1.0 out of 5 stars Not what it appears!, 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jimmy Page (Audio CD)
Regardless of the title and cover picture, there's no Yardbirds / New Yardbirds / Led Zeppelin lead guitarist here - there is a pretty poor to mediocre blues band who's only chance of shifting album material is to think of a really attractive band name!

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Widow - Brink and Co. hit top stride., 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black Widow (Audio CD)
This is a really strong, enjoyable and oddly catchy album (and a natural progression from their last album, in my opinion). Maria is in fine fettle, belting them out with a passion, as are the band who are probably now as tight as they can be. My only teensy negative is the intro to the main track (I won't spoil it, listen to it) which does get a little jaded after 3 or 4 plays.

I bought this as a present for someone who is into gemstones and their supposed "healing" qualities etc. - no complaints from the recipient but, I have no idea if that is because she liked it or is too polite to complain!

4.0 out of 5 stars ITM Original album trilogy., 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great, cheap, way of getting the first 3 albums and seeing (hearing) the progression of ITM from a somewhat generic to their now reasonably distinct style and the natural build up to Black Widow (their latest album).

4.0 out of 5 stars Blood at the Orpheum DVD, 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blood At The Orpheum (DVD)
Pretty good live event. The only non concert footage is of Maria Brink, in the dressing room, explaining the songs - that girl has a lot of tat's. Altogether, this is a really enjoyable concert DVD for ITM (or just the genre) fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rip Off, planned obsolescence, printer component works!, 19 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a waste toner collection cartridge - what's to comment on? It was "required" to allow my Samsung CLP-500 printer to continue working - a classic case of planned obsolescence as the "old" waste cartridge was, a) not full (it was about 2 to 5% full!) and b) fitted, contrary to the printer's electronic display information that one or the other was extant.
As to the product itself: it was delivered within 3 days of ordering, very well packed, in all original Samsung packaging. It was a doddle to fit and it works just fine. No quibble with the supplier just with the rather blatant product churn by Samsung.

5.0 out of 5 stars Born To Die - The Paradise Edition - Stunning lyrics wrapped in a voice of honey., 10 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lana Del Rey is, to my ancient ears, one of the finest lyricists I've had the pleasure of listening to for many a year. That she has the vocal abilities to match puts her head and shoulders above the competition in the singer songwriter genre.
Her lyrics are at times any combination of bitingly vicious, almost suicidally bleak and capriciously exuberant - this is a life story put to music and delivered in such a beautifully modulated vocal fashion that it feels like a rose in velvet, the barbs are there but you defer to the gentle setting.
A veritable master-class in composition, lyricism and vocal delivery - parental advisory notices be dam*ed, this is a life story and sometimes life sucks. "Paradise" is a natural progression from "Born To Die" (as, indeed, is the recently released follow up album, "Ultraviolence"). I, for one, want to follow that life story and wallow in the experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just filling the gaps!, 10 Aug. 2014
Another solid production from one of the best melodic rock bands currently performing and recording. You either love or hate Volbeat, personally I'm in the former category and had to get this album to fill the gap between "Guitar Gangsters" and "Outlaw Gentlemen" (not sure how I missed it first time around but, c'est la vie). It was definitely worth the purchase.

As a "best of" collection this is a very good introduction to Slipknot - it's also a good one for the car :)
