3.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 / 5, 18 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Jiaolong (Audio CD)
Lack of depth/soul, unmoved by this.
Perhaps shouldn't come to it as a fan of his oeuvre.
One for the clubbers out there I think, smacks of a bit of a stopgap release - back in the day these would have appeared as b-sides to accompany the good stuff..

5.0 out of 5 stars You need to.., 13 Dec. 2014
This review is from: The 5 Eps (Audio CD)
..buy this!
Get in your cups, and by the time you get to track 7, well...
Previous reviewer summed it up nicely.
Indescribable, and pretty much indispensable.

1.0 out of 5 stars One star is generous, 26 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Parades (Audio CD)
Did nothing for me and went on far too long.
Audition carefully if you really think you should buy this on the strength of some happy clappy reviews.
Quite awful.
Don't waste your time.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's the choons?, 25 Nov. 2014
This review is from: The Sauce (Audio CD)
Really wanted to like this, as I found their stuff interesting back in the day.
It hasn't aged well, but still sounds a little dangerous if that's your bag.
An interesting experiment, but quite pointless nonetheless.
The later album has a little more tempo/variation - go for that if you must.

3.0 out of 5 stars Frustratingly brief, 25 Nov. 2014
This review is from: The Call Of The Cosmos (Audio CD)
If you ignore the awful cod-ambient filler in the middle of this EP (4&5), you're left with 25 minutes of vaguely interesting psychedelic space pop/rock - I have to say I'd have been more impressed if the artist was a little more generous with his product..
As it is, the remaining tracks piqued my interest enough to leave me wanting more.
Careful what you pay for this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dog rough ?, 19 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Tyrannosaur [DVD] (DVD)
Considine shows remarkable restraint in what some have called a brutal film - there's real poetry in this, and very moving too.
This film only really skims the surface of life up North, but will probably be an eye-opener for some, judging by the comments of some reviewers.
Finding it hard to find a flaw in this - seek out Wild Bill and Harry Brown for more of the same UK grit.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's in a name?, 26 Oct. 2014
If you like to spend time with Colleen or Susumo, then you'll enjoy the first disc of this triple.
Sparse and beautifully realised found sound collages.
Shakkei develops these original themes, introduces the odd (often unresolved) melody at times and is a different animal - a little more upbeat and accompanied - reminded me of Nyman/Yokota in places.
The 3rd, Shakkei Remixed, moves it on a stage, and to my ears is unmissable - some amazing interpretations by several masters of the genre.
If you can find this for under a tenner, you're onto a winner.
Recommended.
