5.0 out of 5 stars Computer says, splendid., 7 Jun. 2008
An album chock full of smashing tunes, hooky melodies and super sounds of the future, probably. Figurine seem to be a little regarded treasure - do yourself a favour and obtain some of their stuff; it is great! On My First UFO, admittedly, the geezer singin scores 11 on the campometer when the song comes back in and they are talking, which perhaps lends credence to accusations of cheesyness, but this is a excellent album d'electronica. If you like this, you'll adore Heartfelt. An essential must-have you can't do without.

5.0 out of 5 stars Set phasers on phab, 6 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Heartfelt [Us Import] (Audio CD)
Despite my cheesy review title, this Heartfelt elpee is aptly named and not at all cheesy, though others have considered Figurine as being so. I can see how it might be considered cheesesque, but there's a much greater depth to these tunes than that. These are, simply, some wonderful pieces of work, with some excellent sounds, the voices are so right for the tenor and tone of this music, and talk about a grower... If you like your electronica pure and simple yet effective, tronic but not cold, acknowledging of its heritage yet bang up to date and, IMHO, 'relevant', then check out this band. Their previous opus, Transportation+Communication=Love, is also excellent. I heard Heartfelt first, so perhaps I am biased.. but Heartfelt is great!

This album is exquisite, beautiful, wonderful. A truly lovely piece of work. It sounds like Goldfrapp are developing as artistes and they're playing stuff they're much more into. You can't really compare it to their other albums; Black Cherry is a sublime opus that stands on its own. I can't say how good this record is; it's just great! If you like Goldfrapp, you might like Broken Social Scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very excellent, 27 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Bee Hives (Audio CD)
This is an interesting, lovely and musically diverse album, with some mellow tracks, some uptempo tracks, some inbetweeny. Like much of BSS, it's difficult to categorise ... which is nice. One of the tracks even sounds like Yes. Honestly! (This is just about the highest praise I can give.) Whatever it is they've put in the water over in Canada (eh?), it's working, as there is a plethora of brilliant bands; Arcade Fire, Besnard Lakes, BSS, Most Serene Republic, Rush (!!) and loads more. Probably. More than makes up for the collective, global psychological trauma of Dion. Well done Canada for being better then the baboon-for-a-president United States. Vive la Canada!

Dvd ~ Dave Kilminster

3.0 out of 5 stars ...er..., 6 Jan. 2008
Dave Kilminster is obviously a skilled guitar player and there is a lot to learn from this DVD. However, what facilitates the sound produced is somewhat dependent on a decent set up; I have a reasonable guitar but a cheap little amp, so when I'm playing the licks, they don't sound anywhere near as good as the DVD - in terms of quality - and this is a little frustrating. But that's not Dave's fault! Unfortunately, Dave is a bit too 'laid back' (albeit self-consciously so - why have sunglasses in the TV studio?) and he says 'er...' almost as many times as he plays notes and along with his regular claims as to what he will 'probably do next' (and then does it) makes for stilted instruction that doesn't flow well and quickly becomes annoying. On the whole, good content but not great delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic - in all three senses of the word., 7 Sept. 2007
Five and a half stars for this. TDTESS is a great film; entertaining, well acted - Michael Rennie is stone cold superb, he totally makes the part and the Mom, the kid and the Prof are all good; good direction - it keeps you hooked from the start; music by Hermann; the pace is spot on and the story and premise convincing. This is one of the best films ever with a message more pertinent than ever. Buy it for someone and then borrow it - you'll want your own copy. Apparently there's a remake in the pipeline due 2008, but even if it's great, this film is a tremendous achievement. Nice one, team TDTESS.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hello? Amazon?, 12 July 2007
I have written to Amazon twice regarding P&P asking them to explain the outrageous and unrealistic cost, specifically asking them NOT to just say, 'it's policy' or words to that effect. Predictably, that's precisely what they did do. No explanation whatsoever offered beyond the 'policy' clause, suggesting that it evens out in the end. I pointed out that the vast majority of my purchase history in this context far from warranted the postal costs. They did not address that particular point. I think Amazon is great, but this issue infuriates me. It's nothing to do with the other sellers, but if it was at all realistic, then other vendors' P&P would be equally disproportionate - but they're not, are they? Who the hell else charges what Amazon charges for a 1.6g item the size of a stamp? I refuse to purchase this item from Amazon if there is any alternative that comes close to the price.
Kingston - do you appreciate the unfair negative feedback for your (probably perfectly good) product?
Kudos to Amazon if they post this review; I just hope they don't charge me £5.50 for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweed as pie!, 12 Jun. 2007
This review is from: The Concretes (Audio CD)
Not all the tracks are great on this long player, but those that are, which is most of them, are brilliant. The vocals are wonderful, the music is excellent, the mood encourages one to indulge in feeling blue if that's how it is for you right now, but in a good and healthy way; this is a gem. If you like Camera Obscura you might like this. If you like King of Woolworths, you might like Her Space Holiday as well as the Concretes.

You Can't Hurry Love and Say Something new are particularly fab.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just great., 8 Jun. 2007
This review is from: The Young Machines (Audio CD)
Four point 7 stars for this, there are some excellent tunes and amazing sounding music, some really good stuff on here. I couldn't imagine Bianchi's voice appealing to a lot of people, but when it works with a track, it's fine and after all, it's all about the entity, the finished product and there are some superb sounds on this. Get the Japanese issue if you can, four extra tracks and some superb sounds on this. Oh, I said that one already.
