4.0 out of 5 stars Thunder in my heart (again), 2 Jun 2014
Must say i dont like the remix but glad it gave Leo deserved success and maybe brought some new fans. Although those wanting more dance music like the thunder remix will be disappointed. I didn't like the Thunder in my Heart album when i first bought it, but having downloaded it again, i have begun to love it. Always loved the title track, should have been number 1 back then. Perfect vocal and driving song. There isn't anything is another of my favourites. I like it better than When I need you, however it sounds very similar and was a flop. I think they album was ahead of its time. Leo changes his style and vocal a lot on the album. Easy to love sees him switch effortlessly to falsetto (make me feel like dancing).
His eponymous Leo Sayer album is less good imo. Dancing the night away was average as a first single, though still good. I cant stop loving you was good, but seemed to be going too mor for my liking. Rest of the tracks are below par apart from the brilliant Frankie Lee. All in all a good purchase for the thunder album.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPERB, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb tablet. Watched Netflix no problem hooked up to my tv with a mini hdmi cable. Its like an entertainment box in one. Don't know what the more expensive tablets are like but this is pretty fast. Games are great.

Films/movies look good on the tablet . Movies played smoothly over streaming and i dont even have a fast broadband or fibre connection. I was surprised. There wasn't very much lag at all. Watched 24 and Olympus has fallen on netflix..Good connection.

Google Play has a lot of the latest movies too for around 3.49 a time. Havent tried those yet.

Wifi is very stable and strong. I took ages to decide on which tablet to buy and glad i chose this. Was worried it would be a cheapo chinese import but i cant see a hudl or the like being any better really. The instructions are terrible though, cant make them out at all but if you have a smart phone its basically the same. I sorted it fine.

Only the camera lets it down but its not really used for that. Loaded up flickr with my photos and the quality is superb. ..best purchase i've made in a while.

Can download books to read,music,films. You needn't go out! The 8gb memory holds loads of apps. Love the live wallpapers you can download from google play. I have a koi carp fish tank!

Couldnt find a lovefilm app and tesco blinkbox isnt compatible which is a shame. Cant watch the walking dead.Hoping amazon prime will be compatible though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Same songs again!, 30 July 2013
This review is from: The Impossible Dream (Audio CD)
You can tell Simon Cowell had a hand in it. How many times can people listen to yet another version of Unchained Melody.
Somewhere is always on there too. The Impossible Dream. Havent heard an operatic version of WInner Takes it All though.
The one with the deeper voice has a strange voice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Simon Cowell disaster, 11 Nov 2012
This review is from: Together (Audio CD)
They should not have been signed to Simon Cowell. We know what songs he will put on their album. Same ones that Il Divo do and other pop/opera singers. Sick to death of take that songs, especially Rule the World. Who wants to live forever...not again!! Everybody Hurts...nooooooooooo.
Absolutely love their voices but could have been much better and more songs on the album

2.0 out of 5 stars Nights On Broadway excellent,.shame about the rest, 7 Nov 2012
Bought this album when it came out. Nights on Broadway is fantastic but the rest is rubbish really. Awful R and B. Music speaks louder than words is ok as a track. No single material really.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent telly, 28 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this because of the good reviews. Good picture for standard definition. Takes a while to sort out the best picture from all the settings. A lot brighter than my panasonic plasma. Had to turn the backlight down. It was blinding! Sound isnt good, hard to hear. But when its hooked up to headphones its terrific. Remotes good but the volume and channel changer buttons should be a lot bigger. Hard to find in the dark! Pleased with it. I could have got a dvd/tv combi for the same price but went for this because of the reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars If it wasn't for the nights, 5 July 2010
This review is from: Voulez-Vous (Audio CD)
I agree If it wasn't for the nights should have been 'the' single from the album. Much better than Chiquitita and the horrid I have a dream, my least favourite abba song made even worse by the westlife cover. I think they picked all the wrong tracks for single. As good as new could have done well too. I absolutely love Dream world. With Just like that would have got them back in the top ten i'm sure. Do they have both tracks that they performed on the Mike Yarwood christmas show? They did Thank you for the music too. Unfortunately miming to both. Hilarious interview with Mike as Larry Grayson. Not my favourite abba album but still great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better more poppy, 1 July 2010
This review is from: Lionheart (Audio CD)
Didnt rate her debut album. I must be the only one! Wuthering heights was head and shoulders above the other tracks. That and Man with the child in his eyes were brilliant but the rest average i thought. Much prefer Lionheart. More wistful and some great melodies. Wow was a great single,should have been a top five. Hammer horror great pop song. Symphony in blue maybe should have been a single too instead of Hammer which bombed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible pseudo old style crooner, 1 Nov 2009
This review is from: Crazy Love (Audio CD)
The Daniel O'Donnell of canada methinks. Another wannabee sinatra clone who is mediocre at best. A voice that is emotionless and dull. Hopelessly covering a song like The Eagles Heartache Tonight trying to give it the big band treatment. Only popular on tv. Cant see the attraction at all.
