1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid for Andre 3000!, 17 Feb. 2012
Just thought I had to review this album as I was given it as a present and wanted to warn other Andre 3000/ OutKast fans....I dont know where this album came from or how Andre let it come out but its terrible.

33 tracks so it cant be that bad right? well all the major tracks like B.O.B/Millionaire/Ms Jackson are shortened versions of the originial tracks so yeah you get a couple of chrouses and then it fades out!?!?!?!

The rest of the tracks come in with Andre 3000's rap/singing and quickly fade out again before any of the rest of the song can play out or even like on 'Skew it on the Bar-B' it just stops like someones turned off your track???

If your an Andre 3000 fan, just download the originial tracks from amazon and make your own'll be a lot happier!!!!

Price: £4.79

5.0 out of 5 stars Ed banger's prodigal son!, 2 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Total (MP3 Download)
I've gotta say this album is epic, theres little space for fault on the whole 22 tracks (although maybe M.I.A's weak lyrics should of been given a miss) Obviously the whole listeners issue with the wait is quite valid, because if tracks like 'embody' and 'total' had been released before justice's 'cross' album the 'stars' of Ed Banger and dance music could of been a lot different right now.

Having said that it's quite obviously a build up of sebastian's work over the last few years and i'm more than happy to get it late than never. With Justice releasing a quite average follow-up to their first album it's excellent to then go back to the stereo and put this on! Aside from the sheer joy of the tracks also your getting 22 for your cash and not many artists can claim that in the last few years and trust me even the intro/interlude/outro's are worth listening to.

So dont worry about the remarks about it being 'too late' this album shows Sebastian bore the style and it still has many more roads to explore in my view, no wonder he decided to kiss himself!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Two day wonder!, 2 Nov. 2011
I'll keep this simple, I was swayed by the reviews of this trimmer and so bought the item. The first one i received stopped working after two days, after going through a huge waste of time with remington over the warranty I ordered another one thinking maybe it was a faulty battery i used etc.
Having had the second one a few weeks it has now, this morning decided to die also. When i first recevied the trimmer i was worried about the plastic cheap feel to it but put my faith in a known brand and the reviews on here. But i've got to say i wont be buying remington again the warranty is a waste of paper and the product seems to only last a few shaves.
I'm aware many people seem to be quite happy with the product on here but i thought i would warn people that this product is prone to breaking and becoming faulty quite easily.

My advice is stay away and go for maybe a bigger better build item or the phillips trimmer which was what i used before switching.

2.0 out of 5 stars Change the Title!, 19 Oct. 2011
I had been looking forward to getting this book for ages. I have to say I've nearly finished it and it has been a bit of a let down. The book itself promises insights and detailed backgrounds to the songs themselves that I was looking forward to, as many of my favourite musicians are included. However only after the first few chapters I quickly realized that Lynskey should of just called the book 'Protest Songs, A general history' as when you start a section about a particular song he quickly whisks you off to what someone else was doing around that time.

There is obviously a need for setting the scene but the way the book is written you learn more about the times than the songs for example Gil Scott Heron (one of my all time favourite poets) only gets about a paragraph on what his song was about in the whole ten pages and the only inspiration Lynskey can think of is a possible stealing of someone else's title.

All in all I think the book should have not promised any kind of insight into any of the songs included. If you are new to musical knowledge and want to a know a 'general' background to protest songs then buy it but if you really want to know about the musicians and what inspired them...go somewhere else or you will be bored!
