5.0 out of 5 stars Extra _ Ordinary, 28 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rival Dealer EP (Audio CD)
This is Extra Extra ordinary in the true sense of the words. I'm long time electronic music writer and producer also play Classical Piano and Violin. What this does artist produces musical convention - I know its only my humble opinion but he realy is something special. He raises the bar everytime. I just wonder where he will go next.

2.0 out of 5 stars very poor, 7 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
bought this for sampling from outdoors and line in from high quality cd and turntable to use in a 24 bit DAW. Tried using it with built in mic which is very poor quality. tried using it with my high quality dynamic peavy mic which is better but almost impossible to get a decent level , Using line in the recordings are either too quiet or distort. The controls on the side are tiny and hard to use - the screen is minute and very difficult to see. i have sued lots of Yamaha products over the years and have always rated them very highly - I am returning this it is very very poor.

1.0 out of 5 stars this represents........................., 3 Dec. 2009
This review is from: I Dreamed a Dream (Audio CD)
AAAAGRHHHHH it made me give it a star i didn't want to give it anything but i had no choice, NO CHOICE, this piece of plastic is symbolic of everything that is wrong with society, britains got talent x factor, bile, sick, Ive no doubt that Susan Boyle is a lovely woman but this is just so wrong AND so many have you have fallen for it. There is so much music worth listening too why do you do it people WHY?

4.0 out of 5 stars remember slim shady is an alter ego, 17 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Relapse (Audio CD)
this a good CD. People get very irrate about Marshal Mathers. remember alot of the lyrics are spat out by MM's alter ego - Slim Shady - this is not a real person but an alter ego of his - this is very clever stuff. Look into Carl Jung's ideas about shadow (shady) personalities to understand more about where Marshall Mathers is coming from before criticising this outright.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the hype, 26 Jan. 2009
This review is from: For Emma Forever Ago (Audio CD)
how and why does such a poor record acieve such notoriety. I listened to this because of the Hype wish i listened to public enemy - they said don't believe the hype and surely this has never been truer than when applied to this self indulgent whiny piece of adolescent drivel, poor me ive split up with my girlfriend. I have nothing against Mr. Vernon Im sure he's very nice. But i am fed up with music that achieves this sort of reputation because of exteranal factors ie. he split up/he went to a cabin/he recorded it on a lap top whilst eating beef whilst outside the cabin wolves prowled - big deal its still rubbish. Please try to listen before you buy.
