5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff!, 22 Mar 2014
Cracking track choices, quality productions - get some groove in your life :)

Ps. Not sure which tracks the critics leaving comments here are listening to, but they sound top drawer to me :)

1.0 out of 5 stars NO PROTECTION FOR HARD DRIVES, 17 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
BE WARNED - One of the below reviewers is correct - the instruction manual to this item specifies clearly that this item offers protection against fire for documents but INSUFFICIENT FIRE PROTECTION FOR HARD DRIVES etc. I wrote to the company about this and they sent an evasive reply, refusing to answer my question directly in writing. This 'media chest' will not protect your hard drives etc. and the description is badly misleading. I have informed Amazon of this and am awaiting their response.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why no vinyl pressing?!?!?, 30 Jun 2013
This review is from: The Art of Love & War (Audio CD)
Why no vinyl pressing? This beautiful record is crying out for some black magic! The only one of her albums that you can only get on CD. Odd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Radio - excellent technical support, 20 May 2012
I am the owner of a Pure Radio Classic for several years now, and I just wanted to praise the out of warranty customer service experience I just had - I'm guessing its something they pride themselves on.

I can recommend these guys as a company that won't give you the cold shoulder once out of warranty, and sent me a free replacement charger when my radio had a problem charging.

Good company. Great radio. Recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Get the £30 Meinl bag instead, 5 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Rather than getting this bag, I'd recommend spending £5 more and getting the superior model which has a shoulder strap and better padding too :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this one - not the MSTBB1 model, 5 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great bag. I originally ordered the MSTBB1 model but was disappointed to find it didn't have a shoulder strap so returned it in exchange for this model, and was pleased to find it also seems to have better padding too :-)

3.0 out of 5 stars ESSENTIAL, 16 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely essential - bigger, clearer sound and all the volume you could want.

Shame on Apple for apparently not leaving a loophole to get round the EU regulations (European ipods have a ridiculously low volume limit built in) to have a proper volume level in the first place.

One big gripe and the reason it didn't get more stars - how could they not put a lock/hold switch on the remote control?!? Even when you have your ipod controls locked/held the remote controls are still active, so you need to unplug the amp unit to be sure.

Grrrrrr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, 19 May 2009
This review is from: Eva Contro Eva (Audio CD)
A sad and/but sublimely beautiful album; wonderful multi-instrumental arrangements with some traditional instrumentation; great sound balance, group dynamics, and that voice..

An unusual (unique?) acoustic album for her I'm told, with the rest of the stuff that I've heard more bolshy electric indie-type stuff (I prefer this). I listen to a lot a jazz/brazilian stuff and this is recorded with that kind of care and acoustic sensitivity.

I'm not an Italian speaker so I largly enjoy the music and the sounds in their own right rather than the lyrics, though what I do get sounds so intriguing. I'm told by Italian friends that they are strange, poetic, archaic sorts of Italian evoking scenes from traditional Sicilian culture, and reflecting some of the tensions between that conservative, traditional culture and her own sexual identity.

One of my very favourite albums for those melancholy light-and-dark moods. Buy and enjoy... x.
