5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!, 28 Feb. 2015

Excellent cleaner. Light, easy to manoeuvre, small and neat to store, really excellent dirt pick-up on both carpets and hard floors. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars beautiful ambient music - the final part of the trilogy ..., 17 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dark, beautiful ambient music - the final part of the trilogy that begins with Huronic Minor and continues with The Phantom Light. This is perhaps the darkest of the three, rather edgier and more restless than Huronic Minor, but with the same depth and beauty of sound. Highly recommended - but do use the best speakers, or better, headphones you have to hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really excellent tablet, and very good value, 26 Nov. 2014
Really excellent tablet, and very good value. The screen is absolutely superb, pin sharp, glare free, and with a wide, comfortable viewing angle. The battery life is very reasonable, and the tablet runs all applications fast and smoothly. This is a beautiful, solidly built piece of kit, and well able to stand up to travelling everywhere in one's bag, and being used daily for office applications, browsing, reading (the Windows 8.1 Kindle app could have been written for this!) or watching movies. Considering this is the full Windows 8.1 (not RT) and a year's subscription to Office 365 is included, I can't recommend this little tablet highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars How excellent, then, 26 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quaker Faith & Practice is the essential companion for any Quaker. The only problem is that, at 688pp for the 5th edition, it is a decidedly chunky thing to put in a shoulder bag. How excellent, then, to have an electronic version that can live on one's phone, and on one's tablet, to travel everywhere but to add no extra burden? Thanks, Amazon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, engaging, 15 Nov. 2014

This review is from: The Endless River (MP3 Download)
Beautiful, engaging, even at times relaxing music, with some of Wright's and Gilmore's finest instrumental work. The latter's fluid, lyrical solos are as much of a joy as they always were. A lovely coda to Pink Floyd's long recording career, and a fitting memorial to Rick Wright, and yet... There was always an edge to the Floyd when Roger Waters was involved that is lacking here, as it was lacking from The Division Bell. It's not the irreplaceable bass-playing, only - for all his occasional bombastic and pretentious lapses (The Wall!) Waters is a giant among songwriters and lyricists, and listening to a non-Waters Pink Floyd album is for me always tinged with regret.


The Distant Lights of Forgotten Places

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Lahiff - if you like Steve Roach or Matt Borghi, 1 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Classic Lahiff - if you like Steve Roach or Matt Borghi, this is very well worth a listen. Andrew Lahiff has more form and structural evolution, perhaps, than either of these - at times he reminds me of Biosphere, without that icy northern edge. Lahiff's pads are deep, involving, and often simply beautiful. The music goes somewhere, albeit often lost in stillness and wonder, and the album evolves, track by track, into a statement of bright sadness and long reflection. Brilliant stuff!

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, reliable everyday mouse, 5 Aug. 2014

Solid, reliable everyday mouse at an excellent price. Good name, too - this is probably the most comfortable mouse I've used, even for prolonged, detailed work. A keeper.


Luger LG 8x21 Compact Binoculars - Grey/Black
Luger LG 8x21 Compact Binoculars - Grey/Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Good general purpose compact binoculars, 5 Aug. 2014
Excellent, lightweight compact binoculars. Very little colour fringing, good field of view for compact binoculars. What is surprising is the brightness of the image in low light. With only 21mm objectives I was a bit worried, but needlessly: these are bright and sharp well into twilight. Though the rubber eyecups do not fold down, they work perfectly well with spectacles. I have had these binoculars for a couple of years now, and I've used them in the rain in Dorset and in hot dusty conditions in the Middle East, and they have never let me down. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm really delighted with these, 14 July 2014

Really superb speakers. The sound is warm and detailed, and the frequency response even and balanced, with a remarkably solid, effortless bass response. Loud too, considering their modest size. I'm really delighted with these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Raw, 14 July 2014

This review is from: Smoke Fairies (MP3 Download)
Excellent! Raw, stripped back songs that show Smoke Fairies in a new light. These are lean, sinewy pieces with their musical ribs showing, and a spare, electric edge that seems a long way from their earlier, more folk-tinged work. Very well worth a listen.
