4.0 out of 5 stars Do you remember?, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doobie Wonderland (MP3 Download)
Acid Mothers Temple have done some wonderful stuff over the years, and this has immediately gone into my favourites list of their works. As usual, this is extended, psychedelic jams with a few links to the title. If you love AMT, you'll love this. If you don't yet love them, this is a great place to start. It's not as "out there" as some of their other albums, and none of the tracks are particularly long (well, by AMT standards anyway).

Not an essential purchase, but I'd very much recommend it to long term AMT fans as well as newcomers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you like early Napalm Death (and I LOVE early Napalm Death), you might think this would be to your taste. Unfortunately it's the usual, bland, formulaic shouty noise that passes for hardcore these days. You can clearly hear who this band want to be - Gallows springs to mind - but the truth is they can play, but based on this track, they just can't write good songs. Or even average ones, come to think of it.

I remembered this is being really funny. It's extremely funny. Peter Tilbury is excellent. The remastering is really good as well, and the programmes really stand up - they could have been made yesterday, barring the very 1980s sets! :)

I love all sorts of jazz, but this is beautiful... relaxing, melodic... beautiful jazz arrangements of Swedish folk tunes... I can almost imagine listening to this in Gothenburg, snow lightly falling outside. Just wonderful.

1.0 out of 5 stars No longer worth the effort, 23 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought Sound Forge on a friend's recommendation - having used an earlier version years ago I remembered it as a lean, resource-light sound editor. Unfortunately this version is a resource-hungry snail, which insists on phoning home to Sony to validate my licence every time I start it up. So basically, Internet connection required folks.

Don't waste your money. Audacity has come along much further and faster than this, has more features, less resource use and doesn't crash so often.

Another "bought on a whim" purchase - at the price I thought I'd give it a try. Well worth it, and haven't yet found anything in here that I dislike. Amazing value!

This normally isn't my sort of music, but I saw the price, listened to the first two... to be honest, you can't really go too wrong at this price, but not only is this an unbelievable bargain I can't say I've found a bad track yet - although at a total of 12 hours long I haven't had chance to listen to it all! Superb, well recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars It just works... and works well!, 14 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I left this feedback for the original order: "I'm very impressed with this product. I picked one of my 'problem' records - it skipped literally every four or five seconds for its whole length. One application, no skips, played perfectly. Genuinely could not believe it, and I'm very happy."

To be honest, this now feels like a masterpiece of understatement: I'm delighted with this stuff. I sit there is awe, listening to what used to be a pretty sorry looking vinyl I picked out of the bargain bin sounding crisp and clear. It works even better than I thought it would. Doesn't matter what I use it on - 1950s 10" albums, modern stuff that's had a hard life, it doesn't seem to matter.

Obviously, it can't fix surface damage, and maybe a large part is that I'm surprised how much of it that looks like surface damage actually turns out not to be, but... but yes, I've used it numerous times now, and it never ceases to amaze me.

Thought to myself "well, 69p... take a chance". Good call! This is really good, and although I'm already a fan of the avant garde, this is a really great piece, especially for listening to while working. Great sound quality too, I'm already looking out for other Andriessen, having never heard of the composer before. Love it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Almost dreadful, 5 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not the worst song I have ever heard, but not far off. Imagine someone trying to sound like one of Gregg "Girl Talk" Gillis's mixes.. and failing. Yeah, you get the idea. Alas, the record companies will probably spend a lot of money promoting this, which is a shame. It would be better spent promoting something with more talent... like Vanilla Ice, maybe, or Milli Vanilli.

Avoid.
