5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing soundscapes, 1 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Metallic Spheres (Audio CD)
Having been a big fan of David Gilmour/Pink Floyd and The Orb for many years, this is a dream come true. The Orb's imaginative soundscapes interspersed with Gilmour's distinct guitar (and occasional vocal samples), what more can you ask for? This cd has been on repeat on my cd-player ever since the day I got hold of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent remixes, 11 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent collection of remixes by the Danish production wizard, Anders Trentemøller. His remixes of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game" and The Doors' classic "Break On Through" are the undisputed highlights.

2.0 out of 5 stars A pointless release, 11 Oct. 2010
During the years several Lennon "Best of" compilations have been released, ranging from "Shaved Fish" (compiled by Lennon himself) and the posthumous "The John Lennon Collection" (1982), "Lennon Legend" (1997) and the 2-disc "Working Class Hero" (2005), so what's the point of releasing yet another compilation? Whereas "Lennon Legend" contained 20 tracks, "Power To The People" contains only 15, leaving out "Mother", "Love" "Beautiful Boy", "Nobody Told Me", "Borrowed Time" and "Working Class Hero". Personally, I would go for "Lennon Legend" anytime, which has a better running order and superior sound compared to "The John Lennon Collection" (which contains nothing from "Milk And Honey") or maybe the more comprehensive "Working Class Hero". In my opinion, "Power To The People" is a pointless and non-essential release.

3.0 out of 5 stars A shame..., 3 Aug. 2010
Being a long time Beatles fan, I would have loved to buy/review this product. However, as a European citizen (I'm from Denmark) I'm not able to play a region 1 DVD (USA/Canada) on my DVD player. A shame it hasn't been released as a region 2 dvd as well. Or has it? Once again, the Americans are favoured when it comes to DVD releases.

3.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity, 14 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
I have been a fan of Springsteen since 1980 and have nearly all of his album releases, including the '95 Greatest Hits which has a better track selection that this hastily compiled selection of 'highlights'. Of course, you can't argue with the inclusion of tracks such as "Blinded by the Light", "Born To Run", "Thunder Road", "The River", "Born in the USA" and "Glory Days", but why has albums such as "Nebraska", "Tunnel of Love", "Human Touch", "Lucky Town" and "The Ghost of tom Joad" been completely ignored? This leaves an 18 year gap between the tracks "Dancing in the Dark" and "The Rising". A period during which Springsteen released gems such as "Brilliant Disguise", "Tunnel of Love", "Human Touch", "Streets of Philadelphia" and "The Ghost of Tom Joad", which are missing here (not mentioning the title track a.o. from the brilliant "Nebraska" album from '82). Instead the compiler has chosen to include live versions of 2 songs he gave away and more recent (minor hits) such as "Radio Nowhere" and "Long Walk Home". Arguably, it's difficult to make Springsteen's best songs fit on one cd, but this is a missed opportunity in my opinion. New-comers should instead go for the 2 disc "Essential Springsteen" (preferably the limited edition which has a 3rd disc featuring various well-chosen rarities).

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent live album but..., 16 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Extended Versions: Live (Audio CD)
..but note that it is NOT The Alan Parsons Project (as listed on the cover of the CD) but Alan Parsons featuring various studio musicians. A decent live album, featuring many APP classics, but the lack of Eric Woolfson's voice on "Eye In The Sky" etc. made me deduct one star from my rating. Imo he was the best vocalist in APP and is hard to replace.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice introduction but..., 29 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a nice introduction for the casual fan. Most of the hits are collected here such as "My Sweet Lord", "Isn't It A Pity", "What Is Life", "Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth"), "All Those Years Ago", "Got My Mind Set On You", along with live versions of "Something", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" and "Here Comes The Sun", as well as a couple of hard-to-get film songs. However, in my opinion it would have done Harrison more justice to have released a double cd, as many gems are missing here, such as "Awaiting On You All", "Beware of Darkness" (one of my all-time favourite Harrison songs), "You", "This Guitar", "Crackerbox Palace", "Dark Horse", "This Song", "Faster", "Your Love Is Forever", "Cloud Nine" and "Stuck Inside a Cloud" (to name a few) are missing here. But maybe these have been saved for a forth-coming second volume?

2.0 out of 5 stars A huge dissapointment, 13 Dec. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was buying this re-recording of the old JMJ classic, expecting that it wasn't a note-by-note re-recording without adding anything new at all to the original recording. The difference between the old and the new version of the album almost non-excisting. So if you already own the re-master of the CD, just stick with it. It sounds perfectly okay to me.

NB: My review applies to the CD version only.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not complete, but an okay introduction, 27 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Complete Clapton (Audio CD)
Of course, a 2 cd compilation spanning a 40 year careeer can't be complete so, yes, the title is somewhat misleading (as several other reviewers have pointed out). But it serves fine as an introduction to some of E.C.'s more popular tunes (though several gems and hits are missing).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not perfect, 15 Sept. 2007
This review is from: The Works (Audio CD)
This box set will serve as a good introduction to Chris Rea's work. However, as always with compilations based on the compiler's personal choices, people will find that some of their own favourites are missing. Personally, I miss favourites such as "Love's Strange Ways", "Candles", "Too Much Pride", "And You My Love" and "Looking For A Rainbow", to name a few. Moreover, I find it strange that only one track - a re-recorded version of "Fool" - has been selected from his first (classic) album. Chris Rea has also released numerous great b-sides on singles, EP's etc. during the years - why have none of these been included? But apart from these minor omissions I recommend this album to new fans,
