4.0 out of 5 stars A long time ago, 19 Mar 2008
This review is from: Englands Trance (Audio CD)
This album came out a long time ago and I should say I haven't listened to it since then. But I remember it well. The singer has a beautiful voice and the guitars form a dense jangle behind it - I remember NME comparing it to The Byrds when it came out - didn't know who they were back then... I wonder where these guys are now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, 11 Mar 2008
but the track from the wonderful Emmanuelle Parrenin is not Apres L'Ondee, it's called Voyage Migrateur. You can actually tell that from the fact the only lyrics are "Voyage Migrateur". Not only that, they actually manage to spell the wrong title wrong - it's not Apres Londee. Sloppy work guys! Anyway, pedantry aside, this is an ace collection. And fans should definitely check out E. Parrenin's Maison Rose - it's amazing.

1.0 out of 5 stars lyrics, 22 Feb 2008
This review is from: Lyrics (Hardcover)
"lyrics" is something we used to say at school when there were some particularly stupid lyrics in a song. Except, we said it more like "leereeks". I think we probably said it quite a bit when anything by The Police came on - looking back, the "leereeks" were particularly awful with The Police, weren't they? I can't imagine this book's going to be much fun to read or even just to look at but then, I don't think I'm ever likely to be buying it or reading it. Does anyone have anything positive to add?

4.0 out of 5 stars The Black's Blue brother, 13 Dec 2007
While the blue Bic Crystal will inevitably continue to exist in the shadows of its more famous brother, the black Bic Crystal, this is still still a sturdy, reliable writing implement for those who wish to mark paper, etc., with blue ink. I have had a number of these over the years and have never had any specific complaints with the overall design and functionality of the unit that I can recall. The only drawback, and I may be stating the obvious here, is that this does NOT work with a computer - for that you're best investing in investing in a keyboard or similar.

Also, for the more adventurous of you out there, these pens can also be found in red and green!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull, 10 Dec 2007
Alison Jackson has been peddling the same gag for over a decade now through the "funnies" section of the Sundays and even briefly on TV. As a meme it's pretty stale by now. Yes, one gets the idea, you look twice because (hopefully) you think for a moment it's a real photograph. Then you see it's not. The manner in which this stuff is presented is intended to create the impression you're looking at some kind of fine art, rather than an endless series of samey photographic novelties. Hmmm. Still, this would probably make a nice Christmas present for the right person - a Media Studies undergraduate with learning difficulties perhaps.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is good, 10 Oct 2002
This review is from: Premiers Symptomes (Audio CD)
Just for the record, this is a round up of tracks released on 12" before Moon Safari was recorded.
My (rather heavy) vinyl copy has only the first 5 tracks on it and yet... it's one of my favourite records of all time.
The sound is hard to describe - it's the sound of old, analogue machinery parping and wowing, it's got a lot of dubby bass and echo. It's just oh-so cool and gallic, it's that 60's feel that stereolab love, coloured lights, white walls, guys in black polo neck sweaters - you know...
The first and the last tracks of Moon Safari (can't remember what they're called just now) are in the same vein, if you'd like a more precise indication.
And the record has a lovely cover with faux-70's yellow and orange dots sliding through holes in the brown cover as you take it out. I love it.
