5.0 out of 5 stars Shapeshift, 20 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Shapeshifter (Audio CD)
This is a real Gem. It's not much like the clasic 70s Gong but neatly fits into the early 90s traveller/rave scene. A must for all Gong fans and surely worth a listen to anyone who appreciates a good tune. This is a strong album, there's no weak track but the absolute highlight is Give my Mother a Soul Call, brilliant!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the hype, 7 Jun. 2009
This review is from: The Kite Runner (Paperback)
This is not good; cliche after cliche, endless cheap tugs at the heartstrings, a plodding obvious plot and awful two dimensional characters. And making the villain a Nazi, paedophile and Taleban leader all rolled into one?! If this book had been written this year he'd probably have been an greedy banker too. Evil just isn't like this and portraying it this way makes the story totally unbelievable and quite offensive.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst book I've read EVER!, 6 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Labyrinth (Paperback)
This is terrible. A ridiculous plot and one dimensional characters who I ended up caring not a jot about. I'm angry I wasted my money on it, please learn from my error.

5.0 out of 5 stars great, 26 Aug. 2008
i was quite confused at first about buying a jbl radial ipod dock. i kept reading mixed product information and i wasn't sure if this product did what i wanted it to do.

i wanted it to use a printer usb cable to sync with my computer because apparently you have to use an expensive ipod cable on the radial micro and i wanted the video output to be s-video (unlike a radial micro that a friend owns)also i lost my dock connector that came with my ipod classic so i wanted it to include those.

because of my specific wants i took quite a risk buying this product but when it came i was delighted. in the box were many dock connectors, one of which fit my ipod. it came with a printer usb cable and an auxillary lead. there were two power cables included. one for england and one for france, both were very long but could easily be wrapped around the transformer in the middle of the lead to make it shorter. it did have s-video out but as i expected no lead was supplied.

the performance of the dock was also brilliant. it produced great quality sound even at high volumes which leads onto another point. it can go very loud if you want it to. I've used it at several BBQ's and had to play the music loud but i still haven't got to the volume limit. one great thing is that it always charges your ipod while its connected and it does it fast. since buying the dock i haven't needed to specifically stop using my ipod so it can be charged...it's just always got full battery which is perfect for unexpected long journeys, and because my ipod has a lithium ion battery you can charge it without fully discharging it and not harm it. despite having 6 buttons the remote can do everything on your ipod that the buttons do because 1 button controlls the function of the other 5, this is great for me because i have the dock across the room from my bed which is a bunk bed so getting out of bed just to skip a track or pause it is out of the question.

it does also have some very small bad points though. its quite heavy but not in a way that really matters. also the power cable doesn't stay in very well. if you move it to another place on your desk for example while it is playing, the power cable falls out slightly and has to be put back in and you have to turn it on again before you can listen to it. also although its not actually a bad point, i haven't had a chance to test the video output so i don't know if it works with my ipod classic which are specially designed by apple to not let you watch video on a tv unless it is plugged into the apple universal dock which is quite frankly awful.

overall a great quality, good looking (not that that matters) ipod dock which if put next to a computer can function as computer speakers and as a way of charging and syncing your ipod with your computer. the only significant downside is the price, but since the sound quality is as good as very expensive docks like the ones from bose then its not really an issue.

a must have for anyone with an ipod who can afford it.

Get this CD! You can download their CD's of their website. (hint hint).

Anyway exellant folk punk. Think Against Me! but without distortion, and abit of female vocals. It's basically Folk but with punk attitude, or visa versa I suppose.
