This review is from: Fire Girl (Demo) (MP3 Download)
Iggy and Bowie record a basic demo for Blah Blah Blah.
It is great quality and was probably mixed over but this still retains great basic Beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Football/History Book with all the drama of a TV mini series., 20 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having a love of both Sports Biographies and History thought I would give this a whirl especially as the man is also a Brighton Legend. What a fantastic book!!
FOOTBALL was covered with detail to keep the "stato." happy while the Social History and smell of the terraces also jumped off the page.
THE SPANISH CIVIL WAR is an area where I have read a number of dedicated books. This book managed to break down its key elements to inform and support this heartrending and miraculous (the death rate in this war was huge) story without slowing it down. Again the story was a fantastic social History.
I nearly gave it only four stars because John Shepherd is wearing a Millwall strip on the cover! However take heart Brighton supporters as an old pot of tippex is all that is needed to add the stripes needed to gain the full five stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great music ruined by record company., 25 Nov 2011
Already have nearly every track. But as taking daughter to O2 got for nice packaging and ease of use. She knows many songs but not all.
Unfortunately SONY are a DISGRACE.
Digital remastering in this case means try to make it sound good on a tiny old ipod docking station. (the reason bands like Coldplay are popular).
To compress to mp3 quality on CD all the sound is at the same volume. Every subtlety in drum beat, voice, volume of guitar, lost for ever! No layers, craft,art or build in the music. The parts when you want to Pogo are set at the same volume as the quietest part of a ballad. If you still have a decent music system with nice stereo speakers (or even a cd walkman) avoid like the plague! I am going to burn off original CDs on to 2 CDRs (for our own use)and place these in the packaging.
The 2 CDs are now beer mats. I am sure the Manics were sold an earlier listen of remastering before some idiot compressed it all. (I expect DVD has same sound)
Limited Q Album only thing really worth having from this car crash.

Oh! and see fans at O2.
