T&G CrushGrind Apollo Salt Mill, Stainless Steel, 150 mm
T&G CrushGrind Apollo Salt Mill, Stainless Steel, 150 mm
Price: 31.76

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the cost., 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Okay this is not the cheapest Salt grinder on the market but, having already bought the T&G pepper grinder I decided to splash out on the salt grinder. I filled it with coarse sea salt and it works very well delivering an even amount of finely ground salt. Excellent product.

Great compilation from one of the most influential bands in pop history. Sparks have influenced so many bands from the Pet Shop Boys to the Killers. Buy this cd and you will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the blues pioneers, 6 Jan 2014

This review is from: Texas Blues (Audio CD)
Great collection of music from one of the Blues pioneers. The sound quality on some of the recordings is a bit ropey but that is to be expected on recordings made in the first half of the 20c. That said this set represents good value for money. One gripe is the quality of the card sleeves the cd's come in, I had to glue two of the five sleeves myself as they came apart when I took the cd's out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robust and works well, 23 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to put together with clear instructions. Bell is loud but not annoyingly so. The unit that fits on to your door is plastic but should withstand even the most heavy handed postmen or delivery driver. The plug in bell unit is a great idea and saves the hassle of changing batteries every other month or so. For the money I am happy with this product.

1.0 out of 5 stars One half decent track., 30 Sep 2013

This review is from: MGMT (Audio CD)
I was so looking forward to this new album but unfortunately it doesn't live up to expectations. I don't have a problem with experimental music but this just disappears up its own you know where and quite frankly is best left there. Like many I suggest, totally loved the first album, grew to like the second album and regret wasting my money on this crock.
Directionless, meaningless and nothing that has not already been done better by others.

4.0 out of 5 stars lives up to expectations., 30 Sep 2013

This review is from: AM (Audio CD)
I bought this album on the strength of a appearance on Later with Jools Holland, the album does not disappoint. I can't
Judge this album alongside their others as this is the first I have listened to but, I like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 21 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Love this album set, I listened to all the albums in chronological order what a joy. The sound of ELO develops on each album from the first " experimental " albums to the full blown ELO sound that everybody is familiar with. All of the albums include some extra tracks and sleeve notes provided by Jeff Lynne. Only quibble that would have made it a perfect set the inclusion of Xanadu, I know it's not strictly an ELO album but it still has some great Lynne and co tracks on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made documentary., 22 April 2013

This review is from: Sound City [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
Dave Grohl certainly pulls it off with this well made documentary about Sound City studios. I watched it with a friend who's not as familiar with the bands featured in the film, but he found the technical process of making records interesting. The documentary is well paced and will be of interest to people who are not just into music. The archive footage is great and Grohl's passion for analogue recording techniques is evident. The extra's could have been longer, but overall it's a fantastic rockumentary. I hope Dave Grohl makes more films.

At this price I wasn't expecting the quality to be too good, but I am impressed with these knives. The knives have a good weight, don't have a handle that is either wood or plastic, so much easier to clean. Have yet to try on steak, but worked perfectly well on Pizza.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic album, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this cd after watching a brilliant BBC documentary about people living along the A5. One of the residents, a
Charming Jewish lady, loved the waltz from Jazz Suite No.2, I have also liked this piece of music and other works by
Shostakovich. Sadly the lady who had lived a full and interesting life died, the music she loved was played at her funeral service. It was incredibly moving even though I didn't know the woman.
I bought this album and have not been disappointed it includes Jazz Suite No.1 and No.2 and other works. The recording is warm and dynamic.
