5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Effective, 5 Dec. 2010
Just plugged it into my Mac, told Time Machine to backup to it and that was that. There just incase my Mac dies on me. Reliable, fast, simple. Don't buy if you want portability. As a backup drive it's a brilliant and cheap solution.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff, 10 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quick, easy to use and fully OS X/iDevice integrated online storage and sycing. Plus a brilliant email domain and it works with Windows. My only criticism is that the iDisk can sometimes be slow.
I fully recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars It grows on you., 6 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Suicide Season (Audio CD)
I bought this album on recommendation from a friend. I was reluctant to do so having heard their previous album and listening to something that reminded me of someone on a motorbike running over a duck.
Now I have to say, the majority of the tracks have some sort of structure in this album, which is always a bonus. The lyrics (once you have read the lyric book to tell what Ollie Sykes is singing) are rather amusing and witty, and there are some actual guitar riffs this time instead of just brutal strumming of strings.

I didn't actually like this album much at first, but it grows on you, once you become accustomed to the tone and singing style, you start noticing more and more things in their songs, and not just the noise provided before.

Now not all of the songs are hits, the first track almost put me off the entire album, and still does. But Chelsea Smile, Death Breath and Diamonds Aren't Forever are totally belting tracks.

Stay unique BMTH, I'm beginning to enjoy your works.

2.0 out of 5 stars No where near the first album..., 6 Jun. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crystal Castles [II] (Audio CD)
Okay. I'll put this as honestly as possible. There is experimental music, and then there is pure rubbish. And this is pure rubbish. The first 4 tracks are okay, and then the rest of the album just drags on, like a very slow and painful death.

I'm sorry Crystal Castes, but go back to the Alice Practice days.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hey, I like it!, 5 Jun. 2010
This review is from: New Old Songs (Audio CD)
Just as long as you don't listen to it as a Limp Bizkit album, its got some rather good non-bizkity tunes.
It's an obvious cash in, but I don't mind re-mixies, and I think it's been executed very well indeed.
I say that as a Limp Bizkit fan, from their first album to their latest.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor..., 2 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Immersion (MP3 Download)
It seems like they tried to recreate what made the last album good. And they have failed. This is a poor attempt Pendulum. Either that, or you have cashed into the samey samey predictable pop stuff like many bands and artists appear to be doing now.

Instead of buying this, buy 'Join the Q' by The Qemists. Its a hell of a lot better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over Pendulum...., 2 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Join The Q (MP3 Download)
This album is jam packed full of heavy beats, face melting electronic riffs and lots of bass. If you didn't like Pendulum's most recent pile of crap, I fully recommend this. In fact, i recommend it even if you did like Pendulum's Immersion.

This will tear your face off. The Qemists have lots of potential left. I cannot wait for their next album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Daughters Self Entitled., 24 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Daughters (Audio CD)
The Daughters! 3rd attempt at an album, and there is less than half the original band. None the less, this album has really grown on me. The guitar parts are much simpler and less experimental, and the songs are much more structured than before. It seems that Alexis Marshall has figured out the concept of a verse and a chorus. They have tried a much more mainstream approach to their music, but also have the quirky guitar and vocal parts that still makes it a Daughters album.

This album has a much richer and fuller sound than pervious albums, that often sounded empty and chaotic. I shall miss this band, for this is said to be their last album. This album is a good one, but for the real Daughters! experience, buy Hell Songs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear, What happened guys?, 23 May 2010
This review is from: Underclass Hero (Audio CD)
Sum 41 used to be great. The 'Does This Look Infected?' album is totally amazing, and every song is a pop punk hit. But this Underclass Hero is just a plain attempt to try and fit in with Green Day. It's such as shame, because Green Day suck.

Sum 41 deserve to be axed after this terrible piece of work. Seriously guys, shape up. Stop this mummy's boy, faux green day rubbish. Start singing about zombies again please.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'm not too sure..., 8 May 2010
This review is from: Fever (Audio CD)
I mean, it sounds more like My Chemical Romance than Bullet For My Valentine. At least it's better than Scream Aim Fire, because that album was the definition of suckage, but this comes no where near The Poison or their 5 Track Self Entitled.
