Great little case that fits my GoPro Hero3+ just perfect. Why pay over the odds for the branded one when there's this sturdy case that fits just right! :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Cutting-edge prog house, with a few detours..., 27 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anjunabeats Volume 11 (Audio CD)
I've not usually bought much of A&B's label stuff because I've found their stablemates to be a bit too hardcore trancey compared to their own more accessible sound. Having been a massive fan of Sasha's deep house productions in recent years though I heard a few snippits of this album and decided to take a gamble on it and it's been a great surprise. Vol #11 contains two excellent progressive mixes that slowly build through various genres to an excellent climax. Perfect driving music or for whatever journey you next decide to take. Sasha, take note!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, sturdy mount for your smartphone, 13 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good value for money considering the other more expensive options available from leading manufacturers and high street phone shops. It's kept my Galaxy S5 perfectly sturdy mounted in the windscreen on long journeys. Never fallen off once, which is more than I can say for my old mount!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good budget option, 13 Oct. 2014
This is a good budget option if you're short on case after shelling out on a GoPro. The pole isn't the sturdiest, but the harnesses are more than adequate for all sorts of mounting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for younger Whovians!, 13 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought this for a 7-year old Doctor Who fan who was attending our wedding - and we didn't hear a sound from him throughout the reception as he was enthralled in this book! The pictures aren't terribly complex, but kids will be kept occupied for long enough.

1.0 out of 5 stars Never again, 25 Mar. 2014
If I could give this product zero stars I would. Never have I written such a negative review about a product, but like fellow cat owners I feel I MUST get the word out.

I gave my cat the powder yesterday mixing it with her usual food. She sniffed it, ate a bit of it, then walked away. She nibbled a bit more overnight, but had left most of it.

To my horror, my cat had an epileptic fit this morning and I had to rush her into the vet. The only unique factor the vet could point to, from my explanation of my cat's routine, was administering the Bob Martin powder. The vet said she's been treating more and more cats these days suffering from terrible reactions to Bob Martin products.

Don't just believe me, do your research on the internet.

I, for one, will NEVER use Bob Martin products again,

4.0 out of 5 stars A little less epic, a bit too vocal, 31 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sasha Involver 3 (Audio CD)
This doesn't quite hit the heights of the first two Involvers, but even calling it the weakest of Sasha's trilogy still puts this release light years ahead of other mix albums out there. What's missing from Invol<3r are those trademark epic tracks that Sasha dropped around 2/3d of the way through the first two mixes. Though the mixes of 'Battleships', 'Moment Before Dreaming' and 'The Healing' are beautiful indeed, it's just that there's no 'Burma' or 'That You Might' to really launch it into the stratosphere. I always thought the first two mixes played best whilst driving on the motorway at night, but Invol<3r plays more like a intimate club set. Don't get me wrong, that can be a good thing, it's still a great mix, it's just not quite as good as the first two.

4.0 out of 5 stars X, Y, and avoiding the 'Zzzzz', 10 Jun. 2005
This review is from: X&Y (Audio CD)
Initially disappointing on a first listen, this album is a real grower on subsequent plays. The sheer promotional onslaught and anticipation surrounding this album perhaps meant that some were expecting nothing less that the second coming of The Beatles. Perhaps not the landmark album that Martin & co were hoping with their perfectionist tinkering, this is nonetheless a very solid album that rewards more on each listen and adds further depth to their evolving signature sound. Stand out tracks are definitely 'Square One', 'What If', 'Fix You' and surely the anthemic future single 'Talk'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ambitious, original, flawed..., 6 Jun. 2005
This book will divide people. Having been hailed as literary fiction's bright new thing I read 'Everything is Illuminated' and, apart from flashes of brilliance and infectious humour, I was decisively under whelmed.
'Extremely' has the same flaws has Foer's debut - the narrative is often bogged down by excessive linguistic acrobatics that merely confuse the reader and barely advance the story at times. This is particularly frustrating as occasionally the characters, dialogue and narrative do clear like parting clouds and everything aligns perfectly for a few pages and becomes quite enjoyable, until the acrobatics return, the narrative clouds over again and it once more become thoroughly baffling to read. A shame really as the closing chapters dovetail nicely into an emotional, affecting end to the book that'll have you wondering why he didn't write that clearly all along.
Those who loved his debut will praise this is equal measure, but you may find Foer an acquired taste. If you're looking for an easy summer read, steer clear, but if you liked to be challenged by every page, grab a copy, take a deep breath and give it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep the faith..., 7 Jun. 2004
This review is from: No Roots (Audio CD)
I'll hold my hands up here and admit that I wasn't entirely bowled over by 'Outrospective'. When held up against 'Reverence' and 'Sunday 8PM' it was definitely the weakest of the three. That's not saying it was an awful album at all, just somewhat short of their own very high benchmark. Though it pains me to say this as an ardent fan, in some places they were in danger of sounding a little dated.
So if that explains why I approached 'No Roots' with lower expectations than before, I'll now briefly surmise why I've been absolutely hooked since the first listen. This is Faithless back to their most insistent, urgent and downright pioneering. Maintaining the trademark balance of dancefloor stormers, slower lyric-driven tracks and ambient interludes they've gone for a distinctly widescreen approach throwing completely new influences into the mix. Faithless get to rock, that's all I'm going to say. With the guests Dido is as reliably beautiful as ever in her delivery, but the new recruit LSK really shines making the tracks he's given very much his own and providing a fascinating lyrical partner for Maxi. Granted it doesn't have an absolute stand-out track like 'Insomnia' standing head-and-shoulders above the rest, but in short, that's because this is their most assured and consistent album yet. Full marks.
