4.0 out of 5 stars good but not quite the same as seeing them live!, 24 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Uncaged (Audio CD)
saw them live and thought they were fantastic so got the album which I really like but not quite as lively and infectious

5.0 out of 5 stars Deceptively light yet full of wisdom and insight, 24 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stories about the messier things in business life that are habitually glossed over in the pursuit of big ideas like strategy, vision, business plans and goals sounded like a great idea for a book. "A home for the unspoken" proves what a good idea it is.

The deceptively light, personal storytelling approach which Asher self deprecatingly calls whimsical works perfectly. It is engaging and entertaining and yet insight and wisdom lie ever present just below the surface for us the readers to uncover for ourselves.

Asher describes how he deliberately chose not to add more " 'sense making' and guidance to each of the stories" and to leave it in our hands. However towards the end of the book he can't resist the urge and adds some thoughts and what he adds suggest it might have been interesting to see what he would have contributed to the others as well - but perhaps that's just this reader being lazy.

It is a book that helps you think a little more and a little longer about your and your colleagues' behaviours and as someone who probably talks too much, the story of "Jim the Dementor" particularly appealed. I will have to try the keeping quiet exercise on myself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great, 4 April 2013

It is enjoyable, mellow and by no means bad and with hints that the next CD could be even better

4.0 out of 5 stars A real return to form, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A real return to form from the nutty boys - though the material will probably appeal to original fans which like the 'boys' themselves are now a bit older. Some of the themes of the songs will resonnate more strongly with them - Never knew your name and How can I tell you (about a father trying to tell/teach their child about the joys and sorrows of growing up)

2.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately not the best gig you'll ever read, 12 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great concept and some fun musical history but the conclusions on branding were mostly a bit hackneyed. Some were out of date and others contradicted themselves in later chapters - shame

4.0 out of 5 stars Love child?, 7 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Back To Now (Audio CD)
If Morcheeba and Goldfrapp were to produce a love child album, this would be it. More electro-pop than Skye's previous offering I really enjoyed this. Nothing quite hits the heights of Goldfraapp at their very best or indeed Morcheeba (with Skye) at their best but a number of tracks would happily grace albums from either of these two. Probbaly over-used as a description but Skye's voice is delicious, at times as smoothh as melted chocolate, at others with the lift of a champagne cocktail.
