Orbus Terrarum
Orbus Terrarum
Offered by music_by_mail_uk
Price: £14.54

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, 4 July 2015
This review is from: Orbus Terrarum (Audio CD)
Orbus Terrarum is one of the most original masterpieces of music I have encountered and enjoyed for over fifteen years. Whereas uforb and ultraworld provide a journey into deep space, terrarum evokes images of an earth-like yet alien planet of fantastical landscapes, shimmering lakes, psychedelic ornamental gardens, clunking clockwork and cogs, chirruping insects and otherworldly entities (and lettuce-eating slugs!!) all of which are experienced as if from a victorian hot-air balloon! Well this is what springs to mind whilst drinking tea this morning and rediscovering this wonderful album. Very inspirational!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, welcome to outer shpongolia!, 29 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant dvd showcasing the wonderful, weird, colourful, melodic shpongle in a beautiful venue. This is a cross between musical theatre/performance, a psychedelic voyage through colour and sound, beautiful tunes, and some amazing musicians. Shpongle definitely push the limits and are genuinely groundbreaking - this dvd shows they know how to throw an incredible party (esp towards the end!). Raja ram's flute playing is lovely, and the lead guitarist is incredible, all backed up by the genius that is simon posford and his fellow musicians. If you've never heard of shpongle but enjoy listening to weird and wonderful music, combined with original and colourful performance, then have a look at this dvd! Although i wasn't at this gig, watching it on dvd definitely captures the amazing atmosphere - it would have been even better maybe to have a short extra section on the dvd showing the after party with dj lucas!

3.0 out of 5 stars An oddball of a game!, 12 Mar. 2015
This review is from: Screamride (Xbox One) (Video Game)
Hmmm...not too sure about this game, yet! It is quirky and original that's for sure! Some of the ideas are good re.three different modes etc, but it doesn't have any of the charm or appeal of rollercoaster tycoon! However, if you have the patience, the sandbox editing mode probably looks to be the best feature of the game - it is clearly a complex and detailed way to build your futuristic coasters, but there's none of the 'theming' or challenge of roller coaster tycoon e.g. getting people into your park, making enough money to build new theme park attractions etc. However, this is an entirely different game and may be of interest to some gamers. I would definitely say try before you buy, if possible! It's all very clinical and futuristic but that leaves me a little cold tbh! On the one hand, it's good fun to dip into, but there r other games on the xbox one that are simply incredible re.Alien! Maybe scream ride will be more of a grower than is immediately apparent! I wanted to really like this game but at the moment it is a little forgettable, sorry!

5.0 out of 5 stars a haunting masterpiece!, 17 Oct. 2014
This review is from: Environment Five (Audio CD)
A very moving album by fsol.....melancholy, lonely but full of warmth, music to listen to on your own , whilst out walking in the autumn sun......a thought- provoking and original piece of audio magic! In a way, this is like a electronic-instrumental version of lifeforms in that it evokes weird and wonderful soundscapes......real music that doesn't conform to the mould!

The Wilful Princess and the Piebald Prince (Farseer)
The Wilful Princess and the Piebald Prince (Farseer)
by Robin Hobb
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.48

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent tale!, 30 Nov. 2013
This latest publication by Robin Hobb is an excellent read. Hobb writes both beautifully and succinctly and presents an interesting short story, complete with some nice illustrations. It seems that the negative reviews have resulted due to the issue with kindle - this presumably is something outside the author's control, so giving this book just one or two stars isn't at all fair and by no means reflects this latest offering from Hobb who is undoubtedly a very talented writer. I even had the pleasure of attending her book launch at an event in Nottingham and she is clearly a very gifted and thoughtful person. So, maybe order the physical copy rather than kindle! Great as kindles can be, and very useful, i still think that real books still easily surpass an etext! Books have a magic about them whereas an etext is a little soulless, although useful if you are travelling a lot!

5.0 out of 5 stars Original and mysterious, 16 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Even Tundra (MP3 Download)
This is an interesting and original piece of electronica....very surreal and dreamy, in places strange...but wonderful! It's like no other electronica i know! Worth checking out if you're after something different and well produced! I think this would confuse most mainstream 'clubbers' but would appeal to those more into underground experimental music. A welcome addition to twisted record's growing showcase of quality music!

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm earthy bouncy psytrance, 11 Sept. 2013

This review is from: Now (Audio CD)
This album is a good example of the better side of psytrance. It contains lots of magical psy sounds and bounces along very happily. If you like oood, maybe u will like this too! Plenty of goa influence including complex melodies rather than the somewhat soulless sound of some psytrance. Definitely worth checking out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!, 7 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Lifetracks (Audio CD)
This album is great! Beautiful dreamy soundscapes, quite gentle but not at all bland re.other reviews. If u r familiar with the art of zoning out and enjoy dreaming, then u might like this!
