Its a nice collection of familiar and catchy songs but the Xmas theme gets a bit boring, I am not exaggerating seriously every single song on this is basically about Xmas. I think it will have limited appeal - I mean its not going to be played much in the summer months, or spring, or autumn - basically only around Xmas. Frankly I wish I'd bought a more adaptable CD. My other CD can be played almost any time of year.

The Dark Side Of The Moon

5.0 out of 5 stars Long lost classic - worth revisiting., 23 Aug. 2015
The last human to walk on the actual moon was in 1973 after Louis Armstrongs and Buzz Lightyears historical landing in 1955. This album too last saw the light of day back in the strange years before Russia became our good friend and the mobile interweb was invented in 1977.
This is an interesting record originally released back in the early 1970s and here cleverly unearthed for a new audience. In my view this is about time - this really is quite an interesting record with elements of jazz and, what was known at the time as Progressive rock along with hints of gospel and interesting and unusual use of sampled speech and found sounds, It really does deserve to be better known and has been, for me, one of the great lost records of that largely forgotten decade. The songs, or tracks as we would tend to call them now, were designed to be played together with an over arching idea or 'concept' in the rather pretentious language of the era - I must admit the core ideas have rather escaped me but I believe are connected to modern life and contemporary definitions of insanity. I am not an expert but I understand the group had made earlier LPs under the original band name Sid Barrett and the Pink Floyds but as to what became of them after these album this remains a total mystery. There are rumours that they retired to Cambridge or Ironbridge - and continue to work on artistic matters but under other names. Perhaps they are, ahem, on the dark side of the moon (just my little joke).

This double album breaks all the rules. Most double albums should in fact of been carefully edited down to an excellent single album (perhaps saving the filler for the increasingly inevitable De Luxe edition, after waiting a few weeks of course.) I won't provide a list of examples as we can all think of many for ourselves. No. This album is not like that. The complex taboo subject of death itself is here explored from a myriad angles but when one considers how many other animals there are - I can only hope that a quadruple disc box set will emerge a more detailed, prolonged and deep examination of the artist's chosen arena.

An unforgettable work of art.

1.0 out of 5 stars I prefer the early stuff, 8 Feb. 2015
This review is from: Live From San Quentin (Audio CD)
I prefer the early stuff - joking aside it does raise the issue of whether the artistic work of monsters should be available at all - but what a sad world it would be without the works of Rolf Harris, Gary Glitter and Jonathon King...oh and that actor who played Dirty Den in Eastenders back in the 90s - well he did time for Murder.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not A Spoiler, 16 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Original Sin (Paperback)
Stiltman !! It was Stiltman what did it - thought I'd save youse some time - of course Marvel have been keeping the Big Dog quiet for decades making this comeback all the sweeter. I knew back in the 60s when Daredevil - a bloke in a suit - took out this most impressive of villians that Stilts would come back - and here he does. And with his new Watcher-tecj enhanced stilts he can become even taller even quicker making him surely the most dangerous baddie in the Marveloverse since the much missed Paste Pot Pete. Ok Marvel - heres an idea for the follow up - free from me to you - next Pate Pot Pete takes out Galactus, and with his Galactus-enhanced tech goes on the rampage - yeah I know its brilliant - bring it on Dudes.

This review is from: Planet Caravan (MP3 Download)
I'm not really much of a fan of Black Sabbath. Even as a long haired lout growing up in the 70s Birmingham still preferred Purple, Crimson, and Pink (Floyd not Fairys) - all the colours really other than the Black. But this is a beautiful soothing spaced out trip - why (oh why ?) did they not do more delicate stuff like this. Mighty Fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't believe noone else has reviewed this., 18 May 2014
This is the second part of the third book in the series - its even been on the telly ! Its interesting and complex and unpredictable. I bet when some other people find out about this book there will be some more reviews. One or two people talk about it on the internet (I'm told)

4.0 out of 5 stars Odin is a drag, a real drag., 29 Mar. 2014
I enjoy the courage and power of the Mighty Thor - but why is Odin such a pain ? If the universe is in danger - well Odin might be deep in the 'Odin sleep' or having a deep Odin brood that cannot be interupted. Then wheh Thor is really up against it - in steps the ever helpful Odin and banishes him or halves his power, hides his hammer or something - awful. Loki is a mate compared to Thor's father - who always steps in and makes a bad situation worse. Odin - you are a pain in the AMAZON RESERVES THE RIGHT TO EDIT REVIEWS.
