5.0 out of 5 stars The good part to that is they generally turn out to ..., 1 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very occasionly I get an album and the first couple of plays I think I'm not sure, well this was one of them times. The good part to that is they generally turn out to be the best albums I have.
Didn't think Oasis were that much cop, they were alright, If Liam hadn't been the main singer, and it had been Noel it would of been oh so different. Best thing Noel has ever done was going solo. He was the talent behind them. And lets hope NO REUNIONS!!! Noels much better than Oasis ever were. In fact years ago he described himself as being like John Lennon, well with this second High Flying Birds album I would say John Lennon would wanna be like Noel. The Beatles were very good, don't get me wrong, but Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds are so much better..
Miss this album at your peril.

2.0 out of 5 stars Most blatant US Propaganda Movie EVER!!!, 12 Aug. 2014
Watched this film and couldn't believe what I was watching. Its meant to be a true story, US propaganda more like. Open leg fracture, (Thats where the bone patrudes out) no worries!!, just rip my bone off and carry on as if nothing as happened, keep on running straight for a cliff and smash my head on the rocks below, not a problem, there heads are solid. Get shot in the skull and all over my body, yeah whatever, bee stings hurt more. Some how its just not believeable in the slighest. If you like horror you will probably like this film, Its a gore fest. I suppose it is worth a watch, but treat it purely as fiction.
Also i would like to note, I have nothing against the US at all, but I'm not that stupid as to believe that humans, crack US Forces, can do the things to there bodies that are depicted in this film. I served in the UK Army, and we had the pleasure of being involved in a joint exercise with the US. They were more interested in the Burger Vans and posing like Gym Queens, than being soldiers, so this film to me is very unbelievable.

Secret York: Seven City Walks

5.0 out of 5 stars For anybody wanting to know amazing facts about the City of York, 16 Mar. 2014
I recently visited York and was wanting to go on a sightseeing tour of all the wonders it as to offer. Thankfully i came across this book, and me and my wife took our Kindle with us and had an amazing time, the maps were very clear and extremely helpful and we never got lost at any point, which is unusual in such an old city. The secrets about various buildings and places bought the history to life. We had time to do 2 of the walks, but we are definitely returning to York (With my Kindle) and are looking forward to finishing off the rest of the walks featured in this book. Best of all, this book worked out a lot cheaper than paying for a guided tour, and we can use it again whenever we come back.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is Roger's Best Solo Album so far, 11 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Fun On Earth (Audio CD)
This album is absolutly brilliant. It's got a feel just like his first solo album Fun in Space. The sound quality is spot on, the songs are awesome, without doubt it ranks with some of the best work he has ever done, not that what he has done in the past is not great. I always used to think that the songs Roger sang on in Queen albums were among the best.
The album opens with a riff busting One Night Stand, and it makes you feel that its a continuation from Fun in Space, followed by track after track of riff and guitar enfused brilliance.
Another stand out track his "I am a Drummer in a Rock n Roll band", takes you back to the days when Queen ruled the World.
If you have never listened to a Roger Taylor solo album i highly recommend you purchase this album, you will not be disapointed.
My wife aint no Queen or Roger Taylor fan and to say she doesn't like them is an understatement... well she's going to have to get used to this playing quite a lot for a few years until his next solo release.. Here's hoping!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars British Comedy at its Best, 24 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a child I was fortunate enough to live in Luddenden where this TV Series was filmed. In our school holidays, we used to go and watch them film this and met most of the cast. Christopher Beeney once gave us a fiver between four of us. In them days we used to get 25p each a week, so a Fiver was like Xmas come early. Its great to see all the places where they filmed this, In fact the opening shot on the first episode is one with our school on, which is now longer not in use. Brilliant, on par with other British Comedy classics such as last of the summer wine, only this one was in Our neck of the woods. AND ITS NOT LANCASHIRE!!!! Its Yorkshire!!!!

This review is from: ...Like Clockwork (MP3 Download)
Queens of the Stone Age always deliver, but this album delivers a whole lot more. Much anticipated, this album had a lot to live up to, and it didn't disapoint in the slighest. There isn't a single track that you will dislike. Highly reccomend that if you buy only one album this year, make it this one..
