The Me I Want to Be: Becoming God's Best Version of You
The Me I Want to Be: Becoming God's Best Version of You
Price: £4.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth reading., 2 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Now re-reading this from the start again. It manages to be fairly light in tone, but serious and helpful in content. Biblically based, but not preachy, it's a great tool for anyone looking for more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Now Reeeelax!!, 2 Dec. 2014

This review is from: Resurrection (MP3 Download)
Sons of Korah produce both some of the most soothing renderings of the Psalms that you could hope to hear, and capture - at other points - some of the anger, energy and reality of the psalmists' writings. For a band that produce such regular albums, the quality doesn't seem to wane throughout their works, and you get a good mix of themes and styles throughout.

Personally, I prefer to create playlists of the 'chilled' songs and the 'upbeat' ones from the various different albums, but the great thing is that I CAN do that! There's plenty of variety and all excellently produced.


The Garden (Deluxe Version)

Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars it's ok..., 2 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this after buying the two earlier albums, "Simple Things" and "When it falls", both of which are a staple in any self-respecting after-dinner murbley background music playlist. The Garden doesn't quite hit the same consistently high notes. There are several enjoyable tracks, but the whole album doesn't quite fit together as much as the other two.

So, if you're new to Zero 7, get one of the other albums first, then move onto this one, rather than the other way around.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's basically the Classic FM playlist!, 2 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With only a couple of ommissions ('The Lark Ascending' being perhaps the most obvious) and a couple of odd choices ('Sooner or Later'?!), this album is a fantasticly simple way of - for a cheap price - getting a vast proportion of the most popular chilled-out classics. In most cases, the choice of recordings is excellent and would make a great introduction to the classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds good., 2 Dec. 2014

For less than £8 these earbuds really can't be faulted. As you'd expect with the Sony brand, once you've selected the appropriate rubbery bit to fit your ears - the sound is balanced, at a good level, and the headphones are lightweight and comfortable to wear for long periods.

Obviously, as these are just earbuds, the bass response is limited by only having a 9mm driver, and every manufacturer will either use that to maximise 'thump', or to produce a balanced eq across the rest of the range. Thankfully, Sony have gone with the latter of these two options. So it's just right for my choice in music, but might disappoint the clubbers out there.

The cable and connector they come with are a bit cheap and plasticy, but for £8, what do you expect?! My previous two sets of buds have been higher range Sennheisers and both have failed in the cable/connector, so why not just pay less, get these little gems, then when they fail, get another set!

5.0 out of 5 stars No complaints so far, 2 Dec. 2014

Seems to work well. Simple setup (plug power into both units, put receiver where the remote can see it, put transmitter where the digi box can see it). The IR Reciever has a nice LED that flashes when you press a button on the remote, and the IR transmitter seems to 'blast' the IR with a decent spread and range.

5.0 out of 5 stars Matt's best yet., 15 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This album won two Grammy awards. And deserved them.
Every track is suitable for use in one church or another, but is also great to listen to yourself. Well played instrumentally, and a great mix of thumping praise and meditative worship. Fave track is 'Here for You'.

Cheap product, does what it says, produces a dim nightlight with a mildly orange glow.
This may not be bright enough for some people, but at this price, just buy two!

5.0 out of 5 stars Energy in musical form., 15 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In my opinion, this vies with Nothing is Sound as the best Switchfoot album ever. And, given that it comes with "Hello Hurricane (Live)" as basically a freebie, it's an incredibly cheap way of getting a lot of brilliant music in one go.

Switchfoot are a very talented band. Jon Foreman is a brilliant lyricist and front man, and every time I listen to this album, I'm inspired. So, can't argue, great album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like, but..., 15 Feb. 2013

There's nothing more invaluable in Spiritual life than listening to the voice of God.

This is a really good book to read and understand how God speaks to us. However, the only But I have, is that there's not an amazing amount about HOW to hear God's whispers, just a lot saying that it's really important that you do! In some ways then, it might not be the right book for someone wondering why God seems silent at times, but if you're on the way out of that valley it might be exactly what you need to read right now!
