5.0 out of 5 stars Action all way, 12 Mar. 2013
Once i opened it and stared reading i wasn't sure what to expect, but wow. I could not stop and was taken on hell of a ride. Some parts wear abit heard to get the detail of what was happening correct. Love the strong characters within the book and craved to find out more about them. All in all very good. First in a long line of stories i hope, as i have read the other books 6 sacred stones and 5 warriors.

3.0 out of 5 stars Weak in the series, ok as stand alone movie., 29 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Prometheus [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
This film for me if i base the review on the Alien series alone is weak. Film is clearly based on one character and her view as apposed to the first Alien film which wasn't clearly based on miss weaver until the last third. Action was know were near as much as Aliens or inventive . Emotional lacking of Alien3 but same pace, Most resembled Alien resurrection with the whole DNA science questions which in that film was done more fun and stylish for my personal taste. conclusion was slow paced with story line which was no surprise at all. Characters were to black and white and not much grey like alot of the previous alien film series.

As a stand alone film was interesting if very obvious what was going to happen! Seen it before feeling. Action was very slow and not enough suspense didn't built up enough to final.

Noomi Rapace i didnt care for her in the end of the film at all i felt no feeling and im not sure why. she was a very black and white character for me. Michael Fassbender was excellent and would like to see more about that character. Charlize Theron's character i was drawn to the most and wanted to know more and she adapted more so as the film when on in classic Alien style, should of kept her as main final survivor as they was obviously alot more to her to come.

Conclusion it have been better in James Camerons hands story wise??

5.0 out of 5 stars 1992's Tourism 20 years on..., 9 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Travelling (Audio CD)
A Very diverse collection of songs all recorded while on there 2011/2012 world tour 'travelling'. Similar to there 1992 album 'tourism' in set up, which was a great idea during there 91/92 world tour, and is a great idea to do another 'Tourism' album for 2012 20 years on while on the new found never ending world tour. Works as well as it did then.

Live songs, new arrangements of old songs, acoustic songs, power pop songs. Big ballad, and a couple of stripped down songs. Old gems new gems. Big production numbers all for a good travel.

Album highlights 'Touched by the hand of god' classic Roxette at there best. 'Turn of the tide' Roxette in big ballad form, and 'Its possible' 2012's version of 'how do you do'. Very enjoyably interesting treasure of an album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its great crap., 14 Feb. 2008
If you love your rubbish seedy programmes with twists and turns and humour, you will love this like i did. Desperate housewives but based on a trashy mag company owner, who is just one of many characters with problems and situations. Its not based on real life, its just some fun so sit back and just say what the hell ! lol.

4.0 out of 5 stars Summer pop with dark sweet undertones, Like coffee with sugar., 10 Sept. 2007
Had her 3rd album counting down the days and liked that alot. so i heard a GH collection is on way and its very good.

1 Glorious - Great adult pop song. mature catching says summer holidays sun.
2 Counting down the days - Good song great lyrics , change of speed in the song makes it interesting.
3 Torn - You all know it.
4 Wrong impresson - My personal best, but that aside summer happy sing along song think of lazy day in a bar your foot will tap.
5 Smoke - Different great lyrics, dark mood with a sweet undertone (Single version with extra beats i think)
6 Shiver - Again good adult pop song guitar based easy on the ear and a good sing along chorus
7 Wishing i was there - weakest single in my view, but has to hold up well with the others songs bare that it mind, Sounds old and abit too simple.
8 That day - Great song, different direction, slightly edgy and complicated very needed.
9 Big mistake - Slow burner to a rocky edge, good.
10 Beauty on the fire - Wonderful Best production on the album, electronic in nature with word 'Band loud' came to mind in the style of song.
11 Be with you - Second single for me after Glorious- fast slightly funky dreamy good.
12 Amelia - Reminds me of smoke, dark with sweet undertones, best kind of balled for Natalie
13 Against the wall - Its ok, its an album filler, nothing different far to simple and sounds boring.
14 Stuck on the moon - Nice closer for the album, again dreamy uplifting mid tempo with very sweet lyrics romantic.

Overall a couple of fillers, but songs great for drving through a city thats humid with the windows down after a shi*y day at work.

4.0 out of 5 stars American song book this is not, Thank god ! its rocks., 22 Oct. 2006
I was never a fan of the great american song books series he did, helps that im english, but i found them old and boring. I grew up with rod and rock with his fantastic vocals. He gets back to what he does best here, and i have to say love it. I would of given it 5 stars if he included some oring material aswell as covers. 'It's A Heartache' should be a single, great version he does, highlight for me.
