ELVIS PRESLEY: A LISTENER'S GUIDE
ELVIS PRESLEY: A LISTENER'S GUIDE
Price: £1.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the final word... how can it be?, 30 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as gushingly uncritical as one might expect... in fact, not gushingly uncritical at all. While Shane is obviously a fan, high praise is hard to discern, even with the fifties songs where it is fashionable. I wouldn't want Mr Brown's commentaries to influence a new fan, as each of us will (and each of us do) find our own favourites for our own individual reasons. Listen to the songs first.. all of them... then buy the book. Nicely written, and entertaining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and fluid, 30 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nicholas Nickleby (Kindle Edition)
Dickens at his Dickensest. Storytelling like we'll never see again. Amazing plotting and prose that is a beautiful balance between poetry and density. If you've never ever READ Dickens, start here.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not compatible with LG Televisions, 1 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had to return the item because it seems to be incompatible with LG TVs... LG TVs cannot combine the TV Speakers with an outside source (Analogue or Digital), at least on my model, as you have to choose one or the other. So, you get either no bass... or only bass. I did, however, plug it into my DVD player, and agree with some other reviewers that the bass seemed a little "muddy". Maybe I will save a little longer (this was the budget option) and at some point purchase a 2:1 Soundbar.

Nice looking machine. Once we we'd worked out how to use it, we were very pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 11 Sept. 2013
Discovered this after the event on Netflix... yes, it IS as good as they say. Along with Spaced, Father Ted, and The IT Crowd, the best sit-com in recent years. Easily.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it, 15 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Two in the picture... but you only get one. Also, so thin and substance-less that you may as well not have a pillow at all. Had to go and buy another.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bowie is back!, 15 Mar. 2013

This review is from: The Next Day (Audio CD)
Still absorbing it - but I've reached that point now when I'm humming these songs in my head when elsewhere. Bowie is back.
