This review is from: Dynamite (Audio CD)
'Dynamite' is the British funk band Jamiroquai's sixth studio album, and they prove to be as good as ever in this punchy, disco-inspired effort.

The album starts with the single 'Feels Just Like It Should' which reached number 8 on the UK singles chart in June 2005 and number 1 on the US Dance Chart. It's quite a fun song about what runs through a nerd's mind as he goes to visit a hooker; it features a bass line created by Jay Kay beat-boxing. While it isn't the album's best song, in my opinion, it is by no means a bad track.

The next track is the title track and this is where 'Dynamite' really gets going; a cool 70s-esque disco song that would have made a good single. Track three is the second and best single 'Seven Days in Sunny June', an acoustic-guitar led tale of unrequited love that harks back to the band's earlier acid jazz sound; this segues into funky synth track 'Electric Mistress'.

Other highlights include 'Starchild', chilled, laid-back 'Tallulah' and 'Love Blind'. In addition, single '(Don't) Give Hate a Chance' is the eighth track: an anti-hate (hence the name) disco track. Personally, whilst I appreciate the message Jay and co are trying to put out, I think this is one of the weaker tracks on the album.

Afterwards we have 'World That He Wants', a sombre piano-led ballad about George W. Bush, whom, as another reviewer points out, Jay Kay clearly resented (indeed, in the liner notes, Jay Kay writes "I would not like to thank George W. Bush who continues to mess up OUR world.") This is followed by much more upbeat 'Black Devil Car', which Jay Kay wrote as a tribute to his black Ferrari Enzo. Afterwards, it's 'Hot Tequila Brown', another funk/disco song which is reportedly about Jay's former cocaine addiction. The last track is 'Time Won't Wait', another retro-inspired disco track; this was a bonus track on the UK, US and Japanese releases of the album.

All in all, this is a very good, solid album with lots of great tracks (in fact, there's not one bad song on there). The only thing is that I personally would recommend that you listen to it in order and from start to finish. If you are a fan of Jamiroquai and you don't have this album, well you know what to do. If not but you are into disco and funk music, buy it anyway.

I bought this watch for my nine year old daughter, who absolutely loved it. It is a very good watch and simple to operate. Not much else I can say, apart from it being very good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely children's series, 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: HELLO BUNNIES (DVD)
My daughter (and I!) used to love watching this on Playhouse Disney, and she was rather disappointed when they removed it from the schedules when it changed to Disney Junior. My daughter and I used to like dancing to the music on this, and she is pleased we now can again.

It is a very cute programme about a town populated by rabbits, hence the name 'Bunnytown'. There are many different bunny characters and situations, such as the king and his court, Superbunny and his enemy Little Bad Bunny, Farmer Gramps and a bunny rock and roll band.

Another regular feature is when one of the bunnies ventures to the human world, known as 'Peopletown' and watches the action from his burrow. There is a spoof sports broadcast known as 'Super Silly Sports', featuring events such as a race between a chicken and an egg, and a silent slapstick duo known as Red and Fred.

As I said, this is no longer shown on TV, and I thoroughly recommend this to anyone whose kids used to watch this or if you're just looking for something for your young children to watch.

One Foot in the Grave Complete Series 1 - 6 Plus Christmas Specials Box Set [DVD] [1990]

5.0 out of 5 stars UNBELIEVABLE! The complete series in one set!, 17 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a complete set of One Foot in the Grave, including Christmas specials, as it says in the title. At the current price of £18.50 for 42 episodes, this works out at 44p per episode. There is also a documentary about One Foot in the Grave and several commentaries.

So, anyway, anyone familiar with One Foot in the Grave knows that it is about grumpy, sarcastic, middle-aged Victor Meldrew, who is forced into early retirement from his job as a security guard in the first episode. This sets the scene for the rest of the series. With Victor bored at home, his exasperated wife Margaret has to bear the brunt of his moaning. However, she loves him dearly, as we see in several episodes.

One of my favourite elements of this programme is the once per series 'bottle episode', which takes place in one setting. These range from Victor and Margaret having a sleepless night in bed, to Victor bored home alone on call for jury service, to Victor and Margaret in the waiting room of the solicitor's.

Anyway, I'd advise any one interested in this series to pick this up, as at £18.50 (at the time of writing) this is tremendous value.

Oh, and one more thing: I DON'T BELIEVE IT!
