I love reading about alternative lifestyles and whilst swinging isn't for me, this is an intriguing book that opens your eyes!

5.0 out of 5 stars They just keep on getting better!, 19 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This could so easily be a one word review: Buy!

Whilst Beautiful Curse was a good record marred by lacklustre production, Black Eyed Sons is a tour de force and Chris Tsangarides and the band should be immensely proud.

Usually with the Quireboys the albums are a distant second to the live performance but every song, riff, lick and raspy vocal makes this the best studio album they've done - perfection.

Tracks such as Lullaby of London Town and What do you want from me? are gonna be live classics.

And then there's the DVD and acoustic CD - amazing value.

If you love music and you have a soul - just buy this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Too polished, 28 Jun. 2013

This review is from: Beautiful Curse (Audio CD)
The Quireboys as a live band are unsurpassed. A dingy booze filled venue with Spike bleeding good time rock 'n' roll can't be beat. So why is this record so sterile? Chris Tsangarides' has sucked out the usual Quireboys vibrancy and left us with a taste of what might of been. There's some great songs just itching to burst free from this hermetic production. And the drum sound.... poor is not the word - so lifeless!

So even though I hate the production this gets 4 stars as I love the Quireboys, but the record need to be remastered by someone who will let the songs come alive. Damn Shame!

Just a wonderful book, I'm only 5 chapters in and enjoying every page.

Professional wrestling is just amazing, the athletes deserve so much more respect than they get and reading this book makes you appreciate how hard they work.

Chris Jericho is a scream - the book follows his early life in the sport and has had me laughing out loud on almost every page - if you like sporting autobiographies this is a must read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 11 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Fall To Grace (Audio CD)
What a great shame, it seems to me that Paloma has been forced down the hackneyed Adele route by her record company and lost her verve and panache.

There's far too much navel gazing rubbish out there. I had hoped that Paloma would redress the balance again with another uplifting record.

An opportunity missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars I've never felt so sorry for a sportsman, 18 Jan. 2012
This is a quite wonderful book, Jonny is searingly honest throughout and whilst his intensity was no secret, the fears and demons that drove him go much deeper than anyone could have guessed. I think it's fair to say, that Jonny was deeply unhappy for a large part of his career which is so sad.

Buy this book - you won't be able to put it down.

1.0 out of 5 stars Obvious and boring, 20 April 2006
This review is from: Adept (Adept Series) (Paperback)
How does rubbish like this get published? The author cannot write convincing dialogue, the plot is full of holes and the ending is laughable by introducing an unannounced character to tie up the book.
