Tilly and the Wall - O
Tilly and the Wall - O
Price: £3.72

4.0 out of 5 stars O my, they're still going strong., 13 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Tilly and the Wall - O (Audio CD)
Since the beginning I have been enthralled by the innovation and exhilleration of Till and the Wall's music and their third album did not dissapoint me. It starts with the uncharacteristically mellow yet nonetheless enjoyable "Tall Tall Grass", but as soon as the first track draws to a close the band don't hesitate to engulf the listener in their trademark thumping rhythms and aggressive vocals, sung with such a sweet voice, in "Pot Kettle Black". This version of the album contains the bonus track "Beat Control" which is a welcome addition with it's catchy tune and interesting style. This is a great album for any alternative music fan.


You Are the Ref: 50 Years of the Cult Classic Cartoon Strip
You Are the Ref: 50 Years of the Cult Classic Cartoon Strip
by Paul Trevillion
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars A really great book for a football fan., 13 Jun. 2009
The theme of this book is great for anyone interested in the beautiful game, and it is made even better by the beautiful drawings of Paul Trevillion. I wasn't expecting it to have old strips - I was really just expecting a collection of the modern ones - but they were still appropriate and interesting, though you have to work through pages cluttered with newspaper clippings that are not completely relevent but still interesting. I would reccomend this book to anyone interested in football, as the questions are enjoyable and challenging mind problems for football fans.

1.0 out of 5 stars A shoddy product., 13 Jun. 2009
As soon as this product arrived it was clear it was not high quality - the stitching was loose and rough and the holes in the side to connect cables to the MP3 were not perfectly aligned. It was also not incredibly aesthetically appealing as the green outline was messy and uneven. In less than a year the magnet that holds the cover closed was tearing through its pocket and is now only held on by some glue. It obviously no longer opens and closes very well. My case is also less attractive because it has a piece of leather and metal hanging off it, exposing rough material underneath.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Game, 27 Feb. 2006
Playing the Moldovans of Tennis is the most amazing read. All through the book you are falling to pieces from laughter. In fact, I don't there is a jokeless page.
Tony does not talk about himself constantly, as a previous reviewer suggests. He often reflects on the sadness and desperation of the people of Moldova, and yet also how easily bonding they are once you get to know them.
His whole story is based on the fact that a seemingly futile quest can inspire hope and a little bit of light heartedness in to the hearts of those who need it most. This is a book that must be red by all. A good game.

2.0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't buy it again., 21 Nov. 2005
This product was really good to begin with as it was really light and quite attractive. The touch pad took some getting used to but was OK after that. However, my model did not have a radio player like I had assumed as not all the models have it - that was a bit of a dissapointment. It only plays WMAs and after a while it kept scrambling the running order of my CDs. Customer service was useless but I don't kniow if others have experienced this problem. All in all it was nice to begin with but failed after a while and is probably outdated by now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but good., 28 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Out-Of-State Plates (Audio CD)
Fountains of Wayne have really displayed their odd originality in this CD. It consists of some fantastic songs and a few slightly not-as-good ones, but all in all I thought it was a good album. They give a witty comment on each of their songs and the booklet is filled with pictures of them. All in all, CD, and worth buying.

3.0 out of 5 stars A ghost of her better books., 28 Aug. 2005
This review is from: Dead Gorgeous (Paperback)
Malorie Blackman is a fantastic auther, and has written many great books but this is a dissapointment. It was not bad, and the story was original, but it had no gripping suspence, few jokes, was very predictable, and was basically, boring. I did not stay up till who knows what time at night to finish it, as I had with Noughts and Crosses and Hacker.
So, in conclusion, not one of her best books, but a light read if you're bored.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fountains of Wayne-The emerging wonders, 21 Nov. 2004
Lets be frank about it. This is a great CD. Fountains of Wayne's original and wacky songs are great to listen to. Filled to the brim with cool rythms and brilliant instrumental use, this CD is alot more musical than you would think. The lead vocalist, Chris Collingwood, has a great voice and all together it just radiates good music. This is a brilliant CD and if you don't buy it for yourself, buy it for somebody else.
