3.0 out of 5 stars NOT BAD, 15 Mar. 2013
This review is from: The Next Day (Audio CD)
I really wanted to love this album.It's ok but that's not good enough from the great man.
I love the new single and a few other songs and Bowies voice is great.The music is at times excellent but the songs are not good enough.
I didn't really expect a return to form but this is a good effort.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Mainstream, 6 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Mirage Rock (Audio CD)
Whilst Infinite Arms was one of my favourite albums,tho a move towards mainstream it was rich warm lush beautiful record.Mirage Rock however generally nondescript country rock.The production is raved about but has taken much of their sound away.
Its a shame as I tried to give it many listens but becomes boring after four or five tracks.Its not a terrible album at all and has some excellent songs on it but I expected so much more.Silly me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, 1 April 2012
This review is from: Shallow Bed (Audio CD)
A superb debut from Dry the River.Dont be put put off by Mumford comparisons,this is a far deeper and musically rich offering.Mumford are a mere pop band compared to these.I hear echos of Arcade Fire in the rich dense instrumentation and high vocals but they are certainly not mere copyists. A band to watch for sure!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, 13 Mar. 2012
This review is from: The God Delusion (Paperback)
This is an excellent well written well thought out book but it tends to preach to the already converted.Fundamentalists will not even look at the book and even if they did how can you change the views of people who believe the earth is 6000yrs old, despite overwhelming proof that is far far older.
As an atheist the book gathers together and makes sense of my my own existing views, plus plenty of other thing to make you think.ie The USA was intended to be a secular country with religion playing no part in government!Or the Trinity, Father Son and Holy Ghost are actually 3 gods masquerading as one.
Living on a religious Scottish Island I see daily the misery caused by fundamentalism but also the good that moderate caring Christianity can do.

This review is from: Helplessness Blues (MP3 Download)
Very difficult second album but I think they have produced a classic.Takes a while to grow on you but when it does its well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sound of Summer, 12 July 2009
This review is from: Sunny Side Up (Audio CD)
I disliked These Streets and still do but this is superb.After a stunning performance at Glasto I gave this album a listen.Love his voice, the diverse range of styles and a really hot band.Not deep music by any means but quality soulful feelgood summer sounds
