A summery feel good album. Melody clear sounds not cheesy. Takes me back to 1995. A must buy for any music lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1995 and all that!, 29 Sept. 2013

So then the summer of 1995 will go down as a hot and sunny one. The chart battle at the bank holiday weekend made headline news! Indie guitar pop is here to stay..............well it didn't of course. It evolved and re-evolved in many guises but it never quite had the innocent tunes and chart bothering success of the Britpop era.

Thank goodness that the Smith Westerns have a fascination with that period as their 3rd album would not look out of a place in a top album list of 1995. However before you all run to the hills thinking Gene are back with a new name, this album takes the template of the mid nighties and gives it a modern twist.......what am i kidding this is pure nostalgia

Every track has a tune and a great hook that makes you want to play it on repeat over and over again.

It nods to the 1990's but you can hear traces of 60's pop and even 70's prog, Take the track XXIII this it mirrors Pink Floyd's Great Gig In The Sky.

If you remember heading down the indie disco in your youth and dancing the night away this album will take you there!!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Could do better, 10 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought this product hoping to do away with traditional speedo problems of is this the right tire size, has it been set up right, too many wires at the front of the bike etc. Well it certainly get rids of these frustrations but sadly it has been replaced with other ones.

3 things to think about:

1) it takes time for the GPS to be enacted, so if you want to jump on the bike quickly often you have to wait 2 minutes for the signal to work

2) GPS works on signals between the unit and a satelite far up in the sky, so if you are cycling along tree lined roads, or cycle ways on old railway lines with cuttings, bridges and over hanging trees then the performance is poor. I kept the tradtional speedo on the bike along side the GPS to compare and often the GPS records incorrect speeds, the altitude option on the GPS (a fine idea and one of the reasons to buy it) is laughable. When the signal is blocked it gets very confused and at one point I was supposed to be 1o feet beneath sea level while really I was at 300 feet

3) Lastly one of the good things with the GPS is you can plug it into the PC and record your routes and stats. A CD is provided to download the programme. Its quite good to get your routed plotted on a google map. That would be great if the stats would successfully be moved from the GPS to your PC. Often it fails to do so. The entry comes up on the PC but no stats. The program is bogged down and easily crashes and there are no help options to explain how to use it.

So all in all a huge shame. Sorry to go on but I had such high hopes but its been a bit of a let down. You spend more time trying to work out how to get it to work than actually going biking!

But what is good is the customer service it has been top quality! Very helpful quick to respond. Full of detail top draw!
