Very expensive for a one off application....will try citric acid powder in future following recommendations from others. Price apart it has done a pretty good job of descaling my machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars ... went for it when I thought it would be good to get the title on vinyl, 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I went for it when I thought it would be good to get the title on vinyl. After listening to the autorip collection it was clear that Doolittle itself was not included, others here confirming the omission, I was a little disappointed frankly, excellent as some of the demo's are I wanted the original too as a point of reference.

I need not have worried, the LP arrived yesterday in the wonderful 180g vinyl and tucked in between the two sides of the gatefold - there it was 'original album'. Happy.

I'm not going to go into in depth track by track reviews, because you can get that from your favourite mag - try Q or Record Collector. I will say if you know and like Doolittle from its first time around, this release is a bit of icing on top of what I think of as one of my 'best of all time' albums. It adds to the excellence of it all. If you don't know Doolittle, there is no harm trying this, but it could be a little bit overwhelming.

5 stars for the combination of great music, with several twisted incarnations, and the wonderful vinyl presentation and its gatefold artwork.

This review is from: Royal Blood (Audio CD)
The band that grabbed my attention more than any other during the Summer's festival season. Seeing those performances inspired me to dig deep and buy this when it was released.

It serves to re-emphasize what they were about - they sound little different on this brief CD to the way they presented in the big tents.

A power duo (in the true sense) - black keys on steroids maybe? though here we seem to have a bass & drum kit rather than guitarist and drum kit (plus partially hidden keyboard player). Shows how bass doesn't have to be simply part of the rhythm section - especially when he 'wrings that neck' - now where did that phrase come from?

be sure this is not a glossy cook book, a fairly thin bland paperback. That said it has some good ideas . the tomato soup recipe for example is good.

Cant say I'd recommend at the current 5.99 price...but there are some good secondhand deals on the marketplace which means it should get to you for a bit less than £3 - which I think is a fair price for the content.
