5.0 out of 5 stars Flo Sparkles, 5 July 2015
There is nothing strange about this album, Flo reminds me of someone else but can't think who.This is a sort of slightly folk infused soul with some very pretty tunes.The backing consists of strings & piano,you won't be throwing any shapes to this.Flo swoops & soars her way through each song,it's a bit Kate Bush but that's not a bad thing.
An impressive debut.

2.0 out of 5 stars So What!!, 4 July 2015
This review is from: Coming Home (Audio CD)
I did not get on with this album at all,,in fact it just an annoyed me When it comes to soul albums this "oldy worldy" approach seems a bit cynical,especially for a debut.Yes it's all pleasant enough but its been done to death & it's wearing very very thin.

This is a cynical cop out as soul albums go.

Full bodied synth infused soul funk,much better than his previous album which seemed a bit of a mess.Good tunes throughout & this is beautifully produced,very good.

This should be 2.5 stars because i couldn't decide which way to go.There is no doubt that Mika has a really good understanding on what makes good pop.There are some good tunes on here & it feels more mature.Here on in lies the problem, the songs sound more mature but the lyrics are toe curling.The whole album is very very tame with the music lacking any sort of depth,it's almost Hammond organ on a cruise ship stuff.
Good tunes,dreadful lyrics & the musical equivalent of a metaphorical cheap tee shirt,i could spit peas through it.

One of the best home invasion films I've seen for ages & certainly one of the most uncompromising.This follows a family of three as they move into their new home,the plan is to have a family night in with champagne & maybe a film.The daughter who is 18,has a date but mum says no but dad says yes she can go.They suddenly find themselves under attack from three masked & entirely dressed in black men.

What follows is an incredibly intense ordeal,especially for mum & daughter,first they are forced to hand over bank cards & pin numbers.Dad is taken & forced to drive to a cashpoint to extract the maximum on each card.But it's what happens back at the house that really makes the film,as the mum & daughter find thier own private hell.
The daughter steals the film with an extraordinary horror performance,one of THE most convincing pictures of human terror I've seen on film.There's plenty of tension as various people visit the house & one of the invaders becomes more unhinged.The horror element comes towards the end but isn't ridiculously ott,it is brutally brilliant.

A disappointing ghost story,as a group of friends investigate the death of their friend.Using an ouija board to try & make contact,they find themselves delving into the dark history of the house where she died.
This is bog standard stuff,it's got the usual creeping round in dark places with vein attempts at scaring you.Predictable & lacking any sort of tension,it doesn't work as a horror & is a lame duck as ghost stories go.

This review is from: blinkbox Music (App)
Useless! Tried several times to sign up,tried two email addresses but kept telling me they were already being used or,maybe I'd already signed up.This is impossible as I've had nothing to do with blink box in the past.It also wanted me to get an update straight away but that didn't work either.Very very annoying when the basic stuff on apps do not work.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow Boat, 14 Jun. 2015
Good but nowhere near great, recent offerings from Freddie Gibbs & Cannibal X are much better.An album that feels it never gets out of first gear,with a minimalist approach to the backdrops it's a long,slow haul.
