LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE

5.0 out of 5 stars Back With a Bang, 21 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE (Audio CD)
Wow !!! it is many years since their first album and that was a great record. Then in my opinion the second album was far removed from their original roots i gave it to the charity shop after 3 plays. Now they are BACK. This should have been their follow up album.

From start to finish this is power, good time rock at its best. Fantastic melodies, sing a long chorus's and brilliant sang crafting and musicianship.This is stadium anthem rock at its best.

if i were blasting down the highway with the sun blazing... this album would be ideal... It has that feel good factor...

music as it should be.... Rock On !!

5.0 out of 5 stars great.... just the job, 13 Dec. 2013

worked a treat... easy to use.... paper like finish... not glossy or cheap looking...

but always make sure that there is no air bubbles or creases in the label... as the heat of the cd in the cd player will make the labels peel and they may get stuck in certain types of cd players.... that is a tip and in no way a criticism of the product

How easy is this.... it simply clips to the end of your guitar ,... and you hit the string... and it reads the vibration from the neck of your guitar...and then you tune in from there....

this is brilliant for tuning up in a noisy place such as a pub when gigging as like I said it reads the vibration on the neck of the guitar and not the sound the string makes...

the accuracy is brilliant too...

one of the best products I have bought... would definitely recommend to any guitar player beginner through to legend.

1.0 out of 5 stars oops.... why did i buy this, 13 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Post Punk ? that should not be on the title.... gives you the impression that the album is going to be fast or a least have some fast tracks on it.... on the preview there appears to be some good electro synth tunes.... and yes there is.... but you hear the best 30secs of a 9 minute track that takes the full 9 minutes to build to that moment.... and after 6 or 7 numbers you think.... where is the off button...

Classics.... I think that I somewhat of an exaggeration.... I mean classicS, plural .... is there two good songs on here ? and rarities... yes and they will stay that way.... I could think of another word for them ...

but if you like a plodding drum machine beat with an attempt at music over the top then you may well disagree with me....But how there could possibly be a sequel to this ..... and there is..... is beyond me...

5.0 out of 5 stars still a classic, 13 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hysteria (Audio CD)
Recently watched the classic album programme and decided to buy a copy.... well it has stood the test of time... every track is solid both musically and lyrically... the detail and effort that has gone into each track is very pleasing on the ear... a well mixed heavy rock album with a very electrical feel....

it would be to easy to dismiss this album as heavy metal... it is much more subtle than that yet still has power and passion... but the detailed musicianship gives the album to me ... a classic album status... and one that I will play for years to come

This is a vast body of work.... but it does not have the bite of better Fleetwood mac albums... but if you are a fan then there is a lot here to be happy about

5.0 out of 5 stars An Album of A Lifetime, 7 May 2013
This review is from: Brave (Audio CD)
Why am I reviewing this album.... so many will have more intelligent things to say than I.... But with every review on amazon this album only scores an average of 4 stars... so I wanted to add another 5 star review to affect the average.... as this is without doubt the greatest musicians album of the last 25 years.

To me like so many others have said this album took a number of plays for me to fully appreciate its quality, and it must be played in its entirety on each listen and with your undivided attention.

Some reviewers have said this is not just music to listen to... its music to feel to as well and it is that combination that makes this album stand out from 99% of other albums ever released

Never in my lifetime have I come across another album as stunning as this one... but you must, like it says lie down in the dark and turn up the volume (headphones).... the delicacy and the power ... the toing and froing of emotional turmoil... and the sparkling ending....

If I had wrote this album, I would celebrate it everyday of my life

Thank you to the band that have brought so much real music to the table

5.0 out of 5 stars A Pirates Adventure, 8 April 2013
This review is from: Flagship (MP3 Download)
A wonderful song about a pirates ship and crew... The vocals hit home with the gritty tale of a mutinous crew

A simple song that is so effective... it demands to be heard, and again the lyrics are so detailed that you almost believe that you are on board this Flagship..

The mandolin plays centre stage and gives the song that ocean bound feel.... a brilliant middle builds to a crescendo as the song unfolds...

a marvellous song that places us on board the Prof Panglos Flagship

5.0 out of 5 stars A Summers Dance, 8 April 2013
This review is from: Richard's Farm (MP3 Download)
This song gets better every listen.... from the haunting flute at the very beginning to the master class of guitar work.... The vocal melody just begs for us to learn the words so we can sing along....

The song twists and turns and takes us on a summers day journey on Richards farm.... where the sun shines and the babbling brook trickles.... just lie back, and let the words take your imagination to a relaxing place....

Beautiful !!

4.0 out of 5 stars a good solid effort, 26 Jan. 2011
This review is from: After the Rain (Audio CD)
i really enjoyed this album... i even made a mistake of buying the follow up in search of more great sing along anthem rock songs... The second album turned into country rock.... this however is a different story

this is guitar riff bassed good time rock music.... power ballards but mainly up tempo music to drive to with the top down on your imaginary sports car...

obviously its early 90s rock but it still feels fresh to day

a winner
