5.0 out of 5 stars Value For Money!, 24 Nov 2014
This review is from: Candlelight Years (Audio CD)
Fans of black and death metal are going to want to purchase this box-set. It holds 1349's first 4 albums and a live DVD in a nicely packaged jewel case.

The package has a nicely detailed booklet and some very nice art work. You really can't go wrong. It is cheaper than buying the albums separate.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than I could of asked for!, 6 Nov 2014
This box-set despite the price is an absolute bargain for fans of the band. Trying to find the original prints of these albums is just painful, now we have them all in one box.

The sound quality of the records is excellent. They sound a lot nicer than the CD copies I own and sound better than the original LP's I grew up with. The seven records are held in the standard sleeve with a white inner sleeve. The outer box is a nice heavy sturdy box that will provide some fine protection for the records contained inside.

This is an excellent way to collect all seven albums without spending too much on the original prints. I'm not complaining in any way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aquostic Rocks!, 20 Oct 2014
I'd never thought I'd see the day when Status Quo release an acoustic album. Aquostic is just over an hour long and does not really have any dud tracks on it.

Songs like "Paper Plane", "Rain" and "Reason For Living" all sound fantastic. With that being said the production is very much top quality. They have managed to keep the top production from Bula Quo which is a good thing. Crystal clear with a lot of oomph.

Naturally "Die Hard" fans will complain about this but who cares. It's a fun laid back album that is great to relax to.

2.0 out of 5 stars Quality control anyone?, 30 Sep 2014
This review is from: Art Official Age (Audio CD)
Prince is a musical master, a brilliant musician that could give any one a run for their money. Unfortunately that does not mean every album he creates is a good. Sadly this album is 50 minutes of boring, dull R&B ballads. No funk, no pop... just boring ballads.

If that fact was not bad enough, the tacky computerised sound effects that cover the album is embarrassing to hear. A man with his expertise should not be resorting to such tacky, poorly made music.

Not even the version of FUNKNROLL could be saved from this madness. It has absolutely nothing funk about it. It's just a chopped up, computer generated pile of the original.

In my honest opinion, this is one of Prince's worst albums to date. There is nothing redeeming about it what so ever. Nothing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic live album!, 29 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live At Wembley Arena (Audio CD)
Live at Wembley Arena has been years in waiting. It was well worth the wait let me tell you that.

The album contains a full length concert, 25 tracks in total and features most of the bands well known tracks for the time. The production might be a bit thin but it does not detract from the fact the band put on a fantastic performance. Vocal harmonies are perfect, bass and drums are seriously solid and there is also some pretty nice guitar work for the six-string lovers.

Over all I would say this is a must have for ABBA fans. It shows that even their hard to replicate sound can be done live in concert and that itself is quite impressive and worth hearing.

(If you edge more to rock music you might want to check out this version of "Eagle" as it has some seriously stunning guitar work.)

4.0 out of 5 stars It's about FUNKIN time!, 29 Sep 2014
This review is from: Plectrumelectrum (Audio CD)
Prince finally released some new music and it's about damn time!

Plectrumelectrum is a funk rock album made to show off his new backing band 3RDEYEGIRL. They are a great band at that with a very distinct sound.

The album has a good 25 minutes of some seriously rocking tracks. Unfortunately the album drags a bit as Prince goes into some modern R&B rubbish. The same usual stuff that has plagued his material for 20 years now. Thankfully the funk material takes up majority of the album and really stands out. A little bit of quality control could of helped this album big time otherwise its well worth having for Prince and Funk fans alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Band Is On A Roll..., 9 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
so it is a shame that Dan has had to leave the band during their second peak. The album is full of energy, the kind that would make a lot of younger bands blush. The music is a fine mix between ear numbing heaviness and a few softer songs. If you're going to go out, might as well go out on top.

A fantastic album and a wonderful send off to the bands original frontman.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old School Death Metal!, 6 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Helmengraa (Audio CD)
I am not a fan of that growling American rubbish so to find a cd which has that old school Europian Death Metal sound was a very pleasant surprise. The sound would be familiar to any fans of Immortal, Dimmu Borgir and the other bands of the genre. It's simple, not too many blast beats (thank god) and very well produced.

For a fiver, it is an album well worth having for fans of real death metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic of the old days..., 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is yet another re-release of Resident Evil 4. This one comes in what is an impressively flimsy case and activates on Steam. Though there will be the anti-drm brigade complaining about that, it has it's advantages. The game is frequently getting patched up by a group of developers you can communicate with in the game forum.

It controls quite well with the keyboard and loots very nice and sharp. There is no lack of content so this game should keep you busy for a while.

If you like Resident Evil or weird horror games in general then I would highly recommend this. One of the best games made in the "Old Generation".

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Solid Record!, 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Empire of the Undead (Audio CD)
If there is one thing you can say about Gamma Ray it's that they have a knack for being reliable. They never release (or at least what I would consider) bad music.

This album is not going to set the world on fire but it is a good effort. The songs are quite catchy, have great solos and catchy riffs. There are a few stand out tracks "Hellbent" "Palerider" and "Empire of the Undead". They're old school heavy metal at it's finest, pure balls to the wall!

Any heavy metal fan would do good to pick this up.

(Hopefully they will release a special "Wig" edition so we can have the same charming head warmer that is currently being used by Kai Hansen. :P )
