5.0 out of 5 stars Chill Out in the Blue Room, 12 July 2013
This review is from: The Blue Room (Audio CD)
This album seems to have had a mixed reception from reviewers. To be fair, I first listened to it in the car on my commute to work and it didn't capture me in the same way that Half The Perfect World or Dreamland initially did. However, after listening to as a wind-down after a stressful day my opinion has changed vastly.

When most music nowadays is engineered for ipod, compressed and with all instruments competing to be heard within the sound-stage, The Blue Room is an absolute masterclass in arrangement and production. This really is a superb album - a very welcome interpretation of some classic songs. Madeleine's voice sounds as good as ever and the balance between vocals and supporting musicianship is absolutely first class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Excellent Lego Technic Kit, 26 April 2013
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I bought this to extend my growing collection of Lego Technic kits. Two model options are available, a speedway and a moto-cross bike. Both have excellent and clear instructions and are buildable within an hour or two. I think the moto-cross bike is the better detailed model with its chain driven two cylinder engine. At £24.99, its well worth the asking price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value, 4 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a bit wary of buying something so cheap but have found this to be reliable and pretty decent data transfer rates for SD and MicroSD cards. Unlike other similar products, the reader seats the cards well and its slim size doesn't foul adjacent USB slots, at least with MicroSD cards. At £3.99 it is a bit of a bargain.

= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
The artwork for this jigsaw superbly captures the elegance of the Spitfire and is well printed on a strong cardboard backing. The puzzle is rewarding without being excessively challenging (which is a bonus for me). Just the thing for some quiet time on a grotty day in January and well worth the £8.99 price tag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lego VW Camper Van, 29 Dec. 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Priced at £79.99 when reviewed, this kit is absolutely amazing. The attention to detail such as moving gas, brake and clutch pedals, engine compartment and the interior of the camper make this an incredible kit. As usual, Lego instructions are very clear and easy to follow which is just as well as this kit took the best part of a day to build. Recommended more as a collector's piece than a toy, this really is the best offering from Lego I have seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chocks Away!, 27 Dec. 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Priced at £3.99 when purchased, this is a fun little Lego kit with 65 pieces and taking 10 minutes or so to build. Supplied with clear instructions, this is easy enough for most children to do whilst grown ups can get on with building the bigger Lego Creator Sopwith Camel kit. Contrary to the previous review, the pieces do fit together properly.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My main interest in buying was because of the novelty of stories being set in my home town and anything else in terms of content, readability or character development was a bonus. Having read this and the Good Son, I have stumbled across a great author who really knows how to write crime. Yes there's darkness and violence but characters are well developed, compelling and believable. Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Swing Patrol, 3 Nov. 2012

This review is from: Swing Patrol (Audio CD)
Tape Five do it again, blending new and old without sounding twee or contrived. Crisp production highlights the talent of brass and woodwind musicians and well matched vocals. The album flows well from start to finish with references to Glen Miller in Slow Serenade, Louis Prima in Bunga Book and hints of the Bond theme in the baseline of I Spy You. For me the vocals in Tintarella di Luna make this the standout track on an album that really is a worthy follow up to Tonight Josephine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Caravan Palace, 26 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Panic (Audio CD)
This is Caravan Palace's second album, bought on a whim after coming across some tracks on YouTube. Label it electro-swing or nu-jazz if you like, Panic really is a fantastic album. Modern and retro blended together with an unmistakable French feel throughout, infuriatingly catchy and toe-tapping.


Bossa For A Coup [Us Import]
Bossa For A Coup [Us Import]

5.0 out of 5 stars Bossa for a Coup, 11 Aug. 2012
Smooth, effortless and stylish, Bossa for a Coup is an absolute delight from the first spin. Electronica blended with a Latin American base, the music ranges from the laid back Cancun to the toe tapping Bossa for Coup and everything inbetween. My only slight niggle is that the bhangra based Taxi to Bombay, although a fantastic track, sounds a little out of place in the album. Highly recommended as an mp3 download or a CD purchase at amazon.com.
