5.0 out of 5 stars I had a pair of these for 5 years!, 24 Dec. 2010
I have used a pair of these for over 5 years and they are still going strong. I use them nearly everyday on the way to work/university and they are a joy to use i can get full bass on thease even out of an ipod! They are loud, durable and and very confortable. anyone who like me has to commute everywhere everyday should get themselves a pair of these as they would suit that style of use brilliantly!
shortcommings = cable can be a bit on the short side. rubber around the ear can crack and perish but this does take alot of time and abuse for this to happen.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed, 30 May 2010
This review is from: Immersion (Audio CD)
Pendulum have completely changed since the the days of Hold your colour and the the release of valut on ram records. since these days pendulum have turned into a screachy rock drum and bass group playing and producing the same stuff all the way through in silico and all the way through this album. For any dnb fan pendulum's debut album is up with some of the best like bad company's book of the bad, optical ed rush's charmeleon and goldie timeless. since this first album of pure dnb i have been dissapointed and feel let down. Their first album will always go down as a classic but there others i wont even download.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best example of dub., 20 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Untrue (Audio CD)
I cannot believe that some people have given this 2 stars, easily the best album to come from a dub artist ever.
Ill start at the song that forced me to but the album, Endorphin,i came across this while searching dub tunes on youtube, and i coudln't beleive what i was hearing not since the early FSOL album Lifeforms have i been so moved by a tune simply breath taking is the bass accompanied by the vocals will have you repeating the song over and over again.
From this i puchased the album, and foudn the rest of it to follow suit, the simple beats the drowning basslines are perfect, reminding me of FSOL/Massive attack so much i couldnt believe it. the whole album is a work of art and a simple must buy for anyone interested in Dub, Dubplate, Drum and bass, Techno or Ambiant House/Trance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 3rd cd average cd1 and 2, 19 July 2008
cd3 is fantatsic old school drum and bass at its best with particular favorites including, Remac and Lewi - Ricky and Dj SS - Black. but cd1 and 2 do kind of let the whole thing down a bit cd2 is better than cd1 apart from Commix - Talk To Frank and Dj Hazard - Machete cd1 is rubbish, whereas on cd2 there are soem stunnig mixes and songs such as Jonny L - Oh Yeah and jonny L's amazing tune Harry. But and this really annoys me when the cd track listing is wrong on the cd J magik and Wickerman's - Crazy world is listed but not on there instead replaced by the annoying 3rd degree burn by friction remix??? but apart from that it is a solid listening and good fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ace!!!, 5 Jun. 2008
Friction smashes it with sum quick drum and bass while fabio basslines you out the building with liquid drum and bass. sheer briliance i have all the dnb arena albums until now i thought the ten year anniversery cd was the best with andy c and grooverider but i genuinly think this is better!!!
you have to buy this!

2.0 out of 5 stars so poor its annoying, 13 May 2008
This review is from: In Silico (Audio CD)
so oys not drum and bass massivly dissapointed considerign their last album was one of the best drum and bass albums ever with wall to wall beats and bass, but this music is just annoying its not even good new metal loud screeches of electric guitars mixed in with some bass is not music. out of this album i only like about 2 tracks and thats becuase the vaguly remind me of pendulums last album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Game i have ever played, 5 May 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
in previous gta's i used to only do the missions when the island i was on got boring (i found it far more entertaining to drive around shooting everything and everyone) but this game i instantly was drawn to the storyline and the missions involved in the game!! bugs what biugs my version has never frozen nor crashed it loads extremly quick and doesnt even clicth (i fear its the old xbox crew that are saying that it does freeze) the graphics are awesome, and the gamplay is even better the onyl downside is the lack of decent radio stations. liberty city stories with msx98 was the best radio station about, on this game however the music is poor but there area few goodens.

3.0 out of 5 stars nothing like the original book., 5 April 2008
This review is from: I, Robot [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
how many people have actually read Isaac Asimov's I,Robot, because if you had you would soon realise just how poor the story in this film is. The book itself a series of short stories about the evolution of a robots mind to start to feel emotions towards others and about themselves, the film magically starts with a robot who can feel feelings, with willsmith runnign around trying to prrove to everyone that this robeot does??? and then for some super computer to make all the robots evil im sorry but i am sure that Asimov didnt intend this when he wrote the book in 1940!
