1.0 out of 5 stars Con Job.... Beware, 7 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is NOT the Million Dollar Quartet, as in the original live recordings known by that name, it's just another pointless crappy Rock'n'Roll compilation designed to trick fans into buying it by mistake. Have now paid more attention and bought the recordings I wanted.


1.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Buy, 13 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 20 PC HIHAT CLUTCH FELT WASHER
These felts are tiny, of no use whatsoever, you look at the picture and assume they are thick because of the hole size in relation to the depth. Hole is too small for a universal clutch so the picture is misleading.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too Hideous For Words, 5 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not Def Leppard it is Vivian Campbell & Phil Collen,Also there are no Lullabies on this CD it contains only instrumentals, lullabies have lyrics. I was hoping for some mellow versions of Def Leppard classics, maybe some new arrangements of the songs with a string section, harp, mandolin etc but ended up with sub standard elevator muzak.
It's just lazy, playing the songs a bit slower, overlaying some simple piano chords and slapping on some slide guitar,is not good enough to be sold as Def Leppard and at times sounded like the dullest and least inspiring moments of Dire Straits.
Also the baby hated it, but stopped crying when I played Bat Out Of Hell this Cd is pointless on so many levels it is hard to understand what motivated it's creation, If I'd downloaded it for free instead of paying cash for it I still would have felt cheated, do not play this to your babies unless you want to leave them emotionally scarred & musically impared.

Price: £17.23

1.0 out of 5 stars Dead End Journey, 27 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Revelation (Audio CD)
It's not as bad as Paul thinks, but he's mostly right the only songs that have any life at all are right at the end and he probably didn't endure the banality to listen that far. 'What it takes to win' & 'turn down the world tonight' have a little more gumption than the rest of this feeble offering and just happen to be the ones where the new singer isn't trying to mimic the old singer. 'The Journey' is an instrumental nod to their 70's incarnation and isn't too bad. As for the positive reviews this has recieved from others, I can only imagine they are desperate for Journey to keep going no matter what banal tripe they push out, listen to some classic albums from journey, this just doesn't make the grade. I want Journey to continue but with quality songs,most of these are not, stop pretending to like this if you care about the band and want them to get stronger allowing them to get away with lazy song writting will only lead to their downfall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not The Hoople But Good, 8 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Shouting and Pointing (Audio CD)
This sould be listed as just MOTT and is a very good album, it's far more interesting and diverse than many bands of the period which is probably why this and another MOTT album 'DRIVE' never caught on amongst the Meat Heads of rock. I have both and came across a negative review while seeing if there was any more available. Although the price is hilarious as you can still get the CD's for a few quid .... It's Not Mott The Hoople or anything like The Hoople but it stands in it's own right.
