5.0 out of 5 stars A new twist on the gothic ghost story, 23 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Within Wet Walls (Kindle Edition)
Atmospheric and beautifully written, It is difficult to give a detailed review without spoilers. Suffice to say that in this short book Lily Childs adds an excellent twist to the classic gothic ghost genre by giving an insight to the thoughts and motivations of the spirits in this story. Recommended without reservation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Six Year wait!!, 1 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Cuckooland (Audio CD)
There's something about Robert Wyatt's haunting & mournful voice that makes me feel happy and sad at the same time, and on Cuckooland, his latest album, his voice is as wisftfully compelling as ever, while the material is as good as anything he has ever released.
For those who don't know Robert Wyatt don't expect an easy ride - his songs are unusual quirky multi-layered affairs that bely their inital simplicity, although the subject matter on this album, such as the atomic bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki, are often quite dark.
Clocking in at 75 minutes (with a 30 second gap halfway thru "for those with tired ears to pause..."), Wyatt is supported on this CD by, amongst others, his partner Alfreda Benge, Annie Whitehead, Dave Gilmour, Paul Weller and the excellent Gilad Atzmon whose contributions add to the jazz tinged soundscape without ever leaving us with any doubt that it's Wyatt's album - and it's a cracker!
I'm only on my second listening and I'm already hooked and I sure this CD will reward constant relistening as the various layers unfold. Recommended to Wyatt fans and as good a place as any for the curious to start !

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!, 23 July 2001
This review is from: The Green Man (Audio CD)
No fan of Roy Harper could fail to be impressed with his latest offering, which up there with the best of his output from a long and varied career.
The CD is predominately solo and acoustic with support from Jeff Martin on a variety of instruments including some excellent slide guitar.
Stand out tracks for me are "The Green Man", "The Monster" and "Rushing Camelot"
Buy it now, and then go out and buy the rest of the back catalogue and see the man on tour!
