5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and brutal, 25 April 2013
This review is from: Tape Deck Heart (Audio CD)
Tape Deck Heart is different to Frank's previous albums, but in a good way. The influences of Rich Costley (Producer) are clear, never have Frank & The Sleeping Souls sounded so good. You can tell they spent 30 days paying attention to every minute detail. The production on Broken Piano is incredible.

Four Simple Words is arguably Franks greatest song in terms of live show fun. The album version is no let down, from the quiet opening to crashing drums and guitar solos, it is one of the catchiest songs he has ever written.

What this album has is strength in depth. It is crammed from start to finish with brilliant songs - some fun, some brutally honest - and only really takes a breather for the quieter solo song Anymore. This quality continues in the bonus deluxe tracks (which are definitely worth paying the extra for) Cowboy Chords is stunning, and Time Machine see's Frank disappear off into a more Weezer-esque direction, but he comes out the other side with one of the funnest lyrics ever: "I'm a gonna build myself a time machine, on particle physics and the power of steam"

This lyric perfectly en-captures what is by far the best thing about this album - the meaning and (sometimes) fun Frank has put into the lyrics. Go and listen to The Way I Tend To Be, Four Simple Words and Broken Piano and you will see the brilliance of Tape Deck Heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does everything it should do, 6 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a luggage scale it does everything it should. It is easy to attach to luggage to weigh, and is easy to hold and lift. A nice touch is that when the weight has settled, it will beep and freeze the screen. This enables you to put the bag down and check the weight. And have you ever seen such a stylishly designed luggage scale? Wow.

This is undeniably a fantastic piece of technology. The screen is piercingly sharp, the speed is fast and it plays music (what its meant to do) fantastically. The range of apps and ease of access to more media blows all the competition out of the water. While the 64GB model does have the cheapest £ per GB, it is still fantastically expensive - which is my only criticism. It is very easy to accumulate 32GB+ of music, videos, apps and photos so for me 64GB was a necessity - why buy something which is too small before you even get it? So for the reason that there is a large premium on the 64GB model, it can only be 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, stylish, solid, 6 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case perfectly fits the iPod touch 4the gen. The case itself looks very stylish and sits equally perfectly in your hand. The combination of a solid plastic outer shell, and a soft rubber inside fills you with the confidence that if dropped, it would absorb the shock. The only tiny criticism would be that the plastic does quickly gain lots of miniscule scratches, but if you buy the white one, they are nearly impossible to see. Best case I have found so far, worth the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars It could be so good, 7 July 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
I really really enjoyed Test Drive Unlimited, and the prospect of a new improved version, with new islands, new cars, weather and time sounded brilliant. But Eden have massively failed unfortunately. I really wanted to like this game, but why should the easiest way of making money in a racing game be in a Casino? Unlike the original there is no easy money, and with the extortionate prices of some cars, this has led thousands to cheat. This has kind of ruined the multiplayer side as the leaderboards all have people completing the course in 1 second... Thats before you mention the ridiculously hard driving schools!

It could be brilliant, but as it stands, it just frustrates me.

As calculators go, it gave me peace of mind for my AS exam, as it definitely doesnt break any rules, in the way that the Casio FX-991ES Calculator is a bit of a grey area, some say it is allowed some say it isn't. Anyway this does anything you need it to for AS, and gives answers in a wide range of forms, which makes simplifying a lot easier! Good calculator.

As said above, it is a cheap screen protector that perfectly fits my 3rd Gen iPod Touch, and as the product quotes, it protects the screen perfectly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 11 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fits the phone well-ish, isnt very tight, so easy to remove which could be seen as a postitive. However the silicon is quite thick so it makes the Defy a very thick device to hold. Best case I have found though, nice colour range as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Day 8!, 7 Jun. 2011
This review is from: 24 - Season 8 [DVD] (DVD)
It is rare that a TV show genuinely leaves you amazed and makes the adrenalin really rush. Some of the hours in this are genuinely absorbing, it would be fair to say that if you sit down to watch one episode, you WILL end up watching more, it's that good. Day 8 is arguably the best, so good it leaves just one question; how did people who watched this on TV week by week cope?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super mid range smartphone, 6 Jun. 2011
After being a bit apprehensive in buying a Defy after reading some reviews, I took the plunge. Fundamentally I think it's brilliant. It answers calls, sends texts, internet and above all else is responsive so won't drive you nuts (which trust me after my old phone is brilliant!)! The build really does feel indestructible and thanks to the waterproofness it really does give you that added peace of mind when walking in light drizzle/rain, you can just leave it be. If there are parts of it you don't like: Home Screen, Message apps, they can be replaced on the market, want the HTC look? That can be found too. Really this a super mid range smartphone.
