1.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelmed!, 18 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quiet Life (Audio CD)
This lacks the polish of Gentlemen Take Polaroids, and Sylvian's voice isn't as smooth as we've come to know either. The song writing isn't quite as good as Polaroids too; only The Other Side of Love is worth a second look. I discarded this eighteen plus years ago.. and I can see why. As a fan of Sylvian's more commercial work, Japan have only made one noteworthy album! I've listened to this, and have binned this again! Major disappointment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent in patches, 14 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Islands (Audio CD)
For bass players, it's worth it to hear Begg's playing. No real stand out tracks except The Lion's Mouth, Big Apple and Turn Your Back On Me. The songwriting is a little weak and too goody-goody Christian for my tastes, and nothing except the aforementioned tracks really grabs you by the throat and demands your attention. Still, could be worse.. Limahl could be singing?

1.0 out of 5 stars Looked genuine?, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The battery looks genuine. But, after conditioning the battery for ten to twelve hours (day after day) it is still acting strangely! It's capacity drops as soon as it's unplugged. It switches the phone off when the S3 still has 30% left! And neither of these things happened with the original battery. This may be a very good forgery? Beware of Mobile Hut! They now aren't keen on refunding me too!

4.0 out of 5 stars So bad.. it's good, 9 May 2013

This review is from: Rawhead Rex [DVD] (DVD)
This is a low budget 15 certificate where the acting and effects are so bad, it's really, really funny! 1980s b-movies don't get any better than this. Rex is so sexy too!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Home DVD-RW but David is great!, 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great David Icke dvd. Good picture and sound, and a great three disc history connecting the dots of the manipulated illusion in which we all live. The discs were not silver ones; and two were heavily scratched (looked like a faulty production drive)? I had to have these repaired (at my own cost) before they played! Not happy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Walken, 7 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Classy performances all around, and Walken is at his understated, menacing best. Let down by the poor picture, which doesn't stand up to 21st century standards. However, this classic is hard to get. And if your a fan of Walken's more classier 90s movies, you won't be disappointed. Who the hell would kidnap him in the first place? Great ending too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beginning of the rot?, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dead Bees On A Cake (Audio CD)
For those who love the 'songs' of Manafon this album should be too 'lively' for you? Slow Indian percussion and jazz riffs are the name of the game. Great lyrics, as usual from Sylvian and his silky voice is at it's very best. The best, and only songs worthy of a second play are I Surrender, Cafe Europa, Wander lust and the short, and very atmospheric Darkest Dreaming. Forget this and get Everything and Nothing for the best of David's more commercial work?

Classic Rick with brilliant script writing and acting. They just don't make comedy like this anymore! Shame Yorkshire T.V have made a dreadful copy onto dvd. Terrible picture and sound. It's like a vhs!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sylvian at his best, 26 Mar 2013

This review is from: Everything & Nothing (Audio CD)
Would have put more of his most melancoly songs on it, but this collection is almost perfect. Sadness and it's emotions are his forte. No one does it better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gloom monster, 26 Mar 2013

This review is from: Gone To Earth (Audio CD)
In my opinion the most melancoly album of the last forty years. Brilliant. This is proper Sylvian; unlike the joke of Manafon, many of these songs have a haunting sadness that everyone who has ever loved can relate to.
