5.0 out of 5 stars feels good, 3 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This top makes you feel good. Even though it is on the tight side it still gives an air of elegance and makes the best of your figure. I am a small size 14 but it was figure hugging rather than loose. Love it. The material is lovely and soft too and feel very comfortable

4.0 out of 5 stars Hardcore Will Never Die, And Neither Will Mogwai, 16 Feb 2011
This is, to sum it up to it's fullest, a Mogwai album. Listen to it for even the shortest time and you'll recognize the great sound of the band. But there's something else in there. Just because it's a Mogwai album doesn't mean it's a replica of albums of old. THere are subtle tweaks to the system here, and for the most part, they work brilliantly. The almost arcade-like feel to "Mexican Grand Prix" is both interesting and exciting. In a similiar vein, "George Square Thatcher Death Party" (Possibly the best song title of all time?) is another high powered song. At the other end of the spectrum, the opener "White Noise" is a floaty yet expansive song that opens the album perfectly. Incidentally, he production overall is excellent, with subtle touches like the quiet speaking in the former, or the robotic singing in the aforementioned "Mexican Grand Prix".

But really, the best moments here are when Mogwai really bring out the "Mogwai" feel. The finale, "You're Lionel Richie" is a fantastic 8 minutes sweep in the band's truest fashion, showing that even when they stick to their guns the result is just as good, if not better. The first single of Hardcore is "Rano Pano", another standout here. Capitalizing on one key riff and expanding it to a huge blast of sound near the end, it's one of the most exciting songs here.

However, it's not a complete classic. I mean, for the most part the songs are very good, but there's just something slightly missing. Despite some new changes, there's not really much innovation here. Like I said at the beginning, it is, despite everything, still a Mogwai album. And for me, that's a brilliant thing and for most people reading this, it'll be brilliant for them too. But at the same time, it's still not a great thing to hear the first half minute of a song and be able to guess where it's going. It's certainly not a big point and it's not really going to slow your enjoyment of what is, really, a great album. Just bear in mind that it's still not quite a Young Team.

One more thing! Not sure why I forgot to mention this earlier, but the extra disc is absoltuely worth it. The extra song, the 23 minutes long epic "Music For a Forgotten Future", is a beautiful sprawl with strings and great movements. All I can say is that the movie it was originally meant for must have sounded great!

But yes, Hardcore will Never Die, But You Will comes highly recommended for fans of the band, and for newcomers there's lots here to bring you into the band!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's House Music. What Else Do You Expect?, 12 May 2009
This review is from: House (Audio CD)
As the title tells you, this is a brilliant selection of music. It's the sort that you just lie down and relax whilst listening to. There's some great stuff, from the fantastic Walter Reed to You Can't Always Get What You Want, a song which is sung by Hugh Laurie (who is in the band, aptly named Band From T.V. and also contains actors from Heroes and the actor of Chase) and others.

My only problems are that the music won't appealt to everyone and there were a few other songs that have been played on House that I wouldld've preferred to listen to.

But if you like House, you'll love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, but not fantastic, 3 May 2009
Firstly, despite criticism that I'm about to give, the book is (well, it will be) essential to the Demonata series and I'm sure you'll need to read it to understand the next and final book (Hell's Heroes) in the series. So fore that reason, buy this book and read it. It may not be the best but it should be necessary.

So, this book starts with basically a very vague summary of book six in the series, but from Kernel's view. This is an excellent part of the book. Book 8 also had this, but from Bec's voew. It's very clever how the same speech is used throughout all of the books.

Then the book starts to get even better. Although some people might complain the middle of the book as "boring" but I like the boring bits apparently. It explains a lot (and I don't mean that lightly) about the Kah-Gash and the ever-questined chess board. Plus loads of other stuff. There are a few demons battles, but his is mainly just talking and exploring about very well descripted places.

It's near the end of the book, that it get annoying. The senseless battles really bring down the tone and class of the book. It's not needed. After enjoying the rest of the book thoroughly it was brought to a rather rubbish ending. Admittedly, it does leave the space open for quesries and there's loads of scope for discussions. I'm expecting lot's of heated debates with my freinds about what's going to happen in the final book.

But that doesn't make it annby better really. It's really annoying to have such a bad ending. It leaves a bitter taste in your mouth.

But still, the rest of the book is very good, and that makes it worth a purchase. Plus what I said formerly.

So buy it, and pray that the final book is up to standards!
