5.0 out of 5 stars Best song on the album., 11 Mar 2014

This review is from: Higher (MP3 Download)
I love this song. Asgeir reaches some pretty high notes on this one!

It's a very chilled out and laid back song - easy listening. Download it now

4.0 out of 5 stars It grows on you..., 11 Mar 2014

This review is from: In the Silence (MP3 Download)
This title track of the album takes a few listens, but will eventually grow on you.

I would recommend this song, 'Higher' and 'Kings and Crosses' to download, but the whole album is good. It's quite laid back, with a bit of electronics and brass band stuff thrown in for good measure. Asgeir has quite a high voice, but nice and with a distinct accent, which isn't unpleasant. A very relaxing album, including this song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money!, 12 Aug 2013

Much better value for money than buying them as individual series. Unfortunately didn't discover this until we had already bought Series 1 and 2 seperately. Quite a big box, but considering the number of doscs in it, not surprising. A good buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like it was recorded in a public toilet, 5 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jake Bugg (Audio CD)
Sounds very echoey, obviously intentional, but not to my taste. Music mediocre. Like 'broken', but the rest of the album a waste of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great song, but let down by the sound quality, 6 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Once I Was (MP3 Download)
I heard this song in the film Coming Home and loved it, but found it very hard to track down which album it was from. Luckily I found it as a download single, so saved myself the effort.

I haven't heard anything else by Tim Buckley, so can only judge this song in isolation, but it has a wistful, folky sound to it - very much of its time, very laid back and relaxing, but also haunting at the same time.

I would recommend the song, but if I could get hold of a better recording of it I would. The sound levels seems to dip down halfway through the song, as though you have turned the volume down and there is a constant (but faint) background hiss throughout the track.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic film, shame about the extras, 6 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic film, with a great story line and starring the recently departed Gore Vidal, may he rest in peace.

I won't bore you with the story line, as other reviewers have already gone into this in detail.

If you are buying this DVD for the deleted scenes, please don't bother. The quality of the film in these outtakes is shockingly bad - very blurry. There are also not many deleted scenes, the few there are are not very long and they also add nothing to the understanding of the film itself. We are not talking Avatar collector's edition deleted scenes here.

I would recommend buying the bog standard edition rather than this one - or something that has been digitally enhanced in some way.

The film itself is fantastic and the only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 was because of the rubbish 'extras'.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality recordings - not recommended, 23 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you like the more traditional folk music and poorly recorded versions of it, then this album is probably for you.

Not convinced myself and even the artists that I did like, had their lesser known songs on here, or poor live versions of their more well known songs.

I suppose you get what you pay for sometimes :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book - a must read, 23 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant book about the after effects of war on the injured.

No medical or military experience needed to enjoy this book, as the writing style is very flowing and easy to read.

The horrific injuries suffered by the author and the other men on his ward makes you wonder how anyone can survive such horrors and come out the other side of it alive, let alone with such a good sense of humour.

The men had nicknames for everyone, including Slim for a guy run over by a tank - I think you get the drift about the kind of gallows humour these guys had.

This book is very graphic in it's detailing of dressing changes of some very nasty injuries, so not for the fainthearted, but it has a lot of lighter moments too and makes you laugh in many places.

I couldn't put it down and read it cover to cover in 2 days. Well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting, 19 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Born to Die (Audio CD)
What a great album. Really something different to everything else around at the minute. Every song is good and Lana del Ray's haunting vocals are top class on all of them. Hard to put into a certain category of music, so I guess it just belongs in one all of it's own.

I would strongly recommend buying this.
