Essentially an unplugged recording....it is a fantastic body of work here made even better through simplicity. A very stripped down approach but beautifully done and his voice just seems to get better and better. As for the playing...well it's not just the notes, it's the spaces he leaves and the touch is just beautiful. Some really fine song writing here with some real bite. There is some really tender material here and others that still make me wince after many, many listenings. "That's why I love mankind" and "Rednecks" spring to mind. ....

It just sounds he is right in front of you - a very "live" sound in terms of immediacy and warmth.. Do not pass this album by just because you have earlier versions. This is a fantastic album. Get the headphones out !

I first heard about 30 seconds of one of the tracks on radio 3's classical chart and bought the album immediately. I have other versions of some of this material but these arrangements are both unusual and beguiling. I have played the album end to end several times and it is a really outstanding album in my view. Definitely one of those albums for headphones or a quiet time with absolutely no interruption- these pieces reward careful listening. The Benjamin Britten and Spiegel im Spiegel pieces are absolutely mesmerising.

An album to listen to carefully and without prejudice.

Tremendous value for the mp3 download and I wonder what the Cd would sound like through top end hifi....wow

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality, 10 April 2013

Slightly oversized strap as expected but not heavy and was comfortable straight out of the box. Not an over sized watch though and I imagine would be fine for most wearers.

The watch quality in terms of the steel, machining, bezel and overall detailing is just outstanding. TImekeeping will have to be tested over a longer period but initial impressions are...wow.

Setting date and time was absolute childs play and the lume is already very impressive after just a few hours of natural daylight. As reported by other reviewers, the colour is more modest than might be expected but I'm actually pretty happy with that.

Overall, it seems like an absolutely astonishing amount of watch for the money and worth the shipping wait. If initial impressions last this is going to a real keeper for many, many years. And no batteries or seal tests to worry about either....just amazed by this watch both at this price and what I hope will be very low maintenance costs too.

Excellent. Clear, great structure and pay out. Very user friendly and its clear that many people will only ever use a fraction of the PEN's capabilites. Am just starting to work through it and already learning a lot. Highly recommended

Funny, dark, artfully vague.

I am fascinated by the use of language. In the time of the WMD debate and the understandable obsession regarding Osama's capture, this is a fascinating piece of its time, but resonates in so many other modern contexts. Some of the responses remind me very much of the language of MASH, Catch 22.....

This is a book you can dip into or read cover to cover (many times). I've recommended it to countless friends and despite the tongue in cheek framing of this as poetry, it is a fascinating use of language and media language. If you work for a large organisation and are beset by unfathomable political forces, this will make you laugh out loud and frown in equal measure.

A treasure and a steal at this price. Dont keep this as a "known unknown" any longer.....

Buy it.
