5.0 out of 5 stars Cameo.. New Wave Funk Classics, 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 12" Collection & More (Audio CD)
This is a great collection. No glaring omissions and the cd sounds great.
Wonderful 12" collection of an innovative funky group, with a very distinctive personality all of their own. Some tracks are more traditional funk, but others have an 80's new wave/rock touch..to great effect. Cameo continue to stand tall, in a league all of their own. Recommended listening pleasure :)

Enjoyable movie from Jess Franco.. if you can take the terrible pop music and eighties hair styles. Inspired by Eyes Without A Face. With a bigger budget than Franco usually had, it does feel rather more conventional than the typical Franco movie. That said it entertains solidly throughout its running time. Best thing for me.. is Brigitte Lahaie who steals the show whenever she's on screen.

Genius or hack ? Jess Franco has been called both in the past. Truthfully I think he is at times both. He has made a handful of really lovely films.. nothing beyond "Faceless" for me. Of the two movies here.. Tender Flesh is the better; but both are truly terrible. Both are essentially very unfunny, frat-boy mentality comedies with no sense of any artfull intention. If ever proof was needed that movies shot on video simply do not work artistically.. look no further. If you want to sample Franco's good work.. stick to his 60's & 70's films, or Faceless for the sublime Brigitte Lahaie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice product, 20 Jan 2013

I have been using this opener regularly for the past couple of months. I like it a lot. It cuts cleanly, not leaving any sharp edges, and feels like it should last a few years.

It does require firm effort to snap it onto the can; and for people with weakness or pain in their left wrist/hand, I would not recommend this.

If you do buy this, I recommend choosing the free package and postage option. I did and received my opener, quite adequately packaged, in 3 days. I say this because greedy Amazon are charging 6 package and postage !!! More than the cost of the opener !! I see Amazon has implemented costly p&p on a few different low cost items, so do be aware of this sneaky practice.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid like the plague, 3 Dec 2012

This is the most tempremental player I have ever had.

Frequently locks when playing and has to be reset.

Also has a habit of reverse loading tracks: so when loading a 10 track album say.. the tracks play in reverse order, with track 10 first, then track 9, track 8 etc.

Sound quality is only okay.

Worse of all, it only lasted 15 months before developing play-back problems rendering it unusable.

Deeply regret buying this.

I won't be buying a Creative mp3 player again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not their best.., 13 Jun 2012

This review is from: Third (MP3 Download)
So ANO are back with what they are calling their third album. I guess that makes Cave Recordings an EP. Third reminded me of Cave Recordings.. but not as good. Third lacks the originality of the previous ANO releases. This offering is more straight ahead garage rock rather than being anything approaching psychedelic. What I missed the most was the whimsical moments that I had come to appreciate ANO for. It's not a bad listen by any means.. even if at times it does sound like it was recorded in one session in a cave rather than in a studio. ANO have recorded in their cave before so this may be the case again. Hopefully next time out ANO will be more trippy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true classic, 15 Nov 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a crime that Eddie Hazel is not known in the same breath as Carlos Santana, Jimi Hendrix or Snowy White. His playing on Maggot Brain is heart-breaking. If anything, the alternative version is probably even better. This cd does not cost the earth, and the price is worth it for these two tracks alone. If like me, you believe that instruments are actually played from the heart and soul, you will not be dissapointed. Go ahead.. you'll be all the richer having this cd in your collection. Eddie Hazel you are a legend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well, it's better than Educated Horses, 12 July 2011
But does it deserve the Hellbilly Deluxe title ? Emphatically.. no. The original Hellbilly Deluxe sounded like a musician having fun and trying to make some good music. This album just sounds like Rob Zombie is out of ideas. I also really hate the practice that some artists engage in.. in releasing an album, then a few months later releasing a special edition with a few more tracks. Shame on you Rob for trying to exploit your die hard fanbase. I really think Rob should call it quits on his musical career and leave us with the sweet memories of White Zombie and the first two solo records. Stick to making movies Rob. As a director you are hit and miss.. but at least you seem to have passion in what you're doing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Broken in 5 months !!!, 28 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this 28 Jan 2011. Been using it heavily but with safety in mind. 4th August 2011.. stopped working. The song folder MUSIC, where all the music is stored, cannot be opened. I get the message.. "Music folder is corrupted !!" Cannot delete the music folder to start again, so I now have a failed device after 5 months !!!! Definately won't be buying Archos again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh Dear, 26 Jun 2010
This review is from: Night Work (Audio CD)
After two great albums, the Scissor Sisters finally drop the ball. Night Work is not a bad album, but compared to the first two, it is a crushing disappointment. I guess they wanted to move away from past influences and go another way. What we get is a largly 80's sounding album. Goldfrapp tried the same thing on their new album and only just pulled it off. The one saving grace is Fire With Fire which is one of the Sisters very finest songs. I'm looking forward to album 4 and am hoping for a return to classic Sister Sisters.
