2.0 out of 5 stars Bit Lightweight., 9 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Electrospective (Audio CD)
Although pleasant enough to listen to this album is lightweight and very samey, sounds like it was created by somebody on a PC in their bedroom (which it probably was). Not enough variation in sound to merit more stars.

Well researched and very interesting book on Rushden. Includes lists of local people from documents held at Northants Records Office. If you want some good background information for your family tree look no further.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Period Piece, 9 Oct. 2011
Although not in the same league as some BBC wartime adaptations this is still well worth purchasing. Simon Cadell is light years away from Hi De Hi and perfect in the role of SS Officer. I was a bit apprehensive about watching him in this but any fears were dispelled right from the beginning. I would have liked to have seen more Islanders, the Doctor (well played by Bernard Horsfall) seems to be the only person in contact with the Germans.

If you like the C86 sound you should like this album, not a million miles away from Shop Assistants et al. One thing it does have over those bands from yesteryear is a bit of variety. Love the artwork. A breath of fresh air in a stagnating music world.

This review is from: CROOKS & LOVERS (Audio CD)
Have listened to this a few times now but I just can't get into it, there is no substance in this music at all. My other half thought that somebody was playing ping pong on one of the tracks. Too shallow for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Style Over Content, 14 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just finished watching this DVD boxset. What can I say? Well it's nowhere near as good as other people say it is in their reviews. It's incredibly well made, with good acting and attention to detail but what happened to the storyline? It moves along at a snails pace (slow even for an American TV series). There is way too much fluff in the series. The characters are so unlikeable I thought I was watching Eastenders. They have no morals. The writers obviously had a theme - get a sin into each episode. Shame really because I wanted to like this.

This review is from: Underneath The Pine (Audio CD)
Have been playing this CD for weeks now, great album from otherwise unknown (to me ) artist. Like the keyboards and sounds like nothing else I've heard. Seems to be catergorised under 'Chillwave' but ignore that moniker and enjoy. Haven't listened to a better LP all year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not bad, 8 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy 4 stars, good album, tunes stick in your head, it is nothing new but if you like a good song then you can't go wrong. I love the label on the CD, that's worth 5 stars, reminds me of my Wombles 7" CBS labels back in the 1970's.

5.0 out of 5 stars God Bless, 31 July 2010

This review is from: Played (Audio CD)
At long last, the Holy Grail of LP's to CD finally arrives. I've had to make do with a scratchy vinyl copy for years and now can bask in the digital aura of one of C86's finest bands. And about time too!


Margerine Eclipse

5.0 out of 5 stars A five starrer if I ever I heard one, 1 April 2009
This review is from: Margerine Eclipse (Audio CD)
This album is a five starrer nothing less, it's light and airy, (not as heavy as the last album), it's better than some bands greatest hits CD's it's that good.
