This review is from: The Bees (Kindle Edition)
Not usual kind of read, but I really enjoyed this well-worked story of struggling to be different in a structured society

One plug-in unit never worked, the other stopped working 3 months later. Unable to return. Just not worth the gamble.

Does not come with instructions or a diagram. A lot of messing about, but it does work. Cheaply made, so unsure for how long. This tape dispenser is an insult to amazon buyers.

1.0 out of 5 stars unplayable. returned for refund, 16 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was a big fan of the AC franchise and pre-ordred this game, looking forward to it for months. Straight away, there is a real lack of polish. Poor lip-syncing, frame rate dragging, objects and shading disappearing, lots of cut-scenes and disk access. On their own, these things can be overlooked if the plot gameplay is good.

Unfortunately, about 6 or 7% in, the game freezes when accessing the disc. Other UK reviewers on Amazon have not had this problem, I have checked online and it seems to be a common problem; nothing to do with hardware, but the game is full of glitches and released too early by a cynical software company. Don't give them your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars summer smiles, 6 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Sky Full Of Holes (Audio CD)
This album follows the previous successful pattern; well executed, upbeat power pop, clever lyrics and warming harmonies - but even better than ever. Sky Full of Holes is just what the world needs in these dark times, summer smiles on a cd. Like their other albums, I will enjoy listening to every song on this album over and over again (i hope it isn't 4 years before the next!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply a fantastic album, worth the wait!, 10 May 2004
This is an outstanding second album from the New York power-popsters, classy and thoughtful, with a distinctly modern feel.
Several features make Welcome Interstate Managers’ infinitely listenable and quite brilliant. The clever and thoughtful lyrics that were so apparent on their debut album are here. The soft-loud dynamic is worked really well, with exquisite vocal harmonies and driving guitar riffs in just the right measure. Quite a few songs cover the miracles of modern urban life – jobs, office parties, alcohol, ambition, teenage crushes, traffic jams, and many have references to the Big Apple itself. Others are reflectful pieces and there’s even a Country & Western swinger. Songs that deserve a special mention are ‘Valley Winter Song’, ‘All Kinds of Time’, ‘ Hey Julie’ and ‘Supercollider’ because they give such a strong sense of their subject.
This is the perfect hangover cure to all that Grunge we listened to as teenagers in the nineties. WIM stands out well above anything else, it is the best album I have brought for a long time.
