1.0 out of 5 stars Motor Stopped after 1 week, 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
VERY disappointed. When you buy one of the higher end models you expect it to last..certainly more than a week!
Maybe I had a bad one but for something that is used once or twice a day you expect better build quality.

1.0 out of 5 stars POINTLESS!, 9 Feb 2014
This review is from: Lords of London [DVD] (DVD)
You're thinking..Ray Winstone, Cockney Gangster Film aren't you?
Err...no. It's not set in London, has Winstone in a small cameo, and this low budget disaster has a truly ludicrous plot if you can find it.
The only sure thing is that you will be screaming at Amazon for a refund and at the TV for 90 minutes of your life back.

1.0 out of 5 stars 3 WORDS,,,,, 1 April 2010
This review is from: 3 Words (Audio CD)
I could give you 3 words for this, the first 2 would be LOAD OF
(I'm sure you can fill in the last...)

Cheryl Cole, solo artiste, songwriter, vocalist , er, no.
Why the ridiculous phoney american accent aswell? she can barely speak the queens english without an interpreter.
AVOID unless buying for a 13 year old girl with no musical awareness.

1.0 out of 5 stars Music FROM other people more like!!, 9 Oct 2009
This review is from: Music For The People (Audio CD)
The first Album was great. angry, punchy pop songs, so the second album was always gonna be an issue: do they come out with the same style or change it up a bit?

Well, they've opted for the latter and I have to say I'm VERY disappointed.
This offering is really Overproduced and the songs lack the fire of the first CD.

The major problem is the blatent stealing from other bands!
Ok, all bands "borrow" the odd riff or melody line from other songs, (thats how music progresses after all)but this takes the biscuit!

ELEPHANT SONG = Listen! remind you of the start of a certain OASIS Album?....

LAST GOODBYE = Great Song.. but is it Richard Ashcroft singing? TOTAL VERVE RIPOFF! + even more obviously the chorus is THE UNIVERSAL by BLUR! try it! sing along!

NATION OF CHECKOUT GIRLS = Come on.. it's COMMON PEOPLE by PULP. Scandalous!

DON'T BREAK THE RED TAPE = Oh God . Stop! The verses are blatently LONDON CALLING by the CLASH.

Music for the people? more like STOLEN FROM THE BANDS.
Hope they made lots of money from the first CD, they'll need it for the court actions...

1.0 out of 5 stars the worst kind of 80's trash...Badly done!, 17 Sep 2009
This review is from: La Roux (Audio CD)
If the single in for the kill is "the highlight of the cd" as one reviewer said then god help us all.
flat schoolgirl x-factor vocals over music lending more to a casio digital watch.
I'd rather listen to Danny LaRoux than this industry produced robot.

1.0 out of 5 stars ....NO!!! Chris NO!!!..., 4 Mar 2009
This review is from: Scream (Audio CD)
JESUS CHRIST(POSE)I Don't know where to start with this review..
I've been a Soundgarden Fan since the early days, I Loved all Chris' Solo work (let's face it, with a voice like that he could sing the phone book and STILL make it rock)But this "Project" really is beyond the pale.

The trend these days seems to be:
Need a Hit? Flagging Career? No Talent?
Give Timbaland & Timberlake a call and everything will be ok!
Chris Cornell is none of the above so what the hell possessed him to do this?!!

Let's be clear about something - Chris Cornell does not need a "New Direction" or help from anyone to write and perform great songs, so how reviewers can claim to love Soundgarden and his solo work AND like this is nothing short of astonishing.

These Songs with his vocals (Minus all the R&B/Hip Hop fluff) will hopefully appear in some sort of accoustic or demo form somewhere, so my advice is - Avoid this like the plague....

5.0 out of 5 stars YES! YES! YES!, 21 Sep 2007
This review is from: Magic (Audio CD)
WHAT A SUPERB ALBUM.
As a lifelong Springsteen fan I'm pretty well qualified to voice an opinion and this album ranks up there with the best of them!

If the E-Street band sound is the Bruce you know and love, this album never disappoints - from the fabulously rockin' opening track to the last it's totally "filler-free" and had me on the first listen!

Don't even think about hesitating - BUY IT.
If you don't agree with me... I'LL give you your money back!

1.0 out of 5 stars NO.. NO.. NO.., 6 Aug 2007
This review is from: Made of Bricks (Audio CD)
Seeing as her and Lily Allen are supposedly "Best Friends" it wasn't a great shock to hear very similar fare from Kate Nash.
Yet another dippy girl,trying to be 'street' and dropping her T's when she sings... ZZzzzz...
ONE LILY ALLEN IS QUITE ENOUGH. I don't really think the world could stand another one?!?
The Album may be called Made of Bricks, but if it was a house I'd have it knocked down.
