard. No way. But Dark Days/Light Years is somehow.... really fresh, wonderfully surprising yet familiar! Its hard to explain, but since Guerilla SFA albums have always impressed in different ways yet somehow have lacked a certain capacity to give you a WFT?!?! moment.

Dark Days has the expansive, elaborate production that Love Kraft did, with the odd nod to Hey Venus's Glam direction, with the gleeful silliness of Guerilla. I think SFA have stopped trying to be great songsmiths (not Microsoft Songsmith!), and instead let themselves go.

Its got a song about Trams! With German Kraftwerkesque rapping! What more do you want!??!

Oooh, if you liked Animal Collectives current long player, this could be right up your cul-de-sac.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really nice, personable, shadowy album, 10 Nov 2008
This review is from: The Debut Album (Audio CD)
I bought this a while after I saw John and Jehn support Cornershop at the Amersham Arms, South East London. I was really impressed by them- they had a really nice stage presence, in a kind of White Stripes way. Shy, but involved all the same.

The debut album is one of the best things I've heard all year- reminiscent of Velvet Underground and Nico, with an angular, ethereal base to it. Its a moody, at times psychedelic album record. Romantic, it a post-coital kinda way.

I wish the album was longer and not split over 2 CDs though. If this was the 80's, you'd copy this onto 1 side of a C90 easily, and you'd still have to fill the end up with some Doors, or early Pink Floyd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome., 28 Oct 2007
For 20 you really cannot go wrong with the Porta Pro's. The bass really is very impressive, and there is alot of detail and warmth. They sound nicer then the Sennheiser PX-100 that seem very popular. Their looks might not be to everyone's tastes, but I happen to like them.

The only con's are that the because of its 80's design, the construction is fairly basic, and the head band catches your hair. They're not a very sophisticated design compared to the equivalent Sennheisers or Sony's. And their open design means everyone on the bus can hear your tinny music.

But for 20, you cant fault them.
