4.0 out of 5 stars I haven't used it yet but it seems fine for the price, 13 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't used it yet but it seems fine for the price, which was pretty cheap by my reckoning (two quid). It isn't a triumph of craftmanship but it looks like the pictures, the zip runs smoothly and it seems fit for purpose which is all I was hoping for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute and practical - sound quality reflects price, 14 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I haven't had this long and I only use it to play CDs, although it has quite a few other functions. It is very practical and looks great. My only reservation is the sound quality. I probably shouldn't be expecting so much from something so cheap, and it is probably much the same as most things in this price band, but it is worth remembering if you normally use even mid-range equipment that you will hear the difference when you get something like this. Having said that, the sound is acceptable in that it is clear and audible, so it would be fine for spoken word / talk radio or background music, but I wouldn't play an album I wanted to actually listen to on it. It does have a headphone jack though, if you wanted better quality and weren't planning on moving around much. Aside from that I am very happy with the product.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good pillow - has that magic memory foam quality of being firm yet soft, so it offers good neck support whilst being very comfy on the head. It's quite voluminous when fully plumped up, so it can feel a bit like your head is in it rather than on it, hence only four stars, but to be fair that has never kept me awake at night (so to speak). All in all I'm very happy with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's All True - But It's Amazing, 12 May 2010
Looking at the reviews on this page - especially the bad ones - I can't really disagreed with any of them. It seems that most negative feedback comes from people who were hoping for a fun and uplifting kids' movie. They're right - they didn't get it. They got something bigger and better - an beautiful and enchanting treatise on the nature of human relationships. I believe it can be enjoyed by kids (I saw it in the cinema with my four year old, and she sat through it pretty well, though not as well as, say, Ponyo) but that isn't really what its about. It is, as has been observed, a movie for adults about being a kid, and it captures that innocence and exuberance very viscerally. It also conveys the heartbreaking necessity of losing that innocence and reining in the exuberance, in a way that probably went straight over my daughter's head but left the adults in the group surreptitiously wiping their eyes. So, I would thoroughly recommend it on that basis - as a truly great work of magical existentialism, more for fans of Guillermo Del Toro than Horton Hears A Who.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice mix but lacking focus, 8 Mar. 2010
I already have the first of these compilations, which is great (probably a bit better than this, but it's hard to say when you have 2CDs of wildly varied music). I was hoping that this one would explore different territory to the first, perhaps with a more even mood or a different overall feel, but it didn't do that for me. I didn't really feel that it was a Pagan Love Vibration as distinct from Cosmic Space Music. So, if you loved the first one and want more of the same, you're in luck. If you are looking for a different vibe then I'm sorry to burst your Monstrous Bubble, but it's not going to do the trick IMHO.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Musical World, 8 Mar. 2010
This review is from: The Amazing Charlatans (Audio CD)
I bought this on the strength of a couple of tracks on compilations and the reputation of the band within the 60s San Francisco scene. I was expecting something with a psych/rock/folk sound, perhaps like Psychedelic Pillow with a bit of Quicksilver Messenger Service thrown in. What it turned out to be is much more interesting and, in many ways, more captivating. The music is not really psychedelic in its sound (except the notable anomaly Not On The Same Trip), but one might say that it is in its outlook. It is basically quite acoustic and rootsy, but with a solid and upbeat rhythm section that gives it an appeal to a more 'rock' sensibility. But the influences range from country to blues to honky-tonk to ragtime, all played with an infectious sound (lovely instrumentation and harmonies) and enthusiasm. The photos of the band are the icing on the cake - from the outfits they are quite clearly a bunch of hippies, but this is because of their radical individualism rather than conformity to a generic hippie appearance. Each has a very distinctive, historically-based look, but with a sixties feel rather than a faithful reproduction. And I could say much the same about the songs. The overall effect is quite enchanting, with simple but classy songs, quality musicianship, and a great sense of fun.
