The Ultimate 80's Album: 100 Huge Number Ones
The Ultimate 80's Album: 100 Huge Number Ones
Price: 7.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Under no circumstances buy this album, 24 Dec 2013
You maybe hosting a party, or maybe you are a bit tipsy and want to listen to your favourite songs from the 80s. You have scoured iTunes and Amazon looking for the one with the most classic 80s tunes. You have come across this and think, 'hey, this is all killer, and no filler, what a bargain!' This is where I come in and say STOP! As you listen to the first song, you might think that was a weird version, maybe the mp3 is funny. You listen to the next one, and think maybe you have drunk too much..but before long you realise that this is some awful cover version album. I have farted more accurate versions of Funky Town. The music sounds like a Casio Keyboard on demonstration mode.

DO NOT BUY

4.0 out of 5 stars Warmth, 14 Aug 2013
This review is from: Count Arthur Strong [DVD] (DVD)
It is very easy to bash nostalgic forms of comedy, because we only get excited by the new and the brave. I actually went into watching Count Arthur Strong wanting to hate it, because it seemed old hat. By the second episode I loved it. It has a warmth missing from the modern trend of brutally realistic, horribly cynical comedy. Oh, and watch episode 5 of it set in a hospital. The variety in the types of jokes, the call backs, everything is meticulous. And the finale, I was genuinely moved. I grew up watching Porridge, Blackadder, Fawlty Towers and the such like, and I think this, with an audience, evokes many of those.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just gets better, 2 Sep 2011
This review is from: The Sophtware Slump (Audio CD)
I love this album. I remember being in Leeds, putting it on my girlfriend's stereo and sitting opposite the speakers. I was in awe. I listened to it 3 times in a row.

Fast forward 8 years. I am coming home drunk, and He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the pilot comes on. At around 3.40 into the track, on the edge of hearing, I hear the riff from AM 180. I rewind it to hear it, it is there. So some 200 times of listening, and on the 201st it gave me something new.

That is why this album rocks.

4.0 out of 5 stars They just always surprise you, 23 Sep 2005
I got hold of this early on Itunes and i have just placed and order for the CD. From Pull the Curtains on the day, all the way to the end, this EP shows once again the breadth of Grandaddy's song writing. Just wonderful rock / prog / folk / miserablist / happy brilliance!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rubber factory, rubber soul!, 11 Sep 2004
This review is from: Rubber Factory (Audio CD)
The first few songs are like a sucker punch. To the uninitiated it is like a slap asking, 'Why have you not listened to this band before?' Rubber Factory has all the signs of an album for mainstream acceptance...but i don't think they will get it. The music on this album is too raw, too primeval and too fantastic to be played on the radio. Buy this album and you won't ever regret it, the Black keys have this ability to get to the very essence of rock and the blues and twang at strings in you that you never had. Dan's hanuting guitar and Patrick's nous both behind the drums and as a producers has created another album that should, in years to come, be seen as a great rock album. If you liked the big come up, thick freakness...in fact any great guitar based music...you will love this!

4.0 out of 5 stars They might continue to change but the are still giant, 15 July 2004
This review is from: The Spine (Audio CD)
Word. Listen to it, and you'll be like 'Sure, Au Contraire is good but feh! It is ok.' Then you will listen to it again, as it is so short, and it gets better and you think 'Wearing a raincoat is ace!' They you listen to it again (it really is that short) and to use their phrase 'It's kicking in yeah!' And before you know it, it has grabbed you and you can sing along or at least make the right noises to each song and it rocks. They only reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because they have better albums, but this is better than Mink Car and all those crazy eps they have regurgitated recently.
