4.0 out of 5 stars Works on Nexus 7, 15 Aug. 2012
It's quite a tight fit, though, so I'm not sure that I'd want to be plugging it in and out regularly.

5.0 out of 5 stars So, so sweet, 13 Aug. 2006
This album is fantastic. To be fair there a couple of fillers, but the good songs are so good as to more than make up for it.

In a parallel universe Suspended From Class would have been a number one single.

And in the song Keep It Clean the line "You've taken to phoning my house when you're drunk, confessing all your love..." is one of my favourite lyrics and favourite pieces of singing ever. It is the ultimate heartbreak song.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still great, but their least best, 13 Aug. 2006
I'd advise curious newcomers to check out the group's first two albums first. With John Henderson's departure they've definitley something in the charming boy/girl vocals of the earlier records.

With a more countrified sounds it now comes across as more of a Traceyanne solo album. That's not necessarily a bad thing, just not quite the Camera Obscure we had grown to love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply fantastic!!!, 13 Aug. 2006
Recommended to everybody. This is just ridiculously lovable, made with the kind of care and craft that is almost unheard of in any other sitcom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pure cheese!, 13 Aug. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The problem with the Jaws series is that there's not a lot you can do with a shark other than having it hang around a beach and attack people from time to time.

Jaws 2 is a decent effort as far as sequels go. It's a bit of a rehash, but has some nice set pieces and by focussng on Brody's paranoia adds something to the characterisation as well.

Jaws 3 is my least favourite. It has little connection to the other films, and was a poor attempt to breathe some life into series that had run its course (it was released in 3D if I remember rightly).

Jaws - The Revenge is simply one of the worst films ever made. And I meant that in a good way! It's got Michael Caine at his worst, and the suggestion that sharks somehow have a personal vendatta against the Brody family. It's as trashy as hell, but well worth a chuckle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little device - shocking battery life, 4 Mar. 2006
Having used this for a couple of weeks I would fully recommend it. It's small, it's inexpensive, it's got a screen, with a reasonable interface, sound quality is great, you can store plenty of songs on it, in several formats.
Playlist support is virtually non-existant, but overall for the money I wouldm't think twice.
However, I should say I would be fascinated to learn how Samsung came about their 13 hour battery life quote. In real world use I reckon about four hours is closer to the mark. It doesn't affect the way I use it, as I can keep it charged on my PC at work, but any potential buyers should be aware of this very real limitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freaks being the operative word..., 3 July 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fearless Freaks [DVD] (DVD)
This look back over the career of the Flaming Lips is essential for all fans of the band, but might have interest for music fans in general.
The first half is amazing at it looks at the background of the band. Most of their families are either on crack or in jail (or both), there is a fine line between hope and despair in small town America.
The second half is more disjointed, but full of equally fascinating moments. Seeing band member Steven Drozd talking about and taking heroin on camera is about as shocking and explicit as it gets, yet despite the gritty content the film always retains a certain joyousness.
The music, of course, is amazing.
