4.0 out of 5 stars coldplay x & y cd, 3 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: X&Y (Audio CD)
I had this perviously in my collection and then foolishly let it go.It's about the "mid point" in coldplays development into one of the top bands of today.It's nice to have it back,like the return of an old friend.The only issue I had was that when the product arrived and I opened up the cd case it feel apart.So something to watch there

Absolute bias here.It's my favourite Genesis album.Some say it has a very commerciall sound,and indeed it may have.Yet it was where a lot of well known bands where heading back then.It just reflected the times whilst still managing to be a "stand out" sound.Check the end track the instumental "Brazilian" it shows both Phil Collins genius and discipline as a top drummer.The other nice thing was the price,a real bargain

You cannot quibble at all about the price for this product.In fact to attach any criticism to it at all is a difficult task.However it's a matter of personal choice with any "best of" and the bone of contention is always gonna be the track list.With a group like Genesis one persons particular favourite isn't necessarily anothers.Perhaps a little bit more featuring Peter Gabriel would have been nice.After all he was an integral part of the band at the outset.

This story is just pure nostalgia.It captures the innocence of a bygone era.If your thinking was it really like that back then.The answer is an absolute yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aztecs Camera Stray CD, 7 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stray (Audio CD)
A personal favourite (that I'd given away once) I don't know if it's everbodies Aztec's best loved album,but it's certainly mine."Over my head" would grace any jazz classics album.The strongest and opening track "the Crying Game" sets the tone for the rest of the album.
The product itself arrived in excellent idea and promptly.The seller here being of good reputation.

As convincing and as menacing the main character seems.You can't help thinking you've seen it done before and with a bit more weight to the script, it wouldn't do it any harm at all.In more than one sequence the meticulous Agent 47 comes across as a bit "Bournesque".It still has a few original goodies to offer us,mainly the blowing up of hotel rooms (soon there won't be anywhere left to stay when they go on these dangerous sorties).The ending leaves you thinking theres more to come but they haven't gotten round to deciding "where he goes from here"

5.0 out of 5 stars Catch Me If You Can, 5 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Leonardo DiCaprio (or is it Matt Damon as the close comparison is sometimes made) seems to really enjoy himself in this telling of a true story.As we view the main events of his life from over his shoulder.We see he wares out more lives than the preverbial cat.Closely pursued by the FBI character of Tom Hanks who always seems to be one step behind .At first with little good fortune and later with eventual persistence both catches and turns his man for "poacher to gamekeeper".Another notable performer is Christopher Walken as the main characters father.An extremely watchable and enjoyable movie you'll view again and again

I'd already purchased this product once for myself and bought it again for a relative as a birthday present.The product arrived in the same pristine condition and before it's due arrival date.The purchase price was very reasonable and the person it was sent to reports the picture reproduction is perfect.This series makes compelling viewing and with season 4 due to air this autumn,I will buy the box set on it's next realease date.

New Mens GOLA Navy White Lace Up Sport Trainers Sneakers Size Sz s 7 8 9 10 11

5.0 out of 5 stars Gola Navy/White trainers size 11, 5 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Gola brand is widely recognised as "retro".It's name has been around for years and it's easy to see why.Mostly I purchase Adidas trainers yet sadly many a time you have to buy the next biggest size (similarly with Puma).Which is difficult if you are one of the bigger sizes as they aren't always available.With Gola there is no such issue.These trainers fit perfectly, have the same style as the aforementioned competitors and perhaps most importantly are sold at a cheaper price.I used a very reputable supplier(who I wouldn't hesitate to use again) who shipped the item before it's due arrival date.Top score Gola well done !!!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Prophet [DVD] (2009) (DVD)
It's four stars only because Iv'e been a bit over fussy with it.There were times I thought the plot could have "hurried up" a bit.On reflection though the film needed time to develop and if I was to watch it again,I would revise the rating to a 5.It's a very well made movie,the main characters are strong personalities and very believable.I wouldn't say all the violence is necessary in it.Yet it's pertinent to the evolving story.Another reviewer said it came over as documentary style.I don't subscribe to that,rather it's seen through the eyes of the main character.This is where you feel that empathy with him.You fully understand what he does and why there is the need to do it.In other words you live those moments with him.Particularly his first year in prison,you can experience the desperation and hopelessness he feels.And at the end he only views his present circumstances in a businesslike manner.He had survived and conquered his demons.
