Fandango
Fandango
Price: 5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding., 19 Dec 2013

This review is from: Fandango (MP3 Download)
Extraordinary music from a unique collection of artists - an appropriate moniker for a collection that clearly don't consider the conventional an option when putting together an album. Subtle, sophisticated, and at times soaring tracks are in abundance in what is both the Phoenix Foundations most poppy album to date, and its least commercial (unless you can think of another 20min track that gets radio airplay...).

5.0 out of 5 stars My album of the year., 19 Dec 2013

This review is from: Blackbird (Audio CD)
It's great to see Fat Freddy's continuing to develop. Each of their albums has brought something new and interesting to the table, making the wait for them all the more palatable. Here their sound becomes darker, funkier, more insistent, rolling. It is still recognisably a Fat Freddy's album - they have a very recognisable sounds after all - but the departure of their previous Alto Sax Hohepa and what feels like a reining in of Dallas brings a structural slickness to the funk. Full of great tracks, it has been the stand out disc of the year for me.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good sound, terrible build quality, 19 Dec 2013

Excellent sound and noise isolation. But they fell apart within a couple of weeks (one of the earbuds literally fell off, and the mid-chord connector started to fail) - all after light regular use. Sent back for a refund.


Cryptonomicon
Cryptonomicon
by Neal Stephenson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best books I've ever read, 19 April 2012
This review is from: Cryptonomicon (Paperback)
The breadth of ambition is startling, and it is equally amazing that Neal Stephenson is able to take subjects that are not often found in novels (cryptographic algorithms, and minority shareholders rights for example) part of a story on equal footing with discussion of the true nature of duty, love, gods and value. This story feels topical to the point of prescience, and yet equally vividly historical. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone to read this genuinely vital and relevant on what it means to live in a world where information and power are increasingly synonymous.
