5.0 out of 5 stars Backstreet Boys Show Real Growth & Maturity, 30 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: In A World Like This (Audio CD)
The Backstreet Boys only go and do it again, release another hit album and this time without the meddling of their previous label. To be perfectly honest, they are better off without that label who dictated what they could and could not release, this time they are free to spread their wings and they have done just that.

This album is perfect from beginning to finish and the boys have many an opportunity to showcase why they are still the best selling boyband of all time and still mean business after 20 years in the industry. This album shows growth, highlights how much they have matured over the years and why their fan base is so loyal. These guys have stood the test of time and will be around for many more years, especially as they seem to thoroughly enjoy what they are doing.

Obviously I love the album as a whole, but if I was going to pick favourites I would opt for Madeleine (which was penned for a fan who took her life due to bullying, a very touchy subject and obviously strikes a chord with a lot of people), Show 'Em (What You're Made Of), Make Believe and One Phone Call.

This album is honest, beautiful and full of incredible harmonies and although nothing would ever top Millennium, this comes pretty close to being the perfect Backstreet Boys album, so spoil yourself and invest in something pretty amazing. You will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Despicable Me: Minion Rush (App)
Despicable Me: Minion Rush is a great game for people of all ages. You play the game as one of Gru's minions (obviously) on a mission to impress his boss and become 'Minion of the Year' or something like that. A very fun game, perfect for adults, children or anyone who appreciates the minion population.

5.0 out of 5 stars UNDERRATED KING, 14 April 2013
This review is from: Restored (MP3 Download)
Nate James is incredibly underrated within the world of music. For those who do not know who Nate is, then wow yyou have certainly been missing out over the years. Nate consistently delivers hit after hit, yet it baffles me why he has not been scooped up (again) by a major label, not that major labels are the be all and end all. It would be nice to see Nate receive the recognition he so truly deserves in music.

This compilation album is a sweetener for all of the people who do know who Nate James is, until he releases his next album (which he is working on now). For those who do not know who Nate James is, this can only be an introduction to his previous work, which consists of two studio albums, a covers album, numerous singles and EP's. Hand picked by Nate himself, each song showcases why Nate is one of the UK's most underrated talents in the industry and why you should pay attention to what he has to say.

This compilation is worth every penny, even though I have all of the songs on this album already.

Show your support to one of the UK's finest talents in music and click on the purchase button, you won't regret it.

This review is from: Sing To The Moon (Audio CD)
While so much music is being released from disposable artists who put hardly any thought into their music, it is nice to hear something from an artist who boasts real longevity within the industry.

After hearing Laura's music a while ago and purchasing other music of hers, I knew that I had to buy her album and it was worth every penny. Sit back, relax and unwind to the soulful tones of Laura Mvula, for she is the future of British soul music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A DISNEY CLASSIC!, 12 Nov 2011
The Lion King is easily one of the few Disney movies I absolutely adore, I do love all or most of Disney's movies, but The Lion King just had that edge over the rest. The original release in 1994 captured my imagination as a child, which is something Disney has been amazing at. They know how to capture the imagination of adults and children. I have been waiting forever for an official release here in the UK, especially as the only DVD I could purchase before was a foreign release and VERY expensive. This film is part of my childhood, so I was so excited when I saw it was getting an official UK release (long overdue).

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing To Look Back At Queen's Career!, 19 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an incredible look back at Queen's career, seeing how Freddie and the gang began to the amazing status they had as a group when Freddie tragically passed away.

I am a huge fan of Queen's work, a child of the 80's it was hard not to be influenced by this group in some way and if you didn't know who this group were back then, well, you just had to be living under a rock. I saw this book and thought it would make a great present to my father, who I got my love of Queen from. He loves it and is in awe, as he looks through some of the ticket stubs; photos; etc presented within this amazing book, which seems to focus on the music and career of Queen, rather than detailing their personal lives and controversies, etc.

A great addition to any fan of Queen's collection, but also as a music fan, you would just love to have this in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A STAR IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD!, 5 Dec 2010
This review is from: The Lady Killer (Audio CD)
I have been a huge fan of Cee Lo and his work for numerous years now and have come to love his soulful vocals on everything he does, he certainly knows how to reel you in and keep you hooked on his music, that's for sure.

After waiting for what seems like forever for 'The Lady Killer' to actually surface, it seems that we have not been left disappointed as Cee Lo proves time and time again that he knows how to deliver a quality album. This is easily one of the best albums of this year so far, along with a handful of other albums, which is something you don't come across these days. You tend to skip past certain songs on any album, but not with this one, a great album from beginning to finish. Although it's hard to choose a favourite song from this project, I would have to say that 'Bright Lights Bigger City' is easily one of the best contenders for overall favourite songs, it just oozes that certain something a quality song needs nowadays.

My tip would be to check out this album, you don't know what you're missing and when Cee Lo does reel you in, you'll be dancing around your living room and tapping your feet in no time. A real gem of an album, which Cee Lo delivers yet again!

5.0 out of 5 stars I DEFINITELY LOVE THIS ALBUM!, 5 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love Me Back (Audio CD)
I have been a fan of Jazmine Sullivan's work for quite some time now, a number of years in fact, ever since I heard some of her unreleased music around four or five years ago and I have not looked back. Jazmine certainly has what it takes to be one of the big players within the music industry, not only penning music for her own projects, but for a variety of other artists too. A fantastic songwriter, that's for sure.

Anyway onto the album, it was always going to be hard to top her debut album 'Fearless', which Jazmine blessed us with a couple of years ago, but she certainly doesn't do a bad job with this album. Her latest project, 'Love Me Back', definitely highlights Jazmine as an artist to certainly keep your eyes and attention on. I honestly don't think there's a bad song on this album, there's going to be something that caters for different people out there, depending on what you like. Whether you prefer Jazmine to serenade you alone with her silky and soulful vocals or whether you like the idea of her collaborating with Ne-Yo (who I'm not a huge fan of), there's bound to be something on here that will keep your appetite for great music satisfied.

As an overall project, I think the standout songs on here are easily: 'Redemption', 'Good Enough', '10 Seconds' and 'Don't Make Me Wait'. Honestly, if you love real quality R&B music with a touch of Soul, then Jazmine Sullivan is the artist for you and this album is a must, well worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Mum Loves This, 21 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this boxset for my mum's birthday, she absolutely adores Cliff and even though I'm not personally a fan of this kind of music, you simply cannot deny this man has a natural gift for music.

This album is pure class, from the CD itself down to the little jigsaw puzzle neatly packed inside the impressive box. My mums eyes lit up when she opened this, especially as it matches the last boxset (which is also packaged similar to this one) I bought for her last year around the same time. I haven't personally listened to this album, but I do know that my mum adores it and is raving about how incredible the album and the packaging is. He has definitely ticked all of the boxes, yet again. 70 years old and still going strong.

Inspirational man and amazing talent, make fun of him all you like, but it's a strong feat to have been in the music industry for as long as Cliff has been and still remain so relevant to his fans. Long may it continue!

5.0 out of 5 stars ERYKAH IS BACK, DOING WHAT SHE DOES BEST!, 1 April 2010
Erykah Badu is definitely one of the most influential artists of our time, along with a handful of others who are doing great things in music. She creates music that actually means something, music with thought behind it and I love it.

This album is incredible, from beginning to finish. There are no songs you want to skip through, this is exactly the kind of music the industry needs when so much pointless music is taking centre focus. Erykah brings it back to what music should be about! I love this album (the artwork is just as incredible) and would certainly recommend it to anyone who likes Erykah or music with substance and thought behind it.
